SHUT MUSLIMS OUT FROM UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - DONALD TRUMP.
Icheoku says Republican Presidential candidate contender numero uno, the fire-eating Donald J. Trump has done it again. When Americans and the tuned-in world thought he has said it all, here comes the mother of all his bombs. The Donald wants all Muslims banned from entering the United States of America until things cool off. In his words, the maverick politician and presidential candidate wanna be said, "I Donald J. Trump, is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our nations leaders can figure out what the hell is going on. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life."
Icheoku says give it up to the Donald, the man who has mastered the art of drawing attention to himself and being the pace-setter and decider of the agenda in the ongoing Republican Party primaries campaign. Icheoku agrees that the Donald is frustrated just like every other Joe and Jane of America who is tired of all these fanatical Muslims terrorizing the world and desires a fix to the problem. However outright blanket ban of all Muslims is not the answer as among the billions of practicing Muslims, are several hundreds of millions of very good Muslims who do not subscribe nor take delight in the shedding of human blood by these mad Muslims. A case of one bad apple spoiling the basket for everyone is not good and should not be tolerated.
Icheoku tunes in and is gravitating to the Donald for being bold and brash enough to tackle some politically incorrect issues. But on this one, Icheoku says lets not use a sledge hammer where a little mallet would suffice. The effort should be concentrated at intensifying intelligence gathering on these lunatics and maintaining eternal vigilance. Icheoku is emphatic that Donald spoke out of frustration but regardless, using a machete where a scalpel will be adequate is out of the question. Further comparing the Jewish holocaust with his call is apple and oranges as Jews never terrorized the Germans before Hitler went on overdrive; unlike these lunatics who kill everyone simply for their warped understanding or rather interpretation of what their Mohammed ordered.
But acting as a devil's advocate, what if Muslims are banned from entering the United States and Saudi Arabia angrily reacts, can America withstand the shock to its economy a massive Saudi Arabia pullout from America's financial industry will throw up? A country that practically owns Wall Street, so many other banks, one of the biggest customer of America defense industry as well as many juicy real estate holdings in America, if incensed, could do a great havoc to our country's economy. Needless to add the other one billion Muslims throughout the world who might decide to boycott America, withdrawing their assets as well as hundreds of thousands of their wards who are international students in American universities and colleges.
Icheoku admonishes that such a provocation of a very large group of people is not in our country's national interest and should be frowned at by every man and woman of good spirit in America. Be that as it may, Icheoku says if such a rhetoric would provoke some response in Muslim worlds to start seeing these Islamic terrorists as both their problem and export to the world, which they should seriously tackle, then it is a welcome wake up call. These people come from somewhere and were groomed by fiery clerics who preached and imbibed this hatred in them; including the ever 'Death to America' chanting mobs of Iran. But the San Bernardino husband terrorist is an American born Pakistani; so how does Donald plan to keep out such American from entering his country when he was already here as bona fide citizen?
Icheoku says peoples movement around and across the world is a good thing that should be encouraged rather than discouraged. Without Obama senior, a Muslim, entering the United States, the country would not have a president named Barack Obama; a product of a black Muslim Kenyan father and a white Christian American mother. There are also other stories of Muslims who have accomplished and contributed immensely to America and so, one or two Muslim lunatic fringes should not be used as a benchmark or measure to judge and/or punish every other Muslim in a collective responsibility fashion. Otherwise where would Donald Trump suggest America put all those white extremists Christian terrorists who have carried out acts of terror on the homeland. The Timothy McVeigh, Eric Ruddolf, Jeffrey Dhumer, Ted Kazeski, Adam Lanza, Chris Harper-Mercer, etc were all Christian terrorists and how do we guard against such Americans or should we have shipped them out to Saudi Arabia to have their heads publicly chopped off with a machete or sword in a macabre bloody show?
A holistic approach is preferred where every America, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Gentiles, Pagans, Atheists etc would join forces as Americans to collectively wage the war against Islamic terror. If anyone sees something, they should say something; and mosques should be discouraged from preaching sermons that incite this madness. Finally the days of Japanese internment is long over; the Chinese concentration camps are long gone; Slave plantations are equally a distant history; so also is the most recent near attempt to quarantine Africans and other African emanating visitors coming back to the United States because of the Ebola scare. But hey, Donald Trump is possibly acting out a script which his presidency might pursue; but Americans, especially those of them in the Republican Party, still have the chance to stop him before he stops them from clinching the presidential election in 2016.
Icheoku says Donald Trump survives always his gaffs but this Muslim total and complete interdiction or exclusion from America might be one helluva gaff to overcome. But the silly season of politics usually throws up all manner of feistiness, all geared towards clinching the party's ticket. How else does anyone candidate do it other than throwing the proverbial red meat to satisfy the far fringed right fanatics who pick the presidential candidate of the Republican Party. Possibly The Donald is just playing his card very close to his chest and would revert to the center once the nomination is secured. But such gambling, might be too risky, regardless.
