Author and outspoken critic of Islam and Islamic jihad, Pamela Geller, appeared on Sean Hannity‘s show on Tuesday evening alongside Geraldo Rivera and Sebastian Gorka to talk about her new book, Fatwa: Hunted in America, and the latest jihad attack in New York.
Geller, who has been promoting Fatwa, which is her own true story of death threats by Islamic jihadists from around the world, including a plot in New York to behead her, continued to emphasize that the issue we are dealing with is not necessarily Muslims, but with the ideology of Islam itself.
After some talk about the Islamic jihad attack in New York, Rivera claimed that the NYPD had the “best surveillance,” but in his opinion, it wasn’t enough, and his words were completely and stupidly reactionary.
However, Geller said the counter-terrorism surveillance in NYC had been “dismantled” by CAIR and Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“They’ve been disarmed,” Geller said. “Last week, a jury convicted a Muslim jihadi in a plot to behead me in an ISIS-inspired attack.”
Rivera claimed this was the first successful terrorist attack in NYC since 9/11.
What he fails to deal with is that this isn’t that. There have been numerous Islamic jihadi attack in NYC since 9/11, not to mention throughout the US, including the Orlando shooting, San Bernardino, a hatchet-wielding Muslim who wounded a woman and police officer before being gunned down in NYC and tons of other stories that never made the mainstream media news outlets.
Geraldo then went on to misrepresent that issue at hand after saying there needed to be bans on U-Haul rental trucks and concrete barriers put up for bikers. No, really, he said that.
Take a listen.
“When you guys talk about Muslims being the devil,” Rivera continued, “you overlook the fact that––”
“Who said that?” Geller interrupted. “Why do I have to pat on the back every Muslim that doesn’t want to kill me? I expect that. We’re not talking about ‘all Muslims.’ We’re talking about jihadis. Stop conflating them together. Stop broad brushing Muslims all as jihadis.”
This is exactly right. There are plenty of Muslims, who are not Islamists, but the issue is the ideology, which is why we have no business being in the Middle East if we are going to leave the root of the problem, Islam, in place.
We have shown that we want to promote “democracy,” something our founders would have abhorred, more than we want to promote the foundations of America, namely the Christian religion and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We have demonstrated this time and again. All we need to do is compare the statements of someone like former Central Intelligence Agency Middle East expert Clare Lopez, who said that both Afghanistan and Iraq’s constitutions were written to be Shariah-compliant with the help of the West, and this only further encourages the demonic doctrines of Islam and physical domination, with Someone like General Douglas MacArthur.
In the Japanese book 1945 Under the Shadow of the Occupation: The Ashlar and the Cross, Japanese investigative journalist Eiichiro Tokumoto documents MacArthur’s efforts to persuade missionaries to intensify their efforts, even encouraging mass conversions to Christianity.
“There was a complete collapse of faith in Japan in 1945—in our invincible military, in the emperor, in the religion that had become known as
‘state Shinto,'” Tokumoto wrote.
MacArthur said there was a spiritual vacuum created by the defeat. He believed the message of finding forgiveness of sins “appeals to the Oriental,” based on his experience in the Philippines.
The Bible became a best seller in Japan, thanks to the efforts of many missionaries and there was some increase in Catholicism. However, that was short-lived. There was a variety of reasons for this, including the fact that many missionaries didn’t speak Japanese.
I completely reject the official doctrines of the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church, though I do believe there are true believers still in that system, as were many of our Protestant forefathers. Still, I wonder if Protestant Christians had gone and planted churches and evangelized the people if it would have flourished.
Instead of us taking what truly made America great, we have mixed democracy with the doctrines of demons and are hoping for the same effect. That is our biggest foreign policy failure besides butting our noses into everyone else’s business.
However, back to the interview.
Rivera said that the US population of Muslims was only 4%, which Geller called “irrelevant.”
“What you have to do now is good police work, good surveillance, pass those sections of the Patriot Act that have lapsed,” Rivera said.
The Patriot Act is full of unconstitutional and tyrannical methods and notably, Sebastian Gorka pointed out that you don’t blanket everyone, which is part of the problem in this politically correct society we are in. Gorka said you don’t go looking for Islamic jihadists in Italian restaurants. I could go a step further and point out that the vast majority of people going through the airport have no reason to be stopped and searched and their things gone through without a warrant.
In fact, I’ll go a step further and say that even in the surveilling of mosques, which I’m in agreement with, there should always be a warrant accompanying that surveillance and the probable cause is found in the writings of the Koran, the Hadiths and the life of Muhammad.
“They’ve been dismantled,” Geller repeated. “NYPD had to dismantle their counterterrorism program. Thank you, Mayor de Blasio. Remember that in the election booth.”
Gorka was ousted from the Trump administration by neutered General McMaster, who is nothing more than a whitewasher of Islam.
After being ousted as a deputy assistant to President Trump in August, Gorka wrote in a letter, “Regrettably, outside of yourself, the individuals who most embodied and represented the policies that will “Make America Great Again,” have been internally countered, systematically removed, or undermined in recent months.”
“This was made patently obvious as I read the text of your speech on Afghanistan this week,” he added. “The fact that those who drafted and approved the speech removed any mention of Radical Islam or radical Islamic terrorism proves that a crucial element of your presidential campaign has been lost.”
