I did a live interview with 1010 wins on the latest Islamic threats to my life:
Blogger Pamela Geller On 1010 WINS: I Will Not Let Violent Threats Silence Me
June 16, 2015 9:55 AM
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) —Pamela Geller, the conservative blogger known for provoking Muslims, said she will remain under heightened security for the foreseeable future in lieu of recent threats, but insists she is not in hiding.
Geller upped her security after an ISIS sympathizer tweeted out her Upper East Side address Friday, days after it was revealed that she was the supposed target of a beheading in a foiled terror plot in Boston.
“I’m a free person and I’m fighting for freedom,” Geller told 1010 WINS Tuesday. “The last thing I’m going to do is go into hiding.”
Despite the recent threats, Geller said she will not be stopped from speaking out or organizing future events.
“I have security arrangements that I believe are adequate to meet this threat,” Geller said. “I will not let violent threats intimidate or silence me. I do not want to die, but I will not live as a slave.”
WEB EXTRA: Who Is Pamela Geller?
Geller said her group, American Freedom Defense Initiative, is running an ad campaign in major cities across the country featuring the winning image from a controversial contest that offered $10,000 for the best cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad.
The May contest in Garland, Texas was the site of a shooting that ISIS later claimed responsibility for. The gunmen in the attack wounded a security officer before they were shot and killed at the scene.
According to mainstream Islamic tradition, any physical depiction of the Prophet Muhammad is considered blasphemous, and drawings similar to those featured at the Texas event have sparked violence around the world.
