Much ballyhoo has been made maligning Donald Trump. Admittedly, Trump evokes boisterous tendencies, but despite the rhetoric to defame him, he’s not unhinged in his call for a moratorium on Muslim immigration. His guilt lies in prioritizing the security of American citizens by simply implementing common sense. Every president is the custodian of a nation and its future. During the Islamic Revolution’s Iranian hostage crisis, President Carter virtually banned all Iranian visas into the U.S. The threat of Islamic terrorism was the reason. ISIS openly declares its intention to infiltrate refugee populations to terrorize Western cultures. The San Bernardino and Paris attacks were in sympathy with this mandate. In the Qur’an, Sura 8:74 decrees, “And those who believed and emigrated and performed jihad for the sake of Allah ... those are the true believers.”
Multiculturalism, political correctness, and misguided notions of tolerance have created an atmosphere of confusion concerning the threat confronting this nation. One must stand up to ridicule and ostracism from liberal elites who have made careers peddling fiction. America’s current conflict with Islamic terrorism stems from an unholy alliance between Islam and the political left. Under this administration’s deceitful policies, an increased presence of ISIS sympathizers has catalyzed a rise in jihadi attacks.
Trump’s call is denounced as insulting to Muslims. The root of this issue isn’t about individual Muslims, but rather ideological Islam which embraces jihad, the religious duty to gain power over other nations. Islamic scholar Abul A’la Maududi posited, “Islam is a revolutionary ideology ... to alter the social order of the whole world, and rebuild it in conformity with its own tenets....” In 2004 an FBI raid in Annandale, Va., produced Muslim Brotherhood documents strategizing a multi-phased “cultural invasion” of the West ranging from immigration to terrorism. This “stealth jihad” has already penetrated the highest levels of government and national security.
The Qur’an’s commentary of Sura 9:24 also explains, “Al-Jihad [Islamic Holy war] in Allah’s Cause [With full force of number and weaponry] is given the utmost importance in Islam, and it is one of its pillars. By Jihad, Islam is established, Allah’s Word is made superior, and His Religion [Islam] is propagated. Jihad is an obligatory duty on every Muslim....” Omar Ahmed, co-founder of CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) pronounced, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur’an should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth,” (1998). In 1991 Muslim Brotherhood head in America Mohamed Akram stated, “Our work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house....” Informed discernment is neither unwarranted nor phobic toward this kind of Trojan horse.
The compelling truth is that under the banner of humanitarian compassion, there are those immigrating into Western nations whose goal is the extermination of Western mores. That’s the elephant in the room. This elephant has no place lurking in America’s shadows.
