PROMINENT BLOGGER, ACTIVIST, AND POLITICAL COMMENTATOR
PAMELA GELLER TO ADDRESS GREAT NECK SYNAGOGUE
On Sunday Morning, April 14, at 10:00am, the Great Neck Synagogue Men’s Club presents Pamela Geller, Founder of the influential “Atlas Shrugs” blog and Executive Director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA). She is the author of of the new book, Freedom or Submission: On the Dangers of Islamic Extremism & American Complacency. She has also authored Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance (WND Books) and The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America with Robert Spencer (foreword by Ambassador John Bolton), (Simon & Schuster). She is also a regular columnist for World Net Daily, Andrew Breitbart's Big Government and Big Journalism, the American Thinker, and other publications.
Through her writings and frequent television and radio appearances, Geller has driven numerous stories, particularly the controversy surrounding the “Ground Zero Mosque.” Geller was the organizer and keynote speaker at the rally against the proposed mosque on September 11, 2011, making her a lighting rod for the resulting media firestorm.
Geller received the Annie Taylor Award for Courage in 2010 from the David Horowitz Freedom Center. In October 2011, the United States Marine Corps presented her with the flag flown on September 11, 2011 over Camp Leatherneck, "amid the battlefields of Afghanistan during decisive operations against enemy forces in Helmand Province."
Geller will be introduced by Greg Buckley, whose son, Lance Corporal Greg Buckley, Jr., was one of three Marines killed in a “Green on Blue” insider attack on his military base in the Helmand province, Afghanistan on Aug 10. Greg’s murderers were immediately captured and the gruesome killings were concurrently celebrated as his killer shouted “I did Jihad.” Last year there were over 50 “Green on Blue” murders of our soldiers in Afghanistan and the numbers continue to climb. Greg Buckley Sr. is calling for swift justice for the murderers of his son and demanding prosecution on American soil as terrorists.
