During and after the presidential election campaign, taking note of the US new President Donald

Trump’s religious bigotry, racialism and extremist statements such as calling a “ban on Muslims

entering the United States”, “Islam hate us”, opposition to the Muslim refugees, especially from

Syria etc., some writers, researches and bloggers, including American politicians have called him

a “crazy person”, while some called him a “mad man.”

In fact, American President Donald Trump is neither a “crazy person” nor a “mad man”, as he is

acting upon the extremist agenda of Israel and India (Under Prime Minister Modi) without

bothering for its dangerous consequences which could envelop the entire world, including the US


When he took oath as the American president, it was expected that being the president of the

superpower, Trump would soften his attitude and would behave with responsibility. But, no such

a change has emerged in his political character, as he seems determined to follow the Indo-Israeli

extremist agenda against the Muslims and the Islamic World.

In this respect, through the executive order, President Trump on January 27, 2017 blocked visas

being issued to anyone from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. Trump also

announced strict conditions for the citizens from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, the

United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon. In his first interview with the ABC News, President

Trump elaborated, “We’re going to have extreme vetting in all cases. And I mean extreme. And

we’re not letting people in if we think there’s even a little chance of some problem.”

Althouth a federal judge temporary suspended the executive order on February 4, this year

restoring travel for refugees and the people from seven Muslim countries, yet the Justice

Department filed papers saying that it would seek to have the United States Court of Appeals for

the Ninth Circuit block the judge’s decision. US President Trump lashed out at the judge James

Robart in a Twitter post and wrote“The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes

law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!”

However, the executive order which he stated was part of an extreme vetting plan to keep out

“radical Islamic terrorists…the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas”—also established

a religious test for refugees from Muslim nations, especially from Syria. Trump also ordered that

Christians and others from minority religions be granted priority over Muslims.

President Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim order faced severe criticism inside America and around

the world, particularly Europe in wake of protest-rallies.

In this regard, a memo signed by 900 of the State Department diplomats opposed Trump’s ban

on refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the US has been

delivered to top officials, as CNN reported on February 1, 2017. The memo warns that such a

policy will not keep America safe, but it will harm efforts to prevent terrorist attacks—the ban

will not achieve its stated aim of to protect the American people from terrorist attacks by foreign

nationals admitted to the United States.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer, when asked about the memo at a press briefing, told

the federal employees who backed it to “either get with the program or they can go.”

Besides the resignations of some high officials, Donald Trump relieved the acting US attorney

general Ms. Sally Yates, after she told justice department lawyers not to defend his executive

order banning entry for people from seven Muslim-majority countries.

While, world leaders, especially those of American European and western allies, EU president

and prominent figures including human rights groups have blasted US President Donald Trump's

travel ban from the seven Muslim-countries from entering the US as divisive, illegal, insulting

and discriminatory—violation of the US constitution and the United States’ obligations under the

Geneva Convention on refugees.

Chancellor Angela Merkel said, “The necessary and decisive fight against terrorism in no way

justifies a general suspicion against people of certain beliefs, in this case people of the Muslim

faith or from a certain origin…these actions, according to my beliefs, are against the core idea of

international aid for refugees and international cooperation.”

French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault stated that welcoming refugees was “a duty of

solidarity…terrorism doesn’t have a nationality; discrimination is not an answer.”

In response to Trump’s ban on Muslims, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that those

fleeing persecution, terror and war would be welcomed in Canada. Turkish Deputy Prime

Minister Mehmet Simsek also expressed similar views.

Pakistan’s Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar denounced Trump’s travel ban, saying, “it won't

affect terrorists. Instead, it will increase the miseries of victims of terrorism.”

British Prime Minister Theresa May who took a harsh anti-immigrant stance in her former

position as Home Office secretary and was now leading Britain’s exit from the EU had refused to

harshly condemn the ban and revoke her invitation asking Trump to make a state visit to the UK.

