Hearing in Washington to focus on ways to prevent radicalization of Muslims
by Steve Strunsky
The fifth in a series of controversial hearings on Muslim radicalization has been scheduled for Wednesday morning by Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), the Long Island congressman who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee.
The 10:15 a.m. hearing at the Cannon House Office Building will focus on the Muslim community's response to the previous four hearings, held last year from March through December, according to King's office.
The previous hearings addressed the extent of radicalization of the Muslim community and its response; the threat of radicalization in U.S. prisons; recruitment by the al-Shabab radical group; and the threat to U.S. military communities posed by radicalization, exemplified by 2009 shooting at Fort Hood, Texas, which killed 13 people.
