‘Duck Dynasty’ star on Islamic State: Convert ’em or kill ’em
First Published Sep 03 2014 11:00 am • Last Updated Sep 03 2014 11:00 am

You knew "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson, who says he never goes anywhere without his Bible or his "woman" (wife "Miss Kay"), would bring a fresh perspective on what to do about the Islamic State terrorists.

Robertson talked to Sean Hannity on Tuesday about the beheading of two journalists by the Islamic State and offered his solutions for how to handle it.

"Why is it when we’re not even over there in the Middle East, why do they continue to slaughter each other?" asked Robertson.

He went on the Fox News show to talk about his new book, "UnPHILtered," but addressed the news first. After citing some Bible passages, Robertson told Hannity his view of the situation.

"In this case you have to convert them, which I think would be next to impossible. I’m not giving up on them. I’m just saying convert them or kill them. One or the other."

Robertson said the Islamic State is like "street gangs, street thugs on steroids."

He added that it’s not like battling a "standing country with an army. This is more like worldwide gang warfare. My opinion is we’re going to have to deal with this group way more harshly than we have up to this point."

But the reality star’s first choice for handling the Islamic State terrorists would be Jesus.

"I’d much rather have a Bible study with all of them and show them the error of their ways and point them to Jesus Christ," Robertson said. "However, if it’s a gunfight and a gunfight alone, if that’s what they’re looking for, me personally, I am prepared for either one."
