Trump Calls for Banning Muslims

The New York Times - blecch - tells us:
DonaldDonald J. Trump called on Monday for the United States to bar all Muslims from entering the country until the nation’s leaders can “figure out what is going on” after the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, Calif., an extraordinary escalation of rhetoric aimed at voters’ fears about members of the Islamic faith.
Well, there is a very good reason that many Americans are becoming more and more concerned about the behavior of some within the Islamic faith.
{The mass murdering of people with semi-automatic rifle fire in the name of Allah, while crying out Allahu Akbar!, will tend to do that.}
The truth of the matter is that since 9/11 Americans have been exceedingly moderate in their response to the Jihad, but things are heating up and the San Bernardino attack is going to bring out nativist tendencies throughout the US.
In the first time, ever, I recently saw fear in the face of a friend of mine concerning radical Islam because her sister lives within a ten minute drive of the attack site in southern California.
For most Californians, until this moment, Islamic terrorism has been an abstraction and viewed as a result of the history of Western-American colonialism, imperialism, and racism.
Trump, however, is wrong to call on a ban of all Muslims coming into the United States because it is too much of a broad brush.  He is correct to be concerned, and the Democrats are fools not to be, but the ban should be limited to the current rush of immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa.
The EU is selling Europe the rope with which to hang itself, but that does not mean some innocent Muslim family from, say, Indonesia or Europe, should not be allowed entrance to the United States.
I know a thing or two about American History and given late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century disdain for both Catholic and Jewish immigration, there is no possible way that I would support a general ban on Muslim immigration into the US.
However, that does not mean that the Jihad should be disregarded, as is the progressive-left tendency.
Both ISIS and Hamas should be demolished.
The West is at war with political Islam... whether it likes it or not.
