Some of Florida Family Association's more important achievements during the past 27 years include:

2015 Florida Family Association Achievements followed by summary of significant accomplishments.

Influenced 240 out of  258 companies (or 93%) to stop advertising on Al Jazeera America since January 2013.  Al Jazeera, whose leaders spew hate for Israel,  who showed disdain for Paris murder victims, is a news company that is owned by the non-democratic, monarch styled emirate of Qatar who allows wealthy citizens to financially support ISIS, supports the Muslim Brotherhood, backs the head of Hamas, espouses Islamic Sharia law and does not afford citizens freedom of the press.  One hundred  ninety nine (199)  companies  stopped advertising on Al Jazeera America after the Florida Family Association office communicated with the companies’ CEOs and Marketing VPs.  Forty one (41) companies stopped   advertising  on  Al   Jazeera  America  after  being   profiled  in Florida Family Association email campaigns.  

Email  server  delivered  25,000  emails  to  each  judge  on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals urging them to lift the ban on YouTube airing the film Innocence of Muslims.  Florida Family Association sent out seven email alerts since March 12, 2014 that asked subscribers to send emails to all forty three justices at the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals urging them to reverse their 3 judge panel  that  ordered  Google   to   remove   the   film Innocence of Muslims from Youtube.com.   Reuters reported on May 18, 2015 :   Google  Inc. should not have to remove an anti-Islamic film  from  its YouTube website because a woman complained that she was duped into performing in the film  that  depicted  the  Prophet  Mohammed  as a pedophile, a  U.S.  appeals  court  ruled  on Monday.  In a case widely followed for its potential impact on the entertainment industry, an 11-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said an injunction prohibiting Google from broadcasting the film should be lifted.  A three-judge panel had ordered Google to remove the controversial film "Innocence of Muslims." Billed as a trailer, it triggered anti-American sentiment among Muslims in Egypt, Libya and elsewhere in 2012.

Influenced the San Antonio Human Resources Management Association to eliminate CAIR  from  seminar  entitled  Understanding  Islam  in  the  Workplace.   Florida  Family Association  sent  out   an   email  alert  on  May 4, 2015  entitled  San  Antonio  Human Resources Management  Association  sponsors  CAIR  seminar   for   educational  certification  credit   entitled Understanding Islam in the Workplace.   The  email  alert asked Floridafamily.org subscribers to send emails that urged  San  Antonio Human Resources  Management  Association  officers  and  board members to abandon CAIR’s curriculum.  Thousands of people sent emails.  The San Antonio Human Resources Management Association (SAHRMA) quickly dropped CAIR from making the workshop presentation scheduled for May 12, 2015.  

Countered CAIR’s demands that a sheriff withdraw a law enforcement academy from a terror training seminar.  The sheriff stood his ground and did not cower to CAIR.  The Council on American Islamic Relations sent out a news release on October 28, 2015 entitled CAIR Asks NJ Sheriff to  Reject Training by Islamophobe.  CAIR’s news release called Walid Shoebat an Islamophobe and reported that their organization had asked several law enforcement agencies to abandon his seminar.  Walid Shoebat is an expert in counter terrorism.  He provides training to law enforcement agencies.  Florida  Family Association  launched an email campaign on October 29, 2015  to encourage Sheriff Michael Mastronardy and other law enforcement officials to stand their ground.   CAIR issued a news release   on   November  9,  2015   entitled   Islamophobe  Walid  Shoebat  Trains  New  Jersey   Law Enforcement which confirmed that the seminar was held.

