Schiff: Newt’s Comments ‘Music to the Ears’ of Terrorists


Friday on CNN’s “The Lead,” while commenting on former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA), saying in wake of the terror attack in Nice France, that Muslims who believe in Sharia Law should be “deported,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said, “I think that has to be music to the ears of the radical Islamist out there because they want to paint this as a conflict between civilizations.”

Schiff said, “That is exactly the wrong approach. I think that has to be music to the ears of the radical Islamist out there because they want to paint this as a conflict between civilizations. They want to say that Muslims aren’t welcome in the West. That they don’t have a place in the West. That we need to fight the infidels. That kind of comment from Mr. Gingrich playing exactly into that propaganda line of thinking. That is a terribly counter productive thing to say. It was a last ditch effort, I think on Gingrich’s part to say please make me the vice presidential candidate, but he is doing damage in the mean time, damage on the side ideological war-front.”
