Reiner, who was reportedly responding to the attack on Saudi oil tankers the U.S. government blames Iran for, also said in an interview that Islam is an evil religion, its a violent religion.

The religion is a cancer the Islamic position is in fact a cancer, he said, according to a neighborhood news siteTapInto. Reiner also reportedly said that this view didnt apply to all Muslims, but only to the Quran.

He then said that President Donald Trump would will do the right thing when talking about expecting an attack on Iran to secure interest of allies. Its not clear if hes aware that Saudi Arabia has amajorityMuslim nation.

He also defended his Facebook post as a figure of speech.

I do not believe, nor do I support the use of nuclear weapons against Islamic countries, he reportedly said. But the religion is a cancer and has to be dealt with accordingly.

He later apologized for his comments, but the Raritan Township decided to take appropriate action, NJ.com reported.

On Wednesday, Reiner stepped down, and the Township shared a resolution censuring him for his derogatory, discriminatory and offensive public statements.

On Friday, the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) New Jersey applauded this move.

The bigoted, hateful and threatening social media posts shared by this elected official are symptomatic of the Islamophobia that grips this country today, CAIR-NJ Executive Director James Sues said in a statement. Bigoted views such as these should not be tolerated by any government agency.
