Christie's Sharia Crap
by Robert Spencer
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie this year appointed a Muslim attorney, Sohail Mohammed, to a Superior Court judgeship in Passaic County. Mohammed was the lawyer for Mohammed Qatanani, a Muslim Brotherhood operative who pled guilty to membership in the jihad terror group Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. But when questioned about the wisdom of the appointment, Christie stoutly defended Mohammed and went out of his way to slam opposition to Sharia in the U.S. as "crap."
What is actually "crap" is the idea that Chris Christie is fit to be President of the United States.
"Ignorance is behind the criticism of Sohail Mohammed," Christie declared, without bothering to explain how "ignorance" provoked Qatanani's guilty plea, or involvement in Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, or Mohammed's other ties to Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas-linked individuals and groups. But Christie's most egregious statements came after a followup question about the spread of Islamic law, Sharia, in the United States. "Sharia law has nothing to do with this at all. It's crazy!" Christie sputtered. "The guy—Sohail Mohammed—"is an American citizen!" He declared that "this Sharia law business is just crap … and I'm tried of dealing with the crazies."
