The View and Bill O'Reilly

After guest Bill O'Reilly declared "Muslims killed us on 9/11," Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg, co-hosts of the ABC daytime talk show, stormed off the set.

It happened as O'Reilly was discussing President Obama's stance on Park51, the Muslim community center that is slated to be built two blocks from ground zero in Manhattan.

Burning the Quran?

A Christian minister plans to burn copies of the Quran this weekend to protest the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks despite a warning from the top U.S. general in Afghanistan that doing so would endanger American troops. (FULL STORY)

     

Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center said he understands Gen. David Petraeus' concerns, but plans to go forward with the burning this Saturday, the ninth anniversary of the attacks.

 

The Quran, according to Jones, is "evil" because it espouses something other than the Christian biblical truth and incites radical, violent behavior among Muslims.

 

He left the door open to change his mind, however, saying that he is still praying about his decision.

Is America Growing Islamaphobic?

Tuesday's attack on a Muslim cab driver has added to the increasing concerns that America is becoming Islamaphobic.

Governor Paterson said on WOR-AM this morning that the cabby attack and the increasing heated debate of the proposed mosque and Islamic Center near ground zero is just what the terrorists wanted when they attacked on 9/11.

"An incident like this, where a taxi driver almost lost his life should certainly compel us to remembering," Paterson said  "This is what the terrorists really want. This is the terrorists getting a yield on their investment when they attacked this country and blew up the World Trade Center, that we're now fighting each other. This is making their day."
