My dearest Donald,
You really have reached a new low. No true leader of a free world can you ever be. Should you ever succeed in your political ambitions – and I think you might – you’ll be a genocidal Nazi tyrant. At best.
First you went after the Mexicans. You said they were coming to rape American women and you wanted to build a big wall and then ethnically cleanse North America of 11.5m Mexicans. You may have somewhat missed the great irony of a white European immigrant’s son ethnically cleansing America of indigenous Americans, whilst moaning about immigration. And then you’d charge them for the wall.
Then you critiqued Megyn Kelly’s menstrual cycle because during the Fox News GOP debate she was a bit hard on you. You poor thing. I believe there are 33 shades of orange. I have colour-matched you as ‘new gamboge’. And how very thin that skin must be.
Then the Muslims. Killing innocent families of terror suspects. Illegal torture. Dipping bullets in pigs blood. Banning all Muslims from entering the US. Othering. Hate. Misinformation. Prejudice. Over and again. That you believe you have the moral, ethical or spiritual station to challenge the Pope, says exactly how imbecilic and puerile you must be. You’re living in a vapid bubble of celebrity where none dare tell you what an utter fool you’re being.
When someone at an event suggested a Muslim ethnic cleansing, you acquiesced. Since then, you’ve repeated lies, misinformation and prejudice from the anti-Muslim far right. Quite rightly, you’ve been described as neo-fascist. As a Nazi. Just this week, Bill O’Reilly and other right wing commentariat like Bernie Goldberg have come to your defence, imploring the people not to draw parallels between you and the despicable Nazis who caused the Holocaust – that there is no similarity, they say.
Quite to the contrary Donald, watch how easily we can make the case:
1. You have split people into a superior master race (Herrenvolk), and inferior races like Muslims, blacks and Mexicans who are effectively sub-human (Untermenschen). Just like the Nazis who allowed certain Jews through, you’ve already said ‘some’ Muslims, those who are your friends, are acceptable.
2. You are targeting an entire religious minority. Rather than pluralism, integration and accommodation, you are insisting on the brutalizing, demonisation and mistreatment of an entire religious group.
3. Your family reportedly came to America on a false premise which I believe you’ve repeated – as Swedish nationals. In fact, it seems they were Germans trying to hide their identity after WWII – what kind of people behave like that we wonder.
4. Your ex-wife Ivana, in her 1990 Vanity Fair interview, stated for the record, that you and your uncle shared Nazi salutes as a private family in-joke in Trump buildings when you met each other – a rather odd greeting and a sick sense of humour, unless it had some meaning, of course.
5. On Memorial Day in 1927, there was a Ku Klux Klan rally in New York. Two men died, seven were arrested. One of those arrested was Fred Trump of Devonshire Rd, Jamaica. YOUR DAD. And since then you refused to disavow David Duke, former Grand Knight of the KKK, when challenged on live TV about his support for you.
6. Last but not least, and yes, it’s kind of twee, but when you’re stood there with all of your children congratulating yourself and your ridiculous comments on the size of your penis, and the prejudice against the Untermenschen you’ve peddled; you and your kids look like the All American Aryan poster family. Just a co-incidence, no doubt.
Beyond this, let’s consider America. Our America. For our America it is and global citizens we are. After all, since WW2 you have invaded, usurped and gone to war with over 90 nations. People often forget that aside from Vietnam, America destroyed 85% of every single building in North Korea. And then 2 million people died in Iraq.
If I had my way Donald, if I wasn’t worried about becoming the monster you already are, I’d ask the Queen to revoke your silly little Declaration of Independence and take you back under British control. You’re bloody clueless. More than 400,000 domestic gun violence deaths since 11th September 2001. Millions hooked on heroin. Mostly white women and kids, incidentally. Record inequality. Corporate ownership of your public institutions and spaces which should be there to benefit the people. Honestly.
But the question for now: does Islam hate you, Donald?
A. Islam as the religion
The values revealed in the holy scriptures and the teachings of the Prophet, promote plurality, coexistence and most of all, PEACE.
The Quran as the final revelation of God completing the Torah and Gospel of Jesus, states the following:
“Say: O you who do not believe!
I worship not what you worship,
and you are not worshipping what I worship; nor am I worshipping what you worship; neither art you worshipping what I worship. Therefore, to you your religion; and to me my religion!” (Quran, v109)
The Prophet was crystal clear and warned against the mistreatment of people from other faiths:
“Beware! Whoever is cruel and hard
on a non-Muslim minority,
or curtails their rights, or burdens them
with more than they can bear,
or takes anything from them
against their free will; I will complain against the person on the Day of Judgement.”
Donald, Islam as a faith, a system of values and promoted beliefs, cannot hate you. And it doesn’t.
Instead it upholds fundamental and inalienable human rights especially of minorities – ones that too often the West has regularly disregarded and degraded. No reasonable, educated or rational reading of its scriptures allow for that interpretation. No, Donald. Unless you are following an extremist, ISIS-style, twisted and perverted understanding, Islam per se cannot hate you.
B. Islam as a manifestation of its people, the Muslims.
Donald, you need to get your head around a fact. The idea that America was founded upon an exclusively Judeo-Christian premise, is a complete lie. It was founded on the sweat, blood, toil and spiritual enlightenment of Muslims and with Islamic values and principles. Just as the idea that ‘Islam hates us’ is absurd and illogical, so is the erasing of the Muslim and Islamic contribution from the founding and building of America.
HEADLINE: the US constitution, the Founding Fathers, the thought and enlightenment behind them all, was entirely influenced by Islam, Muslims and Islamic thought.
Jefferson and Paine were hugely influenced by the ideas of John Locke and Francis Bacon. Lockean thought on freedom, liberty and government influenced Benjamin Franklin and John Adams. Even Voltaire was a fan of Locke. American ideals on freedom and freedoms which you cherish today, are entirely Lockean. So, what influenced Locke?
In Locke’s published works, he rejects (as Muslims do) the divinity of Christ and the Trinity. English Calvinists like John Edwards, accused of Locke of being Muslim because of Locke’s alignment with Islamic thought. It wasn’t a coincidence. Locke’s enemies accused him of being a Muslim who interpreted the Christian Gospel according to the Quran. Locke was the protégé of Edward Pococke, an Oxford scholar, who went to Syria and became an Islamic scholar. As a Christian. Pococke was a very smart guy, Donald. He considered Islam so awesome, so important the enshrined values on freedom and human rights, on plurality and enlightenment; he said every school in England should teach Islamic studies to every English child. Locke learned from Pococke, the Founding Fathers learned from Locke. And America lives and breathes Locke’s ideals in the US Constitution.
America’s history is utterly intertwined with Islam. Muslim navigators visited, traded and intermarried in the Americas five centuries before Columbus arrived with The Reconquista. Most of the slaves brought to American shores were Muslim. And where would America be today without the contribution of these Black African Muslims who, enslaved, built America under the yoke of white oppression? Arguably, they fight it still. And in Chapel Hill, we drifted further from the promise of America as another white American man slaughtered young Muslim hope.
No, Donald. Islam doesn’t hate you.
But be warned. You’re polling record negatives, and for very good reason. People instinctively hate neo-fascism and Nazism. Whilst your family seemingly supported white fascism, my grandfather fought for the British Army against Nazis and fascists. He lost two of his brothers doing so. Good people have bled fighting the likes of you.
We know your sort, Donald. Prejudice and hate are the currency you pay for power and control. It is a price you pay happily and readily.
We know your sort, Donald because we were told never to forget.
