Beckel: Killing of Christians in Iraq is 'Ethnic Cleansing'

Fox News Channel's "The Five" co-host Bob Beckel on Thursday reiterated his call for moderate Muslims to condemn terrorism, calling the Christmas Day al-Qaida bombings in Iraq "ethnic cleansing."

At least 37 were killed in the Baghdad attacks on Christian areas, including a church service.

"Good for you, brave boys," Beckel, the discussion show's resident liberal, said.

"Once again, very little comment from the so-called moderate Muslims after yet another slaughter on one of the holiest days of the year for Christians," Beckel said. "When will you ever wake up and finally recognize that we have a right to have our religion?"

It's not the first time Beckel has slammed what he terms "so-called moderate Muslims" for not condemning Muslim extremists. In April, he called for a suspension of new visas for Muslim college students.

In September, he called for an end to new mosques in the United States and earlier this month he said "the only thing that's growing in Detroit are Muslims."
