Muslims must lead 'charge against radical Islam,' witness tells committee

Date: March 11, 2011

 Muslim Americans must solve the problem of Islamist radicalization in the United States, a U.S. House of Representatives committee was told March 10 in a hearing decried by some as un-American.


Among those condemning the series of hearings was a coalition of 20 religious organizations, including the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, The New Evangelical Partnership for the Common Good, American Baptist Churches USA, Sojourners, Interfaith Alliance, United Methodist Church and U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
