Pamela Geller Refuses to Go Into Hiding: ‘I’m a Free Person and I’m Fighting for Freedom’

Blogger and free-speech activist* Pamela Geller, the initial target of the jihadi beheading plot that later became a plan to murder police officers in Boston, said that she refuses to go into hiding after an ISIS sympathizer disclosed her home address on Twitter.

“I’m a free person and I’m fighting for freedom,” she declared in an interview with CBS News affiliate 1010 WINS in New York, where she lives. “The last thing I’m going to do is go into hiding.”

Geller was targeted on Twitter by a British-born ISIS recruit called Abu Hussain al-Britani, right down to her apartment number, along with the hashtag #GoForth, as in “go forth and kill her.” The jihadi’s Twitter account was soon suspended by administrators.

Geller told 1010 WINS that she has security sufficient to handle the threats against her, for which she reportedly pays some $30,000 per month.

“I will not let violent threats intimidate or silence me,” she said.  “I do not want to die, but I will not live as a slave.”

Just in case you are hesitant to blame Geller for the threats against her own life, CBS helpfully concludes its post on her interview by noting, “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.”

Funny, it seems like only yesterday the media and their beloved President Obama were assuring us “mainstream Islamic tradition” contains no such prohibition, and all that noise about murdering those who violate sharia law was either a perversion of the pure Religion of Peace by terrorist masterminds, or a clumsy misunderstanding on the part of Muslims who don’t understand their own religion as well as Western liberals do.

Not to mention that, for some, it is supposed to be evidence of “Islamophobia” — i.e. irrational bigotry — to believe Muslims are willing to use violence to impose sharia law upon unbelievers. I’m confused on that point, because liberal political and media culture seems convinced Geller is to blame for jeopardizing her own life by refusing to wordlessly acknowledge this “Islamophobic” believe and stifle herself.

At the moment, Geller and her American Freedom Defense Initiative are attempting to purchase advertising space to publish the winning image from the Mohammed Art Exhibit that was unsuccessfully attacked by jihadis in Garland, Texas. The image is not in any way offensive or controversial, other than its violation of the sharia law Geller does not believe in and refuses to submit to, a speech code completely alien to the legal system of the United States of America.

CBS News somehow forgot to print an image of this cartoon in their report, so allow me to help them correct that little oversight:

*Anyone who doesn’t like to see Geller identified as a “free-speech activist”: drop me a line when terrorists try to kill you to suppress your free speech, and be sure to include how much you’re spending on security per month to continue exercising your First Amendment rights. The refusal to comply with speech codes enforced by violence is the paragon of free-speech activism. Agreement with the speech in question is not necessary to acknowledge that fact.

Third Muslim arrested in jihad attack on AFDI Garland free speech event

“The indictment indicates that Kareem took the shooters — Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi — to practice shooting and gave them assault rifles.” Clearly this was planned for a considerable time, and these jihad murderers are likely to have chosen a soft target. “Third Man Arrested in Garland ‘Draw Muhammad’ Shooting: Authorities,” by Todd L.

  1. “Geller was targeted on Twitter by a British-born ISIS recruit called Abu Hussain al-Britani, right down to her apartment number, along with the hashtag #GoForth, as in “go forth and kill her.” “

    Can someone repay him the honour by publicising his UK home address?

    1. He is proabaly in ISIS territory. However, he must be looking out of his window to see if he can see a passing drone.

  2. Islam’s message is to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the Earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a state on the basis of its own ideology and programme, regardless of which nation assumes the role of the standard bearer of Islam or the rule of which nation is undermined in the process of the establishment of an ideological Islamic state. It must be evident that the objective of Islamic ‘Jihad’ (armed struggle) is to eliminate the rule of an un-Islamic system and establish in its stead an Islamic system of state rule. Islam does not intend to confine this revolution to a single state or a few countries; the aim of Islam is to bring about a universal revolution.”
    Furthermore, anybody in the world, with faith or without faith, must come together in order to eradicate this cancer from the body of humanity, Israel. We are ever grateful to the late Imam Khomeini for starting this occasion, namely the Jerusalem Day because the world . . . must never forget Jerusalem, must never forget Jerusalem. For us Muslims, Jerusalem is the mother of faith. Jerusalem is in our hearts and minds. Jerusalem is the cornerstone to our Islamic nation. Those who are prepared to sell Jerusalem do not represent us, do not speak for us. Those who resist, those who fight, those who perform jihad (martyrdom) against Zionism are the true representatives of the Palestinians, and all the Muslims regarding the Palestinian issue.

