We Do Win One - Sometimes

For over 5 years and paying $6000 a year, the Middle East Christian Association, an association for the human rights of Christians in the Middle East, maintains a chat room provided by Paltalk to speak to Christian users from the Middle East.

But it seems such communications between middle-east Christians has gotten some Muslim’s panties in a bunch and they decided to flex their intimidation muscles upon the provider of the chat room and bully them into dropping the Christian chat room.

Last month a group of users from Middle East that are non Christians approached the management of Paltalk. They proceeded to threaten the Paltalk management, claiming that if they did not close all the Christians rooms, then the Middle East would proceed in a total boycott of the program. The users even wrote in Arabic newspapers proclaiming the same thing.

Unfortunately Paltalk caved into their demands and banned most of the Christian administrators without a liable reason. As if this wasn't enough, they also stopped any user from the Middle East from entering Christian rooms. This stopped all communication between us and our friends over there, as well as it allowed non Christian rooms to continue their bashing of the Christian religion without any way for us to defend ourselves.

But that’s not the end of the story. The leadership at ACT! for America and American Congress for Truth got involved and decided to contact PalTalk to encourage them to dismiss this Islamist effort to stifle free speech.

Today, in response to our letter, Paltalk confirmed to us that they are not going to ever submit to any petition directed against constitutionally protected freedom of speech. Further, they asserted they will never bow to the pressure of the petition submitted by Muslim activists to shut down a Christian chat room that criticizes Islam. In fact, Paltalk emphatically told us that the Muslim activists spread the false rumor about Paltalk closing the Coptic Christian room if 1 million signatures were obtained for their petition. This amounted to classic Islamic ‘taqiyyah’ – deception used to advance the cause of Islam.

We are of course delighted to hear that Paltalk, the most prominent voice chat room service in the world, will not bow to Muslim activist pressure to shut down Christian rooms that these activists find "offensive." We would like to thank Paltalk for their strong stand to protect Constitutional Free Speech Rights.

One side benefit of this exchange: Palktalk said they would love to have Brigitte Gabriel host a weekly program on its large network.

Here’s how you can help.

Islamist assaults on free speech have become a staple in their arsenal. As we reported last week, legislation has been introduced in the New York legislature to protect journalists, authors and publishers from intimidation lawsuits filed in foreign courts. Such efforts at intimidation have been dubbed "libel terrorism." We will soon provide you an update on the status of this legislation and what you can do to help ensure its passage.

The best way to deal with bullies is to confront them – not appease them.

Lesson learned.
