MASSAPEQUA PARK, N.Y. — Planned hearings by the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security on the “radicalization of the American Muslim community” drew noisy protesters on both sides of the issue to his Long Island office on Tuesday.......About 100 opponents of the hearings were confronted by about the same number of supporters, some waving “Don’t Tread on Me” flags and chanting slogans favoring the hearings. For a time, protesters from each side argued heatedly in face-to-face confrontations in a parking lot adjacent to the congressman’s office before police stepped in and separated the groups with barricades.

At one point, hearing supporters sang “God Bless America,” while moments later their counterparts sang, “This Land is Your Land.” No arrests were reported....Republican Rep. Peter King said afterward that his planned hearings, set to begin in Washington on March 10 and expected to be held periodically for 18 months, are “absolutely essential” to the country’s homeland security.

“Al-Qaida is recruiting right under our radar screen,” King told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. “We are not going to cave to political correctness. There is a real threat to the country from the Muslim community and the only way to get to the bottom of it is to investigate what is happening.“Civic and religious organizations, including the Interfaith Alliance Long Island, Pax Christi Long Island, the Muslim Peace Coalition USA, and the Long Island Alliance for Peaceful Alternatives organized Tuesday’s event as a “pray-in” to oppose King’s hearings.
