Cartoon contest organizer known for inflammatory rhetoric
NEW YORK (AP) — The Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest that exploded in violence over the weekend in Texas was organized by Pamela Geller, a New Yorker who rails against Islam with such ferocity that one of the nation’s top civil rights groups lists her in its “extremist files.”
WHO IS PAMELA GELLER?
Geller, 56, is head of an organization called the American Freedom Defense Initiative, whose mission, according to tax records, is to act against “capitulation to the global jihad and Islamic supremacism.”
Through websites, books, ad campaigns and public events, Geller has been warning for years about the “Islamic machine” that she says threatens to destroy the U.S. SOURCE

I didn’t declare war on Islam, they declared war on me, you and everyone else not of their persuasion.
I believe that if we’re going to fight a war with Islam, well, by God, let’s fight a war and get on with it. We don’t need a histrionic, headline worshipping Drama Queen starting little *pissing contests* and then running back home to New York. If she wants to start the war in Texas she needs to STAY in Texas and fight the damned battle. Continue reading
