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.
