Appearing as a guest on Fox News on Friday afternoon Muslim scholar Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser said that nationalism is the only solution in fighting against global Islamism.
Partial transcript from Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser’s appearance on Fox News:
“The West needs to stand up for the universal declaration of human rights. The nationalism is the only solution, patriotism to our beliefs and our values is the only solution against global Islamism & global jihadism. The reason so many Muslims are being radicalized in Germany, Belgium, America, and the U.K. is because we’ve lost the hold of what it means to be British and American or German.”

According to his own website: M. Zuhdi Jasser, M.D. is the Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) and is the author of A Battle for the Soul of Islam: An American Muslim Patriot’s Fight to Save His Faith(Simon & Schuster, June 2012). On March 20, 2012, Dr. Jasser was appointed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) where he currently serves as a Commissioner.
A devout Muslim, Dr. Jasser founded AIFD in the wake of the 9/11 attacks on the United States as an effort to provide an American Muslim voice advocating for the preservation of the founding principles of the United States Constitution, liberty and freedom, through the separation of mosque and state. Dr. Jasser is a first generation American Muslim whose parents fled the oppressive Baath regime of Syria in the mid-1960’s for American freedom. He is leading the fight to shake the hold that the Muslim Brotherhood and their network of American Islamist organizations and mosques seek to exert on organized Islam in America.
The fact that a Muslim is standing up and saying that Nationalism is the only solution against against global Islamism should speak volumes about the importance of Donald Trump’s Presidency.
