Updated : Pamella Geller Apparently Believes The NYT Is Antisemitic Due To Its Report On Cancer & Jewish Women
Here’s a quote Right Wing Watch pulled from something she wrote at World Net Daily, which is one of the few places even more insane than her stupid blog.
On the first night of Chanukah, the New York Times indulged in its grotesque penchant for its special brand of subtle, sophisticated Jew-hatred, on the front page - of course.
Not only did the New York Times publish a nipple on the front page (a first) next to a tattooed Jewish star, but the article is all about the cancerous Jews. Front page stuff, don’t you know? All the Jews that are fit to libel in print:
While poor countries struggle to provide even basic cancer care to women, wealthier societies like Israel and the United States are increasingly using sophisticated technologies to identify those at greatest risk in an effort to thwart the disease before it gets started. [emphasis hers]
Front page. It’s really vile - disgusting. A tattooed (tattoos are a violation of Jewish law) Jewish star above a nipple as the image for the “Jews’ genetic predisposition to cancer.” Jews = cancer. Jews were tattooed and naked when they were killed in concentration camps. The Times must be taking its talking points from Iran.
I have a feeling that Geller has a very activate imagination. I just read the New York Times article and there’s nothing remotely antisemitic about it. No where does it demonize Jews or equate Jews or Judaism with Cancer. Also why would antisemitic bigots show any concern for Jewish Women, especially Jewish Israeli women? That would be especially true for anyone who would support rounding up Jews and mass murdering them like the Nazis did.
If Geller is so concerned about demonetization, she should read her own writings. She, along with her Fellow Wingnut, Robert Spencer have done far more to demonize Muslims, than that New York Times article about the very real problem of Breast Cancer in Israel, which didn’t demonize Jews at all. Geller on the other hand, has done an excellent Job of demonizing Muslims.
Earlier this year Imagine 2050 reported on one of her group’s recent ad campaigns.
Over the past several weeks, advertisements featuring images of the September 11 terrorist attacks, Al-Qaeda representatives, and other Islamic extremists have been displayed in public transportation stations and buses in several U.S. cities including Washington D.C., Chicago, and San Francisco.
The ads also feature direct quotes attributed to the pictured extremists saying such things as, “killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah” and “The first thing we are calling you to is Islam.” The ads are a blatant misrepresentation and attempt to slander Islam and Muslims. Unsurprisingly, the ads were commissioned by notorious Islamophobes Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer via their American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI).
The ads are a direct response to the ongoing #MyJihad ad campaign that debuted in cities last December. Initially, AFDI’s ads were nearly identical to the ads it opposes.
A legal battle forced AFDI to redesign its ads and refrain from using the “#MyJihad” phrase. Even so, the ads remain remarkably similar in design. AFDI’s ads only differ due to subtle changes to wording and border colors.
And here’s a picture of some of the ads she designed that was featured in the Imagine 2050 report.
Remember Geller attacks anything that even remotely portrays Islam or Muslims in a positive light. Complaining about “1,001 Inventions: Discover the Golden Age of Muslim Civilization,” exhibit created by National Geographic, she wrote,
Sharia enforcement extends far beyond the obvious attempts to silence critics of jihad and sharia. The scrubbing of the 270 million victims of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations, and enslavements from academic texts has been going on for well over a decade. The demonization and smearing of politicians who dare speak against the most extreme and radical ideology on the face of the earth is virtually automatic at this point, as is the self-enforcing sharia compliance of the mainstream media.
Pamela Geller also attacked TLC’s All American Muslim reality show and basically outright denied that Islamophobia ( bigotry against Muslims ) which the show was designed to combat, even exists.
The premise behind the creation of the show is the fictional construct “Islamophobia.” “All-American Muslim” is designed to counter “Islamophobia” by showing Muslims who aren’t terrorist monsters, but ordinary people living ordinary lives, balancing tradition and modern life, dealing with their families, their jobs, etc.
Yet based on the most recent FBI statistics, hate crimes against Muslims are at record lows - the lowest since 9/11. Contrast that to the record highs in anti-Semitic attacks against the Jewish people; so where’s TLC’s Jewish family series?
