America is the target al-Qaeda, who is trying to recruit young American Muslims. Congressman King and the Muslim bashing majority of GOP'ers, and their allies in the right wing media, instead of joining in a smart and effective fight against al-Qaeda, are aiding them instead. But how? By their anti-American deeds, their bigotry, their constant crusade to demonize other Americans, in this case Muslims, with the hope to drive Americans who are Muslims from America.
Right-wingers like Peter King are doing more to "radicalize" ordinary Muslims than al-Qaeda ever could.
Last night, the PBS News Hour took a look at what they called the "controversial" hearings. News Hour highlighted the truth-telling testimony of America's first and only Muslim member of Congress, who pleaded not to demonize Americans who are members of a different religious group. News Hour also highlighted the testimony of a Los Angeles county sheriff, who testified that not only are American Muslims a diverse group, like all Americans, but that they cooperate with local law enforcement.
