I can’t believe I actually have to write this article. But I’ve been asked to by intelligent Jews who can’t seem to get through to their brain-washed brethren glued to the NY Slimes and CNN. So I’ll say it slowly. Our President’s temporary entry ban of all non-U.S. citizens from terror sponsoring and infected countries (countries chosen, by the way, by Barack Hussein Obama and contained in a law passed by Congress) is nothing like what happened to the Jews during the Holocaust.
First of all, do you know what the Holocaust was? I didn’t think so. Read a few books like The Destruction of European Jews, or The War Against the Jews. The Holocaust was the systematic rounding and annihilation of every Jew in Nazi occupied Europe. Where in the world is any government rounding up and annihilating Muslims? Syria? No, that’s a civil war, Muslims killing Muslims. Even in Iran, the world’s largest jihadi sponsor and a Nazi incarnate isn’t rounding up and systematically murdering anyone, even Christians and Jews (although Jews can’t walk out in the rain for fear of contaminating the water that flows into their rivers and water supply. At least, that was once the law.) Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan? Yemen? Nope, not there either.
So, before you degrade Jewish history by making an obscene comparison of these mostly economic migrants to our systematically hunted and murdered Jews, please ask yourself the following questions:
Are any of the people in these countries experiencing systematic extermination because of their Muslim religious beliefs or ethnicity?
Unlike the Jews of Europe, do they have many options of where to go, including wealthy Muslim countries who are their neighbors?
Are these people in any way comparable to the educated, cultured, innocent Jews hunted during the Holocaust, who proved to be a tremendous asset to any country willing to take them in? Or do they share a religion that includes a philosophy and laws which make them a danger to others who do not share their beliefs, which include killing those who don’t agree with their religious beliefs. Murdering women who they feel don’t follow their codes of “honor.” Killing gays. jihad, or holy war, against all those who aren’t in agreement with them?
Are there reasonable objections to allowing unvetted immigrants who may hold such beliefs – even those with previously granted visas and green cards – to cross borders of the U.S.?
Do you feel that present U.S. immigration vetting processes are adequate, and if so, how do you explain the San Bernardino killers; Somali immigrant Mustafa Mohamed, 30, who slashed and injured six people at a retirement home in Alexandria, Virginia; Muslim gunman Mujtaba Rabbani Jabbar, 24 who shot Jewish Paul Schrum in a hate crime; Muslim Pakistani Naveed Afzal Haq who shot six women, killing one, at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle building in Seattle, Washington; Muslim gunman Nidal Malik Hassan, an Army psychiatrist, who fatally shot 13 people and wounded 30 others at Fort Hood, Texas; the Boston bombing Tsarnaev brothers, who slit the throats of three Jews before going on a bombing rampage that killed and injured dozens; Jordanian Muslim Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, 57, who gunned down Iranian medical student, Gelareh Bagherzadeh, a friend of his daughter and a Christian convert who widely denounced Islam; Yusuf Ibrahim, 28, shot two Coptic Christians to death and beheaded them in Buena Vista, New Jersey; Kuwaiti- born Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, 24, who killed four U.S. Marines in Chattanooga, Tennessee; Omar Mateen, 29, of Fort Pierce, Florida, the son of Afghani immigrants, an ISIS sympathizer and foot soldier, who killed 49 people in a gay nightclub in Florida? Shall I go on?
Since 9/11 the U.S. has taken in 1.62 million Muslim immigrants – and this doesn’t include those entering on non-immigrant visas. At the current rate, this number will double again by 2030, and triple by 2050. A 2007 Pew survey found that 26% of young Muslims in America support suicide bombing in pursuit of jihad. Are you aware of the explosion of radical Islamic mosques that litter the U.S., funded by terror-linked organizations? Are you aware that radical Islam views Jews as less than “monkeys and pigs” and justifies the killing of Jewish people?
Yes, we are all sensitive to the plight of refugees fleeing war. But does that mean we can open America’s doors to everyone claiming to be a Syrian refugee when that country is flooded by ISIS and Al Qaida operatives who would like nothing better than to relocate and carry on in the U.S. now that they are finished destroying that country? What is wrong with the idea of better vetting to make sure the real refugees are let in, including the Christians who are truly the only ones comparable to Holocaust victims because of the systematic ethnic cleansing taking place throughout the Middle East? Our President specifically said he would favor such people and that his ban does not include them.
All those throwing around their emotional Holocaust comparisons please think about my questions. And while you are in the thinking mood, tell me this: Do you also advocate opening the borders of the Jewish State to unvetted hordes from Syria who before they were victims, were advocating wholesale “death to the Jews?” Do you think that’s a good idea too? And if not, why is it a good idea for America?
President Trump is doing exactly what needs to be done. Please think before you mouth CNN soundbites. If you are American Jews who participate in a synagogue, send your children to Jewish schools or community centers, shop in Jewish stores and eat in Jewish restaurants, he is making you and your families safer, unless you have a death wish.
Take it from me, an Israeli who was sitting in the Park Hotel during Passover and almost got blown up by an Oslo Accord jihadi who our government let in because it wanted to paint doves and feel good, and get good publicity among people who hate us. If you are an American Jew, please don’t jump on the CNN bandwagon. These people our Leftists liberals want so much to let in, they are coming for you.
