WORLD FUTURE FUND
TRUMP'S MUSLIM BAN
SHOULD BE ABOLISHED.
IT IS A DIRECT THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY.
There are 1.6 billion Muslims on our planet, and Islam is the world's fastest growing religion. There is also a major Islamic nuclear weapons program in Pakistan. Indeed, Pakistan has over 200 nuclear weapons and has the fastest growing nuclear weapons program in the world. Thus, it makes no sense whatsoever to antagonize such a large number of religious people.
Unfortunately, certain elements of American politics and religion are spewing the most vile and dangerous forms of religious hate against Muslims. At the Trump inauguration one the most vile hate mongers, Reverend Franklin Graham, was a keynote speaker. This same person is also a hate monger against gay people.
During his campaign Donald Trump openly talked about banning all Muslims from US. On January 28, 2017 he banned Muslims from the countries below from entering the US.
Not one serious act of terrorism on US soil has been committed by any of the citizens from the countries being banned.
By contrast millions and millions of Muslims have been slaughtered by western invasions of their lands from the time of the Crusades to Bush's invasion of Iraq to Obama's attacks on Libya and Syria.
We want to make clear that we favor better security. We favor stronger controls over illegal immigration. A corner stone for these reforms is a biometric national ID card for all US citizens and all people entering the US.
Trump's policies will worsen our security by stirring up even more hate against America.
This is one reason why the official parliament of Iraq voted to condemn Trump's Muslim ban. Since our troops are now in Iraq fighting ISIS, Trump's action is a direct threat to the safety of our soldiers and civilians in Iraq.
We totally condemn acts of terrorism like the attacks on America in 2001. However, it is important to note that the 3,000 victims of this criminal act are a minuscule fraction of the over one million people killed in Bush's invasion of Iraq in 2003.
We can be more secure. We should be more secure. This will require a greater level of humility in foreign affairs. It will require a reorganization of our system of immigration law enforcement. It will require a respectful relationship with Mexico... not public ultimatums to Mexico about paying for a wall.
Blanket bans on Muslim nations are not a solution. Enraging and insulting 1.6 billion people who are in control of over 200 nuclear weapons is an idiotic idea that should not be government policy.
We understand that many people are rightly concerned about the dangers of terrorists entering America. Let's work together for practical plans to deal with this threat.
PAKISTAN'S NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM IS THE FASTEST GROWING IN THE WORLD.
DO WE REALLY WANT TO DESTABILIZE PAKISTAN
BY INSULTING ALL THE WORLD'S MUSLIMS?
