NJ imam supported by Gov. Christie wants to replace First Amendment with sharia law

Who are the “crazies” now?

“This Sharia law business is crap. It’s just crazy. And I’m tired of dealing with the crazies.” ~ New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (supporter of NJ imam who is calling for sharia law in the U.S.)

We just posted two day’s ago on the rep for Hamas-linked CAIR who told Muslims “we need to Islamicize America.” Now this, via Imam Mohammad Qatanani Tells TheBlaze That Free Speech Mocking Islam Should Be Pursued by Dept. of Homeland Security | TheBlaze.com.

There are religions that promote turning the other cheek even when mocked, but it appears Islam is not one of them. According to one of the most prominent imams in North America, Islam never condones violence, but it also, under no uncertain terms, “ever accepts” speaking ill of the Prophet Muhammad.

In fact, so grave is mockery of the prophet considered, that the cleric – Mohammad Qatanani, who leads one of the largest mosques in New Jersey – even believes free speech that criticizes Islam poses a national security threat to the U.S. and that those responsible should be investigated by the Department of Homeland Security.

We, as Americans, have to put limits and borders [on] freedom of speech,” Qatanani, leader of the Islamic Center of Passaic County (ICPC), told TheBlaze. He explained that while Americans may ”have the freedom“ to speak their mind, ultimately, they “have no right to [talk about Muslim] holy issues“ as it will incite ”hatred or war among people.”

Qatanani said he thinks agitators who slander Islam, or, more specifically, the Prophet Muhammad, incite violence and hence, pose a national security risk that threatens the safety of Americans at home and abroad. Thus, America should disregard its First Amendment as it is typically applied and instead act in accordance with sharia law for the ultimate “good” of society.

In an exclusive interview with TheBlaze, the cleric, who was nearly deported in 2008 for failing to disclose his former ties to the terrorist organization Hamas on a 1996 Green Card application, explained that Muslims are required by Islam to respect the law of the land in their host-countries. He followed up that statement, however, with a treatise on how those who slander the prophet be pursued legally.

“My position is that White House has to say strong in its condemnation [of the filmmakers] and take this person to court. If he is innocent, we will accept that… The government has strong case against this person.”

When asked what can be done to prevent future attacks, Qatanani invoked Homeland Security again, suggesting that the department actually step-in to prevent artists, composers, movie-makers, or satirists (among others), from producing works critical of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad. He believes it is in America’s best interest to quell this kind of free speech as it “ruins” America’s image abroad and will ultimately hurt people.

Qatanani’s statements make it appear that, in so many words, the cleric is advocating for the U.S. to operate by sharia law – the religious law of Islam – when it comes to freedom of speech as it relates to Islam. If so, it would seem to echo comments in a previous report on TheBlaze outlining Islamists’ “10-year plan” to make slandering Islam unlawful on an international level. 

One of the most revealing insights made by the controversial faith leader came when he juxtaposed American freedom with the type of freedom permitted under sharia law.

The imam acknowledged that observant Muslims view freedom only through the lens of that which is permitted by the Quran and Sunnah, the two sacred texts of Islam, and is therefore much different from the way Americans view freedom.

“They [Muslims] think our [American] freedoms are too much,” Qatanani said. “The freedom of the American people is so different from their [Muslims’] freedoms. We believe freedoms have limits and rules, otherwise we will get people into trouble…Freedom according to Islam must be according to the Quran and Sunnah. You can do [anything] you like within the teachings of these two resources. This is the difference and main reason [for the conflict].”

“People there [in the Middle East] don’t understand the American Constitution and freedom of speech,” Qatanani said. We have to understand each other because misunderstanding is a killing issue… The issue of Prophet Muhammad is very delicate – they [Muslims] will not accept in any way, anybody who talks badly about Muhammad.”

He went on to explain that not even Jesus or Moses, who Muslims also revere as heroes and prophets, would be permitted to speak ill of their ultimate Prophet Muhammad and stated emphatically, and repeatedly, during the interview that Muslims will never “accept” or tolerate such slander even in the U.S. under the auspices of freedom of speech.

It should also be noted that Qatanani has been much admired, not only in the Muslim community but interfaith communities as well. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has even embraced the cleric, calling him a “friend.”

Muslims openly admitted they hoped Christie, as US Attorney, would work behind the scenes to help Qatanani stay in the U.S. and avoid deportation. Did he? We do know Christie doubled down on his support for the Hamas-linked imam who lied on his immigration papers to federal authorities (taqiyya?) as recently as August. This is why allowing Muslims to immigrate to the West is suicidal.

Will Christie defend freedom of speech or his favorite Hamas imam? Related posts below.

