New York Times.. U.S. Anti-Islam Protests, Like The One Scheduled 9/11/10 By Muslim Basher Pamela Geller, Bolster Extremists and Fuel Al-Qaeda Propaganda.

Saturday, August 21, 2010

WASHINGTON — Some counterterrorism experts say the anti-Muslim sentiment (led by Pamela Geller) that has saturated the airwaves and blogs in the debate over plans for an Islamic center near ground zero in Lower Manhattan is playing into the hands of extremists by bolstering their claims that the United States is hostile to Islam.

Pamela Geller, ‘Queen Of Muslim Bashers,’ At Center Of N.Y. ‘Mosque’ Debate.. By some accounts, the heated opposition to the so-called Ground Zero mosque has been drummed up by a telegenic blogger with a strong New York accent and even stronger opinions. Pamela Geller, a Long Island native who writes the blog “Atlas Shrugs,” said she was the “quintessential New York City career girl” before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Since then, she has co-founded groups dedicated to fighting the “Islamization” of America, sponsored anti-Muslim ads in several cities, and, more recently, become a near daily presence on television news programs. 

Opposition to the Islamic center (initiated by extremist Pamela Geller, HER PHOTO ABOVE), by prominent politicians and other public figures in the United States has been covered extensively by the news media in Muslim countries. At a time of concern about radicalization of young Muslims in the West, it risks adding new fuel to Al Qaeda’s claim that Islam is under attack by the West and must be defended with violence, some specialists on Islamic militancy say.

Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born cleric hiding in Yemen who has been linked to several terrorist plots, has been arguing for months in Web speeches and in a new Qaeda magazine (“Inspire” run by Charlotte’s Samir Khan) that American Muslims face a dark future of ever-worsening discrimination and vilification.  “When the (anti-Muslim) rhetoric is so inflammatory that it serves the interests of a jihadi recruiter like Awlaki, politicians need to be called on it.”

Many Republican politicians, including Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin, have said that the proposed location of the center showed insensitivity to the victims of 9/11.  Others political leaders, including President Obama, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York and Gov. Christopher J. Christie of New Jersey, have defended the right of Muslims to build the center or warned against anti-Muslim hysteria (led by extremist Pamela Geller).
Dalia Mogahed of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies said the outcry over the proposed center “plays into Awlaki’s arguments and Osama bin Laden’s arguments” by suggesting that Islam has no place in the United States. She said that extreme anti-Muslim views in the United States (Pamela Geller again) ironically mirror a central tenet of extreme Islamists: “That the world is divided into two camps, and they’re irreconcilable, and Muslims have to choose which side they’re on.” more from this source…………

Hate Monger Pamela Geller; Some media experts doubt Geller’s influence, though, and question why reporters have given her controversial views a platform. Postings on “Atlas Shrugs” have included a video suggesting Muslims have sex with goats, a doctored picture showing President Obama urinating on an American flag, and a fake image of new Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan in Nazi garb. 
Geller has also accused Obama of anti-Semitism, said that he does the bidding of “Islamic overlords,” and posted an essay suggesting that the president is the love child of Malcolm X.  Geller’s groups, Stop the Islamization of America, and the Freedom Defense Initiative, have bought ads critical of Islam on public buses in New York, Miami, and San Francisco.
One member of the board of the Freedom Defence Initiative is John Joseph Kay, who has written that all Muslims are out to kill ordinary Americans: “Every person in Islam, from man to woman to child may be our executioner. In short, that there are no innocents in Islam … all of Islam is at war with us, and that all of Islam is/are combatant(s).(sic)”  After transit officials in Detroit refused to post the ads, Geller sued, and the litigation continues, more from this source…………..
ANTI MUSLIM BASHER PAMELA GELLER ALLIGNS WITH RACIST EDL; Pamela Geller is on a mission to save the free world and she’s doing it, on this occasion, in a bikini as she writhes around in the sea. “Here I am in my chador, my burka,” Geller jokes to the camera in one of a string of video blogs campaigning against Islamic “world domination” shortly before kicking back in the waves. “There is a serious reality check desperately needed here in America and I’m here to give it to you, but I’m just not ginormous enough. What can I say? And on that note I’m going to go swimming in the ocean, and visit my mama, and fight for the free world.”
This strange performance might suggest that Geller is a figure consigned to the margins of the widening and increasingly heated debate about the role of Muslims in America. Far from it. The flamboyant New Yorker, who appears on her own website pictured in a tight fitting Superman uniform, has emerged as a leading force in a growing and ever more alarmist campaign against the supposed threat of an Islamic takeover at home and global jihad abroad – and never more so than in the present bitter dispute over plans to build an Islamic centre near the site of the World Trade Centre, brought down by al-Qaida.
But while Pamela Geller has inserted herself into mainstream politics in America, she has also aligned herself with far-right causes across the globe including the English Defence League (EDL) in Britain, white supremacists in South Africa and Serbian war criminals. Geller says that after the September 11 attacks she “began to immerse herself in gaining a full understanding of geopolitics, Islam, jihad, terror, foreign affairs and the imminent threats to our freedoms that the mainstream media and the government wouldn’t cover or discuss”.

Civil rights groups have accused Geller of “hate speech” for her repeated warnings of a looming threat of “Islamic domination”, including a claim that Muslim groups in America are working to impose sharia law on the entire population, and her assertions that the 9/11 attackers were practicing “pure Islam”.
Pamela Geller and her “boy-pal” Robert Spencer have launched several organisations including the FDI, which says it is fighting “specific Islamic supremacist initiatives in American cities” and hunting down “infiltrators of our federal agencies”, and SIOA, which calls itself a human rights organisation and is tied to a similar group, Stop Islamisation of Europe, which goes by the SIOE motto: “Racism is the lowest form of human stupidity, but Islamophobia is the height of common sense”.

In Atlas Shrugs, Geller lays bare her sympathies with extremist groups across the globe. She (Pamela geller) has vigorously defended Slobodan Milosevic, the former Serbian president who died while on trial at The Hague for war crimes, and denied the existence of Serbian concentration camps in the 1990s. She (Pamela Geller) has allied herself with racist extremists in South Africa in promoting a claim that the black population is carrying out a “genocide” of whites.
The website also carries a picture of Pamela Geller hugging Geert Wilders, the far-right Dutch politician who advocates banning the Qu’ran and the construction of new mosques, and runs a support campaign for him as he faces trial for incitement to hatred. Geller has also spoken out in favour of the English Defence League. When the anti-Islamic organisation was planning a rally outside parliament earlier this year, she wrote: “How I wish I could be there to stand with the English Defense League“.

Geller has claimed regular contact with the EDL leadership and recently published a screed by the organisation’s spokesman, Trevor Kelway. She said in one of her blogs: “I share the EDL’s goals … We need to encourage rational, reasonable groups that oppose the Islamisation of the West and not leave it solely to fringe groups like the BNP.”
While mainstream politicians in Britain and other parts of Europe generally steer clear of the likes of the EDL, Wilders and Serbian war criminals, Geller is providing a bridge between foreign extremists and prominent politicians in the US. Wilders is scheduled to appear on stage at the September 11 anti-mosque rally alongside Gingrich, Bolton and Gary Berntsen, a candidate for the US Senate.
