Via Religion Clause, The Forward notes that incoming chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) has vowed to investigate Islamic radicalization in American mosques. It could become one of his first hearing topics. The piece speculates:

It is King’s prescriptions for addressing this trend that cause controversy. The hearings, still in their formative stage, are likely to be shaped by King’s view of Muslims as a community to be intensively monitored and systematically infiltrated. That is at odds with other views, held by some in law enforcement and counter-terrorism, who see American Muslims quite differently: as willing partners, if sensitively cultivated and understood as individuals who want to stop terrorism — but who bristle at being targeted as a community and pressured to spy on their own congregations.
