According to Bill Maher over the weekend radical Muslims are the greatest terrorist threat that America faces and the Quran is a:

"hate-filled holy book."

Bill Maher has done it again but this time his controversial statement never received the coverage that it normally would have probably due to the earthquake in Japan.

Interestingly this statement was made as he talked with Congressman Keith Ellison a Muslim about his appearance before Rep. Peter King’s hearing on radical Islam in America. Even more surprising Ellison seemed to give him a pass especially in comparison to Peter King.

Besides the Quran reference in his discussion with Ellison Maher also said the following:

“I do agree that there are other groups that pose a terroristic threat to this country, I would say that the threat from radicalized Muslims is a unique and greater threat. It is the greatest threat.” … 

“We are dealing with a culture that is in its medieval era.” …  “[Islam] comes from a hate-filled holy book, the Quran, which is taken very literally by its people.” …

“They are trying to get nuclear weapons, I don’t think Tim McVeigh would ever have tried to get a nuclear weapon because I think right-wing nuts, they think they love this country and they are not trying to destroy this country, they want to get it away from the people they see as hijacking it. That’s different than Muslim extremists who want to destroy it.”

Meanwhile Rep. Ellison indicated that Maher was:

“lumping together things that shouldn’t be lumped together” and “casting a very wide net and therefore coming to the wrong conclusions.”

Response: If Peter King or any conservative had made statements like this you can only imagine how the main stream media would have gone into a PC attack mode on the 24 hour news cycle–condemnation on every station by every newscaster during every hour all day long.

However this is liberal atheist Bill Maher and he gets a pass and this received far less attention than even some of the statements that he has made against Christianity.

Is the Quran a ‘hate –filled Holy book’ like Maher says?

No.

Millions of Muslim believers in the Quran are peace loving citizens. However, there is a small minority of Muslim religious leaders who continue to take certain passages from the book and interpret them as support for their radical agenda of jihad and terrorism.            *Top
