(TCP)CHICAGO Opinion – Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer continue to decry the attempts of CAIR’s stealth jihad upon America by showing up at this year’s CPAC 2012 conference. Relentless in their pursuit for awareness and pursuit for concerned Americans, the work is nonetheless a thankless effort because, for the most part, except for a minority it falls on deaf ears.
Our publication has been steadily standing firm behind the maligned Geller. We have been waging an email campaign to synagogues to wake up and come to her aid, with no success. Hundreds of emails have been sent thus far all over the nation, and not one Jewish organization has stepped up to the plate to ask her to speak.
Apparently the liberal Jewish community is struck by the same antipathy Jews felt in early Nazi Germany. The phrase “It can’t happen here,” comes to mind.
Here’s the truth, it can happen here. Libertarians are out there calling the Jewish lobby AIPAC, Zionist thugs and blatantly blaming FED activity on the Jewish people as a whole. This is unacceptable. It’s also grossly false.
In the 63 years of Israel’s modern incarnation, ever since German atrocities in Europe against Jews and non-Jewish supporters alike, Jews have been under attack by the Muslim threat. As recently as last week, Iran’s Ayatollah called for the annihilation of Israel and all Jews by issuing yet another hateful press release from their state sponsored media outlets.
Europe now mired in Muslim immigration, especially in Sweden, Spain, France and England, have seen what tolerance of Islamic customs reap, and that is, a relentless activity to accept their customs as mainstream law. Here too in America, CAIR continues its stealth jihad arguing for the acceptance of Sharia law in our courts.
All of this continues almost unabated, except for the work of Pamela Geller and Spencer. Special mentions must also be made for the work of Brigitte Gabriel.
It’s not a question of whether “it can happen here” – it is happening here.
Still, in the mainstream press, this is considered a fringe subject. A perfect example that antipathy towards this subject will continue to embolden an arrogant Islamic movement, backed by a theocracy out of touch with the modern world. They are testing Israel’s resolve to stay alive. It’s a stupendous blunder.
Egypt, under the dominant influence of the Muslim Brotherhood is holding peaceful Americans hostage to stand trial. Why?
Their arrogance, coupled to a weakness perceived by them from Obama’s administration will continue to press their agenda which is political and physical submission to the “will of Allah.”
Geller and company are the canary in the coal mine. The difference is, this canary has a gas mask. If someone tells you they want you dead, it would be best to err on the side of caution.
Islam knows no tolerance. Their folks will lie to advance its cause. Witness: Pakistan. This is a fact that cannot be ignored. There is a tectonic struggle coming to the fore, so get ready.

Geller and Spencer Confront Suhail Khan at CPAC 2012
It’s interesting to see how quickly Khan left the scene after being challenged to a debate. Why didn’t he just set a date for the debate to occur? He fled while making the statement that the beautiful Geller and Jihad Watch’s Bob Spencer were communists and Alinksy-ites. An obviously laughable assertion. – Sidler
Much thanks to datechguy for these videos — if anyone else captured video of the beginning of the event, please email me. Our video failed early on. But we got most of it. Full videos will be posted this week.
Once again, our event was SRO, packed. The room was hot as hades (I suppose Grover turned off the air), but that did not stop the sweaty crowd from participating and staying for the full two hour presentation. On an ominous note, three people wearing Americans for Tax Reform ID tags were taking pictures of the faces and name tags of the people attending our event. ATR is Grover’s org.
The only coverage of our landmark event in defense of freedom is from the anti-freedom, pro-jihad left. Islamic supremacists and their quisling apologists on the left are trying to twist the meaning of the founder and chairman of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force (VAST), James Lafferty’s remarks.
He issued the following statement about remarks he made during a speech on Shariah law at the Conservative Political Action Conference earlier today:
“I do not condone or encourage any criminal act or vandalism against any mosque . I am a firm believer in the rule of law and the protections our Constitution provides for the free exercise of religion — and that means all religions. Nothing I said during my speech earlier this evening was intended to minimize or trivialize any vandalism of any mosque or other religious building.”

Only in a panel discussion organized by Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch
I first met Geller and Spencer in person February 2011 at the New York screening of the movie that they produced, “The Ground Zero Mosque,” shortly after it had premiered at CPAC 2011.This is the way that I had described it at the time:
“… Predictably, like most every topic of critical importance that contains controversial content and what may be considered by some to be politically incorrect views, an attempt was made to dilute the message brought to CPAC by Geller/Spencer…”At CPAC 2012 the Geller/Spencer tandem were still not favorite sons of event organizers, and yet this critical story that they and their fellow panelists told of the creeping of Sharia and Islamic Law into American society drew a standing-room-only audience with more than one standing ovation.Nowhere else at CPAC did this issue of Islamic Law in America, so critical to the national security of the United States, get discussed.Each one of the five speakers was in his or her own right something of an expert, providing a riveting discourse on the subject and possessing first-hand knowledge of how and why this creep is happening, how it’s putting the American way of life in jeopardy along with an in-depth discussion of the way that the Obama Justice Department is a complicit and active participant in the process.

The SRO crowd gives a standing ovation to retired Marine Gunnery Sgt. Jesse Nieto, who filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court after base officials determined that he could no longer drive his Toyota with decals and bumper stickers displaying a counter jihad bumpersticker onto any military installation.
Robert Muise, one of our keynote speakers, sued on his behalf and won.
Since base officials have violated Nieto’s right to free speech with the use of bumper sticker restrictions, the base cannot use the regulations to limit free speech in the future, Howard stated in his 16-page ruling.
The restriction carried over to Arlington National Cemetery where Nieto’s son, Marc, was buried after dying in the 2000 terrorist attack on the USS Cole that also killed 16 other sailors. Nieto, who served two tours of duty in Vietnam War as an infantryman, was not allowed to drive the vehicle into the cemetery, according to the order from base traffic court officer Lt. Col. James Hessen, who was also named as a defendant in the lawsuit.
By testifying that they would allow positively perceived bumper stickers about the Islamic faith, base officials demonstrated they were being selective in their restrictions, said Nieto’s attorney, Robert J. Muise, senior trial counsel for the Thomas More Law Center.
“During testimony base officials said they would permit bumper stickers with messages that said ‘Islam equals peace,’” said Muise. “By allowing messages representing something Mr. Nieto does not believe in but banning him from expressing something he holds true, the base violated his Constitutional rights.”
Muise, a former Marine officer of 13 years who was assigned to Camp Lejeune twice, was surprised when he saw Nieto in the audience and introduced him to the crowd.
Our other keynote speaker, J. Christian Adams, is the heroic former Justice Department lawyer who blew the whistle on the Obama DoJ’s refusal to prosecute the Black Panther voter intimidation case. He spoke about the deeply ingrained Islamophilia within Eric Holder’s DoJ, and its energetic efforts to enforce special Sharia privileges for Muslims — such as the notorious case in which the DoJ sued a school district for denying a first-year teacher’s outrageous request for 19 days off so that she could go to Mecca on the hajj.
