Pamela Geller: Islamophobia/Arabophobia

Pamela Geller’s Islamophobia has gotten so bad that she assumes the Arabic language is inherently “radical Islam” despite its existence well before Islam.  By this, she is implying that Arabs are only Muslims. I am not sure if Geller forgot or if she is plain ignorant but there are more Arab Christians in America than Arab Muslims:

Based on Zogby International Survey (200)

Not only does Geller exalt in her bigotry against Islam and Muslims (as the website LoonWatch has documented), but she is clearly manifesting her racist tendencies:

Good job, freedom lovers. You fought back against mandatory Arabic Classes in Public Schools in Texas.

“It shows how we mischaracterized, we willfully misunderstand Islam. Yes, on the face of it, yes, Arabic is a language. In a sense there would be no difference between opening a foreign language school — a Spanish language school or a french language school — but in fact Arabic is more than a language. It is explicated the language of Islam, so in that sense it is part of the Islamic religious imperial project. Radical Islam advances through the Arabic language. And you go all kinds of places that aren’t in the Arab world now, like Pakistan, Indonesia, Central Asia, the Balkans, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Canada and the United States, and you will here those Imams preaching in Arabic. Arabic is not just another language like French or Italian, it is the spearhead of an ideological project that is deeply opposed to the United States.”

In Geller’s post, she selectively quotes from Mandatory Arabic Classes in Public School In Texas, omitting the fact that Arabic is not only the language being taught at the school:

The University of Texas, working with the Mansfield district, identified Cross Timbers Intermediate as a target since 10 percent of the district’s Arabic-speaking population attends the South Arlington school.

“The federal government sees Arabic, Chinese and Russian as critical,” Escovedo said. “Our country has a deficit in Arabic speakers and people who understand the Arabic culture.”

The Mansfield district also offers Chinese and Russian, among other languages. Students may begin taking language classes in middle school to fulfill their high school requirement of two years of foreign language.

Geller does not make any comment about learning Russian, Chinese, or any other language, but for some reason, Arabic is the language of terrorists. So her logic, or as I like to call it the Gellerian/Spencerian logic is as follows:

1)       Muslims are Evil

2)      They speak  Arabic

3)      Arabic is Evil

The semi-coherent ramblings of the uber-racist Pam Geller once again, betray her false claims towards being an advocate of freedom, equality, and justice. For Geller, Arabic equals Islam and Islam equals total absolute evil and therefore by extension Arabic speakers are likewise evil.

Arabic is a rich, classical language like Latin and Greek, branding it as an ideology is beyond ridiculous, it is a call to prepetual ignorance where by Geller wishes to deprive the coming generations of an experience that not only will enrich their lives, increase their knowledge but will also prove useful in their future careers. In reality what she is afraid of is the normalization of Arabs and Muslims in American society, and she will go to any lengths to ghettoize the former.

  1. Maybe this experience will help educate Ms. Geller. She is wishing she had kept her dumb mouth shut, I am so sure. America is being educated, right now about the differences in the people’s of the earth. In a lot of southern states little to no information is given about other cultures. Some Americans with power want America to somehow become a theocracy and they are educating their children accordingly. It is tragic for our Nation. We are just now starting to have a National dialogue about this kind of educational manipulation/limitation placed on these people. It is the base of the TP’ers members. We need to really be talking about why we are inadequately educating our children? We have to ask the Educators of America to get very serious here. We must encourage education on these very important distinctions.

  2. Imams preaching in Arabic, in countries where Arabic is not the language of the country? Hasn’t she heard us Jews praying in Hebrew? Does she think that we all speak it? (Hint: we don’t.) Hasn’t she heard that the Catholic Mass was for centuries conducted in Latin, though Latin had become Romance languages before the start of the Middle Ages? Does she know that many Christians in Egypt pray in Coptic, not spoken in 1500 years? Or that the Ethiopian church prays in Ge’ez, not spoken for more than a thousand years? Or that Old Church Slavonic, not spoken since about the eighth century, is the language of prayer for some in the Eastern Church?

    Further hint: hell, no, she hasn’t heard any of this. It never occurs to racist xenophobes to learn anything. Knowledge would sully the purity of their sanctified hate.

  3. Does your site (Islamophobia Today) get sent to Geller? Well, I suppose that’s silly. She’d block it. She is a of many people who can’t learn.

  4. Even before the advent of Islam, the Arabs wrote poetry and held contests to see who could write the best. When the Qur-‘an was revealed a number of opponents to Islam contended that Muhammad was trying to write poetry himself hence the references to how he was not a poet. It is sad to think that someone such as Ms. Geller has to stoop to such a low level as to label Arabic an evil language.

  5. I wonder if she does math in I,II,III,IV,V-X,L,C,D,M? And the fractions! We would have never reached the moon without Arabic.

  6. This simply a disguise…. First we demonize the Arabs then when the terrorist state of Israel commits it’s atrocities against the rightfull owners of the lands thy steal we will think that hey it’s ok it’s only the Arabs who are suffering, and they probably did something to deserve it. Typical Zionist rhetoric.

  7. […] Pamela Geller: Islamophobia/Arabophobia […]

  8. She talks as if arabs are the worst of the lot or something.

    “The arabs murder all the christians and the moderate muslims”.

    Last time I checked, Taliban whernt arabs. As far as I know, it seems that most somalians(where al – shabaab exists) are blacks. Most pakistanis, where there are much fundamentalism arent arabs, now are they?And last time I checked, iranians are persians.

    And arabs arent victims of islamic fundamentalism?The Muslim Brothers carried out attacks against its own people, Pam. These whernt arabs?And how about the FLN in Algeria,the victims over there whernt arabs?How about the Fatah/Hamas – struggle?

    No, trust me, woman, I really want to know where you get this from.
