He really wrote these sentences:

There should be no mosque near Ground Zero in New York so long as there are no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia. The time for double standards that allow Islamists to behave aggressively toward us while they demand our weakness and submission is over.

No word yet on whether Newt favors shutting down Manhattan’s Indian restaurants until the Indian legislature allows the consumption of hamburgers.
