Will Brian Kilmeade Continue To Accept Funds From “Radical Madrassa Funder”

On Monday’s Fox & Friends (8/23/10), in yet another attack discussion about the so-called “ground zero mosque,” Brian Kilmeade and guest Dan Senor used Saudi Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal, described as a funder of “radical madrassas all over the world” to tarnish Dr. Feisal Abdul Rauf, the imam of the proposed mosque, because Prince Al-Waleed also “funds this imam.” Well, guess what? Al-Waleed also funds Kilmeade’s salary.

The exchange begins at about the 2:50 mark in the video below.

Kilmeade: "What could you tell me about this Imam - we had Walid Shoebat who joined us earlier reading his text from Arabic, translated it - he sounds very inflammatory. The words in English, not a problem - the translation seems to be a problem." Senor: "Which is extremely common with a number of these leaders from the Muslim world who are supported by organizations like the Kingdom Foundation which has been a funder of Imam Rauf in the past. The Kingdom Foundation, so you know, is this Saudi organization headed up by the guy who tried to give Rudy Giuliani 10 million dollars after 9/11 that was sent back. He funds radical madrassas all over the world." Kilmeade: "And he funds this Imam." Senor: "Right. And this is very common - when they're in the West, they say very positive and sort of constructive things. When they're abroad, the tone is much different."

Hmm, isn’t this Kingdom Foundation "guy" who Senor was referring to Saudi Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal, whose Kingdom Holding Company includes the Al-Waleed Bin Talal Foundation? The very same Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal who is the second largest shareholder in News Corp, the parent company of FOX News? Notice how none of the three on the curvy couch offered up full disclosure about this "guy.”

If Kilmeade, along with his pals Steve Doocy and Gretchen Carlson, plus colleagues Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham, were good Americans, they'd quit their jobs in protest, right? LOL!
