The House Committee for Promoting Islamophobia in America

The New York Times reports:

The Republican who will head the House committee that oversees domestic security is planning to open a Congressional inquiry into what he calls “the radicalization” of the Muslim community when his party takes over the House next year.

Representative Peter T. King of New York, who will become the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said he was responding to what he has described as frequent concerns raised by law enforcement officials that Muslim leaders have been uncooperative in terror investigations.

He cited the case of Najibullah Zazi, an Afghan man and a legal resident of the United States, who was arrested last year for plotting to bomb the New York subway system. Mr. King said that Ahmad Wais Afzali, an imam in Queens who had been a police informant, had warned Mr. Zazi before his arrest that he was the target of a terror investigation.

“When I meet with law enforcement, they are constantly telling me how little cooperation they get from Muslim leaders,” Mr. King said.

The move by Mr. King, who said he was planning to open a hearing on the matter beginning early next year, is the latest example of the new direction that the House will take under the incoming Republican majority.

    Islam encourages the wise to be slow to condemn/judge a man. They would say that a terrorist is evidently not guided by Allah if/when he commits an act of violence against innocents. Ask them if these acts are Islamic and they will say no. But, of course, they will not see Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan through the same lens we do.

    Whatever, we need to do all we can do to encourage real divisions between radicals and faithful Muslims. Increasingly, we are driving them together, or at least sowing deep ambivalence. That is a war we can’t win, or even afford to wage.

    He fully supported the IRA until Ireland declined to support the US in its wars of aggression in the Middle East.

    Monkey Man Peter King has a long tail that will hurt him badly if it is exposed and perhaps now the Muslims in America will realize that, like the Jews, they must defend themselves against the Zionist-funded for-sale Republican Storm Troopers. There were several meetings of Republican big-os who concluded that by drawing Jewish money away from the Democrat Party they can dominate US politics for a long time, much as Rove suggested. The issue is not so much getting the money for themselves, as they have more than enough corporate coffers to draw on, but rather cutting off the Jewish money that is over 50% of the Democratic Party’s income. This assumes that most Jewish donors are Zionists first and liberals second. The Republicans will be greatly disappointed.

    The USA is undergoing major changes. People are unable to accept limits on their ability to pay for their shopping sprees with mere plastic as if things were free and so they’re striking out blindly at the party in power, whichever it is. Obama foolishly gave Republicans a lease on life by passing their bill for extending Bush tax breaks for rich and then some other Christmas tree ornaments on wealth inheritance. But Obama is a passing entity. Nevertheless, by 2012 Middle Class Americans will see exactly what the Republicans have cost them as the rich seek to further squeeze the middle class in order to get even richer.

    Peter King is a rather loose cannon who more often struggles to get his foot out of his mouth and he will invaraibly expose one facet of what his party stands for. The Zionists are desperate to buy off any legislators who will serve their desire to oppress Muslim Americans and prevent further Muslim/Arab immigration to the US of people who worked with US in Iraq, Afghnaistan and Mideast. As it is, Muslims/Arabs are more numerous than Jews in America. This Zionist anti-Semitic campaign will backfire for the Muslims and Christian Arabs are in no way inferior to the Zionists. A polarized struggle between the two sides will only hurt both the radicals anti-American Jihadis like alQaeda and the Zionists equally as both are war mongers costing much American blood and treasure!

    The reckless Zionist anti-Semitic campaign will backfire as Americans realize what “dumb goyim” they are taken to be as made evident by their idiotic hasbara campaign. In Europe it is said that Zionists are their own worst enemy because they try to be both insulting and popular to goyim society at the same time. Muslims and Arab-Americans must be ready to make their case to their fellow Americans rather than hide thinking the oppression will pass them by and only hit the next guy. They must also, as Americans, be ready for a Jewish-Arab coalition against the anti-Semitism fomented by the Zionists to force all Jews to move to Israel. King is such a fool and coward that he will be a gift to Muslim/Arab Americans in the final analysis. I knew him a long time….he got worse, not better. Fear not, organize for justice instead!

    We must all stand with both Muslim/Arabs and Jews against anti-Semetism otherwise the Zionists will turn America into a Hell hole!
