PRAYER ALERT on drive out terrorists. Sunday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, US President Donald Trump spoke to the leaders of 50 Muslim-majority nations. He thanked the leaders for their warm reception. He commended their Muslim majorities for being largely tolerant, friendly and peace-loving. But Trump contrasted them with the tiny minorities of Islamic terrorists who were ideologically rigid, hostile and war-mongering. The two groups, he said, represent a choice between two futures for their nations. And not only for their nations, but for their own families and for coming generations.
“It is a choice that America cannot make for you. A better future is only possible if your nations drive out terrorists… Drive them out. Drive them out of your places of worship.” Trump pressed further: “drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy land. And drive them out of this earth.”
Trump called on the 50 Muslim heads of states to lead the way through this great historical crisis. He said he came not to tell them how to live or how to worship. He came to offer partnership. For the US—and the entire world—has a great stake in this. The US has suffered thousands of deaths from a small number of Islamic terrorists. Also, Europe, Africa and the Far East have suffered from countless horrific terrorist attacks. But the Muslim-majority nations have suffered by far the most. Ninety-five percent of the victims of terrorism are Muslim. Now millions are fleeing from Muslim-majority nations because of a tiny minority of terrorists.
The US president said that the Mideast should be a region where newcomers flock to find work and raise families and prosper. It is rich in history, resources, and a variety of cultures. Partnership with the US and the world could make it far richer. Instead, terrorists are destroying its historical landmarks, usurping its resources, and persecuting people of different religions and cultures. They are impoverishing and crippling their nations. The terrorists are throwing the youth out of work, then offering them glamorized jobs at destroying the lives of others. But they are destroying their own lives too. For “if you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be fully condemned… Heroes don’t kill innocents. They save them.”
Trump encouraged nations like the UAE and Bahrain who are already combating the online recruiting of terrorists. He congratulated Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon on hosting refugees. He praised numerous Arab and Islamic scholars for promoting the rights of women, children and people of all faiths in ways that strengthened their communities…
