Revelations and Perspectives on the "Outrage" of the Trump Executive Order on Temporary ME-Nation Visa Entry to U.S.
"Early this morning an Arabic radio station in the Middle East called asking my opinion about President Trump's ban on refugees and citizens of seven Muslim nations. The radio host, who sounded angry over the ban, was a Christian Arab. She was surprised to hear that I supported the ban and think that it should have taken place the day after 9/11."
"She then asked me if I knew any Arab American activist who was against the ban because she wanted to interview someone against the ban. She seemed shocked to hear that I do not have any Arab or Muslim friends who are protesting the ban, and that many immigrants of Islamic and Middle East origin support the ban and are fed up and embarrassed by what jihadists are doing."
"Muslims need to know that the world does indeed have a justifiable and legitimate concern about Islam and actions done in the name of Islam by Muslims. Muslims need to look at themselves in the mirror and see the world from the point of view of their victims. Instead, the West is sacrificing its culture, values, laws, pride and even self-respect. Muslim culture needs a wake-up call telling them that, sooner or later, non-Muslim nations will close their doors to any kind of Muslim immigration if the jihad culture continues. That will also be a strong message to Muslims already in the West who still believe in jihad."

"The United States is and has always been a generous nation when it comes to welcoming those who seek refuge and want to contribute. I expect that these executive orders are in fact temporary and that after the Administration strengthens the vetting process, we can continue our tradition of welcoming those who are persecuted in an orderly manner and without any kind of religious test."
U.S. (Republican) Representative Carlos Curbelo, Florida
"I support the temporary entry restriction from certain nations until the administration, Congress and the American people know with confidence that any individual being granted admission does not pose a threat to our security . . . . With all that being said, I will be closely monitoring the execution of this EO to make sure that any misapplication is corrected immediately."
U.S. (Republican) Representative Lee Zeldin, New York
"With the stroke of a pen, he is doing more to shut down terrorist pathways into this country than the last Administration did in eight years."
U.S. House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Representative Michael McCaul, Texas (Republican)
"I've been a journalist for 30 years and I'm really disappointed that the media has unfortunately gone along with this meme #MuslimBan. It's a propaganda campaign. In communications there is a term called agitprop, it means agitation propaganda. What we see right now is agitation propaganda from a very partisan political movement that lost the election. What I am really disturbed by is when I did a search last night of how many outlets have #MuslimBan in their headlines, they go everywhere from the New York Times to Slate magazine. It's a disturbing tend where we are inciting fear and doing it very irresponsibly . . ."
"We know very clearly that there is an extremism problem that has been exported to the world that reaches the far corners of our societies . . ."

It seems obvious there are two Muslim-American protagonist groups with stark divisions between them. One, which appears to have infiltrated the Obama administration and which has become quite an establishment darling of the Liberal-left, extolling the virtues of Sharia in a surreptitious manner, defending Islam as a misunderstood religion, and charging that criticism of this world-leading religion second in global numbers only to Christianity, is clear Islamophobia, which should be legally outlawed. Among them are loyalists who support terrorism.
The other, representing much smaller numbers involved in decrying the militarization of their religion and how it has inveigled its way into non-Muslim societies so they now host large numbers of Muslims hostile to the societies that have absorbed them, and posing a clear threat, both violently expressed in viciously deadly attacks, and more subtly by agitating for Sharia to be recognized as a liberal gesture of goodwill in recognition of the stunningly large numbers of Muslims who have emigrated from their home countries, along with refugees flooding out of Muslim nations embroiled in ethnic, tribal and sectarian violence.
The latter is experiencing great difficulties in persuading the bulk of Western societies that it is not in either of their best interests to succumb to the guile of the fundamentalist Islamists who have their ear, while the former continue to enjoy great popularity in academia, among unions, and civil liberty organizations and church groups taking up their 'cause' as a misunderstood religion intending harm to none, victimized by virulent Islamophobia.
Protest marches have had among their organizers, figures of Islamist celebrity whose backgrounds are surfeit with links to terrorist groups. The marches succeed in influencing huge groups of people of non-Muslim background to come out to shout their defiance of the new American administration whose head is not an urbane moderate, but a distasteful mountebank representing the choice of the majority of American voters who wanted a gruff, no-nonsense, non-politician whose rhetoric reflects their inner-core thoughts to represent their interests.
Invariably, because it is the Liberal-left that has twinned itself with the Muslim-majority groups who claim to represent the best interests both of American Muslims and the greater American population, the demonstrations are rife with more than a whiff of anti-Semitism, burnished by a Muslim culture of traditional hostility to Jews, bolstered anew by their adversity to the State of Israel, with the pretext of supporting Palestinian rights against the Israeli 'occupier', leading to the presence of placards held aloft slandering Israel and Jews.

"Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers behind Saturday’s Women’s March, being held in Washington, D.C., was recently spotted at a large Muslim convention in Chicago posing for pictures with an accused financier for Hamas, the terrorist group."
"Sarsour, the head of the Arab American Association of New York and an Obama White House “\'Champion of Change', was speaking at last month’s 15th annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America."
"While there, she posed for a picture with Salah Sarsour, a member of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee and former Hamas operative who was jailed in Israel in the 1990s because of his alleged work for the terrorist group." The Daily Caller
