The reaction from the Left and the mainstream media over Rep. Peter King's congressional hearings into radicalization of American Muslims is really sickening to behold. They are throwing around terms like "inquisition" and "McCarthyism" when King is really trying to address a serious problem facing the US and the world. Letting Hamas-linked groups like CAIR frame the debate is dangerous. America's politically correct attitude is causing it to ignore the serious danger in our midst, as seen recently from home-grown radicals like Major Hassan, the Times Square bomber and the underwear bomber, among others. When over eighty percent of terrorist activities being investigated by the Justice Department concern radical Islamists, there is a real problem that needs to be addressed. The New York Daily News has a great op-ed on the subject today:

The real underlying story here is how the self-anointed leadership of the Muslim community - groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North AmericaMuslim American Society - are the ones responsible for instilling panic into the Muslim community by suggesting that these hearings will lead to "hate crimes" against Muslims. and the

That canard has been used by these groups for years in their attempts to intimidate the media, commentators and critics of radical Islam from truly analyzing the role of these groups and others in radicalizing their constituents in the American Muslim community. The documents showing the creation of these groups with the assistance of the Muslim Brotherhood were introduced into evidence in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and DevelopmentFBI expert as a front for Hamas, and was also listed, together with the Islamic Society of North America, as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation indictments. several years ago. At the trial, the Council on American-Islamic Relations was described by an

Groups such as these routinely play the "Islamophobia" card, and get attention for doing so in the mainstream media, in order to silence criticism of Islamic radicalism. In fact, these very same groups, just like the Obama administration, categorically refuse to even use the term "radical Islam" in order to excise the term from the American vernacular.

Critics have taken issue with King's focus on one religious minority. But, in fact, in previous years, Congress has held numerous hearings into various ethnic subcultures that have spawned illegalities - including the Italian mob, Hispanic drug cartels, black and white prison gangs, white racists and neo-Nazis.

Hopefully Rep. King can get more publicity for the actual purposes and findings of his hearings, as opposed to the publicity being generated by those lying about his intentions. There is quite a difference.
