Shocker… Radicals Threaten Rep. Peter King For Holding Hearings on Radical Islam
Who could have seen this coming?
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) was given a security upgrade after he received several threats for holding hearings on radical Islam.
CBS Local reported:
Long Island Congressman Peter King is facing threats — and getting extra security.
But he vowed Monday to forge ahead with controversial hearings on radicalization in the Muslim-American community, reports CBS 2’s Tony Aiello.
King was heavily criticized at a weekend rally in Times Square.
“American Muslims are part of the American family and are Americans, too!” Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf said.
But the congressman was strongly supported at a smaller rally nearby.
“Imam Rauf and his friends are trying to create a phony trumped-up civil rights movement,” one King supporter said.
Cops and federal agents agreed with Rep. Pete King this week that they don’t get a lot of tipsters from the Muslim community.
