Palm Beach County Administrator Bob Weisman said the county is still deciding whether or not to discipline public information officer John Jamason for a 9/11 Facebook post skewering Islam, according to the Palm Beach Post.
“Never forget. There is no such thing as radical Islam. All Islam is radical. There may be Muslims who don’t practice their religion, much like others. The Quran is a book that preaches hate,” the message said, according to WPTV.
Weisman said that if Jamason were not a “merit system employee who is protected by State law from arbitrary termination” he may have been fired by now.
