Gingrich Calls for Testing, Expulsion of US Muslims

Gingrich is suggesting Muslims already in the United States be submitted to some kind of test to determine whether they believe sharia, or Islamic law.

Hours earlier, a driver, identified by French media as Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, rammed a lorry through a crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day before he was shot dead by police.

I agree with Gingrich that by large Sharia law is incompatible with Western civilization, and it should never be considered in a court of law and should never trump local, state, and federal law, as well as, the Constitution. Although it is often used in American political parlance to signify extremism, "sharia" refers to the Muslim code of conduct, not an official set of laws or a declaration of war. "And the very suggestion is repugnant and an affront to everything we stand for as Americans".

The president said it's been a "difficult several weeks in the United States". "Perfectly happy to have them next door", he added.

Gingrich did cite the surveillance program established by the New York City Police Department in the wake of the 9/11 attacks as being a strong example to follow.

"So let me start with where I'm coming from, and let me be as blunt and direct as I can be", Gingrich said.

In an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity the former speaker's idea was a stark contrast to the past 7 and a half years of the Obama administration's politically correct approach that has yielded no tangible results.

It's not just Muslims, however, who are denouncing Gingrich's call for a religious test. Joe Carter is with the Acton Institute, a think-tank in MI focused on the issue of religious liberty. The former House speaker acknowledged it appeared the IN governor was the choice, but said, "I've not been officially told".

Or that so many people in a country that regularly pats itself on the back for its insistence on rights and freedoms are nodding and saying, "makes sense".

In an appearance on Fox News Channel's "Hannity", Gingrich said that every person "who is of a Muslim background" in America should face a test.

"As we mourn the victims and determine how best to protect people of all faiths and backgrounds from such brutal attacks, let us not help the recruiting efforts of ISIS and other terror groups by blaming all Muslims for the murders in France".
