Second hearing on American Muslims scheduled
Advertisements [?]
Congress will hold a second hearing on radicalization of the Muslim-American community, next week, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King announced on Thursday night.

Kings first hearing on American Muslims, in March, sparked international controversy and attracted huge attention by the news media.

King, a New York Republican, said next Wednesday's hearing will focus on what he called the threat of Muslim-American radicalization in U.S. prisons.

At this hearing, we will look specifically at the extent of the dangerous problem of radicalization in U.S. prisons, King said in a statement Thursday. We have seen cases in which inmates have been radicalized at the hands of already locked-up terrorists or by extremist imam chaplains.
