Islamic Extremists Rejoice Over Trump Victory, Begin Their Plan To Overthrow American Democracy.
Donald Trump Is President-Elect, And ISIS Couldn’t Be Happier
The horrifying spectre of a Donald Trump presidency is cheering ISIS extremists with ties to jihadist outfits in the Middle East. They are celebrating because they are fully aware that this presidency undermines the U.S. and its moral standing in the world. And this, my friends, is because Trump has advocated potentially unconstitutional blocks on Muslim immigration. He has also advocated torture, and so it is no wonder that the rest of the world is viewing this presidency with alarm—much to the delight of the jihadists.
Social media sites associated with the Islamic State and al-Qaeda are hailing Trump’s win as the beginning of “dark times” for the U.S., believing it will bring about domestic unrest and burgeoning foreign military campaigns that will sap America’s strength as a superpower.
“Rejoice with support from Allah, and find glad tidings in the imminent demise of America at the hands of Trump,” gloated the Islamic State-affiliated al-Minbar JihadiMedia network, one of several jihadi forums to post commentaries on the results of the U.S. election.
“Trump’s win of the American presidency will bring hostility of Muslims against America as a result of his reckless actions, which show the overt and hidden hatred against them,” the essay continued, as provided by the SITE Intelligence group. This is a private organization that monitors jihadist websites.
Al-Minbar is only one of several jihadist-supported online publications that has been capitalizing on Trump’s stupid statements about Muslims during the election campaign. The overall sentiment for this publication seems to be that alienating ordinary Muslims is crucial to their recruitment of foreign fighters. And Dabiq, an English-language magazine put out by the Islamic State, notes its terrorist campaign in Europe was meant to stir Western governments into an anti-Muslim backlash, thus forcing European Muslims to choose sides.
