The not-so-hidden subtext of this Reuters piece is that Trump’s policies regarding Muslims will only make the global jihad worse, by providing fodder to the jihadis that they can use to recruit Muslims who might otherwise have been peaceful.
A moment’s thought shows why that is absurd. What exactly constitutes Trump’s alleged “utter hate toward Muslims”? That he has proposed a temporary ban on immigration from countries with a high incidence of jihad terror activity. (The business about registering Muslims is a false and absurd claim; it was never part of Trump’s program, despite being relentlessly trumpeted by the establishment propaganda organs.)
This ban wasn’t proposed out of hatred for Muslims, but out of the manifest impossibility of distinguishing jihadis from peaceful Muslims. So Abu Omar Khorasani is essentially saying that because Trump is fighting back against the global jihad, the Islamic State will be able to get more recruits.
Spencer is right, of course, but the left will carry the message that Trump hates Muslims, just like they are now carrying the message that Breitbart is for White Nationalists. Lies are just what they do.
As for terrorists, they are not reacting to infidels on their patch. They’re not standing up for downtrodden Palestinians. Some people just want to kill.
