Did you ever notice that when you talk about the violence that is inherent in Islam, when you see the killings of innocents at the hands of violent Muslim extremists, when you see the reports of unspeakable horrors committed by ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hamas, etc., the Muslim community, politically correct politicians, and the left in general begin screaming “That's not Islam. Those people committing those acts, even if they do quote the Quran and scream “Alahu Ackbar”, they're not Islamic. Islam is a religion of peace. Don't lump all of Islam into the same category with these groups.”
And yet, when the President of the United States issues a travel ban from six countries known worldwide to harbor and promote Islamic terrorism; a means of preventing at least some members of these violent groups from entering the United States without an extreme vetting process in place to protect American citizens from the dangers that terrorists will bring into the country, suddenly all of those same people stand in solidarity and say “You are trying to ban all Muslims from entering the country!”
According to what I've read, there are about 100 Muslim majority countries in the world today. (In 2010 there were only 62.) That leaves 94 Muslim countries from which travel to the United States will still be allowed. So for my left-leaning friends who call it a Muslim ban, could you try to explain how 6% actually equals 100%? Perhaps it's Common Core math but I'd really like to understand.
Wednesday was the one year anniversary of the Pulse Night Club shooting in Orlando, Florida, by an apparently radicalized Muslim named Omar Mateen. There is no mention in any of the news articles I've read about the incident, not even Fox, that says anything about Mateen other than he was the shooter. It's as if his statements, his ties to Islam, his visits to radical Muslim web pages on the internet, no longer exist. Today he is but “the gunman.”
Political correctness under the Obama administration has caused many Americans to simply overlook the Muslim connection when it comes to terrorism. Whether or not Obama believes radical Islam to be Islamic, the terrorists believe it. And they use it to justify the senseless and brutal murders of tens of thousands of innocent people a year. (The growth of ISIS has greatly raised that number.)
We have Muslim clerics going on international television calling for the overthrow of the Western world. There are places in Europe that have become “No Go” areas – places within cities that police do not enter because of Islam and Sharia control of the areas. And Dearborn, Michigan, is close to having one of those.
Thank God we finally have a President who refuses to coddle Islam, refuses to bow to political correctness, and refuses to bow to the will of the left - who calls Muslim terrorism what it is.
There is a story in the “Clarion Project” that says one of the perpetrators of the recent bridge attack in London was radicalized by listening to the hate filled, radical rants of Ahmad Musa Jibril, a Muslim cleric right here in the good ol' USA. Jibril lives and preaches in Michigan but puts his radical ideas online. Radicalized mosques in the United States, once identified, should be closed.
Political correctness will be the death of the United States of America. If one takes a good, hard look at Europe with open eyes they will see what will one day happen here if we continue to coddle Islam in the name of political correctness.