  1. Reblogged this on WindsorCOAct!forAmerica and commented:
    Maybe we should ban Islam from the US because their killing and lying and talking bad about my Messiah offends me…so why if a Kafir does that they go so far with their peaceful and tolerant “religion” and kill and riot and want all these international laws made, but they do it all the time and no one complains about it, no one dies, no one has to put on riot gear? Why

    • Muslims should be banned from the US. Their beliefs contradict everyone of our Constitutional rights. Muhammad was NOTHING but a Mentally Ill, Twisted Pedophile that believed in persecuting women, Children & Anyone else that wasn’t as Mentally Ill as he was. Islam is NOT a Religion, it’s a Sadistic Cult that Breeds worse than Rabbits… This SICKNESS needs to be eliminated from the planet & most importantly from the United States.

  2. Fat arse christie will be just like obama, he will side with the muslims if anyone turns against them. He is a traitor to the American Constitution and should not be in office. Peace to all non-muslims who know what christie is like.

    • Yes! I agree that Gov. Christie should step down from office who betrays the constitution. NO TO STINKIN’ NEO-COM like John McCain, Mitt Romney, etc and extreme SUB-HUMAN DUMB PIGS like OBAMA(OVOMIT) Joe” BITE ME” Biden, HIllary and Bill Clinton and all those Big Establishments, Bilderbergers, Council of Foreign Relations, Satanists are all believers of THE NEW WORLD ORDER and that FAT FUCKS George” SORE EYES” Soros and David Rockefeller-Pinko Commie fags.

  3. American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) should be made a National Law or amendment to The Constitution. The founding fathers didn’t think about it because they never considered we would be stupid enough to allow foreign laws in our court system. Boy did they underestimate how little common sense would be used in the 21st Century.
    How can the followers of Islam ” The Religion of Peace ” actually expect people to believe them that it is peaceful if they want to kill over a derogatory comment, book, movie, cartoon, speech, anything they don’t like, etc. ?

    Can Islam get along with the West ? NO. The followers of Islam prove it every-time they riot and destroy something or kill somebody over something that did not harm them. Getting physical over speech or other non physical things just shows they are still living the 7th Century lifestyle.

    ” Listen, and understand! That Terminator is out there! It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead “. ~ Kyle Reese in Terminator.
    Islam has been conquering places Terminator style since the 7th Century and their goal is to get rid of everybody else. Look at what is going on and you can see it is that way. They do not assimilate in any Western society. They get along until their numbers are great enough to take over. It’s been that way since their prophet left Mecca and went to Medina.

    There is no excuse for the murders these animals committed. The Western countries government current administration’s policies and actions coddling Islam following countries is just going to get more innocent people killed. People can try to claim that Islam is ” The Religion of Peace ” all they want, but anybody that follows the Quran and things written in Medina and afterwards are only trying to conquer the world. The Reality of their actions show the truth in regards to the 7th Century lifestyle hiding behind the cloth of religion. Where Islam goes and Sharia Law is followed, Freedom goes away.

    “ An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last “. ~ Sir Winston Churchill.

  4. Dear Imam Qatanani, your so called “religion” is nothing more than a fascist movement to take over the World! It is a phoney religion! You are a lair and a pig-dog! Your “Profit” is nothing more than the Devil Himself! Moo-Ham-Mud! Please take yourself and you Nazi movement back to whence you came! Otherwise you and your jihadist buddies will regret not doing so when “push comes to shove” in the future! Jesus Christ Is Lord!


  6. We as as Americans will always speak our minds and if you do cause violence, we will in return fight back with force to defend our self.

    A bunch of farmers kick Great Britain butt, No offense to our ally and we shall return united again The Amercian people and united to fight for a cause once again.

  7. What a puny little god this allah is! As for the imam; it is my opinion he is threatening America once again. He is in fact using our freedom of speech to preach treason.

  8. According to the book I just finished. Muhammad did not exist. He was invent a hundred years after his supposed existance.

    America ,beware the BLACKROCK financial group which is a major driver of bringing sharia to us.

    • If you are the reading type, pick up a copy of the two books imam feisal abdul rauf. They lay out the plan being executed in the U.S. today.

  9. Italy has denied religious status to Islam. Politicians cited extremist (fundamentalist) imams, polygamy and failure to uphold women’s rights by Muslim immigrants as obstacles to recognizing Islam as an official religion in Italy.

    In many European countries and Canada you can go to prison for speaking ill of Islam, even if it’s the truth.

    • Don’t know where you got that idea about CANADA if it were true me and a lot of my freinds and others I read about would be in prison.You can be charged for inciting violence against them or anyone else and that’s it.

  10. Wonder how much the Judas received for betraying his own country?

    He, over a year ago, was a VERY strong, decisive man. Now? He has been bought off and will end up losing his Soul as well.

