A female Quatari Muslim journalist says that Muslims have no right to criticize Donald Trump over his call to stop Muslim immigration until proper safeguards can be put in place.
Writing in a Kuwaiti newspaper, Nadine Al-Budair said:
“It is strange that we condemn (the West) instead of addressing what is happening in our midst,” she continued. “It is strange that we condemn instead of apologizing to the world.”
She asked her audience how would they feel if Christians immigrated to Kuwait and were supported by the generosity of the Kuwaiti people for benefits, housing and healthcare, only ruthlessly murder their hosts simply because they were Muslims and not Christians?
“How would you react if a European blew up a theater in your city or a café that your son frequents?”
“What would you do if you heard curses against your religion and faith every Sunday, as they hear (against theirs) from some of our imams on Fridays and other days?”
She then pointed out that the Muslim world’s reaction is to claim that those who commit terrorism do not represent Islam.
“This is all we (know how to do) – absolve (ourselves) of guilt.”
I’m still reporting from Washington. Good Day.
