Representative Peter King appeared recently on CNN to discuss the killing by police of a Muslim woman who had previously threatened him. King has been holding hearings on the radicalization of Muslims. He came across as very professional and stressed that not all Muslims are radical. Rep. King is doing a good job and is trying to get to the bottom of the radicalization problem. Please watch the short video clip of his interview:
Representative King mentioned that “Islamaphobia” is blown out of proportion, and noted that Jews have been the victims of hate crimes much more than Muslims. In fact, “Islamaphobia” is a made-up word coined by a Muslim Brotherhood front group called the International Institute for Islamic Thought. King was referencing the FBI’s latest crime statistics (2010). You can see for yourself by clicking HERE.
