Ron Cantor of Charisma News strongly disagrees with Banfield's statement.
"First," says Cantor
, "there is no Jewish Terror problem in the U.S.
refers to the group, the Jewish Defense League
(JDL) and then compares this tiny fringe group that hasn't done anything in 15 years to the present threat of Radical Islam in the U.S."
goes on to break down and refute Banfield's assertion, stating that "Far less than 1% of Israelis embrace such acts [of terror].
However 7-15% of Muslims are radicals or 100,000,000 to 200,000,000!!!"
Cantor further notes that Israelis do not have any prominent radical groups such as al-Qaeda, ISIS, Hamas, or Hezbollah.
In a direct address to the news anchor, Cantor
says, "And Ashleigh, before you ignorantly say that Israel is the Jewish version of ISIS
, let me remind you that Israel has given back to Arabs more territory (after winning them when attacked by Arabs) than the total of her
calls on CNN
to suspend Banfield for her false claim and inappropriate comparison.
