John Deady (co-chairman for Rudy Giuliani’s veterans’ coalition) statements on "Muslims"

John Deady, the co-chairman for Rudy Giuliani’s veterans’ coalition in New Hampshire has resigned after making statements about Muslims when he was quoted as saying that “We need to keep the feet to the fire and keep pressing these people until we defeat or chase them back to their caves — or in other words get rid of them.”

When pressed about it later, Deady remarked:  “I’ve been very concerned about this Muslim thing for quite awhile. The average American does not know beans about what the Muslims are about. I am talking about the Muslims in general. I don’t subscribe to the principle that there are good Muslims and bad Muslims. They’re all Muslims.”

In the original Guardian interview, Deady said about Giuliani that he is the best candidate to handle “one of the most difficult problems in current history” — “the rise of the Muslims.”

  • Assalamu Alaikum,

    I was raised around people with similar mindsets -closed to say the least- for most of my life. Comments and feelings like that come from society, the way you are raised, a lack of knowledge about aspects of the world around you, and many times from a fear of the unknown. Many people are lacking in their knowledge of other cultures and beliefs, but they also have no inclination to change.

    I would say education is the key, but people must be willing to listen in order to learn.
