Greta Offers Muslim Leaders a Platform to Condemn Islamic Terrorism

On her show last night, Fox’s Greta Van Susteren offered a platform for Muslim leaders to come on and condemn Islamic extremism and terrorism in front of a national audience. She did this because she doesn’t think enough Muslim leaders are doing enough to speak out against such actions.

Van Susteren explained it’s not fair for any American to link the Islamic religion itself to terrorism, and said, “I have a message to Muslim leaders. If they hate this stereotype, and I’m sure they do, they need to help stop it, and that is by having the courage to step up and condemn––loudly, clearly, and repetitively––Islamic extremism.”

And while she did credit the 120 Muslim scholars who wrote an open letter condemning ISIS, Van Susteren didn’t think that would be enough:

“Here’s my offer. I will give any Muslim leader of national or international stature the platform, right here on the record, to condemn Islamic extremism and to make a call to arms to every Muslim leader of every mosque to do the same: condemn Islamic extremism.”
