Â Litigation JihadÂ
MOBILE, AlaÂ â€”Â The owner of a large southwest Alabama car dealership derided as “Taliban Toyota” by a competitor has been awarded $7.5 million in damages after a jury trial for his slander claim.
Iranian-born Shawn Esfahani, owner of Eastern Shore Toyota in Daphne, Alabama, sought $28 million in compensatory and punitive damages from Bob Tyler Toyota, claiming employees at that Pensacola, Florida-based dealership falsely portrayed him as an Islamist militant to customers.
“The feeling I received in the courtroom for the truth to come out was worth a lot more than any money anybody can give me,” Esfahani told Reuters on Tuesday.
Esfahani’s lawsuit said that Bob Tyler sales manager Fred Kenner told at least one couple considering buying from Eastern Shore Toyota in 2009 that Esfahani was of Middle Eastern descent and was “helping fund the insurgents there and is also laundering money for them.”

In “Alleged DHS leaker Elibiary the only adviser given access to sensitive law enforcement database” atÂ PJ Media, November 3 (thanks to T.T.), Patrick Poole shows that the story that he broke recently and that I discussedÂ hereÂ is even worse than was originally known. In yet another stunning example of government capitulation to Islamic supremacism, Mohamed Elibiary, who is alleged to have leaked sensitive intel documents to Leftist media, was theÂ onlyÂ DHS adviser who had access to those documents:
There’s yet another update to myÂ exclusive PJM reportÂ last week that Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council member Mohamed Elibiary allegedly leaked sensitive law enforcement documents prepared by the Texas Department of Public Safety obtained thru theÂ Homeland Security State and Local Intelligence Community of InterestÂ (HS SLIC) to a left-leaning media outlet claiming that the reports represented a pattern of “Islamophobia” to attack TX Governor and presidential candidate Rick Perry. According to my source at the publication, they declined to run the story that Elibiary pitched because they didn’t believe that the TX DPS reports were “Islamophobic”. The source also said that reports were marked “For Official Use Only” (FOUO).In that same story, I received confirmation from TX DPS Director Steve McCraw, who confirmed that Elibiary had obtained TX DPS materials from the HS SLIC, saying:
We know that he has accessed DPS documents and downloaded them.
This past Monday IÂ reportedÂ that McCraw had formally asked the Department of Homeland Security to open an investigation into these allegations in a phone call late last week with DHS Deputy Undersecretary for Intelligence and Analysis Bart Johnson. Rep. Louie Gohmert alsoÂ grilled DHS Secretary Janet NapolitanoÂ on these allegations in a House Judiciary Committee hearing last week.
And yesterday IÂ reportedÂ from multiple sources that Elibiary’s access to the HS SLIC has been revoked.
Now comes an even more disturbing revelation from inside DHS that Mohamed Elibiary is the only member of theÂ Homeland Security Advisory CouncilÂ â€“ one out of 26 members â€“ who has been given access to the HS SLIC database.
I have repeatedly asked DHS spokesman Chris Ortman by phone and email why Elibiary was given special access to the HS SLIC database, and when and how that special access was given, but after more than a week I have received no reply.
This new development raises questions about why an outside adviser who is not employed by any state or local law enforcement agency would be given access to a database intended for sharing intelligence between agencies. It should be noted that highly sensitive material, including FBI source reporting and terror watch lists, are posted on the HS SLIC system and would have been available to Elibiary.
