Bob Beckel, the liberal co-host of Fox News’ “The Five,” on Tuesday said that if it were up to him, there would not be any new mosques built in the U.S. until “we got it worked out who was not a terrorist.”
He was reacting to a story about a radical Islamic group called Boko Haram, a militant group suspected of killing dozens of children at a school in Nigeria recently.
“These guys are murderers. They’re terrorists. And if this is what the prophet told you to do, then the prophet was wrong,” Beckel said.
Remembering the outrage that ensued when he suggested that the U.S. temporary suspend student visas from Muslim countries in response to the Boston Bombing, Beckel took it even further.
“Now I’ve already gotten enough mail from you all, you don’t like what I say about not letting your students come here,” he began. “If it were up to me, I would not have another mosque built in this country until we got it worked out who was not a terrorist.”
