If we are to defeat radical Islamic terrorism, the Middle East has to take the lead.

President’s Trump Mid-east trip and speech to Arab leaders marks a reset for American-Arab relations and should be seen as a call to action for westerners and Arab muslims alike to unite together in lockstep to combat the world’s most dangerous enemy and its ideology. Representing the two most victimized and targeted groups by our common enemy, it is vital to freedom across the world that we come together.
