Florida Family Association's achievements.

Florida Family Association's 2016 Achievements.

Influenced the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas linked AL JAZEERA AMERICA to shut down after two years of intense monitoring efforts.  Al  Jazeera,  whose leaders spew hate for Israel, who showed disdain for Charlie Hebdo Jihad victims,  is  a  news  company  that is owned by the non-democratic,  monarch  styled  emirate  of  Qatar  who  allows wealthy citizens to financially support ISIS, supports the Muslim Brotherhood, backs the head of Hamas, espouses Islamic Sharia law and does not afford citizens freedom of the press.  Al Jazeera purchased Current TV in January 2013 and changed it to Al Jazeera America.   Florida  Family Association started urging companies immediately to stop advertising on the channel. Florida Family Association's efforts that influenced 260 out of 275 (95%) companies  not to advertise on Al Jazeera America played a huge role in their decision to close the channel.  The New York  Times  reports "In a memo to the staff, Al Jazeera America’s chief executive, Al Anstey, said the “decision by Al Jazeera America’s board is driven by the fact that our business model is simply not sustainable in light of the economic challenges in the U.S. media marketplace."  Full report.

Influenced Fox to cancel production of a Muslim propaganda sitcom called Chad: An American Boy.   Variety.com reported:  Fox has ordered a pilot for “Chad: An American Boy,” a comedy which will star “SNL” alum Nasim Pedrad as a 14-year-old boy in a Middle Eastern Family.  Nasim Pedrad is a 34 year old woman playing the role of a 14 year old boy who is the figure head of a Muslim family in America.  The overwhelming number of Muslim families in America have an adult male as head of the household, not a 14 year old boy.   That made it unlikely that the show would have depicted  in any remotely realistic manner the way women are treated in observant Muslim homes.  Florida Family Association launched an online campaign on March 15, 2016 that asked people to send an email to inform officials at 21st Century Fox that they would urge companies to stop advertising on Chad: An American Boy if Fox aired the program.   In  August  2016,  Fox  cancelled  their  plans  to produce the show after receiving thousands of emails from Florida Family Association supporters.  Full report.

Influenced  two  hundred  thirty  seven  (237)  out of two hundred seventy (270) companies to stop advertising at Huffingtonpost.com because it published numerous erroneous Islamophobia propaganda articles.  Huffington Post propaganda mocks, belittles and blames people who are concerned about radical Islam in a manner that impairs the willingness of some people to speak up for public safety.  Florida Family Association started sending emails in April 2016  to  encourage  the  CEO  and  Marketing  Vice  President  of   companies   that   advertise  at Huffingtonpost.com to stop supporting the website's bias with their advertising dollars.  Islamophobia propaganda  is  the  top  tool  Islamists  use to influence Americans to ignore advancement of Sharia doctrine in America.  Unfortunately, it intimidates people to the point of stifling free speech in a manner that  hurts  public  safety.   Fear  of  being  branded  an  Islamophobe  played  a  role in suppressing communications that may have saved the lives of 63 Jihad victims in San Bernardino and Orlando.  Full report.

Influenced  the  Citadel  to  say  NO to cadet's request to wear hijab.  Florida Family Association sent out two email alerts in April 2016 which reported The Citadel considers breaking a 175 year old dress code to allow female Muslim  cadets  to  wear  hijabs.   More than five thousand  (5,000)  people  sent  emails   through  Floridafamily.org urging Citadel officials to reject the request to allow  cadets to wear hijabs.  CBS News reported on May 10, 2016:  The Citadel military college has decided a newly admitted Muslim student cannot wear her traditional Muslim headscarf if she enrolls.  Commandant  of  Cadets Geno Paluso decided allowing the student to wear the head covering known  as  a  hijab wouldn't be consistent with the school's policy of having cadets look similar.  The hijab is a symbol of oppression that is fostered by strict adherents of Sharia law which is antithetical to  the  rights  afforded  under  the  United States Constitution.    Islamists who want to Islamize America instead of assimilate into American culture are pushing these Sharia style customs.  Full report.

Influenced the Ohio Civil Rights Commission to reject and repudiate CAIR-OH complaint that Columbus Police unlawfully denied Muslim right to wear hijab while on duty.  “On August 20, 2015, Charging Party, Council on American Islamic Relations, Ohio (CAIR-OH),  filed  an  affidavit  with  the  Ohio  Civil  Rights Commission alleging that Respondent, City of Columbus, Division of  Police, engaged  in  unlawful  discriminatory practices.   Specifically, CAIR-OH filed a sworn charge alleging a female  police  cadet,  Ismahan Isse,  was   forced  to  resign because the police division did not allow her to wear her religiously mandated hijab (headscarf) while on duty.  Florida Family Association sent out several email alerts that asked people to send emails to encourage the Ohio Governor and Civil  Rights Commissioners to uphold Columbus Police Department's "values neutral dress code" for law enforcement officers.  More than fifteen thousand (15,000) people sent emails through Floridafamily.org to the governor and commission.  On July 28, 2016, the commission  unanimously voted to uphold the Columbus Police Department’s “values neutral dress code.”  Full report.

