Heed Europe’s les­son

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - DON­ALD MOSKOWITZ Lon­don­derry, New Hamp­shire

The ter­ror­ist bomb­ings in Bel­gium and the ter­ror­ist at­tacks in New York, France, Ger­many, Spain, the U.K. and the U.S. are all in­dica­tive of the vi­o­lent Is­lamic ex­trem­ism now per­vad­ing the world. Mus­lim at­tacks on non-Mus­lims have pro­lif­er­ated in Europe over the years.

Europe mur­dered 6 mil­lion Jews and now has 50 mil­lion Mus­lims. Euro­pean coun­tries should stop ab­sorb­ing im­mi­grants from the Mid­dle East and North Africa and de­port po­ten­tial ter­ror­ists.

The U.S. should pay at­ten­tion to the prob­lems in Europe and keep out im­mi­grants from coun­tries that spawn ter­ror­ists. Some lib­eral re­li­gious or­ga­ni­za­tions and in­di­vid­u­als be­lieve we should show com­pas­sion and open our bor­ders to peo­ple from the Mid­dle East and North Africa. Hope­fully the courts will up­hold Pres­i­dent Trump’s ban on im­mi­grants from the coun­tries that spawn Is­lamic ter­ror­ists.

Pre­vi­ous im­mi­grants en­tered the U.S. to build bet­ter lives for them­selves, to as­sim­i­late and to con­trib­ute to our coun­try. Con­versely many of the im­mi­grants from the Mid­dle East do not want to as­sim­i­late, and some are prone to vi­o­lence and choose to at­tack non-Mus­lims.

Ex­ist­ing po­ten­tial ter­ror­ists must be fer­reted out and pur­sued. Rad­i­cal Mus­lim lead­ers in the U.S., such as Louis Far­rakhan, should be un­der con­stant sur­veil­lance.
