Pam Geller Announces New International Anti-Muslim Effort

By Heidi Beirich on January 18, 2012 - 12:33 pm, Posted in Anti-Muslim

Anti-Muslim zealot Pam Geller announced this week the formation of a new international organization, Stop the Islamization of Nations (SION), for which she will serve as executive director. This “new global force” will merge the work of the two major anti-Muslim groups in the U.S. and Europe – Stop the Islamization of America (SIOA), run by Geller and co-founded by another anti-Muslim fanatic, Robert Spencer, and Stop the Islamization of Europe (SIOE), run by Anders Gravers out of Denmark. Spencer will serve as SION’s vice president.

This is not the first time these organizations have worked together. In the past, they have tried to hold events in Europe to protest what they see as a coming “Eurabia.”

Geller has a long track record of anti-Muslim activities. Most recently, Geller, whose blog Atlas Shrugs once suggested that President Obama is the “love child” of Malcolm X, celebrated a video that appears to show U.S. soldiers urinating on dead Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. “CAIR has whipped itself up into an Islamic frenzy because a video surfaced that appears to show US Marines [in] combat gear urinating on several dead jihadis,” Geller’s website said last week, referring to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim advocacy group. “Would anyone have CAIRed if Marines urinated on dead Nazi soldiers during WWII? (Anyone besides CAIR and Nazis, that is)?”

Gravers’ organization, which inspired SIOA, was cited by Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik in his manifesto as an organization that people should support and that should have far more members than it has. Breivik blamed the lack of support for SIOA on multiculturalism and political correctness. Spencer was a particular favorite of Breivik. His manifesto cited Spencer and his work dozens of times.

The new group intends to create a “common American/European coalition of free people” to “oppose the advance of Islamic law,” which it describes as in contradiction with “Western laws and principles.” It plans to publicize the names of politicians, activists and others “that promote the Islamization of Western policy and culture.”

SION’s board includes notable anti-Muslim activists, including Dr. Wafa Sultan, a Syrian-American psychologist who has called Islam a “brainwashing machine,” and Hindu nationalist Babu Suseelan, who is published on Spencer’s hate site, Jihadwatch. Gravers will also serve on the board. SION plans soon to hold a worldwide summit to further its efforts.

    Yes Ruslan, I know there are bad people in every sect and bad people are bad no matter what label they hang around there neck.
    And they all have one common trait. They want us dead! We can’t stick our heads in the sand to the Fascist Muslim threat to American anymore than we can any other threat. There simply aren’t enough good Muslims to counterbalance the fascist Muslim nut jobs out there that want to kill Americans.
    Some would turn their heads to the threat for the sake of political correctness. This will get Americans nowhere but dead!

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    “The fact remains; there is a real Muslim threat to this country.”

    No, there is not a “Muslim” threat to this country. Even the Salafists of Al Qaeda are on the ropes.

    ” How can so many Americans forget who stepped up so quickly to claim the bombing of the World Trade Centers. We didn’t go looking for a fight, they came to us.”

    Actually America went looking for many fights and found them. They used to back the same people they ended up fighting.

    “Why is it so politically correct to call out all other psycho extremists but the extremists of Islam get a pass?”

    Who is giving the extremists a pass?

    ” Some argue that the Muslim religion is peaceful. The undeniable truth is that peaceful Muslims — no matter how numerous — are no protection for us from the terrorist Muslim leaders and their freely announced intent to kill all of us “infidels.”

    Uh, actually those peaceful Muslims are protection for the rest of us, since their governments are charged with rounding up these extremists and they often do. The usual victim of these terrorist is Muslim.

    Could they hold the meeting “off planet” like say, Uranus!!! Yes, that is exactly what it was meant to say.

  • Guardian

    Yes Ruslan, there are Wacko extremists who claim everything from Christianity to Satanism and everything in between. We get it! And they all want us dead!

    The fact remains; there is a real Muslim threat to this country. How can so many Americans forget who stepped up so quickly to claim the bombing of the World Trade Centers. We didn’t go looking for a fight, they came to us.

    Know your enemies! All of them! If the left wing “hug-a-thug” society doesn’t stop worshipping at the altar of political correctness we are doomed to see 911 repeated. 9/11 was a mild wake-up call compared to what our enemies, the Islamic fascists, have in store for us if we let them.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    “Of course it is naive to think that that all Muslims are bad people or murderers, but it is the Islamic faith and the Koran that fosters these types of “Jihadist” incidents.”

