Depending on how you look at Trump’s Muslim Ban, there are much badder guys on the block than refugees from his big bad seven. Somalia, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan and Yemen might include two thirds of Bush's former axis of evil, and were already deemed suspect enough by Obama, but we would wager that a lot of the international incidents of late have involved nefarious nationals further afield the Muslim heartlands.

Those Muslim majority countries that didn't make the cut could be forgiven for feeling rather spurned or insulted. Consider Lebanon's (Party of God) loonies, Chechnya's criminal crazies and Saudi's suspect salafis.  The Jihadi threat does not contain itself to Trump's seven banned favorites, but indeed has reared its ugly head more often off the list than on! 

But here’s an alternative list of countries that maybe should have made it onto Trump’s notorious list - thanks to state-sponsored extremism, homegrown terror, a track record of jihadi tendencies abroad, or post-"Arab Spring" chaos. These countries are all either Muslim-majority or have enough of a Muslim population to qualify as a threat to the US population, who are otherwise safe and waiting on the next friendly-fire gun shooting at home, from home. 

Check out these bad hombres that got away Scott free in this round of Muslim banned countries!

All in good fun, of course, by Muslim or Muslimish-majority hands!

The heart of Islam! Most of the 9/11 attackers were Saudi, and the KSA remains an aggressor in the war on Yemen. Historically, Saudi seems content to court fanaticism, only walking back its extremist tendencies when attackers hit their own soil. With the number of beheadings they carry out each year, we understand if you confuse them with Daesh!

Israel - State-sponsored extremism, open ethnic discrimination - enough said. The IDF maintains a “shoot first, ask later” policy when it comes to stopping alleged Palestinian attackers, and in 2015 Jewish extremists torched a West Bank home, killing a family including an 18-month-old baby.

What Kuwait lacks in size, they make up for in wealth and arrogance. With reports of issuing their own Trump-like Muslim ban, perhaps this warrants a little reciprocal action? Kuwait, however, has come out denying such a ban is in place.

The Caucus states produce an alarming number of extremist militants. Omar al-Shishani, one of Daesh’s most notorious fighters in Syria, was an ethnic Chechen who hailed from Georgia and previously fought against the Russians. The Boston bombings were committed by a pair of Chechen brothers - so a track record of terror on American soil no less.

Lebanon - home to Hezbollah, one of the world’s most hated “terrorist organizations” that routinely holds the country’s political process hostage - and occasionally even shuts down the Beirut airport - it’s seen largely as an extension of Iran’s incursion into Arab countries. It would made Bush's cut as one of the axis of evil states.

Security has been shaky since Tunisia’s 2011 upheaval, and homegrown extremism scared off tourists after a seaside resort was bombed, killing 38, mostly foreigners. European terror incidents of late have been traceable to Tunisian terrain.

While Trump is at it, he might as well set up border checks around Michigan, since those guys are all Arab anyway! The Detroit metro area is home to a large Lebanese and Syrian immigrant community that dates back almost 100 years.
