CAIR is skillful at claiming victim status for Muslims, but Speller has made claiming victimhood a high art.
Saipov said in court: “The judgments that are made here are not important for me. They are not Allah’s judgments.” He added: “The Islamic State ISIS, in order to impose sharia on Earth, is leading a war.”
So the question of whether the government will monitor the mosques for “hate speech” is thrust aside, and Pearson is threatened for his “Islamophobia.”
So has moderate Islam prevailed? Not really.
