On October 4, 2002 The Anti-Defamation League issued a press release that "strongly condemned Rev. Jerry Falwell’s statement that the Prophet Mohammed 'was a terrorist' and called on him to apologize to the followers of Islam. Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement: The Rev. Jerry Falwell has once again demonstrated his intolerance by his outrageous charge about the Prophet Mohammed. He owes an apology to the millions of good people who follow the Muslim faith. As a man of the cloth, he should be working toward bringing faith communities closer together, not driving wedges through them."
