UGH! 'Pray-In' held outside Rep. Peter King’s office ahead of hearings on radical Islam

Muslims, Self-hating Jews and Christians gathered outside Rep. King’s office to ask him to stop targeting Muslims and cancel hearings on what King calls the radicalization of Muslim-Americans. But American patriots who agree that the Muslim hearings are important for national security were also there.

CBS NEWS –“A bomb doesn’t differentiate between a Muslim and a non-Muslim. We are just as afraid of extremists as anybody else,” Seemi Ahmed said. (That’s right, but all the bombs are being set off by MUSLIMS)

About 200 noisy but peaceful protesters – split about evenly “for” and “against” – were watched by at least 30 police officers in Massapequa Park.

Opponents of the hearings — from all different faiths – had billed their event Tuesday as an interfaith “pray-in.” “We stand here outside Peter King’s office because we believe that singling out an entire community, such as Muslim-Americans, is un-American,” one demonstrator said. (Muslims ARE un-American)

Muslims fear the hearings will demonize peaceful members of their faith, those clearly against terrorism. (Who cares? ‘Peaceful Muslims’  share the same goals as radical Muslims, just different methods of achieving them)

“If you want to talk about terrorism or extremism it should be about everyone. Muslims are a part of the fabric of society,” said Saad Sheik of Valley Stream.

They’re urging the House Committee on Homeland Security chairman not to hold controversial hearings on what he calls the “radicalization” of some American Muslims.

King told 1010 WINS’ Mona Rivera that the hearings will go on as scheduled.

“I’m not going to cave in. The overwhelming majority of Muslims are outstanding people. (PC crap. How does he know this?) But the fact is there is a real threat coming from that community,” King said.

“But the fact is there was an element in that community that as in all communities is threatening the U.S. The difference is with this they are allied with an overseas enemy – al Qaeda.”

King points to homegrown terrorists like Faisal Shahzad, the man behind the failed Times Square bombing in May 2010, believed to have been financed by the Pakistani Taliban. In November 2009 at Fort Hood in Texas, American-born Muslim Nidal Malik Hasan allegedly killed 13 people in a shooting spree.

But King’s rationale is not sitting well with Muslims. (Who cares?)

“The nature of the investigation that representative King’s committee seeks to pursue has the potential of holding the Muslim community hostage to suspicion and fear mongering,” Rabbi Jerome Davidson said.(Another self-hating liberal Jew bastard who needs to have his throat cut by his Muslim  ‘pals’)

(And this is a BAD thing because why? I think we should open up these hearings to investigate Communists again as well as Muslims. Starting with Barack Obama  – he fits both categories)

Protesters said the hearings, due to begin March 7, are nothing more than a witch hunt against Muslims.“We need to heal divisions not create more separation,” Sister Jean Clark said. (MORE separation from Muslims is exactly what we need – oceans of separation) Some protesters held up crosses or Muslim crescent symbols.

King supporters carried signs that read, “Don’t Tread on Me” and said the hearings will root out homegrown terrorists. “This war on terror is not some campaign overseas. It goes on today right here,” said Andy Sullivan of the group the “9/11 Hard Hats.”

“Congressman King is taking action on this. For people to call him Islama-phobe or bigot is ridiculous,” retired NYC firefighter Tim Brown added.
