Rep. Peter King Schedules Third Muslim Hearing

Rep. Peter King Schedules Third Muslim Hearing

Since apparently the first two “extreme Muslims” hearings didn’t cause enough anger and xenophobia, New York Congressman Peter King has announced that he will be holding yet another hearing, this one at the end of July.

Via The Hill:

The chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security on Tuesday announced a third hearing on Islamic radicalization in America.

Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) said the hearing will take place on July 27. It is titled, “Al Shabaab: Recruitment and Radicalization within the Muslim American Community and the Threat to the Homeland.”

“At this hearing, the third in a series, we will examine Somalia-based terrorist organization al-Shabaab’s ongoing recruitment, radicalization, and training of young Muslim-Americans and al-Shabaab’s linking up with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP),” King said in a statement announcing the hearing.

King’s first hearing, a generalized meeting on “radical Islam” mainly culminated in a group of like-minded congressmen and “experts” repeatedly discussing how CAIR was an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a variety of terrorist plots.  His second hearing, which focused more specifically on “radical Islam in the prison system” went by with very little notice.

King has been accused of racism for his relentless focus on Muslims as a source of terrorism in the United States, and has defended himself by stating “The purpose of this committee is to combat Islamic terrorism because that is the terrorist threat to this country. If we find out that neo-Nazis are allied with a foreign power and they come into this country, we will investigate it.”

Of course, the problem with that is that the neo-Nazis committing terrorist acts aren’t allied with a foreign power.  They’re all home grown.

Marty, you DISGRACEFUL Muslim APOLOGIST, during the weekend of Jan. 14-16, the UCLA Muslim Student Assn. (LINKED with the Muslim Brotherhood, which will take over EGYPT SOON, as well as Hamas, Hezbollah, CAIR & ISNA) had a HUGE 'western' regional Muslim 'conference' wherein the speakers basically called for ALL Muslims in the US to prepare for DOMESTIC JIHAD (read: CIVIL WAR!) against us K'firs (that includes YOU, I think, tho’ you MIGHT be a Muslima, too!)!

NO, I'M NOT MAKING THIS UP!

Since then, there've been OVER 1 DOZEN ISLAMIST attacks (MOSTLY thwarted!) on Muslims & other US citizens HERE IN THE US, including:

JESSICA MOKDAD, 20, of Coon Rapids, Minnesota: SHOT/SHARI'A MURDERED 4MAY11 by her family for not being Muslim "ENOUGH" (refusing to wear the 'hijab', etc.!)!

Marty, you DISGRACEFUL EXCUSE for a "feminist"; you should give ALL the $$$ you'd provide for your daughter in ONE YEAR to ESTABLISH a scholarship in Jessica's MEMORY!

Your DISGRACEFUL Muslim apologetix are an AFFRONT to ALL Muslim women in "The World" who DESPERATELY LONG to be FREE of their OWN private SHARI'A HELL (what they receive daily from their OWN FAMILIES!)!

ISLAM, that RACIST, HATE-BASED "deathcult-of-peace™" is a LIE & the TRUTH is KILLING IT!

Ut oh, once someone starts using words like "homeland", "motherland" and "fatherland" in this day and age: look out. I'm serious, this is the sign of a dangerous and delusional mind.

The regressive Republican Party of No is obstructionist, mean-spirited, thuggish, religiously fanatical, scientifically ignorant, corrupt, hypocritical, xenophobic, racist, sexist, homophobic, evolution and global warming denying, oily, anti-environment, anti-consumer, anti-choice, anti-education, union busting, Medicare and Social Security slashing, authoritarian, selfish, greedy, out-of-touch, lacking compassion, warmongering, and otherwise dangerous.

NEVER vote for Republicans.

Verdi/Laure, please.lol You think nobody looks at that stuff you put on your page?

Robert O., it's very clear that Rep.King doesn't really care about terrorists here in NY and is only stoking fear in people for his own benefit. When he was asked to enlarge his inquiry he refused claiming it was only foreigners he was willing to discuss. Now that the Norway monster has shown off his links to Pam Geller and Robert Spencer and that horrible Wilders man who was pleased to come here with Pam's mob promoting her nasty book on the streets where I have to walk I think we should all admit that the right wing anti women anti muslim anti immigrant and whatever the new anti is is in fact foreign also. Kings own involment with the IRA should have been enough to have him resign in disgrace. The racists here have for many years talked of going to Norway where they thought it was *pure*. I won't be surprised when I hear that the shooter's other "2 cells" have Americans in them. That won't bother Rep. King and the hate pushers in the least though.

Laure, Care2 is visibly biased, isn't it ? Linda is an obsessed woman. She has plenty of free time on her hands, shameless, attacking anyone who doesn't think like her, insults galore, and other cheap choices. Ignore her ! She's a real troll. Always present and saying nothing. Two of the neighbors in my grandmother's village uses to be just like her. Hands on hips yelling ! For those two women the devil was in the details. Each hair will be split in four !
I understand how you felt. For a moment you hoped that Linda misunderstood you.
But Linda and her clicque do this on purpuse. So let's stop the non-sense.
Thanks for saying loud what you think. Very few people do , which leave those like Linda with a fake impression that she's always on top. Good grief !

Madam,

What Norway stuff ? I didn't touch my page in months.
Is this how you work when you don't like what you read?
Trying to put dirt on people and doubt in other's minds?
If the others are as limited as you think why would I need their support?
I don't run for any candidancy nor do I care what your Others think.

You better stay with the subject. The subject in this article is not me.
