Watch VIDEO: FOX 5 NY on AFDI’s New “Islamophobia?” Ad Campaign in NYC and California by Pamela Geller:

Hundreds of bus ads now going up in NYC and California. The message of truth is critical, now more than ever. CONTRIBUTE HERE. Do it.

More people are seeing this vital message.

“Another ad campaign with images of ISIS’ beheadings coming to NYC buses,” BY Jennifer Fermino, New York Daily News, November 17, 2014
Pro-Israel blogger Pamela Geller will launch ads Dec. 1 featuring a masked extremist with words from the Koran: ‘When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks.’ She said the $100,000 campaign was planned before the beheading of U.S. aid worker Peter Kassig, who was shown Sunday in a video released by ISIS…… continue reading

Our new ad campaign is designed to show the absurdity of the mainstream media focus on “Islamophobia” amid growing jihad violence worldwide.

The charge of “Islamophobia” is used to intimidate people into thinking there is something wrong with opposing jihad violence.

Our ads are designed to increased awareness of the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat, and put an end to the denial and willful ignorance about that threat, so that we can adopt effective counter-terror measures based on that realistic appraisal.

The Muslim groups that complain most loudly about “Islamophobia,” like Hamas-tied CAIR, have opposed every counter-terror program that has ever been proposed or implemented.

The ad lists some of the recent victims of jihad. Those people and preventing others from joining them should be our focus, not the fictional “backlash against Muslims” upon which the media always focuses.

We hope to raise awareness about the need for Muslims in the US not just to denounce ISIS, but to teach young Muslims why this understanding of Islam is wrong and must be rejected.

If the Islamic State is not Islamic, what is it? How did this misunderstanding of Islam become so widespread? Why are so many more US and UK Muslims than ever joined al Qaeda joining the Islamic State?

And while Muslims in the US condemn the Islamic State, where are they teaching against the ideology that gave rise to it?

Right now, nothing is being done to stop jihad recruiting in US mosques, even as several hundred young Muslims from the US have gone to wage jihad for the Islamic State.

If the moderates really reject extremism, let them show it by instituting genuine programs to teach against the jihadic doctrine.

EXHALE

capitol_building_dark_clouds_APBreitbart, by Pamela Geller:

It’s quite something, but I have been receiving more “congratulatory” emails from my international readers than my American readers (and I have heard from a great many Americans). But clearly it’s not just Americans who care what happens in our elections — it’s freedom-loving peoples all over the world. On Tuesday night, the world collectively exhaled… and celebrated.

They rejoiced in knowing that America wasn’t over — that the same country that elected Barack Obama in the White House not once, but twice, was not so far gone that it couldn’t right that wrong and right the ship. People all over the world look to America as the moral force for good in the world. And that hope had been dashed…until last night.

The lights on the “the shining city on the hill” shone brightly.

We won and we won big. Huge. And it is even bigger than that knowing what we know about the leftwing election fraud on voter rolls and the ghost vote.

Last night, the American people sent a very clear, very loud message to President Obama. Stop. The American people said STOP, and if you don’t, our elected officials will do everything we empower them to do to stop you from further destroying this country. 

Knowing the contempt Obama has for us, he has no intention of heeding our warnings and will continue on his jihad against freedom, the individual, American hegemony, and our allies in the world.

But America has withdrawn our sanction.

The Democrats lost big, and their divisive, subversive supporters lost bigger. Hamas-CAIR and their “Muslim caucus” to vote as one bloc for their Democrat quisling candidates failed. As did those candidates who received their foul money.

The left’s “war on women” myth epically failed, especially in light of the real war on women — in the Muslim world. The slave markets, the buying and selling of non-Muslim women — the misogyny inherent in the sharia.

Their immigration rout failed. Particularly now, when national security has become the top issue and terrorists are easily penetrating our porous borders. Moms and dads have finally woken up to the jihad threat, and they got out the vote.

The jobless millennials, as brainwashed as they are, can’t pay the rent with hope and change. The millennials didn’t get out the vote for Obama.

Millions of Americans, like me, who had their health insurance cancelled and now live uninsured got out the vote.

Obama hoped to get out the anti-semitic vote. Obama and his administration made vicious, repeated attacks on Israel just days before the election. American support for Israel has never been so high. Friends of Israel got out the vote.

Republicans didn’t vote last night. Americans voted for America.

The Democrats will use these two years to get ready for 2016. They will spend the next two years blaming the Republicans for what’s here and what’s coming — the poison fruit of Obama’s catastrophic domestic and foreign policies. But we can out-maneuver them. 

We have to.

This is the beginning of a very great fight. We can and must seize the day. We must take a deep breath, take the long view, have a plan and stick to it — as one.

Obama’s immigration putsch must be stopped (if he uses one of his dictatorial edicts, we can kill funding).

Obamacare should be dismantled piece by piece.

Congress must stand in the way of Obama allowing Iran to complete its nuclear weapons policy.

Jihad and Islam must be re-introduced to our counter terror programs. It was exactly five years ago that Fort Hood jihadi Major Hasan slaughtered 13 of our soldiers in Texas, screaming allahu akbar. Obama said it was workplace violence and refused to designate it a terror attack.

Energy, energy, energy. Pass the Keystone pipeline. Get off foreign oil. Stop funding the jihad.

The Republicans must work together to defeat the single greatest threat to our nation’s security and well being: Obama and his quisling administration.

