President Trump has a very clear idea of what a Joe Biden presidency would mean for America’s security in the face of the Islamic jihad terror threat.
Washington Standard“Biden wants to terminate our travel bans and surge Muslim refugees from the most dangerous places in the world. He will open the floodgate to radical Islamic terrorism – and you saw three days ago what happened the beheading in France, and today it happened again.” Trump was referring to the beheading of French teacher Samuel Paty for showing a Muhammad cartoon, and the beheading Thursday of a woman in a Lyons church in yet another jihad attack. (Not to mention the latest Islamic terror attack that just happened today in Austria)
After the latest attack in France, Biden said Friday: “A Biden-Harris administration will work with our allies and partners to prevent extremist violence in all forms.” The fact that he did not name jihad violence specifically was portentous.
On October 15, Biden released a video message to Muslim Advocates, the association of Muslim lawyers that bears the primary responsibility for demanding that the Obama administration remove all mention of Islam and jihad from counterterror training and refer to an undefined “extremism” rather than to jihad terrorism, which the Obama regime immediately complied.
Biden also declared: “As president, I’ll work with you to rip the poison of “Islamic phobia” from our society, honor Muslim contributions and seek Muslim ideas. My administration will look like America, Muslim Americans serving at every level.”
Biden stated last July: “One of the things I think is important, I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith.” He clearly means apologetic information, not accurate discussion of Islamic jihad activity.
Biden made a promise that Trump referred to on Thursday: “If I have the honor of being president, I will end the Muslim ban on day one, day one.” There is no “Muslim ban,” but Islamic supremacists and their Leftist allies insist on calling the Trump administration’s travel bans on nationals from 13 countries a “Muslim ban,” even though five of those countries, Burma, Eritrea, Tanzania, North Korea, and Venezuela, are not Muslim countries.
The ban exists because these countries cannot or will not provide accurate information about prospective immigrants. The list of countries was devised during the Obama administration, while Biden was vice president. But that didn’t stop Biden from casting it in racial terms, declaring: “Muslim communities were the first to feel Donald Trump’s assault on minority communities in this country with his vile Muslim ban.”
PJ Media The utterance of the Arabic phrase, “Inshallah,” by Joe Biden in the first debate with Donald Trump, which basically translates as “Allah willing” is both mysterious and telling.
While Inshallah does literally mean “Allah willing,” and is regularly used to express modesty before the Supreme Being whenever Arabic speakers are discussing future events—as in, “Next year I plan on visiting the Arctic, insha’allah”—what very few non-native speakers of Arabic appreciate is that it is also used with great frequency by those who utter it to signal that they really have no intention of doing what they say they plan on doing, and by their listeners to express doubt or cynicism.
And it is precisely in this latter and subtle sense that Biden was using it: while Trump was insisting that he would eventually release his tax returns, Biden was saying, “Yea, right,” though—and again, this is the bizarre part—through a distinctly Arabic idiom.
This interpretation may shed some light on a controversial thing Biden said in a video directed at Muslims in late July: “Hadith from the Prophet Muhammad instructs, ‘Whomever among you sees a wrong, let him change it with his hand. If he is not able, then with his tongue. If he is not able, then with his heart.’”
Amongst Muslims, this hadith, which is sahih, meaning deemed authentic/canonical by Sunni Muslims, concerns the enforcement of sharia, Islamic law (particularly in the context of the doctrine of “enjoining the right and forbidding the wrong”). Muslims are taught to enforce sharia (understood as the totality of all good things) any which way they can: ideally through their “hand” (physical force, or jihad); if that’s not possible, then through their “tongue” (words, ideas, propaganda).
