Here Are Some Better Questions': Glenn Beck Challenges CNN's Questions on Islam, Offers His Own

"It does seem like it's every day, doesn't it?"

Glenn Beck took issue with CNN's question and answer article about Islam Tuesday evening during The Glenn Beck Program, ultimately offering the news organization "some better questions."

Glenn Beck discussing his questions about radical Islam on "The Glenn Beck Program" Nov. 17.

The article in question offers up seven inquiries into the Islamic faith in the wake of last week's terror attacks in Paris, France.

1. Does Islam encourage violence?

2. Why have there been so many recent attacks by extremist Muslims?

3. How do many Muslims feel right now?

4. Does Islam really ban all images of the Prophet Mohammed?

5. Why is Mohammed so important to Muslims?

6. Does Islam need a Reformation?

7. How can the extremists be stopped?

Though Beck discussed all seven of CNN's questions, it was question No. 3 — "How do many Muslims feel right now?" — that served as the tipping point for the show host, leading him ultimately to ask the question, "I wonder if CNN could ask how those people feel?"

According to CNN's undisclosed Muslim-American source, "Muslims cannot get a break. Every (expletive) day there must be an event to suggest Islam is inherently violent. Such acts destroy years of goodwill and work about Islam."

The article claims that most Muslims feel "frustrated" with the perceptions some have of the Islamic faith after attacks like the one in Paris last week. The article says that the "implication that all Muslims shoulder the blame for terroristic attacks" compounds the frustration.

"I think, CNN, that's the wrong question," Beck said. "Here are some better questions."

Beck went on to list the types of questions he feels the network should be asking.

1. How do the people of Paris feel?

2. How do the people of NYC feel?

3. How do the people of Iraq and Syria feel?

4. How do the families of the Coptic Christians who were beheaded feel?

5. How do the families of the passengers of the Russian airliner feel? 

6. How do the families of the victims of the bombings in Beirut feel? 

7. How do the families of the 147 killed in Kenya feel?

8. How do the families of the 67 killed in the Nairobi mall massacre feel? 

Beck conceded that many Muslims likely are frustrated, but challenged the quote from CNN's Muslim-American source, contending that if atrocities carried out by radical Islamists are "happening everyday," there might be a "problem" with the Islamic faith.

"It does seem like it's every day, doesn't it?" Beck said. "Isn't it reasonable — seeing that it is happening almost every day — to conclude that there might be a problem, indeed, with Islam?"
