"Govern yourself accordingly".

This was the parting advice delivered to Andrew Whitehead of Virginia Beach, VA at the end of a rather ominous and threatening letter from an attorney hired by the Council on American-lslamic Relations Inc (CAIR).

On September 10th, 2003, The Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Terrorism, Technology and Homeland Security held the second in a series of hearings aimed at examining Saudi Arabia’s role in exporting Islamic extremism abroad. Senators turned out in force to connect the dots between CAIR and the deviant Islamic extremism that led to the vicious attacks of 9/11.  In his opening statement, Chairman Jon Kyl said :
“ ... a small group of organizations based in the U.S. with Saudi backing and support, is well advanced in its four-decade effort to control Islam in America -- from mosques, universities and community centers to our prisons and even within our military. Moderate Muslims who love America and want to be part of our great country are being forced out of those institutions.” 

" ... Saudi financing of Islamic extremism plays such a huge role in its emergence as a global phenomenon that a proper understanding of it is impossible without coming to terms with its dimensions. Simply put, without the exorbitant sums of Saudi money spent on supporting extremist networks and activities, the terrorist threat we are facing today would be nowhere as acute as it is".

Andrew Whitehead has decided to govern himself accordingly.  He's decided stand for the truth and against the lies and distortions foisted by CAIR, their hired legal guns, and their Saudi paymasters on Americans and Muslims around the world.

Dear Mr. Whitehead:

          I represent the Council on American-lslamic Relations Inc (CAIR).   I have reviewed a large number of your "ACAIR" web postings and have advised CAIR that they are defamatory, Several of many examples follow:

CAIR is a fundamentalist organization dedicated to the overthrow of the United States Constitution and the installation of an islamic theocracy in America. 
ACAIR, April 16, 2003 Press Release.

 (CAIR is an) .. . organization founded by Hamas supporters which seeks to overthrow constitutional government in the United States and replace it with an Islamist theocracy using our own Constitution as protection.... ACAIR July 4, 2003 Press Release.

Let their be no doubt that CAIR is a terrorist supporting front organization that is partially funded by terrorists, and that CAIR wishes nothing more than the implementation of a SHARIA law in American. ACAIR, August 13, 2003, Press Release.

ACAIR reminds our readers that CAIR was started by Hamas members and is supported by terrorists supporting individuals groups and countries. ACAIR June 14 2003 Press Release.

Why oppose CAIR? CAIR has proven links to and was founded by  Islamic terrorists.  CAIR is not in the United States to promote the civil rights of  Muslims. CAIR is here to make radical Islam the dominant religion in the United States and to convert our country into an Islamic theocracy along the lines of Iran. In addition CAIR has managed. through the adroit manipulation of the popular media to present itself as the "moderate" face of Islam in the United States. CAIR succeeded to the point that the majority of its members are not aware that CAIR actively supports terrorists and terrorist supporting groups and nations. In addition, CAIR receives direct funding from Islamic terrorist supporting countries. ACAIR May 29, 2003 Press Release.

CAIR has proven leaks to and was FOUNDED by, Islamic terrorists.
ACAIR, May 29, 2003, Press Release.

     The ACAIR web site has repeatedly insinuated that CAIR, the leading mainstream Islamic organization in the country, provides support to terrorist organizations. As you are no doubt aware providing material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization or even attempting to do so is a felony under Title 18   Section 2339B(a)(1) of the United States Code.

     While you certainly have a right to express your opinions, as sociopathic and xenophobic as they may be, you do not have the right to make false statements of fact injurious to another's reputation. The writings on your web site go far, far beyond the mere expression of opinion. They are false statements of fact imputing criminal acts made with reckless disregard for the truth.

     Notwithstanding that no law enforcement agency in the United States has seen fit to charge CAIR with any offense of any kind you have persisted in accusing CAIR of treasonous felonies. As you presumably also know falsely imputing the commission of a criminal offense involving moral turpitude for which one could be indicted and punished is libelous per se. Statements which are libelous per se can result in the imposition of not only compensatory damages, but also punitive damages, which it might interest you to know cannot be discharged in bankruptcy.

     Accordingly, l have advised CAIR to file a defamation suit against you, and any person who has facilitated in any way your publication of these statements.

      Notwithstanding my recommendation, in lieu of a lawsuit CAIR has asked me to give you the opportunity to voluntarily cease and desist the publication of defamatory statements about CAIR on your web site and elsewhere. If you persist in the publication of defamatory remarks about CAIR or if you elect to publish this personal and confidential letter to any person. suit will be filed forthwith.

     Govern yourself accordingly.

                                                             Very truly yours,
                                                              Jeremiah A. Denton III

Anti-CAIR Press Release 007/04

February 27, 2004

ACAIR Threatened With Lawsuit by CAIR

    On January 7th, 2004, the director of Anti-Council on American Islamic Relations (ACAIR) received a letter from an attorney representing the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).  In the letter, Jeremiah Denton III, a Virginia Beach, Va. Attorney, threatened a lawsuit for defamation over comments made in “press releases” by ACAIR.

