PHOTOS: ‘I Am a Muslim Too’ Rally Over Trump Travel Ban

'I Am a Muslim Too'

Opponents of Donald Trump's immigration travel ban held a "I am a Muslim Too" rally in New York City's Times Square on Sunday, February 19. The rally came as Trump's administration has indicated that it's in the process of rewriting his controversial immigration ban so that it can more easily pass court muster. A Seattle judge had placed a temporary restraining order, stopping the ban until his decision on a legal challenge to it, and a California-based appeals court upheld that TRO. The "I am a Muslim Too" rally was designed to show solidarity for people affected by the immigration ban. According to USA Today, it was organized "by several groups, including the non-profit organization Foundation for Ethnic Understanding (FFEU)." Trump's ban temporarily stopped immigration from six Muslim-majority countries, and it indefinitely banned immigration from Syria. The ban provoked enormous controversy and chaos at American airports after it first came down, in part because it caught people off guard and roped in people who had already been granted green cards, although the administration later clarified that the ban did not apply to people with green cards. Donald Trump has said the ban was necessary in order to protect Americans from Islamic radical terrorists, as the countries affected by the ban have had ties to terrorism. However, critics have said that refugees from those countries have not been responsible for mass terrorism attacks on American soil. The ban has caused protests throughout the country since it was first announced, and critics have called it a "Muslim ban." Trump has denied that the ban is a "Muslim ban" because it doesn't affect most Muslim-majority countries in the world. (Getty)

American Muslims will have to suffer a long time, but this suffering is part of the struggle. Each Muslim is connected to the revival. They do not need to ‘crawl over ice’ to feel it. But it will conclude. There will be a signing of a treaty between Israel and Palestine, to return East Jerusalem, and then Black Flags will fly at the walls. How can this be true? So many things come true in the Holy Quran. All you need to do is read it. Christian polytheists who are not acquainted should search online for this prophecy. It will lift their spirits and give them peace!

You can’t be a moooslim and an American if you call yourself such you are following your koran and your lying through your teeth as your lying disgusting theology teaches. Take your satanic theology back to the hell hole of the middle east and rot with it there. It has no place in America and it never will. America is for the free not those that wish to enslave, kill, and hate as your koran teaches all that don’t follow it must die it is a sick sand turd blot on humanity.

This is so true. All these bleeding heart liberals crying over the way Muslims are treated…..look back at the 9/11 footage. You are all ignorant to think that these Muslims would not love to chop off your head as well. Just keep siding with obama. The greatest Muslim of all who has left the world on fire. Thank god Trump is our president
