YES! Federal Judge rules that an ‘expert’ CANNOT testify that ‘Islamic Jew Hatred’ is false

Late yesterday, in Philadelphia, a federal judge ruled that an “expert” hired by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) may not testify that an “Islamic Jew-Hatred” advertisement submitted by the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) was false. The ruling is part of a lawsuit filed by the American Freedom Law Center against SEPTA for refusing to display the Islamic Jew-Hatred advertisement, which appears in full below:

05.20.14news-trull-hitler-bus-edit AFLC Press Release  The advertisement stated, in relevant part, “Islamic Jew-Hatred: It’s in the Quran” and referred to Haj Amin Al-Husseini as “the leader of the Muslim world.” 

The judge rejected SEPTA’s argument that it could ban the advertisement based on SEPTA’s claim of falsity, holding that the First Amendment does not permit government officials to be the “arbiter’s of truth” regarding matters of public concern. 

6a00d8341cb49853ef00e54f828f848834-640wi1

SEPTA intended to present the testimony of Dr. Jamal J. Elias, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania and “an eminent scholar of Islam and Muslim society” at a hearing on a motion for a preliminary injunction allegedly to establish the falsity of the advertisement.  Dr. Elias intended to offer two opinions, both of which pertain to alleged inaccuracies in the AFDI ad.  First, Dr. Elias intended to testify that referring to Haj Amin al-Husseini as the “leader of the Muslim word” is “manifestly false.”  And second, Dr. Elias intended to opine that the statement “the Quar’an teaches Jew-Hatred” is “unfair and erroneous.”

ZSvideoMEMRIEgyptianClerics1-vi In his ruling rejecting SEPTA’s claim of “falsity,” the judge reviewed relevant First Amendment precedent, observing that “speech concerning public issues has always rested on the highest rung of the hierarchy of First Amendment values. . . .  As such, if there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion.  Therefore, the protection afforded to political speech does not turn on the truth or popularity of the sentiments expressed.”

muslimantisemitism-vi The judge further noted that “[l]ong standing Supreme Court precedent instructs that political speech does not lose First Amendment protection simply because the listener believes that it is false or disagrees with the message it advances.  Allowing the state to restrict political speech based on an assessment that it is false or inaccurate, offends bedrock First Amendment principles.”

is-Jew-hatred The judge concluded, “In light of the precedent discussed above, I find that First Amendment principles apply to the advertisement at issue regardless of its alleged falsity.  Consequently, Dr. Elias’ conclusions regarding the advertisement’s veracity are not relevant and will be excluded from the preliminary injunction hearing.”

hiltler_avait_raison-vi Robert J. Muise, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, praised the ruling as a clear victory for the First Amendment and noted that “it would be perilous to permit government censors to be the arbiters of truth regarding politics, history, religion, or other similar matters of opinion.” 

memriCapture-vi David Yerushalmi, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, added, “We are encouraged by the judge’s ruling, which was loyal to the First Amendment and tracked our motion on every point.  It is important to have a judge who understands the importance of this constitutional guarantee, particularly when, as in this case, the freedom of speech is pitted against political correctness.”

AFLC expects that the court will hold a hearing on its motion for a preliminary injunction within the coming weeks.

“RUN and HIDE” – Britain’s plan for ‘protecting’ its citizens from the next Muslim terrorist attack

Run and Hide isn’t enough, it should be “Run and Hide, Then Kiss Your Ass Goodbye.”

Daily Mail  (h/t Susan) UK Police are taking to railway stations to tell passengers what to do in the event of a Mumbai-style terrorist attack at one of Britain’s busy terminals. After government warnings that the threat to Britain from Islamic terrorists is ‘greater than ever’, officers handed out leaflets telling the public to ‘run, hide and tell’ if they are caught up in a Muslim terror attack.

The flyer, which has been attacked as ‘scaremongering’ by critics, shows images of worried-looking people running down flights of stairs, cowering in the dark and anxiously talking on their mobile phones.

The campaign comes as a sweeping package of measures to tackle the threat from home-grown Muslim extremists and those returning from fighting with ISIS is set to go before Parliament. Launching the campaign, Chief Constable of British Transport Police (BTP) Paul Crowther said: ‘More than six million people travel on our railways every single day.

