The Arab American National Museum hosts a town hall-style meeting exploring two executive orders: The World War II-era order causing internment of Japanese Americans and this year’s attempt to ban travel from seven Muslim-majority nations.
The “town hall-style” meeting is being held at a location that even Politico described as one of concern:
Dearborn, Michigan, may be the closest thing America has to a Mollenbeek, the seething, Islamicized neighborhood of Brussels believed to have harbored the terrorists involved in both the metro and airport attacks this week and last fall’s slaughter in Paris. An ordinary Detroit suburb sometimes called the “Arab Capital of North America,” Dearborn has the nation’s largest mosque; it’s home to the Arab Museum, Middle Eastern cafes, and halal beef burgers at McDonald’s.
The absurdity of comparing the Japanese internment to Trump’s travel ban should be obvious, but Islamic victimhood propaganda is rife these days. The “Japanese Internment Order” has been well established to be a racist order leading to innocent members of the Japanese community suffering gross injustice. The U.S. apologized in 1988 and offered “payment to surviving internees.” The seven Muslim-majority countries listed in Trump’s executive order on immigration were identified as “countries of concern” under the Obama administration in a bill that Barack Obama signed in December 2015. Trump followed through based on sound reasons of security.
In taking a lesson from Europe’s suicidal immigration policy, the European Union’s Security chief has now declared that the UK is home to up to 35,000 “fanatical Islamists,” while France is home to about 17,000. Altogether, there are tens of thousands of jihadists scattered throughout Europe.
Given these facts, here we go again with the victimology subterfuge, now at the The Arab American National Museum. It is the same tactic underlying the “Islamophobia” narrative that is being rammed down the throat of Westerners by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
A comparison similar to this came from Turkish despot Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who compared “Islamophobia” to antisemitism, and wants “Islamophobia” declared a crime against humanity.
“Japanese Internment, Muslim Travel Ban Topics of Town Hall”, Associated Press, September 3, 2017:
DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — The Arab American National Museum hosts a town hall-style meeting exploring two executive orders: The World War II-era order causing internment of Japanese Americans and this year’s attempt to ban travel from seven Muslim-majority nations.
The museum in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn on Friday plans its third annual 9/11 Anniversary Town Hall entitled Executive Orders: Japanese Internment & the Muslim Ban.
Organizers say panelists will reflect on the 75th anniversary of the order affecting Japanese Americans and the travel ban, which was legally challenged and revised under limitations set by the Supreme Court.
