Nadine Al-Budair made three-minute speech on Saudi Arabian news show
Urges fellow Muslims to admit that terrorists are not a rarity in their religion
Once wrote that Muslims should stop blaming West for their problems
A newsreader interrupted her own broadcast to urge fellow Muslims to feel ‘shame’ over terrorist atrocities like the Brussels and Paris attacks.
Nadine Al-Budair made a three-minute speech during a show on a Saudi Arabian news channel where she told her fellow Muslims to stop ‘shredding their conscience’.
The broadcaster begged Muslims to take responsibility for the terrorists in their midst instead of suggesting that they were simply a ‘rarity’.
She said: ‘Whenever terrorism massacres peaceful civilians, the smart alecs and the hypocrites vie with one another in saying that these people do not represent Islam or the Muslims.
‘Perhaps one of them could tell us who does represent Islam and the Muslims.’
She goes on to add: ‘It is we who blow ourselves up. It is we who blow up others.
‘Why do we shed our own conscience?
‘Don’t these perpetrators emerge from our environment? Don’t their families belong to our society?
‘After the abominable Brussels bombings, it’s time for us to feel shame and to stop acting as if the terrorists are a rarity.
Al-Budair said Muslims must take responsibility for the actions of extremists in light of atrocities such as those in Paris and Brussels
This is not the first time that Al-Budair has spoken out, she previously wrote in a newspaper column that Muslims should stop blaming the Western world for their problems.

Nadine halted the news programme to deliver the powerful address
‘We must admit that they are present everywhere, that their nationality is Arab and that they adhere to the religion of Islam.
‘We must acknowledge that we are the ones who gave birth to them.’
Previously Al-Budair has critcised Muslims in her column for a Kuwaiti newspaper, telling them to stop blaming the West for their problems.
Nadine says terrorists are ‘no longer a rarity’
She wrote: ‘It is strange that we condemn instead of apologising to the world.
‘It is strange that we condemn instead of addressing what is happening in our midst.’