    ACAIR, a Virginia Beach, Va. based grass roots organization opposed to the militant Islam supporting CAIR, temporarily shut down operations in early January in response to the CAIR legal threat.  Since then, ACAIR has limited its press releases and commentary to avoid provoking a lawsuit from CAIR.  In the meanwhile, ACAIR staff has carefully examined all the material presented on our web site for accuracy.  We have concluded that all material is accurate, truthful and is reliably sourced.

    Accordingly, effective immediately, Anti-CAIR is resuming normal operations in our “war” against militant Islam.  In addition, we are working on new programs and procedures to counteract the influence of CAIR in the national media and on the local front. ACAIR will seek to provide more “cutting edge” material on CAIR and will work more closely with other groups fighting CAIR and other anti-American militant Islamist groups.  In short, we’re expanding.

    We do not know what the future will bring, but should CAIR launch a lawsuit against ACAIR, we know that the truth is an absolute defense against an accusation of defamation and we stand ready to vigorously defend our position.

    ACAIR staff would like to thank all those individuals and groups who have lent their support in this trying time.

The full text of the letter is posted on the ACAIR web site.

is pleased to answer any questions from the public and press.

For Immediate Release:

Lawsuit exposes Federal cover-up of Saudi-funded terrorist net in Florida
from John Loftus

For twenty years I have served without compensation as a lawyer for federal whistleblowers within the US intelligence community.In the last year, I have received highly classified information from several of my confidential clients concerning a Saudi covert operation.The Saudi relationship is so sensitive that, for more than a decade, federal prosecutors and counter-terrorist agents have been ordered to shut down their investigations for reasons of foreign policy.

I am filing a lawsuit in Hillsborough County Court to expose the manner in which Florida charities were used as a money laundry for tax-deductible terrorism.The complaint cites specific testimony including highly classified information which has never been released before.

Simply put, the Saudi Government was laundering money through Florida charities run by USF Professor Sami Al Arian for the support of terrorist groups in the Middle East. Through the Al Arian network and others, the Saudi Government secretly funded Al Qaida, Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The Saudi purpose was twofold: the destruction of the State of Israel and the prevention of the formation of an independent Palestinian State.

Two particular terrorist groups, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, were specifically chosen and funded by the Saudis for their willingness to undermine Arafat’s Palestinian Authority.The secret Saudi goal was to create such animosity between Israel and the Palestinian Authority that it would wreck any chance for the creation of an independent Palestinian State.Their tactics specifically called for the intimidation or murder of those Palestinians who were willing to work with Israel for peace.

To put it bluntly, the covert Saudi network in Florida funded the murders of fellow Muslims for the crime of wanting to create the first democratic Arab state. Whatever harm the Israelis may have done, they did build an excellent public education system, including several universities, for the benefit of their Palestinian neighbors. That was the problem.

While literacy in the Arab world is below 50%, in Israel it is 97%.Israel is the only place in the Middle East where an Arab woman can vote. After 50 years, Israel has created the first Arab class exposed to democracy, literacy and western values.

To the Saudis, a democratic Palestinian nation would be a cancer in the Arab world, a destabilizing example of freedom that would threaten Arab dictators everywhere.As King Fahd said, “next to the Jews, we hate the Palestinians the most.” The harder the Israelis and Palestinians worked for peace, the more money King Fahd poured into his murder for hire program.

The Saudi Government has already begun its spin operations, claiming that this terror network was a rogue operation financed by a radical Saudi businessman without the support or knowledge of the Saudi Government.The truth is that many of the Saudi Princes, notably Prince Bandahar and Prince Alwaheed, are good and loyal friends of America who want to lead Saudi Arabia into the modern world.Unfortunately, they are now in the minority in their own country.

King Fahd is on his death bed, and his half-brother and heir apparent, Crown Prince Abdullah depends on the most radical southern and eastern clans for his political base. The southern faction is the center of popular support for Al Qaida and the Taliban because it is the home of the most extreme Muslim sect, the Wahabbis.

Ninety nine percent of the Muslim world rejects the Wahabbi religious tenets as utterly repugnant to the teachings and examples of the Prophet as written down in the Hadith. Since most Wahabbis are functionally illiterate, they cannot read about this conflict on their own.Typically, they memorize a few passages of the Koran taken out of context, and never read the accompanying Hadith for explanation.

For example, the Wahabbis are taught by rote that Jews are subhumans who should be killed as a religious duty. In contrast, the Hadith explains that the prophet Mohammed honored Jews, married a Jewish wife, forbade forced conversions of Jews, always bowed in respect when a Jewish funeral passed, and promised that good and faithful Jews would go to Paradise just as good Muslims and Christians would, and that the Jews would have their Holy Place in the west (meaning Jerusalem) while Muslims would have their Holy Place in the East (meaning Mecca).

Illiteracy is a weapon of oppression.The Saudis, and their Wahabbi protégés, the Taliban, have decreed that women cannot work or even sit in the front seat of a car. In contrast, the Hadith records that the Prophet worked for his wife, and that she drove her own caravans in international commerce. The Prophet forbade racism, the Wahabbis practice it, especially against their non-Arab Shiite minority.

