Even more trains and buses and billboards are now running with messages of reality and truth. This campaign is so needed now in the face of the relentless propaganda churned out daily by designated terror groups like CAIR, MAS and their leftist apologists.
After our ads first ran, news reports emerged about the beheading of US hostage Peter Kassig (whose conversion to Islam did not save him) and a host of other hostages. The Islamic State has threatened multiple times to strike in the US. How long do we have before they make good on those threats?
The Jewicidals are out for blood. Here’s what the self-hating Jews and their Islamic supremacist overlords have released:
In 2010, while Pamela Geller was revving up opposition to Park51, the proposed Muslim community center several blocks from Ground Zero, she also started what has turned out to be a national campaign, running virulently anti-Muslim, anti-Arab ads on buses and municipal transit stations, as well as taxis. Since then, she and her American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI)—listed by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a “hate group”—have initiated Islamophobic ad campaigns in more than a dozen communities, from Boston to Seattle, Chicago to Miami. The pattern is simple—provide hateful anti-Muslim/anti-Arab ad copy to a public transportation agency, offer to make a modest ad buy, sue (or threaten to sue) the agency on First Amendment grounds if it refuses to run the ad (or expresses reservations about running it), and reap lots of free publicity from the ensuing media coverage of the controvery
The Geller/AFDI ad campaigns most often explicitly link Israel with Islamophobia, either through images and words that smear both Muslims and Palestinians or through ads designed to respond to “anti-Israel” or “pro-Palestinian” ads. These campaigns have led to bold and creative activism by a wide range of communities that often work in coalition with one another. The annotated list below highlights this activism.
We know that Islamophobia takes many different shapes and forms, as do our actions. We highlight the multiple responses to the Geller/AFDI ads as examples of the powerful organizing that people have been doing all over the country and hope that they will be useful to our continued organizing against Islamophobia and anti-Arab racism. While we developed this resource with JVP chapters in mind, we also hope it will be valuable to other groups and communities.
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. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. 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.
Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
