Investigator Bill Warner Questions Pamela Geller’s Influence On Murder And Hate Crime In NY Subway. CAIR’s Maryland spokeswoman, Zainab Chaudry, emphasizing that there is a distinct difference between hate speech and free speech. Chaudry believes the vast majority of people who see Pamela Geller’s ads recognize they are distasteful and don’t take them for face value. But she says there may be a small minority whose fear and anger toward Muslims is reinforced by the ads. Chaudry pointed to the case of New York’s alleged subway pusher, Erika Menendez, who said she shoved a man onto the path of a train because he was Muslim. “That was a station where one of Pamela Geller’s ads had been posted,” Chaudry said. “It’s hard not to draw that correlation.”
December 30th, 2012 NEW YORK…. A woman who told police she shoved a man to his death off a subway platform into the path of a train because she has hated Muslims since Sept. 11 and thought he was one was charged Saturday with murder as a hate crime, prosecutors said. Erika Menendez was charged in the death of Sunando Sen, who was crushed by a 7 train in Queens on Thursday night, the second time this month a commuter has died in such a nightmarish fashion.
Erika Menendez, 31, her photo above, was awaiting arraignment on the charge Saturday evening, Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown said. She could face 25 years to life in prison if convicted. She was in custody and couldn’t be reached for comment, and it was unclear if she had an attorney. Menendez, who was arrested after a tip by a passer-by who saw her on a street and thought she looked like the woman in a surveillance video released by police, admitted shoving Sen, who was pushed from behind, authorities said.
“I pushed a Muslim off the train tracks because I hate Hindus and Muslims ever since 2001 when they put down the twin towers I’ve been beating them up,” Menendez told police, according to the district attorney’s office. READ MORE CLICK HERE.
December 12th, 2012….Anti-Islam Subway Ads By Pamela Geller Feature Exploding World Trade Center, Quote From The Quran. New York City’s resident Islamophobe is back with yet another anti-Islam subway ad. Pamela Geller’s latest features a photo of the World Trade Center exploding in flames next to a quote from the Quran that reads, “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers.”
When Geller last bought ad space in the NYC underground, New Yorkers didn’t react too kindly. Nearly all of the signs– which read “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad”– were vandalized. As a result, The Observer reports Geller doubled her ad buy this time, and that “the new ads will be plastered across at least 50 different locations.” “I refuse to abridge my free speech so as to appease savages,” she said.
