Lawfare is term that refers to Muslim use of the law as an asymmetrical warfare weapon. Win or lose Muslims sue, usually financed by Saudi Arabia, thus tying their victims in years of costly litigation. The result has had a chilling effect on the publishing industry and free speech in general. For example, Yale University Press refused to publish the controversial Danish cartoons in a book dealing with the events that occurred in Denmark.

In Canada, litigation wasted time and money of Maclean Magazine and Mark Steyn, after the magazine published an article that Muslims found offensive. And we all know that it doesn't not take a lot to offend them. Now two new trials are taking place. One in Canada against freedom of speech advocate Ezra Levant and in the Netherlands against Geert Wilders.

Here are some critical articles on the subject, and a must read about a topic that for too long has been neglected by the easily intimidated mainstream media. More are coming.
