Pamela Geller, American Thinker: It Isn’t Political Correctness, It’s Shariah

My latest oped in the American Thinker:
American thinker shariah

Here's an excerpt. Please read the whole thing and comment over at the Thinker:

Shariah law forbids criticism of Islam. And here we are.
We are witnessing an Islamized America. This is well beyond political correctness. We are enforcing Shariah law. We will not insult Islam. That is Shariah law. We self censor. That is Shariah law.
We disrespect ourselves, our nation, so that we might respect Islam.
This is dhimmitude. We should be raging. We should be outraged. We
should be strategizing for this worldwide conflict. We should be
debating about which leader will best handle Islam's war on the West.
And yet we have not one leader who begins to understand the conflict —
that's how feared the subject matter is. Not one leader.
there was an interesting debate at National Review Online between soft
conservatives who soft-pedal Islam and those who stand for reality of
Islamic doctrine, conservative principles and the essential truth. By
and large, the conservatives have dropped the ball on Islamic jihad.
This has been made painfully clear by the lack of a leader (any leader)
on the right who speaks to and takes up the fight against the sweeping
Islamization of America. America has no Geert Wilders.
conservatives are not really as bad as the Left is on Islam, but they
only get real when there is jihadi "intervention" that invades and
destroys the delusion of their narrative.
is interesting to me that the hierarchy of the conservative movement
(take CPAC, for example) stays far away from the counter-jihad forces
(i.e., Robert Spencer, Andrew Bostom, myself) except at moments like
these. Last year there was not one speaker, one event at CPAC that
spoke to the greatest threat this nation faces — which is why I staged
the Geert Wilders event at the Omni Hotel, during CPAC (but not a CPAC event) last year. 
the reality of war, Islamic doctrine and bloodshed lays bare the nature
of the enemy and the battle we are in, the door creaks open and Robert
Spencer starts getting invited to appear on radio shows, and NRO
finally runs pieces by Bostom and Spencer that show up the soft
conservative narrative on Islam, which is soft and fuzzy and stupid
(i.e., "Islamist" vs "Islamic"). Of course, we bad boys will be put
back in our boxes until the next terrible time the jihad comes calling.
pains me to say it, but expect to see us more frequently in the coming
months and years. For the giant con job on the American psyche
continues apace: He was a crazy! It was "vicarious" Post-Traumatic
Stress Disorder! It was "Pre-Traumatic" Stress Disorder! It was radical
extremism! It was part of a tiny fringe! It doesn't represent Islam!
lies. He was devout. He was a jihadist. Period. And many Muslims admire
what he did. The Left worries about Muslim backlash. How about Muslim
backlash against the infidels? Every "Soldier of Allah"
who goes jihad is an enemy combatant. Every devout Muslim who believes
in the word of the Quran has his or her duty to Islam, his call to
jihad. Hence this terrible act of war, the 14,363 Islamic attacks across the world since 911, and all of the relentless plots, plans and to take down America in the past month alone. Devout Muslims should be prohibited from military service. Would Patton have recruited Nazis into his army?
