Rep. Peter King's Hearings on Muslim Radicalization - #2720 - VIDEO: Dr. Zuhdi Jasser's Testimony Before the Committee on Homeland Security - (2) Dr. Zuhdi Jasser's Written Testimony from House Hearings - American Islamic Forum for Democracy (3) Report from the Hill: Inside the House of Homeland Security Committees on the Radicalization of Muslims, Lisa, Piraneo, Director of Government Relations - 4 Freedoms Community


Dr. Zuhdi Jasser's Testimony before the Committee on Homeland Security - Please watch, his written testimony is below, as a Muslim, himself living in the United States, 'who stresses that terrorism will never be eliminated until the political side of Islam is removed. He also notes that there are Muslim groups in the U.S. who are pledging their allegiance to the Koran instead of to the U.S. Constitution. A vast majority of the audience in the room clearly disagrees with Dr. Jasser as there is a lot of eye rolling and snickering when he speaks.'

Written Testimony of M. Zuhdi Jasser, M.D. President, American Islamic Forum for Democracy - March 10, 2011 - 'The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and the Community's Response - Thank you Chairman King, Ranking member Thompson, Distinguished members of the committee, for seeking my testimony on what I feel is the most important threat to American security in the 21st century, Islamist Radicalization.  My name is Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser and I am the president and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. I sit before you a proud, devout, American Muslim whose country is polarized on its perceptions of Muslims and the radicalization that occurs within our communities. One camp refuses to believe any Muslim could be radicalized living in blind multiculturalism, apologetics, and denial, and the other camp believes all devout Muslims and the faith of Islam are radicalized... Between these two polarities is a reasoned, pragmatic approach focused on solutions that recognizes the beauty of one of the world's great religions, while also acknowledging the existence within of a dangerous internal theo-political domestic and global ideology that must be confronted - Islamism. I hope that these hearings are the beginning of a rational national conversation about those solutions.

Report from the Hill: Inside the House of Homeland Security Committee Hearings on the Radicalization of Muslims, Lisa Piraneo, Director of Government Relations - 4 Freedoms Community - I arrive at the Cannon House Office Building at 7:30 a.m.—two hours before the scheduled start of Congressman Peter King’s (R-NY) much-publicized hearing on Muslim Radicalization in our country. For the past few months Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated groups like the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) and Hamas front group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) have been whipping the Muslim community and the media into a frenzy about this hearing. There have been rallies in New York City and front page articles in the so-called “establishment media” about how “unfair” and even “dangerous” holding this hearing will be........Though I have attended many congressional hearings, I am shocked by the behavior of some of these elected officials as they interact with the witnesses. It is rude and disrespectful—particularly toward Dr. Jasser, who stresses that terrorism will never be eliminated until the political side of Islam is removed. He also notes that there are Muslim groups in the U.S. who are pledging their allegiance to the Koran instead of to the U.S. Constitution. A vast majority of the audience in the room clearly disagrees with Dr. Jasser as there is a lot of eye rolling and snickering when he speaks.  Read more........ Please also read her reporting of the hearings as she watched and observed,  you probably haven't read what really was happening during the hearings.