    Oklahoma City Bombing, The Order of the Silent Brotherhood, Aryan Republican Army, Eric Rudolf, numerous bombings of abortion clinics, imperialist wars started by evangelical Christian presidents…

    You know, it is naive to think that all Christians are bad people or murderers, but it is the Christian faith and the Bible that fosters these types of Christian patriot attacks.

  • David

    @Michael Carney
    Hmm… Maybe an effort targeted at specific racists is a good idea, I would support any effort against that racist scum.

    @Ruslan Amirkhanov
    Nice argument (although for some reason I doubt Jason learned anything).

  • Guardian

    Come on people!
    When will you start calling your enemy your enemy?
    Less than a decade ago the U.S. was viciously attacked by radicals of the Islam faith. I can’t believe there are still those out there who have their heads stuck in the sand about this.
    1993 World Trade Centers; 2000, USS Cole; June 2009, Little Rock Ak; Nov. 2009, Fort Hood; Dec. 2009, Amsterdam to Detroit Flight; Oct. 10, 2010 Cargo Planes Bombs. Do I need to go on?
    Of course it is naive to think that that all Muslims are bad people or murderers, but it is the Islamic faith and the Koran that fosters these types of “Jihadist” incidents. It’s time to face stop hugging our enemies and start treating them like enemies. Islam is a violent and dangerous faith and they want us (Americans) dead! President Obama refuses to use the word “terrorist” but American people are still dying at the hands of it; at home and abroad. The last thing we need is Sharia Law introduced into the U.S.
    The less Islam in the world the better.
    No matter what you or I may think of Pam Gellar, facts are facts.

  • Kiwiwriter

    Ruslan, very well put. Nice smackdown.

    Jason, I said it before, and I’ll say it again: You are the one who has to provide evidence to back up your funnier claims.

  • Pickwick

    @ Ruslan — good job, sir! A pleasure to read your rebuttal.

  • Linnea

    Nice smackdown, Ruslan! As usual, your posts are wonderful to read. Glad you’re a frequent visitor to this site.

  • chris

    @Ruslan Amirkhanov, sir I thought I was a “master swordsman” in using FACTS to educate the ignorant. But YOU are in a class by yourself. What you have pointed out (that Europe is made up of several independent countries and cultures) is something that I tell my wife all the time. Whenever racists get on their “it’s all peace and love because we share the same skin tone” soapbox. And it’s not just reserved for white racists,I’m an equal op educator,lol! This goes for the “back to Africa types”. Normal people usually understand human nature. An experiment that I would love to try,but it is utterly impossible: I would let a racist choose as many groups that he/she feels is “ruining the world”. Those groups would vanish but you would still have their memory in your mind. Also you’d STILL have murder,theft,rape,assault,war and every other ill that was here when they were. Why? It’s simple…human nature.

  • Michael Carney

    Personally, I’m all in favor, of a new International anti Pam Geller effort…this Woman has got to be one of the most ignorant, stupid, racist human beings walking the face of the Earth…

  • COH

    It’s funny. Out here in Silicon Valley, at the Tech Museum, we have been enjoying an exhibit of Islamic contributions to science and technology since the dawn of man. A vast and varied number of inventions and innovations, many we still use and enjoy today.

    I think Pamela Gellar might be interested in these things so she can STOP using them now, including the INTERNET!

  • Tom Kissner

    So, does this mean that Pam Geller is placing herself into the same category as mass murderer Anders Breivik? One has to wonder.

  • Mary Christine (Justina) Erikson

    I read the Koran through twice, once in a western non authorized British version, with some remarks showing where it does not in fact support stuff that has all along been said by its supporters to support, this for centuries, and the other was the Saudi Arabia authorized translation which I got free from some Moslem missionaries who were working (ahem! ahem!)
    in a liquor store.
    I am minimally acquainted with Shariah law but there are to my knowledge several points where ALL the schools deviate from the Koran, and from the practices of Mohammed stated in some hadiths, AND DO SO TO THE DETRIMENT OF MOSLEM WOMEN AND OF EVERYONE, ALONG EXACTLY THE LINES COMPLAINED OF BY ANTI ISLAMISTS.

    Dr. Sultan should know, anyway.

