Fox’s Bolling Can’t Get Enough Of Guest’s Inflammatory Anti-Muslim Comments

3 July 2012 General 44 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

Fox News’ Eric Bolling continued his campaign against American Muslims today, endorsing the views of a filmmaker who claimed Islam is “the worst, most deadly idea in the history of the world.”

Bolling’s guest was Eric Bell, a filmmaker who produced a documentary on a mosque in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Bell claimed he originally saw “the Muslim community as victims” and that he had an “inclination to stick up for them.” Bell further claimed that after doing “some serious research about Islam” he found that Islam is “a radical, savage religion” and “the worst, most deadliest idea in the history of the world.” According to the Huffington Post, Bell said in a different interview that “the biggest threat to human rights is Islam.” Not only did Bolling not push back on Bell’s inflammatory rhetoric, he responded to Bell by saying he would “[l]ove to have you back and maybe expand on it a little bit more.”

At the end of the program, Bolling replayed the worst of Bell’s anti-Islam comments and announced that he would return the next day for another interview, hyping Bell as someone who “told the truth about radical Islam.” But during his interview, Bell did not limit his attacks to “radical Islam,” he attacked the religion itself. Bell attacked Islam’s prophet Mohammed before claiming Islam “is a radical, savage religion” and called it “the worst, most deadliest idea in the history of the world”:

BOLLING: What is actually happening? I only have a couple of seconds. Tell me what you found.

BELL: I found that there’s a man who raped a 9-year-old girl, who owned slaves, who killed his critics, who beheaded a tribe full of Jews named Muhammad who is the highest moral example in Islam for 1.6 billion people. And that this is a radical, savage religion. The people aren’t all radical, thank god. But the religion is the worst, most deadliest idea in the history of the world. And we need to make sure that we keep a close eye on it in this country.

Bolling’s endorsement of Bell’s views came just days after a resident of Texas was indicted for “threatening to use violence” against the Murfreesboro mosque. In addition, The New York Times reported that the construction site of the mosque “has been repeatedly vandalized” and construction equipment at the site “has been set on fire.” Other mosques around the country have also been subjected to vandalism and arson. But it should come as no surprise that Bolling endorsed Bell’s extreme anti-Muslim comments, as he has a history of extremeanti-Muslim comments himself.

  1. Here is one of many documents published in the last six years where Muslim leaders, Imams, Sheiks and teachers of Islam have all spoken out and even signed these documents – in public – hoping the people will know the truth of Islam:

    In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
    U.S. MUSLIM RELIGIOUS COUNCIL ISSUES FATWA AGAINST TERRORISM

    [read the details

    The Fiqh Council of North America wishes to reaffirm Islam’s absolute condemnation of terrorism and religious extremism.

    Islam strictly condemns religious extremism and the use of violence against innocent lives.

    There is no justification in Islam for extremism or terrorism. Targeting civilians’ life and property through suicide bombings or any other method of attack is haram – or forbidden – and those who commit these barbaric acts are criminals, not “martyrs.”

    The Qur’an, Islam’s revealed text, states: “Whoever kills a person [unjustly]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.”

    (Qur’an, 5:32)

    Prophet Muhammad said there is no excuse for committing unjust acts: “Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well, and that if they do wrong you will do wrong to them. Instead, accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong (even) if they do evil.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

    God mandates moderation in faith and in all aspects of life when He states in the Qur’an: “We made you to be a community of the middle way, so that (with the example of your lives) you might bear witness to the truth before all mankind.” (Qur’an, 2:143)

    In another verse, God explains our duties as human beings when he says “Let there arise from among you a band of people who invite to righteousness, and enjoin good and forbid evil.” (Qur’an, 3:104)

    Islam teaches us to act in a caring manner to all of God’s creation. The Prophet Muhammad, who is described in the Qur’an as “a mercy to the worlds” said: “All creation is the family of God, and the person most beloved by God (is the one) who is kind and caring toward His family.”

    In the light of the teachings of the Qur’an and Sunnah we clearly and strongly state:

    1. All acts of terrorism targeting civilians are haram (forbidden) in Islam.

    2. It is haram for a Muslim to cooperate with any individual or group that is involved in any act of terrorism or violence.

    3. It is the civic and religious duty of Muslims to cooperate with law enforcement authorities to protect the lives of all civilians.

    We issue this fatwa following the guidance of our scripture, the Qur’an, and the teachings of our Prophet Muhammad – peace be upon him. We urge all people to resolve all conflicts in just and peaceful manners.

