Washington Post's Sekulow: American Muslims Should "Demonstrate Their Commitment To The United States"

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

It's long been clear that Washington Post blogger Jordan Sekulow doesn't like Muslims. Now he wants American Muslims to prove their loyalty to their country:

[W]hen Rep. Peter King (R-NY) announced that as chair of the House Committee on Homeland Security, he will hold hearings on "radicalization of the American Muslim community and homegrown terrorism," how did the Council on American-Islamic Relations respond? CAIR calls the coming hearings a "witch hunt" that "is just going to further marginalize American Muslims and demonize Islam."

Instead of attempting to "demonize" Americans concerned with homegrown radical Islam, Muslims should actively participate in these hearings to discuss how their faith is combating terror.

These hearings are an opportunity for American Muslims to demonstrate their commitment to the United States and fighting terrorism. Missing this chance to impact the discussion would be a gross miscalculation.

It seems rather unlikely that the Washington Post would retain the services of a blogger who writes that, say, Jewish Americans should "demonstrate their commitment to the United States." American Muslims, however? They're fair game for loyalty tests at the Post.
