Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, founder and President, American Islamic Forum for Democracy
Dr Jasser testified in the King congressional hearings on Islamic radicalization scheduled for Thursday.
If there is one real positive outcome from the King hearing, it is getting voices like Dr Jasser's out in the public.
I am one who, while I strongly support this hearing. does not have a lot of confidence that it will accomplish much. I do not blame this on lack of effort by Rep King, I think his desire to make these hearings count is sincere.
The issue is with the current inhabitant of the White House. In the end, Congress cannot do much more than shed light on an issue. The responsibility for enforcing the nation's laws, setting international diplomacy, and providing for national security is entrusted to the Executive branch.
If the hearing accomplishes nothing more, it may finally start a national conversation about radical Islam and put a stop to the death by political correctness that has become our national policy.
