    We have to go out of our way to accommodate Muslims, even to the extent of falsifying what is contained in the Koran and what is actually happening in the workplace. If you don’t fall in line, you’re called an Islamophobe. We’re that afraid of confronting Islam or offending Muslims. This certainly doesn’t help the cause of those who wish to reform Islam but the liberals have no clue.

    We’re supposed to be thrilled or excited by a women in a hijab being a fencer? Why? Because that proves Muslim women can fence? Who said they couldn’t? Because that proves that not all Muslims are terrorists? Who says they are? Because that proves we’re not bigoted? Yeah, that’s it.

    BTW How many female athletes are there in the Olympics from Muslim countries? How many of them face enormous obstacles from their families and the societies they live in? All female Muslim athletes do, unless they live in the US. Who are the bigots/sexists here? see: “The biggest challenge I faced was my training, as Pakistan is a male-dominated society where women do not get proper facilities and female trainers are nowhere to be found … Women sometimes leave their sports as their parents are not comfortable leaving girls alone on male ground.” Kiran Khan, 24, Swimmer http://mic.com/articles/127163/meet-the-athletes-shattering-stereotypes-about-muslim-women-in-sports#.6XQyoBvie

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      I seem to remember muslim Olympic swimmers refusing to swim in a pool because an Israeli Jew was competing against them — in the same pool.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Ah yes, another great freedom of islam, that of submitting and doing as you are told, men who think your are about of the same value as a goat, there is evidence that when muslim girls get mutilated, it is almost in defiance of the qur’an. “For Muslims, cliterodectomy and infibulation should be considered harâm (prohibited) practices and opposition to it should be part of our ongoing mandate to fight against superstition and oppression. As to the mildest form of female circumcision, the risks to the girl’s future ability to enjoy sexual relations with her husband must place it at best in the category of makrûh (disliked) practices. Since it has neither hygienic nor religious value, there is no justification for Muslims to engage in this painful and potentially harmful practice and it would be best to avoid it completely” Very surprising that you are capable of a rational statement.

  • Josiah Longknife

    Hope they take the safety devices off when this whore of Islam enters the arena.

  • CameoRed

    Muslims and swords. How appropriate.

  • Beach_Road_Mauler

    Colmes has that sickly creep look about him. My first impression of him is that he’s queer as a three dollar bill. He reminds me a lot of Richard Quest on CNN whose been arrested in NYC’s Central Park for trolling public restrooms naked after midnight. The fact that he defends Muslims is no surprise. Most liberal creeps do despite the fact that Muslims would have no problem killing him.

  • CameoRed

    Alan Colmes and his producers seem to have written only one question in prep for this interview. Alan kept asking the same question over and over and over again, and did not seem capable of grasping the answer — like a seven year old kid stuck on repeat.

    Pamela, you showed a great deal of patience.

    • Dr. Doomsday

      Thats actually a sign of low intelligence, and typical liberalism. Pamela’s answers were not contained on his 1 selection menu, so he kept going back to the top, expecting a solution somehow..

    • Dave J Lawson

      this is a non issue blown out of proportion , its better to stick to islam that interferes , discriminates with others belief system and special accomodation.

      This fencer gets nothing special other than her dumb hijab

      • Dr. Doomsday

        Nice of you to miss the point. The point is, if it were any other religion, it would not even be news. But this is news, because they want to push Islam. DUH?

        • Dave J Lawson

          Its news bcoz pamela objected to it , how do you counter it ?

  • syracuselana

    He’s an idiot!

    • Dr. Doomsday

      At our house, we call him, “Ant Man” for his insect like face.

      • DowntotheBone

        Are you referring to Skeletor?

        • Dr. Doomsday

          LOL no, it was a generalization, but we did call the CSPAN guy who does the book review that, or The Red Skull, as his more skeletal features became more pronounced as he got older.. Brian Lamb I think is his name.. I forget..

        • NoBamaYoMama

          aka “Rat Face”. The plastic surgeon wasn’t kind to this one!

