Rep. Peter King (R-NY).

Fox News – Radical Islam poses a threat to the United States as a whole, but is particularly dangerous to American Muslims who are targeted by terror groups, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said Sunday in defending upcoming hearings on radical Islam.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., is facing a backlash, including Sunday protests in New York, over his decision to hold hearings on the threat of Islamic radicalization. King said he’s surprised the American-Muslim community is not embracing his hearings because they are the ones most victimized when radical elements infiltrate their communities.
