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

Breaking at Breitbart - today St. Louis, Missouri, tomorrow another city in another state. Contribute to this ad campaign - go here. "AFDI Rolls Out New Free Speech Billboard Campaign Featuring Muhammad Cartoon," Breitbart News, June 8, 2015 NEW YORK, June 8, 2015 The human rights advocacy group the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) has announced a new billboard campaign to defend the freedom of speech and stand up to violent intimidation.

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

This is yet another vicious hit piece from the Daily News, but I thought it worth posting because I was in extensive threat assessment meetings with the NYPD today, and they’re on the job. If the Islamic State wants to get to me, they’re going to have to go through the NYPD. “NYPD assessing ISIS threat to controversial blogger Pamela Geller,” by Nancy Dillon, Jason Silverstein, Rocco Parascandola and Corky Siemaszko, New York Daily News, May 6, 2015: The NYPD has been in touch with Manhattan resident Pamela Geller, who organized the controversial Prophet Muhammad drawing contest in Texas, about...

Just click on the video below. Follow me on instagram here and Twitter here and Facebook for my photos in real time. For the second time this year, free speech and religious liberties are colliding at Garland ISD’s Curtis Culwell Center. Religious liberties? How cynical. Religious liberty to silence free speech and impose draconian sharia speech restrictions on non-Muslims? The word liberty in describing supremacism is monstrously Orwellian. Opponents say...

A century of free speech in New York's most public square -- the streets, the buses, the subways -- came to a screeching halt today when the MTA voted to ban all issue and political advertising. The other topic of discussion, by the way, was the billions in debt the MTA was. The five public speakers, including myself (I'll have video shortly), all spoke in defense of free speech, opposing the ban. Every board member who spoke in the executive session, with the exception of Charles Moerdler, spoke in defense of free speech, that it was a craven sore loser... Continue reading

AFDI Wins Major Free Speech Victory as Federal Court Rules Anti-Hamas Ad Must Run While our Philly free speech win is still reverberating across the country, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) won an important victory for the freedom of speech today as a federal court ruled that New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) must run its ad criticizing Hamas and Islamic anti-Semitism on City buses. The media coverage is massive - New York Times, NY Daily News, ABC, NBC, NY Post, Jerusalem Post, The Daily Mail et al (scroll down). All of these news stories quote the ad... Continue reading

Another huge AFDI victory for freedom and individual rights. The ruling came down this morning. The Judge same down on our side on every point upholding the constitutional and beating back sharia restrictions on free speech. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled in our favor on our motion for a preliminary junction, which asked the court to enter an order requiring New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to run a “Hamas Killing Jews” advertisement on MTA buses. Money quote in the ruling, "The defendants’ theory is thoroughly unpersuasive." "The defendants contend that the... Continue reading

AFDI Winning Across America AFDI is in the news again this week. The Pennsylvania Transit Authority called a press conference Thursday and announced THEY WILL NOT APPEAL OUR WIN. Our ads of truth will hit the Philadelphia streets this week. PHILLY: Last week, my human rights organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), scored another major free speech victory in Philadelphia. The court ruled that our ads highlighting Islamic Jew-hatred and the Nazi-Islamic alliance, which had been previously denied, could not be prohibited. The judge ruled they had to run.

Now, in light of the huge number of submissions of Muhammad cartoons that we have received, we have decided to give a second prize: the People’s Choice Award. The contest... Continue reading

Reuters weighs in and consults Hamas in America -- CAIR. CAIR gets more publicity from our work than anything else they do. Always terror-tied CAIR is mentioned with none of the convictions, jihad terror ties or their co-conspirator designation in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation's history. The media unabashedly aligns with the jihad force. Further, they site the the purely subjective, partisan smear machine, the radical left Southern Poverty Law Center, a dangerous group that few take seriously outside of hard left circles. Why doesn't Reuters mention that SPLC members have targeted for assassination people and orgs... Continue reading

Here's the statement from our supreme legal team, notably, "“Across the country, we have successfully litigated cases where government transit authorities permit the Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations to run ads misleading the public about Jihad and Islamic Jew hatred. When our clients run ads exposing this Jew hatred, all of a sudden the transit authorities are worried about the ‘tone’ of the conversation and attempt to shut it down. A word of advice to government bureaucrats doing the Muslim Brotherhood’s bidding: we will sue you and you will lose. Act accordingly.” Federal Judge Orders... Continue reading

"U.S. Muslims group's newest Jew-hating ad," by Pamela Geller, WND, March 1, 2015: They are at it again. But so are we. The Islamic supremacist group American Muslims for Palestine, or AMP, is yet again libeling Israel and calling for it to be thrown to the jihadi wolves. And my organization, the human rights advocacy group American Freedom Defense Initiative, or AFDI, is once again countering them every step of the way. The AMP ad pictures Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu holding a sign, and it quotes Netanyahu, “America is a thing you can move very easily,” and adds: “Stop... Continue reading

"AFDI Rolls Out Ad Campaign to Expose Jewish Leaders Who Fund BDS," by Pamela Geller, Breitbart, March 2, 2015: On Sunday, I wrote, “It’s time to out the Jews who fund BDS.” And so now that is exactly what my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), is setting out to do. We have begun a new nationwide ad campaign to expose Jewish groups and leaders who are funding Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns. It is unbelievable but true: Jews in key leadership positions in American Jewish institutions are funding and supporting the most vicious Jew-hatred campaigns; BDS (the... Continue reading

"Jewish Leaders Funding BDS," by Pamela Geller, Breitbart, March 1, 2015: It’s time to out the Jews who fund BDS. The scandal of it cannot be overstated: Jewish leaders and philanthropists, including UJA-Federation President Alisa Doctoroff; Karen R. Adler, President of the Jewish Communal Fund and JCRC Board member; David Hochberg, Carole and Saul Zabar, Sally Gottesman, Edith Everett and others are prominent donors (p.26-27) to The New Israel Fund, an organization which funds BDS and other anti-Israel initiatives. Alisa Doctoroff hoisting cocktails with the NIF in her lavish apartment is no different from the uniformed Nazis who were invited... Continue reading

The media is concerned? Why? Muslims are peaceful, right? So what's the problem? And why does the media always use the word "prophet" before Muhammad? I never see the media insert "Our Lord and Savior" before Jesus Christ. So why would they call Muhammad their prophet? It's insidious and telling. As for the CAIR rep whining about it being offensive, I find Hamas-CAIR offensive. I find their terror ties offensive. I find their demands on free societies offensive. I find their defamation and libel against my colleagues and me offensive. So what? Contest For Cartoons of Prophet Muhammad Draws Concern,... Continue reading
