President Trump and King Salman Open “Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology” (Video)…

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump join President Fattah al-Sisi (Egypt) and Saudi King Salman to participate in the inauguration of The Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology.  [two videos below]  ‘Hearts and Memes’?

Essentially the center appears to be a Saudi data hub for monitoring multiple media and social media platforms, detecting extremist sentiments and countering the concerning rhetoric with positive social media messaging. In the U.S. we have the NSA cyber command monitoring system, a ‘big brother’ per se’.  The Saudi version appears to be a non military enterprise which might be considered ‘Big Allah’.

.

Given First Lady Melania’s interests in combating social media bullying, this Saudi enterprise and exhibit was likely interesting.

I cannot even fathom the level of conspiracy theory dust this Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology will kick up. {{cue the X-files soundtrack – CIA, gottabe}}

The optics alone are 21st century awesome.

          I with you on your no wool comment. Trust but verify. Long term the muslims know it is not the right time for violent Jihad. Wait until the infiltration is much further along, then it will be too late. This is the 1400 year long game, by the view of Islam skeptics. I trust Islam as far as I can throw sand.

          Israel does not like the arms deal as their usefulness as a Saudi muslim Dhimmi is greatly diminished. And the arms might include F35’s which seem to have done well against the S300 anti aircraft missiles. S400??

          Anyway, Trump has made an America First and Great move, and as always, no surprise there, he is way ahead of me. Perhaps Iran will be more interested in a better nuclear deal now that he has isolated them and is arming the Sunnis. ISIS is the small fish here, Mideast Nukes is the big fish, and this gambit may win that.

          Syria is not faring well either, at least at the moment. I wonder if Saudi Arabia got Syria as a concession in the deal?

          Trump is the man. DhimmiRats best get the best deal while there is still a deal to be made ahead of the Tax and Med bills that are in progress. Don’t F with Trump.

    We all know that Western Media Complex will instinctively convulse, as Sundance says, because of the aptly named Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology.

    This is what happens when true leaders are chosen and political correctness is abandoned. And thank God for that, including the Middle Eastern leaders being honest and willing to face the problem.

    On another note, there is talk that Ivanka is the ‘star’ of this tour for many Saudi men. I don’t want this to sound the wrong way because I really like Ivanka, but to me Melania possesses a worldliness and sophistication that Ivanka does not yet have. Or to put it another way, I would much rather share a dinner conversation with Melania than Ivanka at this stage of their lives.

    I like all the Trump women and am not trying to be petty or catty here. It’s more about my respect for Melania than any dismissive feelings towards Ivanka (whom I do really like, also).

        In fact, I cannot remember such respect for one of our sitting Presidents and the family, in our history. Trump’s limo was accompanied by flag bearers on horses. Toby Kieth was flown in to do a concert for the Trumps along with the number one Saudi entertainer. It was royalty showing the ultimate respect for American royalty.

        I see this as very positive and after 8-30 years of negativity and globalism, we have a new, common sense sheriff in town, showing me that he CAN and WILL govern this world.

        Oh yes, I have read some negative posts reminding us of the Saudi’s history, 9/11 and all of that, but maybe Trump can get all of that behind us and march us forward into a new future. Let’s support him and give him a chance to govern. Hey, it looks like we have a new-world-order shaping up, but it is far from the one that the Bushes, the Clintons, Obama and the EU imagined.

As for Ivanka, unless they were bleaching her hair when she was 8, the kid was blonde. Having this discussion about women who are simply fastidious about their grooming sound like typical, catty women-talk. To conclude, Melania has IT — Ivanka does not. Something does shine in FLOTUS that Ivanka lacks — is it philosophy based, perhaps?

    A distinction is often made between Islam and Islamism. Do
    you feel that it’s a valid distinction, and is a
    reformed Islam possible?