In response, Britons launched a petition calling for the invitation to be suspended, which has

since garnered over one million signatures, and thousands marched in protest of Trump’s

executive order and May’s inaction in cities throughout the U.K. May has compelled to clarify

that she believes Trump's policy is “divisive and wrong”.

Human rights activists also denounced Trump’s actions, describing them as officially sanctioned

religious persecution dressed up to look like an effort to make America safer. And the American

Civil Liberties Union described it as a “euphemism for discriminating against Muslims.”

Despite criticism of the new immigration policy to discriminately target the Muslims and his

Islamophobic intentions, US President Trump remains firm on his extremist stance.

It is well-known fact that since the creation of the state of Israel through the Balfour Declaration

(1917) which was a conspiracy of the Zionists, the British government and the US against the

Palestinians, America has been supporting the fundamentalist regimes of Israel at the cost of the


In this context, American various presidents encouraged Tel Aviv’s state terrorism on the

Palestinians, occupation of their regions, including those of Syria and Jordan.

Once Henry Kissinger stated “legitimacy is not natural or automatic, but created.” Under the

cover of the 9/11 tragedy, the US President George W. Bush who was in collaboration with the

neo-conservatives and the Zionist Jews, orchestrated the drama of global war on terror to obtain

the illegitimate interests of Israel by targeting the Islamic countries and persecution of the

Muslims. Bush who used the words, “crusade against the evil-doers” adding to the perception

that the ongoing ‘different war’ against terrorism is actually a war against the Muslim.

By justifying the unjustified war on terror as part of the anti-Muslim approach, and with the

assistance of its Western allies, American President Bush and President Barack Obama

deliberately created chaos in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Egypt and Syria including other Islamic

countries such as Somalia, Yemen etc. where Washington was indirectly involved to obtain the

religious, political and economic interests of the Zionist Jews and Israel through illegitimate

tactics. During the phony global war on terror US-led Western forces killed millions of innocent

persons in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Egypt and Syria. In connivance with the Israeli Mossad,

Indian RAW, American CIA utilized a global network of secret prisons, foreign intelligence

agents and torture centers in various Muslim countries, including Belgium, Bagram

(Afghanistan), Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and ships where torture was conducted directly by the

CIA and FBI operatives. Besides encouragement to the Israeli brutal tactics on the Palestinians

and those of India in the Indian occupied Kashmir, CIA conducted Shia-Sunni violence in Iraq

and Pakistan. Now, terror-attacks on sectarian lines could also be noted in Saudi Arabia, Yemen

and Syria, while, CIA which created Al-Qaeda, also formed the Islamic State group (Also known

as Daesh, ISIS and ISIL) and Al-Qaeda’s Al-Nusra Front in accordance with the double game of


If dual strategy of Bush franchised Al-Qaeda, Obama’s double game franchised both Al-Qaeda

and ISIS in advancing the extremist agenda of the Zionist Jews, Israeli lobbies and the


Meanwhile, since September 2015, unexpected developments such as Russian-led coalition with

Iran, Iraq, the Syrian army-the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Lebanon-based Hezbollah in

support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, retreat of the CIA-supported rebels and mercenaries

after their failure to topple the Assad government, proving links of Al-Qaeda’s Al-Nusra Front

and ISIS with America and Israel, Russian President Vlamir Putin’s clear-cut statement,

indicating the Zionist regime in the US and Israel for their “phony war on ISIS” surprised the

Israel-led America and some European countries who wanted to oust Assad.

When Russian-led Syrian forces stared retaking cities, especially the Aleppo by defeating the

rebel groups and the ISIS militants who began fleeing, Israel and America were greatly

disappointed. Particularly, the agents of Mossad who were in collaboration with some of the CIA

operatives and ISIL militants arranged terror attacks in Paris, Brussels, Orlando, San Bernardino,

Nice, Munich and Berlin.

