Peter King, I Am Not With You!

Dear Rep. Peter King,
This is in response to your email
letter addressed to me dated March 8th.
You got it wrong, Mr. Chairman,
on all accounts. Let me explain!
First of all, I do not support or
stand by you. You are conducting a Kangaroo Court hearing against Muslims
like me in America. Your hearing is nothing more than a witch hunt against
our fellow Muslim American citizens.
Secondly, your false claim
about Muslim terrorism, radicalization, extremism or what ever you want to
call it is unfair and un-American, as it targets Muslims only, while
ignoring all other acts of terror. Besides, how does a man like you with
ties to Europe's bloodiest and most notorious terrorist organization become
the Chairman of USHomeland Security Committee, let alone paint all Muslims
with the same terrorism brush?
As the old saying goes, Mr. King, " if you
live in a house of glass, you do not throw stones."
distinguished lawmakers are on record condemning your Mickey
Mouse hearing. Rep. Michael Honda of California and Rep. Beanie Thompson of
Mississippi both wrote OpEd pieces challenging your false claims against
Muslims and disputed all of your allegations.
Finally you ended your
letter with, and I quote, "As I go forward, it is very reassuring to know
that I will have good Americans like you on my side."
I am not so
sure as to how you came to this conclusion. Have you or any of your staff
ever read my letters?
Well Mr. Chairman, you were half right on that
regard. I am a good American. In fact I served the country that I love for
20 years. And I was willing and ready to die for America if need be. But, I
am not on you side.!
To give you further proof, here is a copy of a
letter I wrote last night after I watched you on CNN spewing your venom.
BTW, the was sent to local news publications.
".US Rep. Peter
King is a flat liar!
He has told CNN news in an interview on March 7th
that AG Eric Holder stated/told him that Muslims in America keep him up at
night. That is a false claim. There was no where in AG Holder's
quoted statement that the word "Muslims" was ever uttered.
To set the
record straight, here is AG Holder's exact statement:
"It is one of
the things that keeps me up at night,” Holder said. “You didn’t worry about
this even two years ago — about individuals, about Americans, to the extent
that we now do. And — that is of — of great concern.”"The threat has changed
from simply worrying about foreigners coming here, to worrying about people
in the United States, American citizens — raised here, born here, and who
for whatever reason, have decided that they are going to become radicalized
and take up arms against the nation in which they were born"
King's statement against Muslims is dishonest and disingenuous.Americans
deserve facts not a demoguage."
