What has preceded and surrounded these hearings is anger, denial, criticism, mindless, baseless hysteria by the mainstream media and the liberal left accusing Representative Peter King and members of his committee of racism and McCarthyism.
What has come out of the the first hearing illustrates something very different despite detractors such as Representative Sheila Jackson whose nearly total relation to anything adverse in her worldview seems to be to play the race card.
Here is the link to the live video from C-SPAN3 on the House Hearings on Radicalization of American Muslims. I am not sure how long this will be available and will seek other sources of this very interesting testimony.

So, will Egypt is go democratic or hard-line Islamic? It will likely take awhile before the hard-line Islamic leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood wedge their foot in the door enough hold to take over the government, but I can tell you some people outside the Middle East are worried about it because that’s a fire that will spread all across the Middle East and Europe and change the world forever.
Thanks to Islamic immigration, France is a literal mess.
Outside Paris, Muslims have established what the French call no-go zones (751 areas!) in which native French and police dare not set foot. Sadly this reminds me of the thousands of acres our own federal government has made off limits to Americans along the southern border of Arizona because it is not safe.
It may be a case of shutting the barn door after the horse is long gone, but British Prime Minister David Cameron told the Munich Security Conference on Saturday,
“Europe must stamp out intolerance of Western values within its own Muslim communities if it is to defeat the roots of terrorism. A culture of tolerance had allowed Islamic extremists to build support for their causes. “We’ve been too cautious, frankly even fearful, to stand up to them.” [and too damn politically correct just as we have in the United States], bracketed words are my own.
Germany’s Merkel sings the same tune: “The immigrant population is disproportionately connected to almost all of the social problems of modern Germany and our apparent deterioration of public order is driven by multicultural immigration”. And likewise 1/3 of the inmates in Arizona prisons are illegal immigrants. At some point we have to gain control of what our “politically correct, look the other way, do not offend approach to multiculturalism is costing us too.
Representative Peter King of NY is doing just that- holding Capitol Hill hearing in which he “promises to drive the public debate on Islamic radicalization of American Muslims living legally in the US. Of course, the usual libs and the “why can’t we all get a long” crowd and Muslims crying victim, are crying fowl. But playing nicey-nice and continually giving into immigrant demands is not going to end up being a good thing for us as the Europeans are also learning.
