Islam: Trump provides some food for thought

Donald Trump certainly makes some outrageous statements, but maybe his latest Muslim-bashing could encourage some new ideas in the war against terrorism.

Isn’t it about time that our federal, state and local governments started enlisting the help of the Muslims to identify “radicalized” Muslims? I hope that the greater Muslim community would be just as upset or even more outraged as to what the “radicalized” Muslims are doing to innocent men, women and children.

We are currently losing the battle. The whole world is at “war” with the radicalized Muslims. Let us enlist the help of all the decent, peaceful, law-abiding Muslims to eliminate the terror that is happening in our world today.

It is time for our elected officials to stop the partisan fighting and together reach out to a Muslim community that could help us all.
