NPR analyst fired over Muslim comment - CNN.com

NPR analyst fired over Muslim comment - CNN.com

National Public Radio said it terminated the contract of a news analyst after he said on a Fox News show that he gets nervous when he sees people with Muslim garb on planes.

Juan Williams had worked at NPR for a long time, but his other job as an analyst on the "largely conservative and often contentious prime time talk shows of Fox News has long been a sore point with NPR News executives."

I've never been a Williams fan, but I think this is wrong...we can openly pound other ethnic groups, even threaten to strip them of there citizenship, but we walk on egg shells when it comes to our Muslim brothers.

I was having dinner at a restaurant with some friends...when a Muslim women walked in with a backpack on her back. The busy restaurant went completely silent...you could her a pin drop. My point is that many feel like Williams, is it wrong ?
