NPR fires Juan Williams for remarks opposing jihad.

NPR fired Juan Williams, one of its senior news analysts, after he made comments opposing jihad and linking it with Muslims on the Fox News Channel.

NPR said in a statement that it gave Mr. Williams notice of his termination on 20 October.

The move came after Mr. Williams, who is also a Fox News political analyst, appeared on the “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday. On the show, the host, Bill O’Reilly, asked him to respond to the notion that the United States was facing a “Muslim dilemma.” Mr. O’Reilly said, “The cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet.”

Mr. Williams said he concurred with Mr. O’Reilly.

He continued: “I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”

Mr. Williams also made reference to the Pakistani immigrant who pleaded guilty this month to trying to plant a car bomb in Times Square. “He said the war with Muslims, America’s war is just beginning, first drop of blood. I don’t think there’s any way to get away from these facts,” Mr. Williams said.

NPR said in its statement that the remarks “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.”


NPR, which claims to be a non-profit, unaligned network in the public interest, regularly features Islamic-oriented newscasts, opinion pieces and dysinformation broadcasts. It masquerades as objective. However, it’s objectivity does not extend to Islam and the enemies of Israel or the West.

It delights in broadcasting the suffering of the Palestinians while remaining silent or condemnatory on Jews. Ironically, many of its top broadcasters are self-hating Jews.

It daily mentions its “sponsors” in detail while denying it does advertising. It is consistently on the left when it comes to its opinions.

NPR does not deserve your support. Let your local non-profit stations know your opinions.  WAMU in Washington, DC is conducting its regular fund-raising drive. Deny them the money they seek as long as they broadcast NPR.

We call on our readers to separate NPR from its affiliate stations.

If necessary, shut down the affiliates. Turn them into other stations that are no longer broadcasting propaganda.

NPR is nothing without its affiliates.

    NPR is nothing but a stooge for George Soros now since ole’ George has bought into this media outlet and controls the purse strings. Juan, being a liberal BUT a Fox News contributor was “expendable”. Hey Juan, how’s your socialism doing now. Maybe the “View” will hire you and you can support Obama on that whacky channel.

    I think you were wrong in firing Juan Williams. He has integrity and I watch Fox News regular. I beleive in Free Speech and this is censorship of the worse kind. We do not have to agree or like what someone says but in America, they should have the right to say it! NPR should lose thier funding over this.

    Why I’d rather fly El Al if I were Juan Williams

    Juan, I really like you as much as I liked
    the 20th century,
    well, parts of it, the protests and demonstrations against
    Vietnam, the Civil Right movement, so necessary and so uniquely American

    we’ve forgotten how much difference it made.
    Of course, I won’t ever forget
    its lynchings and its KKK, mostly killed now,
    as organizations go.

    Maybe, Juan, I liked you more than the 20th century,
    its Stalin and Hitler, its Farakhan and Arafat.
    As a Jew, I learned from the 20th century
    who my friends are.

    If I were on a plane flying through that century with you, Juan,
    I’d share the same misgivings
    without second thoughts about profiling. Just think what I might have prevented
    in the 21st.
