Pamela Geller cries ‘kapo’
Don’t expect Pamela Geller to give to the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles any time soon. Citing security concerns, the federation canceled a scheduled talk by the right-wing blogger in its building. The planned talk was sponsored by the Zionist Organization of America, which is a federation tenant, and its topic was “Islamic Jew-Hatred: The Root Cause of the Failure to Achieve Peace.” Geller promptly took to her blog to lambaste federation officials. “Shame on our cowardly leadership for throwing one of our own under the bus,” Geller wrote. “We expect that from kapos, not from proud Jews who should hold the freedom of speech as a fundamental Jewish value.” Geller gained national attention two years ago for her loud activism against a proposed Islamic cultural center and mosque near Ground Zero. The Anti-Defamation League has alleged that Geller “fuels and fosters anti-Muslim bigotry in society.”
