Fox News commentator, Steven Emerson, has again apologised to the city of Birmingham, UK. Having previously apologised for the factually inaccurate statement that Birmingham was a "Muslim-only city", Emerson has today issued a statement apologising to "the beautiful city of Birmingham".
Local religious leaders in Birmingham have condemned Emerson and the remarks. One said "my religious beliefs require me to find forgiveness in my heart for his comments but I am really questioning my beliefs after what he said - I mean, as if Birmingham is a beautiful city. He's really taking the p*ss there."
Birmingham is renowned the world over for
- having the highest proportion of concrete to humans at over six tonnes per person
- being entirely Muslim - even the pavements and lampposts are Muslim
Birmingham recently made the news worldwide when its famous Spaghetti Junction was demolished and rebuilt using only halal bolognaise sauce.
