Continuing coverage of our SION International Freedom of Speech Congress, September 11th. Here is the video of the leading First Amendment lawyer, David Yerushalmi of the American Freedom Law Center. David Yerushalmi, along with his legal partner, Robert Muise, has represented me and triumphed in numerous lawsuits in defense of freedom of speech against governments in New York and Dearborn.
While we were conducting our hugely successful International Freedom
Congress on free speech, our embassies were being viciously attacked in
the jihadists' war on ….. free speech and freedom of conscience. The
bloody irony is not lost on us. The Obama administration's apology for "religious incitement" and "hurting the feelings of Muslims" crystallizes the battle set before us.
Reports continue to file in on our SION Freedom Congress. JanSuzanne, journalist for Before It's News, files this; go read it all:
"First Freedom Congress Gathers in NYC" Before It's News
A conference named International Freedom Defense Congress,
sponsored by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer’s organization ‘Stop
Islamization of Nations’ (SION), wasappropriately scheduled in NYC for
the 11thAnniversary of 9/11, but coincidentally took place
while Islamic savages in Egypt were storming the US Embassy and Libyan
murderers were killing American diplomats over the very issue they were
gathered to discuss: freedom of speech.
SION believes “that the workshop is of particular importance as it is
the first ever to address the implications of Resolution 16/18 of the
United Nations Human Rights Council, the stated goal of which is to
“combat intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization of,
discrimination, incitement to violence, and violence against persons
based on religion or belief,” but which is actually designed to restrict
truthful speech about Islamic supremacism and jihad, so as to render
the West mute and defenseless before the advancing threat of jihad and
In light of the repeated demonstrations of vicious hatred directed at
Americans over criticism of Islam and the Prophet Mohammed, this time in
an internet film, combined with the US State Department’s initial
appeasing response to these riots, it is quite fitting for Americans to
be addressing the pressing issue of how individual freedoms and rights
in a democratic society are being suppressed. This
conferencesuccessfully brought together about 200 global “soldiers” who
are battling the Islamic jihad movement against freedom that is widening
its powerful grip across Europe, Australia, India, and the US…not to
mention the Middle East.
Guest speakers from around the world came to share their first-hand
experiences in confronting and combating attacks on their freedom of
speech by the intolerance of Islamic propagandists and their
organizations. Ms. Geller passionately spoke to the audience about the
‘war to control words’ going on in the name of Islam…and the Muslims are
winning in a stealth jihad that is seducing many in the political arena
and media. All she had to do was point out the many security guards
surrounding the room and entrance area …along with the high cost of
paying for this necessary protection.
The 4.5 hour program was divided into four topics, the first three
being: The war in the U.S., The war in Australia and England, and The
global battle against Jihad. The fourth, ‘Europe – Front Line of the
Battle of Free Speech,’ was covered by three very hi-profile individuals
whose lives are under constant assault and each must travel with
security: Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, Danish publisher and free
speech advocate Lars Hedegaard and Anders Gravers of ‘Stop Islamization
of Europe (SIOE).
The first group of speakers included Nelly Braginsky, who lost her son
in 9/11, NYS Senator David Storobin(R), Cliff Kincaid, President of
Accuracy in Media, David Yerushalmi of the American Law for American
Courts (the lawyer who has been representing the organization), along
with Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer. Each clearly made the case that
‘freedom fighters’ in the US are now battling the first phase of an
Islamic Caliphate – the condemnation and banning of any criticism of
Islam and the introduction of Sharia Law into the American justice
The war for freedom of speech in Australia and the UK was discussed by
Debbie Robinson, President of Q Society in Australia, Tommy Robinson and
Kevin Carroll of the English Defense League (EDL), and George Igler of
the Discourse Institute in the UK. It was astonishing to listen to both
Robinson and Carroll share how their small town in England is one of
many communities where Muslims have been moving in over the last 20
years and have grown so large in numbers and influence that both the
police and the Brits are intimidated and many have left.
They made the argument that Americans should not fall for the idea that
this can’t possibly happen in the U.S. with a Constitution that
guarantees freedom of speech and religion. This is what the British
people also thought, Britain being the home of the Magna Carta. How
wrong they were.
Mr. Carroll dramatically held up some British newspapers with headlines
that are testimony to the degree of Muslim influence the British are
living under today and the loss of their individual freedoms. These
brave gents refuse to leave their homes in spite of the fact that their
country is now in the second stage of Islamic transformation.
Voice of Coptic Christians,’ Ashraf Rameleh who spoke of the suffering
and killing of Coptic Christians living under Islamic rule…being killed
because of their religion. The third speaker was the Israeli author and
Bar Ilan University lecturer, Dr. Mordechai Kedar who told how his being
a Jew and meeting with the Turkish Islamic scholar Adnan Oktar has led
to Muslims campaigning and discrediting Mr. Oktar as a Muslim because he
meets with Jews.
But the three elephants in the room, Vilks, Hedegaard and Gravers are
surely on the front line of the battle of free speech. Their experiences
in combating personal attacks on their character, not to mention their
lives, for expressing negative opinions of Islam and Mohammed brought
home the real danger that soldiers fighting Islamic dominance will face
as they struggle to stop the Islamization of their country and a global
It was quite apparent from the conference that Western countries have
proven to be fertile grounds for Islamic advancement and their citizens
are targets to be silenced.
