1. By the time the Republican leadership race took place in 2011, early 2012, four or five leading candidates including people like Newt Gingrich were willing to say things like, ‘There is a stealth Sharia, there’s a stealth plot among Muslim immigrants and their offspring in the United States to impose religious law upon the country.’ This suddenly had become something that you could say in polite society, in political circles and so on, in Congress in the United States. And I should say that Mitt Romney has never apparently subscribed to or spoken of these ideas, so luckily, perhaps because he’s himself from a religious minority, free from that.
