NEW YORK, January 21: The global human rights coalition of Stop the Islamisation of Europe (SIOE), Stop the Islamization of America (SIOA) and the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) announced today that a new leader has taken the help of Stop the Islamisation of Germany (SIO Deutschland): human rights activist...

Is someone holding a gun to the heads of Western politicians, forcing them to state immediately after every Muslim terror attack that “Islam has nothing whatsoever to do with terror"? Who cares about whether Islam has or has not something to do with terror? The only people who care about Islam’s reputation are the so-called "moderate" Muslims who have been making excuses for jihad terror, and covering up for Islamic atrocities for centuries, while blaming Western foreign policy for their jihad. As for all the jihadist groups themselves, they couldn't care less about associating terrorism with Islam. In fact, jihadists... Continue reading

The cards are stacked against Islamic reformers in 2016. Even the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is encouraging a reformation in Islamic education and preaching, is currently facing a strong movement of discontent from Al Azhar's Islamic leadership. It is against the grain of Islam for Muslims to self-criticize, and those who do must constantly apologize and emphasize that they are not speaking about Islam the religion, but are speaking about the interpretation. This is because those who call for any reformation are automatically accused of apostasy by Muslim leadership. Islam resists and refuses to focus on self-criticism or... Continue reading

AFDI Geller Fellow Nonie Darwish explains what the President's true legacy is and will be: Only the future can tell the true legacy of any president, but since 2016 will be Obama’s last year in office, many are now speculating. Below are some points from the perspective of an American who was born and raised as a Muslim in the Middle East: Under the Obama presidency, Muslims, and in particular, the Muslim Brotherhood, were able to accomplish their dream of reestablishing the caliphate. Only a person familiar with Arab culture can see how much Obama’s behavior is in tune with... Continue reading

I am deeply humbled, deeply grateful. Thank you for your unwavering loyalty and support all these long years. Happy New Year, freedom lovers! WND EXCLUSIVE Pamela Geller named Woman of the Year 'If Obama wants to go to war against the American people, I say, bring it on' Backing down is not in Pamela Geller’s lexicon. In May 2015, Geller hosted an art exhibit and drawing contest featuring images of the Muslim prophet Muhammad. Her aim was to stand up for free speech by showing that Muslims could not intimidate non-Muslim Americans into following Shariah blasphemy laws, which prohibit any... Continue reading

AFDI Geller Fellow Nonie Darwish gives us a list of New Year's resolutions that every American should support: I wish Americans would stop using the word "racist." It is hostile, offensive, meaningless and vulgar. It is similar to the Islamic word "kafir" or infidel, designed to degrade and silence speech. I wish America would not shy away from teaching that all cultures and religions are not equal, especially in their adherence to values of human rights and individual freedoms. I wish America would reject any religion or ideology that commands the killing of apostates or members who leave it; such... Continue reading

AFDI Geller Fellow Nonie Darwish explains why Muslims always see themselves as victims, even when they're committing acts of violence: Islamic logic never ceases to astound most Americans. In these sensitive times, during which America is still mourning the San Bernardino massacre, Muslim groups from day one were seeking apologies from America for fear of a backlash. It appears that the more frequently barbarism is exhibited by Islamic terrorists, the more offended Muslims become. They seem to be more offended over Americans being appalled by violent Islamic terrorism than they are by Muslim terrorists. Even the attorneys representing the families... Continue reading

AFDI Geller Fellow Nonie Darwish explains the trouble with moderate Muslims: President Obama told CNN's Fareed Zakaria that 99.9 percent of Muslims are peace-loving and reject jihadist Islam. This is a common statement by many of the so-called "moderate Muslims" in my country of origin, Egypt. That statement is incorrect in many ways, and is designed to confuse Americans and save face of Muslims and their defenders. It is hard to believe that President Obama believes what he says about Islam, because the day Osama bin Laden was killed was a day of mourning all over the Muslim world. When... Continue reading

AFDI Geller Fellow Nonie Darwish explains why there should be a moratorium on immigration from Muslim countries: Islamic turmoil never fails to dominate the headlines, and the West is yet again split on how to deal with the polarizing issue of Islamic immigration. But liberals can no longer afford to be motivated by only political short-term goals expressed with the usual shouting, name-calling and emotion. This issue can really hurt liberal and progressive causes, as well as conservative causes. Looking at the big picture of relocating populations, the first thing that comes to mind is that it should benefit and... Continue reading

AFDI Geller Fellow Nonie Darwish explodes the prevailing myth that jihad terrorists generally grew up in "moderate" Muslim homes and then were somehow "radicalized": Where were the terrorists radicalized? Hmmmm... The media and law enforcement have been asking and investigating when and where the San Bernardino Muslim terrorist couple was radicalized. Was it before or after they met on line and got married? And who inspired them? Such questions imply that mainstream Islamic culture does not attempt to radicalize, and does not stress jihadist education and hatred of non-Muslims. They imply that the majority of Islamic schools and mosques in... Continue reading

AFDI Geller Fellow Nonie Darwish explains why several days passed after the San Bernardino jihad murders before any photo of jihad killer Tashfeen Malik was published: Most Americans are wondering why the photo of the female Muslim terrorist of the recent San Bernardino attack, Tashfeen Malik, was for several days after the attack withheld without explanation by the authorities. Some guessed that it is for the sake of preserving the integrity of the investigation. That is the only logical explanation to most Americans. But I am afraid there are other reasons that only people with deep knowledge of the Islamic... Continue reading

