I just read that Governor Chris Christie plans to nominate Sohail Mohammed for a state Superior Court Judgeship. Mohammed is a Muslim attorney who represented many of the detainees who were apprehended post 9/11. Mohammed has been (and may still be) a member of the Board of Trustees for the American Muslim Union (AMU), a group with a bit of a dubious history. Below is the article from Creeping Sharia……
TRENTON — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he will nominate a lawyer who represented many detainees swept up by the federal government in the post-9/11 dragnet for a state Superior Court judgeship.
Christie announced his intention today to nominate Sohail Mohammed of Clifton to the judgeship in Passaic County.
Mohammed won the respect of law enforcement agencies for trying to build bridges between law enforcement and the Muslim community after the Sept. 11 attacks.
As federal prosecutor for New Jersey, Christie oversaw several terrorism-related cases during the same period.
Christie still must formally nominate Mohammed, and the state Senate must approve the appointment.
Mohammed was, and may still be, on the board of trustees for the American Muslim Union (AMU). The group has a history unbecoming of a potential state superior court judge:
Four current and former senior leaders of the American Muslim Union were associated with a mosque established by the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development. The Treasury Department designated Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development a Specially Designated Global Terrorist in December 2001. Senior members of the group have expressed support for Hamas.
How does Mohammed feel about Islamic sharia law?
Is it just me or does anyone else have a problem with this? Governor Christie has done some RINO like things lately but this one scares me.
What do you guys think?