    MD: A thorough reading
    through the hadiths, sira and Koran led me to believe that
    reform in the sense of “improvement” is
    incredibly difficult. In medieval Christianity, reforming
    religion meant making it better by going back to its roots,
    back to the gospels. The problem is, if you reform Islam
    this way, you go back to Muhammad’s message and
    example, and what you get is Wahhabism and al
    Qaida. Reform through reshaping Islam under the
    influence of external ideas, derived from non-Islamic
    sources, is conceivable, but the trend of the past 100 years
    has been just about all in the other direction.

      Can a reform islam exist. A priori I would have to say yes. We do after all have reform Judaism. Although in my view a lot of reform Jews are not practicing Judaism, only paying lip service to it, and observing the major holydays. On the other hand, I can relate a couple of stories that make me think it will be difficult at best and I will not see it in my life time.
      I had a “friend” moslem by birth, living in America, her husband was a scholar working on campus. She was the mother of 2 children born here. We visited each other, had dinner and so on. I am Jewish, she of course knew it and had no problem with it as she and her husband were secular. Until 9/11 that is. After that we talked once, it was not pleasant, we never talked again.
      Second incident with another family from Iran. Secular people, business owners, well educated, children in public school. I used to have coffee rather regularly with the lady, until the day I said I agreed with P Trump ban on visas from the 7 countries.
      So if secular moslems cannot deal with reality, it’s going to be hard for the more religious ones, even if they are not extremists.

        The younger generation, college educated in the US, however, were very different. Day and night.

        There is a thin line between sanity, humanity, and mass insanity, inhumanity. Without a reformation of Islam’s ‘holy’ books, we stand right in between the two.

        Ever see a muslim mob tear a non muslim man to pieces? Ever think reason works? No where did Jesus lead an army to kill non Christians because they weren’t Christians. And he would never have said to lie for tactical reasons.

        Gives me the willies to think we are doing deals, yet Trump has that skill. But will the person that comes after him have that same understanding and skill, and after that person?

    I think some commentators – whose work I
    respect and admire – speak of “Islamism”
    because they don’t want to dignify the radical cause
    by calling it “Islam.” Also, if they name the
    problem as “Islam,” it would seem too
    overwhelming. Nevertheless, I agree with Ayaan Hirsi Ali,
    Wafa Sultan and other ex-Muslims that the problem of radical
    Islam is the problem of Islam itself. The will to dominate
    is hard-wired into the core texts of Islam, and this cannot
    be excised from the heart of these texts without a traumatic
    assault on the fundamentals of Islam. So I don’t like
    to speak about “Islamism.” To me it feels like a
    cop-out.

    Often I meet people who want to be informed about
    Islam but will let their minds grasp the problem only if the
    solution is clear. This is hopeless. You must first live
    with the problem, even for a long time, before solutions
    will come. But I am convinced we will find solutions
    to the challenge of Islam. That is why I wrote The
    Third Choice – out of conviction that facing
    the truth will bring liberty.

      Islam IS the problem, as are those who subscribe to its perverted practice. There is NO NEED to insert the words “Radical” or “Extremist” when discussing ISLAMIC TERRORISM. Their nasty, hate-filled excuse for a “Holy Book” is pretty clear about the fate they wish for (and will be happy to administer to) EVERY person who doesn’t kneel before them. No one who claims to be a member of this vile cult will EVER be welcome in my home.

      Astute, well-informed reply in your first paragraph. I think you’re absolutely right re: Islam and Islamism, but conflating the two means people have to criticize Islam as a whole, and many think that sounds bigoted. However, they differ only in being at a bit different points along the same scale. I highly recommend reading virtually anything written by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. It would be an eye-opener for a lot of people.

      It would seem an impossible situation for Muslims who are taught and believe what the Quran teaches. But most so-called secular Muslims are still Muslims at heart — as mireilleg’s personal experience above attests.

It’s been going on for 1500 years, that’s all that can be expected. And if our country can reap some monetary/business benefits in all this, fabulous.

IMO, the only things exported from the ME are oil and terrorism and few would care about what happens theee if it weren’t for the petroleum-dollars they have amassed.

      rsanchez1990,
      Trump is ‘the man’ and did what he said he would do. And as a bank shot has set up Iran for a renegotiated nuclear deal. Beyond awesome. I think the Saudis are truly blown away by Trump and family.