Influenced Hampshire College to restore the American flag to its rightful place.  Florida Family Association sent out email alerts on November 28, 2016 and November 29, 2016 titled Hampshire College bans flying American flag so it can focus on halting Islamophobia, promoting gay rights.  The email alerts encouraged people to send an email that educated Hampshire College Board of Trustees and officers regarding the negative influence of alleged Islamophobia educational campaigns on public safety and urged them to return the American flag to its rightful place.  More than 5,000 people sent emails to each of Hampshire College’s nineteen Board of Trustees and four Executive Officers as of December 1, 2016.  Additionally, over a thousand people waved American flags in front of the college campus on Sunday, November 27, 2016 to protest removal of the flag.  Masslive.com reported on December 2, 2016 Hampshire College raises the American flag Friday morning.  Full report.

Countered CAIR’s demand that an election official reinstate a voting precinct at a mosque  the  president  of  which  is  the  FAU  professor who advocates Sharia sanctioned cutting off of hands.  Palm  Beach  County's elections supervisor moved a polling station from a Boca Raton mosque to a public library after receiving complaints from voters regarding the  mosque’s  president, Bassem Alhalabi, who advocated Sharia cutting off of hands as punishment during a Florida Atlantic University Islamophobia college campus event held on May 23, 2016.  CAIR demanded that the Supervisor of Elections return the polling status back to the mosque.  Thousands of people responded to Florida Family Association’s email alerts that asked supporters to send emails to thank the Supervisor of Elections and encourage her to stand her ground.  Susan Bucher, Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections, stood her ground.  Full report.

Encouraged Cargill not to cave in to CAIR’s demand for mass Muslim prayers in the workplace. CAIR represented a group of Muslim employees who wanted Cargill to provide for mass  Muslim  worship  in  the workplace several times per day.  This would have resulted in making Islamic Salah times for Muslim prayers a priority  over a company’s efficiency and profitability.  It would  also  have  placed  an unfair burden on other employees.  Thousands of people responded to Florida Family Association’s  email  alerts that asked them to send emails to encourage Cargill officials to stand their ground.  Cargill stood their ground.  Full report.          

Encouraged judge to deny bail for San Bernardino Jihad weapons purchaser.  Several news agencies reported on December 22, 2015:  Saying that he remains a "danger" to the community, a federal judge ordered that Enrique Marquez, former neighbor of one of the San Bernardino shooters, be held without bail. Enrique Marquez was charged  with  conspiracy  support  of  terrorists on December 17, 2015.  Florida Family Association sent out email alerts that reported Bail hearing for San Bernardino weapons purchaser was set for Monday, December 21, 2015.  The email alerts encouraged subscribers to send  emails urging the magistrate judge to "put public safety first and  show  zero  tolerance  for  any  involvement in terrorism by denying bail for Enrique Marquez." The email subscribers sent to the court also  stated: "Most law enforcement professionals would conclude that the combination of Marquez’s violent fanaticism and suicidal tendencies pose a serious public safety risk." Thousands of people sent emails urging the court to deny bail.  One would think that no federal judge would grant bail to a person who enabled one of the worst Islamist terrorist attacks in America since September 11, 2001. However,  judges  have  released  on  bond   people accused  of  supporting  terrorism.   U.S.  District Magistrate Judge James Knepp’s release of Sultane Roome Salim in December 2015 is an example.  Full report.

Influenced UC Berkeley to pull back their presence at CAIR Islamophobia press conference.  CAIR  announced:   On June 20, 2016 the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the  Center  for Race and Gender  at UC  Berkeley will release a report detailing the more than $200 million provided to 33  Islamophobic  groups  nationwide in recent years.  Thousands of people sent emails in response  to  Florida  Family  Association  email  alerts  that  encouraged them to send emails urging University of California  Berkeley officials  to stop publishing Islamophobia  reports that suppress free speech in a manner that can adversely impact public safety.  UC Berkeley was a NO show at the press  conference  in  many  ways.   No personnel  from  UC  Berkeley attended or spoke at the press conference.  The backdrop and overhead graphics displayed only the CAIR name.  CAIR speakers did not mention UC Berkeley.  The Islamophobia report posted at Facebook.com/CAIRnational contained information from a UC Berkeley report that was prepared last year.  Hopefully, UC  Berkeley’s absence from the  speaker  podium,  absence  from  the  organizations  named  on the backdrop display and the absence of any new report from UC Berkeley means they will not associate with CAIR in the future.  Full report.

