Letter to the Editor: Time to Act Against Islamic Terrorists Is Now

Friday night, there were several coordinated attacks by ISIS in Paris. At least 150 people were slaughtered by guns,vbombs and grenades. It was a bloodbath.

Unfortunately, given the mass migration of thousands of Muslims into Europe, why is this a surprise?

An ISIS operative revealed to BuzzFeed that “there were 4,000 trained ISIS fighters in Europe and that they entered through the refugee ranks pouring into Europe by the thousands daily.”

It is time for the world and the United States to face reality. We are under siege by Islamic jihadists. They want to kill us.

In America, we need to close our borders, stop the flow of illegal aliens and Muslim refugees, and let Americans be armed. U.S. citizens have the constitutional right to protect themselves. The time has come — for President Barack Obama, our politicians and the media — to do what is best for America. If they fail to do so, they should be fired.

I believe that national security and immigration are the two most important issues facing America today. I  believe Donald Trump understands this and will put America first. These are dangerous times, and we need tough, strong leaders if we are to survive as a free, democratic nation.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
