Let’s forget for a moment that we already have a Muslim in the White House. Newt is wrong because any Muslim who claims to reject sharia, would be lying. One cannot call oneself a Muslim and not believe in sharia law. And this is demonstrated by the level of outrage at Newt coming from our terrorist supporting friends at CAIR.
FOX NEWS (H/T Susan K) Hamas-linked CAIR (Council of American Islamic Relations) condemned Newt Gingrich for saying he would only hire Muslims to his administration if they renounced the use of Islam’s Shariah law as a tool for U.S. government. (And Newt has promised to prosecute groups like CAIR when he is president)
Calling Gingrich “one of the nation’s worst promoters of anti-Muslim bigotry,” CAIR suggested the Republican presidential candidate is a segregationist. “Newt Gingrich’s vision of America segregates our citizens by faith. His outdated political ideas look backward to a time when Catholics and Jews were vilified and their faiths called a threat,” said CAIR Legislative Director Corey Sayolor in a statement. (Catholic and Jews never flew planes into building. Muslims haven’t stopped attacking/trying to attack us on US soil since 1968)
Pointing to the religious freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment, CAIR defends Sharia law as a set of beliefs that “teaches marital fidelity, generous charity and a thirst for knowledge,” and mandates that Muslims respect the law of the land in which they live. (See, they can’t talk about sharia without lying)
Discover the Networks Ibrahim Hooper (aka Dougie) is a white American convert to Islam and one of the founders of the CAIR. Hooper has candidly stated that while he does not endorse the violent tactics of Islamic radicals, he does share their desire to impose Islam on all of America. “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future,” he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”(And intimidation via litigation jihad)
Later, Hooper stated that if Muslims were ever to become a numerical majority in the U.S., they would likely seek to replace the Constitution with Islamic law (Sharia), which they view as divinely inspired and thus superior to all other legal systems.
