According to New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters, who is following Senator Marco Rubio on the presidential campaign trail in Iowa, Rubio stated, “Guys, it’s not going to happen” when asked how Americans can “keep Sharia Law out of this country.”
Someone asks Rubio in Ft. Dodge how we can keep Sharia Law out of this country. Rubio brushes him off. “Guys, that’s not going to happen.”— Jeremy W. Peters (@jwpetersNYT) January 5, 2016
The statement is so vague that it can be interpreted as Rubio either stating that Sharia Law will never be kept out, or that it will never be allowed to get a foothold in the U.S.
Considering that I know Senor (Espanol for Mister) Rubio and his position against radical Islam, I am pretty confident that he believes that Sharia Law will not take hold here at home.
But of course, there are those “purists” out there that will interpret this as Rubio being soft on national security, and possibly even a Taliban and Muslim Brotherhood supporter or operative.
