Washington DC: Geller is back with another anti-Islam Metro ad

Washington DC: Geller is back with another anti-Islam Metro ad

In 2012, anti-Islam blogger Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative funded ads throughout the Metro system with a quote from the Quran next to a photo of the burning Twin Towers. Ads that cost Metro $35,000 over a failed effort to block them.

Now she’s back with another awful ad, this one claiming that “Islamic jew-hatred” is “in the Quran” as a response to an ad about “Israel’s occupation” from the American Muslims for Palestine. From Geller’s blog:

The DC Metro transit authority made multiple demands for the substantiation of every claim in our ads before they would accept the ad, and I, of course, happily provided that substantiation. The libelous American Muslims for Palestine antisemitic ad (below) did not have to provide substantiation. The MTA had no problem with their antisemitism. And you cannot provide evidence of a smear and a bigoted lie. But it is proof of the AMP’s hate.

Our ads are in response to the vicious Jew-hating ads that American Muslims for Palestine unleashed on Washington, DC Metro buses last month. And might I add, had we not sued and won in NYC and DC for violating our First Amendment rights when they tried to refuse our previous ads, our ads might never have gone up. 

Because of the 2012 court ruling stating that Geller’s ads are protected speech, a Metro spokesperson said they declined to challenge them this time around. But they do sport the disclaimer: “This is a paid advertisement sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative. Advertising space is a designated public forum and does not imply WMATA’s endorsement of any views expressed.”

For the uninitiated, here’s a description of Geller from the Southern Poverty Law Center, which labeled her Stop Islamization of America foundation a hate group:

Pamela Geller is the anti-Muslim movement’s most visible and flamboyant figurehead. She’s relentlessly shrill and coarse in her broad-brush denunciations of Islam and makes preposterous claims, such as that President Obama is the “love child” of Malcolm X. She makes no pretense of being learned in Islamic studies, leaving the argumentative heavy lifting to her Stop Islamization of America partner Robert Spencer. Geller has mingled comfortably with European racists and fascists, spoken favorably of South African racists, defended Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic and denied the existence of Serbian concentration camps. She has taken a strong pro-Israel stance to the point of being sharply critical of Jewish liberals.

  1. stupid jew sympathizers

  2. Sick sick woman

  3. End every last penny of U.S. foreign aid worldwide.

  4. Closest it comes is being in the current jelly that is Pamela Geller’s brain.

  5. Anti-something hatred is in every holy book.

  6. The torah is far more critical of Jews than the quran is.

  7. doesnt this bitch know when to quit?

  8. Anti gentile jew racism is in the talmud and torah. Jews have never gotten along with anybody else ever. Pam jew geller is brainwashing gullible gentiles

  9. asshat – Many Jews are ashamed of this.

  10. Why is it legal to lie on the side of a bus in a way that adds to hatred?

  11. Interesting. It wasn’t Muslims who expelled Jews from Spain.

  12. “Jehovah created the non Jew in human form that the Jew would not have to be serve by Beast. The non Jew is consequently an Animal in human form, and commanded to serve the Jew day and night”. Midrach Talpioth,P225-L

    What’s more racism than this?

  13. I’m ashamed of some of the Muslims in the comments section. Remember Saffiya Peace Be Upon Her was ethnically jewish wife of the Prophet Muhammad RA. Many Jews including Norman Finklestein whose grandparents perishede in the Holocaust despise religious based nationalism including Israel.

    You are not welcome to this group or representative of Muslims, especially in the West.

  14. Seems implausible, given that Islam is an Abrahamic religion that proceeded from Judaism. And not a single citation from the Quran as evidence? What B.S.

  15. Cough *andulus*

  16. She seriously never gets tired of listening to herself talk, does she? smh

  17. Jews are almost asking for it with this type of behaviour depicted by the one and only Hollywood harlot pemella geller. This jewish harlot tried to speak against halal meat. Did she know her kosher meat is just the same? Daughter of a whore.

  18. And I just heard a Christian pastor that supports Zionism say that 2/3rds of the Jews will go to hell? There is a difference between Tribes of Abraham, and just the idea of Jews in general. Over the years they have made Jewish religion and people combined into a race thing. It’s all very complicated. Historically, Muslims and our prophet(sallalahu alahe wa Salam) had problems with Jews but these Jews were astray and not following the way of Abraham and Moses(May Peace be upon them). Also it was not all Jews. The Prophet (saw) of Islam had a Jewish wife that he adored.

