Pamela Geller has been speaking out for years about the dangers of the political ideology which drives Muslim societies and cultures and especially Islamic countries, known as Sharia, or Sharia law. The message she delivers and the style in which she does it inspires fierce loyalty and also fierce hatred, with large numbers in each group.
Geller, of course, is the creator, publisher and editor of the popular blog Atlas Shrugs, and is the executive director of American Freedom Defense Initiative and Stop Islamization of America. She is also the author of several books, the latest one, "Freedom or Submission: On the Dangers of Islamic Extremism & American Complacency."
There is currently a desperate battle being fought on Long Island by an imam – who is also a human rights commissioner of Nassau County – and members of an interfaith group to bar Geller from speaking at a local shul. The group, which includes several local religious leaders, refer to Geller as the equivalent of a Nazi or "an anti-Semite who claimed that Jews were trying to impose kosher laws on the nation."