      I would never have advised Trump to make this trip, but giving advice to Trump is folly, as he is far smarter than anyone I know. It is a joke to predict what he will be able to succeed at, and as Sissi said (I believe it was Sissi who said this), ‘Trump can do the impossible.’

      Maybe Trump can.

    I wonder what Comey, Brennan, Clapper and the Boys think about this Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology? Here we are in the U.S. with the most enhanced surveillance in the World and we do not have one stick of evidence to support the Trump/Russian narrative after a year of nothingness and Congressional BS hearings. Only a complete FAKE NEWS narrative.

    Contrast this to PDJT’s team working with the Saudi’s on this event dedication. I heard Ivanka say this building was put up in something like 30 days and it looks like something out of a Sci-Fi movie in the year 2117…the explanation of the facility by the Saudi man was an interesting story of their setup for this facility.

    There we have it….U.S. Intelligence firing up nothing burgers to inflict harm on an honest President and PDJT in Saudi Arabia with the King; positioning the Saudi’s as the keeper to the keys of the Mid East Castle for counter-terrorism intelligence.

    In one case, wasted energy….in another what a display of human know-how and resources.

      The Arabs long before Islam had a very high civilization, inventing certain math concepts, practicing astronomy, etc. They should be able to reconcile the problem interpretations of their scriptures – not to outright deny them, but to place them in context. There are plenty of people in my world (Catholics, Puritans, ultra-conservative Christians) who just won’t accept any compromise of what they believe scripture tells them, so I can understand that there will be many Muslims who take their scriptures literally in the worst way. I just don’t think it has to be that way. Once you demonstrate the futility of 100 percent literalism in studying scriptures to people, I think they can look for a deeper meaning rather than focusing on having to deliver severe physical punishment to anyone who looks crosseyed at them.

    • Your comment means a lot to me, as I have been very skeptical of ever trusting the Arabs with anything, but this entire concept of enemies coming together to defeat a greater enemy is thought-provoking.

      Islam threatens the entire world with its jihad, deliberately, and probably forever in some circles of their faith. But it is possible that some of these Muslims want to be able to live decent lives within the parameters of the less dangerous aspects of their religion. I can accept that. Many Muslims however cannot, and would rather kill all the moderate Muslims along with the infidels. I believe it is that intransigence for jihad that has led the Saudis to launch this anti-terror program… that is, if it is an honest effort and not a scheme to put us off guard.

      If this were a scheme to put us off-guard, it would hardly work. We would verify, we will spy on them to confirm their honesty or betrayal, and it will become known in the near future.

      The trouble with Islam is that once a nation tells all other nations to bow down or die, the natural, the only sane response is to annialate the nation that threatens the others.

      I now see no problem with Trump leading this action as long as our eyes and ears are wide open, and our arsenals are ready to melt the Mid East to glass if we learn of perfidy on their part.

    This ME trip and the Riyadh Summit will certainly prove all the naysayers wrong when it comes to PDJT being able to handle the politics of the job! That said I agree with many posters that Islam itself is a big problem and it is hard to distinguish radical from ‘moderate’ when the so called prophet mohammed teaches so much hate and evil. But what is our leader to do? You can’t publicly condemn an entire religion that encompasses so many millions of people. So he can only condemn the terrorists and get the ME countries to agree that the terrorists must be destroyed and at the same time make the deals that helps MAGA. Meanwhile it is up to US to stay vigilant, FORCE our elected reps to support our president and his agenda on curbing immigration and having strong borders! If we as a country outright condemn Islam we will lose the war without any battles! I know many think that is the way we should go but it would be a lose/lose and our great President does not roll that way and neither should we.

    The simple black look was decorated with a chunky, chain-link necklace and statement metallic python waist belt from Saint Laurent. Saudi women already began posting images of themselves wearing “Melania-style” abayas.” Link below:
