Pamela Geller Watch: Arabic Language not to be Trusted or Taught

Pamela Geller

Pamela Geller was on Fox Business News, or as some know it Circus TV advocating her wacky conspiracy theories. Her response might have elicited the Pamela Geller Quote of the Year or at least a candidate (the year is still young),

“Well Bob, there is conspiracy theory and then there is conspiracy fact, there is a global Jihad, (mumble)…Robert Spencer’s book, (mumble), there is a stealth Jihad, there is a war and you can avoid reality Eric but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality.”

Pamela Geller, Bob Beckel, Eric Bolling and others on Fox Business/Circus News:

Islamophobia Today has a good rebuttal of the tripe from Geller on this subject:

Pamela Geller: Islamophobia/Arabophobia

Written by Admin of IslamophobiaToday.com

Pamela Geller’s Islamophobia has gotten so bad that she assumes the Arabic language is inherently “radical Islam” despite its existence well before Islam.  By this, she is implying that Arabs are only Muslims. I am not sure if Geller forgot or if she is plain ignorant but there are more Arab Christians in America than Arab Muslims:

Based on Zogby International Survey (200)

Not only does Geller exalt in her bigotry against Islam and Muslims (as the website LoonWatch has documented), but she is clearly manifesting her racist tendencies:

Good job, freedom lovers. You fought back against mandatory Arabic Classes in Public Schools in Texas.

“It shows how we mischaracterized, we willfully misunderstand Islam. Yes, on the face of it, yes, Arabic is a language. In a sense there would be no difference between opening a foreign language school — a Spanish language school or a french language school — but in fact Arabic is more than a language. It is explicated the language of Islam, so in that sense it is part of the Islamic religious imperial project. Radical Islam advances through the Arabic language. And you go all kinds of places that aren’t in the Arab world now, like Pakistan, Indonesia, Central Asia, the Balkans, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Canada and the United States, and you will here those Imams preaching in Arabic. Arabic is not just another language like French or Italian, it is the spearhead of an ideological project that is deeply opposed to the United States.”

In Geller’s post, she selectively quotes from Mandatory Arabic Classes in Public School In Texas, omitting the fact that Arabic is not only the language being taught at the school:

The University of Texas, working with the Mansfield district, identified Cross Timbers Intermediate as a target since 10 percent of the district’s Arabic-speaking population attends the South Arlington school.

“The federal government sees Arabic, Chinese and Russian as critical,” Escovedo said. “Our country has a deficit in Arabic speakers and people who understand the Arabic culture.”

The Mansfield district also offers Chinese and Russian, among other languages. Students may begin taking language classes in middle school to fulfill their high school requirement of two years of foreign language.

Geller does not make any comment about learning Russian, Chinese, or any other language, but for some reason, Arabic is the language of terrorists. So her logic, or as I like to call it the Gellerian/Spencerian logic is as follows:

1)       Muslims are Evil

2)      They speak  Arabic

3)      Arabic is Evil

The semi-coherent ramblings of the uber-racist Pam Geller once again, betray her false claims towards being an advocate of freedom, equality, and justice. For Geller, Arabic equals Islam and Islam equals total absolute evil and therefore by extension Arabic speakers are likewise evil.

Arabic is a rich, classical language like Latin and Greek, branding it as an ideology is beyond ridiculous, it is a call to prepetual ignorance where by Geller wishes to deprive the coming generations of an experience that not only will enrich their lives, increase their knowledge but will also prove useful in their future careers. In reality what she is afraid of is the normalization of Arabs and Muslims in American society, and she will go to any lengths to ghettoize the former.

    It is amazing to me that such a divisive person is given so much credibility by the media. She is constantly on television giving interviews of hate and spreading her nasty views on air, mostly unchallenged by the hosts.

    How a person who says the President is an illegitimate child of Malcolm X and claims to have naked pictures of his mother is allowed on television is beyond me. If she was saying these hateful things about other races, religions and cultures, she would not get the time of day.

    I wish this bikini-wearing blogger would just come out and say why she says the things she does. She is yet another person who claims to be a patriotic American, while representing only the interests of Israel. Hmmm, maybe that’s why she on television all the time.

    Dr.Mohsen El-Guindy,

    Your post about the Arabic language is absolutely superb. I whole-heartedly agree with every word you have written about it.

    Very recently,and on my own website,I have written about the language of the Qur’an the following,and I quote word by word of what I have written:

    Quote
    ======

    ~ The written language of the Holy Qur’an is NOT classical Arabic.

    ~ The written language of the Holy Qur’an is NOT Arabic poetry.

    ~ The written language of the Holy Qur’an is NOT Arabic prose.

    ~ The written language of the Holy Qur’an IS QUR’ANIC ARABIC,meaning: no other forms of the Arabic language and its various and grat literatures fit to frame the written language of the Holy Qur’an in any one of them.

    Please note that the writer of this column/essay used the word “Holy” repeatedly in the foregoing. That has been done deliberately for support in making the following comments:

    * Moses had changed part of the Red Sea into land to save his people from slaughter. That was a miracle made by Moses.

    * Jesus Christ had made the blind see,had healed people with leprosy and even revived Lazarus from his death. These are miracle made by Jesus Christ.

    * The Prophet Muhammad had not done miracles similar to what Jesus and Moses did. But Muhammad’s miracleis,indeed, the fascinating Qur’an whose language is mesmerising when it is chanted collectively by a group of prayers,or sigularly by an Imam or Mua’zen like Bilal. Because of that and all of the above,the use of the word “Holy” in describing the Qur’an has become fully and fairly justified since the written language of the Qur’an sounds so divine.

