Four Hamas Supporters on Gov. Christie's Muslim Outreach Committee

The Muslim outreach committee was formed after New Jersey Muslims were gravely offended by NYPD surveillance and the presumption that New Jersey Muslims might be terror-prone. And the best way to do disprove all that was with an outreach committee containing non-terror folk like these.
Considering Governor Christie's background as a Federal prosecutor, he was more than qualified enough to know what some politicians might not. But…
Governor Christie had embraced Qatanani a while back and appointed his lawyer and AMU board member, Sohail Mohammed to a Superior Court Judgeship. A Christie associate had helped Qatanani fight deportation and Christie had publicly embraced the Hamas member.
But that's not all…
Ahmed Shedeed has his own Hamas ties. "He also attended a secret Brotherhood-organized meeting of Hamas supporters in Philadelphia in 1993. In the late 1990s, he served as the imam of the radical Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Virginia, which has extensive Brotherhood and Hamas ties."
And Imam Abdul Basit is even worse. "Qari Abdul Basit is the imam of the New Brunswick Islamic Center, a mosque founded in 1987 by the Islamist cleric Zaid Shakir, who continues to be a guest lecturer. Shakir legitimizes attacks on U.S. troops, specifically the hijacking of airplanes transporting soldiers. He argues that the 1983 Marine barracks bombing by Hezbollah was not an act of terrorism. "
Clearly these four fine fellows are representative of the kind of Muslim leaders who have good reason to be concerned about NYPD surveillance.
