NY Rep. King: I’ll hold hearings on radical Islam
NEW YORK — The incoming head of the House Committee on Homeland Security says he will hold hearings on what he calls the “radicalization” of some American Muslims.
Rep. Peter King said Sunday that law-enforcement officials around the country have told him that they receive little cooperation from Muslims.
But a spokesman for the Council in American-Islamic Relations said he fears King’s hearings will become an “anti-Muslim witchhunt.”
Ibrahim Hooper said several recent terrorist plots have been foiled because members of the Muslim community did cooperate with law enforcement.
King said in an opinion piece in Sunday’s Newsday that he will do all he can to “drive the public debate” on Islamic radicalization.
Hopefully King will cut off the snake’s head, and makes the Council on Islamic Relations (CAIR) his first target.
