Muslim American Will Benefit the Most From Donald Trump's "Extreme Vetting"

Another day, another ter­ror attack by a Mus­lim scream­ing Allahu Akhbar and another batch of media sto­ries about that fabled Mus­lim Back­lash that like global warm­ing putting US coastal cities under­wa­ter never seems to hap­pen.

Ahmad’s ques­tion was answered.

My biggest con­cern is that he’s read­ily iden­ti­fied as a Mus­lim and then that is extrap­o­lated out to my own faith,” he said.

In the wake of Tuesday’s attack, some Mus­lim Amer­i­cans and com­mu­nity lead­ers expressed con­cerns over how their reli­gion would be per­ceived and whether Mus­lims would become tar­gets of violence.

Despite the lack of a back­lash over the last 17 year Ahmad and many like him, accord­ing to NBC and oth­ers are still very wor­ried, but there is an easy solu­tion to allay his fears.

This may seem coun­ter­in­tu­ta­tive to some but the peo­ple who will most ben­e­fit from extreme vet­ting are peo­ple like Ahmad. Mus­lim Americans.

You see as long as the vet­ting of immi­grants is sus­pect Jihadist will keep get­ting in and as long as Jihadist keep get­ting in to attack Amer­i­can Mus­lims like Ahmad will find them­selves suspected.

How­ever if vet­ting of immi­grants is extreme enough to keep poten­tial jihadists out by def­i­n­i­tion there are less poten­tial Islamic ter­ror­ists here, and people’s con­fi­dence that Amer­i­can Mus­lims aren’t here to make jihad against the US increases. If that is com­bined with Amer­i­can Mus­lims vet­ting their own com­mu­ni­ties for either rad­i­cal imam’s try­ing to rad­i­cal­ize com­mu­ni­ties or indi­vid­u­als who might get rad­i­cal­ized online that will really change the picture.

In the end every jihadist that Trump’s pro­gram keeps out is insur­ance against Mus­lim American’s fears of a backlash.

Because of this they should be the first to come out and say: “We Mus­lim Amer­i­cans sup­port extreme vet­ting because as far as we are con­cerned Jihadist and Rad­i­cal Islamists are not wel­come here. After all many of us came here to get away from that kind of thing.”

The day such an anounce­ment is made on behalf of the Amer­i­can Mus­lim com­mu­nity is the begin­ning of the end of the war on terror.


As I have no sex­ual secrets of rich lib­er­als to keep for a price I have to make my buck by going places and doing inter­views all the time hop­ing peo­ple like it enough to pay for it.

Another day, another terror attack by a Muslim screaming Allahu Akhbar and another batch of media stories about that fabled Muslim Backlash that like global warming putting US coastal cities underwater never seems to happen.

Ahmad’s question was answered.

My biggest concern is that he’s readily identified as a Muslim and then that is extrapolated out to my own faith,” he said.

In the wake of Tuesday’s attack, some Muslim Americans and community leaders expressed concerns over how their religion would be perceived and whether Muslims would become targets of violence.

Despite the lack of a backlash over the last 17 year Ahmad and many like him, according to NBC and others are still very worried, but there is an easy solution to allay his fears.

This may seem counterintutative to some but the people who will most benefit from extreme vetting are people like Ahmad. Muslim Americans.

You see as long as the vetting of immigrants is suspect Jihadist will keep getting in and as long as Jihadist keep getting in to attack American Muslims like Ahmad will find themselves suspected.

However if vetting of immigrants is extreme enough to keep potential jihadists out by definition there are less potential Islamic terrorists here, and people’s confidence that American Muslims aren’t here to make jihad against the US increases. If that is combined with American Muslims vetting their own communities for either radical imam’s trying to radicalize communities or individuals who might get radicalized online that will really change the picture.

In the end every jihadist that Trump’s program keeps out is insurance against Muslim American’s fears of a backlash.

Because of this they should be the first to come out and say: “We Muslim Americans support extreme vetting because as far as we are concerned Jihadist and Radical Islamists are not welcome here. After all many of us came here to get away from that kind of thing.”

The day such an anouncement is made on behalf of the American Muslim community is the beginning of the end of the war on terror.
