Pointing Out Muslims Have Been Beheading People for Centuries Isn’t Islamophobic

“Leave it to ‘journalists,’” quips Twitchy, “to make a Fox News personality the villain in a story about Islamic terrorists beheading people.”

But that is exactly what the Asian American Journalists Association has done, calling on Fox News to apologize for Andrea Tantaros’s August 20 comments on the channel’s roundtable show, Outnumbered.

Discussing the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the Islamic State, Tantaros said: “And they’ve been doing this for hundreds and hundreds of years, if you study the history of Islam. . . . This isn’t a surprise. You can’t solve it with a dialogue. You can’t solve it with a summit,” she said. “You solve it with a bullet to the head. It’s the only thing these people understand.”

In a statement on its website, AAJA condemned the “blanket comments that serve to perpetuate hate and Islamophobia.”