OH, LOOKIE! Canada has its own version of John Kerry

When Left Wing Senator Grant Mitchell, from Alberta, implies that Tarek Fatah, a Muslim, is an Islamophobe, Fatah rips him a new one.

Tarek Fatah appeared before the Standing Senate Committee on National Security and Defence (Canada) and confronted a jackass who claimed to know more about what goes on in mosques than Fatah does.

FOX News  Ortonville (KMSP) – According to the Minnesota Republican Party’s website, Jack Whitley remains the Big Stone County chairman despite widely decried anti-Muslim posts he recently published on his Facebook page.

But while the party hasn’t cut ties with him, his employer has. In a Facebook post of their own, the Ortonville Hardware Hank announced that Whitley has been fired.

“While we support every American’s right to free speech (obviously, you DON’T), we certainly cannot condone the inflammatory remarks against Muslims and others,” store owners Bob and Sue Kulbeik wrote. “[I]t is clear that this person has brought shame to us personally, to our business, our community, our county and the Republican Party… We will not tolerate this type of bigotry within our business family.” (Truth is not bigotry, unless you are a muslim apologist)

It is with regret and shock that we feel we must address the comments that one of our employees made last week. While we support every American’s right to free speech, we certainly cannot condone the inflammatory remarks against Muslims and others. This is NOT a view we share and we are saddened to know that this has become such a horrible reflection on Big Stone County, our community, and our business.

We have already felt the ramifications of this individuals actions and it’s been suggested both locally and statewide on the MPR website that our business should be boycotted as long as he works there. (Wait’ll you see how big the boycott is going to be because of this firing!)

Peace to all,

SYRIA: What’s the difference between a beheading by ISIS and a beheading by a ‘moderate’ Syrian rebel group?

The sharpness of the knives? Apparently, the beheader can’t quite get the head off by slitting the neck so he pulls out a meat cleaver to finish the job. 

Video allegedly shows a non-ISIS group beheading a man with a cast on his arm. It was carried out by either the al-Nusra Front or one of the so-called ‘moderate’ rebel groups that Barack Hussein Obama has been supporting and training.

“F*ck you, Zionist scums,” shout pro-Hamas students at Cornell University

On November 19, 2014, Cornell Students for Justice in Palestine organized a mock Israeli checkpoint at Ho Plaza, a central student gathering point on campus between the Cornell Bookstore and Willard Straight Hall, where many student activities are centered.

Cornell-SJP-Mock-Checkpoint-Ho-Plaza-11-19-2014-e1416598760469

Legal Insurrection  Casey Breznick, Editor in Chief of the Cornell Review and an author at Legal Insurrection, has the story at the Cornell Review Blog of a confrontation that took place when a group of pro-Israel students counter-protested holding Israeli flags and signs calling for peace.

Here is video we put together based on footage provided to us by multiple student sources, showing Yang-Stevens pulling the same ploy she pulled on me last April, claiming that the student had his camera in her face (which he denies both in the video and also in communications with me), as Yang-Stevens taunted the pro-Israel student to hit her while shouting out “Fuck you Zionist scums” and “oppression will be met with aggression.”

Kat Yang-Stevens (Anyone know what the crap coming out of her nose is?)

In addition to his Review report, Casey said:

At the rally, I witnessed  [Yang-Stevens, the fat dyke with the foul mouth] acting very aggressively towards pro-Israel students who were peaceably standing off to the side of the plaza waving posters or merely observing the pro-Palestinian displays. Yang-Stevens taunted and cursed at pro-Israel students, and tried provoking some into hitting her. When I asked her “Do you condemn Hamas?”, she responded “Do you want some of this?” To another student, she repeatedly asked if he wanted to slap her and taunted him for “foaming at the mouth.” She stood nearly nose-to-nose with this student, who eventually walked away to neutralize the situation.

Two UK MUSLIM taxi drivers found guilty of refusing to pick up a blind man with his guide dog

guide-dog_3114048b

Andrew Goddard, who was left in the pouring rain with his dog Sammy, says he hopes the prosecutions will ensure that “other people will not have to suffer.”

