Governor Chris Christie, now embroiled in Muslim nominations, Hamas connections, terror detainees and the American Muslim Union has nominated Sohail Mohammed, an attorney for terrorists to the New Jersey Superior Court. In Mohammed, Esq.’s bio, the American Muslim Union membership is not mentioned among his many distinguished achievements.
So many questions the people of New Jersey seem not interested in: 1) how does Sharia go in his household? 2) do his children attend a madrassa? 3) are his daughter and wife in burkha?
It matters. If sharia law is dominate in his life, he will eventually try to make it dominate in ours, one court appointment at a time, one elective office at a time.
New Jersey, the Garden State, has just taken its first step toward becoming the Sharia State, with Governor Christie’s nomination of Sohail Mohammed, an attorney to detained terrorist suspects, to a Superior Court judgeship in Passaic County. The Sohail nomination continues Christie’s unfortunate pandering to the American Muslim Union and the Islamic Center of Passaic County.
Passaic County has the second largest Muslim population in the country. And the Islamic Center of Passaic County is the state’s largest mosque, and it’s the only one run by an an Imam who was a member of the Hamas terrorist organization.
But when the United States government attempted to deport Mohammed Qatanani, New Jersey’s pols and wannabe pols like Christie, quickly came to his aid. Despite the fact that Mohammed Qatanani was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that is behind both Al Qaeda and Hamas, despite his own guilty plea to being a member of Hamas, and despite the fact that even in the United States, he had defended a charity that provided funds to children of suicide bombers (this is done as an incentive to reassure terrorists that if they die their families will be taken care of), Qatanani was not deported.
The pioneering terrorism researcher, Steve Emerson called it, “a disgrace and an act of pure political corruption”. He stated, “I know for certain that Christie and the FBI SAC had access to information about Qatanani’s background, involvement with and support of Hamas.” Defending Qatanani required Christie to pit himself against the Department of Homeland Security, which wanted him deported. But the Department of Homeland Security wasn’t running for office in New Jersey. Christie was.
Now Christie has nominated Sohail Mohammed, Qatanan’s former lawyer, to a Superior Court judgeship. Sohail Mohammed is a board member of the American Muslim Union, an organization that has interlocking leadership with groups that have fundraised for Hamas and hosted a Hamas speaker. The American Muslim Union is closely interlinked with Qatanani’s Islamic Center of Passaic County.
The headlines say “Muslim picked for New Jersey Bench“, but that’s not the entire story, it is who the Muslim is, who he is connected to, and what those connections think of the United States and the danger they are to America’s freedoms. We know they want Sharia law and what better place than having their own on our courts.
AMU chose not to endorse or participate in the May 14, 2005 “Free Muslims March Against Terror,” an event whose purpose was to send “a message to radical Muslims and supporters of terrorism that we reject them and that we will do all we can to defeat them.”
Mr. Christie, a United States attorney, was a regular guest at that group’s annual Ramadan dinner and spoke highly of Mr. Mohammed’s work.
I have noticed that Chris Christie has a dark side. While his pithy, political straight-talk is enthusiastically welcomed by Conservatives, his mean-spirited amusement at the expense of Sarah Palin ended my hopes for his future as a guardian of conservatism. See that video below.
Please read both articles. Daniel has much more on Chris Christie’s fascination with Islam. UPDATE: The Lonely Conservative has several other points about Christie’s not-so-conservative records. One I knew about and had forgotten, and one I had no clue. If you need further evidence that Christie is not conservative, read The Lonely Conservative – or read it anyway – qe need to know these things.
