Unprecedented Sharia Enforcement by City Governments

Pages: 1 2

Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Pamela Geller, the founder, editor, and publisher of AtlasShrugs.com. She is the executive director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), and is a regular columnist for World Net Daily, the American Thinker, and other publications. She is the author of Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.

FP: Pamela Geller, welcome to Frontpage Interview.

Geller: Thank you, Jamie.

FP: I would like to talk about your new ad campaign and all the controversy it is causing. Tell us what is going on.

Geller: Jamie, two counter-jihad ads that my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), began running last week in New York and San Francisco are causing quite a stir – not among the public, but among the mainstream media and craven politicians. Dhimmi public officials and the media are falling all over themselves in furious efforts to enforce the restrictions on free speech that the Sharia prescribes.

FP: What do the ads say?

Geller: In New York, the ads are running in Metro-North stations just north of New York City, as well as in the Bronx. They say, “*19,250 deadly Islamic attacks since 9/11/01. *And counting. It’s not Islamophobia, it’s Islamorealism.” In San Francisco, our ads say, “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat jihad.”

FP: And what has been the reaction?

Geller: Greenburgh, New York Town Supervisor Paul Feiner announced that he wanted Metro-North to warn passengers that the ads could be upsetting and don’t represent Metro-North’s views or that of the community. Feiner said, “[Muslims] should not be discriminated against. The posters encourage hatred, discrimination and do not help the efforts to fight hate crimes.”

Feiner implies that all Muslims support jihad. Sounds as if he is painting all Muslims with the same brush. How “Islamophobic.” It is “Islamophobic” and a real attempt to paint all Muslims as jihadists to suggest that all Muslims would oppose attempts to rein in the jihadists. Our ads are statements of fact. There have been, as of this writing, over 19,460 deadly Islamic attacks since 911. How is it “Islamophobic” to point that out?

And Peter Swiderski, the mayor of Hastings-on-Hudson, emailed me about the ads, saying: “I wanted to share with you what our Board of Trustees sent to the entire village tonight.”

FP: What did he want to “share”?

Geller: He wanted to “share” the letter that the village Board sent out.

FP: What did the letter say?

Geller: They wrote: “While the Board respects everyone’s right to free speech, we categorically condemn the bigotry and innuendo expressed by this billboard message. To tar a faith and its followers because of the actions of a few is deplorable, hateful and morally repugnant.”

FP: Right, and nothing in your ad condemns Islam and all Muslims because of jihad attacks.

Geller: That’s right, Jamie. The Board is reading the idea that “all Muslims” support jihad terror attacks into my ad. That is nowhere in my message. They are the Islamophobes and racists, not I. Do these politicians really believe that all Muslims support jihad? And if they believe it, why surrender so swiftly?

FP: Good point. What else did the letter say?

Geller: The Board also asked residents of Hastings-on-Hudson to write to the New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) expressing their “dismay” that our ads were not deemed “hate speech.” Yet the Mayor and this Board of spineless wonders maintained their neutrality about the anti-Semitic ads that the MTA previously ran; they were silent about them. Notice how these clowns at one government entity have “complained” to another about private citizens exercising their constitutional rights.

FP: Did you respond to Swiderski?

Geller: Yes. I wrote to him, asking “why no such mailing went out concerning the vicious anti-Semitic ads. The anti-Israel ads were twice the buy (100 kiosks.)  This speaks to a systemic, institutionalized anti-Semitism prevalent in your administration and among the Board. Care to comment?” Why didn’t he react as viscerally when the same kiosks had vicious blood libels posted about Israel? He is apparently OK with anti-Jewish ads. His bias is showing.

    Islamophobic or not we all should be aware what the koran teaches about the infidel. Also, all land is supposed to be declared for the use of allah and the rightful property of islam including America. That should be a warning sign of the dangers of islam in our country. Wake Up America!!

    • kafir4life

      It's not islamophobic to be be islamoaware.

      • Kufar Dawg

        Islamophobia is called commonsense by ANYONE non-muslim living in an islamofascist state.

  • Marty

    We need more such advertisements, especially if dhimmi cowards and appeasers don't want them. What about one featuring the statistical fact that three fifths of the koran is dedicated to all sorts of violence that muslims are instructed to perpetrate against non-muslims (and then gloat about the misery muslims inflict on behalf of allah)? Perhaps there could also be one quoting the peaceful but terribly misunderstood iranian, hamas, and hizbollah leaders calling for the annihilation of Jews everywhere on the planet as well as the nuclear destruction of the only democracy in the Middle East and the only place where muslims vote in free elections, Israel. Or one that states "90 percent of honor killings are within Islam." The potential is unlimited.

  • Kufar Dawg

    Have any Muslims anywhere publicly condemned the following genocidal "authoritative" hadeeths?

    "Allah's Apostle said, ‘You Muslims will fight the Jews till some of them hide behind stones. The stones will betray them saying, "O Abdullah (slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him."'"

    "Allah's Apostle said, ‘The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."'"

    In Sahih Muslim: Book 041, Number 6985:
    Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

  • Guest

    Wow, you are still just as chicken Shiite as the rest of the dimmihs. You have to say you are not condemning Islam? Of course you are, and you should be proud to say it. The actual religion teaches that Christians and Jews are not people. What kind of religion teaches that and you and to give a caveat that Islam itself isn't being condemned?

