Howard Dean: Don't Call Paris Attackers 'Muslim Terrorists'
Former presidential candidate Howard Dean made waves on MSNBC yesterday when he argued that people should not call the Paris attackers "Muslim terrorists."
"I stopped calling these people Muslim terrorists. They’re about as Muslim as I am," Dean said on "Morning Joe."
Dean argued that the terrorists have no respect for human life, which is contrary to what the Koran teaches.
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, reacted on "Fox and Friends" today.
"I was like, 'Wow, do these people ever listen to themselves and realize that the American people are not fools? That ultimately we realize there's a problem?' You wonder if the D in Dean or Democratic Party is for denial. You can't address a problem unless you identify it," said Jasser, adding that liberals' current strategy of "appeasement" is actually emboldening terrorists.
The author of "A Battle for the Soul of Islam" said even the New York Times is "waking up," publishing a piece on confronting "blasphemy."
