Islamic jihadists want to make an example of Pamela Geller, showing that they will enforce Sharia’s death penalty for blasphemy upon non-Muslims with impunity. U.S. authorities, in response, are busy kowtowing, instead of declaring that Pamela Geller will be protected and the freedom of speech defended. Capitulation is the order of the day — but the cowards call it “respect” and “refraining from deliberate provocation.”
“Extremists tweet home address of US liberties campaigner Pamela Geller,” by Alexander Ward, Independent, June 14, 2015:
Pamela Geller, the President of the American Freedom Defence Initiative (AFDI), has been targeted by Islamic extremists after they tweeted her home address in New York.
Ms Geller has previously organised controversial “Draw the Prophet” events in Texas which resulted in a deadly attack when gunmen tried to gain access to the event.
Actually, there was just one such event so far, and it was not called “Draw the Prophet,” as we do not acknowledge Muhammad as a prophet. The event was intended to stand for the freedom of speech against attempts to use threats of violence to force non-Muslims to obey Sharia blasphemy laws.
The tweet, which was posted by an account linked to Abu Hussain al-Britani, a British man fighting for Isis, showed Ms Geller’s home address followed by #GoForth. The account has since been suspended by Twitter.
In May, two gunmen were killed and a security guard injured, when they attacked the “Draw the Prophet” event in Garland.
The contest had been organised in the months after the January attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo.
In the aftermath of the shooting the AFDI attempted have the cartoon published on Washington DC subway network, a move which was blocked by transport authorities.
At the time, Ms Geller told NBC: “There is nothing about this cartoon that incites violence, it is within the established American tradition of satire.”
