Skip to comments.Four Islamists on Gov. Christie’s Muslim Outreach Committee

A RadicalIslam.org investigation has discovered that at least four Islamists sit on New Jersey Governor Chris Christies Muslim outreach committee, which was formed after Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa concluded in May that NYPD intelligence-gathering operations in New Jersey did not break any laws.
All of the information about the Islamist backgrounds of these four committee members is publicly available, yet the Christie Administration picked them to serve as liaisons to the Muslim community of the state. As a result, they are having private meetings with N.J.s top security officials. This is just the latest example of Christies embrace of Islamists that should be shunned, not exalted.
The discovery that the Islamists were on the committee was made when RadicalIslam.org obtained a previously unreleased list of committee members present at a September 5, 2012 meeting at the Leroy Smith Building in Newark.
The four committee members of concern are:
Imam Mohammad Qatanani, whose deportation is sought by the Department of Homeland Security for not disclosing on his green card application that he was arrested and convicted by Israel in 1993 for his involvement with Hamas; Ahmed Shedeed, a fervent supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood and President of the Islamic Center of Jersey City, a mosque with a history of Islamist leadership. Its website currently contains disturbing statements about jihad, the West, wife beating and polygamy; Mohammed Younes, the President of the American Muslim Union, a group with Islamist leadership and close ties to Qatananis mosque, which was founded by a Hamas fundraiser; and Imam Abdul Basit of the New Brunswick Islamic Center, a mosque founded by a radical cleric. In July, it held a Brotherhood-linked seminar featuring multiple extremist speakers.
Addressing the committee were: Attorney General Chiesa, NJ State Police Superintendent Colonel Rick Fuentes and the Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness Director Edward Dickson. These addresses were followed by dialogue with committee members.
Other NJ officials that were present at the meeting were: First Assistant Attorney General Calcagni, Special Assistant Christopher Iu, Special Assistant Paul Salvatoriello, State Police Major Gerald Lewis and Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness Community Affairs Chief John Paige.
Profiles of the Four Islamist Committee Members
Maybe some Freepers would be able to serve on the governor’s Christian outreach committee?
NJ is Muzieville, half of NJ has moved to NC.
In 2008 there were those who mentioned a third party and were told “There’s not enough time so we need to fix the GOP from within.” Then people got all excited about REPUBLICANS like Christie. Guess he fooled us.
Any truck with islamists is essentially Treason as far as I’m concerned. That includes the so-called President.
Christie turns out to be a big idiot. Hugging Obama and calling him the messiah for showing up after a storm was bizarre. Was he threatened? Bringing C.A.I.R. operatives into his administration nails the fact that he’s a big, big faker. New Jersey deserves better.
Yep..like a blonde who was all hot for the “biker boy’.
Sad but true.
