Angelo Murder and FOX Journalist Statement

Reader comment on item: The Fatal Stabbing of Angelo Frammartino, Palestinian Apologist

Submitted by John Randall Peacher (United States), Aug 28, 2006 at 12:18

One of the two FOX Journalists who were just released is saying publicly that he has the "highest respect" for Islam. Even being forced at gunpoint to convert to Islam apparently has not changed this belief.

I have never heard a journalist say they have the "highest respect" for the Branch Davidians from Waco, Texas, or Timothy McVeigh who blew up the US Courthouse in Oklahoma. Never have I head one say they have the "highest respect" for Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin.

What is the difference? Islamist's have murdered women and children, used civilians for human shields, and beheaded dozens after terrorizing them. Many in the West need to rexamine or redefine what the phrase "highest respect" really means. Statements as such are not helpful in the fight against murderers and terrorists.
