Some American Muslims, including at least one in the Lodi area, are concerned that the House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Muslim extremists will unfairly target Islam.

"This seems to be a witch hunt," Lodi Muslim Taj Khan said. "They're going to bring in anti-Muslim propaganda to the hearing."

    Can we get hearings on the radicalization of Christianity?

    The hearings are warranted and could be revealing, if they don't mask the reality that the Muslim community has not shown itself to be any kind of a force which denounces terrorism from its own ranks. Mr. Khan wants all kinds of terrorism to be discussed - that evidences that he doesn't want to address the significant source of terrorism of the day: Islamic terrorism. Sure there are whackos of all sorts, but when there is one source from which most current acts of terrorism, or thwarted terrorism, originate, then one must go to that source. The hearings should, among other things, look at the Koran and its teachings. This is not just a religion: it is a political force. I fear the hearings will fail to have the guts to really reveal truths, as the politicians will again concede to political correctness and "tolerence."
