UAE: Dubai’s (Muslim) Head of Security supports Trump’s temporary ban on Muslim travel and immigration to the U.S.

In a series of tweets, Dubai’s Head of General Security, Dhahi Khalfan (below) this morning expressed his support for President Trump’s “Muslim ban.” 

al-Bawaba  Trump has said that the ban is intended to “protect the United States from foreign nationals entering from countries compromised by terrorism” and allow time to implement “a more rigorous vetting process.” America’s ban on immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries may be stirring anger across the West, but in the Arab world the move has received some more surprising responses.

For example:

We completely support Trump in his ban on entry to those who may cause a breach in America’s security.

Every country has the right to protect its security from anyone who could be dangerous for the safety of its people.

Previous US administrations have embraced all the wanted men of the Arab world and those classified as terrorists… Trump what you’re doing is right.
