Asra Nomani (Muslim Author at The Daily Beast) - "Profile me"

Video embedded below.


  1. Last week a debate aired on Bloomberg’s Intelligence Squared program achieved exactly what the proverbial media managers would have wanted. The petition “U.S. airports should use racial and religious profiling” which was debated in the worlds leading cosmopolitan, definitely the most diverse city, New York, resulted in majority favoring profiling. What surprised me more than the result was the panel.

    Among others Asra Nomani, a Muslim American woman for whom I have tremendous respect (read: My Daughter’s Azan) was for the motion while Michael Chertoff, a Bush administration neo-con who will be remembered for his failure in New Orleans was against the motion.

    The motion sought profiling of Muslim men ages 15 to 30 “from a handful of countries and ethnicities.” Premise was that all Muslims are not terrorists but all terrorists seem to be Muslim.

    Asra Nomani told the audience of the show who later favored profiling: “I stand before you and I say, profile me. Profile my family. Profile my father because inside of our Muslim community, I fundamentally believe that we have failed to police ourselves. We have failed our country here in America. We have failed our world.”

    Her statement reminded me of a famous Gore Vidal quote: “Persuading people to vote against their own best interests has been the awesome genius of the American political elite.”

    I agree with Asra that an extremist interpretation of Islam seems to be gaining currency around the world and we ought to be more vigilant (please read my article on Shahzad Faisal’s crazy attempt), but she does not speak for me when she invites profiling of my sons and nephews – and millions of Muslim American.

    Her position is flawed at many different levels. How do you determine who is Muslim? I am assuming by name. Let me give you six names (Rashid, Khalid, Ibrahim, Shams, Faisal and Ahmar). Please tell me which one of this person is a Muslim, Atheist, Christian, Agnostic and Buddhist? Will you be surprised if I told you that all of these five ideological strains are represented in these six names? What if I said four out of these six are siblings. This is absolutely real. How else will you determine our religion? Look at our genitals? All six of us are circumcised – not much of a differentiator there. And, how do you know that someone name Jose Padila is a Muslim? How about a blue eyed, blonde hair Caucasian man name Joseph McNary. Do you know he is a Muslim?


  2. Pakistan,Richard Reid,ICTS International,Daniel Pearl and WSJ’s and Georgetown University’s Islamic Agitator Asra Nomani:

    Daniel Pearl’s supposed friend,Asra Nomani, who thinks she’s Miss Islam USA IS COVERING UP(NOT INVESTIGATING!),the death of her ‘friend’
    Daniel Pearl and as far as I can tell so is Daniel Pearl’s daddy.Neither Asra Nomani nor Judea Pearl really want Pearl’s 8 year old son to know the truth because that would expose Israelis of ICTS International that ‘guarded’ Logan Airport Boston and Newark Airport on 9/11 and who shortly later allowed Richard Reid the shoebomber to board American Airlines from DeGualle Airport Paris France with his ‘shoe bomb’ and of course more recently the Nigerian ‘crotch bomber’ to board flight 253 at the Dutch anti-Islamic politician Geert Wilder’s Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam on Christmas 2009.
    Judea Pearl and Islamic Tantric Yogi,(Asra Nomani), are part of the cover up of Pearl’s death and Judea Pearl dirties his son’s name as well by not coming clean about Richard Reid’s trip to Israel pre 9/11 that was aided by both Israel and ICTS International that allowed him to fly from Amsterdam to Israel supposedly to visit his friends at Hamas !
    If Jude Pearl were sincere in wanting to expose all involved in the death of his son regardless of where it leads or Asra Nomani were sincere in her desire to fight for women’s rights in Islamic countries both would have my sympathy.But it appears Nomani is only concerned about herself and the right wing nuts,murderers and money launderers and terrorists she protects such as U.S. government CIA connected Fox News Middle East ‘expert’ Mansoor Ijaz whose contacts in Pakistan led to Daniel Pearl’s death in the first place.And obviously Judea Pearl wants to ignore the fact Richard Reid the ’shoe bomber’ was allowed to enter Israel on El Al pre 9/11 and ICTS International's Israeli spooks later allowed him to board at De Gualle Airport,Paris,France to fly American Airlines to the U.S. with his 'shoe bomb'.

    Below Asra Nomani's reply to my queries on the thedailybesast re Daniel Pearl,Richard Reid and ICTS International proves Asra Nomani is purposefully silent re the Israeli ICTS International's involvement with and roe in allowing Richard Reid 'the shoe bomber' to board at De Gualle for the U.S.shortly after 9/11/01 even though she knows
    Daniel Pearl's main explained reason for traveling to Pakistan in the first place was to
    investigate Richard Reid's past trips there.:


    Dear TonyRyals,

    Honestly, I don't really get where you're coming from. But, sadly, I never visited Israel with Danny. I went after Danny's murder with my family, after we had completed the hajj in Saudi Arabia. I had a gun pointed to my head as I walked through the checkpoint to get into the Dome of the Rock, where I wish all people could pray.

    It's easy to level conspiracy theories upon others. But I would gently suggest that the truth is far often much more boring. Right now, my highest priority is figuring out how to get my son weighed in for the "ankle biter" divison of tackle football and still get to Kings Dominion with a friend on Sunday. Boring.

    I'm not part of some grand conspiracy. I agree Mansur Ijaz is an interesting character. One day, I will pick up the phone to do a reported profile on him.

    Until then, thanks for writing, Asra
