World Leaders Respond To Trump’s Muslim Ban

With airports across the world being thrown into chaos, families split up, and dreams of a better life smashed – world leaders have spoken out against the xenophobic hate-monger Trump. The reprimand of the anti-globalist has been firm.

  •  German Chancellor Angela Merkel “ [we] regret the US government’s entry ban against refugees and the citizens of certain countries … The Geneva refugee convention requires the international community to take in war refugees on humanitarian grounds. All signatory states are obligated to do”
  • French President Francois Hollande Faced with an unstable and uncertain world, withdrawal into oneself is a dead-end response … and when he refuses the arrival of refugees, while Europe has done its duty, we have to respond”
  • Aotearoan Prime Minister Bill English “Discriminating against refugees and migrants is not the New Zealand way”
  • Chinese President Xi Jinping Globalisation should be more inclusive”
  • Iranian President Hassan Rouhani “Limits are visible insult to Muslims”
  • Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari “We were not invited to the inauguration … now this”
  • Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “Canadians will welcome you regardless of your faith. Diversatiy is our strenght”
  • British Prime Minister Theresa May “we do not agree with Trump’s ban on Muslims, the approach is not one we will be taking”
  • Retno Marsudi Foreign Minister of Indonesia “We have deep regrets about the policy”

Criticism of the dangerous, racist, isolationist has been near universal – with leaders from all levels of the spectrum making clear that Donald Trump’s Islamophobic decree is beyond the pale.

The noticeable exception in this chorus of righteous indignation is Russian President Vladimir Putin. Rather than condemning Trump – Putin spent an hour on the phone praising him. This is hardly surprising from a man who is well known to hold his own bigoted beliefs against a more inclusive global community.

It is clear that storm clouds are gathering for minorities in the United States – we call out for world leaders to be even more vocal in their opposition of Trump’s racist policies.

This is just horrible! All Muslims want to do is to come to America and enjoy the American dream while practising and preaching Islam. What is WRONG with that?? What gives America the right to say who can and who can’t come to America?? America is a multicultural nation – it belongs to the whole world!!

I was speaking to one of my colleagues the other day, and he said, quite correctly, that America doesn’t have a culture. That is absolutely right! America has an evolving culture, which is determined by who immigrates here and who has the highest birth rates. If Muslims immigrate to America and have enough children here, then this is to some extent a Muslim country! If you don’t agree with this then you are a racist and an Islamophobe!

I am triggered that Trump has STILL NOT introduced Sharia Law, despite my article on the subject having appeared a full two weeks ago. Which bit of ‘we need Sharia Law’ does he not understand? When I heard his speech ‘we’re going to make change RIGHT NOW!’ I was hopeful, but it seems to have been mere hyperbole on his part.

Need to read up a bit more, sorry to say that CNN and Schumer lied to you. There is no Muslim ban. Be sure to pass this on to Soros!

trump removed the kebab. all you sharia law activists will have to bring your ideological repression to Canada instead. No more durkas in burkas will be welcomed in with open arms.

Islam is an anti intellectual religion. Saudi Arabia epitomizes everything wrong with the religion with their repression of women, gays, critical thinking etc and yet you liberal commie fucks wanna bring in the middle east to the west.

cant wait til george soros gets arrested by trump and he gets charged with terrorism and executed via catapult.

george carlin, eat your heart out

Interesting. I would like to know (1) what George Carlin has to do with Islam, (2) which is an intellectual, based-on-facts religion, and (3) how are US republicans different from Saudi Arabia with their constant oppression of minorities, transgender people, and women.

It is so scary what’s happening with fascism coming to America.

My friend Aashiq thinks things will be ok, but I worry for him. He’s says I should keep doing my art and learning to cook middle eastern food. He told me if people see that white middle class girls want to assimilate with Muslims, others will come around. I believe him!

If that’s Trump’s World War II uniform, he’s much older than I thought. When I clicked the picture to see if he was sitting in a wheelchair, I couldn’t get back to where I was. Spooky, I think it’s haunted!

I think the Accredited Times needs to show unity with muslims at this difficult time. They need to know the West is compassionate and with them in this struggle against bigotry.

How about we all submit a cartoon that says ‘I’m with Mohammed!’ together with a drawing of the Prophet?

