Political Class: deny, ignore, distract

President Trump’s temporary travel ban affecting Iran, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen is correct because these countries are hotbeds of Islamic terrorism and exporters of Islamic terrorism.

Cases in point:

1) Orlando, FA:  Omar Mateen who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State opened fire inside a crowded gay bar and dance club June 12, 2016, leaving 49 people dead and 53 injured in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

(Hmm, we don’t recall widespread public gatherings at nightclubs to mourn the loss of these innocent lives.)

2) San Bernardino, CA:  Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, a married couple, opened fire at a holiday party at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino on Dec. 2, 2016.  The FBI’s investigation uncovered they were inspired by foreign terrorist groups.

(Hmm, we don’t recall widespread public gatherings at centres for disabled people to mourn the loss of these innocent lives.)

3) Unreported acts of Isalmic Terrorism.

4) Unreported thwarted acts of Isalmic Terrorism.

Another casualty here is the religion of Islam.  It has been co-opted in a crude attempt to legitimize horrific acts.  That is a fact.  A clear thinking person will know that this travel ban is not an affront to law abiding Muslim people who practice the faith of Islam.  And, who respect the nationhood of their adopted homeland.

At a prayer service at a Brantford, Ontario mosque in the wake of the Quebec City mosque shooting,  the Brantford Expositor reported that Imam Abu Noman Tarek noted:  “that since the 9-11 terrorist attacks in the US Muslims get blamed for acts perpetrated by extremists who do not represent Islam.”

To teach the public about how Islam has been distorted, more Imams need to say these words in public.

Unfortunately, the political class and its enabling media use the Quebec City mosque shooting as a shameful attempt to malign the new US administration.  They wish to deny or ignore the fact that Islamic terrorism has been exported to North America and that the US, which values its nationhood, has the right to take precautions.  It appears the political class wish to cast themselves as heroes by denouncing this tragedy, and then either directly or indirectly decrying the travel ban.

Has this heroism taken your mind off of outrageous electricity costs, an unnecessary and flawed cap-and-trade scheme, and poorly managed disabled and elder care systems?

Mission accomplished.
