    Former NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar continued his by-proxy debate with Fox News host Bill
    O’Reilly
    over Muslim extremist violence Sunday morning, arguing that economic and political
    disenfranchisement led to violent groups that wear a “Muslim mask.”“It feels good to just blame the
    religion,” Abdul-Jabbar said on Meet the Press. “But the causes go a lot deeper.”

    Abdul-Jabbar drew a parallel in a TIME op-ed between today’s radical violence and that of the KKK,
    which was not portrayed as an expression of Christianity, though the grip considered it to be so.
    O’Reilly responded on his show the other that if Abdul-Jabbar wants that analogy, then Muslim
    countries need to explicitly crack down on jihadist groups the way the FBI (eventually) did on the
    KKK.
