The threat of homegrown terror is real, as the terrorist attack at Fort Hood, Texas vividly illustrated. On March 10, the House Committee on Homeland Security, under the Chairmanship of Congressman Peter King (R-NY), will hold a critically important hearing on “The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and that Community’s Response.” Predictably, the liberal media is up in arms condemning the hearing and out-of-touch, politically correct liberal groups have likened it to a modern day McCarthyism.
Congressman Peter King (R-NY) should be commended for shedding light on emergence of radical Islam in America. Citizens United Productions has produced a hard-hitting documentary called America at Risk: The War with No Name that examines radical Islam and the threat of homegrown terror. One of the experts featured in America at Risk, Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, will be a key witness in Congressman King’s important hearing. President and Founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, Dr. Jasser will provide testimony on how American Muslims have been radicalized by both internal and external forces – information that liberals in Washington and radical groups like CAIR don’t want you to know about!
President Obama refuses to tell the truth about radical Islam. Under his administration, the Global War on Terror has been renamed the “Overseas Contingency Operation.” They have removed the words “Islamic extremism” and “jihad” from national security strategy documents. Further, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has suggested we replace the word “terrorism” with the more benign phrase “man-caused disasters.”

Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, an American-born Muslim, killed 13 American soldiers (one pregnant) and wounded 32 others in the fall of 2009 at Fort Hood. Eyewitnesses reported hearing Hasan shout “Allahu Akbar!” while on his rampage and the ensuing investigation revealed that Hasan was radicalized by known terrorist and American citizen, Anwar al-Awalaki, who holds dual citizenship in the United States and Yemen.
The evidence is overwhelming that Hasan was motivated to commit mass murder because of his allegiance to radical Islam, but the Obama Administration will not acknowledge it. As is noted in America at Risk, the after-action report on the Fort Hood shootings failed to mention the words “Islam,” “Muslim,” “Muslim Brotherhood,” “Sharia,” “Jihad,” or “Islamic terrorism.”
We are at war with an enemy that is patient and will use any means necessary to strike us – even by radicalizing our own citizens. Congressman King’s hearing on this important national security issue should have happened years ago. Unfortunately, liberal Democrats in Congress and the Obama Administration are beholden to political correctness, rather than keeping America safe.
