Radicalization of Muslims

Committe Chair, Peter King, is holding meetings acknowledging that some muslims, not all, are responsible for violent acts. However, the sole muslim congressman, Keith Ellison, is pointing finger at King for blaming the entire Muslim community for evil violent acts of few individuals. Ellison is calling this to be "the very heart of stereotyping and scapegoating." King however is denouncing this claim, saying the hearing are not "un-American." Muslim leaders feel that they are being unfairly targeted by this committee and King. The bigger question begs to differ is how and if this will affect the muslim leadership in the United States as well as Middle Eastern reactions to these accusations.
