Oh, NOES! MUSLIMS demand apology after Detroit News Anchor mentions connection between ISIS and the Arab-American community in Michiganistan
So, the fact that leaders of the Islamic State (ISIS) and most of its followers are Arab Muslims is of no relevance? Wasn’t it in the Arab-American community in Dearborn that Christians and Jews were attacked and assaulted at an Arab street festival, which resulted in the festival being shut down for good?
Gateway Pundit (h/t Rob E) Detroit TV anchor Carmen Harlen angered perpetually-angry Muslims after her comments on ISIS in a report this week.
The Lebanese Examiner reported: WDIV-TV Local 4 news anchor Carmen Harlan upset many Michigan Muslims after making a comment on the state’s alleged ties to ISIS during a broadcast on the Detroit NBC affiliate on Wednesday.
When asked about a possible “ISIS threat in Michigan”, Harlan said “given the fact that we have the largest Arab population outside of the Middle East, I guess this should not come as a real surprise.”
Many Arab organizations have voiced concern over Harlan’s comments, urging the TV station to apologize.
“This shocking lapse of professional conduct was directed against law-abiding citizens who strive to create vibrant, diverse communities wherever they live,” said Fatina Abdrabboh, director of the Michigan American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.
