Jewish Groups Attack Trump Over His Ban on Islamic Immigration
A new immigration order of President Donald Trump has drawn the outcry from a wide range of left-wing Jewish groups, because it went into effect on Friday, January 27, the anniversary when Soviet troops liberated Jews from the Nazi concentration camp in Auschwitz.
The date is memorialized as the International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
“It is a terrible irony that today, the same day on which this order is to be signed, is also International Holocaust Remembrance Day,” the liberal Jewish group J Street said in a statement.
“The fact that President Trump’s order appears designed to specifically limit the entry of Muslims evokes horrible memories among American Jews of the shameful period leading up to World War Two, when the United States failed to provide a safe haven for the vast majority of Jews in Europe trying to escape Nazi persecution,” the statement said.
An irrational comparison, because Trump is not banning persecuted people. Under Obama, 99% of Syrians allowed into the U.S. were Muslims with 97% were Sunni Muslims last year. Sunni Muslims are responsible for 9-11 and every act of terror including Ft. Hood, San Bernardino, Orland, Paris, Brussels and Nice just to name a few, according to William Murray.
Syrian Christians, who are the real victims of persecution, including from the U.S.-created ISIS and the U.S.-trained rebels, were just 1% of Syrian immigrants allowed into the U.S.
For a rational comparison, it would make no sense the U.S. allowing 99% Nazi immigrants in 1940, when most persecuted people were Jews, and Nazi were oppressors. Christians in nations of Islamic majority are the new Jews.
Why should Jews today fight for Islamic immigration in the U.S. when Muslims persecute and torment Jews and Christians?
The doors of the United States have been wide open to the new Nazis, Muslims, while Christians in Islamic nations are treated as the Jews were treated in the Nazi era.
True Jews understand the similarity. Left-wing individuals, Jewish or not, do not understand.
Christians are suffering a Holocaust in several Islamic nations, with a yearly toll of 100,000 Christians martyrized, and are left-wing Jews worried about their oppressors not getting visas to the U.S.?
The U.S. has no obligation to take in refugees, Christians or not. But because the U.S. was greatly responsible for the war in Syria, by creating ISIS and funding and training the Islamic rebels, who persecuted and slaughtered Christians, the U.S. has an obligation and responsibility to take in Christian refugees.
Trump’s executive order declares that the U.S. will “prioritize refugee claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution.” That applies when “the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual’s country of nationality.”
Trump’s ban puts a 90-day pause on visas and immigration from seven countries including Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Iran, Libya, Yemen and Somalia.
The order also puts a 120-day ban on all refugee entries into the country and declares that refugees from Syria are not welcome until further notice.
The President Trump also addressed the topic of the Holocaust in a statement acknowledging Holocaust remembrance day.
“It is impossible to fully fathom the depravity and horror inflicted on innocent people by Nazi terror,” he said Friday.
“In the name of the perished, I pledge to do everything in my power throughout my Presidency, and my life, to ensure that the forces of evil never again defeat the powers of good.”