UK Telegraph (h/t Colin W) A blind man who was left standing in the pouring rain when two cab drivers refused to transport his guide dog has welcomed the decision to prosecute the pair so that “other people will not have to suffer.”  Andrew Goddard, who is registered blind, booked a cab to take him and guide dog Sammy to a social event in Bristol in December 2013.

He waited outside his home in Brislington, Bristol, in pouring rain with Sammy for the private hire driver to arrive. But when Khader Ahmed Sharif Abdi pulled up, he refused to allow the guide dog into his vehicle.  Mr Goddard was forced to call for another driver but, when Sheikh Omar Mohamed arrived, he also refused to let the pair in his car. A third driver eventually agreed to take Mr Goddard and Sammy, both now soaking wet, to the event at the Louisiana pub. 

Both Abdi and Mohamed were prosecuted by Bristol City Council for refusing to convey an assistance dog, contrary to the Equalities Act 2010.  Abdi admitted the offence at Bristol Magistrates’ Court and was handed a conditional discharge and ordered to pay a contribution to prosecution costs.  Mohamed was found guilty of the offence at the same court and fined almost £350.

Speaking after the case, Mr Goddard said he hoped it would prevent others from going through the same ordeal.  “I got Sammy in May last year, and he has given me the confidence to go out to social events on my own,” he said. 

“I don’t have any problem with my normal taxi firm, who are always happy to take my dog, and if it hadn’t have been raining, I would have probably got the bus.  “I am pleased that both drivers were prosecuted, and I hope that by highlighting this issue other people will not have to suffer.”

The prosecutions were brought by the council’s Licensing Enforcement Team. Gus Hoyt, assistant mayor for neighbourhoods at the council, called the actions of Abdi and Mohamed “simply not acceptable”. 

“Taxis and private hire vehicles form an integral part of the transport system in Bristol and are often relied upon by people suffering from visual impairment,” Mr Hoyt said. 

“It is simply not acceptable that drivers don’t comply with their legal obligations by refusing to carry assistance dogs. We are delighted that we have brought these successful convictions, and we hope it sends out a strong message that this is simply not acceptable.”

MINNESOTASTAN: Sharia-compliant amendment would change an existing Minneapolis ordinance in order to allow businesses to cater to the Muslim community during Ramadan

Minneapolis helps Muslim businesses follow sharia law. And Allah knows, ‘starving’ Somali Muslims there need to be able to get food more hours of the day.

Somali Muslims demand more funding for their free halal food bank

 Somali Muslim immigrants protest to demand that the city of Minneapolis increase the funding for their free halal food bank

MN Daily  The amendment, drafted by Ward 12 City Councilman Andrew Johnson, would allow businesses outside of downtown to apply to stay open later than 10 p.m. on weekdays and 11 p.m. on weekends, for Muslims during what they call the “holy month of Ramadan.”

Cedar-Riverside, a neighborhood filled with barbarically-slaughtered animals in halal markets and East African restaurants, would be particularly affected by the change, Johnson said. The amendment would also allow grocery stores in the area to stay open later.

“It’s harder for families to pick up a few things at a store during Ramadan,” said Ward 6 City Councilman Abdi Warsame. Muslim business owners in the neighborhood say they hope the City Council will approve the amendment on Dec. 5. “This will mean more business from Muslim people who want to come in later,” said Ali Jama, manager of West Bank Grocery, adding that “business is dead” some days during the month of Ramadan.

Hussein Ahmed owns a sharia money services consulting business on Cedar Avenue, a location surrounded by groceries and restaurants. He said if they stayed open later, it would draw more business to him indirectly. “As a business owner, them being open during Ramadan would be a huge benefit to us,” Ahmed said. Minneapolis helps Muslim businesses follow sharia law & The City That Offers Sharia-Compliant Loans to Somali Muslim Business Owners

The amendment only applies to businesses outside of downtown without a liquor license. The amendment allows businesses to apply to extend their hours 35 days a year. The temporary closing time would be decided on a case-by-case basis. Warsame said the 35 days should be enough to allow for Ramadan and a few extra occasions.

Kahin said the ordinance would help the whole Muslim community.

