On Wednesday night, Fox News’ Sean Hannity held what could only be described as the craziest panel debate ever. He invited free speech activist Pamela Geller (who recently organized the “Draw Mohammed Contest” in Texas) and Radical British Imam Anjem Choudary onto his show for a debate. Choudary has been known to defend the actions of radical terrorists like ISIS and Al Qaeda, and he is very open about his hopes to conquer America and Britain with Sharia. Geller’s main focus through the years has been on stopping Sharia law from influencing any part of American life. She argues that Sharia is death to free speech – which was the central theme of her recent free speech conference and “Draw Mohammed Contest”.
Things were “passionate” from start to finish, with Choudary even telling Geller that she should be executed for her part in the “Mohammed Cartoon Contest.”
Make sure you watch the whole thing for all of the fireworks.
One of my favorite parts of the segment was when Geller explained the problem and defended herself from attacks of being “controversial.”
(Starting around 4:30)
PAMELA GELLER: Cannon laws apply only to Catholics, Jewish law applies only to Jews, but this Sharia Law takes every basic aspect of human life and asserts its authority over non-Muslims, unlike Jewish law and unlike canon law. That is why under the Sharia they are slaughtering the Christians and secular Muslims across Africa and across the Muslim world.
The fact is, in that fatwa that was issued against me, my name is preceded by kanzir, which means ‘pig.’
It is the word Mohammed used before he slaughtered — beheaded hundreds of Jews. So to first say to the liberal media that this is not religious is absurd and obscene on its face.
To blame me and say that my cartoons are controversial? Murdering cartoonists is controversial.
It is the jihadis who made this a flash point, not me. Does anyone really they they would have been peaceful, loving Americans..
… No. I am talking sir. I know you are used to stepping over women, but you’re not going to have it here.
I submit to you that my conference saved lives because I understand the threat, and we had enormous protection, and the Garland Police were superb. But those Jihadists drove a thousand miles for this conference.
Would they have hit a mall? Would they have hit a coffee shop like in Australia? That conference saved lives and shame on the media.
