Monitors in Kenya for
Monitors in Kenya for the first time were being asked if they thought the Muslim ban on women from Muslim countries could be implemented in the US-like way that they thought they could be able to. “We feel it makes us think of Somalia and the Middle East, but it also creates real opportunities for people to be educated about Islam and other faiths and to develop our own. At the same time, we see this as promoting an agenda of nationalism, of hate, of xenophobia, of Islamophobia.”

But many other observers in the Muslim-majority community were critical. “It may take some time to understand that Muslim citizens of all religions have different lives – they do not have the same access to the education and opportunities it allows for all Muslims and everyone else, but it is a fact,” they said. “If we don’t understand why the ban is in the US, the US may not even come in to make a change. It is not a huge burden on the local Muslims.”
