Muslim lawmaker to testify at House hearing in March
by Tom Brune
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., will hold his controversial hearing on U.S. Muslim radicalization during the second week of March, and the first Muslim elected to Congress said he'll testify to challenge King's premise, aides said Tuesday.
Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., a Muslim convert, will accept King's invitation to testify, his aide said, but he'll do it to challenge King's premise that radicalized American Muslims pose a greater threat than others such as American Nazis.
Another panelist, a King aide confirmed, will be Zuhdi Jasser, an Arizona physician and founder of a nonprofit whose goal is to fight "political Islam and Islamist radicalization," and "collaborate with intelligence and law enforcement."
