(CNSNews.com) - Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, said Sunday mosques in the United States should be placed under surveillance regardless of the complaints of civil libertarians since "the fact is, that's where the threat is coming from."
Fox News Sunday stand-in host Doug McKelway asked the chairman of the House Homeland Security subcommittee on counterintelligence and terrorism about recent comments in favor of 24/7 monitoring of mosques.
"I can hear the cries of civil libertarians and constitutionalists right now, Congressman," McKelway said.
"Yeah, listen, they can cry all they want," King replied. "The fact is, that's where the threat is coming from. And we can say that 98, 99 percent of the Muslims in this country are good people. (I'm actually swearing in the first elected Muslim on Long Island into office, she's a good friend of mine.)
"So, this is nothing against Muslims, but the fact is that is where the threat is coming from," he continued. "And we're kidding ourselves. We have this blind political correctness which makes no sense.
King offered several examples of cases where radical sentiment aired in U.S. mosques had allegedly not been reported to law enforcement agencies.

But Obama said we can’t do that.
And we’re kidding ourselves. We have this blind political correctness which makes no sense.
King is kidding himself as well.
Islam is completely incompatible with our way of life
The future must not belong to those who deny the true nature of Islam
John Quincy Adams on Islam
In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust, by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE.
Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. That war is yet flagrant; nor can it cease but by the extinction of that imposture, which has been permitted by Providence to prolong the degeneracy of man. While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men. The hand of Ishmael will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. It is, indeed, amongst the mysterious dealings of God, that this delusion should have been suffered for so many ages, and during so many generations of human kind, to prevail over the doctrines of the meek and peaceful and benevolent Jesus (Blunt, 1830, 29:269, capitals in orig.).
Careful Peter, you don’t want to make the media or the Chamber of Commerce or any of the other One World Government people get really angry with you when you talk like that.
“Careful Peter, you donât want to make the media or the Chamber of Commerce or any of the other One World Government people get really angry with you when you talk like that.”
Peter King is seldom right about anything, but like a stopped clock he’s right here.
BTW, with a name like Peter King, I’ll bet he’s a hit with the gay community.
Peter King is one of those Cheap Labor Express/One World Government people, so no worries, he was cleared to say this.
Have to make it look like you’re looking out for Americans once in a while.....
No, he isn’t. I don’t want to pay for mosque surveillance.
Just get the damned things out of my country, mmmkay, Pete?
They have no business here, and they are not compatible with America.
Mosques are not who we are.
Mostly, I think Pete King is full of crap — a RINO extrordinaire. On this, I pretty much agree with him.
Where was he when he was needed? It is too late to close the barn door after the horses have left. And all that aside, the American voting public loves their muslims. In fact, they elected one to rule over them two times in succession.
Forget about King. He’s correct about 3 times per year but that isn’t frequent enough to justify listening to him.
Yup. We know King’s history. Say something good, do everything bad. He’s a hypocrite.
“Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.)...said Sunday mosques in the United States should be placed under...”
...the treads of a bulldozer.
Saudi Funded Mosques.
Muslims have failed to clean up their act from within and the rest of America is under no obligation to offer sanctuary for our enemies to conspire, stockpile arms, and plot against us.
Indoctrination centers should be monitored.
Muslims have failed to clean up their act from within
It is impossible to reform Islam.
Anyone who tries risks losing their head.
Mad Mo made it so.
***No, he isnât. I donât want to pay for mosque surveillance.***
With this administration “surveilance” would be more like a Fast and Furious program to arm the muslims.
