Peter King: Dazed and Confused

Exactly one month ago, the door of hope was opened when Peter King (R), House Committee on Homeland Security, stated he will hold hearings on the “radicalization” of certain American Muslims.

Now, we learn that the door of hope is quickly being closed, as King’s proposed solution to the problem will not stem the tide of “radical thought. This is the main policy that the UK has implemented and it has proven to be a failure in reducing the numbers & activity of “radical” Muslims, leading to more concessions to Islam.

Last night, the Politico published an article entitled Muslim Groups Nervous About King Hearings. The article was written by Ben Smith & Byron Tau. Starting with Peter King.

In a move that will come as a relief to Muslim leaders, King told POLITICO that he’s not planning to call as witnesses such Muslim community critics as the Investigative Project on Terrorism’s Steve Emerson and Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer, two respected individuals with large followings among Conservatives but who are viewed as antagonists by many Muslims.

The opening bell of the fight has just sounded! King has already had his knees buckled, and he is now dealing from a position of weakness that will be certainly exploited by the Islamic community.

King aims, he said, to call retired law enforcement officials and people with “the real life experience of coming from the Muslim community.” Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim to serve in the House and a critic of the hearings, will likely be a minority witness, according to both King and the Minnesota Democrat.

So, King believes that Ellison, who has given speeches at a Sharia college in the Middle East, and a Sharia convention in America is going to be helpful. This is like a boxer having a cut eye in a match, but listening to the evaluation of his opponent’s corner man, who will say that the other guy is just fine to continue the match!

SNIP

Possible witnesses, according to King, include Dutch critic of Islam, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and M. Zuhdi Jasser, president and founder of Arizona-based American Islamic Forum for Democracy. Jasser is a sharp critic of leading American Muslim groups, whose agenda he calls “Islamist.”

Here we go again with the “Jasser is the answer” fantasy. I would personally like to “thank” Bridgette Gabriel for at least playing a part in King’s recipe for disaster. Earlier this month, she led the way, by sending out an email with the title being A Muslim supports Rep. Peter King. When I read her email, I had a feeling that King would start trotting Jasser around as well. Then, last week, she sent out another email stating that Peter King will be the first guest on her new cable TV show. So, she obviously has his ear.

“We have to admit as Muslims that we need a 12-step program,” Jasser told POLITICO. “The first step is acceptance.”

“If they don’t see us leading a charge for reform they’re going to see us as part of the problem,” he said.

Jasser, why don’t you stop ducking my emails and come out of hiding? Then, using supporting verses from the Islamic scriptures, explain your plan to reform Islam. You cannot, that is why you avoid those who ask you tough questions. This is beside the fact that you oppose Geert Wilders, one of the few Western leaders who is actually willing to fight Islam head on. This information can be seen on my anti-Sharia sister’s site Atlas Shrugs.

Finally, we see that the authors of the article on POLITICO have not done their research on Islam.

Jasser is a rare Muslim voice welcoming the hearings.

Please provide your evidence via Islamic Law that Jasser is a valid Muslim!

Seriously, EVERYONE needs to face the reality that “moderate” Muslims are NOT coming to the rescue. This line of thinking is detrimental to the country. It is our fight, deal with it! King, do you have it in you?

    All that will come of this fiasco is that it will be used as an example of how “racist” the Republicans are to have even initiated such hearings. This is just too sad.

    • Steve

      I does not matter what the Republicans will be called. Right is right. Besides, had King done the right thing; had he called on Emerson and Spencer for example, he would have had a significant number of Americans standing beside him. Now I am not sure. Winston Churchill was called a “scare monger” and a “war monger” in the UK throughout much of the nineteen thirties. It did not deter Churchill from warning his countrymen about the Nazi threat. Peter King is obviously no Churchill. Do we have a Churchill in the Republican party? The PLO raised its flag this week over Washington. Other than Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, where are our men? Woops, I spoke too soon:

      New congressman Rep. Allen West denounces raising of PLO flag

      By Brittany Wallman January 19, 2011 05:46 PM

      The office of U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, says the freshman congressman is publicly condemning the Palestine Liberation Organization, or PLO, for raising its flag outside its offices in the nation’s capital.

      “The raising of this flag is an attempt to legitimize an organization with a known history of terrorist actions,” West said, in a written news release.

      “By allowing this flag to be flown, the United States is extending a diplomatic right that we refrain from offering to even our own allies, like Taiwan. This action is a diplomatic slap in the face of our greatest of allies, Israel.”

      He was joined by another South Florida congressperson and fellow Republican, U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, in condemning the flag-raising. They’re asking President Obama and the Department of State’s Foreign Missions to yank back the permission that was given to the PLO to raise it.

