Long Island Republican deserves praise for clearing misconceptions about DHS report.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has slammed Rep. Peter King for his alleged "bigoted" remarks, but the Long Island Republican is standing his ground.
Good for him — because what motivates King is a legitimate concern for the security of Americans, and he's not going to let such allegations silence him. King was commenting April 17 on the Department of Homeland Security's inflammatory report on "right-wing extremism." He noted that DHS "never put out a report saying . . . look out for Islamic terrorists in our country" or "that very few Muslims come forward to cooperate with the police" on terrorism. "If they sent out a report like that," he added, "there would be hell to pay." New York Post, April 21, 2009
Clinton invited to be keynote speaker at conference sponsored by Islamist think tank suspected of Muslim Brotherhood ties.
Two writers we highly respect are worried about an American-Islamist attempt to influence the Obama Administration.M. Zuhdi Jasser, founder and chairman of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, takes note of a resume book prepared by a Muslim congressional staffers organization. The group is tied to Islamists, or people who want more than the freedom to practice their faith. They want their faith to influence, and ultimately govern, society. Meanwhile, journalist Douglas Farah writes about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's acceptance of an invitation to be a keynote speaker at the 10th anniversary conference of the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID), which he describes as "a sort of umbrella organization for many of the [Muslim Brotherhood] groups in the United States."
