Poll: Most support House look at radical Islam in USA
by Nicole Neroulias
Americans haven't heard much about upcoming congressional hearings on the radicalization of U.S. Muslims, yet more than half think it's a good idea, and nearly as many believe Muslims here haven't done enough to fight extremists in their midst, according to a new poll.
At the same time, 62% say American Muslims are an important part of the religious community, and a clear majority (72%) say Congress should investigate religious extremism anywhere it exists, not just among Muslims, according to a new survey released today by The Public Religion Research Institute and Religion News Service.
The PPRI/RNS poll was released as House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King, R-N.Y., prepares to hold hearings on the threat of homegrown Islamic extremism during the week of March 7.