AFDI Geller Fellow Nonie Darwish explains why we won't see any uprising of Muslim women calling for basic human rights: Many in the West are hopeful that Islam will undergo a reformation at the hands of Muslim women. That it is just a matter of time before Muslim women will wise up, figure out what must be done, and stand together in unity to march for their equality and human rights. That’s what happened with non-Muslim feminists in the West, so why not in the Middle East? The answer is complicated, but unlike Western feminists, who had no legal obstacles... Continue reading

#Giving Tuesday is the global day to celebrate philanthropy. It's the perfect day to show your support for our fight for freedom. No one but AFDI is taking the fight to the enemies of freedom, challenging their steady encroachments on free speech and free expression. Emboldened in this age of Obama, the forces of darkness and hatred are working hard to erode the ability of free people to take a public stand against an increasingly authoritarian and oppressive left. Lots of people are talking about the American left's ever-growing hatred for America and opposition to freedom -- but only at... Continue reading

AFDI Geller Fellow Nonie Darwish speculates on the likelihood that we will not be rid of Barack Obama on January 20, 2017: President Obama started his presidency with a lack of confidence in America as an exceptional nation bringing hope and goodness to the world. He mocked Christians, the Bible and those who support the Second Amendment even as far back as 2006. In the meantime, he shamelessly defended Islam with every fiber of his being, even after horrific acts of Islamic terrorism on Americans. Both abroad and internally, Obama never demanded an apology from his attorney general, Erick Holder,... Continue reading

AFDI Geller Fellow Nonie Darwish weighs in on the futility of relying on "moderate Muslims," on which the entire West is betting its future: One of the reasons that the so-called “moderate Muslims” have become irrelevant and incapable of helping themselves or the West against Islamic terrorism is that over the centuries they have become tolerant of Islamic terrorism and considered it as part of normal life. Average Muslims have been led to believe that they are victims of the outside world and not Islam, and that is why many are either silent or sympathize with jihadists and even terrorists...

When the Charlie Hebdo capitulators were asked about our cartoon and art event, they rejected the comparison. They said, "She Is obsessed by Islam." Not so. I am obsessed with freedom. And the biggest threat to our freedom is jihad and sharia. Charlie Hebdo cartoonists and writers were obsessed with insulting people and religion. But I don't put them down for that. Freedom of speech for all, I say. They've surrendered and attack me -- how brave and honorable. WND EXCLUSIVE Pamela Geller: 'Jihadists won' war on Charlie Hebdo The decision by the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo to stop... Continue reading

We are taking our free speech fight to the Supreme Court. AFDI vs. Boston's transit authority. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s (MBTA) refused to our two pro-Israel/anti-jihad advertisements on their buses. Yes, Boston. The MBTA claimed it was demeaning to Muslims - as if all Muslims were Jew haters and jihadists. Wait, it get's worse. The Boston has allowed to run and continues to run vicious anti-semitic ads. Libels and lies against Israel. Let us step back for a moment and review. Imagine this, in a city repeatedly wracked by Islamic terror attacks --the blood of its citizens stain the...

Despite the ongoing threats to kill us and the need for a army of security, the work continues. We wull not be silenced and we will not submit. After we submitted our free speech ad featuring the winning cartoon from our Texas Muhammad art exhibit, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority suspended “all issue-oriented” ads on the D.C. Metro system through the end of 2015. WMATA has submitted to the assassin’s veto. >It's an end-run around the First Amendment. The Washington Transit Authority banned “political ads” after AFDI submitted our free speech campaign. No contemporary medium of communication may pass... Continue reading

The depraved media, i.e., Reuters, has tried to distract and obfuscate the real story here -- ISIS and their devout followers in America are targeting for death Americans on our home soil. I have been targeted for assassination twice in just four weeks. The headline Reuters ran, “Activist says Boston beheading plot targeted her; police express doubt," is false and vicious. The NY Times hasn't even run the story, but did run three stories about a Muslima supremacist's whining complaint (since proven false) that the reason she could only get a full cup of Diet Coke and not an unopened...

Targeted by ISIS for Assassination: ‘It Won’t Stop with Me’ By Pamela Geller, Breitbart, June 5, 2015 Now that it has come to light that Boston jihadis Usaama Rahim and Dawud Sharif Abdul Khaliq were plotting to behead me, the mainstream media is in full panic mode, tying to deny the plot against me and downplay its significance. The media wants to make it all about Pamela Geller – “controversial,” “provocative,” “inciteful” – as if they think that if they get rid of me, they are rid of the problem. The media has been avoiding reality since 9/11, and now... Continue reading

Here is my debate with Laura Ingraham’s defense of the indefensible — submitting to the sharia restrictions on free speech. She was so hostile and entrenched that she abused her role as host to ignore or attempt to drown out my arguments. She comes off rather badly, but her bullying may go over well with RINOs and conservatives who share her defeated views. Side note — she says she opposed the Ground Zero mosque, but that was after she supported it. She was for it before she was against it. And she never had me on the show to discuss... Continue reading
