Mike Ghouse on O’Reilly Factor,  Fox News tonight with Laura Ingram at 8:00 PM
EST about the offensive poster. ‘Offensive to Muslims’: Mike Ghouse and Dem
congressman Jim McDermott calls on FBI to take down photos of terrorists.

Mike Ghouse to FBI on Fox News –  “Robert Mueller, take that poster down”
The O’Reilly Factor – Laura Ingraham – Mike Ghouse 6/21/2013
First of all, as a
society, we have a responsibility to keep law and order and faithfully
guard the safety of every citizen. Hate is one of the many sources of
disrupting the peace in a society and it is our duty to track down the source
of such hate and mitigate the conflicts and nurture goodwill.  
FBI routinely posts the
pictures of  the wanted terrorists in the
post offices and public places, and even displayed on TV networks – so, if
people spot them, they can report.

Look at the stupidity of FBI – these terrorists are not in America, how will an
American ever spot these dudes? That ad should be posted in Yemen, Saudi Arabia
and Afghanistan, not here in America. That is waste of tax payer dollars.

Poster on Seattle Bus- needs to come down

The 2nd
Mistake is. Terrorists come in all colors, religions and races – to place the
Muslim ones exclusively is damn stereotyping and a cause of hatred and
disruption. This ad has got to go.

No American has to live in tension, apprehensions and fear of the other, that is the kind of cohesive America we want to build.

I had warned Fox news right here on September
and again on October 8,  in two
different appearances (
 that the posters in the New York subway
by Pamela Geller was dangerous
to fellow Americans, particularly Muslim women wearing a scarf, Catholic women
coming from a Church, Sikh Women, the older Hindu women with part of the Saree
covering their head, the Non-Muslim women from Africa donning their cultural
headdress. Does the city have a role in imbuing a sense of security in her
people, or each citizen is on his or her own? Did you know a Hindu man was
killed on the subway on mistaken Identity, is the security of that person means
nothing? Who is responsible for the death of that individual?

I am proud of Congressman, Jim McDermott from Washington State to work against
stereotyping any one. The Daily Caller reports the following:

McDermott, a Democrat from
Washington state, voiced his “deep concern” about the ad, which shows mug
shots of international terrorists, and asked the FBI chief to “reconsider
publicizing” it.

 According to McDermott, the “ad featuring sixteen photos of
wanted terrorists is not only offensive to Muslims and ethnic minorities, but
it encourages racial and religious profiling.”
 McDermott continued, “Representing terrorists, however,
from only one ethnic or religious group, promotes stereotypes and ignores other
forms of extremism. The FBI’s ‘Most Wanted Terrorists List‘ includes individuals of other
races and associated with other religions and causes, but their faces are
missing from this campaign.”