It will be a brutal two years. Obama will continue to pursue the disastrous plans for us  — Iranian nukes, immigration, Obamacare, etc. But we have turned the corner. The fight is on. The Republicans cannot squander this opportunity. We must be unified and resolute — not “inherently resolute” (the ridiculous moniker of Obama’s incoherent policy in Iraq), but consciously and deliberately resolute.

It. is. on.

E Pluribus Unum.

She is also a regular columnist for World Net Daily, the American Thinker, Breitbart.com and other publications.

Geller’s activism on behalf of human rights has won international notice. She has led awareness campaigns in U.S., Europe, and Israel on behalf of the victims and potential victims of honor killing, and has worked for human rights of apostates from Islam and freedom of speech. She has placed ads nationwide on buses, taxicabs, billboards, and in subway stations, calling attention to the plight of victims of Sharia and countering the deceptive and misleading ad campaigns of the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other Islamic supremacist groups.

Pamela Geller has been the subject of a profile on 60 Minutes, and of cover stories in the Sunday New York Times Metro section and the UK’s Independent. The Times also published an in-depth interview with her. She has made appearances on NBC Nightly News, ABC, CNN, AP, Reuters, the Sean Hannity Show, the Bill O’Reilly Show, Red Eye, Geraldo, the Mike Huckabee show, and other shows on the Fox News channel. She has been featured in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Village Voice, the Daily Mail and the Telegraph. Geller has been a featured speaker at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s Restoration Weekend and at numerous Tea Party and pro-freedom events across the nation.

Pamela Geller has broken numerous important stories — notably the questionable and illegal foreign sources of some of the financing of the Obama campaign, the anti-Semitic posts on Obama’s website, Obama’s political organizing in public school classrooms, ACORN’s destruction of Republican voter registrations, and many more, but perhaps she is best known for her leadership of the nationwide campaign against the Ground Zero mosque.

NEW AFDI Ad Campaign “Truth About CAIR” Hits NYC Subway Platforms

environmentCAIRadNYCSubway-1024x768By Pamela Geller:

In a new ad campaign that just hit NYC subway platforms, we’re calling out the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

We’re rolling out this campaign in as many cities as we can. Please CONTRIBUTE HERE.

CAIRdiorama32-1024x710The leading Muslim Brotherhood-tied organization in America has deceived the media, cultural and political elites in America for years, to the great peril of the American people. Despite the overwhelming evidence presented in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history, the Holy Land foundation trial, the sharia-complaint media has continued to advance Hamas-CAIR’s supremacist agenda, with willing help from all too many law enforcement and government officials.

CAIR’s influence is vast, and growing all the time. Just recently they got ABC Family to drop its projected show Alice In Arabia, solely because it contained some dramatization of the all-too-common phenomenon of child kidnapping by Muslim relatives. For years now, they have prevailed upon Hollywood to downplay or even change the identity of celluloid villains, so that Muslims are never portrayed negatively in films (thus the Muslim terrorists in the novel The Sum of All Fears became neo-Nazis in the movie).

CAIR pressured Brandeis University to rescind an honorary degree it had planned to award to human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali. It regularly pressures (and usually succeeds) in getting any and every counter-jihad speaker canceled from events. Recently it even tried to bribe the sheriff of Culpepper County, Virginia with $15,000 to get him to cancel a counter-terror training seminar.

Because of this kind of activity, Hamas-CAIR should be shunned by all decent people. But instead, this unsavory gang of thugs is stronger than ever. JP Morgan and ABC are sponsoring their annual banquet this year. And the general silence about their terror-linked background has enabled them to infiltrate the highest levels of the political and cultural spheres.

That’s why my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), is now unveiling a new ad campaign that tells the truth about this Islamic supremacist hate group.

Now more than ever, as CAIR’s influence grows in the media and government, this ad campaign is necessary to raise awareness among the public, to protect people from being taken in by this unsavory and unscrupulous group.

The ad depicts several CAIR officials who have been arrested and convicted of terror-related crimes. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department during the trial of the Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation.

CAIR has a long record of duplicity and deception. Although it has received millions of dollars in donations from foreign Islamic entities, it has not registered as a foreign agent as required by the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), despite spreading Islamic supremacist propaganda within the United States.

Although it presents itself as a civil rights group, CAIR actually has numerous links to Islamic supremacist and jihad groups. CAIR founders Omar Ahmad and Niwad Awad (who still serves as CAIR’s executive director), were present at a Hamas planning meeting in Philadelphia in 1993 where they and other Hamas operatives conspired to raise funds for Hamas and to promote jihad in the Middle East. CAIR has steadfastly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups.

AFDI “Islamic Jew-Hatred” Bus Ads Hit DC Streets!

afdi-islamic-jew-hatred1By Pamela Geller, May 14,2014:

Our AFDI bus ads hit the streets today. Truth is beauty, and these ads are truly beautiful.

We want to take this national — CONTRIBUTE HERE.

The DC Metro transit authority made multiple demands for the substantiation of every claim in our ads before they would accept the ad, and I, of course, happily provided that substantiation. The libelous American Muslims for Palestine antisemitic ad (below) did not have to provide substantiation. The MTA had no problem with their antisemitism. And you cannot provide evidence of a smear and a bigoted lie. But it is proof of the AMP’s hate.

