Christie shut down the GW Bridge, now he’s selling one to Jews. via Christie deftly defends appointment of Muslim Judge at RJC meeting | The Daily Caller.
Speaking at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s meeting in Las Vegas on Saturday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie responded calmly, but strongly, to a question about Sharia Law, taking the occasion to address lingering concerns about a Muslim judge he appointed in 2011.
“Sohail Mohammed knows as much about jihad as I do, being an Irish-American kid from Newark, New Jersey,” Christie said of the Indian-American judge who immigrated to America as a child.
Christie knows taqqiya. But if he knows nothing about the number one threat discussed since 9/11 (with the ’93 WTC bombing emanating in New Jersey), then he is woefully ignorant and unfit not only to run for president but to run a state that is home to large numbers of jihadists and sharia supporters.
“It is ridiculous and insulting, that because I nominated Sohail Mohammed — that people some how think that means I’m for Sharia Law. It’s crap,” he said to applause. “And I will not ever apologize for making him a judge — in fact, I’m proud of it.”
“Sharia Law won’t come into New Jersey,” Christie continued, “and to suggest otherwise is nothing more than internet blog B.S.”
It makes one wonder why Chris Christie went out of his way to submit New Jersey State Police to Islamic training. After all, it’s just internet blog B.S., right?
We’ve got over 150 posts that suggest Chris Christie is part of the growing Islamic problem in New Jersey, including a New Jersey Muslim lawyer who admits litigating more than 100 cases involving sharia!! In New York and New Jersey alone.
Much has been made of Christie’s gaffe about “occupied territories,” but I think this exchange was probably more instructive in the long run. If Christie runs for president, this is one of the lingering questions he will have to continue to address. And his ability to defend this appointment — in what might have been a challenging environment — speaks well of his political courage and ability to communicate. The fact that Christie actually garnered some applause is indicative of his ability to do just that.
Not to mention Christie has for years been defending a known Hamas imam from being deported from New Jersey despite the imam lying on his immigration application.
Who was the lawyer for that Hamas-linked imam facing deportation? None other than Sohail Mohammed, appointed by Chris Christie.
The judge surrounds himself with those well-versed in jihad:
Mr. Mohammed is known to be one of the trustees of the American Muslim Union, categorized in a 2004 report by journalist Joel Mowbray as an organization with close to ties to the Islamic Center of Passaic (ICP).
According to the report, the ICP has had past ties to Hamas fundraising.
Update: Ryan Mauro has more on Christie’s “ridiculous and insulting” statements:
If that’s true, then the Department of Homeland Security is full of anti-Muslim bigots who rely on “Internet blog B.S.” Here’s what DHS had to say about Qatanani in a 2008 court filing:
“It is certainly suspicious when a person who has been convicted of being a member of, and providing services, to Hamas, who has personal ties to a Hamas militant leader, and a Hamas fundraiser also sends undisclosed cash to the West Bank.”
A report by the N.J. Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness described the existence of a network of Hamas sympathizers in the state and only mentioned one name: Imam Mohammed Qatanani, who Christie has staunchly defended from deportation and praises as a friend.
In November 2012, the Clarion Project discovered that four Islamists with extremist track records, including Qatanani, were members of the Muslim Outreach Committee formed by the N.J. Attorney General, Jeffrey Chiesa. Months after our report was published, Christie appointed Chiesa as an interim Senator following the death of Senator Lautenberg.
