Congressman Ellison Gets Emotional at Muslim Radicalization Hearing.

Peter King's (R-NY) (above) Muslim Radicalization Hearing being held today to foster communication about the controversial Muslim faith, was full of emotion of those who testified.

Among them, Minnesota congressman Keith Ellison.

Watch the video here.

The hearing continued to be a source of hot topic debate with both sides showing the pros and cons of the religious faith.   On one side the subject of Muslims is "the big elephant in the room", as stated by Melvin Bledsoe who's son was converted to the Muslim faith. He said Americans should become more aware of the homegrown terrorist Muslim groups.

On the complete opposite side of the spectrum Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), called the profiling of Muslim Americans "an outrage". 

On yesterday at the National Press Club in Washington, DC a response was held by those of the Muslim faith, in response to prior to King's hearing.
