What do you call a group of Muslim leaders who deport 40,000 Muslims from a Muslim majority nation… “Islamaphobic”? Will the same press that dogged President Trump for weeks after he placed a temporary travel ban on refugees coming from 7 muslim majority nations (chosen by Barack Obama and his DHS), chase around the leaders of Saudi Arabia demanding they answer to claims of “Islamaphobia,” or is that term only reserved for Republican Presidents who want to keep their citizens safe?

Saudi Arabia has deported a staggering 40,000 Pakistani migrant workers in the span of just four months, citing terrorism concerns.

The Saudi Gazette reported last week that “a number of Pakistanis were held in the crimes of drug trafficking, thefts, forgery and physical assault.” Authorities feared that some of the migrant workers were linked with ISIS, or as the Saudis call the terror group, Daesh. Other migrants were deported due to expired residency and work permits.

“Against this backdrop, Abdullah Al-Sadoun, chairman of the security committee of the Shoura Council, called for thoroughly scrutinizing the Pakistanis before they are recruited for work in the Kingdom,” added the Gazette. “He asked for more closer coordination with the concerned authorities in Pakistan to thoroughly check those coming to work in the Kingdom due to the involvement of a number of Pakistanis in security issues.”

While the Kingdom has long exported the jihadist ideological cancer of Wahhabism to mosques and Islamic centers across the West, it has prided itself in its effort to rid the homeland of terrorists threatening to undermine the stability and sovereignty of the monarchy.

Counter-terrorism raids are not uncommon in Saudi Arabia. In fact, counter-terrorism agents recently arrested 15 Pakistanis in the Al-Harazat and Al-Naseem districts of Jeddah on terrorism-related charges.

 

This all begs the question: Is Saudi Arabia Islamophobic? Well, if you’re claiming that President Trump’s falsely identified “Muslim ban” (recently rendered unconstitutional by a federal appellate court) is Islamphobic because of the fact that it places a temporary freeze on the acceptance of incoming refugees from just seven (out of dozens) of the high-risk Muslim-majority countries in the world, then surely Saudi Arabia’s mass deportation of tens of thousands of Muslims due to terrorism concerns should ring some alarm bells. – Daily Wire
