LET'S TALK ABOUT ISLAMOPHOBIA


trump's muslim ban explained: islamophobia in the US


Our explainer offers a few facts about the ban and expresses solidarity with the #ThisMeansLove campaign (details coming soon).
We believe that no person is illegal in a nation of immigrants, and our humanity must stand resiliently in the face of a growing fascist

ISLAMOPHOBIC RHETORIC: WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL?


US President Donald Trump’s travel ban on Muslims, which was recently overturned by the US Supreme Court, is yet another stymied effort to push forth his ambitious immigration policy.

Trump’s entire platform is a populist attempt to capitalise on the frustrations of America’s unemployment, racial divisions, and domestic and foreign policies, caused by previous administrations and escalated by his own.

Fortunately, it has been met with fierce resistance from demonstrators across the world, many of whom believe America is the product, not the victim, of immigration and should continue as so.

Underneath the rhetoric of Trump’s ban are a long list of contradictions, loopholes, and complete mistruths on which it is really based: America’s foreign policy of dominating the Middle East-North Africa region, controlling its resources, and humiliating its people.





BENEATH THE VEIL: A CLOSER LOOK AT ISLAMOPHOBIA



YOUGOV POLL FINDINGS



In America, Trump appears to be the de facto cause of the country's rise in xenophobia.

However, looking deeper into the numbers, one will find that the American Heartlands—the conservative, white, working-class types from the Bible belt and Midwest—form the core of anti-Muslim Americana.

A recent YouGov poll determined that 55% of Americans had unfavourable opinions of Muslims, but even more disturbingly, around 70% have actually never associated with one.

On the other hand, this bears irrefutable proof that, in the American Heartlands, most childhood monsters and superstitions have profound, irreversible effects on the adult psyche.

HOSTILITY TOWARD ISLAM IN AMERICA
EXISTS ALONGSIDE A LACK OF FAMILIARITY WITH MUSLIMS.


The same YouGov poll also asked respondents the following questions:







"Do you personally happen to work with anyone who is Muslim?”


74 % SAID NO




"Do you happen to have any friends who are Muslim?”


68 % SAID NO




"Have you ever been inside a mosque?"


87 % SAID NO




ANTI-MUSLIM HATE CRIMES



A Georgetown University report released in May similarly found that threats, intimidation and violence
against Muslim Americans have surged over the course of the presidential election.
Engy Abdelkader, the author of the report, believes that trend is linked to Trump’s political rise.

“Trump has seized on people’s fears and anxieties,” Abdelkader said.
“I think that has translated in a number of instances not just to hostility, but acts of violence.”

Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric has caused a sharp rise in hate crimes
across the US, where 180 were reported between March 2015-2016.




12 MURDERS
34 PHYSICAL ASSAULTS
56 ACTS OF VANDALISM




TICKING TIME BOMB


The irony of Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric is that the candidate who promises
to be tough on terror may be making America not only less safe for
American Muslims, but for all Americans.





MUSLIM BAN EXPLAINED




AFFECTED COUNTRIES


US President Donald Trump’s travel ban is an executive order (using Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1101) that targets 6 (originally 7) predominantly Muslim countries. The order places a 120-day ban on the US refugee programme, and a 90-day ban on citizens from the six countries in question.

Mon March 6 update: Iraq was removed from the list after criticism that the original order overlooked the country’s role in fighting terrorism.

WTF MEME funny muslim ban facts



OH, BY THE WAY...


All seven countries have been attacked by the United States and its allies in attempts to install
neoliberal “democracy”, AKA colonialism, to prevent the death of the petrodollar.







AND THERE'S MORE


General Wesley Clark mentioned on Democracy Now that, 10 days after 9/11, both Pentagon Secretary Donald Rumsfeld
and Assistant Secretary Paul Wolfowitz planned to lie in order to go to war against seven Muslim nations.
Those nations were Iraq, Syria, Libya, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran.

SO, WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?


The purpose of the Muslim Ban
was to subjugate oil-producing countries that stop trading oil in USD (petrodollar).
Libya, Iraq, Iran, Syria, India, Russia, China, and others no longer use USD to trade oil,
which is destroying US control of oil markets; precisely why Trump chose to work with
former ExxonMobile CEO Rex Tillerson as his Secretary of State.
