I was scheduled to speak on April 18 at a Middle East Forum event to be held at the law offices of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel (Kramer Levin) in New York City, about my forthcoming book, Did Muhammad Exist? An Inquiry Into Islam's Obscure Origins. But the Islamic supremacist thugs at the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) found out about the event and pressured Kramer Levin to cancel it, in keeping with their nationwide campaign to demonize and silence all those who speak the truth about the global jihad and Islamic supremacism. Hamas-linked CAIR operatives will not meet me in debate, cannot refute what I say, and so they resort to this intimidation and pressure to keep the truth from being heard.
Kramer Levin, meanwhile, took the cowardly way out and set yet another bad precedent in allowing these Islamic supremacists to control the discourse and prevent free people from speaking the truth. Kramer Levin Executive Director Nicholas J. Tortorella wrote this to Hamas-linked CAIR:
From time to time we receive requests from not for profit or community organizations to use our conference rooms for meetings or other events. While we permit our facilities to be used occasionally for these purposes, Kramer Levin can take no responsibility for the content of these events and in no way endorses any opinions that may be expressed during them. In this instance, we were not aware of the controversy surrounding the speaker at the April 18th event. Now having been alerted to the situation, we have withdrawn permission for the event to take place at our offices.
Let Kramer Levin know that it is more controversial for them to cave to a Hamas-linked Islamic supremacist hate group. Email Tortorella at email@example.com and politely and firmly let him know the truth about Hamas-linked CAIR and the importance of free discourse. Hamas-linked CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case -- so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR's cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. Its California chapter distributed posters telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI.
This is not an organization that any American firm should be bowing to.
