Here's my column that appeared today in WND — I wrote it yesterday, before the UK banned us in a supreme act of unparalleled cowardice. Anyone who applauds this, no matter how vehemently they may disagree with my work, is in for the rudest of awakenings. This not about Geller; this is about freedom. Pure and simple.
DEFENDING THE WEST
The media's Shariah enforcement
Exclusive: Pamela Geller on reporters' lies about attempt to ban her from U.K.
A visit to the U.K. by my colleague Robert Spencer and I to pay our
respects to victims of jihad on Armed Forces Day has turned into an
international incident. And why?
Because there is an unspoken adherence to the Shariah descending over the West. As I noted in my Monday column, Robert Spencer and I are scheduled
to join other members of the President’s Council of the international
human rights coalition Stop Islamization of Nations (SION) – the English
Defence League leaders Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll and Stop
Islamisation of Europe (SIOE) leader Anders Gravers – on June 29 for a
Memorial for Lee Rigby in Woolwich. Rigby was the British soldier who
was beheaded by Islamic jihadists in Woolwich on May 22.
But now the left-fascist group Hope Not Hate and Labour MP Keith Vaz,
chairman of the Home Affairs select committee, are trying to get us
banned from entering the country.
Imagine: The country of the Magna Carta Libertatum, or the Great
Charter of the Liberties of England, would consider banning two human
rights activists whose body of work is founded on the freedom of speech,
freedom of conscience and individual rights. The Magna Carta led to the
rule of constitutional law. It was the model for the legal structure of
the American colonies.
My organizations stand for the very things the British fought and
died for in World War II and decades later in Afghanistan and Iraq.
After their great sacrifices, the U.K. is going to ban freedom?
The British media are on a jihad against free speech – apoplectic as
they are at the thought that I, as well as Spencer, Gravers, Robinson
and Carroll, would be laying flowers in Woolwich on Armed Forces Day in
memory of the young dad and soldier Rigby. Despite the endless column
inches that have been devoted to this manufactured controversy, not one
member of the British media has asked me for comment – some, like Kevin
Rawlinson, go so far as to lie about it: “Neither Ms. Geller nor Mr.
Spencer responded to requests for comment.”

The Truth Must be Told
Your contribution supports independent journalism
Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared.

Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