  19. people should feel sorry for her mental condition rather than panning her on her silly statements and secondly her family should think about getting her a good health insurance cuz her way of thinking might cause her a serious brain trauma one day who know !!!

  20. LOL, just look at this pic :

    Jews – Muslim together in PEACE

  21. I’m a practicing Christian, and I know in history, Jews were persecuted ruthlessly in Europe, largely because of the Church’s poor understanding of Scripture references, and its doctrine that “the Jews killed Christ”. The Islamic world was almost a paradise for Jews in comparison to historic Europe: There were no pogroms, ghettos, or Inquisition, and Jews could carry on their businesses, religion, education, and so on. This doesn’t sound like “Jew-hatred” is intrinsic to Islam, any more than Zionism and believing all unbaptized Jews are headed for Hell is intrinsic to anything but right-wing Christianity!

  22. She needs a class, someone needs to school her about when the Muslims and the Jews came together to defend themselves united.

  23. Not only is this disgraceful bit I can’t believe a city government would actually accept this “advertising” on their buses!

  24. Another propaganda. :/

  25. history says that they executed many christian too you know ..
    we muslim welcome every people in as long as they cannot harm our aqidah and our peace ..

  26. Why don’t you protest? Go to the media or something FB ain’t enough.

  27. Ill bet this add leads to some shahadas though lol :) islamophobic propaganda usually back fires and just leads to people investigating

  28. It must be a miserable existence for those who are so full of hate.

  29. Joel Carr The reason why I’m asking is bcz I asked myself first so duhhh!!! But I can’t do this alone, everyone should speak out.

  30. I’m sorry but werent the Nazis christians ?

  31. She is obviously an illiterate idiot, and so is anyone here who puts down other people’s beliefs period

  32. Right. So if Nazis call themselves Christians and murder Jews, don’t worry, they aren’t REAL Christians, but if some Muslim countries are anti-Jewish, let’s make up BS about all Muslims. Disgusting woman.

  33. Does Geller realise she’s inciting the inter-religious hatred she claims to fight? Or is she really that stupid?

  34. Interesting since I was born into a Shia family (I’m actually an atheist) and have a Jewish given name (Well, it’s Abrahamic, as is Islam).

  35. Are you frickin kidding me???????????????

  36. That’s how demagogism works. Fight it with reason, not with hatred!

  37. Iam so against violence but someone seriously needs to slap this piece of S@&!…

  38. Its not in the Quran but we hate zionists as much as the americans love them.

  39. Calling Godwin on this one…..Geller forfeits.

  40. Thanks for your Quranic authority, Ms. Pamela. We appreciate your expertise. (not)

  41. Well… That’s new O_o So, slightly off topic, does anyone else think that if Christians made 9/11 happen, a lot of the world would be anti-Christian right now? All this hate toward Muslims seriously feels fueled by a few extremists claiming to be followers of Islam. Personally, I am not a Muslim, so maybe I’m more curious around the cause of this unneeded hate, but hating people just because their different is wrong.

  42. stupid propaganda…

  43. You have to REALLY stupid to believe in this sort of propaganda. It isn’t the Jewish people who are being persecuted nowadays. And as far as I concerned no religion beats Christianity when it comes to committed the worst horrors against innocent people.

  44. She’s a wacko !!!

  45. Notice the “Aid” portion there. In their racism they totally jump to conclusions without understanding few things hurt muslims countries more than “Aid” to them.

  46. While Islamists and left-wingers cry over bus ads, a pregnant Sudanese Christian faces death for leaving Islam.

  47. I won’t defend the mufti of Palestine, but I will say that Mohammed V of Morocco was very defiant of Vichy France’s demand to turn over Moroccan and non-Moroccan Jews during WWII. Geller, they ain’t all alike woman!

  48. 2:63 of the Quran, All Muslim,Christian, and Jews shall have their reward in heaven. (I know it isn’t the whole verse). That sounds like hatred to me.

  49. Muslims should stand up in the Media and be open to discussion when these types of news arises. The World needs to listen to them not to some journalists who pretend to know Islam when in fact they don’t even know it’s simple definition. Islam means peace and surrender to God’s will.

  50. Pam Geeler continues to use the pic of the Mufti of Jerusalem with Hitler, she really needs to educate herself about the mufti before using that pic as a propaganda tool:

  51. oh, one does not need to search long for antisemitic surah. let start with anti-semitic and anti-CHristian Surah al Fatihah. Surah 3:54 – quran agrees with christians that JEws killed Jesus:)
