Litigation Jihad is a real threat.
It’s time to fight back! flame smiley

Frivolous litigation is an abuse of our legal system. Islamists are using it as a tool to shut down opposition. Even if the defendant eventually wins, the cost of legal defense can become overwhelming. The threat of legal action is enough to deter many people from exercising their freedoms of speech and of the press.

This could happen to any of us.
But the consequences of failing to confront jihadism would be even worse!

    Tefft: The trial is, of course, frivolous — “legal jihad.” It is an effort to shut me up and then shut me down. This is cloaked as an employment issue (which if it was truly, I would not be joined with the NYPD in the law suit since I was neither an employee of NYPD nor an employer of the Muslim. We have a motion to dismiss pending, but if that is rejected then we go to trial on a First Amendment basis.

    Jamie, I need all of the help I can get. I have an excellent lawyer but he’s not cheap. Friends have set up a Legal Defense fund for me here — or checks can be made out to the Bruce Tefft Legal Defense Fund and sent to:

  • From CAIR website: TX Muslims Sue FL Islamophobe for Defamation

    Islamic organizations in North Texas are seeking libel damages in a lawsuit against Joe Kaufman, leader of the Florida-based Americans Against Hate.

    Kaufman visited Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington on Oct. 14 to lead a protest against Muslim Family Day, an event celebrating the end of Ramadan, a period of holy days on the Islamic calendar marked by fasts and prayer.

    The lawsuit, filed Oct. 12, asked a judge to prohibit Kaufman from threatening, harming or inciting violence against anyone associated with the outing, in addition to libel damages, according to court records.

Media Legitimizes Islamic Extremists While Defaming Muslims

On October 29, 2007, Texas court held a hearing on TRO filed against Joe Kaufman. The next day the Internet was flooded with the following headlines:
“Islamic Groups Sues Joe Kaufman of Americans Against Hate”
“Islamic groups sue man who arranged protest”
“TRO Against Anti-Muslim Group Extended”
“TX Muslims Sue FL Islamophobe for Defamation”

We already addressed the “Anti-Muslim” and “Islamophobe” aspects earlier. There are other, more subtle, but also more dangerous issues with those headlines. We cannot stress enough how important it is to draw a distinction between moderate Muslims and Muslim extremists, between Islam and Islamism. However the aforementioned headlines and articles associated with them completely ignore that distinction and mislead their readers in the process.

The infamous Nazi rallies are never described as Christian events because most Christians are disgusted with the Nazis. However, when Islamofascist organizations put out their events, it seems to be universally acceptable to describe those events as Muslim or Islamic. Why such double-standards? Why does the media shun Christian extremists, but embraces Muslim extremists? Is there a hidden agenda or just complete ignorance?

Western Muslim community and Western media must address the following issues arising from ignoring the difference between Islam and Islamism:

1. Radical Muslims are legitimized as mainstream
2. Moderate Muslims are bunched together with the radicals, which gives credence to the notion that all Muslims are radicals and gives rise to Islamophobia

We ask everyone in the media:
– If you do not understand the difference between Islam and Islamism, stop providing your opinions on the subject
– If you do understand that difference, please make it clear every time you address the subject and call everything by its proper name

Some of the favorite media questions are “where are the moderate Muslims” and “why are they silent”. Well, we are right here. It’s you who don’t want to hear what we have to say.
