As you read this story, remember that the Islamic definition of slander has nothing to do with whether or not the facts stated are true or false–it has to do with whether or not what is said reflects positively on Islam. Reliance of the Traveller, described as the classic manual of Islamic law, defines slander in three ways, first, to mention of your brother that which he would dislike, second, revealing anything whose disclosure is resented, and third, anything that makes Muslims look bad. That leaves a lot of room for a statement to be called slander.
On Wednesday, ClickOrlando reported that Dr. Jonathan Matusitz, a communications instructor at the University of Central Florida, has been charged by the Coalition for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) with being anti-Islamic. Dr. Matusitz mentioned in a lecture that the reason that the White House’s foreign policy was so ineffective in combating Islamic terrorism is that the White House is in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood. That is an easily proven fact (use the search engine at the top of this page to find past articles on the Muslim Brotherhood). CAIR has charged Dr. Matusitz with “teaching hate.”
If you have not yet looked at the documents from the Holy Land Foundation Trial, please take the time to do so. Not only do these documents outline the plan to take away democracy in America and replace it with Sharia Law (democracy and Sharia Law are incompatible), but CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial.
Thank goodness the University of Central Florida is protecting Dr. Matusitz’s First Amendment rights. I hope they will continue to do so.
