Chris Christie Nominates Sohail Mohammed to NJ Superior Court

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.

Sohail Mohammed

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.

From Daniel:

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.

From Debbie at Right Truth:

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.

From Discover The Networks on the American Muslim Union:

AMU chose not to endorse or participate in the May 14, 2005Free 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.”

From the New York Times:

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.

Chris Christie “Amusement” at Sarah Palin (video)

  • Christie just fell from grace with, well with a whole lot of folks…….

    • Randy, I’m not hearing much about this anywhere. I wonder if the conservative media is protecting him?

    • Mohammad Qasem

      The Muslim population in the USA is a major factor in the economical stability and demographic enrichment. As an American Muslim, I am not going to take the BS of Emirson or any sub-human of his like. Sohail has been an active member of the Muslim community and a very productive US citizen, he is contributing to the hardworking tax payers who will never accept a closed door because of your way of life. It is time for Emirson and all of those tea party members, racist AHs, and ignorant sub humans to go and burry themselves in the dirtiest of the dirt, under the slamming MS/AL sun and dig deeper like an earth worm or a beetle in the BS of their cows an pigs and to stop hustling honest politicians like NJ governor.

        Mohammad…..You just showed the difference between YOU and anyone not of your same faith or race. YOUR Muslim beliefs believe anyone not of your kind ARE “SUB HUMAN”. My faith teaches me that we are all children of God…even YOU. There are no “SUB HUMANS” AS YOUR RELIGION TEACHES. I’ve always said that the irony of all religious fights is that when we all die we’ll all discover that we all have the same God. The jokes on us. But that word you use and the word I’ve heard over and over again by many Muslims is “SUB HUMAN”. It’s wrong and the source of many conflicts between Muslims and everyone else. Also…it would help if Sohail Mohammed denounced Sharia Law to the public who has a right to know his beliefs regarding this very important issue. Christie saying it means nothing. TY for your time.

        • I’m human too!

          lmbo, is that the best you’ve got?
          I was searching up on Sohail Mohammad for a paper I need to write and when I saw this post, I had to laugh. It’s ridiculous.
          Why don’t people seek knowledge about things they are unsure of instead of spreading false rumors and suspicion, or do they fear that just by reading legit sources, they too will become Muslim…as if the Qur’an has magical, mesmerizing powers that clog your mind from judgement …because ya kno, that’s soooo realistic. 0_0
          Thanks for your time, which honestly might be better used gaining knowledge than reading my post.
          God have mercy on you and may God always Bless America.

  • Chris Christie earned my permanent disdain over his stupid remarks about the GZ mosquestrocity. Now anyone who continues to support him will also have my disdain. Stupid dhimmi.

    • Hi Zilla, I really like West. I think he is a hero and I would like to keep his very, very conservative voice in Congress, and one day in the Senate. He is a powerhouse, and I really think he will be invaluable.

  • This is so sad.. Now I have to rethink my idol. Sarah again shows she has much more class than someone who makes a joke out of her. I’m now a bit sckeptical of Chris.. maybe he should stay Governor

    • Yeah David, Christie just “isn’t all that.” We gotta move on. Surely there is someone else who can effectively beat up on the teacher’s unions.

      • You saw that article I sent you this morning about Palin?

        • David, yes, and I just got it posted. Thank you. Interesting article. I disagree with Ziegler that Obama will win in 2012 barring a disaster. Obama IS the disaster.

          • I agree with you. Last election we had a very weak candidate.. If Palin got the nomination she’d be a Momma Grizzly going after a threat to her children.. I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes when she goes on the attack.. oh wait.. we need to watch our arguments and make them more correct.. A BIG BULLS EYE WILL BE ON HIM AND HE’LL BE FIRED BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. His argument that she is stupid and inexperienced… well excuse me… has learned a lot these past two years… she won’t just roll over… She’ll make him roll up in a ball and he’ll be whimpering..Liers get caught in their own lies and he’s about to have his bucket cleaned.

    If he’ll do it to New Jersey, he’ll do it to the United States. The first Muslim nominee for the SCOTUS would be a step into the abyss.

