Louisiana Gov. Jindal Calls Islamic Terror What It Is

-By Warner Todd Huston

Defying the liberal foreign policy formula, last week Louisiana’s Republican Governor Bobby Jindal gave an honest, realistic assessment of the Islamist terror going on all across the world. It was an assessment that the Obama administration has refused to acknowledge but it was one that the American people yearn to hear from their leaders. Jindal has been one of the few who seems to understand the reality on the ground.

Naturally Jindal got all kinds of criticism after his interview on the January 26th edition of the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch.” During the interview Jindal called Islamic terror out for what it is, but his honesty and straight talk deserves to be praised.

The most amazing thing that he said–and also the most obviously true–is that he called the Muslim spread into the west an attempt to “colonize” and “invade” the west.

“If we’re not careful the same no-go zones you’re seeing now in Europe will come to America,” Jindal said. He went on to criticize academia and the “media elite” who work hard against the U.S. and “don’t want to proclaim American exceptionalism.”

This couldn’t be more true. The Muslims are attempting to destroy the west from within using the west’s own modern, liberal ideals. And it isn’t just happenstance, either. This is the cornerstone of the plan as set out by racist, hate groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

As to those “no-go zones,” this is something that Jindal took a lot of heat for saying. What he meant by this is that there are immigrant communities in Europe where police and other government officials are afraid to enter because the violent, dangerous Muslim immigrants are so strong there that police take their lives into their own hands by entering them.

When he said this, French officials immediately protested the characterization that their security and police services are so afraid of the Muslims that they steer clear of their slum-like neighborhoods.

Now, there certainly is no official policy of “no-go zones.” But there wouldn’t be, would there? The truth is that no-go zones are defacto. They absolutely do exist in France, Germany, England and other Eurotrash countries but the government there won’t admit that they exist. And Jindal is right. If we allow the Muslims to continue what they are doing, then no-go ones will soon grow here.

After all, we are seeing the building blocks of this here in the U.S. already. A Muslim community in Dallas, Texas, for instance, has set up an extra-legal sharia court to operate as a parallel justice system for its members and Texas authorities are apparently allowing it to continue unabated. This is the virtual camel’s nose under the tent. And they don’t call parts of Michigan–such as Dearborn–Michiganistan for nothing.

Jindal was also 100 percent correct about sharia law. Here is what Jindal said of sharia law…

But what is not acceptable and what you’ve seen in Europe and this is a very serious particular threat, you’ve got those that do want to try to impose a form of sharia law. And sharia law is antithetical, mutually exclusive of freedom, in treating women as first-class citizens, it is antithetical to the values we hold dear. And you see, third, forth generation immigrants in the U.K., France, in other places in Europe that don’t consider themselves part of those societies and that’s very dangerous.

The Governor went on to note that the Muslims immigrating to the U.S. and other western nations don’t want to become Americans, or Brits, or Frenchmen. They want to import their backwards, hate-filled, murderous ways into those western lands to corrupt and destroy them.

But what’s not acceptable is people that want to come and conquer us. That’s not immigration, by the way, that’s colonization. If someone wants to come here and change our fundamental culture and our values. If they want to come here and they want to set up their own culture and values that’s not immigration, that’s really invasion if you’re honest about it. Of course, the politically correct crowd when you say things like they’ll call you racist but this is a particular threat we face. And if we’re not serious about this we’re going to see more lone wolf actors. We’re gonna see more folks come into our country just like you’ve seen in other countries — the horrific shootings in Paris.

Exactly right, Governor!

Jindal had the guts to speak this truth and he deserves recognition for it.
