Mother Jones reports Donald Trump’s response to the recent New York, New Jersey Bombings, and the miracle cure is racial profiling on a mass scale. Trump says, “You know, in Israel they profile. They’ve done an unbelievable job, as good as you can do.”
I took a closer look at Donald Trump’s claim that Israel does a job “as good as you can do.”
The Jewish Virtual Library posts a comprehensive listing of fatalities linked to terrorism against Israel. So far in 2016, there have been ten listings that added up to 14 dead.
In 2015 there were twenty-two listings for 35 dead.
In 2014 there were 15 listings for 39 dead.
The list goes back to 1993. For Israel to be “as good as can you can do”, then the death toll from terrorism in Israel has to be lower than the U.S. death toll from terrorism on U.S. soil.
I found this list from wnd.com for Muslim terror attacks in the U.S. since 911.
In 2015, there were two listings in the U.S. One was in Garland, Texas where the two terrorists were shot and killed by a security guard, who was wounded. No one else died but the two terrorists.
The other incident in 2015 killed four U.S. Marines who were shot dead by a lone Islamic gunman. There were five totals deaths in 2015 in the United States to acts of alleged Isliam terrorism and one of the five was the gunman.
Therefore in 2015, four Americans died at the hands of alleged Islamic terrorists on U.S. soil compared to 35 Israelis killed in Israel where Trump says racial profiling does “an unbelievable job, as good as you can do.”
What about 2014? In 2014, wnd.com listed three incidents in the U.S. with four deaths versus 39 killed in Israel.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t think Israel’s methods to prevent terrorist attacks are “as good as you can do”.
A vote for Trump is a vote for a manipulating, psycho, narcissistic, bully, and serial liar. Discover more about the real Donald Trump here: Will the Real Donald Trump Please Stand and Keep His Mouth Shut.
