Last night, with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Newt Gingrich said what needs to be said: “We are in a war …”
He spoke after the news came of the latest jihad atrocity: a Muslim killing more than 80 people and injuring many more by running them over with a truck and shooting them in the French coastal town of Nice, where thousands were out celebrating Bastille Day.
He will not accept that “Western civilization is helpless in the face of a group of medieval barbarians”.
The “group” is very large. It is Islam.
He proposes steps that need to be taken to defeat the jihadis, including, “Frankly, just kill them.”
The mosques and madrassas, he says, must be monitored.
He urges the deportation of every Muslim who believes in sharia law. As sharia is inseparable from Islam, such a measure would effect the suppression of Islam in America – which is long overdue.
The only thing he says that we disagree with is “Islam is not necessarily evil”. It is.