    Since Islam was hijacked long ago by the sort of elements that once the population of moslems is large enough to gain political and legal control by the vote, and install shariah law, some of whose fine points are unknown to them until victimized by them (as described by a shariah leader in Canada who is appalled by how it can play out in marriage and divorce and sex and rape laws) the situation should be viewed as an attack by a cult.

    It is in the best interests of moslems to always be under a secular non moslem rule, staffed and enforced by non moslems, so that what has hijacked them cannot be put much into play without their willing submission to it.

    A good example is the rule of four eye witnesses to get a conviction. No forensics allowed. This rule was stated by Mohammed as ONLY FOR THE CASE OF A WOMAN ACCUSED OF ADULTERY, but has been made the rule for ALL crimes, making islamic countries effectively lawless,
    especially with the parallel “family law” that while unkoranic is often allowed or enforced in some countries. This is the sort of thing that got a woman gang raped on order of tribal elders because her brother was walking with a girl from a rival tribe, or that got an illegitimately (whether by rape or seduction I don’t recall) pregnant woman let go out of a saudi hospital to the hands of her family who were there expressly to kill her.

    Then there is the ever present islamic magic stuff, prohibited by the koran but allowed in practice a lot, because there is a shariah tradition that their god would not allow a large body of moslems to be deceived so whatever is local tradition from the “times of ignorance” is allowed, and so forth and so on.

    Such hijacking in a limited way occurred at times in Christian history, but was minimal, hard to enforce, and was not present uniformally and soon altered by the Reformation to some extent, though in that context more hijacking by Calvin in Geneva, etc. etc. but it is more fluid and correctable. Even in the RC context.

    Islam basically says that the koran is almost an eternal thing like God, and that it means what certain bodies of scholars several hundred years ago said it means, explicit statements to the contrary in it or the hadiths notwithstanding. The system is too entrenched to alter and those impressed with the Koran and converting to it and to some attractive parts of the lifestyle they get of islam in Western countries, are not acquainted with it in its full manifestation. Here it has to adapt and make nice. Back home is another matter, and that would become the case here or in Europe in a few generations of massive immigration and massive conversion of disaffected people who want a sense of community, the exotic some discipline and precision of what to believe and how to think that used to be available to some extent in Christianity but often is lacking now.

    I am not racist. I am convinced, that there was a demonic side to the manifestations that Muhammad experienced, and he himself was worried about this on several occasions. The popular form of Islam has no teaching whatsoever on male chastity and allows all kinds of abuse, incl. sexual, of slaves and servants, and captives, forced marriages so long as the girl though in tears the shariah says explicitly but does not speak and say no at the marriage – and she knows if she does her family will kill her with impunity.

  • RockyMissouri

    Ruslan Amirkhanov: Thank you so verty much for your words about an area of the world I love deary…!

  • JoeBuddha

    Ruslan – Thanks for the history lessons; guess I’m going to have to wander into Ottoman history. (US educational system completely turned me off history, but I’m trying to fight my way back…)

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Here’s a tip Jason. When someone owns you in the subject of history…STOP trying to make arguments based on history. You’re not good at it. ALlow me to demonstrate.

    “There was an entire system of slave labor camps in the Soviet Union called Gulags.”

    For the record the GULAG system was based on the pre-revolutionary Tsarist penal system, but WHAT THE HELL DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH THE SPLC?

    “40 million people were sent to the Gulags. Half of them died.”

    Uh, no sorry. See they kept records of all the people who ever went through that system, and your numbers don’t add up. Sorry.

    ” The goal of these Communists on this website is to turn America into a Communist state and send all normal, White, heterosexuals to Gulag slave labor camps.”

    1. Who on this site besides myself(and I’m just a commenter, I don’t work for these people) is a Communist?

    2. Please present evidence of this ridiculous claim.

    “Leftists never admit the crimes of Communism. These sociopaths think it was a good idea.”

    This is the biggest bunch of nonsense I have ever seen. Leftists from liberals to anarchists have spoken about these “crimes” of Communism countless times. Like most WNs, you don’t bother to look, therefore you remain ignorant. That has to be the stupidest claim I have ever seen.

  • Mitch Beales

    Jason Smith have you been hoarding Muslims again? I was wondering where they all went.

  • A.D.M.

    Who here said the Gulags were a good thing, Jason? Who? Give me names. I want names. And Ruslan, nice history lesson. Unfortunately, folks like Jason don’t know much about it, especially since they think all Europeans are one monolithic group. Crazy.

