Before you like and share any of the fake news being published by the mainstream media on Facebook and Twitter, before you join the marches, before you organise protests and before you sign any petition calling for the banning of a state visit to the UK by US President Donald Trump, try and ensure what it is exactly that you are so angry about.
Because what you are being told by the mass media – may not in fact, be what is really going on.
It’s not a muslim ban, its a 90 day travel hold on anyone coming from specific terror sponsoring countries and any media outlet who continues to call it such is adding to the problem by spreading false news.
The order states:
“I hereby proclaim that the immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States of aliens from countries referred to in section 217(a)(12) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1187(a)(12), would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and I hereby suspend entry into the United States, as immigrants and nonimmigrants, of such persons for 90 days from the date of this order.”
Notice the actual executive order doesn’t list any nations at all. It only list a code section. Now, that section of code was updated on December 18, 2015, as part of the Omnibus Appropriations Act of FY2016. That is where the list of seven countries, Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, comes from.
So who prepared this list?
Who was President on December 18th, 2015 when the list was created?
Now the left is calling it a Muslim Ban there is a problem with that. The 7 countries on the list prepared during the Obama administration are not the only Muslim nations in the world. They are not even the largest Muslim nations in the world by a long shot.
Here are the top Muslim Nations in the world by population, and none are on the list.
1) Indonesia 228,582,000
2) Pakistan 172,800,000
3) Bangladesh 162,221,000
4) Nigeria 154,279,000
5) Egypt 77,100,000
The largest country on the list is #7 Iran 70,495,782
Now if this was truly a Muslim ban, then wouldn’t the largest Muslim Countries be on the list?