    We pray for the defeat of extremism and terrorism. We pray for the safety and security of our ountry, the United States, and its people. We pray for the safety and security of all inhabitants of our planet. We pray that interfaith harmony and cooperation prevail both in the United States and all around the globe.

  2. By the way, many of these Imams and Shaikhs have studied in Muslim countries all over the world.

  3. Guy obviously visited the wrong sites. This happens sometimes. Nothing you can do about it. 9 year old raper/pedophile? Yep, that’s the most popular by far, but did they realize that Aisha was previously engaged to another man b4 she married Muhammad (S)? It was totally normal in those days, and even in the Byzantine Christian Empire for such marriages to take place. It would not be considered rape if she consented. Anyone who reads her statements in the Hadith would think she sounded older. As for how old she was the narrator made an assumption and no definite proof of age could be determined. All we know is she somehow reached puberty at 9. If it’s after puberty than how can they say its pedophilia? In Christianity, Joseph was 90 when he was betrothed to Mary, and she had not yet reached puberty. You don’t hear Muslims calling him a pedophile or saying Jesus is the son of Joseph.

    Slavery? Every country had slaves in those times. It was part of everyone’s daily lives. The Quran is the only religious text that recognizes the human rights of the slaves. But ppl usually refer to the majority of slavery today attributed to Islam becuz its in the Middle East.
    Beheading a whole tribe of Jews? You mean Banu Qurayzah? Well yeah, the death penalty for treason in Judaism is beheading, (Deuteronomy 20:10-14) and that is how they were punished. Punishment was determined by Sa’ad bin Muad, a Jewish Muslim convert from the tribe of Banu Qurayzah, so he punished them according to the Mosaic Laws. The reason the tribe was punished in the first place was they broke the treaty they formed with the Muslims in Yathrib and aided the Pagans of Mecca in order to annihilate the Muslims. There were also two other Jewish tribes who attempted to assassinate Muhammad (S) as well. Poisoning was one way, throwing a large stone from a high place was another. The Prophet simply had them banished, told them to pack up and leave becuz they were no longer “welcome” in Madinah. Tolerance even for assassins. Guess the Christian and Judaism sites he visited left out these few key points.

  4. The group above is not praying for any of the baloney posted above, they are praying for Islam to prevail and crush the rest of us. This goal is what connects the clean handed to the red handed.

    The muslim mouthing nice verses is brother to the one bombing the marketplace.

  5. Stop fooling the non-muslims. When the % of population is low, Muslims sing the “peace” tune. When their % starts increasing, they move to “convet or die infidel”tune. Proof ? Show us the freedom of religion and expression in Islamic countries.

    Wherever Islam has come to power, it has taken the race/culture/country back to stone ages.

    I don’t believe these muslims and muslim apologists one bit. They are all either actively or passively involved in getting Islam on the throne.

    Happy Jul 4th ! Freedom and Humanity are never cherished in Islam like they are in non-islamic countries/ societies. That should get the antennae up.

  6. I’ll believe what the muslims SAY when the chistians and jews can safely build churches and synagogues in islamic countries. Actions speak louder than words.

  7. Do YOUR OWN RESEARCH. Don’t let anybody lie to you. Learn the meaning of words like “Taqiyya,” “Taysir” and “Tawriya.” Only then you will be able to make up your own mind. Don’t let anybody deceive you!

    You have a brain and a mind of your own. Use it. If you read this it means you have access to information never before readily available to the common folk. USE IT.

    Please, don’t allow anybody to turn you into a BDUI (brain dead useful idiot.)

  8. I’m with Aikido.

  9. “Islamophobia” has a long history. It goes all the way back to when muslims first began killing non-muslims in the name of allah. Muslims have continued their jihad against other religions for over 1400 years…stopped only by the ability of non-muslims to defend themselves. Not a week goes by that muslims do not attempt to kill christians, jews, hindus and buddhists (as well as other muslims)… explicitly in the name of allah.

    Islam’s purpose and goal is submission of non-muslims to allah’s will. This is not islamic “fundamentalism,” “extremism,” “fanaticism,” “Islamo-fascism,” or “Islamism,” but islam proper, islam in its full orthodox form as it has been understood and practiced by muslims from the time of muhammad to the present.

    Personally I have a “phobia” against anyone who wants me to submit to them. lan astaslem

  10. Let’s see a Fatwa against Islamic Supremacism and a fatwa against refusal to assimilate and maybe we’ll start believing in you. Otherwise, I’d like more lime and salt with my taqiyya thank you.

