In the past two weeks, the West was hit by Islamic terror attacks by followers of 'the religion of peace'. The Paris attacks (130 killed, 352 wounded), which involved Muslim 'refugees' and the San Bernardino attack (14 killed, 21 wounded) by devout Muslims on a watch list.
All these acts are supported by the 109 verses of violence toward unbelievers in the Quran.
Recently, in response to this perilous situation that our citizens now are encountering, both presidential candidates Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump called for a moratorium on Muslim immigration until our leadership and law enforcement can get a handle on the problem Americans are now facing. This is all thanks to our porous borders and the unvetted Muslims now being injected into our population ... against the will of the people.
Is a moratorium really necessary? Here are some facts to ponder:
According to ABC Chicago, "In less than two years, ISIS has gone from a terror start-up overseas to what FBI Director James Comey calls a 'chaotic spider web' in the US, with young Muslim men being radicalized in Illinois and the 49 other states."
Like other Jihad attacks in the past, these two incidents took place in gun-free zones, so the innocent citizens present were unable to defend themselves. And more anti-gun executive orders (circumventing Congress) will be in place soon.
There have been almost 27.5K deadly Islamic attacks since 9-11 ... and they've all had one thing in common: Those that committed these heinous acts were followers of Islam. No exceptions.
Though most Muslims are secular, the 10-25% that are devout (like ISIS, Boko Haram, etc.) are among the migrants posing as refugees, and Western leaders are swallowing them whole into their nations.
The Obama administration has given refuge and/or permanent residency to over 280,000 Muslims (most unvetted) in the past year alone, and plans for thousands more before he leaves office.
These few facts should be ample reason to call for a moratorium to protect the American people. Yet, Mr Obama insisted that it's against "our values" and it's "not who we are" as a nation to ban these people from entrance into the US.
Really? Perhaps Mr Obama needs a history lesson ... it appears that a Democrat, Jimmy Carter, called for a ban on Iranians coming to the US in 1979 during the hostage crisis. And that wasn't the clear and present danger we now face with ISIS and its homicidal supporters right on our sod.
Muslim moratorium? Well, unlike the Left, who finds defenseless humans ripped from a woman's womb an acceptable industry, I believe life is inestimable.
And ONE single American / innocent life is WAY too costly a price to pay to protect the hurt feelings of any group of people.
Shalom through strength.