        • Not Politically Correct

          I have the movie MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE ‘Saved’ on my list!

      • Not Politically Correct

        It’s better than what I call him…

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    I can’t watch this interview, I might end up putting my fist thru my computer monitor.

    • Not Politically Correct

      I didn’t watch it either. Scary that! 💀

  • Arnold Layne

    Why didn’t Pam call him on his fake argument? Name one business that provides space or time for jewish prayer. Unless it is a Jewish business, they don’t, and I don’t even know of a Jewish business that has separate areas for prayer. This muslim crap will be shoved down our throats until we violently rebel. Muzzy’s never left a people alone unless violently forced to do so and we need to start doing so or we will lose our children’s inheritance.

    • ljm4

      she did, about 5 times! Over and over and over again. Listen to it again and count how many times she starts over trying to get him to understand.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      This is why I couldn’t watch this interview. The only computer safe interviews I can watch w/Mrs. Geller are the ones she does w/Hannity.

    • Phleb

      Here’s a true story: At my local Walmart they had hired the friendliest, funniest woman as a cashier. I always tried to go down her line cause, you always leave the store with a smile on your face due to her disposition.
      One day I got in her line behind some women who were in full head to toe Muslim gear; you couldn’t even see their eyes. When it was their turn, the cashier turned to look at them for the first time, you could tell this was the first time she had ever experienced anything like it and she said, “Is this a stick-up?”She had a huge grin on her face. She thought she was being funny and we all thought that it was funny too, all but the muslims, who demanded to see a manager “Right Now!
      – – They were Offended!! – –
      Anyway, the great cashier was fired!
      We tried to speak up for her to mgmt. but since we WEREN’T muslims, our opinion didn’t carry any weight.

      I haven’t shopped at Walmart since and the cashier… she’s making people smile over at Bass Pro Shop.

      • roger

        Well done, ( I mean about her new job).

      • Mash

        It happened here in London. A bunch of “muslums”, clad in heavy-duty burgas, went shopping in, “Selfridges” jewellery section. They were greeted enthusiastically, rich muslim women , that they were. As the shop assistants unveiled expensive jewellery, the “ladies” unveiled a bunch of weapons from underneath their burkas and stole a lot of stuff, frightening other shoppers around them.

        Just like Osama, morons hiding under the burka…

        • Phleb

          What a tragedy, our government being complicit with the quiet mooslim invasion. Shakespeare would have a ball!

  • VLParker

    Colmes is so typical of leftard loons. If he can’t see the difference between the demands made by muslims and the behavior of practitioners of all other religions it’s because he doesn’t want to see it.

  • relligionMuslimkills

    This fool is an idiot. I do not like this guy. And I love Pamela Geller. Shes is freaking hot

  • livingengine

    love her, bored by him.

  • ljm4

    He has to be the most thick headed person on radio.

    What an amazing bit of video to see; he just is not hearing what she is saying.

    Alan is a perfect example of a one track mind!

    • wildjew

      Colmes kept repeating this notion that Orthodox Jews wear yarmulkes, pray, etc., at work comparing observant Jews to devout Muslims. If he can find an example where Orthodox Jews imposed their / our religion on non-Jews or inconvenienced non-Jewish workers in order to accommodate their observance, I would oppose it. Pamela says it isn’t happening and it shouldn’t be happening. I will take her word for it since Mr. Colmes did not cite any examples.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      I’ll bet he had an agenda and he was trolling for a particular response from Mrs. Geller that he could use against her. This is why I can’t watch these interviews.

      • ljm4

        I do watch because unlike poor Rubio she had several different ways to explain the same thing. He just could not decode incoming information. He’s as we used to say in the old days: set in his ways.
        I want to hear the artful way to go around one more time with the example.

      • KeepChristinChristmas

        You could be right and I cannot watch the MSM anymore. Especially Fox. After it came out a little while ago about the open borders and NWO, I was completely done.

