Dismissal of CAIR's suit against Andrew Whitehead

Reader comment on item: CAIR Backs Down from Anti-CAIR

Submitted by Maurice Picow (Israel), Apr 22, 2006 at 06:22

The dismissal of the CAIR organization's anti-defamation suit against Anti-CAIR organization head Andrew Whitehead clearly indicates that there are still many courageous souls, in America and elsewhere, who are willing to stand up against the intense public relations campaign conducted by Islamic interest organizations which are heavily funded by countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, as well as possibly organizations such as Al Qaeda and the Islamic Brotherhood (in countries such as Egypt).

While the American Constitution advocates freedom of speech, assembly, and expression, there must be legal limitations on these rights, especially if they are in favor of particular social or religious doctrunes that are contrary to those of the majority of citizens inhabiting the land; in this case the U.S.A.

I have written many articles and letters on the subject of Islam, and also an academic study, entitled The World for Allah which deals with Islam's striving to become the dominant world religious movement by the end of the 21st Century. Judging from Islam's progress in many parts of the world, especially in Western Europe, the religion is gaining more converts than other religions, including all Christian religious sects, most notably Catholocism.

Indeed, while European Christian sects are now witnessing a marked decrease in church going members, Muslims regularly attending mosques are increasing as never before. And while there are many moderate Muslims in the world, the tenenants of their religion are those which require strict submission and adherance to Islamic teachings and Sharia laws.

Hopefully, this important victory for both Mr. Whitehead and for many others, will engourage people to voice their opinions as well. If Islam is really a religion of 'moderation', then let this be proven so.

So far, it hasn't .
