As Islamic terrorists launch attacks across the globe, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal plans to call on Muslim leaders to publicly condemn these “acts of barbarism,” declaring: “Let’s be honest here, Islam has a problem.”
“If Islam does not support what is happening in the name of Islam, then they need to stand up and stop it,” Jindal says in prepared remarks released by his office ahead of his Monday speech in London. “Many Islamic leaders argue that these are the acts of a radical few.”
“I will warn you in advance that I’m going to say some things that are not politically correct, so brace yourselves,” Jindal, a potential Republican candidate for president, will say at the Henry Jackson Society on Monday.
“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,” Jindal says. “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,” Jindal says. “We need to stop pretending otherwise.”
