Philippe Magnan, author of the web site Poste de veille (“Observatory” or “Watchtower”), which criticizes radical Islam, its political programme and its growing interference in Quebec society, has been sued by Dalila Awada.
In her decision of July 10th 2018, the judge Carole Julien of Quebec Superior Court ruled in favour of Ms. Awada. Mr. Magnan is found guilty of defaming Ms. Awada and must pay her $60,000, not including court fees. But Philippe Magnan is appealing the decision.
We know that Islamists and their objective allies try to silence all criticism of Islam and of Islamism by any possible means, including the courts. To defend freedom of expression and freedom of conscience, allowing them free rein is not an option!
