Islamist-Hater-in-Chief, Pamela Geller, Finds Something New to Get Angry Over

I of course mean the title in my own opinion, based on my interpretation of some of her writings, and have no intent to be libelous.

With t hat disclaimer, Ms. Geller’s column on April 6, 2014, was entitled “U.S. Muslims Angry Over School’s Easter Flyer.”

Rather than go through Ms. Geller’s version first, this is a story I saw two days earlier on The Friendly Atheist‘s blog: “Muslim Parents Rightfully Upset When Church’s Flyers Are Distributed at Dearborn Elementary Schools.” To be clear:

A flyer headlined “Eggstravaganza!” was given to students this week at three elementary schools in the Dearborn Public Schools district, which has a substantial number of Muslim students. The flyer described an April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church in Dearborn featuring an egg hunt, relay race, and egg toss. It asked students to RSVP “to secure your free spot” and included images of eggs and a bunny.

… The pastor of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church defended the flyer, saying it was approved for distribution by Dearborn Public Schools and is not promoting a religious event.

“It’s designed to be an opportunity to invite the community to come for a day of activity,” said Pastor Neeta Nichols of Cherry Hill. “There is not a religious component to this event.”

As they note, the last sentence would be true … “minus the church celebrating Easter” part. Hemet over there also notes that it’s a nice change to see another religion complaining about this as opposed to atheists, who are usually the ones to complain about this sort of stuff. To be clear: Separation of church and state means that this sort of flyer – asking students to participate in a Christian event at a church – is clearly unconstitutional. It doesn’t matter who’s complaining about it.

But, since it’s Muslims who are complaining, that means we get a column by Pamela Geller about it.

The Free Press quoted a Muslim parent, Majed Moughni, who said that the flyer “really bothered my two kids.” Moughni’s two children are aged seven and nine. He added: “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed to mix with schools.’”

What 7-year-old or 9-year-old talks like that? They don’t. But this is the device that supremacists use – using children (sort of a riff on Hamas using children as human shields). They pulled this same PR stunt a couple of weeks back in their latest demand to get halal food in New York City cafeterias. (Get the details here.) This is the same ideology that encourages these same parents to hand their children over to jihad suicide bombings to slaughter the non-believers “wherever you find them.”

Hmmm … so a parent teaching a child about the separation of church and state is just like teaching them to be suicide bombers?

Ms. Geller also wrote, “The Easter egg hunt was just supposed to be a secular afternoon of fun and frolic for young children like Moughni’s seven- and nine-year-old.” I’ll repeat what Hemet said: Sure, minus that whole “Easter” and “church” thing.

She also wrote, “There is ever more Muslim victimhood posturing and more dawah (Islamic proselytizing) in our public schools. We never see this done with Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, etc., but we see it with this ideology.” Really? Seriously? We never see Christian victimhood and posturing in our schools? Ms. Geller, I am here to call you a liar. Either you are the most willfully ignorant person who follows religion, or you are a willful liar. There, I said it. Practically every week there is a new story – true or faked – about Christian victimhood in public schools and calls for resignations as a result. I suggest you look up practically anything written by Todd Starnes to start with.

And for a nice ending full of indignation: “If Muslims such as these parents who are enraged at an Easter egg hunt cannot tolerate other religions, why not stay in a supremacist Shariah country where creed apartheid is the law of the land?”

As for my ending: No, you are wrong. This is not about intolerance and outrage over religious supremacy. This is about a school not advocating – or even giving the appearance of advocating, advancing, or favoring one religion over another.
