It’s Not a Muslim Ban

President Trump’s Executive Order banning travel from foreign nationals from 7 of the world’s largest hotbed of terrorists is not a ban on Muslims or an attack on Islam. Despite the cry’s of the Liberals here and abroad.

The 7 nations impacted by the travel ban or Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, and Libya. All of them have very high numbers of terrorists acting freely within their borders and abroad.

If this was a ban on Muslims then the following countries would also be banned: Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Turkey, Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, Uzbekistan, Ethiopia, China, Niger, Tanzania, Malaysia, Mali, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Tunisia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Chad, Tajikistan, Jordan, Palestinian Territories, and Israel.

All of the nations listed above are NOT banned, but all have equally high or higher Muslim populations than the 7 countries that are banned and/or are located in the Middle East where Islam originated.

So how is this a Muslim ban again? Seriously I want a dialog here from someone to explain how implementing a travel ban from 7 countries is a ban against all Muslims.

Mathematically it also shows that this is not a ban on Muslims. In the 7 banned nations there are 205,428,950 Muslims. While within the remaining unbanned nations that I listed there are 1,326,550,062 Muslims. For those that are mathematically challenged that’s about 640% more Muslims of the world that are not travel banned which covers the majority of the Muslim population of 1,703,146,000 world wide.

Now I will state that the ban was a bit too restrictive as it did unfortunately catch some legitimate travellers in its broad net. And that can be fixed without going crazy with false accusations and stupidity by the Left who are still upset that they lost the election.

The War on Terror

We are fighting the war on terror in the wrong way. Ever since we started the war after the events of 9/11, we have been engaged in nation building and spreading democracy.

In Iraq, we toppled Saddam Hussein, and now Iraq is in a bitter civil war were the Islamic State Caliphate is gaining ground. In Egypt, we toppled Mubarak, during the so-called Arab Spring. Only to have him replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood, a known terrorist organization. Fortunately the Egyptian military removed the Brotherhood from power, but the area is far from stable. In Libya, we saw to the removal of Colonel Qaddafi. Only to have him replaced by Islamic terrorist hardliners that lead to the death of 4 Americans at the US Embassy.

Now we have Syria. Bashar al-Assad, like the other leaders of Islamic terrorist nations is a bad person. His civil rights record is abysmal and he certainly is not a friend. But we should support his government in the civil war that rages in Syria at this time.

Why? Because he is fighting against the Islamic State Caliphate and other hardline Islamic terrorist groups. And without Bashar, the power vacuum will be filled by an unknown person or group. Bashar is just the lesser of evils and he is the devil we known. Keeping him in power will help to stabilize Syria and the rest of the Middle East.

We must engage the most dangerous enemy and threat to our national security and the security of the entire world instead of going about the nation building business. And that enemy is the Islamic State (ISIS) Caliphate.

We need a ground, air, and sea plan of assault. The Caliphate must be deprived of it’s land first and foremost. This gives the Caliphate legitimacy in the eyes of Muslims. Additionally we must stop the flow of money, goods, man power, and their ability to use the internet.

I am not a tactician. I can not say HOW this all should be done. But it does need to be done or the Islamic State will continue to gain ground, funds, recruits, and power. And then it will be even harder to stop if not impossible to stop. Better learn Arabic if that happens.