Our ads are in response to the vicious Jew-hating ads that American Muslims for Palestine unleashed on  Washington, DC Metro buses last month. And might I add, had we not sued and won in NYC and DC for violating our First Amendment rights when they tried to refuse our previous ads, our ads might never have gone up. Those were major victories in the war on free speech. These ad campaigns are critical to informing the public of the truth. The disinformation and Islamic propaganda is piled so high and so thick from the media, academia, and the entertainment industry, there is a blacklist on truth tellers. This is how we leapfrog over the leftist/islamic machine.  Excelsior!

tax-ad-pic2-e1400137559840Uncle Sam with the Star of David. Nuts. Think about the billions we are giving to Muslim Brotherhood jihadists in Egypt and Libya, Gaza, Judea and Samaria, the Taliban in Afghanistan, etc. A flag of jihad would be more appropriate.

The AMP is run by Dr. Hatem Bazian. Hatem Bazian is the Berkeley College who equated the Boston jihad bombings with “Islamophobia.”

“A requirement of Bazian’s class, entitled De-Constructing Islamophobia and History of Otherness, is for students to get reactions from “people of color” on ads critical of radical Islam placed by Pamela Geller, author of the blog Atlas Shrugs.”

Professor Hatem Bazian required his students to tweet weekly on Islamophobia (more on that here). Other names you will find associated with this group are:
Rashid Khalidi (recently and rightly banned from speaking at the Ramaz School in NYC)
Sheikh Jamal Said
Imam Ziad Shakir (notorious radical cleric)
Rafeeq Jaber
Dr. Norman Finkelstein
Max Blumenthal (self loathing anti-semite)

This is a nasty Hamas-supporting group.

 

Darryll Issa Shows Ignorance of Islam in Recent Donnelly-Kashkari Spat Over Sharia

darrell-issa-office-ap

Breitbart, By Pamela Geller, May 9, 2014:

California State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, who is running for governor, recently pointed out that his rival Neel Kashkari “supported the United States submitting to the Islamic, Shariah banking code in 2008 when he ran TARP.”

The charge was true, but that didn’t stop the influential Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chair, from furiously denouncing not Kashkari, but Donnelly – illustrating again what’s wrong with the right.

Issa raged: “There is no place in any public discussion for this type of hateful and ignorant garbage. As far as I’m concerned, this type of stupidity disqualifies Donnelly from being fit to hold any office, anywhere. Donnelly is no longer a viable option for California voters… There is no place in the Republican Party or in this race for someone like Tim Donnelly.”

Donnelly duly apologized. But he shouldn’t have. He was right. Did Darryll Issa even look into the charge? Or did he knee-jerk smear Donnelly? And who died and made Issa king of the Republican Party? Who is this uninformed loudmouth to say who is or isn’t welcomed into the Republican Party? Like Brody said in Jaws, we need a bigger boat. If every time someone touches the third rail – jihad and sharia – they get burned and turned on, then the Republicans are going the way of the Whigs.

It’s Issa who should be taken to the woodshed, not Donnelly. What was hateful wasn’t Donnelly’s statement but Issa’s response. What is ignorant is Issa’s complete lack of knowledge of sharia, TARP, and the taxpayer-funded sharia programs. Why should the American taxpayer legitimize and institutionalize the Sharia? Sharia finance is the pernicious effort to force the banking industry to conform to Islamic law. Sharia banking finances Islamic terror through zakat (Islamic almsgiving) and would destroy whole sectors of the American economy, as it prohibits investment in whole industries, including pork, alcohol, tobacco, and some forms of entertainment.

Shariah Finance Watch explains that sharia-compliant finance “as monitored by paid Shariah law advisors to U.S. banking institutions must ‘purify’ certain return on investment (ROI) dollars that do not meet Shariah law standards. This money must be donated to Islamic charities – including some that promote Jihad and support suicide bombing. Investment disclosures state that these profits can be as high as 6% of profits of investments.”

That’s what Kashkari was selling when he spoke at a Treasury Department conference in 2008 that was intended to “inform the policy community about Islamic financial services, which are an increasingly important part of the global financial industry.” The conference’s stated purpose was to “provide government policymakers information about Islamic finance. The presentation materials from the conference discussed topics such as the source of Islamic finance, how Islamic finance works, and the market factors that caused its growth.”

The introduction of sharia finance in the U.S. has support at the highest levels. A recent lawsuit brought to light the fact that $153 million in taxpayer money has been spent on sharia-compliant finance. David Yerushalmi of the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC), who represented the anti-sharia plaintiff in that lawsuit, told me:

I take no position about what kind of governor Mr. Kashkari would make or indeed what kind of conservative bona fides he has in his brief. What I can say is that the U.S. Treasury under President Bush, during Mr. Kashkari’s deep involvement in TARP, actively promoted Sharia-compliant finance when it knew very well that this vehicle was being used not only to promote jihad, but also to effectively defraud Western investors by failing to disclose the Black Box that is Sharia. Mr. Kashkari might claim he was simply naive about the insidious and invidious nature of Sharia. That naiveté, though, becomes part of his resume for governor. But one thing I can say with absolute certainty: the Treasury Department he served knew exactly what it was doing. We uncovered documents during discovery where we learned that the Treasury was not merely promoting Sharia-compliant finance through its acquisition of AIG, but that it had been promoting Sharia as an international financing model leading up to the government’s takeover of AIG.

Confirming that is a statement from Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Robert Kimmitt, who said around the same time that this conference was held that “the U.S. government is currently studying the salient features of Islamic banking to ascertain how far it could be useful in fighting the ongoing world economic crisis.”

