The host, Youssef Al-Husseini, asserted that no one should be surprised by the attack, since Muslims have contributed “nothing” to the West but terrorism.
His comments aired on Egypt’s ON TV on the day of the attack and were translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
“Why do they hate us?! If they didn’t, there would be something mentally wrong with them.” Claiming that the Muslims have contributed nothing to the West except slaughter, massacres, and terror attacks, and you still expect them to love us?!” said Al-Husseini.
“The terror attack that unfortunately took place [in London] was a vehicular attack. This time, it was near a mosque, if you follow the news. How can anyone decide to carry out a terror attack near a place of worship – near a mosque, a church, or any temple where God is worshipped? In all the previous vehicular attacks, at least in 2016 and 2017, the ‘heroes’ were, unfortunately, Muslims. And then people wonder why they hate us. Why do they hate us?! If they didn’t, there would be something mentally wrong with them,” he continued.
“[We] use weapons all the time, slaughter people all the time, flay people all the time, burn people alive all the time, run people over all the time, and plant explosive devices and car bombs all the time. Why do you still expect them to love you?”
“What have the Muslims shown [the West] other than the bombing of their capital cities? What have the Muslims shown them other than vehicular attacks? What have the Muslims shown them other than shooting at them? What have the Muslims shown them other than burning them alive in cages? They burn other Muslims alive as well. They all claim to have a monopoly over Islam. What have the Muslims shown [the Westerners] to make them love them, and welcome them in their countries?” continued the host.
“After all this, you still ask me why they hate us?! And then people invent new terms, like ‘a global conspiracy against Islam.’ Man, a global conspiracy against Islam would mean that the Muslims are being massacred around the world. The opposite is true. It is the non-Muslims who are being massacred. Am I right, or what? Then you say to me: Have you considered the Muslim minorities in India or Mali? To tell you the truth, what I see is Muslims perpetrating massacres against Christians and other majorities across the globe,” he said.
