It Has Begun – Entry Into Western Countries Is Tougher Now For Muslims

The threat to the Christianity must be very real for the Archbishop of Canterbury to issue a warning on Christmas Day that the religion is facing “elimination” in the Middle East at the hands of an Islamic State (ISIS) “apocalypse”. The Most Reverend Justin Welby called the Islamist extremists as “a Herod of today” – a reference to the Biblical despotic king of Judea at the time of Jesus’ birth.

Has Mr Welby overreacted or the world has indeed become a worse place to live? With less than a week into the New Year 2016, Muslims living in western countries have started experiencing discrimination, thanks primarily to the Paris attacks and San Bernardino shooting. It seems Western countries may have finally decided that enough is enough.


The latest incident – shouting slogans in Corsican meaning “Arabs get out!” or “This is our home!”, as many as 600 French protesters ransacked a Muslim prayer hall and attempted to burn copies of the Holy Quran on the French island of Corsica, in what seems to be a revenge attack prompted by the wounding of two firefighters and a police officer.

Apparently, two firefighters and a police officer were wounded in Jardins de L’Empereur, a low-income neighbourhood of the city when they were “ambushed” by Arab “youths” wearing hoods. The police later seized a number of weapons from the Arab mobs, including baseball bats, golf clubs, and a bottle of acid.


While it was a case of some Arab young chaps trying to make some troubles, it soon became a serious racial and religious issue when non-Muslim mobs retaliated by smashing Muslim’s prayer hall’s glass door before ransacking the interior and left about 50 partially-burned Qurans littering the street.

In United Kingdom, 30-year-old Zahra Ramadani from west London, was due to fly to Sydney with a friend but was contacted by the Australian High Commission to say her visa had been revoked and that she was no longer eligible for entry into Australia. The British woman was flabbergasted that her visa was issued and then revoked without explanation.


However, Ramadani, a project manager in business development for Marks and Spencer, felt the only explanation for the rejection of her visa to Australia is her place of birth. Her family originally fled to Syria from Iraq in 1980 before seeking refuge in the UK in 1989 when she was four years old.

Perhaps Ramadani’s case is the clearest proof that just because you’re a British citizen and possess one of the world’s most powerful passport, it doesn’t mean you can freely fly to anywhere on the planet. She had applied for an eVisitor visa and thereafter was forced to provide much complicated information, unlike her friend, simply because she stated her birthplace as Syria.


But who can blame the Australian government when even a U.S. citizen – Syed Rizwan Farook – born in Chicago after his parents migrated from Pakistan, could be radicalized to abandon his 6-month-old daughter and together with his Pakistani wife, went on a shooting spree, killing 14 innocent Americans and seriously injured 22?

Talking about Farook, somehow his terrorism in California has caused more damage than the lost of 14 lives. Another British Muslim family was mysteriously barred from entry into the United States, preventing Mohammad Tariq Mahmood from taking his children on a much-anticipated trip to Disneyland. This British citizen claims he was targeted “because he was a Muslim”.


Initially, it was pointed out that Mohammad Tariq and his brother were travelling alone with 9 children while their wives were reportedly remained behind in London because one was allegedly sick. Now, new information emerges suggesting that one of the wives may have been in Pakistan, not sick, at the time of the trip.

There’s also another reason why Mohammad and his brother were flagged by U.S. Homeland Security, when both were cleared 6-weeks ago. Mohammad Tariq’s brother, apparently, had previously been barred from entry into Israel, and a Facebook account linked to the family’s home address was tied to pro-Taliban and al-Qaeda material.


After the Farook-Malik couple shooting in San Bernardino where the wife pledged allegiance to ISIS on her Facebook but didn’t get the U.S. Homeland Security’s attention, it seems social media has now been included as a source of U.S. security clearance. Amusingly, the Mahmood brothers blame Donald Trump.

There could be another reason though. Mohammad Tariq Mahmood and his brother have been revealed of planning to meet “relatives” in California. One of the relatives – Muhammad Mahmood – actually prayed at the same mosque as U.S.-born terrorist Syed Farook and his Pakistani born wife Tashfeen Malik.


Interestingly, the mosque – Tablighi Jamaat-run Dar Al Uloom Islamiyah mosque – is linked to “Army of Darkness” group Tablighi Jamaat. The mosque is so controversial that even one imam at a mosque in Corona, near San Bernardino, acknowledges that the mosque was indeed “dangerous” especially for those “unguided” Muslims who went there for the first time.

And just like an American political thriller television series “Homeland”, the imam of the Dar Al Uloom Al Islamiyah of America refused to be open during a press conference after the San Bernardino terrorist attacks, giving “No Comment” to most of the questions. So, if you couldn’t get clearance for a visit to any of the Western countries when you could previously, you must have done something that Homeland Security doesn’t like.
