On the Sean Hannity Show (2/9/04), U.S. Representative Peter King (R.-N.Y.) told Hannity's listeners that 85 percent of mosques in America are "ruled by the extremists," constituting "an enemy living amongst us." King added that while most American Muslims were more moderate, "they don't come forward, they don't tell the police."
Hannity's remarks on the Quran came in a show (Hannity & Colmes, 11/30/06) that featured talkshow host Dennis Prager, who denounced Ellison's plans to be sworn in on the Islamic book. Hannity uncritically summarized his argument for him: "You said that his doing so will embolden Islamic extremists and make new ones, and they'll see it as the first sign and realization of a greatest goal, which is the, you know, making Islam the religion of America."
Dirty Dozen member Mark Steyn explained on Hannity & Colmes (1/30/07) that Islam was really "a political project that has opened up branch offices on just about every Main Street throughout the Western world," and which featured religious leaders interested in "overthrowing 10 Downing Street and Buckingham Palace and the White House." Hannity's response: "Well, then you have to say that that's a threat within a culture, Mark. I mean, you know, here you have a culture within a culture that's talking about destroying outside culture."
Also on Hannity & Colmes (9/18/02), Pat Robertson called Islam fraudulent and a scam, Mohammad "an absolute wild-eyed fanatic," and said that Al Qaeda was merely "carrying out Islam." Other Islamophobes that have appeared on Hannity's two shows include Ann Coulter, David Horowitz and Daniel Pipes.
