IUMS condemns the ban entry of nationals of several Muslim countries to America, for it is discrimination because of religion, having devastating effects on peaceful coexistence.



IUMS received the decision of the new US president (Trump) to ban entry of nationals of seven Muslim countries to the United States, they are citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, in more surprise and astonishment to the conditions we reached that is objectionable to the international laws, and the US Constitution itself. Since the executive decision stops for a period of 120 days to work the federal program to host and resettlement of the refugees who come from countries experiencing wars, whatever the nationality of these refugees. Humanitarian program which was introduced in 1980, and did not freeze to work with only once for a period of three months after the attacks of September 11, 2001.


At a time when the world has seen a strong condemnation of such a decision, including the majority of the American people themselves, we in the IUMS condemn such a decision, which enters the privilege of racial discrimination, and we emphasize the following:

1. This decision really helps extremist and radical ideas and increases the fire of terrorism inflamed.

2. This decision helps to establish hate speech, helping extremist groups to spread the idea that the United States in a war against Islam and its countries.

3. This decision will increase the hatred between the United States and Muslim countries in general, which threaten the American interests itself.

4. The civilized world is today in dire need of calm, and treat the extremist thought with moderate thought, nothing quenches the fire of violence and extremism, except cold and moderation, and therefore this decision flies in the face of this trend perfectly.

5. The United States should wonder that such a decision inflames the conflict zones in the world, especially the Middle East, which threaten the United States itself.

6. The need for a review of the US administration's decision to the ban, which is bad for the US relationship with Islamic countries, which represent the threat to world peace.


Based on the above, we call on the Islamic world's countries and peoples, organizations and institutions working in it, and the free world and civil organizations, and human rights organizations in its whole parties, to stand against this decision, and to support those who stood against him, and to continue this support until forcing the US administration to undo it at the earliest opportunity.


It is understood that the world today has become like a single village, so no one has the right to play with the laws and rights as he pleases; because its negative effects return on the whole of humanity, and Allah Almighty said, indicating a Sunnah of His general Sunan to the Muslims and others (and fear the Fitnah (affliction and trial) which affects not in particular those of you who do wrong) {Anfal: 25}. Social scientists said that injustice, racism, tyranny, marking the devastation and destruction and perdition.
