Trump’s visa/entry ban on the un-Magnificent Seven – notable for what it does not include, Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia, the country of origin of 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11. The country which has funded the vast majority of extremist Muslim terror activity around the world.

Why is Saudi Arabia not on the list?

I think we could all have a guess!

Why do the people of Saudi Arabia grow up to be such hate-filled people towards the West. After all, this nation was a third world country before the oil was discovered. Yes, they were a proud people with strong cultural roots and a respectful society, forged in Islam. It looks as if the Imams and Muftis have taken a political divergence, judging by the education of its children.

This is what you learn as a young Saudi Arabian:

“…jihad, which is the pinnacle of Islam”

“In Islamic law, however, [jihad] has two uses: One usage is specific. It means to exert effort to wage war against the unbelievers and tyrants.”

“In its general usage, ‘jihad’ is divided into the following categories: … –Wrestling with the infidels by calling them to the faith and battling against them.”

“As cited in Ibn Abbas: The apes are Jews, the people of the Sabbath; while the swine are Christians, the infidels of the communion of Jesus.”

“The clash between this [Muslim] nation and the Jews and Christians has endured, and it will continue as long as God wills.”

“He (praised is He) prohibits killing the soul that God has forbidden [to kill] unless for just cause… [such as] unbelief after belief, adultery, and killing an inviolable believer intentionally.”

“Major polytheism makes blood and wealth permissible.”

In his paper “Textbook Diplomacy,” David Weinberg reports that current and former State Department officials admit they withheld an official report on the toxic nature of Saudi school books because it made the Saudis look bad.

So, the Saudis raise their children in such a fashion as to believe that the Sacred War against the infidels is not only right but is ordained by Allah, himself (this is a construct of Saudi Arabia, not Islam).

What happens as a result of this? According to the Saudi Press Agency, the United States has 125,000 Saudi students, which makes the U.S. the leading host for Saudis studying worldwide. The number includes students on scholarship and other studying at their own expense.

In a 12th grade textbook, Christians and Jews are described as “the worst of creatures” who “dwell in hellfire.” A 10th grade book claims God made Jews “swine and apes.” These publications are among those supplied to the 1,359 mosques (of which 16 are in the USA), 210 Islamic centers, 202 colleges and 2000 schools built by Saudi Arabia around the globe.

Just who is being so collusive in all this detritus of ethical filth?

The BBC, once a paragon of respectability and adherence to the search for truth still calls the Syria crisis a civil war. Really, BBC, how many journalists, on your payroll, do you have there?

TheBBC’s supposed cousins of truth, though younger, Al Jazeera, reports on Saudi Arabian air strikes on Syria and Yemen. Now, there are stories of the ability to identify which plane belongs to whom, I grant you. The fact that Saudi Arabia does not have an air force ought to be a clue! Don’t worry, the air strikes did happen, but not in Saudi aircraft!

I am not even going to bother commenting upon CNN, Fox, Washington Post, New York Times. There should be a new category of media for this lot with a tag which reflects their output.

I do not like the visa/entry ban; most people do not like it either. I strongly suspect that Donald Trump does not like it himself. The USA is not used to people making big decisions to fix something quickly and decisively for the longer term security of the nation.

Whatever you have done, Commander-in-Chief, I hope we are all able to say that the new President makes decisions with purpose and intent. You may not like it but you will, we all hope, like the result.
