When Clay Higgins was a sheriff’s department spokesman in rural Louisiana, his rare candor precipitated his downfall, but not before it catapulted him to online fame and, more recently, a seat in the U.S. House.

Like another Republican politician who rode a populist wave to Washington this year — also with a penchant for making controversial statements off the cuff — the newly elected congressman finds himself under fire for making controversial statements about Islam.

“Not a single radicalized Islamic suspect should be granted any measure of quarter,”  the Louisiana Republican posted on Facebook on Sunday. “Their intended entry to the American homeland should be summarily denied. Every conceivable measure should be engaged to hunt them down. Hunt them, identify them, and kill them. Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.”

  1. It is time for Muslim mass to go through their aqeeda . They must inquire about the popular Muslim ideology . It is the prime time to distinguish between true Islam and distorted Islam . For me , the ideology which is waiting for a person who would make kafir- free world by sword , is the main reason behind all problem . When a Prophet is supposed to kill the person who will not embrace Islam , why does Mr.X or Y not have this right ? This ideology is not only motivating emotional youths but also nourishing terrorism . Those Muslims who are unaware of their ideology , must think . For every true Muslim , Islam is the another name of peace , tolerance , acceptance of religious diversities , fraternity etc. and the summary of the Quranic teaching is the acceptance of the authority of God and ” love for all , hatred for none ” , while the popular Muslim ideology opens the door for violence . Muslims must understand the difference .
