Louisiana Governor and Republican Presidential hopeful for 2016 Bobby Jindal (R-LA) had some tough words for worldwide Islam in a speech he gave in London before the Henry Jackson Society.
“…In the west, non-assimilationist Muslims establish enclaves and carry out as much of Sharia law as they can without regard for the laws of the democratic countries which provided them a new home…
It is startling to think that any country would allow, even unofficially, for a so called ‘no-go zone. The idea that a free country would allow for specific areas of its country to operate in an autonomous way that is not free and is in direct opposition to its laws is hard to fathom.”
“Let’s be honest here, Islam has a problem.
I will warn you in advance that I’m going to say some things that are not politically correct, so brace yourselves.
To be clear, I have no interest in defaming any religion, nor do I have any interest in assigning the maniacal acts of radical Islamists to millions of Muslims worldwide. I’m interested only in dealing with reality and facts.
And the fact is that radical Islamists do not believe in freedom or common decency nor are they willing to accommodate them in any way and anywhere.
We need to stop pretending otherwise.”
Jindal was on CNN over the weekend pressing these same issues as well as the need for immigrants to assimilate into their new cultures with Wolf Blitzer.
When pushed to walk back his “controversial” comments on non-Muslim “No-go zones” in European nations Jindal said, “Not at all. And I’m also making a bigger and maybe even more controversial point that radical Islam is a grave threat, we need Muslim leaders to denounce the individuals, not just the acts of violence, and also that it is absolutely correct to insist on assimilation.”
