Bill O’Reilly of Fox News took to task a liberal Christian leader who used his television time to suggest that promoting peace via diplomatic discussion could go far in curbing the types of terrorism furthered by the likes of the Islamic State, telling him outright: You’re wrong.

The context of the comments came while the Rev. Jim Wallis, the founder of Sojourners magazine, claimed that faith leaders in America should reach out to Muslims and help reform their religion — that military action was not the solution to terroristic acts, Newsmax reported.

And Mr. O’Reilly’s response?

“ISIS people would behead you, your family and everybody you know, and you’d be saying, the Muslim people have got to deal with it from within,” he said. “If your philosophy was in place in World War II, we’d all be speaking German.”
