It’s called “legal jihad” and “lawfare”—and it’s one of the tactics in the tool chest of radical Islam.
“Legal jihad” uses lawsuits or threats of lawsuits to intimidate critics of radical Islam.
Another intimidation tactic being increasingly employed by groups like CAIR is warnings and even threats lodged against hotels and other venues that host events that expose the threat of radical Islam. The objective is to get the events canceled or shut down.
The good news is there are organizations like the Thomas More Law Center that are successfully fighting back against these tactics.
