Gov. Christie to nominate Muslim for N.J. judgeship

via Gov. Christie plans to nominate lawyer who represented post-9/11 federal detainees for N.J. judgeship | NJ.com.

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.

Group Training Airport Screeners Tied to Brotherhood

Posted by Ryan Mauro on December 16th, 2010

From CAN:

The Muslim Public Affairs Council, an organization tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, of giving cultural sensitivity training to over 2,000 airport security personnel at Los Angeles International Airport.

“Last week, MPAC completed a quarterly training for Transportation Security Officers (TSO) with about 2,200 officers receiving training on cultural awareness about Islam and Muslims,” the group’s press release reads.

“This was an important achievement for MPAC and the Muslim American community in light of the recent airport security changes and because TSOs are responsible for screening passengers and luggage.”

As pointed out by Connie Hair at Townhall.com, a comprehensive study by the Center for Security Policy called “Sharia: The Threat to America” warns that MPAC was founded by the radical Muslim Brotherhood.

 

“The founders of the Islamic Center for Southern California are Hassan Hathout and his brother Maher Hathout. The late Hassan Hathout was a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood Movement. The two brothers Maher spent time in an Egyptian prison during the early days of the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities there, led by the Brotherhood’s founder Hassan Al Banna,” the study reports.

The study also stated that MPAC has been instrumental in influencing the U.S. government to stop using terms like “radical Islam” that indicate a theological connection to terrorism.

MPAC says that it has put together programs to combat terrorism and denies being linked to extremism.

“As a community-based policy advocacy group working for the integration of Muslims into American pluralism, MPAC actively strives to effect policy reforms that uphold core American values and preserve Constitutionally protected freedoms of all Americans,” the group’s website says.

With the Afghan war entering its 10th year, completely undeterred by the American drone strikes in the Pakistani tribal region, al-Qaeda is putting the final touches to plans to recruit, train and launch Western Caucasians in their countries; the aim is to spread the flames of the South Asian war theater to the West.

Al-Qaeda began planning the operation in 2002, after the fall in late 2001 of the Taliban in Afghanistan, where the group had been given sanctuary.
