Video: Peter King and His Terrorists

King proclaims he is a leader in the war on "Islamic" Terrorism....
What about other terrorism?

Peter Kings latest mailer has a pretty ironic quote in it. New York Post, 9/19/05

"Peter King is smart and solid and a longtime student of terrorism and homeland security matters."

Doesn't that just drip with irony.

This is a letter I sent today to Newsday:

Do we really need a former terrorist sympathizer as the Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee?

In a recent phone campaign to his constituency, Congressman Peter King’s recorded message stated that he is on the forefront of the fight against Islamic terrorists. Why does King need to qualify terrorism as being only Islamic? One would hope he feels like most people, that any terrorist act where violence is directed at innocent civilians, is horrific and should be roundly condemned, regardless of who perpetrated it. Or is King just trying to hide from his past?

In 1982, while speaking at a pro-Irish Republican Army rally King said "We must pledge ourselves to support those brave men and women who at this very moment are carrying forth the struggle against British imperialism in the streets of Belfast and Derry." And in 1984 he referred to the IRA as “a legitimate guerilla army", and "the legitimate voice of occupied Ireland". Due to his ardent support for the IRA, his name was even included on a Secret Service terror threat list during a 1984 visit by President Reagan to Nassau County. Does King see the IRA's violence against civilians as being different from that of Islamic terrorists? Or is it just political motivation that leads him to condemn Muslims only?

A recent King campaign mailer had the following quote: "Peter King is smart and solid and a longtime student of terrorism and homeland security matters." “Student” is certainly the right word. He learned terrorism from the best of them. Just ask the British.

Forgive me for butting in, as I'm not an American, I'm Irish, but I think the fact that your Congressman raised money for fascist terrorists in my country gives me an interest. Who you choose to govern you is none of my business, but thank you for spreading the word about this evil man.
