Newt Gingrich’s Plan: Interrogate Every Muslim In America

Many politicians are publicly responding to the latest terrorist attacks in Nice, France. Newt Gin1grich is taking the opportunity to throw one last Hail Mary to be Trump’s running mate. Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has suggested testing all US Muslims to see if they believe in Sharia, and deporting those who do.

Sharia is Islamic religious law based on the Koran, the life of Muhammad and the rulings of Islamic scholars.

Mr Gingrich's comments follow an attack in the French city of Nice, which has killed at least 84 people.

His comments echo the sentiments of Donald Trump, who has said Muslims should be banned from entering the US.

"Western civilisation is in a war. We should frankly test every person here who is of a Muslim background and if they believe in Sharia they should be deported," Mr Gingrich told Fox News.

"Sharia is incompatible with western civilisation. Modern Muslims who have given up Sharia, glad to have them as citizens. Perfectly happy to have them next door," he added.”*

      +You Lie You refuse to look at the facts. Until you read the facts and
      paint a full picture of what Islam’s role is in the western world you can’t
      make a reasonable assessment. I’ve spent the last two years studying this
      in depth. Islamic values are not compatible with western civilization. We
      need to temp ban, while our national security agencies develop a viable
      immigration system for Muslims. Do you not want to keep terrorists out?

      +Georg Hieronymus What college were you studying this at? Who funded your
      research and who did you interview? May I see the interviews and source
      materials that support your conclusions? I mean, since you did all this
      research. It would be really easy to just tell me who the books were
      written by and the names of the people you studied. What exactly did you
      study, you didnt mention the exact subject of your studies. Was it “islamic
      values” you studied or “muslims”? I’d really like to know.

      You do realize they could simply check the box marked “christian” instead
      of muslim, and gain access. You know that, right?

      +Sturgeon yes, there would be terrorism. There was islam terrorism before
      any American interference. It came into existence in the wake of the fall
      of the Ottoman empire (because of real or perceived injustice, humiliation
      etc) and it has since then never stopped to expand. ISIS would have risen
      regardless of American politics, as a bundling of all those fragmented
      terrorist groups looking for occasions and allies to expand their hate
      ridden agenda. The koran gives them the perfect legitimation for that jihad
      against everything that is different and not conform the rules. So stop
      blaming the west. Your terrorism is your love child

      Muslims are not not in any way equivalent to Nazis. There is no eugenicist
      racial supremacy ideology in Islam. In islam there is no racism/distinction
      between black, white, arab, asian etc. Only one humanity under Allah, one
      ummah (community), a multi-ethnic polity.
      Islam is no more a backward religion than Christianity or Judaism etc.
      Every religion has fanatics that do unspeakable things in its’ name. It is
      Fascism to want the state to have more and more power/control over the
      citizenry, it is Nazism to target one group in society on the basis of
      race/religion. Muslims are the new Jews, not the new Nazis.

    Sharia Law is Antithetical to The founding Principles of America and that
    is a fact. I don’t think we should deport those who think that, but banning
    them from coming in wouldn’t be horrible.

      July 16, 2016 at 5:49 PM

      +You Lie Almost nothing of what you said can be argued against. The US
      shouldn’t have had invaded Iraq. I was one of the many million europeans
      who marched against the invasion. There was a colossal opposition from the
      public against it. However the invasion was not organized and carried out
      following a christian directive. The Vatican, a ghastly pygmy anachronism,
      was against it too. One of the reasons why the west is better than the
      muslim world is precisely because the separation of church and state. The
      decisions you are protesting were made in christian countries but not under
      a christian mandate. Finally, since you speak about the crusades, i’m
      actually writing to you from a country which suffered a lot from muslim
      invasions and the barbary slave trade…the crusades were a defensive war
      to try to stop al lot of the aggression carried out by muslims. Take that
      into consideration.