  • Jason Smith

    There was an entire system of slave labor camps in the Soviet Union called Gulags. 40 million people were sent to the Gulags. Half of them died. Probably the worst were the gold mines of Kolyma in eastern Siberia. The goal of these Communists on this website is to turn America into a Communist state and send all normal, White, heterosexuals to Gulag slave labor camps. Leftists never admit the crimes of Communism. These sociopaths think it was a good idea.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    “So? What’s the point of this article?”

    Typical Jason for ya, “Duhhh, What’s the POINT of this article? I don’t understand!!! DERP!!!”

    ” We don’t want hoards of Muslims swarming into Europe.”

    “We?” Who is ‘we’? I’m pretty damned sure you’re American, hence not “European” in any practical sense. Moreover, Muslims have been in Europe for a long time buddy. Better get used to it. Also, who is “swarming” into Europe exactly?

    “Charles Martel stopped the Muslim advance in the 8th century.”

    Oh so you’re French then. Well Martel stopped the Moors’ advance only after they had conquered Spain.

    ” Our people fought them back for another 700 years and kicked them out of Spain. ”

    Wait, “your people” kicked them out of Spain? So are you Spanish, Basque, or Catalan? I thought you were French!

    “Our European ancestors stopped them at the Gates of Vienna in the 17th century.”

    Ok HOLD ON NOW! Now you are saying that you’re ancestors were Germans and Poles? Now how the hell can that be unless…OH WAIT! I just figured it out! You think all those diverse nationalities and cultures exist as some monolithic group called “the White race!” How profoundly ignorant. I wish I could see you go to Europe and try to claim all those nationalities as your “ancestors”; the reactions of ordinary people would be hilarious.

    Since you’re new on here, let me tell you what happens every time some Islamophobic coward comes in here and invokes “the Gates of Vienna.” I like to call it, “FUN FACTS” time.

    1. Muslims fought on the side of the Poles at the Battle of Vienna in 1683. Muslim Tatars were invited first into Lithuania(before the merging of Poland-Lithuania) in the late 14th century. Got that? INVITED INTO LITHUANIA. They enjoyed a high regard in Lithuania and later the Polish-Lithuanian kingdom for their cavalry skills and their feats at the Battle of Grunwald against some of your “White Heroes.”

    The kings of Poland, including Jan Sobieski III reaffirmed the right of the Muslim Tatars to practice their religion freely within the kingdom. The mere presence of those Tatars at Vienna helped exacerbate the tension between the Ottomans and their Crimean Tatar allies.

    2. The Ottoman Empire was always had plenty of Christian Europeans either allied to it or fighting for it. In the early days of Ottoman expansion, their armies had more Christians than Muslims. Serbian knights led by their Despot Stefan Lazarevic fought for Ottoman Sultan Beyazit II at the battle of Ankara. France was often an ally of the Ottoman Empire from time to time. In the Crimean War, France, Piedmont, and the UK allied with the Ottoman Empire against Christian Russia. Lastly, Germany and Austro-Hungary would do the same in WWI.

    So much for your idea of “white” Europe vs. monolithic Islam.

    ” I call upon all White heros to fight against the Muslim hoards.”

    Well since we don’t really have “whites” in Europe you’re going to be disappointed. We also don’t have “Muslim hoards.” I guess you meant “hordes”, but being much closer to that “horde” I can’t see what all your fuss is about. I’ve been going about my daily life surrounded by Muslims for years and haven’t had any problems.

    ” We must kick all Muslims out of Europe. ”

    Why? Did Muslims force a bunch of countries into an un-democratic union entity? Did Muslims push for neo-liberal economic policies, tax cuts, massive bailouts? I’m pretty sure they didn’t.

    “Once that happens, that will be a good thing.”

    Explain why. Show your work.

  • Philip

    I’m pretty sure the name SION will in no way become easily used by the Muslim Radicals to tie it to Zionism, Israel and Jews, and further anti-Semitic conspiracy theories in the Middle East.

    Hey Jason,

    What is ‘white?’ Are Albanians white? They have very light skin. So do the Lebanese!

    Oh, wait. They’re Muslims! That means they’re scum and they never accomplished anything, right?

  • Jason Smith

    So? What’s the point of this article? We don’t want hoards of Muslims swarming into Europe. Charles Martel stopped the Muslim advance in the 8th century.
