Bill "Death Threat" O'Reilly Plugs Muslims for 9/11 Truth!
Bill O'Reilly, one of the most loathesome figures in the history of television, once hurled a barely-veiled death threat at Muslims for 9/11 Truth co-founder Kevin Barrett. On another occasion, he exhibited nauseatingly smarmy condescension toward one of Barrett's University of Wisconsin students. But his latest attack on the 80% of the world's Muslims who know 9/11 was an inside job, and on the 9/11 truth movement in general, was sickening even by O'Reilly standards.
O'Reilly tries to smear Imam Rauf, the point man behind the Cordoba Project Islamic Center, by associating him with Muslims for 9/11 Truth board member Faiz Khan, M.D. Dr. Khan is a 9/11 first responder with a well-deserved reputation as an unusually thoughtful and -- yes -- moderate person. O'Reilly tries to paint Dr. Faiz Khan as a dangerous "radical" simply because Dr. Khan has studied the facts of 9/11 and come to the same conclusions as 80% of the world's Muslims, roughly 100 million Americans, and a growing number of architects, engineers, and other experts.
It is, of course, O'Reilly and Fox News -- not Dr. Faiz Khan and the 1.2 billion Muslims who know 9/11 was an inside job -- who are the biggest bunch of extremists on the planet. They should be taken off the air ; - )
