The choice of the Muslim countries that Trump banned the entry to the United States to prevent terrorism is totally a shameless act of spreading Islamophobia. The countries who were banned are Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Sweden, Iran, and Libya. Let me take some examples where terrorists were from America. The San Bernardino shooting that killed 14 people was carried out by an American-born US citizen of Pakistani descent and a lawful permanent US resident of Pakistani descent. The Orlando nightclub shooter who murdered 49 people was an American-born US citizen of Afghan descent. The Boston marathon bombers, who identified as ethnic Chechen, came to the US from Kyrgyzstan and grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts, before carrying out attacks that left three dead. The militant who killed four Marines during a shooting spree in Tennessee was a Kuwaiti-born US citizen whose parents were Palestinian and Jordanian.
And the 9/11 attackers? – Were they from the above mentioned banned countries? Fifteen were from Saudi Arabia, two were from the United Arab Emirates, one was from Lebanon, and one was Egyptian. Osama bin Laden was a Saudi citizen, and his top deputies — including the current leader of al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, were Egyptian. None of the countries like Pakistan, Saudi Arabia is on the list.
The real threat to the United States is not terrorists but Trump and the people in the U.S. The FBI said that “As of September 2016, approximately 1,000 potential ‘home-grown violent extremists’ were under surveillance across all 50 states. Between 2001 and 2015, more Americans were killed by home-grown right-wing extremists than by Islamist terrorists.”
Ronald Reagan’s son said before election results that he will not vote for Trump as he is not qualified. “Mr. Trump if he is nominated, starting with the fact that he would be the most unqualified president in the American history. Every one of our 44 presidents has had either government or military experience before being sworn in. Mr. Trump, a real estate mogul, and former reality-television star haven’t served a day in the public office or the armed forces,” he added.
