Arab World Protesting Less To Trump’s Travel Ban Order
Even though there’s a travel ban temporarily in the United States for refugees coming from Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Libya and Sudan, some key Arab leaders in the Middle East are seeing Trump as a crucial ally against Iran and some of the Islamic extremists.
If believed to some foreign policy insiders with the Middle East contacts, the Arab governments are playing a dangerous game.
One said, “There’s a big blind spot… I do think there’s more than a little wishful thinking, and willful blindness, on Trump’s anti-Muslim bigotry.”
Meanwhile, King Abdullah of Jordan made a visit to Washington to meet Vice President Mike Pence at the White House.
He raised the new travel ban of Trump government and emphasized Muslims are the first victims of Islamic terrorists.
Abdullah is one of the most reliable Arab allies of Washington and it is believed he won’t go any farther in protesting Trump’s executive order.
Experts also believe Egypt’s president and military director Abdel Fatah al-Sisi too won’t protest as Trump has struck up a relationship. He was a prime target of criticism from Barack Obama following massive political crackdown in his country.
Trump expressed his admiration for him. Sisi was one of the first leaders with whom the US President spoke after winning the election.http://www.dailynewsz.com/arab-world-protesting-less-to-trumps-travel-ban-order/http://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/donald-trump-travel-ban-protest.jpghttp://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/donald-trump-travel-ban-protest-300x300.jpgworld newsdonald trump,king abdullah,Middle East