Nevertheless, Kashkari downplayed his involvement in the conference: “They were looking for a senior Treasury official to give the opening remarks at this conference, and I happened to be scheduled to be in the office that day.” He did acknowledge, however, that “these sorts of conferences were put on to help promote an understanding of how you can still have free market principles and open economics even in Islamic countries.” Really? Where? In which Islamic countries? His claim is false on its face.

Issa’s savage attack on Donnelly is yet another indication of how naïve and complacent establishment Republicans are about the threat of jihad and Islamic supremacism. Issa said this on Bill Maher’s show back in 2007:

One of the problems that we have as Americans in my opinion having traveled the region a little bit, is that we try to say Muslims as though it was one place. If you go to the Palestinian territories the one thing you’ll see is that for over 1000 years, Christians and Muslims have lived side-by-side… So we can talk about radical Islam, but we see no evidence out of it there. You go to Ethiopia, [where] you have some of the oldest Christians in the world and Muslims. They have a lot of problems in Ethiopia, we’ll endless[ly talk] about the problems in Ethiopia, except they look down on Somalia for their problems, but there is no question that religious tolerance of the two living side by side has not been about extremism, ‘convert or you’ll die.’

“No evidence” of “radical Islam” in the Palestinian territories? What is he smoking? There are churches in those areas because under Muslim rule the Christians were subjugated dhimmis, denied basic rights and paying jizya (poll tax) to the Islamic state. The Muslims let them live because they constituted their source of revenue for the state. That’s tolerance?

Clearly Darrell Issa knows nothing about Islam, sharia, or Islamic history.

In 2011, Issa co-sponsored the Hezbollah Anti-Terrorism Act (HATA), a bill to cut aid to the Hezbollah-led Lebanese government. However, he has also denounced “Israel’s wanton violation of Lebanese territory and its somewhat failed attempt to defeat Hezbollah.” He has even said, “You can’t end an idea or a terrorist organization by guns alone.” So does Issa suggest we roast marshmallows with Boko Haram? Al-Shabaab? Hamas?

Darrell Issa is the latest illustration of what’s wrong with the Republican Party and of our increasingly serious need for a genuine opposition party in Washington.

American Muslims for Palestine Anti-Israel Ads Run on DC Buses

jew-hate-revised-Geller Breitbart, Apr 9,2014,  by PAMELA GELLER:

They are at it again. But so are we.

A new and viciously anti-Israel ad is running on Washington, DC buses, reading “We’re Sweating April 15 So Israelis Don’t Have To! Stop US Aid to Israel’s Occupation” and featuring a grim-looking Uncle Sam waving an Israeli flag. American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) is the sponsor of this Jew-hating ad, which evokes the ugly anti-Semitic stereotypes in which Jew-haters have long trafficked.

This is part of a systematic campaign by many different Islamic and leftist groups to dehumanize and demonize the Jewish state. This vicious propaganda is running in various forms across the country, unchallenged even by pro-Israel groups that ought to be at the forefront of this battle.

The AMP is run by Dr. Hatem Bazian, a University of California-Berkeley professor who equated the Boston jihad bombings with “Islamophobia.”

How bad has leftist academia become? Bazian teaches a course entitled “De-Constructing Islamophobia and History of Otherness.” One requirement of this class is for students to collect reactions from “people of color” to my ads criticizing jihad terrorism and Islamic supremacism.

Bazian also required his students to tweet weekly on Islamophobia. And he is not the only Islamic supremacist associated with the AMP. Others include Columbia UniversityProfessor Rashid Khalidi, who has called Israel a “racist” state that is “basically an apartheid system in creation”; Imam Ziad Shakir, who has praised the jihad terror group Hamas; Rafeeq Jaber, a strong supporter of the jihad terror group Hizballah; Norman Finkelstein, who has called Zionists “basically Nazis with beards and black hats”; and Max Blumenthal, who has recently published a book-length screed defaming Israel and retailing Palestinian jihad propaganda.

For years, AMP’s ads have run unchallenged. But this time, we were there. Their lies did not stand as the only word. We are fighting back. My organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), has submitted a truth-telling ad to run on the same bus line, on the same city streets, and in the same venues as the Islamic Jew-hatred ad.

Our ad features of photo of Adolf Hitler and his staunch ally, the leader of the Muslim world, Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem, who lived in Berlin during World War II and raised up a division of Bosnian Muslims for the Waffen SS. The ad reads: “Islamic Jew-Hatred: It’s In the Quran. Two-Thirds of All US Aid Goes to Islamic Countries. Stop Racism. End All Aid to Islamic Countries.”

Our organization receives enormous abuse and defamation for responding to these disgusting lies. Who can forget the media sympathizing with CNN “journalist” Mona Eltahawy when she physically destroyed one of our ads and attacked an innocent bystander for trying to protect it?

Increasingly, we see that the more you speak the truth, the uglier the enemy’s response becomes–which of course makes us smile. And Washington Metro demanded that I provide substantiation for every claim in this ad. And this is nothing new. Every time I submit an ad, I have to provide evidence of everything I am asserting. I’d like to know if the AMP is held to the same standard. How would they possibly provide evidence for their ad–show photos of Americans sweating while Israelis luxuriated in ease? Their ad is an outrageous libel–well-distributed and well-worn.

Now more than ever, we have to educate the American people. And we are getting it done. AFDI fights the propaganda putsch of the AMP and other leftist and Islamic supremacist groups by going on the offense and taking the message to the people. We’re bringing the truth about Israel, the global jihad against free people, and Islamic supremacism directly to the people. We force a media discussion of the grim realities of jihad and Sharia that they usually sweep under the rug.

