Earlier this week, in the wake of the most recent high-profile acts of believers of the Islamic faith obeying Allah, thus, obeying the command of the central figure of Islam, its alleged “prophet,” Donald Trump called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States."
He asserted, "Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension." He added, "Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life."
He stated, “What's happened is we're out of control. We have no idea who's coming into our country. We have no idea if they love us or if they hate us.”
He added to the above, speaking of “Muslims” he knows, “they know we have a problem. They know we have a real problem.” Trump thus asserted, “We can't put up with it, folks.”
Therefore, he calls for a “complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”
We must find out—and then deal honestly with that that we do discover, I add--Trump argued, “Where the hatred comes from and why … we're going to have to figure it out. We have to figure it out,” he presses.
He argues, “We can't live like this. It's going to get worse and worse. You're going to have more World Trade Centers. It's going to get worse and worse, folks.”
Small wonder thus, on the Left, on the Right, the “Lions” among them have risen.
Stirred they are, roused from their swooning and slumbering in the face of the source of the Islamic plot and threat against us; at the notion, at the gull, that anyone would dare table the idea, we seek, find and address the reason for the drive behind the jihadist that attack our nation, kill our loved ones, ravish our peace.
Damn the Soul! They cry. Damn the man, the notion, and all beings in support of him and it!
How dare anyone do such a despicable thing! How dare one!
And what makes it all the more “reprehensible” and “un-American” is, it is not just anyone who made the above suggestion, it is—all but beyond belief!—one, a Candidate for the office of the U.S. Presidency.
Therefore, not the least bit surprising, Senator Lindsey Graham insinuated, he was willing to do his level best to see to it, that, should Trump somehow become the Nominee on the Republican ticket, Hilary wins the national election.
Because, as Lindsey put it, it is one thing to lose an election but quite another to lose honor.
In speaking of the said lost honor, I’ve little, if any, doubt Graham speaks with the absence of first-hand experience of the bitter taste of lost honor suffered and, what we deduce from his statements, is and would be the sweetness of “Hillary.”
Therefore, given the uproar and the “Give us Hillary!” (“Give us Barabbas!) moment that the Right is now convulsing in; because I know, if the challenge Trump has tabled is allowed to come to fruition, it will take us directly to the so-called “sacred” Islamic text; I press we go there.
Because all—which are many—who have done so know the truth Congress--Left and Right--as well as the office of the US Presidency seek to obfuscate: the reason for the hatred is in the said texts.
They know, if the challenge Trump has tabled is allowed to come to fruition, it will take us directly into the pages of Qur’an, the pages of sira, the pages of regarded Islamic tafsir, and into the volumes, chapters, pages and lines of ahadith.
Our elected officials know, that written in the said text will stand, and on its own, testify to the reason for the hatred in heart, mind, and soul in the believer in the way of Muhammad. All who have made their journey into the so-called “sacred texts” of Islam, they know, that written there eradicates both question and puzzlement with respect to the message therein.
Yet our elected Representatives all but call for Trumps immediate binded-haul to the guillotine—because they believe we must respect Islam’s so-called “Holy Book,” thus, so too, its “Holy Prophet.”
But that is a “respect” we can ill-afford to render.
Moreover, I solemnly warn, should we continue rendering respect to the doctrine of Islam, and thus protecting that therein from being put, spotlighted, on center stage; that “respect” rendered will be the death of this nation—time to write “Ichabod” on District of Columbus signs. Hang the same in New York Harbor.
