The ever controversial Pamela Geller is gaining headlines concerning a pro-Israel, anti-Jihadi advertisement that will soon run on the New York City subway system.
In the Jerusalem Post we read:
Islamophobic advertisements sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) are expected to appear next week at 10 New York subway stations after the Metropolitan Transportation Authority lost a federal court ruling to stop them, The New York Times reported Wednesday.
The irony, of course, is that while the advertisement is not the least bit "Islamophobic" calling it "Islamophobic" is, in fact, highly bigoted toward the Muslim people.
The advertisement reads as follows:
In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man.
And just who is it that is defined as "savage"? Jihadis, that's who. You know, the same people who just slaughtered four American diplomats in Libya. Geller is absolutely correct. Jihadis are savages. They are people who are willing to use extreme violence in order to promote the Sharia, the genocide of the Jews, the murder of Gay people, and the oppression of women.
Sounds pretty savage to me.
You know who the ad does not refer to?
It is the people who insist that the advertisement is "Islamophobic" who are conflating savage Jihadis with ordinary Muslims. And that, my friends, truly is racism. When they claim that this advertisement is "Islamophobic" the clear implication is that Muslims, in general, are Jihadis. They aren't.
In this instance it is not Geller who is being racist, but those who object to the advertisement on grounds of racism who are being racist.
The irony is delicious... and just sooo typical.
