Death threat from ISIS

Following on from the ISIS terrorist attack in Texas on the free speech event organised by Pamela Geller (celebrating cartoons of Mohamed), ISIS has issued a statement. They say that Geller - and all those who support her - are now 'legitimate targets for slaughter'.

Since I consider myself to be a long-term supporter of Geller (I believe she is one of the bravest women in the world in her dedicated stand against Islamic terrorism - for which she has received nothing but abuse by the main stream media) that presumably also makes me a legitimate target for death from ISIS. And since the media has deemed that Geller (and free speech) - rather than the terrorists - are to blame for the terrorist attacks then the media is now not only covering up the threat of Islamic terrorism, but appears to be supporting its aims. Daniel Greenfield has an especially good analysis.

I heard Geller in a BBC radio interview yesterday and what she said sounded reasonable. But, and it's a big but, she supports the EDL. Surely you agree that's problematic, don't you?

I suggest you read this:

And in any case I'd be interested to know why the EDL are more of a problem than, say, the Greens, LibDems or even the Labour Party (see http://edgar1981.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/which-british-political-party-is-most.html)

Thanks for the link which helpfully makes it clear - unlike the media at the moment - that Geller renounced her support for the EDL because of what it was becoming (i.e. racist and antisemitic) by 2013.

But I don't get your other point. Surely, if the EDL are no worse than, say, the Greens, then associating oneself with them is nonetheless as problematic as associating oneself with the Greens (i.e. very problematic).
