On Sunday, May 21, 2017, Donald Trump bet his presidency — and perhaps the future national security of the U.S. — on what bookies would have to call a longshot. The prospect that Sunni Muslim nations, led by Saudi Arabia, will help root out and defeat Shariah-supremacism.

The president called on them to "drive out" "Islamic extremists" whose "ideology" teaches them to kill and dominate. His audience understood that ideology is Shariah, though, and that they would risk death as apostates for opposing it.

President Trump, nonetheless, established a test. Join in removing extremists from their mosques communities, holy land, and out of the earth — or else. It follows that the Saudis, Turks, and others must do the same in the mosques and communities they have established here, as well.

If President Trump’s bet doesn’t work out, he must not hesitate to hold Muslim leaders accountable.
