CAIR Backs Down from Anti-CAIR by Daniel Pipes
FrontPageMagazine.com ^ | April 21, 2006 | Daniel Pipes

Posted on 04/21/2006 5:05:06 AM PDT by Nicholas Conradin

In a stunning setback, the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ defamation suit against Andrew Whitehead of Anti-CAIR has been dismissed with prejudice.

The Anti-CAIR website, www.anti-cair-net.org, reports a “mutually agreeable settlement,” the terms of which are confidential. However, Whitehead notes that he issued no public apology to CAIR, made no retractions or corrections, and left the Anti-CAIR website unchanged, so that it continues to post the statements that triggered CAIR’s suit. Specifically, CAIR had complained about Whitehead calling it a “terrorist supporting front organization … founded by Hamas supporters” that aims “to make radical Islam the dominant religion in the United States.” It also objected to being described as “dedicated to the overthrow of the United States Constitution and the installation of an Islamic theocracy in America.”

That clears the decks; no additional actions are pending between these two parties. In brief, Whitehead won a sweet victory, while CAIR suffered a humiliating defeat.

Hey CAIR, now that you've lost the lawsuit, you will find it increasingly difficult to hide the fact that you are a bunch of radical terrorist supporting islamic theocracy nuts who whis to overthrow this great Republic and take away the rights of half the population. I hope your goats don't suffer to much as you take your 'frustration' on them.

It will be interesting the see whether the MSM continues to promote CAIR as a legitimate voice for American Muslims.

I find it a bit strange that Whitehead was represtented by Greenberg Traurig LLP’s Washington, D.C.

Have a look at this:

Four former Greenberg Traurig lobbyists besides disgraced former colleague Jack Abramoff took improper side payments in violation of company policy and have been referred to the Justice Department, a top law firm executive has disclosed.

The four other lobbyists now being questioned are Kevin Ring, John Van Horne, Michael Smith and Stephanie Leger.

Ring is now a lobbyist for Barnes & Thornburg in Washington and still represents Indian tribes. Van Horne started a two-person Washington firm called GHT Law. Smith is a lobbyist for Cornerstone Government Affairs in Washington, and Leger now works as the Washington-based director of federal relations for Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco on hurricane recovery issues."

So instead of going to jail, they just change names or companies?

Guy didn't say CAIR was a bunch of terrorists though.

He was much more diplomatic, and careful.

The problem is simply that if Islam's scriptures are to be believed any Islamic group has some pretty fundamental problems along the lines described by the Anti-Cair site.

I suppose CAIR could have given up being Islamic to distance itself from the Koran, but what would be the point.

The more people that come to realize CAIR's main objective is indeed the islamification of America and he imposition of islam upon every American, the better.

In this respect, ANTI-CAIR is doing a valuable service, and I'm pleased that the suit was dismissed.

Like your typical cockroach, CAIR thrives on people's ignorance and preferres to do their dirty work in the dark. They don't like it when the bright light of truth shines down upon them.

Hey Troll,

Thanks for confirming what we already knew: that this ruling really hurt you and your pals at CAIR.

Have a nice day!

Dare I suggest that the tide is turning?: PETA got smacked down in their suit against Ringling Brothers, the commie (tenured?) professor that destroyed that display of crosses (Washington state?) is forced to resign, and now CAIR runs out of court with its tail between its legs, wordlessly acknowledging that the anti-CAIR statements are factually correct.

It will take patience and a concerted effort to undo 1400 years of Muslim aggression. They must be defeated country by country, town by town, mile by mile, foot by foot,inch by inch. Until there are no more.
We must declare islam as not being a religion, remove all tax exempt status of mosques with in our country. Declare them delinquent on all taxes retroactive to the day they were built. Any gathering of muslims should be treated as conspiracy to commit mass murder and they should be deported after the guilty finding.
It will be a long and tedious project but well worth the effort.

Better yet, give the Islamist the choice to renounce his/her religion of hate and violence, or perish on the spot.

After all, that is their modus operandi, as well.

Pipes Ping!

This is a real big win for Anti-CAIR and America in general. The Islamists at CAIR will be forced to think twice before attacking Americans through litigation who exercise their freedom of speech and right to intellectual freedom in challenging Islam and its horribly white-washed and biased presentation in the cultural arena.

This is a wonderful thing! I'll have to make it a point to write AJ Whitehead at Anti-CAIR.

Yeah, I saw that. I guess when push comes to shove it comes down to how much you are willing to sacrifice materially before you submit to dhimmitude.

Hopefully I have the same caliber as Whitehead if I ever find myself in just such a scenario.