Urged Seattle Mayor Ed Murray to stop pushing for Sharia mortgages.   Fox News reported on  July 22, 2015:  Seattle officials join push for Sharia compliant mortgages, loans .    A proposal in Seattle meant to increase homeownership among Muslims by offering financing compliant with strict Islamic  law -- known as Sharia -- is  gaining   ground  in  the latest  test  for  local  leaders  trying to accommodate diverse religious beliefs.   Some Islamic fatwa committees and Islamist regulators hold  that  Sharia  law  requires   that   Islamic   Financial   Institutions   (IFI)   pay   the   Islamic religious tax zakat.    Florida  Family Association prepared an email campaign which asked Mayor Ed Murray and Seattle  Council   Members:   “What   happens  when Islamic fatwa committees want Seattle financial institutions to pay the zakat on the profit they made from Sharia mortgages?  Can anyone rely on American  judges NOT to side with Islamists?   Do  these  financial  institutions know that part of the Zakat is  used to fund Jihad?  How many   of   these  financial  institutions’  non-Muslim  customers  will  appreciate  their bank helping to financially support Jihad?”  The issue has not been mentioned or reported online again since July 23, 2015.

Action  email  center  delivered  emails from more than 17,500 people urging the U.S. Eastern District of New York not to restrict the NYPD from surveilling Mosques and not to  ban  NYPD   educational   counter  terrorism  material  from  the   internet.  Florida Family  Association   launched   an  online  campaign  earlier  this  year to urge a court to make public safety a priority in a case where Mosques and Muslims are trying to stop the NYPD from surveilling mosques  and  censor public safety reports regarding Jihad.  Mohammad  Elshinawy, Asad Dandia, Masjid At-Taqwa, Masjid Al-Ansar, Muslims Giving Back and  Hamid  Raza  sued the City of New York in an attempt to force the New York Police Department to remove their report titled Radicalization in the West: The Home Grown Threat.   The lawsuit also sought to stop the New York Police Department from surveilling them and their mosques.   Raza et al v. City of New York et al  is pending in the U.S. Eastern District of New York.  FFA will continue to send out emails until the case is decided.

Urged  hoteliers  to  reconsider their hosting and future hosting of Council on American Islamic  Relations’  banquet   fundraisers especially  in  light  of  the organization’s agenda to  legalize  Sharia law in America.   Florida Family Association launched email campaigns that encouraged    1.  Marriott   to  stop hosting the Hamas linked CAIR national banquet at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington VA which occurred on October 17, 2015.  2.  The Embassy Suites Cleveland – Rockside, 5800 Rockside Woods Blvd., Independence, OH to stop hosting the CAIR Cleveland banquet which occurred on May 3, 2015.  3.   The Westchase Marriott,  2900  Briarpark  Drive, Houston, TX 77042 to stop hosting the CAIR Houston banquet which occurred on April 4, 2015.  

Exposed  Anti-Islamophobe  rally  against  American  patriots  in  Texas.  Florida  Family  Association   was   one  of  the  first organizations in the country to break the news about the  Garland  Independent School District (Texas) hosting a national Islamist rally to defeat Islamophobia  in  America.    The Curtis Culwell Center,  which  is  operated by the Garland Independent School District, hosted a conference  on  January  17,  2015 titled  “Stand with the Prophet in Honor and Respect.” The Sound Vision Foundation, “a not for profit organization serving Muslims” sponsored the event.  A movement to defend Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message. Salla Allahu Alaihe wa Sallam.  This benefit   will raise funds to  establish  a Strategic Communication Center for the Muslim community, which will develop  effective  responses  to anti-Islamic attacks, as well as to train young Muslims in media.  The purpose  of  this  event  was  to  rally  Muslims  against God loving American patriots who are rightfully concerned about the Islamist movement in the United States.  Radical New York Imam Imam Siraj Wahhaj who runs the Masjid At Taqwa  mosque was the keynote speaker.  Masjid At Taqwa and other mosques  and  Muslims  are  suing (Raza et al v. City of New York et al) to stop the New York Police Department from surveilling them and their mosques.

Countered  CAIR’s  demand  that  the  University of South Dakota Women and Gender Research Conference cancel the showing of the movie Honor Diaries.  The University of South Dakota Biennial Women and Gender  Research  Conference  showed  the  movie  Honor  Diaries despite pressure  from  Islamist  sympathizers  who  wanted  the  showing  cancelled.  Honor Diaries is an award-winning  documentary  that  exposes  the  systematic  Islamist  abuses  of women in Islamic honor-based societies  including   forced marriage, female   genital   mutilation,   and   limited right to education.  Florida Family Association sent out  an  email  alert on March  31,  2015 that encouraged people  to  send  emails  to  University  of  South  Dakota’s Women  and  Gender  Studies faculty and university officials   to   express   their   support   for Miglena  Sternadori’s  determination  to  show  the film.  The email also expressed concern regarding university faculty who wanted to censor the truth about honor abuse.  The movie was shown as planned.

