Muslim Group Files FCC Complaint Against Radio Host Michael Berry

UPDATE: Michael Berry posted a statement on his radio blog: http://www.ktrh.com/pages/michaelberry.html
Former Houston City Councilman and Conservative Radio Talk Show Host Michael Berry is the focus of a complaint filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) by a Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization.
  
The Washington-based organization, Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), claims that Berry advocated bombing a proposed New York City mosque while responding to a caller on his KTRH radio show on May, 26.

I am working on getting reaction from Berry. In the meantime – you can read some of the NEWS RELEASE BELOW.

In his response to a caller named “Tony” who supported the right to build the planned mosque in New York — an effort that has come under rhetorical attack by anti-Islam extremists — Berry said: “No, no, Tony, you can’t build a mosque at the site of 9/11. No, you can’t. No, you can’t. And I’ll tell you this — if you do build a mosque, I hope somebody blows it up…I hope the mosque isn’t built, and if it is, I hope it’s blown up, and I mean that.”   

Hear Michael Berry’s Call to Violence   

[Berry has in the past been a guest host for nationally-syndicated broadcasters like Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly.]   

“Calls for acts of violence against houses of worship must never be tolerated or excused,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “We ask the FCC to demonstrate that incitement to violence is never acceptable on our nation’s airwaves.”   

He said Berry’s call to violence against an American mosque is of particular concern, coming as it does after a bombing at a mosque in Jacksonville, Fla., earlier this month.

  1. And Berry calls himself a good Christian? What a hypocrite. Do it in the name of Heaven, Michael, you can justify it in the End. There won’t be any trumpets blowing come the judgment day…
