Congress Begins Hearings On Muslim Radicalization

Congress will begin a series of controversial hearings this week about the American Muslim community. Rep. Peter King (R-NY), the chair of the House Homeland Security Committee, will take testimony on what he calls the radicalization of Muslims in the U.S., and he'll ask Islamic leaders what they are doing to stop it. The high-profile hearings have concerned Muslims across the U.S. and in King's district on Long Island.
