The one who would not cave: Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld

August 2, 2010

After writing Funding Evil in 2003, terror finance expert Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld was sued by Saudi billionaire Khalid bin Mahfouz, whose terrorist connections she helped expose.  Although Ehrenfeld is an American citizen who did not actively advertise or sell the book in Great Britain, Khalid bin Mahfouz was able to sue her under English libel laws.

In May, Accuracy in Media’s (AIM) Roger Aronoff interviewed Ehrenfeld about terrorist finance and the lawsuit against her.  Many Money Jihad readers are familiar with the Ehrenfeld case, but this portion of the interview is a good summary of what Ehrenfeld was up against in her very own words:

Fortunately, the case has led to new laws in New York that protect writers from foreign libel judgments.  Listen to the full podcast of the interview, which also covers more recent terrorist finance developments, at Ehrenfeld’s American Center for Democracy website here or BlogTalkRadio archive for AIM here.
