Commenting on the five U.S. military service members killed by Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez last week in Chattanooga, Tenn., Rev. Franklin Graham said we need to face up to the fact that “we are under attack by Muslims at home and abroad,” and advised that America “should stop all immigration of Muslims” into this country until the threat from radical Islam ends.
“Four innocent Marines (United States Marine Corps) killed and three others wounded in #Chattanooga yesterday [July 16] including a policeman and another Marine — all by a radical Muslim whose family was allowed to immigrate to this country from Kuwait,” said Rev. Graham in aJuly 17 post on Facebook.
“We are under attack by Muslims at home and abroad,” he said. “We should stop all immigration of Muslims to the U.S. until this threat with Islam has been settled.”
“Every Muslim that comes into this country has the potential to be radicalized — and they do their killing to honor their religion and Muhammad,” said the reverend, who is the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and also runs the international Christian relief group Samaritan’s Purse.
