Victory for Truth and Free Speech Over Islamic Supremacism

A years-long battle is over, and Islamic supremacism has suffered a stunning and well-deserved defeat in its ongoing war against free speech and those who dare to tell the truth about Islam.  Omar Tarazi, a lawyer linked to the Hamas front group the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), has dismissed his frivolous, harassing $10 million libel lawsuit against me with prejudice, which means that it cannot be refiled.
 
This case was about much more than just Tarazi’s false charge that I libeled him.  His dismissal of the case is a huge victory for the First Amendment, truth and the anti-Sharia movement in this country, which is exposing an insidious cancer that brings progressives and Islamic supremacists together in the common cause of attacking anyone who criticizes Islamic supremacism with the threat of lawsuits, actual lawsuits, or even worse, violence.
 
Tarazi is a lawyer based in Columbus, Ohio.  He represented the parents of Rifqa Bary, the teenage girl who fled from her home in fear for her life in 2009 after converting from Islam to Christianity.  He sued me for $10 million after I criticized him in a series of blog posts at my website, AtlasShrugs.com, pointing out his ties to Hamas-linked CAIR and his efforts to harass and demoralize Rifqa by, among other initiatives, denying her the Christmas cards that I had encouraged my readers to send to her.
 
The larger implications of Tarazi’s lawsuit were clear from the outset.  His lawsuit was filed as part of the Islamic supremacist “lawfare” campaign against critics of Sharia, jihad, Islam’s death penalty for apostates, and honor killings, and I refused to capitulate.  And at the end of the day, Tarazi blinked and folded.
 
Tarazi claimed that I had libeled him by linking him to CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas front group that the Department of Justice named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror funding case.  But during discovery, my ace legal team, David Yerushalmi and Robert Muise, who works with the Thomas More Law Center, established that Tarazi did in fact have personal and professional links to CAIR, and that my statements therefore could not be defamatory, because they were true.
 
I had also reported information from other sources that were critical of Tarazi’s actions—including allegations that he had perjured himself in court filings in the Ohio juvenile proceedings on the Bary case.  Here again, however, my lawyers explained how Tarazi had indeed not been completely honest with the juvenile court, and that my statements were true.
 
Yerushalmi and Muise (who absorbed six-figure legal costs as they represented me pro bono, because of the important free-speech implications of the case) were steadfast when I held firm that no settlement would be reached in this attempt to enforce the blasphemy laws under Sharia and restrict free speech and truth.  They asked the court to dismiss Tarazi’s lawsuit entirely, and Tarazi, seeing that nothing was going his way, folded soon after.
 
The settlement required me to pay no money.  I agreed to remove five of the dozens of AtlasShrugs.com blog posts about Tarazi’s role in the Rifqa Bary case—but these were redundant anyway, and nothing prevents me from writing about Tarazi’s role in the case in the future.
 
It was an especially important victory, because Islamic supremacists are always trying to silence those who tell the truth about jihad, Islamic supremacism, Islamic anti-Semitism, Islam’s treatment of women, and more.  All of us know what the real objective of this litigation jihad was.  This lawsuit by Omar Tarazi was yet another attempt to impose Sharia on the free marketplace of ideas.  But I will not be silenced, nor will my colleagues.  The message is that we will not be silent.  This is America, land of free speech and home of the brave.  Get used to it.
 
We will continue to fight the implementation of Sharia blasphemy laws restricting free speech under the guise of the fictional construct of a “phobia.”
 
That’s why I wrote my new book, Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance to show Americans how to fight back.  And in the ongoing Islamic battle to destroy free speech, we’ve won an important victory this week.

    I say GOOD FOR YOU.

    BUT, this resembles the ’68 Tet Offensive in Vietnam: A battlefield victory, but a strategic defeat, because of the timidity of American leadership and the vapidity of the American polity.

    We’re losing the war against the new mohammedan onslaught, but our populace is too busy watching “Jersey Shore” and Monday Night Football to care, and our leaders are all either too co-opted or too stupid to care or to do anything about it.

    Still, I’m glad you won this fight. “NY Times v Sullivan” comes back to haunt the liberals. I love it. You go, Girl!

