Отчёт ЗОГу: Christie deftly defends appointment of Muslim Judge at RJC meeting

Speaking at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s meeting in Las Vegas on Saturday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie responded calmly, but strongly, to a question about Sharia Law, taking the occasion to address lingering concerns about a Muslim judge he appointed in 2011.

“Sohail Mohammed knows as much about jihad as I do, being an Irish-American kid from Newark, New Jersey,” Christie said of the Indian-American judge who immigrated to America as a child. “It is ridiculous and insulting, that because I nominated Sohail Mohammed — that people some how think that means I’m for Sharia Law. It’s crap,” he said to applause. “And I will not ever apologize for making him a judge — in fact, I’m proud of it.”

“Sharia Law won’t come into New Jersey,” Christie continued, “and to suggest otherwise is nothing more than internet blog B.S.”

Much has been made of Christie’s gaffe about “occupied territories,” but I think this exchange was probably more instructive in the long run. If Christie runs for president, this is one of the lingering questions he will have to continue to address. And his ability to defend this appointment — in what might have been a challenging environment — speaks well of his political courage and ability to communicate. The fact that Christie actually garnered some applause is indicative of his ability to do just that.

В сирийском городе Кесаб провинции Латакия исламисты (финансируемые, тренируемые, вооружаемые и покрываемые США, Саудами и Израилем) провели массовые казни жителей-армян, которые составляют большинство жителей города.
Есть кадры, на которых отрезаются головы, есть съемки расстрелов.
Резня шла в течение двух суток, количество убитых пока неизвестно - сообщает о 80 убитых, но похоже, что счет идет на сотни.
