Fake news infected the body politic this week as liberals lost their minds over President Trump’s falsely-labeled “Muslim ban,” which bars refugees from seven high-risk Muslim majority countries (previously identified by President Obama’s own Department of Homeland Security) for a period of 90 days. The so-called temporary “ban,” issued via presidential executive order, was designed to assess the national security treat posed by ISIS militants infiltrating refugee populations. To be clear, Trump’s executive order doesn’t even scratch the surface of banning all Muslims. That’s a fiction peddled by social justice warriors intent on exploiting the public’s fears about fascism to galvanize support for their pet causes and “non-profits.”
Eager to make strange bedfellows with naïve and uber-tolerant progressives, Muslim community leaders and Islamic “advocacy” organizations, including Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated CAIR, have all but turned victimhood into an art form.
But all the sorrowful sentries of identity politics fail to mention the fact that the Muslims actually dominate huge swaths of land across the globe. Far from being victims, Islamic states, still feeding off the spoils of colonial conquests during the golden age of the caliphate, are notoriously hostile to religious minorities, particularly Jews.
Persecuted, raped, and killed, Jews have been purged from Islamic lands for centuries, thanks to the imperial aspirations of imams, mullahs, warlords, and sultans.
To this day, Israeli Jews are forbidden from entering 16 Muslim countries. Six of the seven states on Trump’s “ban” currently bar Israeli Jews. We’re still waiting on protests condemning the institutionalized and permanent Jewish ban across the Islamic world.
Here a list of all the Muslim countries that ban Israeli Jews:
- Saudi Arabia
- United Arab Emirates
The hypocrisy of anti-Trump protesters was recently highlighted by Tory members of UK parliament who finally put the spotlight on the rampant anti-Semitism of the Muslim world.
“In the light of the fact that most of the countries covered by the Trump ban have a total exclusion on the admission of Israeli citizens, shouldn’t the protestors also be calling for that ban to be lifted?” asked former Northern Ireland Secretary Theresa Villier at a Q&A session with Prime Minister Theresa May Wednesday.
