John “Doc” Crawford stated in his May 21 letter that Donald Trump has a “lack of tolerance for Muslims.” He then said that “for all Christian voters, this should demonstrate an inconsistency with Christian principles, ethics and values.” I must beg to differ with him somewhat upon this overly simplistic assertion.
Actually, Mr. Trump is more accurately expressing a lack of tolerance for radical Islamic terrorists, rather than being intolerant of all Muslims. That’s exactly what so many of us voters are also worried about and Mr. Trump is only expressing our great concern about it!
Not every Muslim is a terrorist, or course, but it is a fact that all terrorists are Muslims or else radicalized Islamic loyalists. What all voters (both Christian and non-Christian) should be terribly concerned about is, which Muslims are the bad guys. Just tell us how we will ever really know. These are murderers! We can’t take a chance.
One thing that complicates this matter greatly is the fact that the Koran (or Qur’an) has a little-known provision in it (al-Taqiyya) that allows Muslims to lie and deceive to achieve their evil terroristic purposes against all the infidels (us — their enemy). Another complication is a lack of records on these Muslim migrants and also how are we are going to keep track of where they go once they get in here!
This is not a lack of tolerance for all Muslims, instead it is truly a major national security problem! Mr. Trump is 100 percent correct to be extremely concerned about his matter. Just look at what has been and is happening in so many European nations, such as France, who have tried the liberal policies of open borders that are absolutely ruining their countries! Is that what you want here, too, “Doc?” And please don’t try to dismiss us by calling us xenophobic (fear or hatred of strangers or foreigners). We have real reasons to be fearful! That’s what radical Islamic terrorism does to people. It is designed to make us fearful!
John “Doc,” you are an educated man, so may I humbly recommend a New York Times best-selling book on radical Islam? It is entitled, “They Must Be Stopped” by Brigitte Gabriel (2008). This should be a must-read book for those who are able to read intelligently in our population. I promise you all that it truly is a real eye opener on this topic!
“Doc,” you listed other criticisms about Donald Trump, but he seems to be the best choice we have now. I was a strong Ted Cruz supporter, whom I believe is a true conservative and a genuine Christian. Our liberal, secular and all too dumbed-down culture couldn’t elect this great candidate at this time, unfortunately.
Trump is by no means a perfect candidate, but I could never vote for the extremely liberal Hillary or the old socialist Bernie! I still maintain, along with the Rev. Franklin Graham, that America’s greatest problem is that we have turned away from God. What shall we choose — blessings or curses?