Now more than ever, when voices and work like ours are increasingly silenced, we have to be bolder and go on the offense.

THE EFFECTS OF MASS MUSLIM IMMIGRATION

UK-Muslim-Prayer-ReutersBy Pamela Geller:

It was reported Monday that “almost 10 per cent of children under five years old in England and Wales come from a Muslim family, according to 2011 UK Government census information.”

The report continued, “Of the 3.5 million children aged less than five, 320,000 were listed as Muslim. By comparison, Christians make up 43 per cent of those aged under five.”

What is the problem with that? The enemedia would tell you that anyone who thinks this is something to be concerned about is a racist. But this is not really a question of race at all; it’s a question of assimilation. Hindus, Buddhists, South Asians, Africans–all kinds of people have come to the U.K. and the U.S. and had little trouble adapting to their new country. But Muslims are the first group to come as immigrants to the West determined to replace Western government and social structures with Islamic ones. Millions of Muslims come to Western countries with a ready-made model of society and government (sharia) which they believe to be superior to what we have here, and they work to institute it.

What happens to a country when its imports a colonizer force or hostile invader? In Dr. Peter Hammond’s book, Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat, he explains that as Muslim populations grow, so do demands for special accommodation to Sharia. When Muslims number less than two percent of the population, as they do in the U.S. now, they’re generally peaceful and tolerant. As the Muslim population grows, however, so do the demands (as we’re seeing now): for halal meat, Sharia courts, and more.

As the Muslim population grows, so does violent intimidation and lawlessness–an example being the Sharia-ruled areas all over Europe, where the governing authorities have essentially lost control. After Muslim populations reach 20%, we see rioting, jihad militias, church burnings, and worse–and once it reaches 40%, there are massacres and frequent jihad terror attacks, as we have seen in recent years in Bosnia, Chad, and Lebanon.

Pamela Geller On The Islamization of America in 2013

islam-america-afpBy Pamela Geller:

Since I wrote my book Stop the Islamization of America and established the Stop Islamization of America initiative of my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), we have seen increasing accommodation and submission to Islam in the United States. This past year was a particularly good year for Islamic supremacists, who are working furiously in this country to impose Sharia (Islamic law) — and in particular, the blasphemy laws under the Sharia.

The Islamic supremacist approach is stealthier here in the States than it is in Europe, where we see no-go zones, mass car burnings, etc., because Europe currently has a much bigger Muslim population than the U.S. does. More on Muslim immigration here.

That kind of aggression is in our future, for nothing is being done to prevent its coming here. The few of us who dare to speak against Sharia and jihad are blacklisted from the mainstream media’s major newspaper and broadcast outlets. Trimmers (those who soften the message about Islam or speak of “Islamism,” an artificial word making a distinction without a difference) and Islamic apologists are dusted off and trotted out to make some inane comment whenever the mainstream media cannot avoid covering a jihad news story (such as the Boston Marathon jihad bombing). But the effective true voices against Islamization, such as myself, Robert Spencer, Wafa Sultan, and Ibn Warraq are rarely seen these days.

It’s never been as bad as it is now, and we have never been proven so right as we were in 2013. In the U.S., in a survey released at the end of 2012, almost half of the Muslims in America said that they thought parodies of Muhammad should be subject to criminal prosecution. One in eight thought that insulting Islam should be a death penalty offense. Forty percent said that they shouldn’t have to obey U.S. laws, but should be subject only to Islamic law.

These findings should have come as no surprise; they weren’t much different from those of a May 2013 survey of Muslims worldwide. The survey showed that the harshest Sharia punishments enjoy broad support among Muslims the world over: “72% of Indonesian Muslims, 84% of Pakistani Muslims, 82% of Bengladeshi Muslims, 74% of Egyptian Muslims, and 71% of Nigerian Muslims supported making Sharia the official state law of their respective societies.” 85% of Muslims in Pakistan, 81% in Afghanistan, and 70% in Egypt supported the most brutal aspects of Sharia, such as amputating the hands of thieves. 86% of Muslims in Pakistan, 84% in Afghanistan, and 80% in Egypt supported stoning for adultery. 75% in Pakistan, 79% in Afghanistan, and 88% in Egypt favored executing those who leave Islam. “91% of Iraqi Muslims and 99% of Afghan Muslims supported making Sharia the official state law of their respective societies.”

And in America, wherever Islamic law and American law conflict, it is increasingly American law that gives way.

Where’s outrage against this type of gay oppression?

download (46)WND, By Pamela Geller:

All this ballyhoo and hullabaloo about the “Duck Commander” and his biblical reference – why?

The blowback and national firestorm raging in the wake of the remarks by the patriarch of “Duck Dynasty” is a stunning indictment of left-wing hypocrisy. The visceral response and resultant leftist temper tantrum gives us a revealing look behind the left’s mask of intolerant tolerance and the true objective of its “pro-gay” agenda.

People are free to think what they want. It’s when you torture, beat, hang or burn gay people alive – that’s the line in the sand, that’s real “homophobia.” Where’s the A&E special on the Muslim oppression of gays under the Shariah? Where is the outrage about that oppression from CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, etc.? Where is the worldwide outrage of the vicious anti-gay Shariah?

Tell A&E to apologize to Duck Commander. Sign the petition here and WND will deliver it to A&E!

