You saw the protests in the airports that will really amounted to just an extra-long time for you to get through the crowd and get to your gate. It didn’t really accomplish anything else. And you heard the snowflakes on Capitol Hill screaming about how bad Donald Trump’s hold on refugee travel to the United States is. But in reality, what do the people that matter most think, even though a snowflake judge has put a halt to it temporarily? What do Muslims think about it?
My hunch is they SHOULD appreciate it. The one thing that has been missing in this entire war against terror is a staunch anti-terrorist stand from the Muslim community. Oh, there have been some that have spoken out against it, but not that many frankly. And as someone that lived near Dearborn, Michigan for most of my life…the most heavily concentrated Muslim population in the country, I would have thought these folks would have come out and said, “Enough violence”. But they have been relatively silent.
I would have thought the people that would have wanted to separate themselves from the “Muslim Extremist Terrorist” group…you know…the guys and gals that Bobo Obama never wanted to call by name? I would have thought the Muslims that weren’t in that category would want to differentiate themselves as peaceful, loving, and worshipful. That hasn’t appeared to be the case. Oh, there are some, but not many.
If Muslims in America really ARE part of a peaceful, loving religion, then why not come out in favor of such a move, especially to make sure you aren’t letting terrorists into the country? Why wouldn’t you want your sons and daughters to be safe, to be sheltered from what could very well take their very lives? Why wouldn’t you want to make sure as best you could that every single person that we let into this country as a refugee really IS a refugee and not part of ISIS or some other terrorist group? It seems to me that the people that should be most in favor of “extreme vetting” would be the people that have nothing to hide and actually are the innocent victims in all of this. At least that would be the case if you had nothing to hide, right?
Instead we hear precious little from Muslims. Oh, they protest, they show up at airports and around the world crying how the US is so bad for trying to protect its own borders. How they can say that with a straight face after watching the horrors that have unfolded in Europe after massive refugee migrations from the Middle East is beyond my comprehension. Germany, France, and Belgium have all tasted the sting of terrorism by letting their guards down in the name of humaneness. And it’s been a tragedy each time. Their leaders are to blame for allowing it to happen in the first place. Why is America so bad because we want to make sure the same thing doesn’t happen here? Why aren’t Muslims in this country standing up and asking that we make sure that their “peaceful, loving brethren from war-torn countries” be checked and double checked to make sure they aren’t harboring ill will toward America?
Those answers can’t come from me. They can only come from the Muslim community. I’m waiting and listening…I’m just not hearing anything!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
