Rep. King: I'll Hold Hearings on Muslim Threat

Sunday, 06 Mar 2011 09:10 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee says affiliates of al-Qaida are radicalizing some American Muslims and that he plans to hold hearings on the threat they pose to the U.S.

Republican congressman Peter King of New York tells CNN's "State of the Union" that he sees an international movement with elements in the United States of Muslims becoming more radical and identifying with terrorists.

A Minnesota Democrat, congressman Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to the House, says that while it's proper to investigate radicalization, he thinks it is wrong to single out a religious minority.

On Sunday, groups opposed to King's hearings plan to rally in New York. President Barack Obama's deputy national security adviser will speek on the administration's approach to countering domestic radicalization.
