There is a growing panic as President Donald Trump is moving too fast too soon on his election promises. He closed the doors on people from seven Muslim countries throwing the United States and the world into chaos never seen before; it’s the worst kind of racism the world has ever experienced. His executive order also includes extreme vetting of travellers from Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Fear is Trump’s ban on Muslims will bring back fascism into the so-called civilized age. Fact is Muslims have already suffered the most because of terrorism against them.
Hate mongers are encouraged to carry out terrorist-attacks on Muslims. Burning of a Mosque (Masjid) in Dallas shows how much hate has been generated against the US Muslims - God forbid!
The anticipated Registry of the Muslim population in the US is also a cause of big concern.
Initial public reaction: Signing of executive orders has received mixed signals from Americans and people from other countries.
The terrorist attack in Quebec: Canada has been considered a sanctuary for immigrants, but mosque massacre has sent a different alarming message to other immigrant communities. Unfortunately, an atmosphere of fear and animosity has taken over, the mainstream politicians and the mainstream media are not sure how to respond positively. . The Muslim worship houses are so vulnerable. Climate of Islamophobia was tactfully cultivated a few years ago, which is overwhelmingly on the rise now.
In order to get ahead economically, the countries strategically bypass the level playing field and get indulged in foul play instead. Dragging religion, arming the created rebels is part of the dirty game. Hence, things tend to get uglier and end up in a mess for all to suffer. Only big fish prevails. Sincerity remains missing, so do fairness and justice to common man. Greed is to blame for all ills. Islamophobia helps the dirty players. Seemingly, it’s a case of motivated scenario for turning the whole World against Islam and its worshipers. Extremely painful reality indeed! Six Muslim men in the mosque were killed and a few got critically wounded after a 27-year-old white male (university student) went on a shooting spree. The student, Alexandre Bissonnette, was known for liking Donald Trump and for putting forward anti-Muslim, racist and other highly bigoted views on his Face book page.
Thanks to Government of Canada and Quebec as immediate action was initiated; charges have already been laid.
Irony is Trump continues justifying his executive order by claiming that this would ban all ‘radical Islamic terrorists’ from entering the U.S.
Trump misunderstands Islam, thus fails to fully realize that there is no radical Islam; Islam teaches modesty and moderation stressing the application of love for the Humankind.
Those who cross the limits and ignore moderation are said to have committed a major sin for which they are fully accountable. No Muslim is allowed to hurt others on the basis of creed, culture or color.
A good leader believes in diversity: Refugees get welcome jackets from the Prime Minister Trudeau, but in Trump's America, they get handcuffs. Amazing!
In his twitter message: Justin Trudeau@JustinTrudeau: To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #Welcome to Canada
Highly commendable: Trudeau’s offer to accommodate, in his country, the affected refugees and expected to be affected in the future by the US travel ban has indeed come as a breath of fresh air. Whatever is happening in the US today is beyond one’s imagination. If this is how the beginning is, the end could be even worse.
NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair also delivered a direct message to “our Muslim brothers and sisters,” many of whom are in their place of worship.
“We mourn with you. We pray with you. And we promise we will stand united and fight against the forces of hatred, bigotry and Islamophobia,” Mulcair said. “And against those who peddle the politics of fear and division.”
“Today we are all Muslims,” May said. “We stand with you and we will never let there be daylight between a Christian, a Jew, a Sikh, an atheist and a Muslim in this country.
“We are Canadians and we stand together in love.”
Canada's criminal code outlaws hate propaganda, and Canada should ban Donald Trump from entering Canada and spreading his hate-mongering.
Mr. Trump’s ideas are not simply “outrageous,” “ridiculous,” or “unacceptable.” He is a purveyor of hate, racism, and deep prejudice. This goes beyond ignorance and pandering, and takes us to a different level – the ugliness to which Europe descended in the 1920s and 1930s, and which has unleashed genocidal attacks in our own time (www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/terror-trump-and-canadas-future/article27747138/)
Trump spent his campaign spitting all over Muslims.
Furthermore, amid anger over Trump’s immigration policy, hundreds of Britons are betting that the U.S. president will not last a year in office. British lawmakers will hold a debate on Feb. 20 on a petition signed by more than 1.6 million people calling for the state visit to be called off to avoid embarrassing Queen Elizabeth.
Look at the advantage of being unwelcome in the U.S.:
A travel ban might promote a desire for self reliance in the relevant field.
Also, it will help the affected countries acquire self-dependence in the fields of higher education and industrialization creating better opportunities. An uncontrolled brain drain would come to an end giving a boost to the local economy of the respective country.
Although President Donald Trump is an arrogant billionaire, he has to proceed with utmost caution. Soon his advisors with political wisdom are expected to advise him how to keep all nations on board for the World welfare without siding with anyone in particular.
Surely, his neutrality will help him maintain the First World Order. Harsh executive orders endanger the innocent peace loving people at home and abroad, of course. People may call him insane or stubborn, yet there is one commendable thing--- his gestures and body language is interesting. Beyond doubt, his actions reflect his thoughts almost with clarity.
Going after the terrorists is a fantastic job but punishing the victims is thought provoking.
Removal of double standards is absolutely necessary and so is defining terrorism. Crime and terrorism must be defined by the UNO.
