Muslim man prayingA U.S.-born Israeli author and expert on the Middle East advises the Trump administration to stand by banning Muslims from entering the United States.

The Trump administration has gone out of its way to insist that both the first and second travel ban executive orders were not Muslim bans, as they only applied to a handful of Islamic-dominated countries that have been incubators for terrorism. But left-wing judges did not care, claiming that comments Trump made during the campaign about banning Muslims should be used as a justification for slapping down the second ban.

Rubin, David"It needs to be stated clearly that we're talking about a political ideology that is intrinsically contrary to Judeo-Christian civilization," points put David Rubin, the former mayor of the Israeli city of Shilo and author of several books on Islamic terrorism. "I don't think that people need to hesitate in stating the truth."

He wonders what would have happened had Adolph Hitler called Nazism a religion.

"What if he said that they had a particular belief in a god? So would that make it a religion? Or would it remain the dangerous ideology that it was? And … let's say that Communists weren't atheists," Rubin continues. "And they stated that they're a religion; they believe in a god. So does that mean that communism should be given the same equal protection as all the other religions? I say no, and common sense says no."

So Rubin reiterates that the president does not need to shirk away from what he said during the campaign about banning Muslims.
