French mourners following the Charlie Hebdo terror attack
As France reels from two bloody terrorist attacks in as many days, Pamela Geller warns this is just the beginning and unless Americans take action, “Such attacks are coming here.”
In an exclusive interview with WND, the author of “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance” painted a dire picture of the Western future. Even after the most devastating terrorist attacks in French history, Geller judged that “no European nations are doing anything against Islamization at this time, and I don’t see any indication that any will in the near future.”
The attacks were sparked by caricatures of the Islamic prophet Muhammad deemed offensive by many Muslims. As WND has reported, Islamic nations have been trying for years to impose a worldwide prohibition on criticism of their religion and their prophet through the United Nations.
With so many people so deeply invested in the goal of a global ban on criticism of Islam, Geller says the murder of the satirists at the French magazine Charlie Hebdo will not halt the drive to end free speech.
“There is absolutely no evidence that they’re backing away from efforts to impose ‘hate speech’ laws,” Geller told WND. “In fact, just [earlier this week] a Canadian imam called for the criminalization of satirical cartoons of religious leaders.”
Geller declares in her book that “the gravest threat this Islamization poses is the restriction of the freedom of speech.” While European countries and Canada already have laws against criticism of Islam under the guise of “hate speech,” President Barack Obama has shown a willingness for years to expand such laws to the United States and other nations around the world.
According to Professor Jonathan Turley of George Washington University, “The Obama administration shockingly supported Muslim allies trying to establish a new international blasphemy standard” in 2009.
Following the terrorist attacks on an American facility in Libya and the murder of the American ambassador on Sept. 11, 2012, President Obama intoned that the “U.S rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.”
At the time, Geller argued Obama effectively was “sanctioning Islam’s blasphemy laws, which forbid criticism of Islam.”
As WND reported, only two weeks later, President Obama told the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 25, 2012, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
And after the latest attacks in Paris, President Obama carefully tailored his speech so as not use the words “Islam,” “radical Islam,” “Muslim,” “jihad” “or “Shariah” when condemning the shootings.
Shariah expert Joy Brighton called President Obama’s speech “Shariah compliment.”
As WND reported, the United Nations followed President Obama’s lead and refused to link the attacks to Islam.
