ID of Islamists

Reader comment on item: Identifying Islamists through Interrogations

Submitted by Andrew (United States), Jan 13, 2016 at 09:21

Could it be that Trump by saying to stop all influx of Muslims until 'we figure out what's going on' he meant the same thing you are saying Mr. Pipes?

Basically until we find a way to determine who the Islamists among them are? Which I believe it a most difficult thing anyway, since most refugees have no homes or neighborhoods, most all of them have fake passports and you could look at their fb or Tweeter but you would have to have their real name, plus of course that most would lie to gain access. So it is complicated.

But it is legit for Trump to say 'let's wait until we learn more' and not open the gates like Merkel and Holland did to the detriment of their countries. It is also pathetic that the media twisted Trump's suggestion to make it sound like he permanently wants the Muslims excluded...
