Jon Stewart thinks that it’s quite possible that Rep. Peter King (R-NY) might just hold American Muslims to a higher standard of conduct than other Americans — including himself. He pointed out that last year, King called for an investigation of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, then the face of the planned Cordoba House Islamic cultural center in lower Manhattan, because Rauf refused to call Hamas a “terrorist organization.” Stewart then rolled tape of King in 1995 saying “the moral standing of the IRA is equal to that of the British army.”
