Free Speech, 1; CAIR & Islamists, 0

By Debbie Schlussel
The conventional wisdom since 9/11 has been that this was the worst event ever for American Muslims and that they have less power than ever. The truth is the exact opposite for the most extreme elements of the American Islamic community. They have been empowered to try to force their extremist agenda and religious intolerance upon America and Americans.
Take CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, a HAMAS front group. Since 9/11, they’ve made threats and filed lawsuits against Americans, trying to silence them for telling the truth. One of those is my friend, Andrew Whitehead of Anti-CAIR. They sued him for $1.35 million, trying to shut him up. But Andy fought back.
And he had a principled, hard-working, highly skilled attorney in one Reed Rubinstein, of counsel at the law firm of Greenberg Traurig and a friend of mine. I’m proud to know Reed and even prouder that he succeeded in beating CAIR back.
Today, the New York Sun reported Reed and Andy’s tremendous victory over CAIR. The case was settled and the terms of the agreement were not announced. But you can figure out what happened here. It’s a huge defeat for CAIR.

Lawyer Reed Rubinstein Victorious vs. CAIR & Ibrahim Hooper

Andy Whitehead has not changed a thing on his Anti-CAIR site. He hasn’t apologized. And he hasn’t retracted or recanted. In fact, he has repeated all of the statements–all factual and truthful–that were the grounds for the litigious lawsuit designed to shut him up.
While CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper didn’t say much, Whitehead wrote on his website:

The policies and procedures of Anti-CAIR (ACAIR) have not changed in any way as a result of the CAIR lawsuit settlement. ACAIR, and ACAIR’s founder, Andrew Whitehead, will continue to work to expose and present to interested parties any information regarding CAIR that they feel is of importance.

And while CAIR’s attorney (who filed the failed suit), Jeremiah Denton III (the misguided son of American hero and former Senator Jeremiah Denton) declined to comment, Attorney Reed Rubinstein is talking–talking about what CAIR really stands for. (My takes on CAIR are here, here and here.)
This victory of the First Amendment over extremists is inspiring and a huge cause for celebration by all freedom-loving Americans.
The lesson here is not to sit there and take it from the ludicrous Islamist litigeratti. Even though it is a huge hassle and costly, too, you must fight back.
Another lesson from the story: If Islamists try to take away your rights as an American, hire Reed Rubinstein. He’ll fight back and make them go away.
Congratulations, Andy, Reed, and Anti-CAIR!

My understanding is the judge was agreeable to Reed’s discovery requests. CAIR didn’t want to expose their evil plans and dirty money and illegal alliances. I hope the Boston Muslims suing those who exposed their shady sweetheart deal for prime Boston property for a mosque get slammed with discoveries that make them ‘uncomfortable’ as well.

Great news but howís anti-CAIR doing under the financial strain? After all, the whole point of the law suit was to punish anti-CAIR by the cost of litigation.

Go Debbie:
Yes, we all sometimes go over the top, including me, however I understand where Debbie is coming from. You see I was once a gullible “Sweeny” no offence to the Irish but I love that expression. I too was once blind but now I see how the new muslim Jew-haters operate by utilizing old textbook anti-semitism distilled by Adolph Hitler and copied by not only old school bigots like the late Father Coughlin but by the new “Muslim” whatever they call themselves when they strike terror.
These too numerous to mention Hamas, or Hezboolah sponsored cells of hatred are no doubt subsidized typically by the likes of well paid attorneys such as Lena Masri and her Israel hating wealthy father Dr Haitham Masri who drives a Porche 911 (of course).
CAIR is a fifth column Hamas cover operating under the protection of the new PC Detroit-”Dearbornistan” chapter of the FBI now a home for formerly unemployable homegrown muslim criminals a.k.a “Walid”, a.k.a “Willis” who find both protection and recognition in CAIR while at the same time spouting repeatedly the tired old lies, and myths that Hitler predicted would be eventually accepted as truth.
If there is a Hussein in your heritage you are now apparently permitted in our PC Michigan courts to bleat your hatred against Jews, or as they like to call us “Zionists”.
This is why we are weak and confused, we have an FBI that apparently cannot identify a wolf in sheeps clothing (Walid-Willis) even if he was wearing a suicide vest and carrying a box cutter.
It was a miracle that that the childish underwear bomber at Metro Airport failed and was captured, no thanks to the FBI.
Please support Debbie by sending her what you can to defray the costs she is incurring fighting the gloved but blood stained hands of Michigan Hamas supporters. Expecially if your parents, and their parents were Jews who were once defenseless against this calumny. Contact her at “writedebbie@gmail.com”
