In “Chilling the unwilling,” Paul referred to the string of legal actions brought by Islamist organizations nationwide to stifle criticism, including criticism of their connections with terrorists. He mentioned in particular the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) and its “flimsy” lawsuit against Steven Emerson and others.
Dean Barnett lives in Boston and blogs at Soxblog. In his December 14 Daily Standard column “A mosque grows in Boston,” Dean takes a close look at the ISB and its lawsuit against the local Fox affiliate, the Boston Herald, Steve Emerson and other private citizens.
Dean is a lawyer by trade, has read all the court filings and characterizes the lawsuit as “frivolous” and “contemptible.” It’s a huge story, but that’s not the half of it, as Dean makes clear in his terrific column.
