ALERT: Zionist Activist Sues Blogger Activist and Wins

Please read the following and repost this story on your own blog. This Lee Kaplan fellow is the chief editor of DAFKA and is responsible for MUCH mischief here in the States. He is mentioned in my SARCASTICALLY written post, "You never know where "Christian" Advertising will take you" He also was one of the main forces behind the smear campaign against AlAwda and their moving the conference from UCR to the Hilton in Anaheim. He is the founder also of Stop the ISM

Mr. Kaplan is well known to be behind mobilizing people to go to pro-Palestinian events to undermine them.

Please go to Lee Kaplan Watch and give Yaman Salahi your support and pass this on to others.

So Mr. Kaplan, are you going to sue EVERYONE who uses your own words to expose you?

Right-Winger Sues Blogger And Wins

Lee Kaplan writes at David Horowitz's far-right, anti-Muslim A college student set up the blog Lee Kaplan Watch to expose what the guy is writing. He was sued by Kaplan in small claims court for "business interference," and Kaplan won $7500. because it was small claims court the judge was not required to explain his decision.

The blogger writes,

I hope that sufficient attention is paid to the great danger that what has happened to me poses to all of us. It is by all means a serious issue. My first amendment rights have been subverted with support from the courts, which only shows that everybody is in danger of facing these abusive small claims court defamation suits. My speech has been punished by a ruling with no opinion explaining why or advising me what not to do in the future. My credibility has been tarnished by a trial with incredibly low standards for admissible evidence and a messy, inconsistent court procedure. And, for me, worst of all: I will never know what element of Kaplan's claim, if any, the judge agreed with, though Kaplan will certainly continue to claim that all of them were accepted, though he knows well that this is not the case.
This is a freedom of speech and right-to-blog issue. We must do something to reverse this because it will become a convenient way for right-wingers to harass all of us.
