Rep. Peter King: We'll Investigate Muslim Radicalization

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) says he will hold hearings in Congress next year on the “radicalization” of Muslim communities.

Republican Rep. Peter King of New York plans to hold hearings in Congress next year on the “radicalization” of Muslim communities, his office confirmed to the Hotsheet.

As first reported by the New York Times, King is planning to hold the hearings once he takes up the chairmanship of the House Homeland Security Committee. He says the hearings are planned in response to complaints from law enforcement officials that Muslim leaders have been uncooperative in terror investigations.

“When I meet with law enforcement, they are constantly telling me how little cooperation they get from Muslim leaders,” King told the Times. “It is controversial. But to me, it is something that has to be discussed.”

The hearings come at a time of increased concerns about “homegrown” Muslim terrorists – along with persistent fears that innocent Muslims have been unfairly targeted since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Muslim leaders told the Times they have strong concerns about King’s proposed hearings.


Wild Thing's comment......

I sure hope they do this one right. They need to explain to us why Obama and his Pentagon protect the terrorists from the FT. Hood attack and many other things where Obama has sided with terrorists against our country. Why obama does not want the word Islam to be used when discussing Muslim terrorists, or heck even the word Muslim. WE know why but someone needs to make this a point in their findings so at least it will be more well known to the apathy ridden citizen on his couch nodding agreement to Chris Matthews and his ilk.

Somebody should do it soon Shariah law is allowed in our courts. Soon it will be too late.

I'll bet they do. The roaches fear the light. If the "moderate muslims" really disavow terrorism, they'd be happy to join in the hearings and help the U.S. ferret out the bad guys. I just fear too many people have their heads jammed firmly in the sand or their backsides and just don't care.

Go Rep. King! Just please don't waste time proving what we already know - that there really are Islamic terrorists living among us - but try to figure out what can be done about them before it is too late.

I hate islam. That's my reason to support any hearings on radical muslims.

Thanks everyone.

I heard the jerk from CAIR saying how he is against Rep.King and defending of course his radical Muslims saying they only mostly kill other Muslims. BS they need to look at how many deaths since 911 or even before of non muslims all due to their freaking islam.
