Cenk Uygur, the far-left co-founder of the popular Young Turks YouTube page, appeared on a counter-extremism panel this week and claimed that Christianity is responsible for perpetrating that Holocaust.
Uygur made the anti-Christian comments while “moderating” a panel at the WebSummit, an annual tech conference based in Europe. He was joined on the panel by Muslim Reform Movement leader Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, along with two liberal terrorism researchers.
Dr. Jasser, a Muslim, stressed the need for a global Islamic reformation, one that preaches tolerance and a more secular way of life. He urged co-panelists not to coddle Muslims and to recognize the threat posed by global jihadist groups motivated by political Islam.
Seemingly offended by Jasser’s remarks, Uygur fired back, defending Islam as a whole and targeting Christianity.
American Islamic Forum for Democracy's M Zuhdi Jasser, The Khalifa Ihler Institute's Bjorn Ihler, Institute for Strategic Dialogue Sasha Havlicek & The Young Turks' Cenk Uygur:Acts of terror are increasingly dominating our airwaves and newsfeeds, but media coverage of terror is not always consistent. What narrative do we choose to construct around these attacks, and is it hindering our efforts to tackle terrorist violence?
