The deputy chairman of police and general security in Dubai recently gave Americans advice on who not to vote for. Lt. Gen. Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, warned that a Donald Trump victory would provoke a “clash of civilizations”, a term that has been referenced by Hillary Clinton.
Clinton has been under the microscope for her stance on the war on terror and has been trying to distance herself from Obama by reportedly taking a tougher approach on the Islamic State, but she falls short in her condemnation of what she referred to as the “Republican obsession” with the “clash of civilizations”.
Given the fierceness of the Presidential race, in which attention is turned to public safety after the Orlando massacre – following those in San Bernardino, France, and Brussels, and amid sweeping reports about migrant crimes in Germany — Hillary Clinton is calling for unity and resolve to combat terrorism. In fact, she’s now “happy” to use the term “radical Islamism” — among others — to describe the ideology that has driven terrorists.
Despite the media hoopla about Clinton’s semantics and about her sudden willingness to use words such as “Islamic jihad” and “terrorism” to bump up her popularity ratings against Trump, the paramount issue is that no matter what words Hillary Clinton decides to use for votes, she has been abetting a victimology narrative that is ingrained in the stealth jihadist book of tricks. Hillary warned about the problem with “certain words” that make it sound as if the West is declaring war on a religion, which she asserts, helps to create a “clash of civilizations” that “is actually a recruiting tool for ISIS and other radical jihadists”.
Islamic jihadists are to blame for initiating the threat of a “clash of civilizations” on our soil, period. Had Western leaders controlled their borders in the first place, we would not be in a crisis. Stealth jihadists are like a cancer that invades an organism and needs early attention and “treatment”, because the more you ignore it, the more it spreads, and the required remedy becomes even more severe.
A clash of civilizations already existed long before it exploded on 9/11 within our borders, and it continues to gain momentum.
Calls for Islamic jihad against the West, followed up by deadly attacks and open calls for the murder of gays; honor killings on our soil; in addition to the practices of beheadings in Islamic states; as well as stonings and widespread Christian persecution, are all examples of clashes between our culture of celebrating life and human rights verses the Sharia culture of celebrating death and destruction. Our challenge is to enforce laws and uphold our constitutions as universal principles applying to people of every race and religion who enter our nations through immigration. In fact, we don’t hear the term “clash of civilizations” to reference any other visible minority group in the West.
If Hillary Clinton continues to prevaricate about the threat of Islamic jihad, then she will fuel the worst kind of racism that America has seen. Already, I have personally heard of talk of Sikhs and brown members of other faith communities experiencing heckling and harassment because of what Muslim jihadists have inflicted on our society.
Anger against Muslims is intensified when the death of Americans is trivialized and treated secondarily in order to avoid accusations of racism and Islamophobia. The battle against racism is another battle to be dealt with outside the realms of homeland security.
“Donald Trump victory would provoke ‘clash of civilizations’, Arab security chief warns”, by Tom Brooks-Pollock, Independent, March 11, 2016:
A “clash of civilisations” between the West and the Islamic world would erupt if Donald Trump wins the US presidential election, a senior Arab Gulf security official has said.
In the latest sign of disquiet in the Middle East over the Republican presidential frontrunner’s comments about Muslims, Lt Gen Dhahi Khalfan Tamim suggested a Trump victory would result in a face-off with Isis and its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Lt Gen Tamim, Dubai’s deputy chairman of police and security, tweeted after Mr Trump declined to row back on his recent statement that “Islam hates the West” during Thursday’s Republican debate in Miami.
Mr Trump said during the debate that to do so would be bowing to the forces of political correctness.
Referring to political scientist Samuel P Huntington’s theory that future wars would be fought between cultures, Lt Gen Tamim wrote: “If Trump beats Hillary [Clinton], that means that the scenario of the clash of civilizations created by Samuel will come to light at the hands of the candidate and al-Baghdadi.”….