The Wahabbis (both in Saudi Arabia and the Taliban) discriminate viciously against women. The Prophet, who lovingly raised three daughters, insisted that women should have substantially equal rights in contract, ownership, and divorce.

The Muslim faith envisioned by the Prophet in the Koran and recorded by his contemporaries in the Hadith is a religion that practices tolerance towards all races and religions, stresses the extreme importance of literacy and education, and elevates the status of women to unprecedented levels in many societies.

This is the gentle, peaceful Muslim faith practiced everywhere in the world, except in Saudi Arabia and the Taliban provinces of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Muslim scholars speak derisively about the primitive Wahabbi apostasy, but rarely in public.

The reason for this deafening silence is simple, most Mosques in the world are impoverished and depend upon Saudi subsidies for their operation. In return, however, the Saudis have gained a foothold for proselytizing and radicalizing the Muslim youth through religious education in the form of militant Wahabbism. Children learn to hate because they are being taught that way.

The Saudi charitable network in America that began with religious education evolved into other areas over the decades. The Saudis dabbled with funding anti-Semitic hate groups as a means of breaking down American support for Israel. After the fall of communism, the Saudis took over funding the most militant terror organizations for direct attacks against Jewish and Palestinian supporters of the peace process.

Year after year, members of the intelligence community warned that a rising wave of terror was coming. Oliver North wrote in his autobiography that every time he tried to do something about terrorism, he was told to stop because it would embarrass the Saudi Government. John O’Neill quit his job as head of FBI counter-terrorism for the same reason. Jonathan Pollard went to jail.

Federal agents in Tampa, who had known about the Saudi-Sami Al Arian connection since 1990, were ordered to drop the investigation in 1995. The Saudi influence buying machine had effectively shut down any threat of criminal prosecution. Those Americans, including a former President, who lobbied for the Saudis have a lot to answer for. So do the Saudis.

With the explosive growth of Al Qaida and their Taliban allies, the Saudis finally recognized that they had gone too far. As Osama Bin Laden laughingly related on videotape, he was approached prior to the attack on the twin Trade Towers by his relatives, who offered him $300,000,000 to cancel the operation. Apparently, the Bin Laden family really had not broken off all ties and knew exactly what was coming. So, my clients say, did the Saudis.

Six months later, a much chagrined Prince Abdullah belatedly announced that the Saudis would release the names of the terrorists which their charities had “unwittingly” funded, but only in Somalia and Asia. The main Saudi charities in Herndon, Virginia, and the Al Arian network in Florida are still untouched.

My clients are betting that the American influence peddlers hired by the Saudis will succeed once again in derailing a federal investigation. They came to me for help in exposing the cover-up. That is why I am filing this lawsuit.

In the months to come, the American public may finally begin to learn why the Saudi-Sami Al Arian terror networks went untouched for so long. It wasn’t an intelligence failure, it was a foreign policy failure. The orders were not to embarrass the Saudi Government. Year after years, the cover-up orders came from the State Department and the White House. The CIA, the FBI, and the Justice Department just did what they were told.

No one intended the harsh consequences of letting the Saudi’s get away with it again and again. Only after September 11, when the Treasury Department found the financial transactions linking the Saudi charities directly to Osama bin Laden, did American officials realize the extent of their betrayal.

We are not alone in our grief and anger. Saudi money sabotaged every Israeli initiative to make peace. The bewildered Palestinians may finally realize that they have been stabbed in the back by an Arab brother. The rules have changed after September 11, but the bottom line remains the same: if we want to stop terrorism, we have to tell the Saudis to stop funding it.

An Important Message From Jihad Unspun

It is unfortunate indeed that you have failed to protect the people who post on your board. I have asked you repeatedly to remove my posts over the past 24 hours in light of the fact that you are under SERIOUS INVESTIGATION from the authorities. The management (if it can be called that) continues to act irresponsibly, preferring to continue to feed your own already bloated egos rather than to protect the many young peoples names and email addresses and posts that are contained in your database.

As of now we have taken two initial steps. We have snagged a copy of your database which currently resides on an unsecured server. In addition, we have contacted the German ISPs who you intend to move to, advising them that it will not be in there best interests to provide you with hosting services.

Kindly remove as per our previous requests all references to Jihad Unspun and advise your members of the REAL situation that is going on so that they may make informed decisions as whether to continue to post to this infiltrated board or delete their posts also. It is painfully obvious you are unable to protect yourselves and you have a moral obligation to make your situation known so that at least individuals may protect themselves.

Should you fail to heed my requests again, be advised I will be escalating events to make ensure this request is carried out.

Govern yourselves accordingly.

There is no lawsuit. Read the article.

CAIR has a long history of defending and supporting muslim terrorists. They openly support hamas, a terror organization responsible for dozens of horrific deaths.

Three major CAIR principals have been arrested for muslim terrorism and muslim terror related activities.