  11. What did Eric say that was incorrect? For all those peaceful quotes we can give you many more hateful ones e.g 47:4 ‘When Ye meet the unbelievers, smite at their necks and when ye have caused a bloodbath among them bind a bond firmly on them’ Great comment Aikido, exposure is really happening!

  12. Wow. It is nearly impossible to talk and explain Islam to some people. People go online onto crazy places and learn crazy untrue things about Islam. But when we Muslims reveal that Islam is against terrorism, everyone yells, “TAQIYYA”. People are being selective on what they believe. First of all, this fatwa is supported by Quran and Hadith! Why do you guys still deny then?! Islam is not against human rights. It just seems that way for a person who has lived in a modern country for all his life. Of course not developed countries will not be developed. So don’t go to Yemen and say that the problem is all Islam. No, those places did not live through any renaissance or enlightenment periods.

  13. It’s not the words Hilmi, it is the deeds. Fine words butter no parsnips.

    In olden times, when muslims showed up and committed a grand massacre, the survivors converted to Islam. They were impressed, terrified, whatever. Nowadays it is more complicated. They can succeed in making people flee. Trouble of it is, that does not create prosperity. rather the reverse.

    After the unbelievers flee, the muslims start in on themselves….

  14. Bolling is an ignorant, intolerant racist fool!

  15. Maybe this guy (others like him) don

  16. Worst thing ever huh? “Perhaps those who disbelieve will wish that they had been Muslims.” – 15:2

  17. I wish there was someway to endorse an article without “Liking” it. In cases like this it makes me cringe.

  18. The guy that is saying it is a WHITE GUY, what more do you expect from the culture that gave the world gas chambers and rape camps?

    This is just WHITE PARANOIA. Whites will believe almost anything about Non Whites provided you lie out of your ass. Whites will believe first and foremost a White face rather than a brown face, even logic is staring at them directly in the eye.

    White culture is so barbaric and stupid its no wonder White economies are stagnanting. “Hey lets blame the Muslims cos we can’t blame Jews anymore!” Grow the f**k up.

  19. Let’s see. The Inquisition, the crusades, Protestant v. Catholic wars for centuries in Europe, Decimation of native populations via colonization….. I beg to differ.

  20. Actually I think fox news and Bolling are the worst most deadly ideas.

  21. The worst part is not that he does this but that he influences others to think this way. It’s destructive to peace. There are Muslims who act this way toward non Muslims and Christians who do the same. When you spread ignorance, intolerance, and hate you are just as guilty as the other guy.

  23. “The worst, most deadly idea in history”- sounds more like Faux News.

  24. I’m “in” idiot? Speak for yourself.

  25. People always paint Fox news as the bigoted biased news corp. Fox news is supposedly homophobic/racist/biased/blah blah blah. I can tell you one thing. Fox News definitely didn’t change a certain someones 911 call to make him appear as a racist. Zimmerman/NBC. Fox News at least allows opposing views on their network. They also have the show glee. Which obviously promotes gender/sexual preference equality. They also air family guy which is made by Seth Mcfarlane. A super “liberal”. If they had some secret radical “agenda” these shows would NOT be aired. Hell, I think its safe to say Fox is the least biased and MOST open minded. Liberals scream ignorance not when something lacks knowledge, but when it doesn’t go along with their “agenda”. Whatever it may be. Which, as it turns out, is the VERY definition of ignorance. Allah bless America.

  26. You are still an idiot, Rasin Sadooq.

  27. the more i read of this hate crimes againts islam or anti-muslim comments, the more scare i get about raising my children in this country. What goes trough my head is, “what will happen to them as a muslim living here? what if this all get worse? what will happen to them?”

  28. by creating more hate towards Muslim will only

  29. help islam to spread more quickly And by knowing more about it will clear the misconception i guess!

  30. I “love” the selective approval process here. My guess is that this comment won’t be approved either, since my last 3 or 4 comments were not approved. It just goes to prove that Taqiyya and Kitman is clearly part of Islam.

    Islam doesn’t allow for individual rights like Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion. A devout Muslims must be a “Perfect Slave” to Allah.

  31. Hilmi,

    “Yemen and say that the problem is all Islam. No, those places did not live through any renaissance or enlightenment periods” what? isn’t yemen on the arabian peninsula. shouldn’t it’s enlightenment have been when muhammad himself, you know god’s last prophet, was reveling the perfect koran, was in charge? that’s a confusing comment.

