Thursday, March 10th, Rep. Pete King (R-NY) will begin hearings to ascertain how and why so many Muslims are becoming radicalized in America. Following 9/11, King was shocked and disappointed that the American Muslim community was virtually silent following the attack. In some cases Muslims have even refused to cooperate with law enforcement officials. King's committee hopes to get to the root of the problem, and will hear testimony from Muslims who wanted to help, but feared their religious leaders and others in their community.
The first video below is comprised of a series of network interviews with Peter King. The second video highlights the reasons we must investigate the causes of radicalization in "moderate" communities. After watching these, it should be easy to understand why King's hearing is necessary. Our lives depend on it.
I sincerely hope that Peter King will be able to educate the public about the difference between religious Islam and political Islam.
