Yo what’s up gaming nation badatgaming130 here and welcome to MY reactions to the #MuslimBan uproar.
WHAT THE -never mind, I can’t swear- WAS DONALD TRUMP THINKING? Doesn’t he know that his #MuslimBan that he’s been proposing since December 9, 2015, is unconstitutional, and WRONG?
Look let me give you some info.
I was born into a Muslim family. I’m not particularly religious, to the point where I have had a brief stint as an athiest for 6 months due to me questioning God, before converting back to Islam.
But where was I born? If one were to take a look at the top 5 Muslim-populated countries, one would think of one of these following countries:
India (yes, I’m aware India is Hindu-majority, but India has a large Muslim population as well)
Nope. I was born in the United States of America. I’ve lived here my whole life and I love it here. Almost everything here is amazing!
Have I been physically violent before? Well, as a kid who just didn’t know how to properly deal with anger, sadness, or just plain out expression, yes. I have been.
Am I Muslim? Yes.
Does this mean I’m automatically a terrorist?
NO FREAKING WAY.
The California attacks that were carried out in 2015 were, yes, carried out by Muslims, but they were mentally ill.
Paris attacks, Brussels attacks, yes, were carried out by Muslims, but they were not doing any favors for my religion. They in fact, were terrorists.
Oh yeah, let’s not forget the Lahore attacks that happened last year, which were carried out by Muslims. (Yes, they killed other Muslims, even though they were targeting Christians. And they didn’t even feel ashamed of it.)
But the problem with Muslims isn’t that a lot of us are “terrorists”.
In fact, the problem is, out of 1.6 billion Muslims, a majority of us ARE peaceful human beings who just want to co-exist with the rest of society, whether we live with other Muslims, Christians, Jews, or whatever your religion is – (No disrespect intended to any religion I didn’t mention, it’d just take forever to list all of them) – a small sliver of Muslims are terrorists.
And while that number does grow, so does the number of Muslims who ARE peaceful.
And why? Why is the number growing for Muslims who are peaceful? Because in the Islamic book, known as “The Qu’ran”, similarly to how Christians have “The Bible” and Jews have “The Torah”, we teach peace and tolerance to all religions.
There is even a FREAKING verse in The Qu’ran that specifies that killing other people is wrong. So ISIS, Taliban, and al-Qaeda do NOT represent the interests of over a billion Muslims all over the world.
Now to the political aspect of this situation.
Donald Trump has banned people from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Egypt from entering the United States. And ONLY if they are Muslim. If you’re Christian, come on in!
And of course, Donald Trump’s administration has proposed, extending this ban to more countries.
But here’s the sad part – it’s only been a day. And he’s already torn up Muslim families, helped ISIS with their recruiting campaign unintentionally, and caused havoc at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City.
While the solution for some may be our neighbors to the north, Canada, I propose that Donald Trump immediately reverses this executive order.
ISIS will use this for their advertising campaign, and this will play into the hands of terrorists. “America hates Muslims. Come help us fight America!” or something stupid like that.
Families have already been torn apart. Airlines are struggling to update their website with the new policy. People who shouldn’t even be affected by the ban who’s country isn’t even on the list, are being detained.
I am ashamed of Donald Trump.
I really hope he can understand the true nature of what pain he’s caused to the Muslim community.
Trump supporters, Clinton supporters, and others. What do you think of my perspective of the #MuslimBan? What’s YOUR opinion? What do you think Trump should do?
