but i see a pattern of those who keep getting searched.. hijab and beard.. hmm i'm sure there are terrorists in every faith/culture/religion/country
and anyways as most people think that people in a hijab and have a beard are terrorists, i'm sure thats not the disguise the real terrorist will
they shouldnt be so ignorant to think that terrorists have some sort of dress code which is just like the muslim dress code
