And now the Muslims have their panies in a wad over his remarks. Way to go, Peter! Good luck in your run for New York Governor!
And here’s the expected report from CAIR, the terrorist front group.
(NEW YORK, N.Y., 4/17/2009) – The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NY) today called on American Muslims and all people of conscience to urge their elected representatives to repudiate Rep. Peter King’s (R-NY) bigoted response to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) report released earlier this week about the rising threat of right-wing extremism.
In interview on MSNBC, Rep. King stated in part: “[Napolitano] has never put out a report talking about look out for mosques. Look out for Islamic terrorists in our country. Look out for the fact that very few Muslims come forward to cooperate with the police. If they sent out a report saying that, there would be hell to pay.”
“We urge elected representatives to distance themselves from King’s bigoted remarks,” said CAIR-NY Community Affairs Director Faiza N. Ali. “Sweeping generalizations about Muslims and mosques have no place in serious national security discourse.”
Ali said King has a long history of rhetorical hostility toward the American Muslim community. He has stated that there are “too many mosques in this country” and has endorsed racial and religious profiling. SEE: King Endorses Ethnic Profiling
