O'Reilly: There's 'Zero Chance' Obama Will Confront the Jihad
Bill O’Reilly tonight took on those who appear to be blaming France in the wake of the Paris terror attacks.
“The Factor” host said that some liberals – including President Barack Obama – believe that jihadists should not be associated with Islamic theology.
O’Reilly took on Daniel Burke’s remarks on CNN that Muslims in France feel they’re not treated as part of the state at large, and that Muslims may be “bullied” and “pushed aside.”
“Because France wants to remain a secular society, they have invited Islamic-terrorism, according to Mr. Burke,” O’Reilly said.
O’Reilly also fired back at Nicholas Kristof, who O’Reilly said wrote a column “complaining about me and others who want the Muslim world to be accountable to fight the jihad.”
“Kristof is the chief apologist for the excesses of Islam, and he is too frightened to debate the issue, hiding under his desk, tapping out his columns,” O’Reilly said.
“The Factor” host said he’s annoyed with the left on this issue because “it’s flat out dangerous.”
O'Reilly referenced Newt Gingrich’s column in the Wall Street Journal which said the only solution to worldwide terrorism is for Muslim nations to combat it. O’Reilly said that has not happened with the exception of Jordan, Morocco and sometimes Egypt.
According to O’Reilly, there is “zero chance” that Obama will change his point of view or confront the jihad.
“Even as reports say ISIS is gaining ground in Syria, the president has released five more terrorists from Guantanamo Bay. Even as another American nut is arrested for alleged jihadist-terror activity in Ohio, the White House spokesman continues to parse words. Mr. Obama knows what's going on. He just feels more comfortable looking away, and history will record that,” O’Reilly said.
