Pamela Geller has had a busy couple of weeks. From a second tier political celebrity, she has arisen to be the most controversial woman in the world now with a Fatwah on her life.
She held a Muhammed cartoon drawing contest in Garland, Texas in the same hall Muslims met in January a week after the Charlie Hebdo-Kosher Market massacres.
Pamela and her group of cartoonists killed no one. It doesn't dignify an argument as to whether these drawings were in these artists' First Amendment right to draw.
No doubt, this was provocative speech. Yet, Sharia Law, already recognized by some courts in America, has no business being instituted by force in any country, much less these United States.
Geller's contest drew two armor-protected, weapon-carrying ISIS Jihadis. Their mission was the mass murder of the folks who attended Pamela's animation fest. They were intent on pulling a Charlie Hebdo in Garland, only to be gunned down by the local police swat team.
Like Salmon Rushdie and a growing list of "offenders of the Prophet," Pam earned a Fatwah on her life by the Sharia believers. Note: There was no due process, no arrest, no prosecution, no defense allowed, no jurisdiction and no Constitutional rights as are guaranteed to American citizens.
Seems Gitmo Terrorists have more rights than Geller. Then there were the spin-dox, one of whom stood out with his bullying of Geller:
Bill O'Reilly, one of the first to cast stones at Pamela Geller disagreed with her vehemently. He said he would have found another way to fight radical Islam.
Here's what got my attention. Bill is quoted by the Washington Times as saying, "Jesus would not have sponsored a 'draw the Prophet' contest."
Before I go further, a couple of disclaimers:
• I enjoy O'Reilly's show and agree with him sometimes. I have read most of his books, including "KILLING JESUS."
• Arriving late at my DC hotel for my second CPAC meeting in 2010, I went to the front desk to get some bottled water. They directed me to the bar. Sitting at the bar was a woman who I semi recognized. I asked if she was Pamela Geller. She nodded and patted the empty chair next to her. Two hours later, I had a pretty good idea of what Pamela Geller was about. She was animated about the revolt of moderate Muslims in Iran against the Ayatollahs and their Sharia Law. She was befuddled and grief-struck by these Western-friendly Muslims' abandonment by the Obama Administration. This proved that Geller wasn't against Islam just the forced spread of Sharia Law.
O'Reilly opined that he thought upsetting the Muslims wasn't the way to handle the problem of Radical Islam. He would handle it a "different way" This leads me to speculate about how much Factor Guy wrote of "KILLING JESUS" and how much his co-author, Martin Dugard penned. Worse, did Bill read it?
Seems the "No-Spin Zoner" has been caught in the rinse cycle:
• Jesus infuriated the Pharisees (Jewish Priests) by violently turning over the sales and money-changing tables at the Temple, screaming about how sacrilegious this was in "G0d's House."
• Jesus' vagueness to the Romans got him convicted of saying he was the "King of the Jews." For this, the Romans crucified him, with all of the tortures that came with it.
Geller, having lived 20 years longer than Jesus' entire time on Earth has never, to my knowledge, been convicted of even jaywalking.
Pamela has a career of legal activism, writing and blogging. With pals, Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch and David Horowitz of Freedom Center she has successfully fought in court to put advertising against Jihad and Sharia on public transportation.
She was stalwart at stopping the 9/11 Mosque that was going to be built within blocks of that terrible site. In fact, Muslims have traditionally built Mosques over the churches and Synagogues they have conquered and destroyed. The al-Aqsa Mosque is built directly over the Second Holy Temple, which was abandoned when the Romans killed or threw most of the Jews out of their capital, Jerusalem, in the year 70.
Bill, you've been around for a while and have a lot of media power. So how's your progress been since the Obama Regime has been in power the last eight and one-half years?
For that matter, what great sin caused these same radical savages to take down the WTC and bomb the Pentagon before the last plane was stopped by the passengers and crashed into a Pennsylvania field? My reaction to touring the 9/11 Museum a few days ago was anger. Have you forgotten already, Bill?
Further, why are you joining ISIS in slapping around an innocent Jewish girl like Jews need you to pile on, too?
Well, I gotta give you this, Bill. You did call President Obama a Patriot. We can all see how that strategy worked.
Or am I wrong?
