VIA| A Muslim Imam from Beaumont, Texas is angering a LOT of lefties by saying that he agrees with Donald Trump’s plan to stop Muslim immigration to the United States in the wake of the terrible attack in San Bernardino, California.
He explained his reasoning while appearing on the Sean Hannity show Wednesday night.
More from Fox News:
Imam Nidal Alsayyed, religious director of the Islamic Society of Triplex in Houston, Texas, told Sean Hannity that Trump is concerned about Muslims and Islam being associated with radical terror groups.
Alsayyed said it’s a “very wise move” to take safety and security measures, including putting a temporary hold on Muslim immigration, until we have figured out what’s going on.
He explained that many Muslims don’t understand what it takes to live in Western countries, such as not following Sharia law.
“The issue is a matter of different backgrounds, from different places,” Alsayyed said.
Trump has widely said that he doesn’t have a problem with Muslims and has many Muslim friends that he respects. But as this is an issue of security, it shouldn’t be a surprise that some Muslims might side with el Trumpo in order to protect themselves from terrorists as well.
