From the very post YOU put up:
"Sohail Mohammed specialized in immigration law with a practice in Clifton. He was involved in training “over 7,000 members of the law enforcement community about islamic Cultural and Religious Practices.” As a lawyer he represented dozens of detainees swept up by law enforcement after the 9/11 attacks in 2001 and mohammad Qatanani, a Paterson imam who in 2008 fended off charges by the Department of Homeland Security that he had ties to Hamas. Mohammed publicly defended Palestinian islamic jihad operative Sami Al-Arian following a 2003 indictment which alleged he was a North American leader of the Palestinian islamic jihad and the Fort Dix Six in 2007. He is a founder and board member of the American Muslim Union."
This doesn't sound to me like someone who prefers "American" (Judeo-Christian) culture to his own.
He has purposely made a point of DEFENDING islamic extremists.
No, he may not wear an "explosive vest", but he certainly seems interested in supporting those who DO.
That says enough about him, as far as I'm concerned.
Christie picked this guy?
That says a lot about HIM, as well.
I said it above, and will state it again:
The governor can appoint whomever he chooses.
But such appointments (like elections) have consequences.
The consequence of that pick, for me, is very personal.
Mr. Christie will NOT be getting my vote.
