President Trump recently made an aggressive stand against terrorism as he called upon Muslim countries in the Middle East to aid in the war against terror.

While on his first trip overseas, Trump delivered a speech in front of Saudi officials, urging them to join in the fight against “Islamic extremism”.

And during the speech, Trump made a very pointed threat to terrorists.

The Daily Caller reported:

“Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: Barbarism will deliver you no glory – piety to evil will bring you no dignity.  If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be condemned,” the speech says.

Trump continued in his speech to lecture the foreign countries on the merits of protecting their own people from terrorist attacks – a defense clearly lacking considering the sheer number of attacks daily.

President Trump continued:

Muslim countries must “honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires. And it means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews, and the slaughter of Christians.”

And while tensions between the United States and Middle East have never been calm to say the least, Trump seems confident in his ability to band the East and West together with one common goal: Protect innocent lives.

The Daily Caller reported:

“Our goal is a coalition of nations who share the aim of stamping out extremism and providing our children a hopeful future that does honor to God,” Trump [said] according to speech excerpts. He [continued ], “we can only overcome this evil if the forces of good are united and strong – and if everyone in this room does their fair share and fulfills their part of the burden.”

The most important goal of the meeting in Saudi Arabia was for Trump to gain the support of approximately 50 countries that would join his proposed coalition to fight terror.

And while support from the Middle East is still questionable, one thing is certain – support for Trump has never been higher on the home front.

One group in particular praised the efforts of the President.

Breitbart News reported:

The Algemeiner reports:  A leading American Jewish advocacy organization praised Donald Trump’s speech to Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, saying the president had demonstrated “refreshing honesty…in describing the Islamist extremist threat that developed in the Middle East years ago.”

“We agree that the fight against Islamist extremism is a battle between the forces of good and decency, on the one hand, and evil and a death cult, on the other, and that victory depends, above all, on what Arab and Muslim nations do to counter and defeat this violent, deadly scourge,” said David Harris, CEO of the American Jewish Committee (AJC), in a statement.
