To the Editor:

Pamela Geller attempts to change the subject when it comes to her own vitriolic rhetoric against Muslims (Letters, March 23). But let's be clear: Geller should not be allowed to get away with playing the victim and hiding behind the mask of a "patriot and proud Zionist."

Geller's self-righteous campaign to show the world the "true face" of Islam is abhorrent and morally repugnant.  Geller, in views she outlines in her blog, has linked Islam to bestiality and rape of minors, compared Muslims to Nazis and asserted that Islam inspired Hitler. The Anti-Defamation League has closely followed her anti-Muslim scapegoating and that of Stop Islamization of America, the organization she leads, and has posted additional examples of her comments on its website.

Terrorism inspired by fundamentalist Islam is indeed a true threat to America, Israel and democracies around the world. But in directing her rhetoric at the entire Islamic faith indeed, in supporting campaigns to suggest that Muslims should abandon their faith entirely Geller fuels and fosters anti-Muslim bigotry in society.


  Sincerely,

Robert G. Sugarman
National Chair
