WASHINGTON – When the Council on American-Islamic Relations sued a WND author over the daring undercover investigation that led to the publication of “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America,” it never expected the case to backfire.
But that’s exactly what happened when WND hired a team of the nation’s top First Amendment lawyers.
CAIR not only is failing in its bid to use the legal system to subvert the U.S. Constitution, it also is getting burned in the process. Thanks to contributions to the WND Legal Defense Fund, the attorneys exposed the astonishing fact that CAIR doesn’t even legally exist and was therefore unqualified to file the lawsuit in the first place.
But this case has cost us dearly. And it’s not over yet. CAIR is
desperately trying to keep it alive. A federal judge in
Washington now is considering a motion by CAIR to amend its original, unsuccessful complaint.
Your generous donation to the WND Legal Defense Fund is needed now more than ever, and to underscore the importance of your help, WND is making a special offer.
The best-seller, which reads at times like a heart-stopping thriller, exposes the D.C.-based organization with unprecedented documentation as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood’s aim to turn the U.S. in to a Saudi-style Islamic nation under Shariah.
Reading “Muslim Mafia” will make you wonder why the media, including Fox and CNN, continues to call on CAIR officials for regular TV appearances. Why it ignores the fact that more than a dozen members, officials and board members of CAIR have been indicted or convicted of terrorism-related charges. Or that CAIR has been named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-financing case in U.S. history.
CAIR, financed from Saudi Arabia and other Middle East sources, has virtually unlimited foreign money to back its litigious brand of courtroom terrorism. WND does not.
That’s why, even after big courtroom victories, the WND Legal Defense Fund needs your support.
And there will be other cases, too.
“Real, old-fashioned investigative journalism like WND does, and only WND does, tends to attract lawsuits,” said Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer. “WND has faced its share over the years and expects to continue to face more in the future. It’s hard to fund the investigations and defend them in the courtroom against adversaries with deep pockets.”
