VIA| In an interview in the wake of the Brussels attacks on Tuesday, GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump said that radical mosques need to be dealt with if America is to have an effective anti-terror response.
Calling for government surveillance of possible radicalized Islamic congregations, Trump said “we have to deal with the mosques,” adding that he was disappointed New York City had discontinued a similar program.
Trump made the comments during a Tuesday morning phone interview with Fox Business’ Maria Bartaromo.
“Frankly, look, we’re having problems with the Muslims, and we’re having problems with Muslims coming into the country,” Trump said.
“You need surveillance, you have to deal with the mosques whether you like it or not,” Trump added. “These attacks aren’t done by Swedish people, that I can tell you.”
Trump also talked about the effect that the increasing radical Islamic presence in Brussels was having on the city.
“Well, it’s a shame, it’s a horrible thing, and what’s going on in Brussels, it used to be one of the great places of the world … one of the most beautiful cities of the world 20 years ago, it was amazing actually, and safe,” Trump said.
“And now it’s a horror show. It’s an absolute horror show. And I’m not just talking about today, I’m saying you go to Brussels, it feels like an armed camp, and even then they can’t do much about what’s happening. There is a sick problem going on, Maria.”
Liberals, of course, are going furious over Trump’s plan. However, it’s little different than what the socialist President of France, Francois Hollande, did after the Paris attacks. During a surveillance sweep of French mosques, over 160 were found to have extremist links — or worse.
“This kind of speech shouldn’t even be allowed in Islamic countries, let alone secure countries like France,” said Hassam El Alaoui, an imam who worked with the French government.

Those 160 mosques represented about 5 percent of the mosques in France — no small number.
So, for liberals who don’t think Trump has the right idea, just remember — he’s just doing what a socialist did.
