Muslim Extremism in America
A Suggested Agenda for Congressional Hearings
by Jerry Gordon, New English Review, June 2, 2007
Last summer during his successful re-election campaign in Connecticut as an Independent, Senator Joe Lieberman read Bruce Bawer’s book, While Europe Slept. He was shocked at what he learned about the looming Islamization occurring in what many have taken to call Eurabia-after Islamic scholar Bat Ye’or’s book of the same name. This topic emerged during his campaign speeches on foreign policy and homeland security keyed off of the Senator’s role as a co-sponsor of the 9/11 review Commission. As Chairman of the U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee (HSGAC), the Senator and his staff have scheduled a series of ‘exploratory hearings’ on this vital and important topic.
