Last night, for the the third time, O'Reilly has allowed another Islamic supremacist to smear the American people (as if they were dunces), and smear me and my colleague. O'Reilly has Hamas-linked, Muslim Brotherhood front CAIR on repeatedly, and last night had on Hussein Ibish from the American Task Force on Palestine. We are not invited to respond. These supremacists spew on without interruption, but O'Reilly is afraid of what I am going to say. When O'Reilly had me on to respond to the fatwa Islamic supremacist and hate sponsor Nihad Awad issued against me (go here to see Awad minute 3:58), he cut me off at every turn (watch that video here).
"It's been a very damaging controversy ...... they [Rauf and Daisy] didn't present it in away that would be understood or sympathized with. They allowed some bloggers to define it as a ground zero mosque controversy and once it became perceived as the Ground Zero mosque I think they were sunk, the issue was sunk" Hussein Ibish [Few people with views as extremist as Ibish have been given as much respect and recognition -- he is an America-hater and Jew-hater.]
So millions of Americans are taking their marching orders from us? How insulting. Yet O'Reilly lets this garbage stand. Be a stand up guy, O'Reilly: either cut these propagandists and subversives from the show or have us on to tell the truth.Watch the video:
It is precisely this capacity for self-criticism that has been glaringly absent from Islam’s internal debate, both among American Muslims and those in the Islamic world. To take just one recent example: When asked about the fact that Muslim radicals make liberal use of the Koranic verse that calls Jews and Christians “apes and swine” and says that they are under the curse of Allah (Sura 5:60), Hussein Ibish of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee relied on American ignorance of Islam and simply denied that such a verse was actually in the Koran. Then he took a page from Al-Maeena’s Zionist demonization clique and suggested that those who asked such questions were simply bigots.
At that moment Ibish had an opportunity to explain that verse in a way that would remove its noxious implications and discredit the radicals who take it at face value. The fact that he chose instead to deny the existence of this verse raises questions about his ultimate goal. Does he want to instill in Americans a positive image of Islam at any cost — even at the expense of the truth?
In dealing with uncomfortable matters in this way he insults both Muslims and non-Muslims. By ignoring Koranic passages like Sura 5:60 and the book’s many calls to violence, moderate Muslims only give non-Muslims reason to suspect their intentions and honesty.
His group is honoring Helen Thomas -- need I say more?
UPDATE: Jack Kemp has more on the norming of the ugliest fringe race baiting.
