Jeh Johnson, the secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, raised some eyebrows recently when he likened the Quran to American values and Martin Luther King.
He made the inflammatory remarks during a ceremony by the Muslim Public Affairs Council to honor him for “his dedication to and personal investment in engagement with Muslim American communities across the United States,” Twitchy reported.
In “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance,” renowned activist Pamela Geller provides the answer, offering proven, practical guidance on how freedom lovers can stop jihadist initiatives in local communities.
After receiving his award, he spoke fondly of the Quran, MPAC reported.
In a tweet, MPAC quoted Johnson as saying: “‘The reading of the #Quran reminded me of 2 things that MLK said a lot, which are quintessentially American values’ @DHSgov Sec. Jeh Johnson.”
A few minutes earlier, MPAC had tweeted: “‘We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.’ – Martin Luther King, Jr.”
Social media users were quick to pick up on the report.
Nasreen Hosein retweeted: “DHS secretary Jeh Johnson says reading of Quran reminds him of quintessential American values.”
