Hillary Criticizes Trump on Islam
by Bill Lockwood
After speaking for a few moments in New Hampshire Town Hall rally Donald Trump opened up the floor to questions. The first citizen to speak remarked, “We have a problem in this country, and it’s called Muslims. We know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American, birth certificate man!” Trump jokingly responded, “This is the first question?”
Then the questioner added, “But anyway, we have training camps growing where they want to kill us. That’s my question. When can we get rid of them?” At this, Trump answered, “We are going to be looking at a lot of different things. And, you know, people are saying that. And a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We are going to be looking at that and plenty of other things.”
Hillary Clinton weighed in on the discussion via Twitter on Friday. She noted that this exchange was “just plain wrong” while heavily criticizing Trump for not denouncing the man for such a question. To the liberal elite, such thoughts are completely out of bounds.
Perhaps Trump did not follow Hillary’s game-plan because, unlike the Democrat front-runner, he has actually read the Koran. If he has not, it is apparent that the New Hampshire citizen who asked the question is perfectly familiar with it enough to call Muslims a “problem.”
According to the late Ayatollah Khomeini, there are over one hundred verses in the Koran exhorting believers to wage jihad against unbelievers. Blood vengeance and war are central to Islam itself. Quran 9:73: “O Prophet! Strive hard against the unbelievers and hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell, an evil refuge indeed.” “Strive hard” is Arabic word “Jahidi,” a verbal form of “jihad.” Again: “When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield, strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly” (47:4).
Is this a tiny element of their religion? Absolutely not. It is central to it. Muhammed repeatedly insisted that there was nothing better than to engage in jihad. He even warned Muslims that if they did not engage in jihad, they would be punished. “Muhammad was firm about the necessity of jihad not only for himself personally, but for every Muslim. He warned believers that ‘he who does not join the warlike expedition (jihad), or equip, or looks well after a warriors’ family when he is away, will be smitten by Allah with a sudden calamity” (Abu-Dawud as Sijistani, translator Kitab Bhavan, 1990, book 14, no. 2497).
Perhaps Trump has seen the global war Islam wages and can draw simple deductions to which globe-trotting Clinton has willfully blinded her eyes. Men, women and children are right now being abducted, tortured, raped and forced to convert to Islam or be enslaved, just as Muhammad himself practiced.
In Egypt alone there have been over 500 cases documented within the past several years. Identical reports come out of Pakistan on a regular basis. Churches are routinely shut down or destroyed in Indonesia, India, Lebanon, Kenya, Kuwait, Turkey, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Syria, and other nations. Christian preachers are jailed as a matter of Islamic policy in these nations.
Perhaps Trump, unlike Clinton, is at least vaguely familiar with World History which demonstrates that the Islamic Empire practically conquered the world following the life of Muhammad by hacking their way across Europe with a sword. Perhaps Trump is interested in America and Americans’ concerns instead of bowing down to do obeisance before the idol of political correctness. No wonder Hillary is confused.
