Dear friends,

Peace and Greeting:

After a short and incredible argument by Lamis Deek, attorney for Sheepshead Bay Muslim community, the result we were all looking for was given swiftly by the judge! The Bay People case dismissed! Their argument did not have a leg to stand on. I will send a longer email detailing the argument later today.

In the meantime, congratulations to the Sheepshead Bay Muslim community and all who believe in the right to worship anywhere in America.

Lastly, thank you to all of MCN’s friends, allies, and supporters for coming out today to stand with the Muslim community in their quest for religious freedom.