Left-wing sites are shamelessly pushing, promoting and propagandizing the new “All-American Muslim” show. The dhimmi Jew Alyssa Rosenberg urged viewers to watch the show, writing at Think Progress: “Normally, I would never tell you to watch something just because it would make someone mad. But noted Islamophobe Pamela Geller is apparently vexed that TLC’s ‘All-American Muslim,’ a new reality show about a group of Muslim families in Dearborn, Mich., doesn’t achieve what she thinks of as balance, by which she means including story lines where Muslims commit crimes based on their faith.”
In addition to the creeping sharia/Stealth Jihad nonsense, Both Geller and Spencer have also spread the “Taqyya Is Lying For Islam,” myth.
However what Taqiyya really is, lying to save your life when you’re being persecuted by people who just may end up murdering you, if they find out about your true faith. According to Encyclopedia Britannica,
taqiyyah, in Islam, the practice of concealing one’s belief and foregoing ordinary religious duties when under threat of death or injury. Derived from the Arabic word waqa (“to shield oneself”), taqiyyah defies easy translation. English renderings such as “precautionary dissimulation” or “prudent fear” partly convey the term’s meaning of self-protection in the face of danger to oneself or, by extension and depending upon the circumstances, to one’s fellow Muslims. Thus, taqiyyah may be used for either the protection of an individual or the protection of a community. Moreover, it is not used or even interpreted in the same way by every sect of Islam. Taqiyyah has been employed by the Shīʿites, the largest minority sect of Islam, because of their historical persecution and political defeats not only by non-Muslims but also at the hands of the majority Sunni sect..
In addition The British Council Of Ex Muslims, which counts Maryam Namazie as a member and is hardly a pro Islam organization ( which you might have guessed just by the name alone ) has attacked them and the rest of the “Counter Jihad” on this, as well as their belief that all the violent verses in the Qur’an and Hadith Literature abrogate the peaceful ones, and thus the idea that “any good Muslim is terrorist and hates Infidels.”
This is nothing like her and her supporters expect us to believe Taqiyya is. Such as this guy which sounds just as paranoid and Islamophobic as she does. This is what “The Bottom Line Guy,” Claims Taqiyya is, contrary to much more reputable sources.
Taqiyya (“al Taqiyya”) is the Muslims’ license to lie to infidels in order to camouflage Islam’s holy war strategy (jihad) to conquer the world. The strategy mentioned through orders and solicitations in the Quran 3:28 and other Islamic writings and reference applies to all Western countries and against all infidels(non-muslims). (1)
Taqiyya is of fundamental importance in Islam. Practically every Islamic sect agrees to it and practices it … We can go so far as to say that the practice of taqiyya is mainstream in Islam, and that those few sects not practicing it diverge from the mainstream … Taqiyya is very prevalent in Islamic politics, especially in the modern era. (2)
In reality as my sources have pointed out, not only is it not lying for Islam, its not even a part of Sunni Islam. Its a Shia concept only. So its hardly even a major teaching of Islam. People like “The Bottom Line Guy,” and Geller are not people we should get our information from, especially when it comes to Islam or Muslims.
Let’s also not forgot how Geller reacted to the recent overblown NSA Spying Scandal.
Yet Geller Expects us to believe it is the New York Times which is demonizing a minority, not her or “counter jihad” bigots like her.

By the way, here’s something I just remembered. If Geller really cared so much about antisemitism, she’d be willing to condemn this. Chicago-Based Racist & Anti-Semite Organizes “Freedom of Speech” Event….. Waiting…. Oh of course she won’t do that because ACT! For America is a “Counter Jihad” group, and its a major player in the “counter jihad,” war on Muslims. I can guarantee you that Geller and Spencer will never condemn that event, even long after it occurred. But than again, I guess antisemitism is okay as long its being promoted by people who are against the “even greater evil” of Islam. If all this doesn’t tell you about the true nature of the “counter jihad” movement nothing will. Its a movement that is dedicated to demonizing Muslims and taking their rights away, above everything else, and its major supporters are willing to join forces with people who hate and want to destroy other groups of people, even if they’re people they claim to be defending.
I’m willing to give a hundred dollars to anyone who can find a single condemnation of Eli James and Act For America on either Atlas Shrugs ( Geller’s Blog ) or Jihad Watch ( Spencer’s Blog ). You will not find it.
