On The War Room, Jim Quinn said: "We either wipe this scourge from the face of the Earth -- 'Well, you just can't say that, because there's a lot of peaceful Muslims out there.' Well, there was a lot of Germans that weren't Nazis either, but we still bombed Dresden. We either wipe this scourge from the face of the Earth, or we will be doomed to live under it."

On the December 1 broadcast of The War Room with Quinn & Rose, while reading from a blog post by London Spectator columnist Melanie Phillips that discussed the recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India, co-host Jim Quinn said: "We either wipe this scourge from the face of the Earth -- 'Well, you just can't say that, because there's a lot of peaceful Muslims out there.' Well, there was a lot of Germans that weren't Nazis either, but we still bombed Dresden. We either wipe this scourge from the face of the Earth, or we will be doomed to live under it."

Quinn continued: "We have the technology. Do we have the spine? Don't answer that if you have trouble sleeping, OK?"

As Media Matters for America documented, Quinn said on October 29: "There's only one way to settle the Palestine -- the Palestine issue," and that "is to level it and then salt the earth so that nothing grows for a thousand years, because that's how the Muslims would have treated each other, and did."

Talkers Magazine lists Quinn & Rose among its "Heavy Hundred," which it describes as the "100 most important radio talk show hosts in America." According to the show's website, it airs on 18 radio stations and XM Satellite Radio.

From the December 1 broadcast of Clear Channel's The War Room with Quinn & Rose:

QUINN: Now this from the London Spectator. The London Spectator. Melanie Phillips commenting, of course, on the atrocities in Mumbai that took place while we were on Thanksgiving break here.

[...]

QUINN: "The Islamists showed a degree of organization and coordination which is much more akin to a commando raid by an army than an act of terrorism. They have the capacity not merely to commit mass murder but to cause mortal damage to a country's economy. Now, if they can do this in Mumbai, they can do it in London or other British cities. The infrastructure of Islamist terror is more extensively developed in Britain, and the authorities there are more paralyzed in the face of what they have allowed to grow in their midst, and now they don't know how to back out of it. And yet the West is still out there scratching its head."

"Duh, which way did he go, George? What happened? Where's all these peaceful Muslims?" Excuse me, she's right. And instead of scratching our heads, we will soon be distracted by licking our wounds. We either wipe this scourge from the face of the Earth -- "Well, you just can't say that, because there's a lot of peaceful Muslims out there." Well, there was a lot of Germans that weren't Nazis either, but we still bombed Dresden.

We either wipe this scourge from the face of the Earth, or we will be doomed to live under it. We have the technology. Do we have the spine? Don't answer that if you have trouble sleeping, OK?