Countered CAIR campaign to pressure Texas school district to force teacher to resign for distributing educational materials regarding Islam to his students.  The Lamar Consolidated Independent School District forced Foster High School teacher Dale Woolverton to resign because he distributed  factual  information to students regarding Islam that CAIR complained about.  The school district  forced  the  teacher  to  resign  within 24 hours without a thorough investigation. The Lamar Consolidated Independent School District issued a statement on April 14, 2015 that said in part “The District is still investigating the matter.”  CAIR filed the complaint on April 7, 2015.  Dale Woolverton resigned less than twenty four hours later on April 8, 2015.  Florida Family Association launched an email campaign that defended Dale Woolverton and urged his reinstatement.  Mr. Woolverton ultimately decided that he did not want to work for the school district again even if they offered to hire him back.

Countered Islamists, principally the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), who called on or pressured Governor Bobby Jindal, Senator Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush regarding   positions  or  people  they  chose  which  oppose  Islamization  in America.   Florida Family Association  launched  three  campaigns  to counter CAIR’s attack on Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush and Bobby Jindal.  

Confronted the FBI for grounding paid aircraft with banner that challenged Al Jazeera America advertiser.   The Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), pursuant to FBI orders, grounded the aircraft that Florida Family Association paid to pull a banner around MetLife Stadium on September 28, 2014.   The banner stated AIG SPONSORS JIHAD TV.   American International Group (AIG) is the largest company with the longest running advertising on Al Jazeera America.  The FAA lost the control tower audio recording of this act of censorship after receiving a Freedom of Information Act request.   The FBI repeatedly declined  to  provide  a  reason  for grounding the plane.  Florida Family Association paid the aircraft company to pull another banner which stated MERCK & CO SPONSORS JIHAD TV around MetLife  Stadium   on September 20, 2015.  Florida Family Association provided the date, time, flight pattern, airplane tail number, pilot name, aircraft company name and banner language to the FBI, New Jersey  State  Police and Joint Terrorism Task Force regarding.  Law enforcement did not interfere with the MERCK & CO SPONSORS JIHAD TV  banner flown on September 20, 2015.

Urged Clear Channel Outdoor to stop hosting Islamist billboards which stated “Muhammad believed in Peace, Social Justice and Women’s Rights.”  Clear Channel Outdoor turned  down  a  billboard  which  presented  the truth about Muhammad.  Pamela Geller asked Clear Channel  to  accept  a  counter  billboard but they declined.  Major media companies allowing Islamist political organizations   to   distort   the   facts   in    their advertising forums weakens the knowledge that all  Americans  need  to have on this important issue.  Clear   Channel   Outdoor’s denial of opposing billboards  implies that their company may be biased on this issue.   However, even if Clear Channel Outdoor accepted the opposing billboards the content of the ICNA billboards is still grossly distorted.  Florida  Family  Association  launched  an  online campaign that challenged Clear Channel Outdoor to rethink their policy.

Christianpost.org reports the following regarding Florida Family Association:  “Don't let the name deceive you. Florida Family Association is a national organization that harnesses online  citizen activism through its massive email list to change organizations through economic and public pressure. They urge companies not to advertise on the Islamic terror apologist network Al Jazeera,  remind  universities  to  support  free speech and not cancel films and speakers critical of Islamism, and hold the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) feet to the fire for their leaders past support for terrorism and saying Muslims are above the law of the land.”

The  Council on American Islamic Relations reports the following in their Islamophobia Report about Florida Family Association:  “The Florida Family Association, founded in 1987 by David Caton, has pressured companies and courts to  adhere  to  anti-Muslim  practices.  Despite  operating only in Florida, FFA has garnered national attention. FFA is part of the U.S. Islamophobia network's inner core.”
