Pamela Geller, WND Column: War on Free Speech Comes to Long Island


If the ADL and the other Jewish so-called defense organizations were doing what
they were supposed to be doing and
not partnering with Hamas supporters like CAIR, while Jewish money goes to fight
imaginary "Islamophobia," we would be so much better off.

War on free speech comes to Long Island
Exclusive: Pamela Geller invites 'freedom lovers' to join her at Great Neck synagogue

You know things are bad when a little Jew can’t even give a talk at a synagogue on Long Island.

Here is the latest on Habeebgate. In my WND column
last Monday, I reported on a coordinated leftist/Muslim campaign to
intimidate the officials of a Long Island synagogue where I am scheduled
to speak on April 14 into canceling my talk. But the Great Neck
Synagogue refused to kowtow to intimidation: The talk is still set to go
on, and now the Islamic supremacist commissioner of the Nassau County
Human Rights Commission, Habeeb U. Ahmed, is in hot water for using the
power of his position to try to strong-arm the synagogue into canceling

Almost immediately after learning that I was scheduled to speak,
Ahmed wrote to a group of area leftist leaders. Apparently he used his
position on the Human Rights Commission as if he were a mob boss,
deploying a small coterie of leftists and Islamic supremacists in a
covert effort to intimidate the Great Neck Synagogue into canceling my
scheduled speech there. Habeeb and his accomplices ordered their minions
to strong-arm the shul, make calls and get the synagogue leaders to
cancel a proud Jew scheduled to speak at their synagogue. (More here.)

As a result of this egregious violation of the public trust, now the
Nassau County Attorney’s office has opened an investigation into Habeeb
Ahmed’s conduct. According to Brian Nevin, a senior policy adviser to
Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano, the investigation is attempting
to determine whether Habeed Ahmed “misused his title” to strong-arm the
synagogue into silencing free speech and enforcing the Shariah. Nevin
said: “They are looking to see if any rules in the county charter were
broken. It may be that there is no policy – and he has apologized.” (More here.)

He apologized – good. But that is hardly enough. I welcome this
investigation and hope the imposition of Shariah blasphemy laws using
public office will be punished to the full extent of the law – American
law for American courts. Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano should conduct a complete ethics probe and an investigation of Habeeb Ahmed’s abuse of power.

I urge Mangano to remove this thug from office. Habeeb Ahmed must go.
Ahmed is attempting to deny our First Amendment rights, using his
political power to bully and intimidate. Further, how is the Chairman of
the Board of the Human Rights Commission Zahid Syed handling Habeeb Ahmed’s strong-arming using the power and influence of his political office?

Habeeb must go.

But he has allies among compromised leftist Jews. The Forward reported: “New York activist groups Jewish
Voice for Peace, Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, and Jews Say No!
announced their opposition to a speech set for April 14 by Pamela
Geller, an activist known for her extreme anti-Muslim rhetoric, at the
Modern Orthodox Great Neck Synagogue. In an email sent to JVP activists
on April 3, the organization called on members to contact the Great Neck
Synagogue and ask it to cancel the event. Rebecca Vilkomerson, JVP’s
executive director, told the Forward on April 4 that at least 50 people
had contacted Great Neck Synagogue at the group’s behest.”

These are not Jewish groups but anti-Jewish groups which, when they
are not attacking Jews, are calling for a kristallnacht against the tiny
Jewish state. They promote and sponsor the vicious boycott, divest and
sanction (BDS) movement designed to alienate and cut Israel off from the
rest of the world.

The Great Neck Synagogue should be proud that it incurred the ire of
the viciously anti-Israel cabal of craven quislings – lapdogs for
