Pamela Geller Faux Rally Brings Usual Hate of Islam

Pamela Geller, has been rallying her fellow conspiracy theorists and anti-Muslim shock troops to converge on the Franklin County Juvenile Court House, to in her usual shrill style, “Help Save Fathima Rifqa Bary!” Of course the Rifqa Bary case has long since ceased to be about the young girl her self, let alone about her safety but rather it has metamorphized into a vivid manifestation of the psychopathies of the Right-wing and its most ardent and zealous core. As journalist Michael Kruse put it in a back and forth with anti-Muslim Andrew Bostom, “he (Robert Spencer), and Pam Geller, too, are so much a part of this story, and certainly reasons it’s turned into what it’s turned into.”

The Rifqa Bary story is all but over, the courts have decided that she is safe in Ohio where she will have regular contact with her parents who they have also absolved from baseless allegations of violence and extremism. The lead cheerleaders in ripping this young girl from her family have been Spencer and Geller, who in the face of the verdict seem to be shell shocked.

Geller, the most vocal of the anti-Muslims over this case has chosen a quixotic strategy in response, attempting to pressurize the Courts to sweep aside the judicial process and their verdict in favor of her and her mobs fantasy of seeing Rifqa Bary living with a Christian family.

An interesting progressive website called Plunderbund reports that one its bloggers, Joseph will be attending the Geller rally to report on the ins-and-outs of the sure fire Islamophobia. Already we have a nice morsel of what is to come:

Spotted at Wingnut Islamophobe Rally: Islam is of the Devil

Just a hint of what is to come from a visit by PB blogger Joseph at a wingnut Islamaphobe rally in Columbus:

I also hear he has a video with Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs (at least I think it’s her), claiming the White House is putting cookies on her computer! Not only is she a skeered of the Mooz-lums, but she’s a skeered of cookies too!

Boo!

More to come…

Stay tuned for more at Plunderbund, and we will also definitely be updating our findings.

UPDATE: More from Plunderbund

Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs and a bunch of her wing nut friends held a rally today across from the Franklin County Juvenile Court House the stated purpose of which was to show support for Rifqa Bary.

It didn’t take but a few seconds to realize that the actual purpose was much more sinister. The people who showed up for this rally couldn’t give two shits about the Rifqa herself – they only care about using her as a tool to further their own hate-filled, intolerant, anti-Muslim agenda.

You could tell by the shirts and the signs that these people were full of hate. How very Christian of them.

The photos speak for themselves (but I added some captions anyway)…


rally3
Maybe a dozen people had on these ridiculous shirts.

rally2
Including these classy broads who brought along their babies. Want to talk about indoctrination?

rally1
This guy intentionally misspelled Muslim as ‘Moslem’ knowing that spelling is offensive.

rally4
More nutjobs with signs. The portly fellow on the phone is Robert Spencer, the wing nutty author well known for spreading misinformation and hatred of Islam. The guy to his left is one of the many serious-looking guys with sunglasses and suits who were pretending to be from the Secret Service.

rally5
Another nut with a sign. Note the stack of books? The top one is Robert Spencer’s “Stealth Jihad: How Radical Islam is Subverting America without Guns or Bombs”.

    “Danios, good try, but even that page states that the four sunni schools of jurisprudence establish death penalty for apostasy. There is a scholarly consensus of death penalty for Islam.”

    This entire construction of “all four madhabs say yo momma is fat” and “therefore there is ‘scholarly consensus’ that yo momma is fat” is highly flawed. The former does not at all entail the latter. I have already explained this to TYO here:

    http://www.loonwatch.com/2010/05/do-muslims-want-to-reimpose-dhimmitude-or-live-as-equals/#comment-12717

    I will elaborate on it more. But good try.

    Danios, good try, but even that page states that the four sunni schools of jurisprudence establish death penalty for apostasy. There is a scholarly consensus of death penalty for Islam.

    So Danios, are you saying Muhammad was a misunderstander of Islam in the quotes above?

    Also get “Reliance of the traveller” here:

    http://www.amazon.com/Reliance-Traveller-Classic-Islamic-Al-Salik/dp/0915957728

    It clearly states:

    F1.3, (page 109):

    Someone raised among Muslims who denies the obligatoriness of the prayer, zakat, fasting Ramadan, the pilgrimage, or the unlawfulness of wine and adultery, or denies something else upon which there is scholarly consensus (ijma’, def: b7) and which is necessarily knows as being of the religion (N: necessarily known meaning things that any Muslim would know about if asked) thereby becomes an unbeliever (kafir) and is executed for his unbelief (O: if he does not admit he is mistaken and acknowledge the obligatoriness or unlawfulness of that which there is scholarly consensus upon. As for if he denies the obligatoriness of something there is not consensus upon, then he is not adjudged an unbeliever).

    o1.0 WHO IS SUBJECT TO RETALIATION FOR INJURIOUS CRIMES (page 582)

    o1.2, (page 583)

    The following are not subject to retaliation:

    (3) A Jewish or Christian subject of the Islamic state for killing an apostate from Islam (O: because a subject of the state is under its protection, while killing an apostate from Islam is without consequences);

    o5.0 THE EXPIATION TO ALLAH FOR TAKING A HUMAN LIFE

    o5.4

    (O: There is no expiation for killing someone who has left Islam, a highwayman, (def: o15), or a convicted married adulterer, even when someone besides the caliph kills him.)

    o8.0 APOSTASY FROM ISLAM (RIDDA) (page 595)

    (O: Leaving Islam is the ugliest form of unbelief (kufr) and the worst. It may come about through sarcasm, as when someone is told, “Trim your nails, it is sunna,” and he replies, “I would not do it ever if it were,” as opposed to when some circumstance exists which exonerates him of having committed apostasy, such as when his tongue runs away with him, or when he is quoting someone, or says it out of fear.)

    o8.1 When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.

    o8.2 In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representative) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.

    o8.3 If he is a freeman, no one besides the caliph or his representative may kill him. If someone else kills him, the killer is disciplined (def: o17) (O: for arrogating the caliph’s prerogative and encroaching upon his rights, as this is one of his duties).

    o8.4 There is no indemnity for killing an apostate (O: or any expiation, since it is killing someone who deserves to die).

    “Thank you to the USC Muslim Student Association for the sources! What did Muhammad say in a case like Rifqa Bary”

    And thank you to the all the Christians who provide the Bible as a source! What does the Bible say in a case like Rifqa Bary?

    Thank you to the USC Muslim Student Association for the sources!

    What did Muhammad say in a case like Rifqa Bary, where a muslim leaves Islam?

    http://www.usc.edu/schools/college/crcc/engagement/resources/texts/muslim/hadith/bukhari/084.sbt.html#009.084.057

    Muhammad clearly stated “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him”.

    http://www.usc.edu/schools/college/crcc/engagement/resources/texts/muslim/hadith/bukhari/083.sbt.html#009.083.017

    And there Muhammad states that blood “cannot be shed except” someone “who reverts from Islam (apostate)”.

    http://www.usc.edu/schools/college/crcc/engagement/resources/texts/muslim/hadith/bukhari/089.sbt.html#009.089.271

    Here we see muslims commanded to “kill him (as it is) the verdict of Allah and His Apostle” when a man left Islam religiously.

    This might be why they think Rifqa Bary is in danger. Has anyone asked her dad what he thinks about what Muhammad said in the above verses?
