"Religious and ethnic minorities"? Oh...you mean Christians and to heck with everyone else? This proposal is disgusting on so many levels. Guess who suffers the most at the hands of Daesh (I will not call them any other name and give them the legitimacy that they so crave)? MUSLIMS who happen to be the majority. This blatant attempt at religious discrimination will do nothing more than *help* the terrorist group by fitting perfectly into their propaganda. Do you know how they recruit? By telling young men that everyone hates them, that America and the rest of the world loath them, that nobody else cares about, that they would be eradicated if the world got its way. Nobody loves you except for Daesh. Saying it is for Islam is just a way to give moral legitimacy to their poison. By excluding assistance for Muslims you play right into their hand and make the situation worse. Do you know how to stop the spread of terrorism? Kindness....pure and unadulterated kindness without strings. If we are going to help the victims of terrorism, and victims of Daesh in particular (and I wholeheartedly believe we should), then it must be ALL of them, Christian, Jew, Muslim, Hindu, atheist.....ALL of them.
