FP: Pamela Geller, welcome to Frontpage Interview.
Congratulations on your new book.
The title is quite provocative. How come?
Geller: Well, Jamie, the very name evokes a visceral reaction in people — particularly in those hard-wired for delusion. But that is exactly what is happening. My organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative and its Stop Islamization of America program is a human rights entity dedicated to the freedom of speech, which is under attack, as well as to the freedom of religion and to individual rights. These are basic, fundamental principles of the American republic, and they are in danger of being stripped away and seized from us. This book is dedicated to keeping that from happening.
