Newt Gingrich Calls for ‘Sharia Test’ for Every U.S. Muslim
"If They believe in Shari‘a, they should be deported"
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has called for all U.S. Muslims to be tested to see if they believe in the Islamic law of Shari‘a.
“Let me be as blunt and direct as I can be. Western civilization is in a war. We should frankly test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in Shari‘a, they should be deported,” Gingrich said in an interview Thursday on Fox News. “Shari‘a is incompatible with Western civilization. Modern Muslims who have given upShari‘a, glad to have them as citizens. Perfectly happy to have them next door.”
The former Republican presidential contender’s comments were in response to the attack in Nice, France that left at least 84 people dead.
