Has TRUMP overstepped the mark? Will the Muslim world protest?
According to media sources this afternoon, Islamic passengers have been barred from flights into the USA and visa holders refused entry after Donald Trump imposed strict new controls on travellers from seven Muslim-majority nations.
The US President who had promised the measures – called “extreme vetting” – during last year’s election campaign, said he was making America safe from “radical Islamic terrorists” as he signed the executive order on Friday. The decree… means no visas will be issued for 90 days to migrants or visitors from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
HOWEVER… Iran, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Sudan and 11 more Muslim countries banned Jews – Israelis – long ago from ever entering their countries. Saudi Arabia also banned all Jews a long time ago. In fact, you are not even allowed to enter with any clothing made by a Jewish firm.
Has anyone asked the question why? There never was, and never will be, any threat of terrorism (perceived or otherwise) coming from Israelis or Jewish people.
On top of this, there is the hideous boycott, divest and sanctions (BDS) movement which seeks to ban Israeli products and people from institutions in the West. No doubt the Muslim world and the liberal western world will protest against Trump, but hang on… who has ever protested regarding all these Islamic countries for banning Jewish people into their countries?
Do you feel it’s right that people protest against Trump stopping Islamists entering America? Well if you do, then you should protest… However, be consistent. There is no room for double-standards when it comes to Israel. After all, just look what Abbas promises!
