Bob Beckel, resident liberal on Fox News Channel's "The Five," has one regular argument that likely makes his fellow progressives want to disassociate themselves from him: He wants to keep Muslims from coming into the country or building new mosques in the United States until moderate Muslims denounce terrorism.
He repeated the call on Monday's episode, saying "I will repeat what I said before: No Muslim students coming here with visas. No more mosques being built here until you stand up and denounce what's happened in the name of your prophet."
If Muslims in the United States and around the world don't stand up, Beckel said, "you're cowards."
Usually, Beckel apologizes on the show the day after making the statement. Not this time.
"I did hear, though, finally, somebody in the Muslim world stood up and said this is a bad thing," Beckel said Tuesday. "That was some cleric out of Saudi Arabia. I applaud him, now where are the other 100 million of you?"
"100 million?" co-host Eric Bolling asked. "How about 1.3 billion?"
"I mean the 100 million who are terrorists," Beckel answered. "It's 10 percent, right?"
Beckel noted that the Koran says innocents, especially women and children, should not be killed. That rule wasn't followed in the Nairobi mall attack, he said.
"I assume that they're going against their own religion," he said, "and if that's the case, why don't you kick 'em all out?"
