Reem Assil has a first amendment problem

by Susan Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017 at 11:25 AM

The fascism of the left.

Reem Assil wants to silence us. She repeatedly calls security and the Oakland Police Department to monitor our every move. Initially law enforcement even asked us to leave. But we know our rights.

Now Assil has gone much further. She has sued three of the protestors to obtain temporary restraining orders. The Alameda County Superior Court has twice denied Assil’s requests. Yet she perseveres with lawsuits aimed at quashing the voices of conscience about Odeh’s many crimes.

Why would Assil choose to lionize a convicted terrorist in a larger than life mural and not expect people to respond? And when they do, she quickly calls for cover from law enforcement and applies for restraining orders?

It is safe to say that Reem Assil only values free speech when it agrees with her own biased views.

Vigils continue for Rasmea Odeh’s victims outside Reem’s Oakland Bakery despit threats

by Legal insurrection Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017 at 5:27 PM

According to someone who was there, the police were called again but refused to take any action against the protesters, even commenting that the protesters had a right to be there. And indeed, they do have that right to honor the victims, just as Reem’s has a right to honor the terrorist perpetrator.

Needless to say, the anti-Israel Jewish Voice for Peace which is vocal in support of terrorists like Rasmea and Marwan Barghouti, is supporting Reem’s.

Reem’s Bakery, JVP says, “Tastes as Delicious as Freedom.” Rasmea’s terror victims could not be reached for comment as to whether they agree.

Some Background Needed

by Reem's bakery glorifies violence Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017 at 1:03 PM

From the J weekly: A bakery that dishes out hatred in Oakland

The bakery owner suggests that she is open to dialogue and having the tough conversations. I believe that to be another lie. We would all find it appalling if a restaurant opened in Oakland that drew inspiration from the terrorist who killed so many young people in Manchester. We would also find it humorous if our fictitious restaurateur thought this would be a platform for dialogue. As a private establishment, a real-life restaurant can make its own choices. As consumers, I suggest we do the same. I won’t support a bakery that sprinkles each dish with hate.

Good News: Reem Assil cancels her attack

by Oakland-ish Monday, Oct. 16, 2017 at 4:43 PM

Good News . Reem Assil has withdrawn her fascist attempt to silence the voices of local peace and justice activists. Her motivation appears to be financial.

Reem Assil dropped the lawsuit after the protesters served notice of intent to seek attorney’s fees under anti-SLAPP statute.

From Legal Insurrection: A statement from the attorneys for Michael Lumish:

Early yesterday morning, we provided notice to Ms. Assil’s counsel that we were going to appear in court ex parte on Wednesday to adjust certain pending case dates because we would be filing later that day – on behalf of Mr. Lumish – a motion to strike Ms. Assil’s case as a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation (“SLAPP” suit) designed to chill Mr. Lumish’s exercise of his free speech rights. A few hours later, while we were waiting for the Court to provide a hearing date for our Anti-SLAPP motion, we received word from the Court of the plaintiff’s voluntary dismissal.

Because Ms. Assil’s lawsuit against Mr. Lumish was precisely the type of effort to use the courts to try to obtain a content-based prior restraint on political speech, which California law does not countenance, we are very pleased that Mr. Lumish is no longer facing the burden of having to deal with such an action and attempt to intimidate him and others from engaging in peaceful protest. In light of the time and effort that we were required to invest in order to vindicate Mr. Lumish and to stand up for his free speech rights, we are considering the possibility of recovering defense fees and costs from Ms. Assil and/or her counsel in connection with this action and with their effort to silence protest against Ms. Assil’s own political speech and choice to use her restaurant to honor a convicted murderer and terrorist.

Protests at Reem's

by Zoe Monday, Oct. 30, 2017 at 11:40 AM

Reem Assil never had any intention of going through with the lawsuit. She was just trying to stop the protests at her restaurant. She thought the Zionists would be too scared to come back after they were served.
