A Muslim caller from Texas named Sahleem was listening to Sean’s discussion with Larry Elders on his interview with unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and felt compelled to call Sean’s show. “Why are Bush and Rumsfeld so unrepentant? They killed thousands of people…they are war criminals” he begins off the bat.
Sean, immediately recognizing his world view, asks if he believes there is such a thing as Islamic Terrorism. The caller responds, essentially, that anything perceived as terrorism is nothing more than a response to the crusade. That crusade being a Christian crusade that started in 1948 when Israel was created: “everything that happened since was a response to that” insists Sahleem.
“Israel shouldn’t have been given a place? Israel in its current form shouldn’t exist in your view?” Sean asks. Sahleem has an answer: “Israel shouldn’t exist in the Middle-East. Israel should go to up-state New York.” Sahleem even suggests Sean and his friends buy property in up-state New York and simply move Israel there.
But this caller’s hatred is evil to the core. He also doesn’t believe Bin Laden exists at this point, that Bush and his Hollywood crowd put together a phony video showing Bin Laden is behind the 9/11 attacks. He believes that the four black boxes from the airplanes that perished on 9/11 have been hidden, but if they were to be “found” they would show Bush was behind the attacks.
Finally Sean asks “Do you believe 9/11 was evil…that people slaughtered was evil?”
“Slaughtered? Slaughtered by whom? It was evil but done not by the Muslims but by the Bush administration.”
Evil does exist and we must continue to stand behind those who are not only willing to accept that fact, but who are willing to fight it.
