Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump wants to ban Muslims from entering the United States.
This, frankly, is the last straw in a high stack of ignorant mob panhandling ideas that have come out of his mouth since he announced his candidacy. Defending this idea in an interview with ABC News, Trump claimed that he is, “the worst thing that’s ever happened to ISIS.” The worst thing to happen to ISIS will be the resolve and heroic actions of our servicemen and women deployed there right now, and the thousands more ready to go. The worst thing to happen to ISIS will be a coalition of our allies relentless in their assault on this cowardly terrorist organization. The worst thing to happen to ISIS will be the entire world — including Muslims — coming together to defeat these thugs. Let’s be real — claiming Trump personally is the worst thing to happen to ISIS is more pompous than Obama claiming responsibility for the death of Osama bin Laden.

The post yesterday regarding my opinion of Donald Trump, though premature, was spoken from the heart. Waiving the flag and pandering to the crowd does not make you a leader. Calling for a ban of all Muslims immigrating is such a statement. First, muslims come from all parts of the world and refusing entry to the United States based on religion is unenforceable and ignorant. If the process is broken then halt all immigration and fix the system. The attached is a link to a blog where I have expended on my points regarding Donald Trump and the statement made.
I am alive today because a Muslim acting as my translator along with many Afghan soldiers helped me. Me not defending those men would be a disgrace to my character. It is time to stop painting a religion with such a broad stroke ISIS representing Muslims is like the KKK representing Christians.
