Video: O’Reilly Explodes on CAIR Executive Director – ‘I Don’t Want to Hear About What Islam Means to You’

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on Tuesday clashed with Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), during a segment focused the impact of radical Islamic terrorism around the world. CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history.

After reminding his guest that radical Islam has been identified as a motivating factor in the Boston bombing suspects’ decision to attack the Boston Marathon, O’Reilly asked Awad to explain why he is wrong to target radical Islamic groups in the aftermath of the tragedy.

Rather than providing a direct answer to O’Reilly’s question, Awad instead gave an account of his personal emotional state following the Boston bombings and argued many Muslims felt the same way he did.

O’Reilly attempted to get Awad back on topic, telling him “I don’t have time for a speech.”

“You have got to go back and forth with me, OK? You not admitting that radical Islam drives worldwide terrorism puts you in the category where you have no credibility because the facts are the facts. Ninety percent of worldwide terrorism is radical Islam, period,” O’Reilly added.

    CAIR is just a political front for the same terrorist groups that are the usual suspects. Spin doctors. They are the same group that sues school districts that refuse to allow them to come in and “explain” Islam to JH kids, many times without parental permission.

    O’Reilly did not “unload” on this guy any more than he does on any other person who REFUSES to stay on point. CAIR is a radical Muslim Islamist group. The guy wanted to propagandize and O’Reilly did not allow it – – good for O’Reilly.

    Trying to reason with an Islamist is like trying to reason with a Progressive. A dead end.

    What Islam means to him (Mr. CAIR)……he thinks the “Faith” of Islam can be radicalized, because it’s written in their Qur’an to do so, and Jihad isn’t a Bad word to them either, just as it isn’t to Obama. Has anyone heard the interview with Obama by a reporter who asked him what he thought of Jihad? Obama said, Jihad means many different things……really???…it means “Holy War” Mr. Obama. You want a Holy War? You’ve got it!
