Megyn Kelly Faults CAIR For Quashing Film On ‘Honor Violence’

 

 

 

 

 

 

” For two nights running, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly criticized efforts by  the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to impede screenings –on university campuses and elsewhere – of a film about “honor violence” against Muslim women.

  Kelly last night questioned CAIR Chicago representative Agnieszka Karoluk on “The Kelly File” about the group’s opposition to “Honor Diaries,”  a documentary that addresses abuses  such as female genital mutilation, forced marriages, and the oppression of women in Muslim society – what one commentator in the film calls “systematic, institutionalized misogyny.”

  Karoluk, herself a Muslim woman, said that although CAIR  doesn’t oppose raising awareness, the source of funding for the film, the Clarion Project, is “Islamophobic.”  The film’s backers, she said, “use it to promote their own hate-filled agenda.”

  Human rights lawyer Brooke Goldstein disputed Karoluk’s claim on air, calling CAIR “the Islamic speech police” and saying the group works to silence awareness of women’s rights violations in the Muslim world.”
