This is What a Leader Looks like

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   5 comments

I saw this photo of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden wearing a hijab, shared by Shaun King on Instagram. King added the comment,

Over the past 72 hours the world has witnessed what a real leader looks like in New Zealand's Prime Minister @jacindaardern. Today she mourned at a vigil in a full hijab and promised that the nation would not just cover the costs of 51 funerals, but would look after the families and their expenses for as long as it took. This after announcing they would ban assault rifles. Listen - real leaders do exist. And you learn who they are under pressure, in turmoil.

Seeing her making such a compassionate, empathetic act gave me chills. We saw Trump's response. And the US right wing would vilify any president who did it. It is disgusting that we all know a woman president would be attacked and smeared in the US if she showed such compassion.

I don't think most of the candidates running would have the guts to do it. I can only think of one-- Tulsi Gabbard.

What I've learned from my observations of postings on Trump channels, from conversations with my friends who are Zionists and comments on Zionist websites, like is that almost all of them hate Muslims. They are bigoted and intolerant and make up horrific lies about them, like saying that all Muslims want to impose Sharia law on America.

There are over 70 million Christian Zionists in the US, so this is a massive problem.
