Here are links to Andrew Bostom’s and Diana West’s essays on the recent radio show dust-up (audio is here) between Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News sit-in-substitute, Laura Ingraham, and the most media-vilified number one target for jihad assassination in the entire United States of America – Pamela Geller.
I mean, whose side are these media people on? Who committed the atrocious act deserving of genuine outrage? Who was the real victim in Garland, Texas? The security officer who was shot – or Islam, represented by the two jihadis who drove one-thousand miles to kill as many people as they could? Over a cartoon. O-v-e-r a c-a-r-t-o-o-n. Well, it depends upon your understanding of what Islam is really about. We’ll get into that on down the page.
How many would have died, had not one brave cop shot both jihadis dead before they could get inside the building where the crowd was gathered?
You can’t have it both ways. You can’t say, “I support freedom of speech” out of one side of your mouth, followed by, “But insulting a religion just isn’t a good idea and it doesn’t help make things any better for any of us.” That idea very subtly and cleverly implies that Pamela Geller is the real villain and she is responsible responsible for causing the attempted mass murder.
So, this whole convoluted, upside down, inside out analysis by the afore-named broadcast media pundit begs a few questions:
What’s the problem? What’s the real problem? What’s the real problem that’s right in our faces and we refuse to acknowledge it? Is Pamela Geller’s cartoon contest the real problem?
I’ll tell you what the problem is not.
It’s not ISIS.
It’s not Al Qaida.
It’s not Boko Haram.
It’s not the Taliban.
It’s not Hamas.
It’s not Fatah.
It’s not any other specialized organization of jihadis you can name, one of which replaces the other as quickly as the news outlets can get another presidential broadcast ready, announcing that one group has been defeated and put to flight. We’re playing global Whack-A-Mole. So, what’s the problem?
Now I’ll tell you exactly what the problem is.
The problem is I-s-l-a-m – its doctrines and law – which are not to be questioned or repudiated in any way by any Muslim or by any Infidel – on pain of death.
Name one other religion in the world that inculcates a codified doctrine which mandates that anyone who questions, criticizes, mocks, abandons, or refuses to submit to it, is to be hunted down and killed. Ah, but you see I’ve already misled you here. Islam is not just a religion. It is an all-encompassing, totalitarian, theo-political contruct which regulates every facet of its followers’ lives.
It’s very difficult for me to listen to media icon after media icon, from Martha MacCallum to Alysyn Camerota, and now Laura Ingraham, attempting to back Pamela Geller into a corner, implying that she’s like a sort of child who misbehaved and did something for which she now deserves to be punished. I suggest that none of the three talk-show ladies afore-named has actually taken the time necessary to explore Islam’s violent history of conquest, Muhammad’s violent life and deeds, or what’s really in that Quran. And until they actually do find out what’s in those doctrines, they will remain clueless about what’s really happening to us. Lenin called such people useful idiots.
Pamela Geller is not the villain. She never fired a shot. She never advocated any form of violence against anyone. She sponsored a cartoon drawing contest, in violation of Muslim law. Not in violation of American law. In violation of Muslim law. The agents of Muhammad opened fire. Now they intend to finish the job, hunt her down – and kill her.