    Do you know why Tony Blair, George Bush, and all the members of this camp are so worried? They are worried because they know the world can see clearly today that Israel is a menace, is a threat to humanity. They can no longer fool anybody and they are worried that this spoiled baby of theirs is about to be thrown out of this human body of ours.
    It is just a matter of time. You count my words and you remember these words. It is a matter of time, as they were removed from south Lebanon because of the great jihad of Hezbollah; and as they are removed from Gaza because of the great jihad of Hamas and Islamic jihad this black chapter in the history of humanity will eventually come to an end– and we say, we say we are willing to bring it to an end peacefully. But if they don’t want peace, we have another language, we have another language, and we have every right to use that language and time will tell and history will tell.

  3. I have lived as a Muslim for several years after my doomed marriage to a Muslim (Al Samman). Having securitized Islam and the deeds of the false prophet of Islam, Mohammad, (particularly on this site) I definitely realized that Mohammad was not a prophet of the real God nor the Koran was the word of the real God.
    Mohammad was merely a liar, pedophile, plunderer, rapist, and warmonger.

    What really made me leave Islam is that I am following the teachings of a self-styled prophet who cannot guarantee me a place in the Kingdom of God.

    Mohammad himself wasn’t sure about his destination while all the Bible prophets were surely knew that they were going to heaven after death.

    Jabir reported that the Prophet of Islam said: “No good works of yours can ever secure heaven for you, nor can they save you from hell — not even me, without the grace of God.”
    Abu Huraira related that when the verse, “Cause thy near relatives to fear,” was revealed to the Prophet of Islam, the Prophet arose and began to proclaim: “Oh people of the Quraysh, and you sons of Abdul Manaf, and you Abbas, son of Abdul Muttalib, and you, Safiyyah my aunt, I cannot save you from the punishment of the Day of Resurrection. Take care of yourself, O my daughter Fatimah; you may use my property, but I cannot save you from God. Take care of yourself” (Bukhari).
    Abu Huraira reported that the Prophet of Islam said: “No one of you will enter Paradise through his good works.” They said: “Not even you, O Apostle of God?” “Not even I,” he replied, “unless God cover me with His grace and mercy. Therefore be strong, and morning and evening, nay every moment, try to do good.”
    Mohmmad’s prayer asking forgiveness:
    Volume 1, Book 12, Number 711:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    Allah’s Apostle used to keep silent between the Takbir and the recitation of Qur’an and that interval of silence used to be a short one. I said to the Prophet “May my parents be sacrificed for you! What do you say in the pause between Takbir and recitation?” The Prophet said, “I say, ‘Allahumma, ba’id baini wa baina khatayaya kama ba’adta baina-l-mashriqi wa-l-maghrib. Allahumma, naqqim min khatayaya kama yunaqqa-ththawbu-l-abyadu mina-ddanas. Allahumma, ighsil khatayaya bil-ma’i wa-th-thalji wal-barad (O Allah! Set me apart from my sins (faults) as the East and West are set apart from each other and clean me from sins as a white garment is cleaned of dirt (after thorough washing). O Allah! Wash off my sins with water, snow and hail.)”
    is Heaven promised in Islam?
    Allah Promised hell for his followers:
    Al-Imran (The Family of Imran)
    Sura 3:185, “Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception.”
    These Suras from Quran very clearly says that after death everyone will go to hell fire then judgment.. When a person went to hell fire then how and why it is possible that he/she can come out from hell fire and go to paradise.. no way.. This verse does not say anything about eternal life.

    This verse very clearly says that every believer in Allah is tasting death means they did not get the life while Jesus promised eternal life and heaven as we read in John 10:10 “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
    And also every soul is going to hell fire till the day of judgment means they are not reaching heaven. So of course Allah promised hell fire for his believers. I said “no way” for coming out from the hell fire and go to heaven. There is no chance to go to heaven once you go to hell fire… But yes, Jesus can save you when you are still in this world as He said in John 3:15 “that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
    John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

    How a person can save himself/herself from hell fire when he/she is already in hell fire? And this verse says that they will be there till the time of Day of Judgment. Do you think a person who is already in hell fire will get a seat in heaven after judgment? Judgment is a day when people get their sentence and verdict.. no reward my friend that day.
    Allah promised hell fire for Mohamad’s followers but contrary to it Jesus promised heaven for His followers.
