Trenton, NJ - U.S. With New Jersey Governor Chris Christie recently making strides in both New Hampshire and national polls in his bid to win the GOP nomination, pro-Israel supporters are becoming increasingly concerned about his close ties to New Jersey’s Muslim community.

NEWSMAX.com (http://nws.mx/1S8fH3L) reports that among pro-Israeli supporters’ main concerns are Christie’s poor track record in New Jersey for taking on Muslim extremism, as well as his longtime support for some New Jersey Muslim leaders with ties and allegiances to terrorist groups, including Hamas.


A case in point is Christie’s continued support for Mohammed Qatanani, an imam who is currently locked into a deportation battle with the Department of Homeland Security over having failed to reveal a 1993 conviction in Israel for being a member of Hamas.

Christie has supported Qatanani both as a federal prosecutor as well as governor, and as recently as 2012 praised the imam at a Ramadan event hosted at the governor’s mansion.

The Jewish Voice & Opinion editor, Susan Rosenbluth, said, “Christie has honored imams with either terrorist ties or who have sympathies for radical Islam. He just doesn’t seem to know the difference as to who can be dangerous and who isn’t.”

I am even more leery of Christie's close ties to B. Hussein.

More and more it is beginning to look like Cruz may be one of the very few that Jews should consider. In first debate he said on his very first day in office, he would move embassy to Jerusalem. He is tough on terror and fiscally conservative. While Trump is also tough on terror, he has not commited to keeping Jerusalem undivided. He has also mocked the war hero John McCain, which seems to indicate he may be unbalanced. (He got himself out of serving.) He is also extremely rude to Jeb Bush.

Rubio also a decent fellow, but unclear where he stands on certain issues.

Pushiter yid.... the other candidates promise things that they probably won't be able to deliver, you obviously don't understand Trump because all Trump said was he would have to look into it, where as Cruz is saying he would move the embassy on day one is flat out a lie he will not be able to, presidents in the past have all said it's something they would do and it never happens

This is not news,all know Christie is anti-israel thats why him and Obama are secretly friends. Christie main law school competitors were Jews.

He is such a lowlife. He always defends the Muslims though they did nothing for him as a prosecutor but voted for him en masse for his pandering. What a terrible governor.
