On Saturday, the Paulding County Republican Examiner (PCRE) was notified by the administrator of “Sharia Unveiled” at shariaunveiled.wordpress.com, that his site was taken down on August 14, 2013 without notice by WordPress.
The administrator, Schuyler Montague, told PCRE that when he accessed his blog, he read, “This blog has been archived or suspended for a violation of our Terms of Service. For more information and to contact us please read this support document”.
“Yes, they shut down our website. As you can see… WordPress.com attributes this "suspension" to a violation of the Terms of Service,” said Montague.
“Yet, they refuse to provide us with even one example of a violation. We are sure that we have not committed any violations of their TOS.”
Sharia laws, based under Islamic Law, carry out brutal punishments for various infractions in the Muslim world and is being pushed in various Western nations, over-riding a nation’s law and court system. Sharia laws also views non-Muslims as second-class citizens, sanctions inequality between men and women and prescribes cruel and unusual punishments for crimes.
The infiltration of radical Islamist's has been active on Facebook, Twitter, and on other Internet outlets placing bounties on anti-Islam and anti-Sharia websites and blog administrators.
In June 2013, a news report revealed that an Islamic Jihadist website, the “Islamic Socialist NetWork (ISN)" which was for the second time shut down, based out of the U.K. was found where Muslims in the U.K., Australia, and Canada posted cash bounties on some operators of counter-jihad bloggers and Facebook users for speaking out about Islam.
Montague stated that he believes ISN and the radical Islamist organization (CAIR) here in the U.S. were responsible for the removal of his blog, a blog he operated for two years without any problems.
“We believe we have been targeted for a combination of reasons. We share the truth about Islam and Sharia Law with the world and the truth runs counter to this (Obama) administration's narrative. We have also been investigating several cases and at least two of the cases have resulted in connections to one or more departments/agencies within the U.S. Federal Government,” Montague said.
“We believe it is also possible that CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), which is a Hamas Terrorist Organization Front group may have told wordpress.com to shut us down… and it is also possible that we are the victims of the "Blasphemy Laws" that are being advanced through the U.N., now via the Islanbul Process.”
Montague also pointed out that CAIR did this to his friend, Bonnie, who owns the site, "Bare Naked Islam" but she was able to reinstate her website under a secure network.
CAIR has also been working on a list of outing anyone or groups that oppose Sharia laws and Islam, putting these groups and individuals in danger.
“We were working on a “Part II: Expose” where we actually uncovered even more details into the Islamic Socialist Network and we were planning on releasing our findings in the very near future. We did have a very large viewer-ship on our site from 195 countries. I strongly believe we were having a positive impact on individuals and perhaps even a negative impact on the current administration,” Montague said.
Since my site's inception.. I have always tried to be a voice for the persecuted, regardless of their religion, ethnicity or nationality. The ironic thing is… more than likely, I spoke out for certain members of the very group of people that achieved in getting our site shut down. I can assure you that… I am more vocal and active in the defense of Muslim women and children than 99% of Muslims themselves, “said Montague.
“We discovered in our prior investigation as to the reason for Facebook shutting down those pages was, in part, a result of this Obama administration’s pressure on social sites to begin removing pages and sites that speak against Islam. One way to take away a person's "freedom of the press and speech" is to attack those who provide him a venue or platform.”
The Paulding County Republican Examiner contacted WordPress for answers but they refused to give an a simple explanation, claiming privacy issues, of why Montague blog was shut down.
