Shame on Bill O'Reilly
Bill O'Reilly had Ground Zero mosque radical Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf on for a full segment last week to shill the deceptive narrative of his latest book. In a telling moment, Rauf claimed during the segment to have lost "at least" 60 Muslims on 9/11. Only the Muslims separate out the Muslim dead from the rest (and that number of Muslims goes from 19 to 300). No other group points to the number of Christians or Jews, etc., who were killed on 9/11.
For his part, O'Reilly promised to pick up a hammer and help the imam build his Islamic center if Rauf "condemned terrorism." What O'Reilly neglected to qualify was Rauf's definition of "terrorism." In Islam, terrorists are those who defend themselves against Islam. Under Islam, the definition of "terrorism" is resistance to Islam.
O'Reilly neglected to query how Rauf could claim to want to build a multi-faith center since, under Islam, non-believers are prohibited from praying in a mosque except when invited for dawah (proselytizing). Rauf said, "We have to fight against the extremists in all of our faith traditions." This was patently dishonest. Rauf was trying to deflect attention away from the fact that only Muslim "extremists" are killing other people because of their faith. Christian and Jewish "extremists" – i.e. those who are devout the way Islamic jihadists are devout Muslims – aren't committing violence in the name of their religion. Only Muslims are. Rauf and other Islamic supremacists hope you don't notice that his call to fight against "extremism" is really a diversion of attention away from the only "extremists" who are violent.
