King's mosque comments met with backlash

Comments made by Rep. Peter King during a TV interview are being strongly condemned by Long Island's Muslim community.
In an interview with MSNBC Friday, King said there is "a real problem" with some mosques on Long Island, so much so that several of them are under police surveillance.
The remarks, King says, were preceded by a report released from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warning that right-wing extremist groups were trying to recruit disgruntled troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
While some Muslim leaders have called King's comments bigoted, Omar Chaundry, a board member of the Islamic Center of Long Island in Westbury, says the Seaford congressman is just misinformed.
"Calling him a bigot is going too far," Chaundry says. "But I think he is out of the loop."
Chaundry says his Westbury mosque cooperates with police on a regular basis.
