——————————————————————————–

The Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis denounces and is dismayed by the Supreme Court decision to uphold Donald Trump’s travel ban on Muslim majority countries.  This is a dark day in US history when people are being discriminated based on their faith. Justice Sotomayor stated in her dissenting opinion, “The United States of America is a nation built upon the promise of religious liberty. Our founders honored that core promise by embedding the principle of religious neutrality in the First Amendment.”

The White House is claiming this is for national security; to majority of the world it is viewed as discriminatory and intolerance towards one of the major Abrahamic faiths. The Supreme Court’s decision starkly reminds the dark chapter in our history of Korematsu v. United States in 1944, justifying internment of Japanese Americans in the name of national security.  Our Supreme Court has taken steps backwards on a path of inclusivity devised by our forefathers and cherished by rest of the world as exemplary.

Banning people from these countries will have very little effect on “national security”; there is no data to prove that visitors/ immigrants from these Muslim majority countries were involved in terrorist activities on our soil. According to Justice Sotomayor this case was “inexplicable by anything but animus”.

Terrorism is a global issue and the best way to fight is with multinational collaboration. When we start singling out faiths, countries and ethnicities, we will lose partners in this fight. We are seen as intolerant and bigoted society.

Islamic Foundation appreciates many voices of support from different faith groups and organizations. We stand together to fight the surge in  intolerance in our country over the last 2 years, fomented by the leaders and leading to many hate crimes against Muslims, Jewish Community, African Americans, Latinos and many other minorities. We stand together to protect diverse communities and defend the constitutional rights. Prejudice, intolerance and inequitable treatment of human beings is against our constitution and moral values.
