Well he went and did it. Donald Trump began to seal the American borders from possible terrorist infiltration, by signing an executive order. Good move.
With the stroke of his pen, people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen – all states with high incidents of warfare and terror, or terror supporting – are banned from entering the US, effective for an initial and extendable period of 90 days. Every country has a right to secure borders and a sane immigration policy. Do you think a sign at the airport reading “No Terrorists Allowed’’ is enough?
The ACLU, and various refugee rights groups ran to file lawsuits against the order. Calls of “racism” could be heard throughout the left in America.
It’s not about racism.
It’s about security, stupid!
French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault and German Minister for Foreign Affairs Sigmar Gabriel quickly expressed their concerns about the closure, at a joint press conference in Paris. The Turkish prime minister and Iranian president also joined in the criticism.
I can understand the Iranian frustration. They’re the world’s largest supporter of state-sponsored terrorism. And the prospect of making it more difficult to carry out their agenda, must be disheartening.
But who can understand the French, a country that’s suffered so much Islamic terror in the last few years. All I can say is, well, they’re the French. Maybe that’s why anti-immigrant – or should I re-brand her – pro-security Marine Le Pen of the National Front is leading in the presidential polls, with elections coming in April.
After the Brexit vote in Britain, and Trump’s victory, pro-security parties throughout Europe are on the ascent. In the Netherlands, Geert Wilders’ Freedom Party; In Italy the Northern League and Five Star Movements; in Germany, where many feel Angela Merkel’s refugee policy has been a disaster, the Alternative for Germany, has gained ground.
All these ‘’far-right populist’’ or better, pro-security parties, seem to be against Arab or Muslim immigrants, why? Is it racism? Ask yourself this politically incorrect question, why is it that almost all the terrorism in the world today, originates with Arabs or Muslims?
Does Islam encourage violence?
Now for my politically incorrect answer. Maybe Islam encourages violence. Maybe Islam is at war with the Judeo-Christian west. Islamic terrorism – asymmetrical warfare – against Israel and Europe is the form that it takes. Israel is under siege from Hamas and other Palestinian groups, Europe is under siege from ISIS.
Donald Trump wants to prevent that from happening to America. What’s wrong with that? A political leaders’ responsibility, is first to his or her own people, doubly so, in times of war.
America First! Israel First! Europe First!
Islam started the fight, they fired the first shots, whether you date it from ISIS in 1999, Al-Qaeda in 1988, the Iranian revolution in 1979, or the formation of the Muslim Brotherhood in 1928. The Islamic revival, the global jihad, or whatever you call it, their fight against the west, is in full swing, and it’s about time the west wakes up, before it burkas for you. Or, before your head, ends up mounted on someone’s wall like a trophy.
It’s not about racism, it’s about security stupid!
