Rula Jebreal: Carson, Trump, And Cruz ‘Will Have Blood On Their Hands’ If Someone Shoots Up Mosque

Foreign policy analyst and author Rula Jebreal argued Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump, Dr. Ben Carson, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz “will have blood on their hands” if someone shoots people inside a mosque on Monday’s “CNN Tonight.”

After hearing Carson’s business manager Armstrong Williams stating that the media and other Muslims should engage in more denunciation of the actions of Islamic extremists, Jebreal stated, “I don’t know where he’s living. I don’t know what television he’s watching, but he is in total denial. Not only that, he’s talking about crimes committed in Iran and Saudi Arabia. What [do] Muslims in America have to do with that? Why [do] they need to be criminalized because of that? Would we ever accept a presidential candidate that would apply the same rules, would say the same thing about Jews and black[s]? We would never tolerate them, would never respect them, would never even accept them, we [would] shun them aside. But we accept it against Muslims, because, sadly, in the Republican base, this is what is appealing to them today.”

She continued, “What happened with Trump, the — we are discussing the first part of what was said, and Trump endorsed, which is we have a problem called Muslims. But there’s a second part, how to get rid of them. And in the realm of possibility, in a country that is very armed, that somebody, that will be carrying [a] weapon will go to a mosque tomorrow, or after tomorrow, and will start shooting people, and then these people will have blood on their hands, all of them. Carson, Trump, and Ted Cruz.”
