Yesterday was the Fast of Esther, a fast that leads up to the joyous holiday of Purim.The story goes like this. With the help of her cousin Mordeccai and the pleas for G-d’s intervention the beautiful Queen Esther saved her people from Haman’s dastardly plot to kill all the Jews of Persia. Today that country is called Iran and it still wants to destroy all the Jews of Israel. When that job is complete – all Americans.
A few years ago I said to my husband that we need a contemporary Queen Esther. Now we have one. Kol Ha Kavod (all my respect) to the Creative Zionist Coalition for honoring Pamela Geller for the courage, intelligence, and sheer chutzpah she has demonstrated warning the American people about our most insidious enemy.
I don’t remember what year I started reading her blog Atlas Shrugs but it was still when she had her Supergirl-like logo, which I loved. Reading her blog answered the many questions I had about the spread of Islam throughout Europe as well as to the sovereign shores of the USA. Through her informative posts I was introduced to Bat Yeor’s essential tome Eurabia and the plan for a new Caliphate.
Ms. Geller didn’t stop with a blog, even after lawsuit after lawsuit. She didn’t stop even after murderous threats and emails. Instead she found her Mordeccai, David Yerushalami, and together they fight the Arab-Islamic forces that practice jihad by force or taquiya to destroy our country and make us second class citizens. She, with co-founder Robert Spenser created the organizations Stop the Islamization of America and the Freedom Defense League which have caused a lot of belligerency,kvetching, and lying from the ” Religion of Peace.”
She has stood shoulder to shoulder with the men of the EDL that are now in a British jail for standing up for their country. She has stood resolutely with Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, and almost singlehandedly brought down the Muslim crook Imam Rauf and his group of thugs and their plan to build the victory mosque on the blood of the Twin Towers.
If you are going to be in or around the environs of LA. come to the Purim gala honoring Steve Goldberg, Robert Spencer, and me. It's a once-in-a-lifetime.