  • GuyMacher

    Whether we like it or not, we will need to confront Muslims in the streets at some point. Support from dimmis emboldens Muslims to take more and more actions to destroy us. So convert, pay the protection money, or fight for your life. Those are your options.

    All one need do is to make ads quoting select verses of the Q'uran , in the same vane , no need to burn a Q'uran , when exposings its verses on placards would be more effective in exposing this cult of barbarians .

    • Kufar Dawg

      The response of the islamofascists to the burning of their unholy book of hatred speaks volumes about the ideology of their religion. It's not an abstract lesson, it's concrete fact.

  • hammar

    Even mohammed will be dragged from his grave and judged!
    Jesus Christ is Lord and God. Amen

  • Schlomotion

    Ms. Geller is trying to sell Americans an inferiority complex, first by proclaiming Muslims to be inferior to "civilized people" and secondly by trying to convince Americans that they need to form a resistance movement to the aforementioned "inferior" foreign occupier (a Muslim ZOG). She has used her skills as a disreputable car dealer to do so, e.g. the oversized ad and lying. She has apparently calculated that it is worth it to make an ad that is only as racist as other ads and then defend the morality of the ad by its cash value as compared to the purchase quantity of other ads. There are so many self-sabotaging stereotypes involved here that it is ridiculous.

    • Western Canadian

      You can always be counted on to make an absolute ass out of yourself. Your pathetic rant in no way comments on the article or ono Geller. Sober up, get back on your meds, and don’t bother trying again.

    • Kufar Dawg

      What race is Islam again? Because I had thought it nothing more than a violent, totalitarian ideology of hatred, antisemitism, xenophobia and misogyny.

      Your hypocrisy is hilarious considering the holy Quran speaks of muslimes as the best of people while Jews
      are variously described as "apes" or "apes and swine." In effect you accuse Geller of doing exactly what the ideology of islam asserts about believers vis-a-vis unbelievers.

      • Schlomotion

        I could take that so much more seriously if Muslims were slapping racist banner ads on California buses that said "Jews are apes and swine" as you contend. I could take it much more seriously if you were not a groupie for a Maronite Catholic con-woman with five aliases.

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

          Oh, you poor little schlo. You wouldn't take that comment seriously if God wrote it on your sloping forehead.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    There is a steady stream of Islamist money going into government and political coffers from
    Islamist organizations. These so called government leaders are paid for by Islam to run
    interference for what is going on to subvert America, their consternation is the very proof
    the idea of complicity with Sharia brings to enlightenment…………..Islamist colonization must
    end in America and starting with ridding America of the Mullah in Chief in the November
    elections is key……………………………………..William

    • Sunbeam

      America's sovereignty is in your own hand. Please never be traitors to sell off your nation by exchanging with gold or silver or wealth of any kinds no matter what. You must sacrifice for your nation as you think it's been threaten by foreign element. As great heroes who are not afraid but courageous to fight, act, and even lay down their own life, be strong to uncover and cover till the last drop. Fight for truths till all truths prevail. We got on the other side who is too good at turning everything around. YOU form the backbone of your nation.

  • BS77

    Read Pam Geller, Brigitte Gabriel and Melanie Phillips. Get educated. Get real. This is not a "theoretical intellectual topic"………this is the survival of our Constitution, our freedoms, liberties and way of life. Thousands of men and women gave their lives during WW II to protect our nation, our rights and freedoms…..remember, do not forget….they died so we could remain a free people. Look at France and Britain….you have been warned.

    • Schlomotion

      A car dealer, a Lebanese huckster and a British pundit are going to save the US Constitution? Might I for a moment contrast them to the men who wrote the Constitution?

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

        Yes, and their love for liberty.
        Go for it, but I don't think you're up to the task.

  • Sunbeam

    There have been attempt to stop free speech at certain time and will do so more often in time to come. Free speech must never be taken away by anyone. If this be so – then nothing will be left.

  • Wallace Brand

    In listing the savage acts of the jihadists, Pam Geller overlooked the murder of Talia Hatuel and her four young daughters near Gush Katif. She was shot in her passenger car along with the four young girls. I don't remember their ages but I doubt any one of them was as old as ten. The lagniappe (frosting on the cake) for the jihadists was to shoot Talia through the belly so that the baby boy she was carrying in her pregnancy wouldn't survive either.
    If that was not "savage", I don't know what is. http://www.google.com/imgres?q=tali+hatuel&um

    Suppose Sharia Law is instituted there then think of the benefits for men.
    If we suspected our wives of cheating we could put her in a bag and throw her off a minaret

    Think of the benefits for Jew haters
    Jew haters could persecute Jews just for the hell of it.

    Great benefits for crooked businessmen if dealing with non Muslims.
    They could rob the other blind and he could not take you to court because he isn't a Muslim.

    What about extra randy gents?
    Why they could have many young wives which they could buy from the girls' famly.
    They could get rid of the old wives by saying I divorce they three times.

    For atheist o phobs
    They could demand conversion. If refusal you could chop his head off.

    All in all Islam sounds like a red necks dream.

    What do you think ladies???

    • Kufar Dawg

      A red necks dream eh? Racist much? Muslim Arabic slavers have enslaved white Europeans, Hindus, Sikhs, and Black Africans, Arabic Muslims WERE the supply side of African slavery.
