The largest Muslim civil liberties group in the United States on Wednesday 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.

Calling Gingrich "one of the nation's worst promoters of anti-Muslim bigotry," the Council of American Islamic Relations suggested the Republican presidential candidate is a segregationist.

Two of the largest muslim civil liberties groups...

There's your oxymoron, right there.

Why don't they go agitate for civil liberties in some islamic paradise? Maybe because they kinda want to go on breathing? Numbnuts.

By your enemies we will know you, Newt.

The renunciaton of Sharia by a Muslim counts for nothing anyway, as taqiyya requires them to lie to the Infidel for the advancement of Islam.

All non-citizen Muslims should have been deported starting 9/12/01, and all citizen Muslims put under surveillance.

I would love to see candidate Gingrich (and President Gingrich) take on CAIR (Council of Angry Islamic Radicals). Something that is long overdue.

BTW, I thought Gingrich’s answer to the question about whether he would allow Muslims in his administration was astute and brilliant. Wish I could find it so I could post it here.

His outdated political ideas look backward to a time when Catholics and Jews were vilified and their faiths called a threat

You mean a time like, say, YESTERDAY, in any majority Muslim country?

So... a moslem would never claim to have renounced sharia law and be lying about it, would they?

Would they?

If Muslims want to live under Shariah law they should immigrate to a country that honors Shariah law and that is NOT the USA. Newt is 100% correct here. Here the Constitution of the United States is the law of the land, not Shariah. Don’t like it? Don’t let the screen door hit you on the way out.

“It would depend entirely on whether they would commit in public to give up Shariah,” Gingrich said.

“A truly modern person who happened to worship Allah would not be a threat, a person who belonged to any kind of belief in Shariah, any effort to impose it on the rest of us, would be a mortal threat,” Gingrich told the crowd, adding that he’s “totally opposed” to Shariah law being applied in American courts and favors a federal law that “preempts” its use.

Next thing ya know Newt will require Nazis to renounce Naziism, and communists to renounce communism.

sharia is NOT separable from islame! They are parts of the same body.

I’m liking Newt more and more. Commonsense positions on most issues is a refreshing change from the mental pablum customarily coming out of DC.
There are still a number of issues on which I don’t agree with him (illegal immigration is one), but he’s certainly got the spine that many inside the beltway don’t have.

A little bit of advice for Muslims:

You want to live in this country? Fine, then you abide by our laws and legal system.

You don’t want to do that?

Then GTFO.

I would ban Muslims completely because their religion says it is OK to lie — even under oath — if the lie “benefits Islam”.

That being the case, no oath by any Muslim can ever be taken at face value. No contract with a Muslim is worth the paper it is printed on.

They simply cannot be depended on to follow their oath and act in the best interests of the United States if there is any possibility that doing so would hurt what they perceive to be Islamic interests.

Sorry. That’s the way it is.

His answer is why he would make such a great conservative president. He makes clear, even to liberals, why we have problems with Islam in this nation. Muslims people are great. Sharia law in intolerable. It forbids democracy for one of many reasons.

Without someone like Newt in charge, with political correctness on the move this will be the result in about 50 years:

The question was about a Muslim running for President - which would be different than a Muslim being part of his administration...

CAIR said the release was prompted by the candidate’s remarks Tuesday in Columbia when, asked if he would ever endorse a Muslim running for president.

“It would depend entirely on whether they would commit in public to give up Shariah,” Gingrich said.

“A truly modern person who happened to worship Allah would not be a threat, a person who belonged to any kind of belief in Shariah, any effort to impose it on the rest of us, would be a mortal threat,” Gingrich told the crowd, adding that he’s “totally opposed” to Shariah law being applied in American courts and favors a federal law that “preempts” its use.

Here's the other one, maybe it's just irony: '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.'

So moslems don't consider christianity a threat?
