Hours before he would preside over the first in a series of hearings examining the radicalization of American Muslims, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said he was just fulfilling his "duty" as the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security to look into a threat that he sees as very real.

“The administration is saying it: Al-Qaeda is targeting and attempting to radicalize Muslims within the U.S. — and it is focusing its efforts on the American-Muslim community. This is the most significant homeland security issue we face.

 

“The danger comes from a small segment within the Muslim community. Unfortunately, the issue we are facing is that not enough leaders in the community are willing to come forward when they know an individual is being radicalized. In some cases, these leaders have encouraged individuals to not cooperate with investigations.”
