President Obama continues to argue that Islam is not a threat to America, but time and time again we are seeing instances of Muslims attempting to introduce Shariah Law to America.
Fortunately, there are some courts that aren’t afraid to stand behind American values and traditional.
In a recent case in Pennsylvania, a group of Muslims from Philadelphia attempted to shut down a political add “that spotlights Islamic Jew-hated and urges the United States to cut off foreign aid to Muslim countries.”
The ad was created by the American Freedom Defense Initiative’s co-found Pamela Geller. The ad was designed to bring awareness to the true nature of Islam to all of Philadelphia. Geller was reportedly inspired to make the ad after the city publicly honored Laila Ghannam, who is known for being a terrorist sympathizer.
Geller’s controversial ad featured Adolf Hitler meeting with Palestinian leader Hajj Amin al-Husseini.
The ad received immediate backlash, with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority filing a lawsuit on behalf of Muslims, claiming that it violates “civility standards.” They also argued that the ad “puts every single Muslim in the same category of being a Jew hater.”
The lawsuit was quickly dismissed by U.S. District Judge Mitchell S. Goldberg, who described the SETA’s attempts as “a principled attempt to limit hurtful, disparaging advertisements.”
What do you think of the lawsuit? Do you agree with the Judge’s decision?