Besides obtaining a number of sinister designs such as getting the assistance of Europe for US in

relation to the Syrian civil war, persecution of the Muslims, creation of chauvinism against the

Muslims in Europe, propagation of the so-called threat of Islamophobia etc., Israel’s main aim

was to ensure the victory of the extremist President Donald Trump in the presidential race, who

manipulated various terror assaults in the US and Europe in fueling anti-Muslim racialism to get

the sympathies of a majority of the ordinary Americans who did not have much time to go into

depth-analysis and had been instigated by his emotional speeches, statements and false hopes.

Another major aim of Mossad was to give impetus to the far right-wing parties and nationalist

entities in wake of “Stop Islam” movement in the West, especially in Europe, which are

becoming popular by largely attracting their people—have also made electoral gains.

After facing defeatism in Syria by Russian-led forces, in retaliation, Mossad also conducted

several terrorism-related attacks in Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Egypt and elsewhere in the world through

ISIS. While in case of Somalia and some African countries—splitting away of a hardliner-faction

Al-Shabaab which is an offshoot of the Islamic Courts Union, though the US defined Al-

Shabaab as Al-Qaida’s ally, claimed responsibility for several terror assaults on the Christians. It

is what extremist regime at Tel Aviv wanted.

Notably, when, Obama’s anti-Muslim policies were clearly exposed, before the end of his tenure,

President Obama wanted to rectify his blunders. In this context, on December 23, 2016, the US

abstained and allowed a UN Security Council resolution, condemning Israeli settlement

construction in the occupied territories of the Palestinians to be adopted, defying extraordinary

pressure from the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s government which was already in

alignment with the President Donald Trump who harshly criticized the Obama’s policies on the

settlement issue and reiterated his support for Israel, while questioning the effectiveness of the

UNO, saying, “it’s just a club for people to have a good time.”

President Trump who remains firm to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to

Jerusalem, is supportive of settlers by pledging that the Palestinians would no longer have a

platform at the UN when he becomes president on January 20, this year, said, “We cannot

continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect. They used to have a great

friend in the U.S…the beginning of the end was the horrible Iran deal, and now this (U.N.)!

Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!”

On the same day, US Secretary of State John Kerry had also disclosed reality and issued a

desperate final warning to Tel Aviv by pointing out, “The settlement building policies being

carried out by Israel’s government on occupied land and applauded by Donald Trump were

destroying hopes for peace between Israelis and Palestinians…is jeopardizing Middle East

peace.” He explained, “The two-state solution is now in serious jeopardy…if the choice is one

state, Israel can either be Jewish or democratic, it cannot be both…the most extreme elements”

of Israel’s Right-wing were shaping the country’s future and strangling the prospect of a two-

state solution.”

It is noteworthy that in accordance with the extremist agenda of Israel, Trump administration has

imposed sanctions on Iran on February 3, this year. Earlier, the hardliner President Trump had

stated that he would abandon the Iran nuclear deal. However, Tehran responded by saying that

the sanctions were in violation of the nuclear agreement, calling them illegal and extraterritorial.

As regards South Asia, by pursuing the double standards of the US in its worst form, President

Trump also intends to favour India, while opposing the nuclear weapons of Pakistan. True to his

own extremist and fanatic approach, Trump has brushed aside the ground realities that Indian

extremist Prime Minister Narindra Modi led by the ruling fundamentalist party BJP has been

implementing anti-Muslim and anti-Pakistan agenda, while encouraging Hindutva (Hindu

nationalism). He ignored the facts that besides Muslims, BJP and other extremist outfits have

also been targeting the minorities, especially the Christians and their places of worship. Trump is

also silence over Indian moves like promotion of religious and ethnic chauvinism in India,

creation of warlike situation with Pakistan, perennial atrocities on the innocent Kashmiris in the

Indian-occupied Kashmir.

