Three ‘triggers’ for Islamic uprising under Trump presidency

Three ‘triggers’ for Islamic uprising under Trump presidency, by Leo Hohlmann.

A former Homeland Security officer who spent years screening Muslim immigrants points to three “triggers” of confrontation between the new administration of Donald Trump and the global Islamic movement. These three issues will spawn a violent backlash in response to Trump as he attempts to implement what many believe are long-overdue reforms.

  • Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem
  • Declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization
  • Restricting Islamic immigration into the U.S.

As Trump tries to rein in concessions given to the Muslim Brotherhood by the previous administrations of Clinton, Bush and Obama, he should expect the Brotherhood and its allies on the left to push back with hell’s fury, Haney said.

There will be lawsuits, ugly protests, and an all-out effort to create chaos in the streets of U.S. cities, he predicts.

The observant Muslim base has been building up in the US for decades:

This isn’t 1968 or even 1978, when Islam in America consisted primarily of a few thousand Nation of Islam and Black Panther activists.

Islam, particularly the Salafist brand of Sunni Islam promoted by the Muslim Brotherhood, whose stated goal is to spread Shariah throughout the world, has been allowed to establish a major foothold in America.

More than 300 U.S. cities and towns have been stacked with Sharia-compliant Muslims through refugee resettlement and myriad other visa programs that have been expanding for four decades.

Meanwhile, groups that agitate for Muslim “civil rights,” which tend to manifest as special privileges not afforded to Christians, have been empowered. Thanks to the expanded immigration, the U.S. Muslim population has exploded to 3.3 million, the number of mosques has grown exponentially and the Council on American Islamic Relations or CAIR is now a force to be reckoned with despite its ties to extremist organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, Haney said.

The left is eager to join in with the Muslim Brotherhood against Trump:

As seen at protests in major U.S. airports Sunday, the radical left is eager to take up the crusade of Muslim activism.  … Airport protests just the start of ‘chaos’ planned by Muslim Brotherhood …
This is just the beginning of what will be an ongoing battle of wills between Trump’s administration and the Shariah-supportive Muslim community that feels emboldened by its allies in the media and among what are mainly Marxist and left-leaning professors, lawyers and community organizers, Haney said.
