Update May 1, 2013:
The rabbi of the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue has been strong-armed into cancelling the event. A new venue has been secured. Time, location, and details to be announced.
JDL-Canada has announced that they have invited Pamela Geller to speak in Toronto on May 13, 2013, at 7:30 p.m. The event will take place at the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue in Thornhill (technically that’s outside of Toronto’s city limits, but it is accessible).
Who is Pamela Geller?
She is one of America’s foremost fighters for free speech and traditional values. Her work is focused on preventing the influence of militant Islam on the United States.
It is important to listen to people like her, because most Canadians still live in lethargy ignoring the danger. Many of us still think that the inherent niceness of Canada puts us above any troubles. And yet the signs are all around us.
Just this month Palestine House brought to Toronto an Arab member of the Knesset, who openly advocated an armed insurrection against his country’s government. We witnessed in London (Ontario) the unraveling of a Muslim terrorist network, with at least four members (and of course the Muslim “leaders” of the town know nothing about it).
Over the last few days, the blogger Blazingcatfur uncovered extensive hate materials on the website of the Muslims of Calgary, which are supposed to be a moderate Muslim organization.
Openly manifesting their hatred for the Jews, they don’t even use the obligatory code word “Zionists” when blackmailing their targets. According to their vile propaganda, the Jews are to be blamed for all misfortunes in the world and that view is even supported with quotes from the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” From the writings of the Calgary Muslims becomes very clear that jihad is a continuous war against Christians and Jews.
It is ironic that those people can preach their hatred with impunity, while Pamela Geller is persecuted – different organizations of American Muslim fanatics have been trying (and often succeeding) to shut down her public appearances and campaigns. The notorious Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization which tries to silence everybody who differs from the leftist agenda, has blacklisted her.
And they have to be afraid – Pamela Geller’s work is really extensive. She is the founder, editor and publisher of Atlas Shrugs.com and President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA).
Among her books are The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America (co-authored with Robert Spencer and with a foreword by Ambassador John Bolton); Freedom or Submission: On the Dangers of Islamic Extremism and American Complacency; and Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance (WND Books). She is also a regular columnist for World Net Daily, the American Thinker, Breitbart.com and other publications.
She has been involved not only in writing, but also in practical work in defense of the victims of Muslim fanaticism, like potential targets of honour killings and apostates from Islam. She has organized ad campaigns throughout the United States to bring awareness about those dangers (naturally, the Muslim extremists and their proxies like CAIR have fiercely fought to silence her).
No matter what your political views are, it is essential to hear what she has to say. The dangers she deals with would not go away, if we pretend that they don’t exist.
