Why Us Fellow Muslims Have Got Donald Trumph’s Comments Wrong

I also heard the comments by Mr. Donald Trump regarding not allowing new Muslims into the USA, which spurred angry reaction and signed petitions by many Muslims, including the UK were I am from.

Todays post in the Daily Telegraph mentioned a 100,000 signatory UK petition to have Trump banned from the UK.

The largest retailer in the Middle East has taken his products off the shelve.

The reason I think that some Muslims and signatories to petitions have got it wrong is that with regards to his ban Muslims from entering the USA, they did not carefully understand the context in terms of what he said after that, which was, “Until we find out what is the problem”.

I also read in the media that he said that if he was the President he would reveal who really knocked down the Twin Towers in New York on 9/11.

So it is ironically, when we as Muslims do fairly point out that sometimes comentators or media people take quotes from The Qur’an out of context in terms of verses before the words they take and verses afterwards,

To compound the problem, Muslims do it to, in order to give credence to thier point of view.

So I think finding out what is the problem with Muslims, why do they hate the West, let’s find out, do they really.  What has made them point.

I think the finger will inevitable point to USA foreign policy and is that not what many of us Muslims point to as reason for Extremism in all its shapes and forms.

That is a healthy debate, however many Muslims I feel just reacted as opposed to responded to the comments as a sound bite, without understanding the comments in line with Mr. Donald Trumph’s other comments.  Like?

His critic of how now ex-President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad was treated in a speech at a USA University, when his introdution was very much less then flatering.

See this comment at 1 minute onwards by President of Columbia University in 2007:

Mr President, you exibit all the signs of a petty and cruel dictator….

 

Compare this to Mr. Donald Trumph’s comments on the President of Columbia University’s comments at
this You-tube video:

Maybe Iran is an evil empire, maybe it’s not.  You got to talk.      This guy comes over to
this Country, goes to Columbia University, where the idiot that runs Columbia University invites him to make a speech, he then ridicules him before he goes up and makes the speech, I have never seen anything like it.

He gets invited to make a speech at Columbia, and the fool who runs Columbia University, he is a fool, gets up and makes the most insulting introduction I have every heard.  I am not a fan of him, but you don’t invite someone to make a speech and then ridicule him.

The man just said the worst introduction, it is the worst thing I have every seen.  He leaves this Country hating us.   {CSPAN Interviewer: Maybe he already hated?}  Maybe for good reason, maybe for things like that.  I am militaristic but I also believe in negotiation.

So my point is that we must understand things in context, especially in today’s confusing world and indeed as Sheikh Imran Hosein put its it, as a scholar of Islamic Eschatology that we are in very confusing times and many Scholars are not talking about the vital issues of the day.

So what is the take home:

Firstly why is it that some of the Muslims, get swayed by what turns out to be provacations such as the Danish Cartoons, now what I am saying here is not to be silent but respond rather then react, to know the overall strategy by it turns out, this being done by Zionist elements who saw the Obama Administration getting friendlier with some of the Muslim Contries.

Trump said that he does not drink and smoke and taught his children also to do nether.  His children are upright Citizens and to his politics, he is a reasonable man and will sit down and talk, an entrepreneur, much different to Bush Jnr and Snr. the later who in some other speech talked about his new world order and said, when we bring it about, and with smirk said “And we will”.  So should we not want someone reasonable in power in the USA this November 2016?

What should we be doing, I like the trailer to the recent Revival of Islamic Spirit Conferance that took place in Toronto, Canada in December 2015.

For a more balanced and pricipaled society.  Nice song here.

In the end if you are willing to talk to someone, it means you put some value in the relationship between that person, how more valuable is it when World Leaders do that and so put value between different peoples.

In the end a survey of over 700 men in USA found that what brings happiness is the value of our Relationships.  See the 12 minute TED talk here:

Just watching this nice 12min. TED talk about an interesting 75 year long study of 724 men on the theme of what
makes a good life.
I feel we need to not just have a connection to each other, but also a connection to God; Allah (SWT) as revelaed through his final Messanger Muhammed (SAW) Peace and blessings be upon him.
I like what Sheikh Muhammad Ninowy said that: This faith, this Deen of ours is a Deen of Love, no Love no Deen.
Sheikh Hamza Yusuf Hanson, I feel has understood these times, he has set up a Muslim Liberal Arts College called Zaytuna in California, USA and here is an interesting lecture.
 It’s time for East and West to meet in London and good people to heal and lead.
