Trump Exposes the ‘Great Disparity’: Islam Good, Israel and Christianity Bad
Calling it like it is.
Ramadan is upon us and many Americans—not least the millions who were denied church access during Easter—are wondering: will mosques experience the same ban or will the usual double standard prevail?
Among those wondering is America’s president, Donald Trump. Recently asked at a press briefing why he retweeted a tweet by author Paul Sperry—“Let’s see if authorities enforce the social-distancing orders for mosques during Ramadan (April 23-May 23) like they did churches during Easter”—Trump said:
I would like to see that…. I would say there could be a difference. But we’ll have to see what will happen. Because I’ve seen a great disparity in this country; I’ve seen a great disparity. I mean, I’ve seen a very strong anti-Israel bent in Congress with Democrats…. The things they say about Israel are so bad, and I can’t believe it. So I would be interested to see that, because they go after Christian churches, but they don’t tend to go after mosques. And I don’t want to see them go after mosques, but I do want to see what their bent is…. Our politicians seem to treat different faiths very differently; and they seem to think—I don’t know what happened to our country—but the Christian faith is treated much differently than it was, and I think it’s treated very unfairly.
Needless to say—and despite the fact that at least some mosques, including in NYC, America’s coronavirus “epicenter,” were reported as open for Ramadan—Trump’s otherwise accurate observations were lambasted by politically active Muslims and their American allies/dupes. The terrorist-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) did what it does best—accusing Trump and his administration of being “insulting … Islamophobic, white supremacist and racist.” All the Daily Beast could do was throw its hands up in the air and appeal to the Islamic deity in an article titled, “Allah Willing, Let This Be Donald Trump’s Last Ramadan in Office.”