    Glad you won the victory. It’s never good to just roll over and be silenced, especially when one is telling the truth.

  • Altosackbuteer

    I didn’t mean to piggyback on you, TetVet, but my primary message box seems to be down.

    I have a simple question for Miss Geller.  While I’m only happy that you found lawyers willing to work pro bono (but where was the ACLU on this issue?), I’d sure like them to get paid if at all possible.

    So my question is, is it not possible for them to counter-sue to ask the court to order Tarazi to pay damages for filing a frivolous lawsuit?  I know the courts have it in their power to do this.

  • OriginalReggy

    Great idea….Would make them pay each time they took a shot at suing us for telling the truth.

    Good for you Pam and congratulations to your legal team….thanks for keeping the line.

                                                        EXCERPT
     
                        HITLER/NAZISM AND COMMUNISM WERE THE LIFE AND DEATH DEFINING ISSUES OF THE GREATEST GENERATION.  ISLAM IS THE LIFE AND DEATH DEFINING ISSUE FOR THE SECOND GREATEST GENERATION AND THEIR CHILDREN. 
     
                    Islam is a life and death issue for Western women.  All human rights and freedoms women have won in the Western World are now endanger from Islam.  It is shocking that feminists are not rising up against Islam but are instead going meekly to their eternal fate as the chattel of their husband/father.  As already shown, kafir women are being raped enmass in Europe and probably the US as Rape Jihad grips the European continent.  
     
                   To prevent the enslavement of women, Sharia Law must be banned.  All ANTI WOMAN teachings of the Quran and Hadith condemned and rejected as well as a total rejection of Islam.  The rights of women must be enforced and protected through the Rule of Law and a Constitutional Amendment: Universal Declaration Of The Total Equality of Women.  This Constitutional Amendment to be submitted to all states and 100% would be expected to ratify this amendment.  In this Proclamation, each ANTIWOMAN teaching of the Quran and Sharia Law are condemned and made legal.  By doing this and making these rights denied by Islam – Constitutional we are reinforcing our rejection of Sharia Law and the Quran making it impossible for Muslims to undermine the democratic rights of women.  Again, this Amendment to be taught to every student in every school, every year.      
     
                    This Constitutional Amendment would be in addition to the already existing Constitutional rights enjoyed by women otherwise this will be your daily reality.  [Bukhari 3, 38,508] Mohammed said, “Unais, confront this man’s wife and if she admits committing adultery have her stoned to death.” [Bukhari 8, 82,803] Ali had a woman stoned to death on a Friday and said, “I have punished her as Mohammed would have.”
     
              Women are the key to defeating Islam.  All Islamic nations must enact the following Constitutional Amendment granting their women total humanity and equality.  Again, those nations that refuse will not be granted visas to travel to New York leaving their UN seats EMPTY.
     
              We (who oppose Islam) must become the champion of the worldwide total and complete equality of ALL women. We must become the champion of defending Muslim women and children. We are not in conflict with Muslim women. They are the property of their men and enslaved by Islam. We must fight for their equal human rights and dignity. 
     
    THIS WILL BE A MOMENT OF TRUE HISTORCAL GREATNESS.

    GREAT NEWS!

  • RepublicansHateTheTruth

    I am deeply saddened, as I am sure many of you are, by the appearance of this article on Human Events. Mrs. Pamela Geller is Jewish and a self-proclaimed “proud Zionist.” Clearly the editors of Human Events have ignored the requests of Christian, Muslim, Conservative, and Liberal readers who have asked that Mrs. Geller be dropped as a columnist.  

    Republicans Hate The Truth.

  • StanW

    It is clear that the only person here that truly hates the truth is YOU.

    I for one enjoy readin Ms. Gellers columns and even visit her website from time to time.

    Stop pretending you speak for anyone but yourself.

  • RepublicansHateTheTruth

    Mr. StanW,

    I have respectfully asked you to stop responding to my posts. If you ignore that request, I will regretfully be forced to report you to the Human Events editors.

    Respectfully,

    Boo-Hoo-fricking-HOO.

