One of the Republican Party’s most-prominent figures blamed the Nice terror attack on gutless Western elites and called for the deportation of every Muslim in the U.S. who supports shariah law. Newt Gingrich: Deport all Muslims who support shariah law
In an interview Thursday night on Fox News’ Channel’s “Hannity” show, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich called for the monitoring of mosques and said America’s ruling class is too afraid to do this.
“This is the fault of Western elites who lack the guts to do what is right, to do what is necessary,” he said. “We better rethink the rules, or we’re going to lose the war.”
“You have to monitor the mosques,” Mr. Gingrich said. “Where do you think the primary source of recruitment is? We should … test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in shariah, they should be deported.”
