US President has urged the Muslims to fight against terrorist groups. He declares this in order to make war against terrorism none sectional or religious based.
In a speech on Sunday, he defined the battle line which according to him, “battle between good and evil” while urging the Muslim-majority countries to redouble their counter-terrorism efforts.
“This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects or different civilizations,” Trump said.
“This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. This is a battle between good and evil.”
Trump also acknowledged that the overwhelming majority of victims of terrorism are Muslim, calling Islam “one of the world’s great faiths.”
Donald Trump also dismissed the allegation that “Islamists” as the “footsoldiers of evil,” with no religious legitimacy, he thus put a distance between Islam and the ideology that fuels terrorist groups like ISIS.
Trump also departed from his Islamophobic rhetoric he sometimes deployed on the campaign trail, While cajoling the evil men that use religion to cause mayhem and havoc.
He thus promised that he was “not here to lecture” the Muslim world Trump exhorted Muslim-majority countries to do more to eradicate terrorist groups that claim the mantle of Islam, urging Muslims to “drive out” terrorists.
“Drive them out of your holy land and drive them out of this Earth.”
Middle Eastern countries “cannot wait for American power,” Trump said, but must instead “decide what kind of future they want for themselves, for their countries, and for their children.” According to Trump.