    Unquote
    =========

    I have held the foregoing views and tried to articulate them in writings and in debates the best I could,since I fell in love with the beautiful Arabic language and all facets of its rich and great literatures. That was 40 years ago.

    Thank you for vindicating my views by your superb post,on this thread,about the Arabic language. Much appreciated.

    Note: I apologize for any spelling mistake I make or I have already made. Because of shortage of time,(I post on three different websites and run my own website),I have no time for editing what I write. I trust the readers’ intelligence,and above all,understanding of what involved.

  • Michael Akkawi

    Pam, what about German, the language of Hitler?

  • Mosizzle

    Good points, Dr El Guindy, but I would refrain from condemning her to hell. As Muslims, we should leave that part to God. :)

    All of these Islamophobes have a tendency to take comments out of context, so we should all be careful with what we say.

  • Amir Fahmi

    English words of Arabic origins ( small example ):

    1. Alchohol
    2.Cotton.
    3.Algorithim
    4.Algebra
    5.Alkali

    Note: The greatest Greek “scientist” Ptolemy say the solar apogee is fixed and the rate of pressesion is once in every 100 hundred years.

    Any decent 1st year student in astronomy know this is wrong. =)

  • DrM

    @Nur Alia,

    You nailed it. “Sanity inspector” has exhibited similar dishonest buffoonery in the past.

    All jokes asides, I genuinely believe plastic Pam is mentally unstable. Pipes tried something similar with his lies against the Khalil Gibran academy years ago. Ironic that these judeofascists don’t see how close Arabic and Hebrew are.
    Zionism really does rot the brain.

  • http://mohsenelguindy.com Dr. Mohsen El-Guindy

    Pamella Geller is obviously totally separated from history and reality. Arabic was already there in the Arab penynsula thousands of years before the advent of Islam. It was the language of Prophet Ishmael the older son of Prophet Abraham. Before the advent of Islam the Arabs were underdeveloped in many ways, but their Arabic was so advanced that they became the most eloquent people on earth. they were unmatched poets. They used to gather in the markets challenging each other with their poems and poetry. The most important poems of their time were so sacred to them that they hung them on the Ka’aba. They went to the extent that the leaders of their tribes must be great poets.
    The Prophet of Islam Muhammad, was not a poet. he lived among them in honesty and kindness for 40 years without composing one single poetry. Due to his honesty and good character they called him the trustworty.

    Allah knew that the pagan Arabs were excellent in composing poetry, so He descended the Koran upon the Prophet in a divine Arabic language. What they read of the Koran was not poetry or prose, but a divine language challenging them to imitate it but they couldn’t. That’s why they acussed Muhammad with sorcery and magic.

    Yes Pamella Gellar, divine Arabic is the language of the Koran, and Muslims who don’t speak Arabic must learn Arabic in order to understand their religion and feel the beauty of the rithm of the Koran. What’s so strange about that?

    Each meeting you participate in shows nothing but your ignorance and hatred to Islam. Time will come when you will realize that by your ingnorance and senseless attack against Islam you are but pullung the rope tight around your neck. Because of your ignorance you miss the fact that in the end you are but defying your Creator, the one who sent Noah until Jesus till Muhammad with only one Message: I am you God, worship me alone and associate not with me any partners. Allah’s wrath is upon you in this life, and His curse is upon you in your grave, and in the Hereafter you will be roasted in Hell. But don’t worry, you will have in Hell other partners; Robert spencer, Bill Warner, Daniel Pipes, Pat Robertson, and the like.

    Mashallah look at pamela geller’s face. She resembles a ghoul by the day.

    Linear Algebra is my favourite subject. I hereby tell anyone who is anti algebra to “go forth and multiply” but not in those exact words. :-)

  • La Piovra

    Algebra is evil. Chemistry is evil. We have to go back to using Roman numerals, and we can’t ever, ever use a zero…

    I used to hear my mom say that a person’s deeds reflect on his or her face. I noticed as I saw the video, that Pamela’s face is increasingly becoming more horrific.

  • NassirH

    Oh boy, I just watched the video and about 30 seconds in I see Ann Coulter’s mug. Did you hear how she pronounces “Muslims”? It sounded exactly like, “all terrorists are Mooosslims”. This is the same loon who said, “We should invade their [Mooosslims’] countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity”.

    I’m with “jawad”. Are we SURE that Pam’s not being paid off by CAIR (or the Muslim Brotherhood :shock: ) – to make Islamophobia look so absurd that people will just naturally embrace Islam in reaction? :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • NassirH

    Damn, this moron makes herself look more paranoid every day. Also shame on Fox news for giving someone like Geller a platform. It reminds me of when I asked my Dad why there’s so many crappy newsources in Pakistan, he replied, “What do you think Fox News is?”

  • Garo

    How can any rational/decent human being be against something he or she is so ignorant of? Only hatred that exists inside the heart and mind of such a character dictates the ugliness of what his or her mouth says.

    Pamela Geller acts,in the show as presented here,as a desperate liar who is hoping that some of her lies about the Arabic language,Arabs,Islam and Muslims would,somehow,influence some of the listeners. But,at least,the facial expressions of the gentleman who sat next to her right had indicated,to me,that he was uncomfortable with the hatred she rapidly spouted off her ugly mouth. That is good news. One may extrapolate accordingly!

    Emperor has quoted Escovedo saying,”Our country has a deficit in Arabic speakers and people who understand the Arabic culture.” That has certainly proven to be so in Iraq.

    Such a statement by Escovedo neutralizes all the fraudulent patriotism Pamela Geller,and her ilk,hide behind to spread her/their hatred and bigotry against Islam,Muslims,Arabs and Arabic language. Pity!