Just as the Matthew Shepard case had nothing to do with homophobia, the controversy over plucky duck patriarch Phil Robertson has nothing to do with gay rights. Had a left-wing comic or actor made such remarks (and they have), it would have been water off a duck’s back. But the ducky patriarch cited the Bible, and that thar’s fighting words.

These vicious attacks using false narratives are very effective. Matthew Shepard was brutally murdered in Wyoming. His killing became the icon of gay hate and the impetus behind the anti-constitutional “hate-crime” legislation. The fallacious tale of Mathew Shepard resulted in the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009, which, according to the Justice Department, “provides funding and technical assistance to state, local, and tribal jurisdictions to help them to more effectively investigate and prosecute hate crimes.”

All crime is hate – criminalizing the thought behind it was a fatal line to cross. Hate-speech laws would inevitably follow hate-crime legislation. The fact is, Matthew Shepard was murdered by his gay lover in a meth deal gone bad. Shepard’s sexual preference “certainly wasn’t the motive in the homicide,” investigative journalist Stephen Jimenez quotes police investigator Ben Fritzen in his blockbuster book, “The Book of Matt.” “What it came down to really is drugs and money,” said Jimenez, who is also gay.

Passing thought crime laws based on a lie is instrumental to the left’s totalitarian war on freedom of conscience and freedom of speech, and consistent with the laws of the Shariah.

The feathers were flying in the wake of the “Duck Dynasty” patriarch’s obvious embrace of Christianity and the show’s popularity. “Duck Dynasty” is the highest rated show on cable. This flew in the face of the left’s successful war on Christianity. They see this as an all-out assault – hence the vicious blowback against Phil Robertson after his remarks.

This is an attack on Christianity, not on “homophobia.”

If the left really cared about “homophobia,” there would be leftist marches in the streets against the brutal oppression of gays under the Shariah. There would be outcries and condemnation of the torture, hanging and murder of gays in Muslim societies. Muslim anti-gay crime would be vigorously prosecuted in the United States, but that is hardly the case. Just the opposite, in fact. In 2010, Muslim gangs were targeting gays in San Francisco and shooting them in the face with BB guns, while filming the attacks. The response from law enforcement in the gay mecca of America was to cover it up.

Where was the pushback? Where was the outcry from the LGBT community about the Shariah mobs and the subsequent cover-up by the media and law enforcement? What if a non-Muslim had shot a Muslim in the face with a BB gun just because he was Muslim? Do you think that the story would have sunk as quickly as this Muslim targeting of gays in San Francisco did? We would still be hearing about it from Eric Holder and Obama more than three years later.

Just last week, a Muslim cleric in India issued a fatwa against gays, saying that “a person may be burnt alive, pushed from a high wall or be beaten publicly with stones if he indulges” in homosexual activity.

Also last week, Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) was named to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Yet Yusuf Islam has said that material that’s favorable to homosexuality in school curricula is designed by people who want to “feast off the innocence of our children for their own abominable sexual appetites.” That’s far stronger than what Phil Robertson said – yet A&E drops him from the show while Yusuf goes into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Gay organizations in America have said nothing about Yusuf Islam, but they loudly condemned my ad campaign highlighting Muslim oppression of gays under the Shariah. The visceral response of the San Francisco City Council, the Human Rights CommissionSFHRC head Theresa Sparks and the enemedia to our “Gays under the Shariah” ad campaign was obscene proof of leftist hypocrisy. They called my ads hate when I merely quoted Muslim political leaders, spiritual leaders and cultural voices in the Muslim community who incited hatred and violence in their vicious anti-gay diatribes, and called for their torture and their execution.

That’s hypocrisy – as is their persecution of Phil Robertson.

Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer speak out, despite efforts to silence them

By David Solway:

Recently I attended a symposium featuring the notable conservative writers and anti-Jihadists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer. Titled “The Dangers of Islamic Extremism and Western Complacency,” the symposium was held at the Toronto Hilton and hosted by the Jewish Defense League (JDL). (Event video available here.) Earlier on, the Islamic organization CAIR-CAN, now rebadged as the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), had sent a brash and menacing letter to the Hilton attempting to intimidate it into annulling the event. The letter was courageously ignored by hotel management, and the event took place as advertised. I say “courageously” since the previous May a similar lecture by Geller, slated for the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue in Toronto, was summarily cancelled by the presiding rabbi, Mendel Kaplan, who succumbed to the strong-arm tactics of the diversity, equity and inclusion bureau of the York Regional Police. The bureau’s director, Inspector Ricky Veerappan, who also happens to be a Muslim, threatened Kaplan with the loss of his police chaplaincy if he went ahead with the Geller presentation, and the good rabbi buckled. I suspect that his late Chabad colleague Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg, butchered by Islamic terrorists in Mumbai on November 26, 2008, would have shown rather more backbone.

As I strolled about the premises during the afternoon, I noticed that our national broadcaster, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), was conspicuously present, unloading equipment from several vans under the supervision of a youngish woman brandishing a microphone. As I had previously worked for the Mother Corp in music and public affairs, I decided to engage her in conversation under the aspect of an informal chat between fellow professionals. She was there, I learned, to cover a press conference to be held that afternoon by the NCCM protesting the Geller-Spencer symposium scheduled for later that evening. Naturally, the Geller-Spencer talk was not on her agenda. It did not take long for me to discover that she knew absolutely nothing about the Muslim Brotherhood affiliations of the CAIR group, even less about the Muslim Brotherhood, and less than that about Islamic terrorism, the Koran, the Hadith, and the inflammatory statements of various Muslim-Canadian imams advocating stoning for adultery, wife beating, gay bashing, and Sharia law in general.

