DEFENDING THE WEST
The jihad double standard
Exclusive: Pamela Geller reveals how media are ‘paving way for chaos in U.S. streets’
A devout Muslim has beheaded one of his co-workers in a plant in Oklahoma. The Islamic State has threatened an imminent attack on New York City and vowed to fly the black flag of Islam over the White House. A Christian leader falsely accused of blasphemy has been murdered in prison by Muslims in Pakistan. And the government and media elites have lined up to condemn … my counter-jihad ads.
The Islamic ritual slaughter of beheading has moved past Iraq, Syria, Algeria and the Philippines and into the streets of London, and now, with the murder perpetrated Friday by Jah’Keem Yisrael, formerly Alex Nolen, a zealous convert to Islam, the American workplace. Jah’Keem beheaded a female co-worker and attempted to behead another female co-worker before the COO of Vaughan Foods in Oklahoma shot him. Jah’Keem had recently made extensive efforts to convert his co-workers to Islam.
Jah’Keem is not alone; another convert to Islam, Umar Lee, was arrested in Ferguson, Missouri, on Friday. Lee wrote this to a critic in 2010: “I could cut your neck with the sword of islam, and watch you squeal like a bitch like daniel pearl.”
Beheading is mandated in the Quran: “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks …” (47:4).
As all this has been going on, the mainstream media and lapdog politicians in New York City (including the far-left mayor, Bill de Blasio) have launched an all-out attack not on the Islamic leaders who sanction and even teach hatred of unbelievers, but on me for my American Freedom Defense Initiative, or AFDI, counter-jihad ads. They’ve done this as they predictably cover up the Islamic motivations for the recent jihads: The New York Daily News didn’t even mention the fact that the Oklahoma jihadist had tried to convert his co-workers to Islam.
The media find our ads “hateful” and “intolerant,” but they stand in defense of the Shariah. All Shariah legislation in the United States was widely attacked by the media, Islamic supremacists and their political lapdogs.
The timing has been exquisite: Even as a mass jihad plot against New York City subway system was thwarted, the Daily News ran a vicious article attacking our ads. It was, of course, one of many. The mainstream media run this tripe on an endless loop. Do they ever give us the platform or opportunity to respond in their pages? Never. It’s why our ads are so necessary. The media are self-enforcing the Shariah, and we must stand against oppression and in defense of freedom and free speech.
What is so galling about the Daily News piece was that the writer of this attack is Sikh, Rajdeep Singh. Several of the Sikh gurus were murdered by Muslims, and Sikhs have been subjected to violent Islamic persecution. In our own day, Sikhs have been forcibly converted to Islam even in the U.K., and in Pakistan they have been forced to pay the jizya, the tax that is a sign of their subjugation under Islamic rule. The jihad against the Sikhs is long and bloody.
So many Sikh leaders stand with us, but the New York Daily News won’t run their columns. But if you look at the comments below the article at the Daily News, they are overwhelmingly in our favor.
Our freedom coalition has broad support from the Sikh and Hindu community. Leaders including Tardeep Singh of the Sikh Awakening movement, as well as Amrit Pal Singh, Hari Singh Matharu and Raviranjan Singh, have all joined our coalition and expressed solidarity with our mission.
Rajdeep will have to answer to the millions of Sikh victims of jihadi wars, land appropriations, annihilation and enslavement. Shame on Mr. Singh: In the midst of all the jihad carnage, he actually claimed that our pro-freedom ads would threaten lives. The pro-jihadists hope our ads will threaten lives. They really want a Muslim to be attacked by some nut. They want this deeply, so they can use it to move against free speech.
Imagine: Would the Daily News in 1942 have run a piece titled, “Anti-Nazi ads could threaten lives”? Would they have said that by waging war against the Nazis and denouncing their ideology, American patriots were “fomenting a climate of fear and hate”?
These claims that these pro-freedom, anti-jihad terror ads foment fear and hate and endanger innocent people are an insidious attempt to enable jihad terror, Islamic anti-Semitism and Shariah oppression by stigmatizing and demonizing opposition to them.
In Islamic countries, if you criticize Islam, you are sentenced to death. In the West, if you criticize Islam, they assassinate your good character and destroy your name and reputation. There are few brave voices who publicly speak with candor about the threat we face. These courageous souls face ruin and death threats in defense of freedom and equality for all. And that is why there are so few of them. The mainstream media are sanctioning and paving the way for more jihad, more beheadings, more application of Shariah blasphemy laws in the U.S. They’re paving the way for chaos in American streets.
Calling my ads intolerant is laughable. Beheading is intolerant. Jihad is intolerant. Gender apartheid, creed apartheid and Islamic Jew-hatred are intolerant. Tolerance when applied to evil is evil.
