Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is urging those in government and the administration – amidst the turmoil, persecution, and slaughtering of thousands in the Middle East at the hands of Islamic radicals – to focus on the “plight of Muslims living in this country” and the “discrimination they face.”
“I personally committed to speak out about the situation that very often people in the Muslim community in this country face,” Johnson said at the Countering Violent Extremism summit. “And the fact that there are 1.5 billion Muslims in the world and that the Islamic faith is one about peace and brotherhood.”
