Compilation of Hearings on Islamist Radicalization - Volume II: Joint Hearing Before the Committee on Homeland Security, House of Representatives, and the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, United States Senate, One Hundred Twelfth Congress, First Session, December 7, 2011   [open pdf - 709KB]

This is the December 7, 2011 hearing on "Homegrown Terrorism: The Threat to Military Communities Inside the United States" held before the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Peter T. King: "This is the fourth hearing in a series the House committee has held this year on the serious threat of violent Islamist radicalization within the United States. Our committee has previously investigated radicalization within the Muslim-American community generally, radicalization in U.S. prisons, and probed the recruiting and radicalization carried out inside the United States by the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Shabaab group in Somalia. This joint investigative hearing will seriously examine the emerging and growing danger to our men and women serving in uniform. I believe it is particularly appropriate that we do this on Pearl Harbor Day, when so many troops were killed in a surprise attack 70 years ago." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Peter T. King, Joseph L. Lieberman, Bennie G. Thompson, Susan M. Collins, Paul N. Stockton, Reid L. Sawyer, Abdul-Rasheed Muhammad, Michael L. Weinstein, Laura W. Murphy, Islamic Society of North America, S. Floyd Mori, Shoulder-to-shoulder: Standing with American Muslims; Upholding American Values, and Daris Long.
