Bobby Jindal: "Radical Islamists hate our values. They threaten our way of life. They don't appreciate, they don't condone freedom of expression and self determination. Anybody who would kill for drawing a cartoon does not -- is a terrorist -- is someone that we need to hunt down, we need to get rid of in our societies. The big issue is non assimilation. The fact that you've got people that want to come to our country, but not accept our values. And in some cases not adopt our language, in some cases want to set apart their own enclaves and continue to hold onto their own values. I think that's dangerous."
