One year ago today, constitutional attorneys David Yerushalmi and Robert J. Muise officially launched the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC). In doing so, Yerushalmi, an orthodox Jew, and Muise, an orthodox Catholic, created the Nation’s first authentic Judeo-Christian public interest law firm. In this short amount of time, AFLC has emerged – according to former federal prosecutor and National Review columnist Andrew C. McCarthy – as the “Nation’s leading public interest law firm fighting . . . in America.”
In the past year, Yerushalmi and Muise have fought – and won – against notorious abortion clinics, government censorship, and secular progressive organizations like the Freedom from Religion Foundation. In addition, AFLC has achieved dramatic success in fighting the “civilization jihad” being waged by the Muslim Brotherhood and other sharia-adherent Islamists operating within the United States, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Moreover, AFLC continues to advance its groundbreaking public policy and educational programs, most notably through advocating the American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) model legislation and petition drives to raise awareness about the threat of sharia law.
As AFLC executes its second year of operations, Yerushalmi and Muise will continue to aggressively advance and defend our Nation’s Judeo-Christian heritage by prosecuting cases that uphold religious liberty, the freedom of speech, the sanctity of human life, and the traditional family. They will continue to litigate to promote limited government, a renewed federalism, and a strong national defense, which includes the right of private citizens to bear arms. And they will continue to engage the enemy with offensive “lawfare” to defend our national sovereignty and to fight stealth jihad in all of its forms.
Finally, Yerushalmi and Muise wish to express their sincere appreciation for all of the faithful and patriotic Americans who have generously supported AFLC, which does not charge for its services.
As AFLC looks ahead, Yerushalmi and Muise are reminded of the words of President Ronald Reagan, who warned us that: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”
