When we last left law student Khurrum Awan and his pals at the Canadian Islamic Congress (CIC), they’d been turned into international laughingstocks.

That’s a pretty predictable outcome when you sue Mark Steyn and Canada’s oldest newsmagazine for “Islamophobic hate speech” — after Steyn & co. simply quoted some Muslim supremacists in their very own words boasting about their plans to take over the West by “outbreeding” the infidels.

Awan and his fellow belligerents lost, but not until Maclean’s magazine shelled out an estimated $2 million in their own defense.

(The Muslim troublemakers had all their legal fees paid for by Canadian taxpayers.)

I’ve written about that case, and others, in my book The Tyranny of Nice.

Now, another “character” in that book, broadcaster and publisher Ezra Levant, is the one being hounded by Khurram Aman.

You see, Levant attended Steyn’s trial and live-blogged it in his own inimitable — that is, cheeky and candid — fashion to the delight of readers.

Every reader except Awan, who as the leader of the so-called CIC “sockpuppets,” was the target of much of Levant’s tart criticism.

Awan sued Levant for libel back then.

The case is finally in court.

Nuisance lawsuits, an entrenched tactic of stealth jihad.

Taking out ads in American newspapers, funding chairs of Islamic studies at universities and, now, some stupid troupe of very western looking Muslims mocking American audiences for criticizing Islam, that all encompassing societal and religious system in whose name egregious and filthy acts have been and continue to be committed all over the planet.

And who's funding that little "artistic endeavor" ?

The time is coming when we will all be inscribed in the National Victim Index and be taxed or be paid accordingly. Through a complex formula it will be determined how much of a victim or a victimizer one is. Then if you are 100% victim you shall be given the money of those who are 100% victimizer.

The hobgoblin of small minds isn’t consistency, it’s multiculturalism.

Canada needs to change its laws so that vexatious litigators who lose in court are faced with not only paying all legal costs (for both sides), but also given heavy financial penalties (so as to act as a deterrent).

Canadian judges recognize and via precedents know how to deal with vexatious litigation. Ezra should have the means at his disposal to deal afterwards with malicious prosecution. At least that is my fervent hope.

Ezra: as Churchill encouraged the righteous : "Be the carrier of the light".

The IRS uses the same tactic. They know they are wrong, and are going to lose in court, but it's going to cost you a fortune to defend yourself.
