A Texas court ruled that Shapiro did nothing wrong in questioning the motives of Ahmed "Clock Boy" Mohamed, a Muslim student who built a "clock" to look like a bomb, and was detained by police over school concerns that the bomb was real.
A Dallas County District Court judge dismissed the defamation lawsuit filed against Shapiro by Mohamed's father, Mohamed Mohamed (no relationship to Sirhan Sirhan) over Shapiro's comments about the September 2015 incident at MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas.
The little jihadist Ahmed Mohamed, a ninth-grader at the time, came to class with what he called an "invention," which was a disassembled clock that was sloppily reassembled in a pencil box.
The little tyke showed the contraption to his science teacher and was asked to put it away.
Later in the day, the clock began beeping in his English class and his teacher, worried that it looked like a bomb, took action. Mohamed was detained and questioned by police and briefly charged with possessing a hoax bomb, though the charge was later dismissed.
Mohamed Mohamed, Ahmed Mohamed's father, a politically active jihadist with ties to terrorist-sponsoring foreign regimes, took his kid on a world tour of Islamic jihad where he was photographed with wanted war criminal and Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.
Upon noting the father-son ties to Islamic jihad, the two scum-buns were invited to the White House by Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama, you may recall, tweeted support for Ahmed as police investigated the situation, before the outcome was known, supporting "Clock Boy" before supporting the school staff.
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an arm of the un-indicted co-conspirator Muslim Brotherhood in the Holy Land Foundation case, accused officials of Islamophobia, a term used to shut people up who see something and say something. In this case, it was Ben Shapiro, the Center for Security Policy, Glenn Beck and Fox News along with other news media investigated and discussed Mohamed's story and believed it to be an example of "civilization jihad" promoted by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Shapiro told Megyn Kelly formerly of Fox News, the incident "was a setup and . . . President Obama fell for it because it confirms a couple of his pre-stated biases against police and against people who he perceives to be Islamophobic."
"Within the first forty-eight hours it was clear that this was a bit of a setup and it was clear that the story didn't hold together," Shapiro said.
He went on to explain that Mohamed "took the guts out of an old clock, you can see people do it on YouTube. He literally took the guts out of an old clock, the wiring, and he put in inside of a pencil box and proceeded to bring that into the school and this is not the first family incident that has been like this. His sister had an incident in 2009 that was somewhat similar."
The little jihadist soon moved to Qatar after receiving a full scholarship to attend a school in Doha where he majored in Taqiyya. But Mohamed and his father Mohamed Mohamed made a special trip back to Texas where they hoped to scam some infidels out of a lot of money as they filed a $15 million federal lawsuit against the city of Irving, the school district, and MacArthur High School Principal Daniel Cummings.
Mohamed Mohamed also filed a defamation lawsuit against Ben Shapiro and other conservative commentators for having opinions that exposed their scam.
On Thursday, Shapiro tweeted the court order on his motion to dismiss the case, which was "well taken and should be and is in all respects granted."
But the real beauty of it all is that "Shapiro is entitled to recover his attorneys' fees, court costs, and other expenses in bringing his Motion to Dismiss and defending against Plaintiff's claims," the order read.
Kurt Schlichter, Shapiro's attorney told Townhall: "Ben Shapiro has always been a steadfast advocate of the First Amendment and there was never any doubt he was going to stand up for his right to speak freely. I'm very grateful that the state of Texas takes the First Amendment seriously, I only wish my own state of California would do the same, especially after the fiasco at Berkeley yesterday."
Schlichter was referring to the campus riots that occurred at UC Berkeley, when Milo Yiannopoulos was to speak there and his First Amendment rights were denied by a crowd of anarchists who destroyed property and ironically called him a fascist.
Thank you, Texas.
