Skip to comments.Witness at King Hearing to Warn 'Political Fear' Stifling Debate Over Radical Islam

Relatives of two young men who were lured away by Islamic radicals plan to tell a House committee Thursday that Muslim leaders in America "brainwashed" and "manipulated" their family members, and that "political fear" is preventing people from talking about Islamic extremism.
The witnesses are part of the panel Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., plans to call at a controversial hearing on the threat posed by radical Islam in the United States.
King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, has faced persistent and vocal criticism from groups and lawmakers who claim he is unfairly targeting one ethnic group. One Muslim activist on Wednesday said King is "unfit" to lead the committee.
But King has defended his plans and, according to remarks prepared for the hearing, will accuse his detractors of spreading "rage and hysteria." He plans to claim that backing down now "would be a craven surrender to political correctness."

I don’t know if King is a good guy or a bad guy, but on this subject, maybe some eyes will be opened up to the threat to our country.
Muslim = Islam = Mohammad = Sharia = Violent Overthrow of the Non-Muslim World.
