Victory for Free Speech in Texas

We read:
"In a major victory for the increasingly embattled freedom of speech, the Texas Supreme Court has just denied a petition by the Islamic Society of Arlington, Texas and six other Texas-based Islamic organizations to review their case against human rights activist (and FrontPage Magazine writer) Joe Kaufman. The case has already gone against the Islamic groups in the initial decision as well as on appeal, but they seem determined to silence Kaufman, and could conceivably try now to take the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Islamic groups’ suit against Kaufman is a cynical attempt to silence him and prevent his dissemination of truths about them that they would prefer unwary Infidels didn’t know – specifically, the terror ties of Islamic groups in the U.S. Ironically, however, none of the groups that sued Kaufman were actually mentioned in the article they claimed libeled them.

As frivolous as their charges against Kaufman manifestly were, their implications were ominous. Leftists and their Islamic supremacist allies, unable to refute the evidence and arguments their opponents present, are resorting to intimidation both legal and physical.

Joe Kaufman has won another victory this week, but the Islamic supremacist machine in the United States has by no means given up its larger jihad against free speech and free thought. Those who are determined not to be silenced must settle in for a long, hard fight.

...and I'll bet these frivolous lawsuits have cost him an arm and a leg to defend against.

The radical Left and the Mooselambs have the same agenda, and that is, to destroy America. What the mindless Leftists don't realize is that their heads will be the first to roll. And that can't be all bad!

I say let it go to the U.S. Supreme Court. If it's decided that the Islamic groups are violating the Constitution, then so be it. We do not (yet) recognize Scareia law, so the U.S. Constitution MUST be upheld in these manners.

If the Muslims don't like it, they can go to the Middle East. They HAVE to go there on a pilgrimage anyway, so they can just stay.
