|Congressman Keith Ellison Weeps|
While giving his testimony at the Congressional hearings on March 10, 2011. Tearfully describing the story of a Muslim-American first-responder paramedic who died on September 11, 2001, Ellison criticized New York Republican Rep. Peter King for leading the controversial hearings that have reignited a national debate over how to combat a spate of home grown terrorism.

Rep. King's Congressional Hearings targets Muslims unfairly.
Starts at 9:30 AM on Thursday, March 10
Coalition of Interfaith and Civil rights groups have stood alongside American Muslims in opposition to Rep. King's Congressional hearings on "Muslim Extremists" and say that Muslims are often the ones who help investigators thwart any possible terror attacks. We believe that Rep. King's baseless accusations and biased inquiries will only serve to arouse suspicion of law-abiding citizens, provide fuel for Islamophobes and put the American muslim community in serious danger.

Media Reports decry bigoted hearings against American Muslims:
President Obama in his State of the Union speech|
"And as extremists try to inspire acts of violence within our borders, we are responding with the strength of our communities, with respect for the rule of law, and with the conviction that American Muslims are a part of our American family."
