Foxman And Geller
Tue, 03/27/2012

It was grossly irrational for Anti-Defamation League national President Abraham Foxman to lump Pamela Geller with Patrick Buchanan and Rev. Louis Farrakhan (“Russell Simmons’ Blind Spot For Bigotry,” Opinion, March 16).

I might be one of the few people who can say that they have attended 13 Farrakhan events as well as seven events where Geller has spoken. Geller uses facts, history and actual examples of rhetoric or incidents to sound an alarm about a clear and present danger facing Jews, Christians, America, Israel and the West: practitioners of extremist Islam. Farrakhan fans the flames of this extremism and is an extremist himself. To put it simply: Geller tells the truth about radical Islam. Farrakhan lies about Jews and Judaism.

We need more Pamela Gellers, and Foxman is quite wrong in castigating her.

Try being truthful about Louis Farrakhan and Islam. See if there will be peace in the world then we must have honest conversations about race and leadership. The Jewish people and the Zionist people are different and like I had to learn that all are not the same! If you love truth then start to do things differently I love Farrakhan but when you attack him and lie on him then I began to hate you then where do that leaves us? But if we start to converse on this topic we can build understanding and a relationship that could lead to peace and security and friendship! Just my thinking.
