It’s pretty obvious how the Left in the U.S. feels about the temporary pause on immigration as outlined in President Trump’s executive order. They continually beat the “Muslim ban” drum even though it is anything but a Muslim ban. (Never let the truth get in the way of a good anti-conservative slam, right?) But what do Muslim government leaders think about the ban? They should be the ones screaming in defiance of the Trump ban if anyone did. It has been pretty quiet on that issue so far. But now two officials from the United Arab Emirates have come out and have voiced their opinions.
“The United States has taken a decision that is within the American sovereign decision,” UAE foreign minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan said Wednesday in a press conference. “There are attempts to give the impression that this decision is directed against a particular religion, but what proves this talk to be incorrect first is what the U.S. administration itself says … that this decision is not directed at a certain religion.” So as to apparently make certain his remarks were not misunderstood, the foreign minister clarified his position by saying: “This is a temporary ban and it will revised in three months, so it is important that we put into consideration this point,” he added. “Some of these countries that were on this list are countries that face structural problems. These countries should try to solve these issues … and these circumstances before trying to solve this issue with the United States.”
His comments fly in the face of the American liberal Left who immediately titled President Trump’s executive order as a “Muslim ban” rather than a temporary ban on ALL immigration from seven countries designated previously by the Obama Administration as potential terrorist states. And he was not the first in the UAE to speak of support of the ban. Sunday Dubai’s head of general security Dhahi Khalfan spoke in support of the President’s executive order stating the U.S. President has the right and obligation to protect the U.S. “We completely support Trump in his ban on entry to those who may cause a breach in America’s security,” he wrote in a series of Tweets. “Every country has the right to protect its security from anyone who could be dangerous for the safety of its people. Previous US administrations have embraced all the wanted men of the Arab world and those classified as terrorists … Trump what you’re doing is right.”
Isn’t it amazing that there are Muslim nation leaders who understand and support a non-Muslim country leader — President Trump — taking such actions to protect his constituents while in the United States the national media and liberal politicians consistently cry out about the temporary immigration ban falsely branding it a religious ban, specifically against Muslims?
