"All terrorists are Muslims" remark 
In a follow-up discussion to Bill O'Reilly's appearance on The View on October 14, 2010 — in which Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walked off after O'Reilly said that people did not want a mosque built at Ground Zero because "...Muslims killed us on 9/11" — Kilmeade dismissed the View debate as "elementary" and said:
They were outraged that somebody was saying ...
|“||There was a certain group of people that attacked us on 9/11. It wasn't just one person, it was one religion. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.||”|
Back on his radio show Monday, Mr. Kilmeade said,
|“||What I should have said, and I’d like to clarify, is all terrorists who killed us on 9/11; with the Cole; and the Khobar; and the ‘98 embassies; that’s what I should have said.||”|
