Steven Emerson - who is the founder and Executive Director of The Investigative Project on Terrorism - had this to say when he appeared live on air :
"And in Britain, it's not just no-go zones, there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don't go in.
Which must be news to the 46% of Birmingham's population who are Christian and the 19% that identify as non-religious.
And Steven also had some thoughts on London:
"And parts of London, there are actually Muslim religious police that actually beat and actually wound seriously anyone who doesn't dress according to Muslim, religious Muslim attire.
"So there's a situation that Western Europe is not dealing with."
Emerson has since issued an unequivocal apology for his misguided statements:
But the apology came too late for Twitter where users wasted no time in mocking Fox News with the #FoxNewsFacts:
The original name of the show was MiddleEastEnders. The BBC dropped the "Middle" to conceal its creeping sharia agenda. #foxnewsfacts— Dan Murphy (@bungdan) January 11, 2015
