Fox News Contributor Monica Crowley: “We are in a Holy War” Against Muslims

Fox News contributor and Washington Times columnist Monica Crowley today said that the United States is in a “holy war” against radical Islam, including Muslim-Americans.

Crowley declares reverse-jihad on radical Islam.

Crowley appeared on The O’Reilly Factor, the right-wing network’s most popular program, along with Fox News’ token liberal commentator Alan Colmes, to discuss the upcoming Congressional hearings on radical Islam in America with host Bill O’Reilly.

The hearings, chaired by Rep. Peter King (R-NY), are ostensibly to probe the “extent of radicalization” of Muslim-Americans. They have drawn the ire of many Muslims, liberals and progressives who decry the un-American nature of the inquisition. Many compare it to the House Un-American Activities Committee chaired by Senator Joseph McCarthy (R-Wisconsin) in the 1950s. That communist witch hunt has gone down as one of the darker chapters in our nation’s history.

Discussing whether or not Rep. King’s hearings unfairly target Muslim-Americans, Crowley opined “the reality is that we’re in a holy war” against the more radical elements among them.

Her statement drew a rebuke from Colmes, who correctly pointed out that not even former President George W. Bush would go so far as to call the struggle between the United States and Islamic extremism a “holy war,” “crusade” gaffe aside.

This isn’t the first time that Crowley’s mouth has landed her in hot water. In 2008, again on the O’Reilly Factor, she attacked the Dutch city of Amsterdam as “a cesspool of corruption, crime. Everything is out of control. It’s anarchy.”

Her statement, which was utter bullshit, drew a vociferous response from the Netherlands, including this video:

Crowley also deeply offended many Canadians the following year when she appeared in a segment of Fox’s late-night program Red Eye mocking Canadian troops, even as they fought bravely in America’s war in Afghanistan.

    Why is it that you fail to point out the it was Al Queda, and other Islamic extremists that FIRST declared a Holy War against us! And that she was responding to that by saying that it WAS a Holy War based on THEIR declaration of a Holy War.

    It’s NOT like WWII where a nation declared war on us, or have you missed that? It’s an ideology, a religion, albeit the extremist part, that declared the war.

    But then of course, you don’t give a damn about that, do you? Nope, instead it’s an opportunity to of course attack Fox and the people there that you don’t agree with.

    You out and out DISHONESTY shows you exactly for what you are. Just another liberal “moralist” that thinks that you can tell lies or twist the truth to fit your agenda.

    People like you are digusting, you know that?

      Why is it that you fail to point out that al-Qaeda was largely a creation of the Reagan administration, which provided arms and training to the Afghan mujahedin so they could fight against the Soviet invasion? Why is it that you fail to point out that the events of 9/11 were simply retaliation for criminal US foreign policy in the Middle East– the support of brutal dictators in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Iran (pre-1979), the one-sided support of Israel despite its horrific record of atrocities against the Palestinian people, and the repeated US military interventions in the Middle East? No, dear Cheryl, you, like most Americans ignore these inconvenient truths. Ignorant about the world around you, you cling to the ridiculous beliefs that the terrorists “hate us for our freedoms.” Nothing could be further from the truth! Learn about America’s shocking record in the Middle East and you will understand exactly why terrorists attack us. What they do is wrong, but we’ve done 1000X worse over the course of our historical relations with the Muslim world.

    @Cheryl, you are kidding, correct?? Have you NOT learned a thing in the last ten+ years??? 911 was allowed/created so that the NWO could be ushered in and the war machine continue. I have lived in the Middle East, I continue to have wonderful Muslim friends here in the States. Your opinion is formed out of ignornace to truth, and fear.

    Actually, the “jews” have been trying to kill two birds with one stone by instigating a type of Armageddon between American “Christians” and the muslims. “Jews” consider both religions paganistic, and want to see both destroyed. They’re just taking it easy until Iran and Pakistan (the muslims) have quite an arsenal of nukes so the destruction on both sides will be maximized. And, Nancy, keep up the good work. Always do your research to warn REAL CHRISTIANS AND REAL AMERICAN CONSERVATIVES about who’s a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, America’s shadow government. You’re a true patriot.

    Read “Against all Religions and Governments of Europe.” The Illuminati is trying to turn Islam and Christianity against each other! They’ve done it before, and they’ll do it again!
