Oklahoma became the first state to pass a proposition that Sharia-based court decisions and foreign law should be banned, an idea any patriot could love. But on Monday morning a federal judge, Vicki Miles-LaGrange, issued a temporary restraining order blocking Oklahoma’s new state constitutional amendment—that had just been approved by 70% of the vote—which forbids courts to decide cases using Islamic law (Sharia). The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is trying to block the law, and for now they’ve succeeded:
The restraining order will remain in place until another hearing on November 22.

Yet whatever temporary successes Muslim supremacists appear to attain, I believe that the suit and other actions like it are a good thing. The Islamic supremacists are showing their hand and revealing their agenda. The Ground Zero mosque revealed the true face of Islamic supremacists to the American people and unmosqued their real goals, and now, so, too, will the lawsuit being brought by the Hamas-linked, Muslim-Brotherhood front CAIR against the good people of Oklahoma. My colleague, Robert Spencer, an expert on Islam, asks about the Oklahoma Sharia law hearings, “Will Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani be available to testify?”

Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani is awaiting death by stoning in Iran after being falsely convicted of adultery. That’s Sharia.

"Ground Zero Imam" Avoids Being Served Complaint, Later Is Charged With Nuisance, Emotional Distress, Assault http://www.stopshariahnow.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1290:qground-zero-imamq-avoids-being-served-complaint-later-is-charged-with-nuisance-emotional-distress-assault&catid=79:shariah-law&Itemid=101 http://www.stopshariahnow.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1290:qground-zero-imamq-avoids-being-served-complaint-later-is-charged-with-nuisance-emotional-distress-assault&catid=79:shariah-law&Itemid=101 Lawsuit filed by Freedom Watch & Declaration Alliance on behalf of first responder Vincent Forras against Ground Zero Mosque citing "intentional infliction of emotional distress". View the complaint.

New York, NY

Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, today announced that the “Ground Zero Imam” and his mosque, the Cordoba House/Park51 Project, were served with the class action complaint filed by First Responder Vincent Forras. The complaint alleges that the building of the planned mosque would be a legal nuisance and that the entire project, to be built in the immediate vicinity of Ground Zero, is a blatant attempt to inflict emotional distress on the inhabitants of New York City; in effect a form of psychological terrorism.

Both the Imam and the mosque have ties to terrorist interests, and a large donor to the Imam's enterprises gave handsomely to the Holy Land Foundation, a convicted terrorist front group. In addition, during an interview on CNN’s “Larry King Live” the Imam refused to say where the money was coming from to build the mosque at Ground Zero. There is other considerable evidence connecting the “Ground Zero Imam” and his mosque to persons and entities associated with terrorism.

When Freedom Watch, plaintiffs’ counsel, sought to have the complaint served personally upon the defendants, including the Imam, servers were prevented from giving it to them. In this regard, plaintiffs sought to serve the Imam after his speech yesterday at the Council for Foreign Relations in New York City.

New Law Protects Free Speech from Foreign Courts http://www.stopshariahnow.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1238:new-law-protects-free-speech-from-foreign-courts&catid=79:shariah-law&Itemid=101 http://www.stopshariahnow.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1238:new-law-protects-free-speech-from-foreign-courts&catid=79:shariah-law&Itemid=101 The Securing the Protection of our Enduring and Established Constitutional Heritage or SPEECH Act, passed by both the House and Senate and awaiting President Obama’s signature, prevents lawsuits brought against American writers in foreign courts from limiting free speech in America. “It protects authors, journalists, and publishers by preventing U.S. federal courts from acknowledging or enforcing a judgment in a foreign libel suit that goes against the First Amendment... The bill also empowers authors and publishers to clear their names by showing that a foreign judgment is not in line with American law, even when the foreign plaintiff has not tried to enforce the judgment in the United States.”

Washington, D.C.

A bill to protect authors, journalists, and publishers from “libel tourism” recently passed both houses of Congress. The bill, known as the SPEECH Act, prevents lawsuits brought against American writers in foreign courts from limiting free speech in America. The Securing the Protection of our Enduring and Established Constitutional Heritage or SPEECH Act passed the Senate and House in July.

Libel tourism refers to bringing a defamation lawsuit in a foreign country that is unrelated to the published material and where protection of free speech is weaker than in the United States. The goal is usually to silence or intimidate the journalist or author. Recent defamation lawsuits in the U.K. and Canada brought against American authors spurred legislators to take action.

Director of the American Center for Democracy Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld, who documents and publishes terrorist organization’s funding sources, has been campaigning for protection from the judgments of foreign courts. After she exposed how Saudi billionaire Khalid bin Mahfouz funded al-Qaeda, Hamas, and other terrorist organizations in her 2003 book "Funding Evil: How Terrorism is Financed and How to Stop It," Mahfouz sued her for libel in London.

This law will insure that the U.S. Constitution will not be subjugated to Shariah Law. This was in response to a child custody case in a Maryland court, which deferred to Shariah Law. Under Shariah Law, fathers have custody over mothers, and more rights in general, in a court of law.

Within minutes Monday a legislative committee repudiated both Islamic and British law.

Neither, perhaps, represents an immediate threat to justice in Louisiana, but it was not entirely an alarmist and xenophobic stunt when the committee approved two bills by Rep. Ernest Wooton, R-Belle Chase. Mostly, but not entirely.

One of Wooton's bills, which provides that no foreign law shall be applied here if it violates a right guaranteed by the American Constitution, is by any rational measure superfluous. But it is not unknown for immigrant litigants to invoke the tenets of Sharia to which, the committee was told, the Maryland courts deferred in a child custody case.

