ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the importance of profiling Muslims as means of terrorism prevention. It is said that it is an appropriate action to profile Muslims because as what have been recorded, Islamic jihadists have committed more than 5,000 terror attacks since the September 11, 2001 attack. The author asserts that governments must understand the importance of profiling, which had exposed the airplane hijacking plot in England, instead of focusing on anti-terror initiatives and foreign policies.
