Rep. Peter King: ‘If There Is A Threat…It’s Gonna Come From The Muslim Community’
Congressman Peter King just knows that if there is a threat, it’s going to come from Muslims. Don’t tell that to anyone in Charleston.
“Yeah, well — let me say, I am addressing it largely — or certainly, to a large extent — to, you know, the Muslim community in this region,” King said discussing terror threats with local radio L.I. in the AM on Tuesday. “Because if there is a threat, if there is gonna be something happening, it’s gonna come from the Muslim community.”
CNN reported earlier this week that various U.S. law enforcement agencies are boosting security efforts ahead of the holiday weekend.
King said Muslims should be quick to alert things to the police if they see things out of the ordinary.
“So they among all others should — if they see something, if they see someone who is new to the neighborhood, who they don’t think belongs there, or it’s unusual for him to be there or her to be there, if they hear of any talk of anything happening, if they see different groups gathering — that, tell that to the police.”
