Peace is the goal.
Though certain clueless celebrities should probably shut their very large and outrageously naive traps, it’s true that everyone, normal humans prefer peace and harmony.
The Muslim observance of Ramadan began on Friday and yes, that is about promoting peace and harmony.
On the flip side, we must also remember that the Islam faith has spawned radical observers, all of whom wish to harm those who don’t agree with their ideology.
President Donald Trump hasn’t been afraid to name the enemy – ISIS, Radical Islam, whatever – nor has he been afraid to hit that enemy with massive amounts of firepower.
He is doing this, however, in the name of peace. He wants to stop those who wish to cause innocents harm.
And his official statement concerning Ramadan is the perfect reflection of his ultimate goal, and his understanding that while not ALL Muslims are bad news, SOME most certainly are:
“At its core, the spirit of Ramadan strengthens awareness of our shared obligation to reject violence, to pursue peace and to give to those in need who are suffering from poverty or conflict.”
And then, the brutal but sad truth:
‘This year, the holiday begins as the world mourns the innocent victims of barbaric terrorist attacks in the United Kingdom and Egypt, acts of depravity that are directly contrary to the spirit of Ramadan.
Such acts only steel our resolve to defeat the terrorists and their perverted ideology.‘”

This is the message the U.S. is sending to its enemies, and it’s the same message of those with first-hand experience of Radical Islam, ISIS and the Taliban.
No, not all Muslims are out to kill you. But some are and they are all believers in a particular religion…Islam. The man who lived through hell (click the link above) hopes the world heeds this message.
Tolerance is one thing. Burying your head in the sand (something liberals do very, very well) is another.
“I reiterate my message delivered in Riyadh: America will always stand with our partners against terrorism and the ideology that fuels it.”
