Importance of Trump’s Executive Order might not be fully understood for generations, by Brian Thomas. The crucial paragraph of Trump’s Executive Order on immigration:
In order to protect Americans, the United States must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward it and its founding principles. The United States cannot, and should not, admit those who do not support the Constitution, or those who would place violent ideologies over American law. In addition, the United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred (including “honor” killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of those who practice religions different from their own) or those who would oppress Americans of any race, gender, or sexual orientation.
It indicates what this new administration is actually thinking.
They’re going to treat Islam as a hostile political ideology. That is what has been needed for decades. It is the reversal of the “Islam is a religion of peace” doctrine set in place by Bush on September 17, 2001.
[That paragraph] should, quite rightly, strike terror into the hearts of anyone looking to promote Islamic law above the United States’ existing constitution. …
This would apply to a communist overthrow of the United States (I guess), but the only real threat on the global stage today is the ideology of Islamic supremacy. …
If you read that paragraph and immediately think #MuslimBan, then you’re bringing your own impressions of Islam. The text doesn’t mention Islam, but we all know that the leading ideology that sanctions bigotry, hatred, violence against women, and oppression is not Buddhism.
This section, again without mentioning Islam or Muslims, arrives at the heart of the problem. Islamic values always lead to intolerance. Islam’s guiding texts are all fundamentally devoted to separating the world between believers and non-believers. All of our liberal freedoms and our equality stem from a Judeo-Christian belief that all men are created in the image of God and are equal before equitable laws. That is not at the heart of Islam.
The left is too greedy for Muslim votes, and fails to comprehend how different and supremacist Islam is:
That same Islamic ideology led 56 member states of the UN to ignore the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and replace it with the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam, which opens with:
“Reaffirming the civilizing and historical role of the Islamic Ummah which God made the best nation that has given mankind a universal and well-balanced civilization in which harmony is established between this life and the hereafter and knowledge is combined with faith; and the role that this Ummah should play to guide a humanity confused by competing trends and ideologies and to provide solutions to the chronic problems of this materialistic civilization.”
The idea that God made Islam the best nation is not a statement of equality. It is a supremacist statement. … That is what we are dealing with: 56 nation states and millions of indoctrinated followers who are religiously compelled (with a depth of fervour the godless left can no longer comprehend) bound to profess the supremacy of their civilisation.