      • Dr. Doomsday

        Alan? An agenda? Whatever gave you that idea? ;)

  • Gina

    This guy is really, really thick. Did he graduate from high school? Pamela’s points were very clear and valid. Keep up the good work Pamela!

  • fulham2014

    The false equivalence between Jews and Muslims, one small group of over achievers who do not wish to convert anyone, and a huge group of under achievers who want to convert and oppress everybody else.

  • KeepChristinChristmas

    Colmes is so annoying that I couldn’t finish watching the interview. It was like he deliberately wouldn’t acknowledge the issue. I don’t know if it’s PC or he doesn’t have any common sense.

  • Judi

    How many times is this idiot going to mention a Jew wearing a yarmulke?

    • Dr. Doomsday

      The guy is a one schtick pony..

  • Ichabod Crain

    Well I must be just as thick as Alan Colmes because I just didn’t get it. I didn’t get Pamela’s point about this musilima wearing a hijab. I certainly got the other stuff about the work place having to accommodate Muslims and all that but that has nothing to do with this girl wearing a hijab.

    I have seen Pamela in so many debates, and she’s brilliant and I truly admire her and the work she is doing, but I think she blew it in this interview. What’s wrong with this girl wearing a hijab? That isn’t an imposition on anybody besides her and I fail to see the problem. So Pamela says the problem is that that is somehow newsworthy, but Pamela made it newsworthy, not Fox. Pamela used it as a jumping off point to speak about other issues on her own site.

    Also, I didn’t see anything wrong with the interviewer Alan Colmes. He seemed to be polite and respectful and was trying to give Pamela a chance to explain, but what was their to explain? So he asked about how it is any different than a Jew wearing a yarmulke, and for the life of me I can’t see any. Now I have fought against the old “false equivalence” argument a hundred times in these boards, but in this case, it wasn’t really that kind of thing. As he was saying, how is that different than a yarmulke or any other kind of hat?

    • Luigi Valentino

      Pamela is saying that because she’s a Muslim not killing people the media is making a big fuss over her religion. Other fencers of other faiths are not killing people too. Where’s their news stories. Does this help un thicken you?

      • Ichabod Crain

        I get what you’re saying, but do you think the public at large would get it? Like – it’s a point not worth making. I say, bide your time. The Muslims in America will offer you a better opportunity soon enough to make a point. That is guaranteed. They can’t help revealing themselves.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      “Islamophobic” is a word “created by fascists and used by cowards to manipulate morons.” So which role do you play?

      • Ichabod Crain

        Me? I am an Islamocritic.

  • EJO

    Mr. Madison; ( Colmes ) What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

  • Luigi Valentino
  • ColonelNeville

    Relentlessly repeating the same leftist incompetence and treasonous lies is what Alan Colmes does. He has nothing else to offer.

  • kilkman

    They are after the first amendment. Freedoms allowed by the first amendment are not the issue, It’s Muslim compliance with the first amendment. Their only grievance is that we wont conform to Islam. That is not protected. You can’t fire me because I refuse to work on Sabbath. But if the ability to work those hours sunset Friday to sunset Saturday is required. I can’t sue them for not hiring me. I am free to choose another position, But the choice is mine. Forcing prayer spaces, changing dress codes ect. are unconstitutional as they afford preferential treatment to followers of a single doctrine. Acceptance of constitutional values should be a requirement for potential immigrants, A divided house cannot stand. Anyone preaching anti american values should be deported. anyone holding to anti-American Ideologies should be ineligible for citizenship/Work visas. No need to go on the attack against 1st amendment rights. but anyone standing against those rights should be ineligible. Can’t be Pro Sharia and Pro-American.

  • mdy616

    Is Alan really that thick in the skull? She kept trying to explain she did not care about what she wears, what she is upset about is that the media is making her garb a news story!! Alan cannot understand we do not have news stories about the Catholic Olympian wearing a cross and making a huge deal about his cross!

