Muslim activists protest state Sen. Ball's planned 9/11 hearing

Muslim activists have begun protesting tomorrow's Sept. 11 hearing on public protection and preparedness, which will be hosted by state Sen. Greg Ball (R-Carmel).

Ball, who is also the head of the state's Homeland Security Committee, has planned the meeting in which several people are expected to testify, including a woman who will speak about the Muslim faith and its laws.

Activists claim the senator has stacked his panel with people who are known anti-Islam speakers and have no experience in the religion or national security. They also argue that religion has nothing to do with the terrorist attacks nearly 10 years ago.

The hearing will begin at 10 a.m. in Manhattan. Representatives from Indian Point will be there along with law enforcement officials.
