Trump on Islam:

Asked on Morning Joe if he believed Islam was an inherently violent religion, Donald Trump refused to answer the question directly, but said, "There's something nasty coming out of there."

MSNBC political analyst John Heilemann asked Trump, who called onto Morning Joe Monday via telephone, whether Islam was "an inherently peaceful religion ... that’s been perverted by some" or a "an inherently violent religion.”

Trump said he didn't "know that that question can be answered."

"It could be answered two ways. It could be answered both ways. But there’s something going on there," Trump said. "There’s a lot of hatred coming out of at least a big part of it. You see the hatred. We see it every day. You see it, whether it’s in Paris, or whether it’s the World Trade Center ..."

1. He's starting to hedge his answers because of the recent drop. With Rove now on point, that

should get worse.

3. Maybe hedging his answers

Is causing the drop

I for one am tired of political correctness and saw Trump as a breath of fresh air

Republicans need to stop apologizing because we are right, not the Democrats

5. Maybe, but timewise I don't think so. However, I'm not sure the drop is bad. I don't

want fence-sitters staying on until the last moment and then have a bunch of oligarch cash appear from nowhere. The drop was only ten points not 23 like others are saying. If Trump is pushed out by the Republicans with all the new Dem voters coming in from everywhere, it will END the Republican Party. These oligarchs better decide how much they really hate Trump. I think Adelson can be turned toward Trump but I don't know what that deal will entail.

2. Weasel words.

Why doesn't he just come right and say what he thinks instead of weaseling around like a punk and dancing around the question?

I thought he was a balsy, non-PC, truth teller. Turns out, nope, just another mealy mouthed politician.He really quailed on this one.

4. He needs to go back to being himself

Somebody is telling him to tone it down

By the way, where is Hillary lately?

I just read she made Bill get HIV tested

6. Down through the centuries, jihad has not stopped in its quest to conquer the world for islam

After Islam conquered North Africa and spread Islam there, they came into Spain and colonized it for centuries. In North Africa they subjugated the natives peoples, the Berbers and Kabyles. The Kabyles continue to be colonized and suppressed by the Arabic speaking population in Algeria, being deprived of jobs and education and even prevented from using their non-Arabic native language. Jihadists tried doing the same in the rest of Europe and ran into Charles Martel. After being defeated, they tried coming into France by sea and also got beaten back. Islam went in the other direction too, through southeast Asia. The Ottoman Empire colonized major portions of eastern Europe and waged constant war, laying siege to Vienna and forcing Islam on the people. They set up a string of Caliphates across North Africa whose mission it was to hijack European shipping on the high seas, confiscate the merchandise, murder the crews, and send the women and children into slavery. Thomas Jefferson had a run in with them at Tripoli. In the several centuries of operations by the Barbary Pirate caliphates, it's estimated that over one million Europeans were killed. They attacked as far north as Ireland, Scotland, and even Iceland (google the sack of Baltimore, Ireland). In the supposedly peaceful republic of Indonesia there has been plenty of violence. In the late 1990s, mobs of enraged Indonesians attacked Chinese neighborhoods, killing an estimated 1,000 people and raping an estimated 150 Chinese women. As an immigration lawyer, I represented a Chinese client from Jakarta seeking political asylum whose entire family was dragged into the street by a mob shouting Allah Akhbar as all their possessions were looted and their lives endangered. And of course Roman Catholic Portuguese East Timor was invaded and conquered by Muslim Indonesian troops in the 1970s and there was widespread massacre. With their policy of encirclement and annihilation tactics to conquer the villages and towns of East Timor, it's estimated that more than one-third of the population was killed.
