Orlando Imam on Fox Suggests, ‘Some Journalists Need to Be Beheaded’

A controversial imam who said he’s been subjected to false rumors amid the Orlando fallout spoke out to Greta Van Susteren tonight and made a pretty bold statement that he quickly insisted was “facetious.”

In the first segment, Imam Abu Taubah (a.k.a. Marcus Robertson) insisted that the Orlando terrorist was not part of his online school and he said that he doesn’t believe it’s proper for any Muslim to take Islamic law into their own hands.

But in the second segment, when Van Susteren brought up ISIS beheading James Foley, he said, “I believe some journalists need to be beheaded, but I wouldn’t have done that.”

Van Susteren was, of course, stunned, but he told her, “I only say that facetiously.”

She pressed him whether he’s could justify ISIS’ activities. He said he didn’t.

She asked, “Shouldn’t we stop them?” He responded, “Don’t we have our own problems here?”
