They Don't like Truth about Radical Islam Either

Pam Geller’s lat­est batch of bus ads in response to more “divest­ment” ads against Israel is gen­er­at­ing an awful lot of anger:

I would like my D6 bus with­out a side of Hitler, please.

City Desk

The pic­ture of Hitler plas­tered on the side of D.C. buses arrived this week and, as expected, the out­rage over them con­tin­ues to pour in.

The Times of Israel

Jonathan Carey, founder and exec­u­tive direc­tor of BlueS­tar, a San Francisco-​based Israel advo­cacy and pub­lic rela­tions orga­ni­za­tion, believes Geller’s ads will only end up offend­ing and alien­at­ing people.

“I don’t think any­one fol­low­ing the news would be sur­prised about rad­i­cal Islam, but this is not some­thing for a poster in the pub­lic realm,” he told The Times of Israel.


The Raw Story

An orga­ni­za­tion run by an anti-​Mulsim blog­ger has pur­chased bill­boards on the sides of twenty Wash­ing­ton DC Metro buses fea­tur­ing Adolph Hitler and call­ing for an end to ‘all aid to Islamic coun­tries.’

Inter­na­tional Busi­ness Times

An anti-​Islamic orga­ni­za­tion that plans to use Adolf Hitler as the face of an anti-​Islamic ad cam­paign on Wash­ing­ton DC metro buses has stirred up controversy.

and the Huff­in­g­ton Post

The Coun­cil on American-​Islamic rela­tions has spo­ken out against Geller’s pic­tures, call­ing it a pro­pa­ganda cam­paign “designed to incite hatred against Amer­i­can Muslims”.

In defence of the Wash­ing­ton Post they at least had a 2nd arti­cle with a fair sum­mary of why the ads went up.

It began when the Amer­i­can Mus­lims for Pales­tine (AMP) launched bus ads dur­ing the April Cherry Blos­som Fes­ti­val con­demn­ing U.S. aid to Israel because of that country’s con­tin­u­ing occu­pa­tion of Pales­tin­ian territories.

Then on Mon­day (May 19), Pamela Geller’s Amer­i­can Free­dom Defense Ini­tia­tive coun­tered by deploy­ing 15-​foot-​long ads on 20 buses in the Wash­ing­ton, D.C., sys­tem that equate oppo­si­tion to Israel’s poli­cies with Nazism. One ad shows the grand mufti of Jerusalem meet­ing Hitler dur­ing World War II.

The con­tro­ver­sial adver­tise­ment, which will be dis­played in about 20 metro buses, shows Hitler meet­ing with anti-​Jewish Islamic leader Haj Amin al-​Husseini dur­ing World War II.

Read those arti­cles, you’ll see they say a lot about Pam’s ads, how they’re “inflam­ma­tory”, unhelp­ful, some call them racist (is Islam a race?) but there is one term that they haven’t used to describe these ads.

False

It is inter­est­ing how the media never look into what is said in the ad – that Islamic Jew-​hatred is in the Quran or that two-​thirds of all U.S. aid goes to Islamic coun­tries. No. They just obsess over my unmit­i­gated gall to repeat it. It’s my say­ing it that’s the prob­lem. The truth is the prob­lem.

And don’t for­get these ads were reac­tive. They were placed to answer ads run against Israel. If those ads had not run, these ads would not either.

The left will never for­give Pam for say­ing this truth aloud, par­tic­u­larly in a way that gets peo­ple ask­ing ques­tions, because CAIR’s façade can’t stand up to the truth.

What would we do with­out her and Robert Spencer?

Pam Geller’s latest batch of bus ads in response to more “divestment” ads against Israel is generating an awful lot of anger:

I would like my D6 bus without a side of Hitler, please.

An organization run by an anti-Mulsim blogger has purchased billboards on the sides of twenty Washington DC Metro buses featuring Adolph Hitler and calling for an end to ‘all aid to Islamic countries.’

International Business Times

An anti-Islamic organization that plans to use Adolf Hitler as the face of an anti-Islamic ad campaign on Washington DC metro buses has stirred up controversy.

and the Huffington Post

The Council on American-Islamic relations has spoken out against Geller’s pictures, calling it a propaganda campaign “designed to incite hatred against American Muslims”.

In defence of the Washington Post they at least had a 2nd article with a fair summary of why the ads went up.

It began when the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) launched bus ads during the April Cherry Blossom Festival condemning U.S. aid to Israel because of that country’s continuing occupation of Palestinian territories.

Then on Monday (May 19), Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative countered by deploying 15-foot-long ads on 20 buses in the Washington, D.C., system that equate opposition to Israel’s policies with Nazism. One ad shows the grand mufti of Jerusalem meeting Hitler during World War II.

The controversial advertisement, which will be displayed in about 20 metro buses, shows Hitler meeting with anti-Jewish Islamic leader Haj Amin al-Husseini during World War II.

Read those articles, you’ll see they say a lot about Pam’s ads, how they’re “inflammatory”, unhelpful,  some call them racist (is Islam a race?) but there is one term that they haven’t used to describe these ads.

False

It is interesting how the media never look into what is said in the ad – that Islamic Jew-hatred is in the Quran or that two-thirds of all U.S. aid goes to Islamic countries. No. They just obsess over my unmitigated gall to repeat it. It’s my saying it that’s the problem. The truth is the problem.

And don’t forget these ads were reactive.  They were placed to answer ads run against Israel.  If those ads had not run, these ads would not either.

The left will never forgive Pam for saying this truth aloud, particularly in a way that gets people asking questions, because CAIR’s facade can’t stand up to the truth.

What would we do without her and Robert Spencer?
