canada goose Maajid Nawaz wins defamation lawsuit against Reuters Worldcheck for calling him a canada goose

That canada goose outlet toronto factory suit is still in progress, but his canada goose outlet toronto address (and Hirsi Ali inclusion is palpable nonsense. Nawaz is a Muslim heads a reformist organization, and both he and Hirsi Ali are Muslimreformers(see Hirsi Ali last book, Heretic, a blueprint for reforming Islam).

But you may not know that Nawaz also sued Thomson Reuters World Check, which describes itself as highly structured database of intelligence on heightened risk individuals and organizations. That organization desginated Nawaz as a despite the fact that, as head of the think tank Quilliam, he spends much of his time fighting terrorism and trying to create a more moderate version of Islam.

Canada Goose Outlet As the Clarion Project reports today (they did misspell as the Reuters World Check called Nawaz a on a list of people sent to subscribers who want to ensure that they fulfilling their legal obligations to fight financial crime (presumably by not funding like Nawaz).

We have apologized to Mr. Nawaz for the error and apologize to our subscribers for any misunderstanding.” cheap canada goose uk

uk canada goose So far so good. I hope he wins the lawsuit against the SPLC, which is increasingly canada goose outlet online uk veering from its original mission to defend civil rights and promote tolerance. uk canada goose

canada goose coats In other good news, Clarion reports that Nawaz won the 2017 PinkNews Broadcaster of the Year Award for defending canada goose kensington parka uk gay rights on his LBC radio show. They also quote from his acceptance canada goose factory outlet speech: canada goose coats

cheap Canada Goose “When I saw that 0% of British Muslims surveyed believed that being gay was ever morally acceptable, when I saw that 52% of British Muslims wanted homosexuality to be criminalised, when I saw that the only 10 countries in the world that punished being gay canada goose outlet phone number with death were all Muslim majority, I was ashamed, infuriated, canada goose outlet mall outraged, and angry canada goose outlet trillium parka black all at the same time,” Nawaz told the crowd on accepting the award. But I knew Muslims who were gay, and so I realised that these results were also due to fear of speaking out. cheap Canada Goose

canada goose clearance It requires leadership. The sort of leadership that the British Muslim Mayor of London provided canada goose outlet online reviews here tonight. The sort of leadership thatImamMuhammad provided canada goose outlet ontario here tonight by offering prayers for everyone here. And that’s the sort of leadership I, and my producer Sandra, wanted to offer canada goose outlet locations in toronto through my LBC show. My show aims to be a home for you all. Thank you for this great honour in being able to speak out on your behalf.” canada goose clearance

canada goose coats on sale I was happy to see that canada goose outlet uk sale the award ceremony was also canada goose jacket outlet toronto attended by Prime Minister Theresa May, and Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party. It time for people to stop accusing Nawaz of terrorism. His activities are the antithesis of terrorism. canada goose coats on sale

I not a libel canada goose outlet in toronto law expert, but given that Nawaz is a figure, he have to prove the SPLC published the statements about him with malice, meaning with knowledge of their falsity or with reckless disregard as to whether they were true or false. That gonna be tough, given that the statements in questions are more in the nature of an opinion than a concise statement of fact. His best shot might be the SPLC refusal to retract its statements after he complained and after the petition (signed by many of us here) demanding that Nawaz and Hirsi Ali be removed from the anti Muslim list.

canada goose store so, I’m not sure I’d like to see him actually win in an American court, since a large judgment in his favor could have a effect on clearly protected speech by others. canada goose jacket outlet store I suspect the presiding judge might well prevent the case from ever reaching the jury on the merits. agree. It really not a case he canada goose coats uk should win, for the reasons we both stated. canada goose store

Canada Goose Online But I not a libel law expert either. I not any kind of expert (I went through two years of law school before leaving to run my business, though I may go back at some point now that I sold it). Canada Goose Online

What is totally bewildering to me is that after all this time, after their cover was blown with major coverage in the media, that the SPLC hasn tried to get in front of this scandal and just taken Nawaz and Ayaan Hirsi Ali off of their witch hunt list. Maybe not bewildering by deeply troubling: maybe they canada goose outlet england and their fanatical and hysterical followers are expecting to prevail in the lawsuit (the US isn the UK when it comes to proving libel). The way canada goose outlet reviews this canada goose outlet in chicago might be lining up should have us up at night. If Nawaz fails against the SPLC, we are all in big trouble. Get ready for Blasphemy Law.

buy canada goose jacket I wish Maajid all the best. I not pro suing everybody who labels you something, however, canada goose parka outlet if libel laws mean anything, suing a powerful ands wealthy organisation like the SPLC is what they are there for the little man punching up. Especially, as the SPLC claim is such a lie. buy canada goose jacket

However, I am uncertain if he will be successful. It will be difficult for him if he going through the US courts.

Canada Goose online But remember the names of those on the left who have sided with the SPLC. We know about the usual scumbags such as and his band of obsessive fleas, but don forget creeps such as PZ Myers have come out against Maajid Nawaz. If you needed any more evidence PZ is an anti liberal, left wing fascist, his attitude towards progressive Muslims confirms everything. Canada Goose online

Canada Goose Coats On Sale I had just visited PZ site a few days ago. I immediately found him supporting a tweet that promoted a misleading, derogatory caricature of New Atheists. Canada Goose Coats On Sale

canada goose uk outlet In the next post he supported a tweet that said to find Nazis: Post Fck Nazis, watch for the call people you disagree canada goose stockists uk with Nazis comments; you found Nazis! canada goose uk outlet

Yet we are canada goose outlet store near me in a time when and Supremacist is being thrown around in the most egregiously irresponsible manner to slander people who don agree. Google students shut down ucsc college republicans as only one example.

canadian goose jacket It exactly this crazed are with us or you too are a Nazi/White Supremacist thinking, casting it too wide net of slander, that needs to be challenged. Especially if a far leftist says canada goose outlet Nazis we really DO need to ask exactly are you calling a Nazi and why? Are you using the word accurately and responsibly? should a person react with this level headed caution rather than lock step fist pumping then that person can be branded a Nazi as well. canadian goose jacket

uk canada goose outlet It just a chilling canada goose outlet store toronto way of thinking and it been such a train wreck experience watching PZ go down that rabbit hole. uk canada goose outlet

canada goose factory sale It surprised me that Nawaz elected to file a lawsuit against the SPLC funded by donations (which includes my donation). I would have thought a better use of those funds would be to launch a PR campaign against the SPLC to educate liberals to how badly the SPLC has veered off course. This has the chance of both getting Nawaz and Ali off the SPLC list as well as providing corrective pressure for future actions by the canada goose outlet toronto location SPLC in order that it might once again become an organization fighting the good fight canada goose factory sale.
