Great Neck Synagogue surrenders without putting up a fight, cancels Geller’s speech

Pamela Geller Event at Great Neck Synagogue Cancelled:

“The Synagogue is Unable to Bear the Burden.”

 Unreal: Leftist and Islamic supremacist thugs force cancellation of Pamela Geller speaking event

Geller vs the  “pasty-faced quislings”  –(rebuttal to come)

The Great Neck Synagogue has revealed its cowardice, the same way the Jewish Federation revealed its cowardice when it cancelled Pamela Geller’s talk there on June 25, 2012 within a few hours of the event sponsored by the Zionist Organization of America when I served as its Executive Director on the West Coast. In both cases, these Jewish “leaders” hide behind children, citing “security” concerns to disgrace one of their own, a proud Jew whom they are charged to protect.–  Creative Zionist Coalition Statement on Great Neck Synagogue Geller Talk Cancellation

Pamela Geller:

Due to relentless intimidation, bullying and threats, the Great Neck Synagogue is cancelling my talk at the Great Neck Synagogue on Sunday. Ironically, the subject of my talk was the war on free speech, and this incident shows how urgently this topic needs to be discussed. Leftist thugs, pushed and prodded by Islamic supremacist Habeeb Ahmed and his co-conspirators, threatened a march on the shul (among other things).– CBS News on Great Neck Synagogue Cancellation of Pamela Geller Talk

Leftist and Islamic supremacist thugs force cancellation of Pamela Geller speaking event

The precedent that was set by the cancellation of my talk in March in Worcester, Massachusetts, under pressure from the Leftist media and Islamic supremacists, and other cancellations in the past under similar pressure, has been reinforced once again: the Great Neck Synagogue on Long Island has caved in to heavy pressure from the same thuggish foes of the freedom of speech, and has cancelled a Pamela Geller speaking engagement that was scheduled for Sunday morning.

Synagogue officials have been subjected to an unrelenting barrage of defamation, lies and smears of Pamela Geller, and until tonight have stood firm — and their statement is as noteworthy for what it does not say as for what it does:

As the notoriety and media exposure of the planned program this Sunday have increased, so has the legal liability and potential security exposure of our institution and it’s [sic] member families. In an era of heightened security concerns it is irresponsible to jeopardize the safety of those who call Great Neck Synagogue home, especially our children, even at the risk of diverting attention from a potentially important voice in the ongoing debate. Accordingly, the Great Neck Synagogue Men’s Club will no longer be sponsoring the appearance of Pamela Geller this coming Sunday, and no event will be taking place in our facility.

Note that they don’t say “We finally realized that Geller was just as bad as they say” or some such. They say: “In an era of heightened security concerns it is irresponsible to jeopardize the safety of those who call Great Neck Synagogue home, especially our children, even at the risk of diverting attention from a potentially important voice in the ongoing debate.” In other words, the Leftist and Islamic supremacist thugs made it clear that the synagogue would be in danger if the event went on.

And so the goons know: make threats, issue smears, and decent people will cave. It is a terrible precedent for the future of the freedom of speech, and for America.

    Pamela Geller to Speak At Two Synagogues on Sunday

    Two courageous and magnificent Rabbis have asked me to speak on Sunday. Rabbi Yoseph Geisinsky of the Chabad, Great Neck and Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg of Congregation Beth-El in Edison, New Jersey have both invited me to speak at their synagogues on Sunday — the same day I was scheduled to speak at the Great Neck Synagogue on Long Island until that synagogue caved to a leftist/Islamic supremacist smear and intimidation campaign.

    Both Rabbi Geisinsky and Rabbi Rosenberg both extended the invitations to me personally this morning, and I commend them both for it. The cancellation by the Great Neck Synagogue was particularly craven and cowardly, as it sends the message that if leftists and Muslims defame those they hate loudly enough and for a long enough time, they will succeed in getting them silenced. But in contrast to that unconscionable self-imposed dhimmitude, both of these Rabbis are standing up for the freedom of speech and the defense of the Jewish people. They’re saying no to thuggery and pressure tactics. Above all, they’re standing up for the truth.

    They’re doing what all free people should be doing. The Jewish people must stand up. The Jewish people must have the will to speak against annihilationist rhetoric. History is proof that fear and capitulation are a recipe for disaster.

    Pamela Geller to Speak at Two Synagogues This Sunday

    Two courageous and magnificent Rabbis have asked me to speak on Sunday, April 14, 2013. Rabbi Yoseph Geisinsky of Chabad • 400 East Shore Road, Great Neck, NY and Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg of Congregation Beth-El • 91 Jefferson Blvd., Edison, New Jersey, have both invited me to speak at their synagogues this Sunday — the same day I was scheduled to speak at the Great Neck Synagogue on Long Island until that synagogue caved to a leftist/Islamic supremacist smear and intimidation campaign. I will be in Great Neck at 10 am and in Edison at 7 pm.

Re: “In an era of heightened security concerns it is irresponsible to jeopardize the safety of those who call Great Neck Synagogue home, especially our children, even at the risk of diverting attention from a potentially important voice in the ongoing debate. Accordingly, the Great Neck Synagogue Men’s Club will irresponsibly jeopardize it’s children’s future safety by allowing itself to be seen to show weakness in the face of intimidation by publicly SUBMITTING to the moslem’s extortions.”

    Hmm … seems some Jews haven’t lost the genetic knack of Submitting to extortion; next step will probably be to acquiesce into being herded into those boxcars for their state-mandated “vacations” – again.

  5. Its already 7 years ago that a friend of mine and myself tried to get Pamela to speak at the Great Neck synagogue, but we were knocked back then.

    So now we’re getting there, but its a protracted struggle.

  6. Here is proof that the murderers in Boston are extremists Muslims. Now do you believe me? It is in Russian, but I am having someone translate it. It is his Facebook with extremist Muslim beliefs. Check out it out for yourself. My Synagogue and I have been threatened and damage was done to my garage door.

  7. @rosenberg,

    You are preaching to the choir. Everyone here knew the Boston bombers were Muslims. Anti-governments malcontents target government buildings like the IRS attack of 2010.

    There should be a moratorium on all Muslim immigration into the West.

    Also, you said, “History is proof that fear and capitulation are a recipe for disaster.”

    -Amen to that. Aggressive bullies only respond to one thing. A forceful push back. Appeasement only breeds contempt and a greater increase in violence and cruelty. Those within the Jewish community who cave in to appeasement should be challenged as their actions put everyone at risk.

    Fight on and stand strong.
