When Teddy Roosevelt Banned Muslims from America
A hundred years ago, Muslims were furious over an immigration bill whose origins lay with advocacy by a headstrong and loudmouthed Republican in the White House.
The anti-immigration bill offended the Ottoman Empire, the rotting Caliphate of Islam soon to be defeated at the hands of America and the West, by banning the entry of "all polygamists, or persons who admit their belief in the practice of polygamy."
This, as was pointed out at the time, would prohibit the entry of the "entire Mohammedan world" into the United States.
And indeed it would.