When I quoted her chapter and verse from the Koran mandating the killing, mutilation and suppression of infidels, she grew distinctly uncomfortable. When I mentioned the large al-Quds demonstrationjust this August in a park near the Ontario parliament in Toronto, flying the Hezbollah flag and calling for the murder of Jews (which, incidentally, was not covered by the mainstream media), she fidgeted and said, “I’m sorry, sir, what you’re saying sounds like hate speech.” When I informed her that, during last year’s al-Quds demonstration, two arrests were made — of ordinary Canadian citizens in Queen’s Park, which is a public space, one man walking his dog (anathema to Muslims) and the other carrying an Israeli flag (also anathema to Muslims), while odious Islamic chants and placards inciting death to Jews and Israelis were tacitly sanctioned — I was once again accused of propagating hate speech.

At first I was stunned into silence. In rehearsing the explicitly violent passages from the Koran, followed to this day by Islamic terrorists, and bringing her attention to the homicidal declarations of Muslim assemblies, I was somehow, in a bizarre twist of plain logic, guilty of defamation. I knew that what I was confronting was something akin to a medical condition common to the liberal intelligentsia, a pathological inability to parse reality — or worse, an ideological lobotomy identical to the cortical paralysis of our own Supreme Court which, in a rulingof February 27, 2013, deposed that truth is no defense in the context of giving possible offense. Telling the truth is now understood as another form of hate speech, which means that one is no longer permitted to hate what is manifestly hateful. The corollary of this demented attitude is that one is permitted and even encouraged to lie with impunity, despite volumes of countervailing evidence, for example: Islam is a religion of peace, Israel is an apartheid state, the climate is warming owing to anthropogenic tampering and “climate deniers” are essentially perpetrating a “hate crime,” conservatism is a brand of fascism, and so on, which prevarications, in another grotesque distortion of simple consistency, are not considered hateful.

AFDI and 9/11 Parents & Families of Firefighters & WTC Victims to hold Memorial and Press Conference at Ground Zero on 9/11

6a00d8341c60bf53ef01901eea6c57970b-500wi

Anyone and everyone should be with us at Ground Zero on 911. It is a national day of grieving and remembrance. Don’t let the enemy co-opt this day. Be there. – Pamela Geller

Bloomberg:

NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ – The human rights organization the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and 9/11 Parents & Families of Firefighters & WTC Victims are holding a joint press conference and memorial service at Ground Zero in New York City on September 11, 2013, the twelfth anniversary of the 9/11 jihad terror attacks.

The memorial and press conference will begin at 1PM at the southwest corner of Zucotti Park, at Church and Cedar streets in lower Manhattan.

The press conference will be hosted by AFDI’s ExecutivePamela Geller and Associate Director Robert Spencer. Featured speakers will be Sally Regenhard and Rosaleen Talon of 9/11 Parents & Families of Firefighters & WTC Victims.

Sally and Sgt. Al Regenhard, a retired NYPD officer and U.S. Marine Corps veteran, are the parents of firefighter Christian Regenhard, also a Marine veteran, who was killed on 9/11.

Rosaleen Tallon is the sister of firefighter Sean Tallon, who was also killed in the World Trade Center on 9/11.

Geller said in a statement: “The Million Muslim March on 9/11 in Washington is an attempt to obscure the reality of what happened on 9/11, portray Muslims as victims, and intimidate government and law enforcement officials into ending surveillance of suspected jihadists. Our memorial and press conference puts the focus back where it should be: on the victims of 9/11, and our need to be vigilant in the face of the ongoing jihad threat.”

The press conference will advocate for the honorable and respectful interment of unidentified 9/11 human remains at Ground Zero not inside the Museum, as planned. Nearly a decade ago, 9/11 families were promised in writing by the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) in 2003 that these remains would be located in a “separate and distinct repository separate from any museum or visitor center.” But city officials and the Museum directors reneged on that promise, and plan to place 9,000 unidentified remains 70 feet (seven stories) below ground where their relatives will be charged $25 admission to visit.

Regenhard said: “The ‘pay to grieve’ 9/11 museum is a national disgrace. 9/11 family members never wanted a billion-dollar money pit. All we hoped for was a simple, uplifting, honorable and patriotic memorial for all who were lost that terrible September day. Instead, those who want to pay their respects will have to pay Bloomberg & Co.”

The press conference will also address the non-patriotic theme of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, including the absence of American flags on the site (there is only one flag at the site, and that one was originally put up by construction workers and then moved to the edge of the site where it can barely be seen at all). This is consistent with the initial rejection by National September 11 Memorial and Museum creative director Michael Shulan’s initial rejection of the iconic flag-raising photo in the Museum, complaining that it was “too rah-rah American.”

Press conference speakers will also note the fact that the photos of the 9/11 jihad terrorists, plus their martyrdom quotes, will be prominently displayed in the Museum, while information on the victims will be in a kiosk, much less prominently displayed. The victims’ photos will be twelve feet above the floor on one wall (3,000-plus photos), while those of the 19 jihadis will have their own wall, with their murderous statements and artifacts at eye level.

Geller concluded: “We will be calling upon the federal government to take over the administration of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. It should be a national museum. 9/11 family members should not have to pay $25 to visit the remains of 9,000 victims deep underground.”

