From the March 22 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor:

BILL O'REILLY (HOST): Do you believe that critical mass has been reached in Europe? You've got a flood of refugees, most of them Muslim, many of them young men. They're dominating certain neighborhoods. Everybody's on edge. Is there any new action that you think is going to be taken?

ALLAN HALL: Do you mean in terms of combatting them or that terrorists are going to make? I certainly think there will be more terrorist outrages in Europe, because the security services --

O'REILLY: But the folks, how are the folks reacting to being under siege by this jihad? How are they reacting to it?

HALL: No. I don't think Europeans feel under siege at all. I think they're quite resilient. I think every time they detonate a bomb, or every time they fire an AK-47, they feel stronger. They feel you can't do this to our lives. We will live our lives as we did before, and that's all right and proper. But on the other side of the coin is that the security services do say that we should expect more terrorism, that there is a corporation of terrorism, that the jihadists have a cell structure in place. When I arrived in Brussels today, I had to drive from Berlin, which is 500 miles because there were no trains and there were no planes. All the roads were choked with police, they were choked with army lorries. And, you know, they are determined to combat these people, but they do think that this is not the end of it. ISIS has to be defeated, we know that. But how that defeat is brought about, I don't think anyone knows that answer.

O'REILLY: Is there a call for direct military action against ISIS?

HALL: Not that I've heard so far. Everybody thinks that boots on the ground, as you say in America, will be an incitement to more Islamic terrorism anywhere in the world.


HALL: Another recruiting call for more people to go and join them.
