Bill O’Reilly Confronts Muslim Guest Over Why Many Muslims Believe Violence Is Justified
Religion of peace? Please. That is a huge lie that no one really believes.
Check it out:
Bill O’Reilly brought up a Pew study [PDF] finding that a disturbingly high percentage of Muslims in some countries support honor killings, believe suicide bombings to be justified, and say that women should be subservient to their husbands. O’Reilly brought on Harris Zafar, the national spokesperson for Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, to address the big statistic that 28 percent of Muslims all over the world believe that violence is justified.
Zafar acknowledged that’s a big concern with the American Muslim community, who identify more with Americans than with foreign Muslims. O’Reilly agreed that American Muslims are not a big concern, but what he said is problematic is Muslims overseas coming to the United States killing people “in the name of Allah.”
O’Reilly said that if 28 percent of the followers of any other religion believed violence was justified, it would be a huge scandal. Zafar insisted those beliefs are not about the Islamic faith itself, but about the specific situations in certain Muslim nations with low literacy rates and bad economies.