AFDI stands for:

  • The freedom of speech as opposed to Islamic prohibitions of “blasphemy” and “slander,” which are used effectively to quash honest discussion of jihad and Islamic supremacism;
  • The freedom of conscience as opposed to the Islamic death penalty for apostasy;
  • The equality of rights of all people before the law as opposed to Sharia’s institutionalized discrimination against women and non-Muslims.

The Fatal Fallacy of Muslim Outreach

Muslim_Brotherhood_Emblem (1)By Pamela Geller:

When the government engages in “Muslim Outreach,” what are its objectives?  To make us safe?  To undermine the vicious ideology that commands our conquest, subjugation, and oppression?  Or to appease and capitulate to these supremacist groups?  Clearly it is the last, and the consequences of such foolhardy and delusional efforts render us less safe, as in the case of the Boston Marathon jihad bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Those devout Muslims in Boston designed bombs to tear through the flesh and bone of babies, mothers, and families, and only a couple of brave politicians have shown interest in the motive.  Is that what we have become as a nation?  A people?

The Boston bombers have said they slaughtered Americans in the cause of Islam.

Yet it was only Representative Louis Gohmert (R-TX) who has shown any interest in the implications of this.  Gohmert is a hero, a singular man of courage.  He pressed FBI director Robert Mueller last month until finally Mueller admitted that the only contact that the FBI had with the Boston bombers’ terror mosque was “outreach.”

Outreach is a euphemism for submission.  With the Boston jihad bombings, the mosquerade of “outreach” achieved its goal of deceiving and “subduing” the dhimmi FBI.  Americans were murdered in cold blood, but the FBI’s “outreach” with the terror mosque was successful.

Gohmert, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, also blasted the FBI in April over how political correctness prevented investigators from honing in on the Boston bombing suspects.  The Obama administration scrapped all mention of jihad and Islam from all FBI training manuals.  That scrubbing came at the insistence of Muslim groups with which the FBI and other agencies were engaged in “outreach.”

And in Tennessee, under the guise of “Muslim Outreach,” Obama’s Department of Justice has vowed to criminalize postings on social media that offend Muslims.  So Muslim Outreach has become the apparatus for Sharia implementation.  U.S. Attorney Bill Killian led a seminar there recently about how civil rights laws could be used to criminalize criticism of Islam.  Will Killian vow to criminalize the vicious Jew-hatred commanded in the Quran?  Will Killian ban the hate speech in the Quran?  No, but he has vowed to criminalize postings on social media that criticize Islam or offend Muslims.

In January 2012, I received the first in a series of DOJ bundles in response to my FOIA request filed close to a year before that.  Specifically, I asked for “records relating to the meeting of the ‘Monthly Outreach Meeting’ with Muslim and Arab groups at the Civil Rights Division. Specifically, include lists of attendees at each monthly meeting, the agenda of each meeting and any minutes or summary prepared subsequent to each meeting. Please also specifically note the meetings at which the Attorney General of the United States attended.”

The principal impact of reading through the material was the sheer bulk of it.  Hundreds and hundreds of pages of e-mails, documenting nearly daily friendly contact, consultation, cooperation, and collaboration between the DOJ and Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood groups.  One thing was clear: the Muslim Brotherhood had fully infiltrated command and control at the Department of Justice civil rights division.

Sharia Comes to Great Britain

images (63)Answering Muslims:

Home Secretary Theresa May recently banned Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller from the United Kingdom, claiming that their presence would not be “conducive to the public good.” May cited Spencer and Geller’s views on Sharia and Jihad as the reason for the ban. By banning people for criticizing Sharia and Jihad, Great Britain has just enforced Sharia blasphemy laws.

Whenever there is a public disagreement, it’s always good to observe which side is calling for open discussion, and which side is trying to shut it down. This is a good initial indicator of where the evidence lies.

Britain Embraces Jihad Terror

spencer-geller

Sign the petition to allow Geller and Spencer to speak in the U.K.

By :

Wednesday morning I received an official letter from the British Home Office, notifying me that I would not be allowed to enter the country on the grounds that “your presence here is not conducive to the public good.” My colleague Pamela Geller received a similar letter. We had planned to lay a wreath at a memorial to British soldier Lee Rigby, who was beheaded by Islamic jihadists on a Woolwich street on May 22. But it is not conducive to the public good in Britain to oppose jihad violence and Islamic supremacism.

For that is why the ban came down. The Home Office’s letter to me said:

You are reported to have stated the following:

[Islam] is a religion and is a belief system that mandates warfare against unbelievers for the purpose for establishing a societal model that is absolutely incompatible with Western society because media and general government unwillingness to face the sources of Islamic terrorism these things remain largely unknown.

I said no such thing, of course. I generally speak and write in coherent English. But the point is clear enough. I certainly have pointed out that Islam mandates warfare against unbelievers. This is not really a controversial point to anyone who has studied Islam at all. One man who has done so has said that “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.”

What venomous Islamophobe said that? Omar Ahmad, cofounder of the “civil rights” organization known as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Another notorious hatemonger explained that “the Islamic state, whose principal function was to put God’s law into practice, sought to establish Islam as the dominant reigning ideology over the entire world….The jihad was therefore employed as an instrument for both the universalization of religion and the establishment of an imperial world state.” That Islamophobe was Majid Khadduri, an Iraqi scholar of Islamic law of international renown.
