Mr Donald Trump, the republican hopeful in the American Presidential race, has called for a complete ‘shutdown’ on Muslims’ entry to America. Given that technologists are yet to invent a faith-detecting machine, telling Muslims from the Non-Muslims could be a challenging task.
But fortunately, for Trump there is inspiration in Daesh (ISIS). It seems to have a mechanism for distinguishing ‘other’ from the ‘own’. Once he learns that art, all Mr Trump would need to do is reverse the categories (and stop short of bombing).
Baghdadi, for his part, might have something to learn from Trump; not least, the art of being Donald Trump in an otherwise modern society.
