WATCH: Tucker Debates Prof. on Islamophobia's Role in Terrorism
Tucker Carlson debated the merits of Islamophobia's effect on the diaspora of domestic terrorism with a Georgetown professor that said such a mindset can indeed have implications.
Engy Abdelkader said there is never a justification of an attack like the one at Ohio State University.
But, she said that anti-Muslim bigotry can contribute to a sense of "cultural homelessness" in the Muslim-American community:
"They don't identify with their home country and feel alienated from their new host country," she said.
Carlson disagreed with Abdelkader's contention that FBI data shows there is a greater threat of attacks from "white supremacist" and "right-wing extremist" groups.
However, she said she was referencing individual attacks and not victim counts.
"It's important to realize that Muslim-Americans are your doctors and teachers," she said.
