King notoriously held five congressional hearings on what he considered the proliferation of radical Islam following September 11th. King was invited by the mosque’s president, and he used the visit to explain his comments which many see as disparaging to Muslims.</p><p></p> Sat, 26 Apr 2014 12:45:27 +0000 Charles Lane 16462 at http://wshu.org Rep.
