(Congressman) Pascrell signed an affidavit opposing the deportation on behalf of Qatanani, the Imam of one of the largest mosques in New Jersey, calling him “peace-loving” and “magnanimous.” That’s hard to square with information provided by Steve Emerson, one of the world’s leading terrorism experts. Emerson wrote that Qatanani’s deportation case centered on the Imam’s lying on his immigration documents about having been arrested by Israel for membership in the terrorist organization Hamas.
Among all the other troubling things about the Qatanani case is that it has shown off how New Jersey Muslim groups have subverted the state’s politicians getting them to support Hamas terror….
….This is the terrorist supporter on whose behalf Congressman Pascrell intervened.
“Mohammad Qatanani, spiritual leader of the Islamic Center of Passaic County, posed a hypothetical question: What if the charity did support the children of suicide bombers? What would be wrong with that, he wondered?
‘There is a big issue between supporting them before, not after,’ suicide attacks, he said.
The whole point of supporting those children is to provide incentive for their fathers to kill themselves while murdering Jews. And Pascrell’s reason for supporting Qatanani is to get the votes of a man who supports those murders.
