On December 7th, 2015, — Donald J. Trump issued a press release ‘for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.’
According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. Most recently, a poll from the Center For Security Policy released data showing “25% of those polled agreed that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global jihad” and 51% of those polled, “agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah.” Shariah authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won’t convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to Americans, especially women.
Mr. Trump stated, “Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again.” – Donald J. Trump
The US Chronical reports Donald Trump has taken a firm stance on what it would mean for the thousands of Syrian refugees that Barack Obama has planned to bring into America, despite the the president’s own administration admitting that they cannot screen the refugees for terrorist ties.
The billionaire tycoon took to social media and Tweeted an altered political cartoon whose original version is attributed to Carlos Latuff:
Trump has been critical of the Middle East’s, specifically Saudi Arabia’s, hypocritical stance on the Syrian refugee crisis since last year when it was first learned that the oil rich nation had not accepted any of the immigrants fleeing the region, and has instead been relying on Western countries to accept the full burden.
Time Magazine,Fox News, CNN, and The Daily Caller are just some of the publications that have reported, as of last September, that Saudi Arabia has refused to accept any Syrian refugees into their borders, and to provide a safe haven for what Obama has described as widows and 3-year-olds. The publications cite Saudi Arabia’s fears of importing terrorists as the motive for refusing refugees. Coincidentally, the motive is identical to Trump’s concerns.
Several Islamic extremist attacks from immigrants who have already gone through the refugee vetting process of the United States shows that Obama is not capable of preventing ISIS from entering the country, and it is not really Obama’s fault.
FBI Director James Comey has stated that the intelligence community has no way of vetting Syrian refugees due to there being no database to ping in the war-torn country.
What is Obama’s fault, is that he knows there is a national security risk, and he has decided to go ahead with his plan to bring in the refugees anyway. This inability to back down, his administration calling his political enemies cowards and un-American, and refusal to accept that he could be wrong is evidence that the president just might be a narcissist.
Since Trump’s announcement that, as president, he would put a hold on Islamic immigrants and refugees, Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal has taken to Twitter to demand that Trump remove himself from the United States presidential race.
What do you think? Should Saudi Arabia be shouldering some of the burden and allowing the opportunity for ISIS to slip into their country through the refugee programs?
