Pam Geller, author and owner of the popular Atlas Shrugs website is being attacked yet again, and the demented Norway killer, Anders Behring Breivik, was the perfect excuse for the Left to let loose. Geller drives them crazy. She is accused of being an inspiration for Breivik, and of receiving and printing an email from him years ago (which she denies). Anytime the truth of Islamic jihad is spoken on the Internet, you can bet someone is looking to find Geller’s name attached. See a video below.
Along with Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch, Geller founded “Stop Islamization of America (SIOA).” She has had a high profile in fighting against the Ground Zero mosque, and has organized with Spencer numerous protests and rallies in New York City. All-in-all, she is the favorite target of progressive bloggers. She makes their day.
With the news of the Norway bombing and shooting spree, Pam was only one of us who reported on the Utoya Island Youth Camp and what kind of camp it was. It was a camp where children, the day before the shooting, held up a “Boycott Israel” sign when the majority party’s foreign minister visited the camp and strolled among them. They demanded statehood for Palestine – teenagers who knew nothing of life and death around the world, or what the Israelis face daily at the hands of Palestinians, until Breivik brought his evil to that beautiful island and killed 77 of them.
Earlier in the week the politically-active kids played a war game – Break the Blockade, out there in the beautiful waters, in their raft, playing at the politics of the Israeli blockade of ships into Gaza. Why would Israel block those ships? Because Israel’s enemies have successfully transported weapons into the area to be used against them. The United Nations does nothing in support of Israel, yet…yet in July 2011 they declared the blockade is legal. It was legal before July 2011. It has been legal for years. Do you think the parents of these camp kids told their children the facts? No, I don’t either.
These kids would have Israeli’s die and deny them the right to protect themselves. Where does that kind of ideology come from? It’s anti-semitism. It’s a terrible thing to do to children.
So Pam reported the fact that the camp was more than a bit political. I reported that Palestinian Youth organization, Fatah Youth, has traveled to Norway and joined with the Norwegian Youth Camp members for 15 years prior, but were not on the island this year.
Geller went to great lengths to tell of similar youth camps here in the U.S. in past years. She in no way excused Anders Behring Breivik, the killer, but do a search for “pam geller anders behring breivik,” and watch the lies develop.
Geller founded “Stop the Islamization of America” along with Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch. They have worked closely with the families of victims of September 11, 2001, and residents of New York City in a high profile effort to stop the Ground Zero mosque. Pamela has been vocal and public in her stand against Islamic jihad. She has never advocated violence, but she is fierce in the call for Americans to understand the threat of jihad in this country, and I thank her for it. Progressives are apoplectic
The last part of the Breivik story and Geller is an email she received in 2007 and printed anonymously on her blog, Atlas Shrugs. She clearly says Breivik is not the author. Here’s the email.
I [Geller] am running an email I received from an Atlas reader in Norway. It is devastating in its matter-of-factness.
“Well, yes, the situation is worsening. Stepping up from 29 000 immigrants every year, in 2007 we will be getting a total of 35 000 immigrants from somalia, iran, iraq and afghanistan. The nations capital is already 50% muslim, and they ALL go there after entering Norway. Adding the 1.2 births per woman per year from muslim women, there will be 300 000+ muslims out of the then 480 000 inhabitants of that city.
Orders from Libya and Iran say that Oslo will be known as Medina at the latest in 2010, although I consider this a PR-stunt nevertheless it is their plan.
From Israel the hordes clawing at the walls of Jerusalem proclaim cheerfully that next year there will be no more Israel, and I know Israel shrugs this off as do I, and will mount a strike during the summer against all of its enemies in the middle east. This will make the muslims worldwide go into a frenzy, attacking everyone around them.
We are stockpiling and caching weapons, ammunition and equipment. This is going to happen fast.
Before, I thought about emigrating to Britain, Israel, USA, South Africa, etc. for taxes and politics, but instead (although I believe we are the very last generation on earth before the return of God) I will stay and fight for the right to this country and indeed the entire peninsula, for the God-fearing people, just in case this isn’t the end of the world after all. Doesn’t hurt to have a backup plan.
It’s far from impossible to achieve, after all my people has done it every time before, in feats that match the ancient greek, hebrew and british “legends”.
Oslo and the southeast may fall easily, but there are other lines than “state”-borders drawn across this country since long before there was even a single muslim in the world, and we have held them this long, against everyone else too. We are entering a new golden age for my people, and those of a handful other countrys, but only through struggle.
Never fear, Pamela. God is with you too in this coming time.”
Geller edited the posting of this email on her website shortly after the murders and removed the sentences in green text above. Here is her statement about the edit:
After the massacre in Norway last week, I removed the following sentence from the email, as I found it insensitive and inappropriate: “We are stockpiling and caching weapons, ammunition and equipment. This is going to happen fast.”
The sentence I edited is not an incitement to anything. It refers to self-defense, but I removed it in the light of recent horrific events in Norway. I thought it insensitive. Nothing more.
Breivik, in his deranged mind, was waging his own counter insurgency against what he saw as a Muslim invasion in Norway, and especially in Oslo…
Breivik did not write the letter.
According to Geller, Breivik footnoted a couple of Geller posts in his 1500 page manifesto, although you will find convoluted assertions on the Internet that Breivik praised her. He did not. It’s too complicated to explain, but those assertions are taken as Breivik’s own words, when in fact Breivik quoted blogger Fjordman who’s words could not be characterized as “praise,” not that it matters. The closest explanation I’ve found comes from the first commenter, “he who scoffs at danger” in this egregious blog post on Geller and Breivik. And this one one takes it to the next level. Please read it if you have any doubts about Geller. Read the screed from the New York Times.
The takeaway of this story is: the Left in the blogosphere will take every opportunity to attack those who stand vigil against Islamic jihad, and support Israel. It’s just that simple. It’s even simpler that those passing on rumors of any Geller support for Breivik are irresponsible morons.
By the way, Pamela has a new book being released on September 6th, designed to be used at the grassroots level to teach activists how to fight intrusive Islamic initiatives in our own communities. Read more here. I’ll have more after I receive my copy.
The audio below is Pam’s interview with JAZ McKay on 1560KNZR about Breivik and claims of her connection. UPDATE: 8-7-11 This article linked by Pam Geller. Read her newest commentary and see an intriguing video here.
