Hannity: How Will Muslim Refugees Assimilate When Sharia Law ‘Is the Antithesis of Our Constitutional Republic'?

Nationally syndicated radio host Sean Hannity pointed to the “clash of cultures” between Sharia Law and American values, asking how we will know whether Syrian refugees raised under Sharia Law “want to assimilate into American values.”

“How do we ascertain if they want to assimilate into American values, because they want liberty and freedom, and the hungering of their soul is for a better life for them and their families and their daughters and their sons?” Hannity asked. “Or do they come here like they did in Paris, infiltrate the refugee community, and those that want a better life – with the intention of bringing a Caliphate and killing as many Americans as possible – all in the name of Allah and in the search of seventy-two virgins?

Here is the transcript of Hannity’s comments:

“What do I keep talking about that nobody in the media wants to talk about?

“If you live in Saudi Arabia, if you live in any of these Muslim countries that have strict, radical Sharia law, it is a clash of cultures. It is the antithesis. Sharia law is the antithesis of our Constitutional republic.

“In other words, if you’re going to force women to wear certain clothes, if you’re not going to allow women to drive a car, if you’re raised in a culture where a woman that’s raped needs four male eyewitnesses, if a woman needs male relatives to go out in public, that is a direct contradiction of American values.

“It is a clash of cultures. Look, I happen to think, I guess I’m very American-centric, if you will, and I believe in American exceptionalism, I happen to believe that women should be able to pick their own clothes. And I happen to believe the women in my life don’t need me to take them outside of the house. And I happen to believe that if a woman is raped, you just need, you know, physical evidence, one eyewitness would be enough to prove rape. I just happen to believe that in some cases women would be able to pick the person they marry.

“You know, but, you know, maybe I’m just, you know, too liberal for some. It’s ridiculous. It’s a clash of cultures.

“Now go to the Syrian refugee issue. Okay, now people that have those values, have been raised in that culture, want to come to America.

“How do we ascertain if they want to assimilate into American values, because they want liberty and freedom, and the hungering of their soul is for a better life for them and their families and their daughters and their sons? Or do they come here like they did in Paris, infiltrate the refugee community, and those that want a better life – with the intention of bringing a Caliphate and killing as many Americans as possible – all in the name of Allah and in the search of seventy-two virgins?

“How many terror incidents is it going to take to wake this country the hell up? How many people will have to die because we are stupid? We are now back to a pre-9/11 mentality.”
