Newt Gingrich Wants Tests for All U.S. Muslims After Nice Attack

“Every person here who is of a Muslim background” should be tested to determine whether he or she believes in Shariah, a legal code based on the Quran and other Islamic scriptures.

If they do, he said, they should be deported — even if they’re U.S. citizens. Gingrich added that anyone who simply visits any website “favoring ISIS or al Qaeda or other terrorist groups” should be guilty of a felony, “and they should go to jail.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations condemned Gingrich’s call to “test” Muslims in the U.S. as well as the truck attack.

He’s right, and the fact that CAIR is protesting reinforces it.

  • Good idea.

    It is a good idea and while many murderous muslims are already here it would maker an excellent barring question for new immigrants. enforce with immediate deportation if they lie to gain admission. this has already been used.

    …per year
    “Their strategy is to “seed your communities” with at least 70,000
    refugees a year, including Iraqis, Burmese, Bhutanese, Somalis, Cubans,
    Syrians and others. And the numbers of Syrians, mostly Muslim, will
    surpass them all.”

    “La Raza (translated to “The Race”) and the American Immigration Lawyers
    Association have been playing a central and influential role in
    rewriting the administration’s immigration policies”

    It is a pathetic idea which doesn’t recognize the doctrines of kitman (where you can delude yourself and I will not correct you) and taqqiya (where I can deceive you for the defense of myself or the Islamic faith) present in Islam. In short, Muslims are allowed to lie with impunity to preserve themselves, their livelihoods or the faith so asking them a question is almost pointless unless you are trained to look for the cues of lying and most people are not.

    Let’s face it. The West is not prepared to deal with Islam and putting up an interview process won’t make a whole lot of difference.

      If they say they support sharia, deport them,
      and if they say they don’t support sharia but say they are muslim, deport them for lying to a government official.

  • Flyboy

    Newt is missing the fact that Sharia’h accommodates the transition from peace loving hypocrite to war making jihadist in line with Mohammad’s life journey. Islam is progressive in nature and proceeds from milestone to milestone. Those who begin the journey are just as problematic as those who have travelled to its end game.

  • Spatchcocked

    Of course they should be forbidden entry to the west…..why increase the workload you have already winnowing out the sheep from the goats.
    Then legislation in place to deport any Muslims who violate USA law re even a hint of disloyalty….and any in prison should be segregated apart from the general pop. But also from their fellow Muslims…..and start clobbering American born wannabe jihadis.
    Start going legislatively Roman on these enemies of the west.
    It’s the only thing that will work and the only thing THEY understand.

  • DVult

    Good idea. Who cares if CAIR complains? They would be the first ones expelled from the country under this plan.

  • BillyHW

    No tests, just deport them all.

  • Oracle9

    Ask on a questionnaire. Yeah, that oughtta pretty much solve the problem.

  • Spatchcocked

    What a naive comment Newt……you just ask them and they tell you if they believe in sharia or not?
    Newt thinks the “people” are stupid.

  • Spatchcocked

    Facta non verba…..

  • Solo712

    I would not say all Muslims, but those organized politically or those belonging to fundamentalist mosques (especially the imams) should be tested and monitored. Let’s restart the Committee for Un-american Activities. Forget Mc Carthy; it was started under F.D.R.

  • Pavelina

    Good as far as he goes. But what about the all the exhortations to violence in the Koran and the examples of Mohammed’s behavior in the Hadith? Those are what the ISIS are following. We could define Political Islam then outlaw it, but it still won’t stop the attacks because they don’t care about our laws.