TEXAS: SAUDI MUSLIM detained at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio for crashing through gate with explosives reportedly found in his vehicle

An early Monday morning TODAY  show report says no explosives were found, but other reports say there were. I suppose we’ll never know for sure.

622x350

CBS  (h/t Reader) Officials at Fort Sam Houston say they’ve taken into custody the driver of a vehicle that military officials say contained explosive materials, and which sparked a lockdown at the San Antonio Army base. The Bexar County Sheriff’s Department said on Twitter that the lockdown was being handled by military police, and the sheriff’s department had no units assigned to the case.

Alex Delgado, spokesman for the 502nd Air Base Wing, says in a statement that the lockdown was lifted Sunday night after officials decided it was safe to return to normal operations. It wasn’t clear how long the person taken into custody would be held or if charges would be filed. Nobody else was in the vehicle.

Military officials told KCEN-TV that the man that drove through the gate at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio was a Saudi National and that explosive materials were found in the vehicle. The unidentified man was taken into custody and officials are still trying to determine his motive. Military officials are not yet calling this an attempted terrorist attack.

According to the city of San Antonio’s website, the base was established in 1910 — the ninth-oldest Army installation in the country. Fort Sam Houston now encompasses 3,000 acres and is home of military medicine and part of Joint Base San Antonio

AUSTRALIA: Mutilated pig dumped outside Perth mosque

A mutilated pig’s head and limbs have been thrown at the entrance of a Perth mosque in what the Islamic community has called a “despicable” and “disheartening act of hatred.”

3q18g3

The Australian  The pig’s remains where found outside the main entrance of the Masjid Ibrahim Islamic Mosque in Southern River this morning by a group of students and local community members. Imam Shabir, a spokesman for the mosque that was opened in June, said the “despicable act” would not deter members from building relationships with the wider community.

Mr Shabir said it was “disheartening” to see such an act just a few weeks after an open day which had received “tremendous support” from the local community. This latest incident follows three other attacks on mosques in Perth in the past month. Last week, white paint was splashed over the front entrance of the Ar-Rukun Mosque in Rockingham.

Earlier in the month, vandals painted ‘Aussie Pride’ and anti-Islamic slurs on a Sikh Temple in Bennett Springs, a north-eastern suburb of Perth, in the mistaken belief that it was an Islamic place of worship. An Islamic school has also been targeted.

ISIS celebrates resignation of Chuck Hagel, Defense Secretary

No doubt rejoicing at the prospect of the rumored replacement for Hagel as Secretary of Defense – a far left wing woman who will pose no threat at all to the advancement of the Islamic State (ISIS)! Not to mention advancing Barack Hussein Obama’s continuing degradation and decimation of the U.S. military.

CBS Among the leading contenders to replace Hagel is Michele Flournoy, who served as the Pentagon’s policy chief for the first three years of Obama’s first term. Flournoy, who would be the first woman to head the Pentagon, is now chief executive officer of the Center for a New American Security, a think tank that she co-founded.

JERUSALEM: Two Jewish men stabbed, but survive, in an apparent Arab Muslim terrorist attack

A Jewish man in his 40s is in moderate-to-serious condition after being stabbed in the upper torso, while another man sustained light wounds, police said, when both were attacked by a group of Arab Muslim assailants near the Old City’s Jaffa Gate. According to Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, police “strongly believe the stabbing was a terrorist attack.”

Right on schedule, the international community rushes to blame Israel

And right on schedule, the Jew-hating leftists rush in to blame Israel

JPost (h/t Mathijs B)  “The victims were surrounded by a group of Arab Muslim men, and one was stabbed and the other was lightly injured, although it is not clear if he was stabbed as well,” Rosenfeld said shortly following the attack.

Police arrested one of the suspects and continue to search for the others after they fled the scene, he said, adding that the stabbing victim managed to walk to a nearby police station where he received first aid before being rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center. “Police continue to search the Old City for the other suspects and hope to make arrests soon,” Rosenfeld said.

Meanwhile, police announced on Monday that an Arab resident of the Old City was arrested last week on suspicion of spreading violent propaganda on his Facebook page. In a statement, police said Mahmoud Asila, 32, was arrested on November 18 for posting photos and videos deemed as “incitement,” which called for running over security forces and for attempting to spur car attacks against Israelis in general.
