"Are you talking about the profiling system?"

"First of all, there's no proof that this method prevents attacks. Second, what kind of message is the state sending to its Jewish citizens? The state is saying that the Arabs are dangerous and I have to check them more carefully, so the message that all Arabs are dangerous begins at the airport and spills over into other places, and is reflected in a hostile attitude and racist beliefs.
And there's a short distance between the airport and the declaration that renting homes to Arabs is forbidden. We should recall and remind everyone that it was Jews who were involved in the most significant and serious security incident in Israel - the assassination of a prime minister for whose security the Shin Bet security service is responsible. The murderer was a Jew. Would it be acceptable for all the Jews to be labeled as dangerous?"
