President Donald Trump’s speech today in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, before some 50 Arab and Muslim world leaders sent a clear message to Arab nations that they need to join the fight against Islamic terrorism.
In seeking a partnership with Muslim nations to combat terror in the name of Islam, Trump delivered his most measured words on the Islamic faith noting: “This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects or different civilizations.” Instead, he made it a more universal contrast: “This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people, all in the name of religion—people that want to protect life and want to protect their religion. This is a battle between good and evil.”
We also commend Trump for challenging the Arab world to unite in confronting Iran—the largest state sponsor of global terror.
