Anti-CAIR Founder; My
Turn on Civil Rights
January 6, 2004, I was threatened with a lawsuit for defamation by the
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an Islamic terrorist
supporting front group which has received funding from Islamic
terrorists. The reason I was sued was because I dared to tell the
truth about CAIR, its "leadership" and members.
When I received the letter,
I shut down our work for a few days while I examined my options.
After a period of reflection, I made the decision to resume normal
operations and I also posted the letter from CAIR's attorney on the Anti-CAIR
The reason I refused to surrender to CAIR's blatant attempt at
intimidation was simple: I believe that all the information we provide
on CAIR is the truth, and that the truth must be defended, in order to
maintain a free society.
When CAIR sued me, it discovered that bringing a bogus "defamation"
case to silence free speech is a double
edged sword; just as CAIR could
examine and test my material and delve into my works, so I was entitled
to do the same
to CAIR. The question, as the discovery process
unfolded was: "Who was going to blink first"?
For our legal team
the answer was simple: we agreed to answer any/all questions in
depth. We had, and have, nothing to hide. Everything Anti-CAIR does is perfectly transparent,
we show our sources (where we can), we name names, and we provide links
that any reader can follow.
When my legal team, headed by Reed Rubinstein, submitted questions to
CAIR, we were rebuffed. CAIR finally realized that going after Anti-CAIR was not only a bad decision, it
had the potential to show CAIR for what it is: an Anti-American front
group for Hamas that was founded by Islamic terrorists.
from the suit they
initiated and the case was settled and dismissed with prejudice.
Not one word that CAIR objected to was changed on the web site.
No corrections were issued. No apology was made.
Why is this important?
Stanislav Shmulevich of Brooklyn has been arrested
on charges of criminal mischief and aggravated harassment for allegedly
placing a Koran (Islam's Holy Book) in a toilet at Pace University.
While most Americans can agree that placing a book in a toilet is
disrespectful, is it really a crime?
For CAIR's opinion,
we only have to listen to CAIR-NY "Civil Rights Coordinator" Aliya
"We commend the NYPD for its
appropriate handling of this case...we must all be concerned when
any actions cross the line from protected free speech to acts designed
to intimidate. Just as
there is a difference between someone burning a cross in their own
backyard and burning
that same cross in the yard of an African-American family, there is a
desecrating a religious text in a private setting and doing so in a
setting that will create
a hostile learning environment."
(Question: Why does a terrorist founded,
terrorist supporting organization need a "Civil Rights Coordinator"?)
Contrast the CAIR-NY statement with the following Quote
of Omar Ahmad, CAIR co-founder:
who stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping
so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to live
here, you have a responsibility
to deliver the message of Islam ... Islam isn't in America to be equal
to any other faiths, but
to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be
authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."
What is more threatening, putting a book in a toilet or being told that
Islam is in America to dominate all other beliefs?
Why hasn't Ahmad been arrested for a "hate crime"?
What about Nihad Awad, CAIR Executive Director when he publicly
"I am in support of the Hamas
Awad publicly states his support for an Islamist terrorist group that
has murdered innocent civilians, including American citizens, and there
is no "hate crimes" investigation.
Showing the banality
of evil, this from Omar Ahmad:
"Fighting for freedom, fighting
for Islam, that is not suicide ...
they kill themselves for Islam"
Ahmad celebrates fellow Muslims who commit terrorist suicide bombings
as "killing themselves for Islam"...the
very same Islam that CAIR consistently claims does not support
is it only CAIR's particular brand
of Islam that supports Islamic terrorism?
From a WorldNetDaily article:
"A group of American Muslims
produced a video that shows its members on a New York City
street corner declaring Islam's dominance over America as they tread on
U.S. flag and then rip it apart."
CAIR had nothing to say about the desecration of our national flag by a
group of Islamist supremacists from the "Islamic Thinkers
the group suffered no consequences for the defilement of the flag and
no mention was made of it being a "hate crime". No matter that
millions of veterans would disagree; rightly recognizing that the flag
represents our country, our values...and our comrades, fallen or
wounded in battle; not to mention those battling Islamist terror in
Shmulevich put a book in the toilet. But did he call for his
religion to be dominant in America? Did he publicly call for support
for terrorists who are killing American citizens? Did he salute
terrorists who commit suicide attacks? Did he trample our flag in
What Shmulevich did was in bad taste, it was insulting, but it was no crime.
Freedom of speech is my birthright as an American citizen; it is a gift
from God codified by our founding fathers in our great Constitution.
silence my voice would be to silence my soul; no man has, or ought to
have, that power.
If we won't stand up for Shmulevich, who
will stand up for us when the time comes ... ?
