Kahf is the former Board Chairwoman of Hamas-linked CAIR in New Jersey and the current Chairwoman of a Muslim Brotherhood-founded mosque led by an Imam who was arrested and convicted of being a member of Hamas.
Following her Superior Court of New Jersey appointment on March 23, 2023, Islamic supremacist attorney Nadia Kahf became the first hijab-wearing judge in the United States. Kahf, a Syrian-origin family and immigration attorney, took the oath of office on Thursday with her hand on a copy of the Quran – a book that teaches supremacy, hatred, and hostility. Furthermore, it dehumanizes and stigmatizes non-believers.
Islamic governments across the world celebrated Kahf’s appointment. Islamic news sites in Morocco, India, and Turkey. “Nadia Kahf becomes New Jersey’s first hijabi judge,” wrote Sinar Daily, a news site in Malaysia. The Turkish government gleefully highlighted on their English news station:
Kahf has a background serving as a leader in a radicalized and terror-tied organization and an Islamic center founded by the Muslim Brotherhood that wants to overthrow our Constitutional republican form of government and replace it with Sharia.
She will serve as a Passaic County Superior Court judge after New Jersey’s left-wing Governor, Phil Murphy, nominated her last year. Governor Murphy has a long history of working with Islamic terror-tied groups and individuals to harm the state he was elected to protect. The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in New Jersey has continuously praised Murphy’s work.
This relationship between Governor Phil Murphy and Islamic supremacists is known as the Marxist Red and Islamic Green axis. The radical pairing has a long history of uniting to destroy their common enemy: those who believe in national sovereignty and individual freedom. Then, to achieve their own goals, they use one another until their goals are achieved, and only at that time will they turn on one another and, in the end, fight to destroy the other.
Sharia-compliant Kahf is a former Board Chairwoman of CAIR in New Jersey. She has been a CAIR-NJ board member since 2003. So it is not surprising that Governor Phil Murphy, who is in bed with CAIR, nominated Kahf for the Superior Court judicial role.
Unsurprisingly, Kahf chose to take her oath on the Qur’an. CAIR’s Founder and Chairman Emeritus Omar Ahmad had made his terror-tied organization’s goals clear when he said,
Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant…The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
Hamas’ charter states:
“The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: ‘The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.” (related by al-Bukhari and Moslem).’
CAIR has also received funds from other Hamas entities and organizations affiliated with Al Qaeda. In addition, a document retrieved from CAIR headquarters reveals internal discussions at CAIR to support Osama bin Laden.
The day before Kahf was sworn in as an NJ Superior court judge, CAIR-NJ Executive Director Selaedin Maksut warned, “Nadia may be the first to wear a hijab on the Superior Court bench in New Jersey, but she certainly won’t be the last, Insha Allah.”
Nadia Kahf is the leader of a controversial mosque
Kahf is also the Vice Chairwoman and Interim President of the controversial Muslim Brotherhood-founded Islamic Center of Passaic County in New Jersey. The Mosque’s Imams have radicalized terror-tied backgrounds and affiliations, were educated at radical institutions, and engage in anti-western, dangerous sermons. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has been a previous guest and speaker at the troubling Mosque.
“Mohammad El-Mezain was one of the founders in August 1989 and the first imam of the Islamic Center of Passaic County (ICPC) in New Jersey. El-Mezain was convicted of funneling money to Hamas in November 2008, along with four others in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF)-Hamas financing trial in Dallas. El-Mezain reportedly stated in a 1994 speech at the ICPC that he raised $1,800,000 inside the United States for Hamas activities,” reports the Investigative Project on Terrorism.
Dr. Mohammad Qatanani
The now senior imam at the center, Mohammad Qatanani, is accused of lying on his immigration documents by failing to disclose his arrest and conviction in Israel when he confessed that he was a member of Hamas and provided support to the terrorist group. Qatanani is also related by marriage to a leading Hamas operative in the West Bank.
Investigative journalist Daniel Greenfield questioned why Qatanani has yet to be deported despite lying about his terrorist past. The journalist reported, “Imam Mohammed Qatanani, who was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that is behind both al-Qaeda and Hamas, despite his own guilty plea to being a member of Hamas, and despite the fact that even in the United States, he had defended a charity that provided funds to children of suicide bombers (this is done as an incentive to reassure terrorists that if they die, their families will be taken care of), was not deported.” Instead, he is now the leader of a mosque, that the new Passaic County Superior Court judge leads as Chairwoman.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a global religious and political movement that seeks to spread Islamic law. In a 1991 document, a member of the American branch explained that the group’s goal was ” a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
The antisemitic and anti-Christian Imam Qatanani has given many radical sermons at the center and participated in rallies and programs. In addition, he has voiced his support of terrorists, their organizations, Islamic jihad, and Islamic law (Sharia). See Qatanani’s troubling quotes regarding HLF, Palestine, jihad, and Hamas here.
Shaykh Osamah Salhia
Another of the mosque’s imams, Shaykh Osamah Salhia, spent eight years abroad studying Islamic Law (Sharia) at Al-Azhar University- Faculty of Shari’ah in Cairo, Egypt. He also went on to teach numerous classes on Sharia (Islamic law).
This university is considered the most prestigious institution in all of Sunni Islam. However, it is also infamous for encouraging extremism and terror, along with teachings that include unrelenting jihad and hatred for non-Muslims. For example, one professor female professor at the school teaches that Allah allows Muslims to rape non-Muslim women.
The school’s troubling curriculum also addresses degrading dhimmis [Non-Muslims Living in Muslims Countries], conquering a country through emigration, and how to deal with non-Muslim residents once the land has been taken over.
In a February 22, 2019, sermon at the Islamic Center, visiting Imam Baker falsely claimed that the IDF Chief Rabbi called to rape Palestinian women to boost soldier morale. He also said that homosexuality would never be accepted in Islam, but “we [Muslims] are not kicking anybody off the Empire State Building since Muslims live in a non-Muslim country that does not follow shari’a law.”
Why is the United States knowingly allowing a dangerous imam and a terror-tied New Jersey Superior Court judge to operate, recruit and train soldiers, including young children, in their Mosque? This Imam and judge are supported by the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist groups who wish to see the United States governed by Sharia or Islamic law.
Furthermore, why are well allowing Governor Phil Murphy to appoint Nadia Kahf to the Passaic County Superior Court when she has shown her allegiance to Sharia and terrorists trying to overthrow our constitutional federal republic form of government?
