New GOP House Committee Head Plans Inquiry On US Muslim Radicalization

This is a major step, both in terms of the action and who's heading it up.

The new head of the House Homeland Security Committee is none other than Peter King (R, NY) who has long been an outspoken foe of radical Islam.

His first order of business? A major House inquiry into the radicalizaton of America's Muslim community, which will undoubtedly lead him right to Saudi funded Muslim Brotherhood fronts like CAIR, the Islamic Society of North America(ISNA) The Islamic Trust of North America(ITNA)the Muslim Students Association(MSA) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council(MPAC) among others.

King says he's responding to what he described as frequent concerns raised by law enforcement that many Muslim leaders have been uncooperative when it comes to investigations of Islamist terrorists.

“When I meet with law enforcement, they are constantly telling me how little cooperation they get from Muslim leaders,” Mr. King said.

Given who's frequently been touted as 'Muslim leaders' by the last two presidents, is it any wonder?

King has tried to bring these matters up before, but in a Democrat controled House it was impossible, and as King says, he was “denounced for it.”

“It is controversial. But to me, it is something that has to be discussed.”

Indeed it does.

Needless to say, the linked new york Times article quotes Muslim leaders talking about how bigoted King is and how investigating ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic terrorist groups is 'racist'.

Hopefully, 'Muslim leaders' repeating the same old lines from the old script won't deter Rep. King and his colleagues. We may be on the road to starting to connect the dots.

please helps me write more gooder!

Nice to see someone is finally at least taking baby steps toward getting serious about this problem. Islamic radicalization poses a greater threat to America than Nazi Germany ever did or likely ever could have.

This does NOT necessarily mean we use the same strategies to defeat this enemy that we used to defeat Nazi Germany. While the threat posed by radical Islam is greater than the threat posed by Nazi Germany and Imperial Jspsn ever was or likely ever could have been, it is not the same enemy.

As such, different strategies will need to be used to defeat this enemy than the strategies that used to defeat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. In order to actually defeat this enemy, we will first need the seriousness of the "greatest generation" that won WWII. Hopefully this is a step in the right direction.
