JNS.org – In a statement following Sunday’s terrorist shooting at the Orlando LGBT nightclub Pulse, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said that as president he will refuse “to allow America to become a place where gay people, Christian people, Jewish people, are targets of intimidation and persecution by radical Islamic preachers of hate and violence.”

“This is not just a national security issue. It is a quality-of-life issue. If we want to protect the quality of life for all Americans — women, children, gay and straight, Jews and Christians, then we need to tell the truth about radical Islam and we need to do it now.We need to tell the truth also when how radical Islam is coming to our shores. With these people, folks, it’s coming,” Trump said in a speech on the topic of national security on Monday in New Hampshire.

Trump also called on Americans to “tell the truth about radical Islam,” and repeated his campaign’s position that the US should pause immigration from countries where there’s ”a proven history of terrorism,” this time shying away from referring to all Muslims.

Watchdog Uncovers New Members in Antisemitic Student Ring at U of Tennessee That Supports Terrorism, Lauds Hitler

A ring of antisemitic students at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK) has turned out to be larger than originally...

Trump’s remarks come amid new reports that the Islamic State terror group is encouraging its followers to carry out more attacks in the United States during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, according to Arabic media.

“The infidel crusaders, lackeys of the Jews, should prepare for the holy month of Ramadan, which, for them, will be a month of disasters — especially in Europe and America,” threatened Islamic State spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani in a recorded message a month before the Muslim holiday, according to Israel Hayom.

On Monday, a suspected Islamist attacker stabbed a French police commander and his partner to death, an attack claimed by Islamic State. The Islamic State-affiliated Amaq news agency reported Monday that the terror group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been killed in a U.S. drone strike in the northeastern Syrian city of Raqqa, Reuters reported.

    As a Jewish American I am not the least bit concerned about being targeted by “radical Islam”! My fear is the alt-right white supremacists that support Trump. He has done nothing to stop their scary attacks on Jews that appear to criticize their supreme leader and “Daddy”. Why should we trust or believe anything this hate fueled demagogue espouses? We don’t and will do everything possible to insure that he is never allowed in a position of power!
