Obviously, the recently partially apparently walked-back endorsement by a US Presidential candidate of the idea of making all Muslims register is truly obscene in the light of what such a requirement led to in the Holocaust.
The answer to such demagoguery is simple, and I wonder who will be the first to utter it.
“If that is required, I will be the first to register, and I wold will urge everyone in this country to join with me as registering as a Muslim.”
There is precedent in the Danes’ response to Hitler’s order that all Jews wear stars.
Let’ see if any of the current crop of candidates can rise fully to this challenge. In my opinion, any of them who fails to do so is not fit to be President.
Maybe we should start an online project — “Registermefirst.net.”
