In Support of Hearings on the 'Radicalization of Muslims'

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Congressman Peter King's (R-NY) controversial hearings, which begin Thursday, on the radicalization of American Muslim youths, is being met with tremendous anger from Muslims nationwide. But one Muslim American who is in favor of these hearings is Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, the president and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. He believes whatever we have done to battle the radicalization of Muslim youth in America has not worked, and says "we need to figure out a new strategy."

This interviewee was sell-spoken and made sense. But the interviewers were terrible. When Jasser alluded to data from Janet Napolitano, one NPR interviewer said: Why should you believe her?
What if Jasser said data from Obama? What would the response be?
Get into objective reporting and you will have a better shot at keepng funds.
Ask questions without raising your voice and showing you are one-sided.

I thought Dr. Jasser was incredibly articulate and forthright. Why did the interviewers have to be so confrontational ? At the end of the interview, they didn't even have the good manners to thank him for appearing on the show. Really, you ask posters to be civil, how about the interviewers?