  11. The only difference between Christie and a Muslim is he does not ride camels (YET)! This is what happens when Muslims infiltrate our government. Keep in mind politicians, especially RINOs will vote for Shariah/Islamic law to get their support.

  12. I suggest people interested in why Obama and Clinton took the position they did on the riots in the Middle East need to take the time to watch a briefing by a former DOD Islamic researcher named Stephen Coughlin on YouTube: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation and its Role in Enforcing Islamic Law.

    Read an article by Clare M. Lopez, former CIA titled Islamic World Tells Clinton: Defamation of Islam Must be Prevented — in America, By Clare M. Lopez, December 14, 2011
    Look up the OIC 10-year plan and the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights (NOTE: The OIC defines Human Rights as “Shariah” and Religion as ONLY Shariah.).

    Look up UN Resolution 16/18; now look at the authority Obama gave to Interpol when he signed Executive Order 13524. This allows them to come into the U.S. and pick up and American who says something about a Muslim the Muslim does not like.
    Wake up America, four more years of Obama and we are done!

  13. When you come to this country you accept our laws, language, religious beliefs or pack your bags and leave. You want to keep Sharia law go back to the countries that practice that backwards, women hating, in the dark ages, godless belief where they have no tolerance for our Christian beliefs. You will not be missed. This is our country and you will respect our beliefs or don’t bother coming here. Our country was founded based on Christian beliefs and I am sick and tired of cruds, discontents, liberals and every other piece of crap coming to my country and trying to rid it of our Christian beliefs. If you hate our beliefs why in the world did you come to this country. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. You want the freedoms this country allows because you sure don’t have them in your country. Liberals that hate this country should try Iran for a while and see how they like it. Obama and Michelle should be the first two to go. Respect us or GET OUT!!!

    • Non-moslems talk past moslems because islamites are the big dog in their neck of the woods and see EVERYONE else as inferior. They do not think for a minute of compromise. Its not part of their culture. They are right-you are dead.
      To balance this attitude followers of mohammad’s god allah have to be refuted using their own sources. This is hard, very hard. But it must be done.
      I think a start is deportation of criminal offenders and their immediate families to show we are serious. Theirs is a violence based culture. Only more violence will, initially, get their attention. From there its a matter of strict enforcement of our laws. No more pants wetting, shit eating liberalism when it comes to our country.
      You see, I, too, am tired of apologizing for being an American. I had enough of that when I got of the Army in 1974!

  14. Most important here is the need to pass the ALAC bills which are now being considered in 23 states. Do not believe the lies CAIR and their dhimmi political minions tell you. Sharia means no freedoms at all. It is a political idealogy in the guise of religion from the 7th century.

      A growing threat to our freedom of speech is the attempt to stifle religious discussion in the name of preventing “defamation of” or “insults to” religion, especially Islam. Resulting restrictions represent, in effect, a revival of blasphemy laws.

  16. I am not really worried, For the Courts and Congress knows of a few terms, They Would & Could be be held Lible, #1 Constructive {Treason} not limited to the 14th Amendment Section 3 , #2.U.S. Constitution: Article I
    Clause 3. No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed .
    Bills of Attainder

    #3. 42 USC § 1983 – Civil action for deprivation of rights ,U.S. Title 42 USC § 1985 – Conspiracy to interfere with civil & 42 USC § 1986 – Action for neglect to prevent , The Problem is not Speak out up or against this from what I read is a reaction for Be all Just means the failed Acts of Obama & Clinton to Secure a Two State matter for Islam as with Palestine Gaza West bank Etc , In Like-ness that was Done When Hitler Was used by the same groups in round the year 1933 to dis arm the jews rewrite the maps for Israel {jerusalem} to hand over the land rights to to such groups to secure the Oil etc coming from the middle east. This all is nothing new you just see more of it because of the news etc.

  17. Gov. Chris Christie was wrong in giving his support to Qatanani. Qatanani was found to have ties to terrorists (Hamas) and knowing this Gov. Chris Christie still gave Qatanani support. Bad move. To many of our brave warriors have fought and sacrificed against terrorists with the same ambitions as Hamas. A Politician that would give support to a terrorist or appeaser of terrorism would certainly not get my support and I would hope they would not get the support of the American public no matter what party they belong to. While our soldiers are fighting against enemies of Freedom, We The People need to vote in those who don’t support enemies of Freedom.. I know too that the economy is an important issue but I believe there is more at stake here. God Bless America.

  19. The “Imam” is a propagator of hatred. His “religion” is not a religion, but a political movement designed to subjugate all “infidels” with which it comes into contact. Basically, his recommendation of Sharia and silencing of our First Amendment rights is an act of proposing tyranny.

    • Did you know many law schools have courses on understanding islamic (shari’a) law? These courses are designed to be neutral/pro islamic law.
