Hannity Guest Confronts Him on Phil Robertson’s ‘Convert or Die’ ISIS Remark

Sean Hannity grilled one of his guests tonight on groups like ISIS terrorizing Americans and people in their own countries. But things took a heated turn when Hannity’s guest put him on the spot about Phil Robertson‘s “convert or die” comments about ISIS on his show yesterday.

Hannity went down a list of terrorists groups with Muhammed Siddeeq to see if he would acknowledge them as terrorist groups. And for the most part, he did. They fought over the categorization of Hezbollah as such, and Hannity declared that if anyone was killing in the name of his religion, he would condemn it.

Siddeeq piped up, “You didn’t condemn the Duck Dynasty [guy] yesterday!” Hannity defended Robertson, saying, “Either we have to change their minds or we have to kill the people that are beheading innocent Americans!”

Siddeeq shot back, “Does that sound like ISIS?” Hannity responded, “No! No it doesn’t!” (Ed Schultz expressed his agreement with Siddeeq’s point earlier.)