    • The American Thinker article is a jewel. I notice it doesn’t give an authors name. Yes, it appears Christie has a long history of pandering to Muslim interests. He is off my list, and at this point I would only vote for him if my choice was between him and Obama.

      I appreciate your visit:-)

  • What is wrong with this? Why such a hue and cry about it. After all its time to move above politics and think rationally. I applaud Chritie’s decision… At least one small step in right direction…

    Sohail Mohammed is an unprofessional, poor excuse for a lawyer.

    I was a former client of his from 2001-2005. My ex-family and I are non-Muslim, non religious. He handled my ex-wifes and her mother’s immigration case and botched it up royally by making a novice mistake another lawyer pointed out 4 years later–causing severe stress to our family at the time and years of wasted effort and money by taking the wrong course with USCIS. We just felt like he took our money and didn’t care about non-Muslim clients.

    His secretaries never returned our calls and were rude to us when we visited his offices to demand a meeting after months of ignored appointment requests. I’m willing to bet he hasn’t changed much, since men like him seldom do, and can’t believe he’s getting promoted by Christie.

    Wow, you people are such bigots. “how does Sharia go in his household?” What the hell does that even mean? History will wash people of your stupidity away with time, just as it did the Jim Crow era and just as it will for people bigoted against gay men and women.

  • Goran Preda

    Well, homosexuality isn’t really accepted in the vast majority of Muslim households, despite what Muslim advocates/defenders/officials would exhibit in the public domain. Alex, i’m just saying you can’t group Muslims and gays in the same discriminatory category.

    But I digress, I think Sohail Mohammed is just a shoddy lawyer, with shoddy and with clear bias towards his Muslim special interest–which my family suffered directly from.

    • Goran Preda

      *with shoddy ethics* (pardon)

    • Equality for all

      @ Goran Preda – Wow, you are such a bigot and a homophobe. Go crawl back into your pungent den of inequity. The stench is killing us.

      • Goran Preda

        What are you talking about? Why are you quick to assume I’m homophobic? Did make a statement that you would expect to see at a church protest in front of a gay soldier’s funeral? (to reference from incidents covered by the media) NO! I just pointing the flaw in that logic of grouping discriminated Muslims with discriminated gays, when discrimination against gays is strongly present in religious points of view, Muslim, Christian, or otherwise. I’m an Atheist, I promote science and point out flaws in logic, sorry I was born this way. Last I checked, the Constitution applies to me as well. And I support gay peoples right to be happy in this world and have equal protection under the law. Enough? thank you. I posted here to point out Sohail Mohammed’s bias against his own kind as representative of how he treated non-Muslims–my family after we cut him a few checks for a few thousand bucks.

        • Equality for all

          How would you know what is and isn’t accepted in Muslim households? Or other religions and cultures? You AREN’T Muslim (I’ll be the Atheist celebrates Christms, too) and your blanket statements don’t cover anything. Tolerance isn’t a topping on salad. Your ignorance and racial bias comes across loud and clear. Methinks he doth protest too much. This isn’t about science and logic. It’s personal. If you didn’t think you had something to prove, you wouldn’t have posted.

          • Goran Preda

            Well yeah it’s personal, and an epitome of a larger phenomenon. FYI i studied Islam as part of a humanities program is College, got A’s in the classes. I can explain to you what the 5 pillars of Islam are, the Salat, Hadj, Shahada, etc. I also don’t need to prove here that religious zealotry is a cornerstone of both Islam and Christianity between the public executions of women by stoning, and family honor killings, the murder of a descendant of Van Gogh for a newspaper cartoon, to the jesus camps of the midwest, USA. But that’s not what I came here to do. I came to voice out that I sat with Sohail Mohammed at a table once, he made promises to me, i paid him thousands for it, and he did not deliver at the end of it all, and that cost me 5.5 years of my life–and such one day i flipped on to public access TV and saw him leading a group of Muslim Activists protesting something or other, and I knew where his loyalties laid. So you can sit there and read this text and get pissed off, and rebut from whatever ideals you hold about this or that, but I dealt with the man directly, and he’s a dishonest crook, if not a zealot himself. The end.

    Think it happened on accident that the courts got filled with disproportionate amounts of catholics before? Now hello to disproportionate power from another backwards religious minority!!!
