Peter King's Fourth of July Message to Muslims
by Rashed Mian
Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford) suggested this week that Muslim Americans should keep a keen eye on their own community during the July 4 weekend amid heightened security concerns.
Speaking Wednesday morning on Long Island MacArthur Airport-based LI News Radio, King, chairman of the House Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, urged Muslim Americans in the region to be proactive and to contact local police if they notice something—or someone—suspicious.
"I am addressing it largely—or certainly to a large extent—to the Muslim community in this region because if there is a threat, if there is going to be something happening, it's going to come from the Muslim community," he said. The audio of his remarks was posted online by Buzzfeed.
