That's exactly what Rabbi to Rabbi Marc Schneier of The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding says he's doing.
” Bearing false witness against America’s Muslims" by asserting “that Muslims as a broad group are not deeply devoted to America’s safety and the peaceful interaction of its entire citizenry.”

SOME Christians believe anybody who doesn't believe the same thing they do is going to hell/evil/non-patriotic/whatever, but not ALL of them do...
Some Muslims believe that all non-believers must be killed, but not all of them do. There are wackos in all groups, but the muslims who have gone to that extreme are killing people. That is the big difference. If the mainstream Muslim just trying to go about having a life would band together and police their own religion, the jihadist would disappear back into the shadows.

King is vilifying and demonizing an entire community in a McCarthy era manner.
Didn't take long for that Alinsky tactic to rear its ugly head. [Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.] Sen. King is trying to find out why our own citizens turn to jihad against the US. He isn't vilifying a whole religion. Arguing this hearing using the "McCarthy" comparison doesn't hold water.
I'd hazard a guess that God doesn't see it that way.
I didn't, and wouldn't, dare say how God sees things. I said the Rabbi accused Sen. King of breaking a Commandment.
