During an interview with Fox News about his new book, "Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth," host Lauren Green repeatedly questioned why Aslan would write a book about Christianity if he is Muslim, even though Aslan clearly noted that he is a scholar with a Ph.D in the history of religion.
Not a second after Aslan sat down on the "Daily Show," Stewart got right to it.
"I just want to be clear, you're a Muslim right?" he said, mocking the Fox News host. "Why would you write a book on the founder of Christianity?"
"This is my secret Muslim plan to destroy Christianity," Aslan joked.
Stewart just couldn't help himself:
"I don't know if you remember this-- you went on Fox and that lady was asking you those questions and I was just watching that like, 'OH MY GOD! REZA’S GOING TO STRANGLE THIS PERSON!'" he shouted.