    I knew that this shmuck would not have the stones to actualy do what he said. All talk, no walk.

    Let the beatings begin.

    It’s realy kind of sad to see grown men cower in fear before an ideolgy. Pathetic.

    I think that 1.muz are terrified of fundamentalists who are not afraid to kill to make a point, or 2.That there are no real “moderate muz” that exist. What do you say Chris?

    • admin

      Hey Tonto,

      I say that when push comes to shove most of them are going to side with Islam, over America.

      • Roger Anderson

        That has always been the case in every incident that I have ever seen.

  • John Sobieski

    King must not comprehend the books on Islam that he has read. He has read Spencer and Emerson? No? So he is making the decision to deny them based on someone else’s disparagement of them rather than taking a look himself at the facts, the websites and read their books. Takes too long? Whatever?

    He is more than confused, he is worthless and has proven he never intended to do anything other than appease the islamists!

  • VanZorge

    recall that in the wake of the AZ shooting, peter king wanted to introduce legislation that would make it illegal to carry a gun within 1000 feet of a politician.

    king is going off the rails, and he needs to get out of DC – TERM LIMITS

    Another example of why it will be up to
    folks like us to continue what we have
    been doing for years now.

    That is just waht I will continue to
    do, battle islam and sharia law until
    it is pounded back up a camel’s ass
    where it belongs. Then slaughter the
    camel and feed to the pigs and dogs, if
    they will touch it. If not, let it feed
    the vultures.

    Harsh, perhaps but then the reality
    of islam and sharia law is even
    harsher and littered with death.

    Hey Chris, how about putting up a permanent link where one can contact their senator or congressman. It’s very simple to contact them. What is shocking, however, is that only about four percent of the population ever does. The more they hear about concerns from their constituents the more likely they will act. I have already contacted mine asking for thorough investigations into the radicalization of Muslim Americans. Here’s the links if anyone wants.

    Steve Emerson and Robert Spencer are the only 2 they need to interview to hear everything they need to learn.
    Keith Ellison should not even BE an American politician since his “religion” does not allow him to follow manmade laws, ie; our constitution. And he believes his quran rules over any other laws.
    King has obviously been compromised the same as all the others. It is sad that they do not realize that the islamists today are using the same taqiyya Mohammmad used to pretend to befriend those he wished to conquer until his group was strong enough.
    There will be no peace when the caliphate is complete, until there is but one muslim left standing, blood drenching his feet, because even muslims will not be pious enough.
    Robert Spencer can teach the truth about Mohammad, so that all the world will understand, and even moderate muslims will understand and that is why Ellison does not want them to be heard.

  • British patriot

    It is pointless appeasers banging on that the majority of muslims are peacefull law abideing citizens.The problem is the so called” moderate Muslim” will never stand up en mass to the Islamists amongst them.They therefore make themselves useless,so it’s a waste of time asking them for help.

    • http://www.saveourschoolappeal.org.uk Sarah Blake

      We Brits know all about appeasement! There is no such thing as a ‘moderate’ Muslim, as their totalitarian doctrine trumps any loyalty to the nation state. It’s all as basic as tribal loyalty – we recognize our nationality, personal faith – scratch a ‘moderate’ Muslim born in Michigan, Bradford or Tokyo, and you find that their identity as a Muslim comes before anything else.

      Now, the loony coalition in the UK has Baroness Warsi lecturing us on our status as Islamophobes! Please visit this website and help fight a mega-mosque at the gates of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst: http://www.saveourschoolappeal.org.uk

    If you really want to get the lowdown on Keith Ellison, here’s the link.

    Ellison has ties to numerous terrorist organizations…go figure. His stealth jihad is for all to see if they only look behind the mask.

      Thanks Mike!

    • Moi

      What a buffoon. His very presence as a U.S. congressman is foul and an extremely gross insult. That he was sworn in on the very koran that Thomas Jefferson owned (in order to understand the vile actions of the mohammedans of his day/barbary pirates) is so outlandish until no words can suffice this blatant outrage against our nation.

  • refuse2lose

    If you have time tonight,watch the Sean Hannity show. Not real clear about who he is talking to,but it is concerning muslims who want their flag flying in DC.

    • admin

      Thanks for the update.

  • AmericanMe

    King just said what he thought would get him elected. Now he’s done, can’t be muddying his name with islamaphobia now can he? Typical lying politician.

    A few phone calls may have done the trick.

    “We know where you live”.

    “We know where your kids go to school”.

    “Does your wife know about that blonde in the village?”

  • dean

    to find out PRECISELY what is happening to our nation as our economy is being tanked on purpose by the alliance between China, Russia and the islamic nations, as Obama accelerates that Islamization of our nation.. read;