    Mr. Hate, I will respond to anyone I please. You have equal freedom to ignore my post (which you said you would do, but did not!)

    News Flash for You. You DO NOT get to decide who I can talk to and who I cannot. So you will just have to live with my posts, m’K Pumpkin!

    Pamela Geller is just a mouthpiece for massacre and the theft of land. Zionists like her have fewer and fewer friends. She is a supporter of 63 years of oppression against the Palestinian people. She also tells lies, exaggerates and demonizes people who won’t bend over for the red neck philosophy of  the “exceptional idiots”. Never mind, because the victory of the Taliban and the Palestinian people will be greater than hers.

    You’re just as much of a joke as your buddy RepHateTheTruth, you two can compete for the title “Spokesman for Hamas”.  So far we have not seen an iota of sense coming from either gaping ignoramus.

  • Concerned4America

    Give us names of those who have asked that she be dropped. Cite specifics where she has spouted Zionist poison. I don’t remember her making any comments that were unacceptable.

  • Concerned4America

    Yes there are people like Obama, Pelosi and RHTT who think they have the right to say anything they please and no contrary views need to be expressed.

  • scaromousch

    Ha Ha Ha Ha Haaaaaaaaa!  Loser.  We should soon be able to stop any mosque from being built in our country because of the inflamatory “teachings” of death to others who don’t tow your line of filthy, ungodly living in their “religion of peace” settings.  All you really have is a political system designed to control the world and stuff your fake “morality” down everyones’s throat. 
    “Massacre and theft of the land.”  What utter nonsence.  I’m her friend, I believe in personal freedom to worship any way you or I like, and so do an overwhelming amount of USA citizens.  We are awake now, and you will lose.  You’re just another “Bagdad Bob” in my eyes, a liar with bad intent.  Go ahead, you can crawl back under your rock now.  Free speech does not mean shouting “Fire” in a crowded theater.  It does not mean shouting “Kill the Christians, Jews, and those who leave our ‘peaceful’ religeon as well.  It’s not free speech to incite others to murder.

    Oooops, you slipped, Tam. You said, “Never mind, because the victory of the Taliban and the Palestinian people will be greater than hers.”

    An open admission that you support and admire the Taliban. Big surprise, right? Who would ever have suspected….

    You can tell your fellow Muslims that the devil’s time is near, so for a little while they can rejoice. Seven years you get, but then the Messiah will return and put an end to all evil.

    Eternity is a long time, Tam. You should repent and ask to be saved by the only One Who is able to save you – the One Who died for your sins. His name is Jesus. He said that there is no sin that would not be forgiven, except the sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. But after you’re dead, or after His return to rule the earth, it’s too late. Don’t wait and risk losing your soul, Tam. You’ve only got one.

  • gregio

    An excellent manifesto, the principles enumerated here would have a dramatic effect not only in the third world be in the developed world as well and would serve  to improve the lives of women and as a result the lives of children.  This is a true challenge, will the developed world have the courage to incorporate this language in their law?   Do they have the courage to declare commitment to female rights?  Will women forever show more courage for championing human rights or will men finally step up???

  • TanongSak

    Woman, shut up. Just stay home and bake cookies, and don’t meddle in things that don’t concern you.

    The only mistake anyone here can make is to treat her as though she actually has a right to an opinion. It’s already bad enough that she’s allowed to vote.

    What’s wrong with being a “Jewish and proud Zionist”?, which, by the way, I have never read in Ms. Geller’s books and articles, nor I heard it on her interviews. What I clearly understand, Ms. Geller is a proud AMERICAN. God Bless this fearless woman for what she does to make sure this country stays free for our children, despite all efforts of people like you and your president.

  • George B from Maine

    Pamela, besides being smart, intelligent and brave, you are a very attractive lady!

    Guys, why  is it that a conservative lady is cute, even if she is Jewish (sorry, no offence for “even Jewish”, Jewish ladies is just not my type). But Pamela IS a cutie isn’t she?
    Now, compare her to Jewish libs, California Boxer, or that a$$hole from the “View”, what is her name, Joyce Behar? Any ideas?