    “Of course not developed countries will not be developed.” true that. but shouldn’t god be developed? shouldn’t his divine writ be developed? just because slavery existed everywhere on earth, not really sure how anyone would know that, but let’s say so for arguement’s sake it did. and every one married 9 year olds, and had sex with consenting postpubescent 12 year olds. but shouldn’t the creator of all things know it is not good to enslave people and have sex with little girls?

  32. M Bennett,

    “All we know is she somehow reached puberty at 9.” not the norm, but certainly not unheard of. didn’t a mexican girl just break the record for youngest birth, aged 5?
    “If it’s after puberty than how can they say its pedophilia?” he wouldn’t be, just a statutory rapist, by modern standard. well western standards. but hey if it was good enough for the prophet why change standards, right.
    “In Christianity, Joseph was 90 when he was betrothed to Mary, and she had not yet reached puberty. You don’t hear Muslims calling him a pedophile or saying Jesus is the son of Joseph.” wouldn’t saying such a thing be blasphemy?
    [19.19] He said: I am only a messenger of your Lord: That I will give you a pure boy.
    [19.20] She said: When shall I have a boy and no mortal has yet touched me, nor have I been unchaste?
    [19.21] He said: Even so; your Lord says: It is easy to Me: and that We may make him a sign to men and a mercy from Us, and it is a matter which has been decreed.
    [19.22] So she conceived him; then withdrew herself with him to a remote place.

    just because slavery existed everywhere on earth, not really sure how you would know that, but let’s say so for arguement’s sake it did. and every one had sex with consenting postpubescent 9 year olds. but shouldn’t the creator of all things know it is not good to enslave people and have sex with little girls?

  33. here’s a link for your favorites

  34. “Perhaps those who disbelieve will wish that they had been Muslims.” – 15:2

  35. Christians in Saudi Arabia have also condemned extremism, every christian organisation in Saudi Arabia has signed up, here is the list:

  36. That recent incident in Pakistan where a mob dragged a mentally deficient man out of a police station and beat him to death is very similar to old US lynching stories.

    On the strength of a dubious rumor, a mob runs amok and kills a person or persons and nobody is punished for it, indeed they make postcards of the event and mail it to their friends.

    So. How did US put an end to that?

  37. To answer 2becaz, who wrote:
    “I’ll believe what the muslims SAY when the chistians and jews can safely build churches and synagogues in islamic countries. Actions speak louder than words.”

    I am Iranian and can only talk for Iran, which perhaps in your mind is the most zealous Muslim country on earth. Only in Tehran, we have more that 40 churches and more that 30 synagogues (more than thirty synagogues). This is obviously much more than all mosques in New York.
    This is only in Tehran. There are more in other cities, with relatively have more Jewish and Christian populations.

  38. list of christian orgs in saudi arabia? that’s funny.

  39. That’s interesting, Pedram. Are they allowed to repair their buildings or build new ones? I wonder how many Christians and Jews live there now and are they subject to legal discrimination in the workplace, etc.

    I have read that there are underground churches in Iran. Why do they have to be underground? I suppose it is against the law to convert out of Islam.

  40. pedram,

    where do you get your stats? according to this site: “There are almost a million Muslims in New York City. (Some sources claim 1.4 million; the New York City Community Affairs Bureau states the figure as 800 000.) There are more than 100 mosques in the city, plus an unknown number of small mosques that worshipers set up in their apartments or places that are not visible from the street.”

    http://didyouknow.org/number-of-churches-and-mosques-in-new-york-city/

    so what about the zoroastians? haven’t they been driven from persia by the muslims? so regardless of your freedom of religion status, do you support stoning people to death, given the proper burden of proof, of course.

  41. http://www.nycreligion.info/?p=598

    “As of today, A Journey through NYC religions has counted 175 mosques in New York City. The most commonly used figure in current media reports is 100+ mosques, a figure that derives from a 1999 study.”

  42. Wikipedia has list of worship bldgs in Tehran, i see some fire temples.

  43. my bad. i thought the zoroastians were driven from persia by the muslims. i apoligize. the muslims tolerance knows no bounds. i’m sure the scientologists and the church of satan both have houses of worship as well in tehran?

  44. The first refugees from the muslims I met were a bahai family from iran and an Armenian lady whose parents had run from the Turks.

    My family lived near the great ports, first NYC and later SF.
