Syracuse, NY -- A national Muslim organization headquartered in the Southern Tier has filed a libel lawsuit against the author of a book that describes the group as the host of terrorist training camps.

Muslims of America, based in Hancock, Delaware County, sued Martin Mawyer and his Christian Action Network for $3 million in federal court in Syracuse, seeking to halt the continued publication of his book, “Twilight in America: the Untold Story of Islamic Training Camps in America.”

The book takes aim at Muslims of America with false claims that have put the group's members in fear of violent attacks from Mawyer’s followers, the lawsuit said. The co-author of the book, Patti Pierucci, is also named as a defendant.

The Christian Action Network isn't the only organization that has been critical of Muslims of America. The Anti-Defamation League has called the group "a virulently anti-Semitic, Islamic extremist group with ties to Al-Fuqra, a terrorist organization that has carried out firebombings and murders in the United States."

Muslims of America owns 60 acres in Hancock that the group bought "for the purpose of providing safe houses for American Muslims to raise families while establishing a peaceful community free from harmful elements such as those occurring in the inner cities in the 1980s," the lawsuit said....

In addition to trying to stop the continued publication of Mawyer's book, Muslims of America wants a judge to issue a gag him on him and his organization, and to order him to retract his previous statements....

Funny how people can write book after book criticizing Christian groups and no one thinks a lawsuit is warranted (Posted as part of a "Discussion of ....religion, arts, humanity... and other cultural and societal issues.")

The Muzzies need to go home where they won’t be “offended” all of the time.

You can sue for libel, but in America you can publish whatever you like. At least that’s the way it has been.

It’s strange there’s no mention of slander in the lawsuit.

“”in fear of violent attacks from Mawyer’s followers, the lawsuit said””

YEAH - there have been so many violent attacks against Muslims in this country. Let me count the ways!!!

Hope a judge has sense enough to say “get lost.”

I don’t know what possible negative terms you could NOT use when describing muslimes as they would all be true.

No word in the English language could adequately describe the depths of evil from which that death cult spews forth. Their filth defies description.

It this is the camp I think it is, I think the judge ought to order a surprise inspection of the camp to check it out. I think this is the place that has many reports of firearms noises that many claim to be full auto.

Does the "Muslims of America" thinks they're in a Sharia Nation - where the evidence of infidels is inadmissible in court?

Here is the evidence of the Hancock Muslim "terrorist training camp" in action:

The terms “American Muslim” and “Muslim American” are philosophically incompatible with themselves.

One can be a “Muslim”, or an American. Not both.

Exactly! Muslim beliefs are contrary to our constitution. They should not be allowed in our country. They need to stay in their muslim countries and follow sharia 100%.

“Total abnegation” probably comes close to describing the effect of Islam as a whole, and the Jihadist philosophy in particular, on civilizaton both Western and Eastern.

Despite its reputation as the custodian of learning and scholarly pursuit during the period known as the “Dark Ages” of medieval Europe, Islam really did little or nothing to preserve learning in their “universities”. Those institutions were first and foremost repositories for the study and implementation of Islam, not science and mathematics. Such knowledge as was preserved, must be mostly attributed to the Persians and the Hindu of India, and that largely through the Zoroastrians, hounded and driven out of Persia in the 8th Century. Persia itself was put under subjugation by the Islamic hordes that swept out of Arabia, and much of their civilization was co-opted or even submerged by the bands of barbarians that overran their land, converting many by threat of death.

Everywhere they went, Mohammed Ali’s horde sowed death and destruction, with a fanaticism unmatched until the time of the Spanish Inquisition, a countervailing force and philosophy that eventually drove Islam from the mainland of Spain.

And with the departure of Islam, the Dark Ages finally lifted from all of Europe.

Coincidence? I think not, even though there were multiple other reasons for the rather rapid revolution that was the Renaissance.

How to explain the sounds of extended, sporadic gunfire he said, scratching his head. Peace loving folks don’t engage in assault tactics. This area is totally rural. sd
