For quite sometimes, activities rocking American liberal democratic

institutions have revealed that sunlight is the best disinfectant.

It’s climaxing in hubris and backlash that’s driving abominable nail

of in-house terrorism into the coffin of American’s majesterial


In all of this, President Donald Trump has been made the fall guy for

standing up to the plague of terroristic agenda of IIhan Omar, an

Islamic mullah and terrorism advocate. Painfully, nobody likes the man

who brings bad news, in the words of Sophocles (Oedipus the King). In

this instance, Trump is the bearer of bad news for those bent on

truncating centuries of American’s hard earned democracy and her


Pitiously for Omar’s own pietistic religious ideology and in her

ancestral home in Somalia – an African country enveloped in turmoil

and bloodbath instigated by Islamic radicalism, Al Shabaab – views

women elevation, stardom or feminism as Zionism which must never be

allowed to stand! Americans and the Democrats have themselves to blame

for the freedom unlimited which secures places for bloodlust deviants,

moral perverts and blood-embracing scoundrels to thrive, even when

their own original countries have literally castrated them.

Since Omar was elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives in

2016 on the Democratic–Former–Labor Party line, she has repeatedly

been less than charitable on explosive religious terrorism issues.

Ironically, she is the first Somali-American, the first naturalized

citizen from Africa, and the first non-white woman elected from

Minnesota, and one of the first two Muslim women (along with Rashida

Tlaib of Michigan) to serve in Congress.

Omar is known to have strongly opposed the immigration policies of the

Trump administration including the Trump travel ban. She has been the

subject of several conspiracy theories, death threats, and other

perceived harassment by political opponents.

Besides, she’s a frequent critic of Israel. Omar has relentlessly

denounced American’s settlement policy and military campaigns in the

occupied Palestinian territories, and what she describes as the

influence of pro-Israel lobbies such as the American Israel Public

Affairs Committee(AIPAC).

In early 2019, Omar was criticized by a number of Democrats,

Republicans and Jewish civil rights groups for comments about American

support for Israel which drew on anti-Semitic tropes. Omar apologized

for some of the remarks.

In a video that inundated the cyber space for three days running, she

revisited the can of worms many Americans and the world view of her as

despised broken moral bankruptcy; a vessel wherein no one pleases to

associate with.

Omar in a press conference stated that she doesn’t expect white people

to denounce other white people when they commit acts of murder. In her

reasoning therefore, it is unthinkable to expect Muslims to denounce


I found Omar’s equivalency the white race with Islam quite disturbing.

Islam is an ideology while white as a race is not. Any person with the

idea of human sancrosanity should denounce indiscriminate taking of

life in any guise, either by white supremacists or Islamic terrorists.

President Trump has answered for himself some of the touching issues

supposedly responsible for his refusal to romanticize with enemies of

humanity. As expected, Trump encouraged Muslims who want to live under

Islamic Sharia law this week Wednesday to get out of America. It’s one

of the policy measures of his government to head off radical Islam and

potential terrorists attacks after the 9/11 bitter experience.

Trump’s righteous indignation wasn’t misplaced when he said, “I am

tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some

individuals or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks, we have

experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Americans.

“This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles,

trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought


“We speak English, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese,

Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part

of our society, learn the language.

“Most Americans believe in God. This is not some Christian, right

wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on

Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly

documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of

our schools.

“If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the

world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.”

‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is

that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with


“This is our country, our land, and our lifestyle, and we will allow

you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done

complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our

Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take

advantage of one other great American freedom, ‘the  right to leave.

“If you aren’t happy here then leave.

“We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the

country that accepted you”.

I’m of the view – like Trump – that America would go to the dogs if

the immigrants who can’t respect and support the ‘American dream’,

just like their forebears who toiled night and day, blood and water to

build the United States can excuse themselves from ‘God’s Own


The conundrum is, what then is the essence of having countries without

boarders, either physical or artificial? Can countries exist as mere

geographical expression without defined and designed boarders? Why did

Ilhan Omar not remain in her war-ravaged home country, Somalia if

Islamic terrorism is the best thing that has happened to humanity?

The world shouldn’t be taken unaware because an American political

scientist Samuel P. Huntington had already argued that future wars

would be fought not between countries, but between cultures in his

book originally published in 1999 titled The Clash of Civilisations

and the Remaking of World Order. The Clash of Civilizations is a

hypothesis that people’s cultural and religious identities will be the

primary source of conflict in the post-Cold War world. That’s where we

are at the moment, unfortunately!

Those slamming President Trump for insensitivity to racial amity in

their arguments fail to convince the rest of us whether or not the

founding fathers of the United States of America were given to

destructive politics of religious terrorism, cultural manipulation and

conflicts, as it is today.

Until the world separates emotion from reality, we have painfully

arrived at the tipping point of clash of civilisations – western

education against Islamic fundamentalism.
