Muslims Vs Free Speech

Thank you Frank for the latest news on the latest attacks by Muslims on Free Speech!

Dear Friends of Freedom of Speech,

I have an urgent update for you on the radical Islamic groups who are waging a fight to silence a good friend of the Freedom Center, Joe Kaufman.

Briefly, seven Muslim groups claim that Joe is a threat. They convinced a court that Joe "intends to threaten to take unlawful action... cause bodily injury... or threaten Plaintiffs or their members with immediate bodily injury." On those grounds the court imposed a restraining order on him. In addition, the groups are suing Joe for defamation to stop him from writing about Muslims in the future and to close down his web sites.

Joe's never threatened anyone in his life. He's written well-detailed reports, however, about the growing threat radical Muslims represent and he's identified individuals and organizations in the United States that are supporting our enemies.

The seven Muslim groups who've united to attack Joe and strip him of his rights are well financed and savvy to our court system. There has been a flurry of legal activity as these radicals continue to fuel the fire with senseless demands and accusations - and money. They have deep pockets. They truly believe they can silence Joe by financially breaking him and the Freedom Center's legal team

You see, the Freedom Center's legal team - the Individual Rights Foundation - is handling Joe's defense. But we need your help. Legal fees are mounting. And we're turning to you.

If Joe Kaufman loses, radical Muslims will know they can stop anyone from investigating and writing about any Muslim groups and individuals. This is why I am urgently asking you to make an emergency contribution to help the Freedom Center pay for Joe's defense.

You see, this case is nearly two years old. Yet, the court refuses to toss out the lawsuit, so the case continues. Joe is being represented by a team of lawyers who are generously donating their time. But the other legal costs are considerable.

To date, the Freedom Center has paid more than $30,000 in legal fees. Another $25,000 needs to be paid - and the case has just had another round of oral arguments to add to the legal costs. I'm working hard to raise $45,000 as soon as possible. I can't let this case end with the radical Muslims winning. You see, Joe's not the only one on trial here. The Freedom Center's efforts, the work at Jihad Watch, and the work by many others who are exposing a threat the mainstream media won't touch in jeopardy, as well.

Like Joe, many of the journalists, web publications, and internet watchdogs are doing this out of their passion for freedom and their desire to help protect America from the Islamo-Fascist threat. The case these seven radical Muslim groups have brought against Joe Kaufman is simply the first step in silencing every one of us!

The lawsuit against Joe Kaufman is part of a strategy by these Muslim groups to bully us into silence. That's why we cannot let them win.

I am asking you to make a contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more,< /A> to help us raise the $45,000 we need right away to pay for Joe Kaufman's defense. Any amount you can give will help. Please follow this link immediately to give. It's extremely urgent!

Thanks in advance for your support.

P.S. We must continue to fight for Joe Kaufman. Radical Muslims have already shown they can bully their enemies in courtrooms in Canada and Europe! We cannot let it happen here! We must raise the money needed to win this case. Please follow this link to chip in whatever you can to help us reach our goal of $45,000.
