Pamela Geller: A Predictable Liar

by Omar Shtewi

Geller. The reasoned analyst.

I wrote here about Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan’s decision to authorise Turkish military vessels to escort future aid ships to Gaza in light of the Mavi Marmara massacre.

I joked that we should expect Spencer or Geller’s take on this to be something like

CRAZED MUSLIM JIHADIST DECLARES WAR AGAINST THE HELPLESS JEWISH STATE OF ISRAEL WITH A VIEW TO CONQUERING THE UNIVERSE AND OCCUPYING THE THRONE OF GOD.

After I hit ‘publish’ I logged out and went to Geller’s blog…  Where I found this:

TURKEY PREPARES FOR WAR WITH ISRAEL

The content of the post is even better.  Geller interprets the issue, which you can read about here at Haaretz, thus:

The newly islamicized [sic] Turkey escalates its hostile aggressions towards the tiny Jewish state. Today Turkey said it would increase hostilities against Israel by sending warships to escort the next round of jihad flotillas to Gaza.

So.  In the world of Geller, Turkey said it would increase hostilities against Israel.  It did no such thing.  It said it would send an escort with ships that take aid to the besieged Gaza Strip in future.  By no stretch of the imagination does this amount to announcement that it will increase hostilities.  While one could argue that Geller is simply stretching the meaning of Erdogan’s words – and the English language – to breaking point, I am inclined to believe that, based on the general standard maintained at her blog, that she is simply lying.

She goes on

Turkey is continuing its jihad against Israel. The jihad flotilla was a set-up; the ambush, the bloodshed: “We had no Choice”… [we]  did not expect to be landing in “a battlefield” and facing a group of “murderous mercenaries.”

The jihad flotilla warship launched from Turkey should have  resulted in sanctions against the Turkish government. Instead, the jihadist prime minister is promising to launch another with warship escorts.

Israel murdered nine Turkish civilians.  Turkey should be sanctioned.  This woman is, to remind you, a regular guest on Fox News.  Her bizarre views are beamed into millions of American homes.

From this, Geller then moves to her amazing claim that the ‘Muslim world was aligned with Hitler’ among other absurd and amazing tales.

Count how many times she uses the word ‘Jihad’ in this post.   I can’t be arsed.
