By Brad Wilmouth, Newsbusters

On Monday’s MSNBC Live with Dan Abrams, host and MSNBC General Manager Abrams attacked CNN’s series God’s Warriors for “a defense of Islamic fundamentalism and the worst type of moral relativism,” and as “shameful advocacy masked as journalism,” quipping that series host Christiane Amanpour “avoided getting bogged down in objectivity.”

Abrams further took exception with Amanpour for comparing those who support Israel’s defense strategy to Muslim terrorists: “Christians and Jews, for example, who support Israel’s strategy for self-defense are just as much God’s warriors, according to Amanpour, as the Islamic radicals who blow themselves and others up in an effort to destroy the world as we know it.” (Transcript follows)
