GOP frontrunner Donald Trump recently stated that he’d like for there to be a moratorium on any and all Muslims entering America until the country can figure things out.
Many people believe Trump’s take is un-American, but don’t include Imam Nidal Alsayyed of Texas.
In fact, Alsayyed believes that Trump didn’t go far enough, and would like to see all Syrian refugees of any religion kept out.
This will displease the left to no end…
“I certainly see it to be wise (to) stop temporarily accepting any new Muslim immigrants (refugees and non-refugees) into the United States,” [Alsayyed] said.
This “is based on the fact that we can hardly distinguish who is Muslim and who is not. Islam is not about an ID card or last name or shouting ‘Allahu Akbar,’” he added.
“It does not matter whether Trump said it or anyone else … American Muslims need to say we are with this country,” he said.
“We American Muslims need to be sincere in our religion and to the country we are living in. Peace comes before religion.” Not long ago there was a bunch of American Muslims who publicly came out and called for an end to radical Islam.
Unfortunately, we’re not seeing that enough.
I’m glad Alsayyed was of many who wasn’t offended after Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ statement, but more Islamic people need to stand up and condemn terrorism. As far as easing tensions go, that would be a huge plus.