Rich, if you agree I’m happy to let you go first given you are the author of this timely article. Then perhaps MDB as chief editor? Modesty prevents me from taking part as the initiator of this idea but I’m happy to be the judge as to whose cartoon is the most lifelike of the Prophet.

I third that! Unfortunately I won’t be able to submit a likeness of the Prophet, because I injured both hands in a logging accident.

Black Lives Matter

Just to clarify, when you say “a drawing of the Prophet,” which Prophet are you referring to? — Mohammed or Obama?

Pbier

Mo, of course. Obama is surely a deity?

Since you are not injured, please draw away!

Black Lives Matter

ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE.

Muslims would never harm anyone. Trump, on the other hand . . .

There’s only ONE Prophet, but it’s hard to find anybody who can do a drawing of him, so that we can see with our own eyes what he looks like, and therefore who he actually is!

Black Lives Matter

He didn’t have any. Mohammed was a big proponent of cutting edge medical technologies, like drinking camel urine. So he was very healthy and vigorous.

I’m with Mohammed!

This is the winner so far, but I will need to liaise in due course with the other two panel jury members, Ahmed and Usman, who I expect to confirm their participation shortly.

Black Lives Matter

Let me know what they think! I hope they like it. If you need to give Ahmed and Usman my address as part of the contest, just let me know.

Pbier

Thanks, BLM. We will need your full name, address and a photo in any case for when we announce the winner to the wider world. It’s important that our Muslim friends know the bridges we are trying to build at AT.

I’m normally on the street in front of the White House protesting police brutality, White Privilege, Male Privilege, Hetero-normative Privilege, and Islamophobia.

Fantastic idea Pbier! I will do that, and if someone tries to kill me afterwards, it will surely be a Trump supporter wearing an explosive belt.

Pbier

Why on earth would anyone want to ‘kill you’ for simply drawing a cartoon?

It’s Trump isnt it? Hitler himself took several years after his election before getting seriously nasty; perhaps Trump wants to up the pace a bit.

This is how bigots, racists, and sexists operate. They want to intimidate us progressives.

Well – they were TRIGGERED by insensitivity of Charlie Hebdo. Furthermore, this was a lone wolf attack which is in no way reflective of the values of all the community.

There have been several attacks, and in every case it was a lone wolf attack, may be several lone wolf attacks at the same time and place.
The ones who danced on streets are also lone wolf-dancers who were accidentally at the same time on streets. Hope this clarifies situation for you.

Had to flag myself as a speciesist since no wolves have ever carried out suicide bombings.

I think it is a great idea to do this.
Trump has attacked the Honorable Chuck Schumer saying he was shedding “fake tears”.
With his hatred of the media I am afraid Trump will attack AT next and say we have “Fake outrage”.
Doing this will show how real the outrage is.

MillionDollarBonus

Looks like I’m late to this competition! I honestly don’t think I’ll be able to outdo BLM’s depiction of the prophet, peace be upon him. I’m sure this will win over a lot of support from Muslims, who share so many of our values!

We’re about half way through the Executive Orders, and the media has almost run out of straw men. Trump is the MAN, keep ’em coming.

To other CRT specialists here – is a “straw man” sexist only, or is it speciesist AND sexist?

Jack ma Said:
“In the past 30 years, America had 13 wars spending $14.2 trillion … no matter how good your strategy is you’re supposed to spend money on your own people,” Ma said. “The money goes to Wall Street. Then what happened? Year 2008 wiped out $19.2 trillion in US income … What if the money was spent on the Midwest of the United States?”

Others have said our wars are causing the immigration crisis.

Since it is our fault, the least we can do is let them in to suffer with the rest of us.

Watched Miss Universe last night. Miss France won it. She said her country has open boarders and she supported open boarders as well. Isn’t the NICE?

Will Trump also use this opportunity to get out of Syria, instead of playing Bad Cop/Good Cop with Putin, and destroying the place?
Like what US/Russia did to Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran.

When governments express concern for the “oppressed” or “poor”, or whatever, people will have to be careful. The government will take wealth/effort from the hard-working, the creative, and productive people, and squander it away. We can see the effects of minimum government, maximal governance by eunuchs everywhere – cashless economy, biometric id surveillance, a million rules and regulations to prod and poke people every second of their lives, UBI, synchronized mass vaccination for minor illnesses already on the decline, …

Trump and his team, by not being concerned about Syrian refugees, and immigrants, will also not care about Syria and who rules it. Which will be good for Syria, and the Syrians.
