Rep. Peter King: Most Muslims in this country back United States
by Dan Janison
Rep. Peter King said in his latest broadcast appearance yesterday that "the overwhelming majority of Muslims in this country are very supportive of the United States" — in contrast to Europe, where several Muslim communities are more isolated and hostile, thus helping make ISIS a bigger threat.
King (R-Seaford) famously aroused attention and controversy in recent years in statements and hearings on Muslim radicalization. So during a radio show on WNYM (970-AM), host John Catsimatidis asked the 12-term lawmaker his take on security alerts in Europe.
"We are at least for now in a better position than Europe because it's harder for ISIS to get here" — versus fighters' relatively easy access to France and Belgium via Turkey.
