Video: Chris Christie Adamantly Defends Appointment of Muslim Judge

With the same vigor he displays when going after teachers unions, Chris Christie went after anyone who suggested that his appointment of Sohail Mohammed to a Superior Court judgeship in New Jersey was ill-advised, in much the same way. At a press conference, Christie referred to such opposition as 'ignorance' and concerns about creeping sharia law as 'crap.' This is what happens when the righteous indignation of Governor Christie is directed toward conservatives. At one point, he called people with such concerns 'crazies.'

I'm partial to checking out what Islamic terrorism expert Steve Emerson has to say about Sohail Mohammed before trusting what Christie has to say. First, here is Christie at the press conference, going after anyone who disagrees with his appointment. After the video, Steve Emerson's take on Mohammed.

Via MediaIte:

Now that it's quite obvious where Christie stands, check out this excerpt on Sohail Mohammed from IPT:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's nomination of Sohail Mohammed to be a state judge shows the governor's tin ear for radical Islam. Not only did he appoint a longtime mouthpiece for radical Islamists to be a judge, but Christie has also turned a blind eye to the activities of one of Mohammed's clients – radical imam Mohammed Qatanani, head of one of New Jersey's largest mosques.

Qatanani has a history of Hamas support and was related by marriage to a leading Hamas operative in the West Bank. This fall, Qatanani will return to a New Jersey immigration court, where the Department of Homeland Security is fighting to have him deported. In his initial application for a green card filed in 1999, government lawyers say Qatanani failed to disclose a conviction in an Israeli military court for being a Hamas member and providing support to the terrorist group.

Oddly, Christie – a Republican who was then the U.S. Attorney for New Jersey – sided with Qatanani against DHS, allowing a top lieutenant, Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles McKenna, to testify as a character witness at Qatanani's first immigration trial, and publicly embracing the imam at a Ramadan breakfast at his mosque. Christie later appointed McKenna as New Jersey's head of homeland security..
IPT goes on to say that Mohammed also defended convicted terrorist fundraiser Sami al-Arian. Emerson's IPT closes with this:
Christie's support for Islamists such as Qatanani and Mohammed betrays either naivete or calculation. Either is troubling.
Based on the press conference, I'm leaning toward naivete. Christie seemed to have a 'thou doth protest too much moment' that included a bit of projection when he described those who didn't agree with him as being ignorant.

Christie may be a good choice for Secretary of Education but he has no business being the Republican nominee.
