A representative from an Islamic advocacy group and a human rights attorney engaged in an explosive debate on “The Kelly Files” Tuesday over whether the film “Honor Diaries” is Islamophobic.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations, known as CAIR, has been exerting intense political pressure to cancel scheduled screenings of “Honor Diaries,” depicting practices in Muslim countries, described in the film as “systematic, institutionalized misogyny.”
Agnieszka Karoluk, representing CAIR-Chicago, was unable to dispute the film’s claims after being challenged by Fox News Megyn Kelly, but instead found fault with its producers, the Clarion Project.
“[It’s] a well-known, Islamophobic organization,” she claimed. “What I’m personally disgusted by as a Muslim woman, as a feminist is that someone like the Clarion Project would take this film and use it to promote their own hate-filled agenda.”
Human rights attorney Brooke Goldstein countered that “CAIR is obviously protesting the content of the film,” and said CAIR’s position was “indefensible,” calling CAIR “the PR arm of the Muslim Brotherhood.” She added, “If CAIR doesn’t want you to see it, you should take it a a cue to go out and watch this movie, because you know there’s truth contained therein.”
The back-and-forth between the two women is fascinating, with Goldstein delivering the more debilitating blows.
Kelly jumped in and remarked that CAIR demanded a retraction of her Monday night segment covering the same film. “Well guess what — you’re not getting it,” she said.
