Behind the flag of the sword and shahada (much like the ISIS flag), King Salman declared, “Islam is the religion mercy and tolerance and co-existence as confirmed by brilliant precedence. In its prosperous times Islam provided the best examples of co-existence and harmony among followers of religions and cultures. Good for Muslims, horrible for Muslim for non-believers who were forced to live under dhimmitude, jizya or subjugation of the unbelievers. No mention of the hundreds of millions slaughtered in jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements.

McMaster, wields influence over the President, and if his characterization of the President’s upcoming trip to the Middle East is to be believed, Trump is now set to repeat all the mistakes that his last two predecessors made in dealing with the global jihad threat.
