    He doesn't seem to be able to comprehend simple analogies either I see.

    The cartoon contest was needlessly provocative? No — murdering cartoonists is needlessly provocative.

    It was the jihadis, not I, who made the cartoons a flash point. If we surrender on that point and stop drawing Muhammad, we’ve established a precedent of surrendering to violent Sharia enforcement, and once established, we will be made to reinforce it again and again.

    Did anyone think these 2 gunmen would have lived quiet lives as peaceable and loyal Americans if we hadn’t held the contest? They would have waged jihad elsewhere, on a less protected target, and killed more people.

    “Pamela Geller: A Response to My Critics—This Is a War,” Time Magazine, May 6, 2015

    The shooting happened at my American Freedom Defense Initiative Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest, when two Islamic jihadists armed with rifles and explosives drove up to the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland and attempted to gain entry to our event, which was just ending. We were aware of the risk and spent thousands of dollars on security — and it paid off. The jihadis at our free speech event were not able to achieve their objective of replicating the massacre at the offices of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine last January — and to go it one better in carnage. They were not able to kill anyone. We provided enormous security, in concert with the superb Garland police department. The men who took the aspiring killers down may have saved hundreds of lives.

    And make no mistake: If it weren’t for the free-speech conference, these jihadis would have struck somewhere else — a place where there was less security, like the Lindt cafe in Australia or the Hyper Cacher Kosher supermarket in Paris.

    So, why are some people blaming me? They’re saying: “Well, she provoked them! She got what she deserved!” They don’t remember, or care to remember, that as the jihadis were killing the Muhammad cartoonists in Paris, their friend and accomplice was murdering Jews in a nearby kosher supermarket. Were the Jews asking for it? Did they “bait” the jihadis? Were they “provoking” them?

    Are the Jews responsible for the Nazis? Are the Christians in the Middle East responsible for being persecuted by Muslims?

    Drawing Muhammad offends Islamic jihadists? So does being Jewish. How much accommodation of any kind should we give to murderous savagery? To kowtow to violent intimidation will only encourage more of it.

    This is a war.

    Why does she hold some blame?

    People need to stop comparing Geller to Charlie Hebdo. Charlie Hebdo had a long history of satire aimed at different religious and political figures. Geller is a far-right anti-Muslim activist.

    To suggest they equate is beyond ridiculous.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    I'm a little perplexed as to why some people are worried about the feelers of radical Muslims.........

    She is "stirring the pot" so to say. And I would say she is doing it from a militant position not unlike radicals do.

    I personally don't give a **** about what happens to radical Muslims. The less of them the better.
