ISLAMOPHOBIC INDIVIDUALS: Brian Kilmeade

Brian Kilmeade

In September 2013, Kilmeade attempted to link the phrase Allahu Akbar (”God is Great.”) to terrorism.

Brian Kilmeade is a commentator on Fox News Channel.

In September 2013, Kilmeade attempted to link the phrase Allahu Akbar, which means ”God is Great,” to terrorism. After showing Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) video of a rocket attack on a Syrian city, Kilmeade said he had “a problem with helping those people screaming that after a hit.”  McCain challenged Kilmeade asking him if he disagreed with an American person saying “Thank God.” Kilmeade did not respond.

In June 2013, Kilmeade told a leader of the English Defence League, an anti-Muslim group known for violent protests, “We got your back.”

In 2012, Media Matters collected a number of examples of factually questionable assertions about Muslims made on Fox News, including Kilmeade’s claim that all “terrorists are Muslims.