Taking cognizance of maltreatment of minorities by the fanatic Hindus, and forced conversions

of Christians and Muslims in Hindus by the extremist Hindus, in the recent past, more than 200

Indian writers, authors, scientists, artists, filmmakers, film-stars etc. decided to return their

national awards in protest to rising Hindu extremism, while more than 100 persons have returned

their rewards. Former Indian military personnel have also started returning their medals,

criticizing the policies of the BJP government.

President Donald Trump is also silence over the facts that under Modi rule, New Delhi

accelerated unprovoked firing at the Line of Control in Kashmir and Working Boundary across

Pak-Indian border, as unresolved issue of Kashmir remains a nuclear flashpoint between

Pakistan and India.

Undoubtedly, the US President Trump seems determined to fulfill extremist agenda of Israel and

that of India. As part of the double game, based in Afghanistan, operatives of American CIA,

Indian RAW and Israeli Mossad which have well-established their secret network there, and are

well-penetrated in the terrorist outfits like ISIS, Tehreek-e- Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and their

affiliated Taliban groups are using their terrorists to destabilize Tibetan regions of China, Iranian

Sistan-Baluchistan and Pakistan’s Balochistan by arranging the subversive activities. In this

connection, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is their special target. Especially, in

the recent past, ISIL claimed responsibility for acts of terrorism in Pakistan’s Balochistan,

Afghanistan and Bangladesh, which are part of the same scheme against the Muslims.

It is of particular attention that it is due to the Islamophia, created by the anti-Muslim and racist

President Trump that on January 28, 2016 a mosque in Texas was destroyed by setting to blaze

by cause unknown. It shows that more assaults on the Muslims and their places of worships,

including their buildings are expected under Trump’s presidency, as Israeli Mossad is availing

the opportunity.

In this regard, six people were killed and eight wounded when gunmen opened fire at a Quebec

City mosque (at the Islamic Cultural Centre) in Canada during prayers on January 29, 2016 in

what Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called a “terrorist attack on Muslims”, and

condemned the same. The shooting came one day after Trudeau said Canada would welcome

refugees. A right-wing French-Canadian student Alexandre Bissonnette who was known for his

activity on social networks in support of Marine Le Pen, a French nationalist politician who

opposes Muslim immigration was identified who opened fire at the mosque.

It is worth-mentioning that addressing the US Congress on September 24, 2015, Pope Francis

said, “No religion is immune from forms of individual delusion or ideological extremism…we

must be especially attentive to every type of fundamentalism. A delicate balance is required to

combat violence perpetual in the name of a religion, an ideology or an economic system…every

life is sacred.”

Taking note of America’s non-acceptance of the Syrian refugees, Francis reminded the law-

makers by remarking that the United States “is part of a larger whole on America in the

Americas, where immigration is a deeply rooted part of history…we, the people of this

continent, are not fearful of foreigners, because most of us were once foreigners.”

At this crucial juncture, some American and western political leaders should stop irresponsible

statements by equating the war on terror with war on Islam, and acts of Al Qaeda and ISIS with

all the Muslims. Their media should also be brought under control through appropriate

legislation or law, as freedom of expression does not mean the introduction of dangerous socio-

religious dimension in their societies by dividing world politics on cultural and religious lines

with the negative projection of Islam which is a religion of peace, and prohibits any kind of

terrorism like other religions.

If not checked in time by the peace-loving Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Jews and Buddhists, the

rigid and racist policies of the President Donald Trump who is completing the extremist agenda

of Israel and India are likely to result into more recruitment in the militant outfits, particularly in

the ISIS group, inspiring the extremist Muslims for more terrorism-related attacks. This Mossad-

RAW-Trump cabal could also culminate into civil war in the US who is already facing multiple

internal crises which are owing to the prolonged war on terror (And in Afghanistan). While the

world has already been radicalized on religious lines, this cabal can bring about a major war

between the Muslim and the Christian worlds.