Encouraged Ariens Company not to cave in to CAIR’s demand for mass Muslim prayers in the workplace. CAIR represented a group of Muslim employees who wanted Ariens Company to provide for mass  Muslim  worship  in  the workplace several times per day.  This would have resulted in making Islamic Salah times for Muslim prayers a priority  over a company’s efficiency and  profitability.    It would  also  have  placed  an unfair burden on other employees.  Thousands of people responded to Florida Family Association’s  email   alerts  that  asked  them  to  send   emails to encourage Ariens Company officials to stand their ground.  Ariens Company stood their ground.  Full report.

Encouraged Florida Atlantic University officials to terminate professor who praised Sharia “cutting off of hands” at Islamophobia college campus event.  On May 23, 2016 Florida Atlantic University’s Muslim Student Association hosted an Islamophobia panel discussion.  FAU Associate Professor Bassem Alhalabi was included on the panel where he made the case for Sharia Law  and  it’s  provisions  of  capital  punishment,  including the cutting off of hands.  Florida Family Association launched an online campaign that encouraged thousands of people to express their concern to Florida Atlantic University officials.  Full report.

Asked FBI, FDLE and Orange County Sheriff where is Omar Mateen’s wife and are they going to let Noor Salman receive Mateen’s life insurance benefits?  Omar Mateen killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a mass shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida on June 12, 2016.  He was killed in a shootout with the local police.  Noor Salman, Omar Mateen's wife, drove Mateen to scout out Downtown Disney and the Pulse club for attack.  She drove him to the gun store.  She knew in advance that he planned to kill innocent people.  Yet the feds allowed her to go free.   Will  they  also allow Noor Salman to collect  Omar  Mateen's  life  insurance?   The US Attorney in California  filed suit to confiscate the life insurance benefits of the Jihadist killer in San Bernardino.  Florida Family Association continues to pursue the truth in this case.  Report one and report two.

Thanked Southwest Airlines and  encouraged the United States Department of Transportation Acting General Counsel to put public safety over political correctness in CAIR discrimination complaint against Southwest Airlines.   CAIR filed a complaint with  U. S. Department of Transportation Office of Aviation Enforcement and Proceedings against Southwest Airlines for alleged racial and religious profiling of a Muslim passenger.  In its complaint, CAIR-SFBA stated: "We write to request a federal investigation on behalf of our client, Mr. Khairuldeen Makhzoomi, who was removed from a Southwest Airlines flight for speaking Arabic while sitting in a plane." Florida Family Association sent out email alerts in October 2016 that encouraged people to send an email to thank Southwest Airline officials for putting public safety first and send another email to urge the U.S. Department of Transportation to put public safety first when resolving this complaint.  Report one and report two.

Supported law enforcement after CAIR Chicago opposed counter terror tactical training by the Illinois Tactical Officers Association.   On October 4, 2016 CAIR-Chicago expressed  concerns about anti-Muslim and hyper-militarized tactical training at the  upcoming  Illinois  Tactical  Officers  Association’s  2016  Tactical  Training Conference taking place  at the Stonegate Conference Center from October 9-13. CAIR-Chicago is calling on Stonegate as well as Cook County Department  of  Homeland Security & Emergency  Management  (DHSEM)  and  other government agencies  to  end  their  relationships  with  ITOA.   Florida  Family  Association  launched an online campaign that encouraged people to send emails to thank Illinois Tactical Officers Association, Cook County  Department  of  Homeland Security & Emergency Management and Stonegate Conference and  Banquet Center officials for their efforts to properly  train  law  enforcement  to   more   fully understand how to protect the public from terrorism.  Thousands  of people sent emails expressing their appreciation.  Full report.

Supported law enforcement  after  CAIR opposed  counter terror tactical training  by a Virginia Sheriff.  On October 24, 2016, CAIR called on the Green County Sheriff’s office to drop sponsorship of a November 5, 2016 “Understanding the Threat” seminar being conducted by former FBI  Special  Agent  and  counter terrorism expert John Guandolo because CAIR claimed that “he is a notorious Islamophobe  and anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist.”    Florida Family Association launched an online campaign  that  encouraged  people  to send emails to thank Green County Sheriff Steven Smith for his efforts  to  properly  train  law  enforcement  to   more fully understand how to protect the public from terrorism.  Thousands  of people sent emails expressing their appreciation.  Full report.

Christianpost.org reports the following regarding Florida Family Association:  “Don't let the name deceive you. Florida Family Association is a national organization that harnesses online  citizen activism through its massive email list to change organizations through economic and public pressure. They urge companies not to advertise on the Islamic terror apologist network Al Jazeera,  remind  universities  to  support  free speech and not cancel films and speakers critical of Islamism, and hold the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) feet to the fire for their leaders past support for terrorism and saying Muslims are above the law of the land.”  Christianpost.org report.

The  Council on American Islamic Relations reports the following in their Islamophobia Report about Florida Family Association:  “The Florida Family Association, founded in 1987 by David Caton, has pressured companies and courts to  adhere  to  anti-Muslim  practices.  Despite  operating only in Florida, FFA has garnered national attention. FFA is part of the U.S. Islamophobia network's inner core.”  CAIR report.
