Yes, Jeb Bush is Right

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Zakaria Amin

Repub­li­can front-run­ner Don­ald Trump's con­tro­ver­sial sug­ges­tion to ban Mus­lims from en­ter­ing the United States was the hot dis­cus­sion dur­ing the CNN Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial de­bate at the Ron­ald Rea­gan Pres­i­den­tial Li­brary and Mu­seum on Sept 15, 2015.

Re­spond­ing to Trump's pro­posal, Jeb Bush sug­gested that this would harm ef­forts to de­stroy the Is­lamic State (ISIS) ter­ror­ist group and stated, “We need to em­bed our forces, our troops, in­side the Iraqi mil­i­tary, we need to arm the Kurds di­rectly and all of that has to be done in con­cert with the Arab na­tions, and if we’re go­ing to ban all Mus­lims how are we go­ing to get them to be part of a coali­tion to de­stroy ISIS?”

“The Kurds are our strong­est ally and they are Mus­lims,” Bush af­firmed.

Yes, Bush is ab­so­lutely right as the world wit­nesses how Kur­dish forces are con­fronting ISIS in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion of Iraq and how they are sac­ri­fic­ing their lives for the sake of peace. Bush's com­ments co­in­cided with a sad event which took place in the same day when six Pesh­merga sol­diers were killed as their base near Kaske west of Mo­sul city was at­tacked by ISIS sui­cide bombers.

Bri­gadier Magh­did Harki, one of the Kur­dish fight­ers who killed in the at­tack, had a strong be­lief in Is­lam and he al­ways ad­vised his friends love their God and all hu­mans.

"You would not be a real fighter by be­ing in war front­line, but what is im­por­tant and what make a true com­bat­ant is when you love God and all hu­mans, and have an aim when you are fight­ing," This was Bri­gadier Harki's post on face­book just a few days be­fore he was killed.

The Kurds, who are mostly Mus­lims, are the best friends and ally of Amer­i­cans. No sin­gle Amer­i­can troop has ever been hurt in the Kur­dish ter­ri­to­ries so far. This can jus­tify that ISIS is not the true Is­lam at all, but ISIS is a group cre­ated for making Is­lam and Mus­lims ugly in the eyes of the world.
