BECKEL: If I can make a point here. The two publications that have had direct results with their work, murder, were both liberal newspapers or magazines in France and in Denmark.

GUTFELD: Right. True, right.

BECKEL: It's been the left, frankly, in Europe that have been willing to stand up and say something. The conservatives turned their tail and run. But, having said that, have you noticed that poll in France that young people were much more predisposed toward radical Islam than older people? I think it's sort of like in the United States where younger people today, it's not at all unusual for people to see multicultural dating, for example. Back when I was young you didn't date out of your own ethnicity. But in Europe and other places, this mingling that's going on here, younger people are beginning to find this acceptable. And that's the thing that is sort of scary because they're getting exposed to it on a daily basis.

GUTFELD: I don't know if you can compare affection for radicalization to mixed dating. You don't mean that.

BECKEL: I didn't mean that.

GUILFOYLE: No. I think he messed up.

BECKEL: It was a stretch but I was trying to find something we could relate to.
