Harsh remarks concerning traditional Muslim brutality have led the Asian American Journalists Association to call for an apology from the the Fox News Network.
The organization was upset at comments made by “The Five” co-host Andrea Tantaros during a discussion of the bestial behavior of ISIS militants. Following previous comments that Muslim zealots had historically engaged in beheadings, and that James Foley’s murder was nothing uncommon, she said, “You can’t solve it with a dialogue. You can’t solve it with a summit. You solve it with a bullet to the head. It’s the only thing these people understand.”
That drew quick responses in the Twittersphere from AAJA members, and contrary reactions from people who believe she scored a bulls-eye, as reported on Twitchy.
