This is the book that led to strengthening Americans' free speech rights. In this updated edition of Funding Evil, Dr. Ehrenfeld describes what it took to successfully stop qLibel Tourism, q from the silencing of American writers and publishers. It details how a single Saudi billionaire financier of al- Qaeda, managed to silence more than 45 writers and publishers - many Americans included - from exposing him and his ilk. He used British laws and courts that allow qlibel tourismq to conduct his qlawfare, q until he sued Dr. Ehrenfeld. She alone challenged him and the British courts. Her initiative led to the passage New York' State's anti-libel terrorism law, aka qRachel's Law, q and to the national SPEECH Act, signed into law in August 2010. These laws protect American writers and publishers in print and on the Internet from the enforcement of foreign libel judgements in the US. qFunding Evilq identifies who funds terrorism and how they do it, and why the Saudis don't want you to read this book. Funding Evil draws a roadmap illustrating how terrorist organizations -especially Islamist terror organizations are funded. It exposes the most vital and venemous sources of terror organizations. qFunding Evil ...is a crucially important book--really a milestone--in the history of the struggle for freedom of expression....Ehrenfeld achieved what the New York Times rightly called qA Victory for Writing..q Anyone interested in freedom of the mind should read this book and its intrepid author's new Afterword describing her successful legal adventures.q Daniel J.
