Why Arab Americans Have More in Common With Republicans


Dr. Frank Musmar

Voting for Democrats is voting for the utmost Arabs enemy, Iran. The absurd atomic accord with Iran was the worst arms-control agreement since the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922. President Obama helped Iran spread its influence considerably and allowed Iran to continue to be an outlaw state. A democrat in the white house will sharply turn the United States relations with Saudi Arabia, especially with the Democrats candidate, Joe Biden pledging to make Saudi Arabia a “pariah” state. Why an American president even consider shaking hands with Iran? What do you hear in Iran? “Death to America,” Death to Arabs,” and “death to Israel.” Their mobs chant it; their leaders mean it.

The atomic accord with Iran motivated the  Norwegian Nobel Committee to surprisingly award President Obama the Nobel Peace Prize that a published Gallup Poll in USA Today revealed that 61% of American adults polled responded that they thought Obama did not deserve to win the prize. In comparison, 34% answered that he did.

President Obama arms-control agreement with Iran was disastrous and betrayal to the Islamic and Arabic world; a deal that supported the “Shiite Crescent” anchored by the radical Shiite supremacists in Iran to pass through Iraq, Syria, and Hezb’allah to the Mediterranean Sea, and Yamen at the borders of Saudi Arabia. President Obama supported Shiite Iran on account of the Sunni Arabs. The arms-control agreement relieved the pressure on the Iranian regime to increase its support for terrorism and other rogue regimes and expand its conventional military power over Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yamen, and be ambitious to take over the Arabic Gulf countries.

On May 8, 2018, President Trump did America, the words and Arabs a massive favor by withdrawing the United States from the JCPOA and signs a presidential memorandum to institute the “highest level” of economic sanctions on Iran to deter Iranian aggression. The Trump administration sanctions reached the Iran-backed Lebanese militant group Hezbollah at unprecedented levels, targeting lawmakers for the first time and a local bank that Washington claims have ties to the group. Currently, Canada, the U.S., Britain, the Netherlands, Israel, the Arab League, and several Latin American countries have outlawed Hezbollah’s entire organization considering it as a terror organization. President Trump deserves the support of Muslims and Arab Americans for his role in deterring the Iranian Mobs and Leaders’ dreams.

President Obama threatened Mr. Bashar Assad of Syria but did nothing to stop his aggressions on Syrian people; instead, he supported Iran that supported Hezb’allah, who occupied Syria and Save the Dictatorship of the Assad regime. Former Obama‘s national security adviser Jim Jones praised the Trump administration for its progress in Syria and criticized former President Obama for his lack of action in the region. “The Trump administration has had some success in defeating ISIS, which I think is commendable,” Jones told Hill.

Muslim Americans and other minorities believe that President Trump is against minorities; in fact, Obama deported 2.5 million people between 2009 and 2015, earning him the nickname “deporter-in-chief” from immigration activists. Many sanctuary cities across the country proclaimed themselves as such in response to Obama’s immigration policies. “The sanctuary city movement gained steam largely as a rebellion against what many liberal jurisdictions viewed as intrusive immigration enforcement efforts under Obama,” reported The Huffington Post.

Under the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton’s service as Secretary of State, weapons exports to hot conflicted areas exponentially increased. Those weapons have been used to commit human rights atrocities and, in some cases, have fallen into the hands of terrorist groups that resulted in an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya killing four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Weapons exports more than doubled under the Obama administration, and bombing campaigns increased to seven countries. Additionally, the Obama administration embraced the highly controversial use of drone strikes, increasingly relying on it despite the lack of oversight and accountability for the program killing civilians instead of intended targets.

Another take on the Trump administration is the Travel ban and the Terrorist Travel Prevention Act. As opposed to being an anomaly induced by Trump’s presidency, the ban was set in motion by Barack Obama‘s administration. In December 2015, Obama signed into law the Visa Waiver Improvement Program and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act, which designated Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya, and Somalia as areas of concern. In January 2016, one of the ban’s victims implemented during Obama’s administration was BBC Journalist Rana Rahimpour, who was prevented from traveling to the United States because she was born in Iran.

Muslims and Arab Americans migrated from undemocratic countries and perceived the Democratic Party as the symbolism of democracy, but “not all that glitters is gold’. The lack of political experience among Muslim Americans tend to blindfold the fact that the more religiously engaged the voter is, the more likely he or she will be a Republican; the less religious the voter, the more likely to be a Democrat. Muslim Americans are a socially conservative, family-oriented, business-friendly group; they are a natural GOP constituency.

The liberal Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to abortion and opposes any efforts to weaken or undermine that right. Abortion is an anti-Islamic act and forbidden in Islamic countries except in liberal Turkey and Tunisia. The latest Pew numbers from 2018 show the USA is home to an estimated 3.45 million Muslims, which makes about 1.1 percent of the total U.S. population. According to CAIR’s survey,  74 percent of the registered voters polled intend to vote in this year’s election. American Muslims are professionals, especially doctors and businessmen, which do not have to feel like minorities and vote for what so claimed as the minority party. Instead, they have to get engaged in America’s political map in the right direction to comply with their professions and faith. American Muslims in the USA and abroad must stand for the good and vote for the re-election of President Donald Trump.