CAIR Admitted Fundraising for Convicted Terror Group http://www.stopshariahnow.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=891:cair-admitted-fundraising-for-convicted-terror-group&catid=79:shariah-law&Itemid=101 http://www.stopshariahnow.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=891:cair-admitted-fundraising-for-convicted-terror-group&catid=79:shariah-law&Itemid=101 CAIR has admitted to raising money for The Holyland Foundation, a Shariah charity that was indicted for funding Hamas. In the wake of September 11, CAIR used its website to ostensibly raise funds for victims of the attack on the World Trade Center, including fire fighters. The money was being sent instead to The Holyland Foundation, creating more victims of terror. The check above is payable from the Holyland to CAIR in 1994, as they helped give them a head start in operations costs. CAIR, in turn, raised funds for the terror charity.

Washington, D.C.

While the Council on American-Islamic Relations has contended its designation by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a major terror-finance case is unjustified, the group has admitted in a legal brief it solicited donations in the wake of the 9/11 attacks for the Holy Land Foundation, the convicted American fundraising arm for the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.

The admission – a previously unnoticed declaration in talk-radio host Michael Savage's lawsuit against CAIR – was attached to a brief filed this week in the Muslim group's suit against a father and son who carried out a six-month undercover investigation in which they obtained 12,000 pages of incriminating documents and made secret audio and video recordings. Lawyers for P. David Gaubatz and Chris Gaubatz filed a motion to dismiss the case this week that contends CAIR has no claim because it does not legally exist.

Gaubatz lawyer Daniel Horowitz, who also represented Savage, attached a copy of CAIR's admission with the filing of his motion this week.

Defendants are claiming that CAIR cannot sue as they changed their official name in 2007 in the fog of the Holyland Foundation trial. Says counterterrorism expert Steve Emerson, “"it certainly appears that CAIR changed its name due its being named as an unindicted co-conspirator…CAIR does not exist legally and therefore cannot sue."

Washington, D.C.

A lawsuit by the Council on American-Islamic Relations against a father and son who conducted an undercover counter-terrorism investigation of the controversial Muslim group could backfire badly, according to several counter-terrorism experts observing the case.

As WND reported, CAIR claims P. David Gaubatz and his son, Chris Gaubatz, stole sensitive material from the group's Washington office under false pretenses. But lawyers for the defendants filed a motion to dismiss the case this week that contends CAIR has no claim because it does not legally exist.

Just two weeks after CAIR was named by the Justice Department in May 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist finance case in U.S. history, the organization changed its name to the Council on American-Islamic Relations Action Network, explains attorney Daniel Horowitz in a 34-page brief filed in federal court in the nation's capital.

While attorneys representing the co-author of "Muslim Mafia" were preparing late today to honor a federal court order to return documents obtained from the Council on American-Islamic Relations in an independent undercover operation, FBI agents served a warrant on a Washington, D.C., law office for the same documents.

The FBI agents entered the capital law offices of Cozen O'Connor tonight and issued a warrant for thousands of pages of documents as well as audio and video recordings gathered by P. David Gaubatz and his son Chris in a daring and lengthy undercover penetration of CAIR in which the younger Gaubatz served as an unpaid intern for the group that was labeled an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator in last year's Holy Land Foundation trial.

Charlie Kyte, executive director of the Minnesota Association of School Administrators, says "I have deep concerns that we have a religious institution and a public school that seem to be way too close to each other." The Muslim American Society shares space with TiZA at its Inver Grove Heights campus, and appears to have paid for Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison's 16-day pilgrimage to Mecca in 2008. TiZA received about $4.7 million in state funding this past school year.

Minnesota, U.S.

Fresh controversy is swirling around the Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy after the revelation that an Islamic nonprofit with ties to the Inver Grove Heights charter school paid for a Minnesota congressman's pilgrimage to Mecca.

State education officials last year investigated a substitute teacher's allegations that the public charter school promoted Islam in the classroom. The officials determined no laws had been broken, but they recommended the school modify its Friday communal prayers and provide after-school busing at different times for students who were not participating in religious activities.

The public spotlight has not eased. TiZA is now involved in two lawsuits: The American Civil Liberties Union has sued the school, and TiZA has sued the state Education Department.

The full Texas Second Court of Appeals yesterday rejected an attempt by a coalition of seven Islamic organizations to further their defamation lawsuit against an online writer and have him branded as less than a "real" journalist.

As WND reported, after Joe Kaufman wrote an article for the online FrontPage Magazine exposing terrorist connections in two American Muslim groups, he was sued by a swarm of Islamic organizations, none of which he had even mentioned in his article.

Delray Beach, FL

The Florida Security Council, a counterterrorism organization targeting the growing threat of radical Islamic terrorism, filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the Marriott Hotel in Delray Beach, Fla., for breach of contract for its abrupt cancellation of an appearance by controversial Dutch politician Geert Wilders.

The council was sponsor of a free speech summit and conference in April in South Florida honoring Wilders.

The cancellation of the event came as a complete surprise to security council Director Tom Trento, who stated, "The fact that the Marriott sent me an e-mail at 7 p.m. on a Friday night canceling our well-planned event made it very plain to me that something was up. I suspected there was more here than a breach of contract."

Wilders, a member of Parliament in the Netherlands and leader of the Party for Freedom, has been outspoken on the issues of Islamic extremism and freedom of speech. His views, including a call for a ban on the Quran, have forced him into guarded isolation.
