Counterjihad in Tulsa: Jamal Miftah’s lawsuit moves forward

Michael Bates posts excellent news from T-Town: Jamal Miftah’s lawsuit against the Tulsa Islamic Center has survived a motion to dismiss, and is proceeding.

If you’re not familiar with the Miftah matter, you ought to be. This is a matter of radical Islam attempting to shut up its critics and even inviting violence against them. Here’s a Vent by Erick Stakelbeck that lays out the case.

Basically, Miftah wrote an op-ed in the Tulsa World (you can read it here) about how Islam should condemn Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, and his mosque kicked him out–and assaulted him, and branded him an apostate “traitor to Islam”, effectively inviting jihadi violence against him.

And that’s not a stretch, either. Here are two comments that appeared on a post about Miftah at Junkyard Blog, both from Islamabad IP addresses:

This message is for the leader of the mosque in Tulsa. criticizing Ayman al-Zawahiri is not easy to live with, kick jamal out of USA as soon as posible. Mr. Jamal This is our promise to you,that you will be kicked out of USA very soon as we have kicked you out from the mosque. Jamal you will not be spared at any stage. we will suport every man who is trying to kick you out from usa. Dear Amam of the mosque get him as quick as possible.

To the leaders of the mosque give serious attention to this message. Ayman al-Zawahri and other al-Qaeda leaders are mujaheden and talking against them makes jamal the enemy of islam and killing this enemy is as Jahad as its is in Islam, get him we will pay you the price.

Miftah is one of a tiny minority of actual moderate muslims who have the courage to stand up against radical Islam. For Mr. Miftah, Islam actually does mean peace. In fact, Jamal Miftah is a far better ambassador for his faith than the entire collection of professional whiners at CAIR.

I hope he and his family apply for asylum and stay in America–and consider joining us as citizens. I also wish him well with his lawsuit–see, I have this theory that the discovery process of civil lawsuits against groups like CAIR and Saudi-supported mosques will turn up all kinds of interesting information that bloggers and investigative journalists will enjoy sifting through.

It’s like lawfare in reverse.

There are court documents and a link to more background on the case at the Batesline link up top.
