All we are saying,is give Trump a chance

Reader comment on item: Smoking Out Islamists via Extreme Vetting

Submitted by Stan (United States), Feb 1, 2017 at 08:09

I have much respect for Mr.Pipes and have heard him speak a number of times as well as having read his articles.I believe that there is a bigger issue that will have to be addressed sooner or later.

Our previous president as well as some other people in high positions have done much to assert misleading opinions about Islam and Muslims.Statements like Islam being a religion of peace,not being able to say radical Islam or even ISIS has gone far to try to make Islam,as practiced today,a lot more palpable.
Whether the number is 10 percent or 25 percent-the number of Muslims who would like to impose Sharia law on the rest of us is huge.Although I think its a difficult place to go,my opinion is that anything that both slows down the number of Muslims coming to this country and also discourages people from idealizing the religion and how it is practiced.

As is the case with the so called peace process in the Mid east or here in the states,I have seen over and over that the only thing that is respected by Muslims is power.
The only way that things will progress and make us all safer,is to continue to question,vet,and otherwise discourage people who try to hide behind our liberal immigration policies.

What Mr. Trump has done is a good first step.
