Fox Guest Declares UK City ‘Totally Muslim,’ David Cameron Declares Him ‘Complete Idiot’

Terrorism commentator Steve Emerson told Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro Sunday that some European cities had become “no-go zones” for non-Muslims, including Birmingham, England, which he declared was “totally Muslim.”

“In Britain, it’s not just no-go zones, there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in,” Emerson said. “And, parts of London, there are actually Muslim religious police that actually beat and actually wound seriously anyone who doesn’t dress according to religious Muslim attire.”

UK Prime Minister David Cameron called him a “complete idiot.” “When I heard this, frankly, I choked on my porridge and I thought it must be April fool’s day,” Cameron said.

While Birmingham does have a large Muslim population, 46% of the city is Christian, per the 2011 census, double the Muslim population. Emerson quickly backtracked on the claim after the show, saying he had “clearly made a terrible error for which I am deeply sorry.” He also promised to donate to a Birmingham charity.

Too late: #FoxNewsFacts, an irregularly recurring hashtag mocking the network, sprung up Sunday night:
