NEW YORK, (AP) – Fox News Channel host Brian Kilmeade is apologizing for saying on the air that “all terrorists are Muslim.”

Kilmeade, a host of the “Fox & Friends” morning show, said Monday that he misspoke Friday when he and his colleagues were discussing an appearance of Fox’s Bill O’Reilly on “The View” last week. O’Reilly said “Muslims killed us on 9/11” and “View” hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg walked off the set in objection. They returned after O’Reilly apologized and after being chastised by colleague Barbara Walters for leaving.

Kilmeade said “not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslim.”

On Monday, Kilmeade said on Fox that “I don’t believe all terrorists are Muslims. I’m sorry. I’m sorry about that if I offended … or hurt anybody’s feelings. But that’s it.”
