SHAFAQNA – Reactions to the shooting of five military personnel in Chattanooga, Tennessee included Gen. Wesley Clark, a Democrat interviewed on MSNBC in the shootingâ€™s aftermath,he said the U.S. needed to increasingly get tough on â€œradicalizedâ€ individuals. He spoke favorably of the internment camps set up during World War II, saying that â€œif someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didnâ€™t say that was freedom of speech. We put him in a camp.â€ Lest there be any doubt what Clark was advocating, he insisted that for radicalized Muslims, â€œitâ€™s our right and obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict.â€
Franklin Graham, a son of pastor Billy Graham and a popular figure among Christian conservatives in his own right, also proposed to treat Muslims the way the U.S. treated German- and Japanese-Americans during World War II. But Graham went even further than Clark, who wished to target only those deemed radical. For Graham, Muslims writ large are the problem, and he announced that the U.S. should suspend all immigration to the country by Muslims, period.
â€œEvery Muslim that comes into this country has the potential to be radicalized, and they do their killing to honor their religion and Muhammad,â€Â Graham said.