    Then he cannot even grasp how all the accommodations made for muslims is NEVER enough for them! They take and take and take. “Are you saying prayer should not be accommodated for any religion?” ALAN YOU ARE A MORON AND ARE NOT LISTENING TO HER!! He just keeps on trying to put words in her mouth and trying to make it sound like she is saying something she is not! THIS is EXACTLY the point Pamela is trying to make with Alan. The media wants to make ANYTHING muslim great and anyone who says something against it is islamaphobic and then try to twist their words! Alan, you have made her point beautifully and you did not even realize it!!

  • Phleb

    Wow! They can’t stand the fact that people push back on iSlam. I’ve noticed everytime the MSM interviews Pamela, they ask her a question, and she has to repeat herself over and over again. They don’t get it!! (purposely)

  • Janis

    Alan is a moron, and he plays with words to try and make Pamela look like she has an issue with Islam imposing itself on the rest of society, when even women of the Islamic faith feel they have been made “invisible” by the shrouded tents they are forced to wear.

    Qanta A. Ahmed, MD, is a Muslim doctor who shares in her book, “In the Land of Invisible Women; A Female Doctor’s Journey in the Saudi Kingdom”, her feelings on the confinement of the hijab/abbayah.:

    “This veiling was anathema to me. Even with a deep understanding of Islam, I could not imagine mummification is what an enlightened, merciful God would ever have wished for half of all His creation. These shrouded, gagged silences rise into a shrieking register of muted laments for stillborn freedoms. Such enforced incarceration of womanhood is a form of female infanticide. Throughout the Kingdom, short, tiny prepubertal girls could be seen tripping over their abbayahs.

    While these veils conceal women, at the same time they expose the rampant, male oppression which is their jailor. Polyester imprisonment by compulsion, is ungodly, and (like the fiber) distinctly man-made… These were the rules of Sharia Law.”

  • Anticonservative

    The main difference is the guy with the Yamaka is hypothetical and this muslim wearing her hijab is factual. I know of no Jewish prayer time being tolerated in any place of business- nor is there Christian prayer time tolerated during business hours- nor any other religion. Allan of course knew this and that is why he concentrated on the fictitious Yamaka wearing fencers rather than dealing with reality. I think the point Pamela attempted to make is that this muslim wouldn’t have even been a news worthy story if not for the rag on her head- which is true.

  • roger

    Someone is going to have to spend some “quality time” with Alan Colmes, and fill him in on a few things. If it can’t be sorted out with a lump of four by two, then we’ll have to try something else.

  • Alan Colmes is a EXTREME LEFT-WING LIBERAL and Anti-Christian and Jewish people!!

    The FALSE PAGANISM OCCULT-IDEOLOGY of islam is NOT a religion PERIOD!!

    The FALSE PAGAN moon god allah-satan Baal is NOT a god PERIOD, it is just one of over 360 FALSE PAGANISM OCCULT-IDEOLOGY gods that came out of the middle east Arab nations!!

    The FALSE PAGAN moon god allah-satan Baal is NOT the god of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob!!

    United We Stand with Israel-Yisrael and our Judeo-Christian Nation United States of America, Divided We FALL!!

    Please PRAY for our Judeo-Christian Nation United States of America and Israel-Yisrael and our Christian Earth EVERYDAY!! “Pray Without Ceasing.” ( 1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV )!!

    Love Always and Shalom Everyone,

    Kristi

  • conan_drum

    Are the Jews seeking to impose their religion on non Jews, have they ever? Of course not because Judaism is a religion for Jews. Are Jews claiming everybody will bow down to allah or convert? No. Are Muslims doing those things? Absolutely

  • Kris

    Jews imposing judaism? Lol. Try to become a Jew and see if it is easy.

  • joker

    This Colmes bloke has a hang up with Orthodox Jews, it seems. Thick as two planks (apparently) he does not understand that if Orthodox Jews work it will be among themselves. They are imposing nada to no-one.

  • Evil Liberal

    Be sure and check out Vlad Tepes Blog for a detailed account of an anti immigrant march and how the “AntiFa” group tried to provoke violence

  • VictorMC

    Perfect FOX news garbage !! Colmes should be fired – no chance.

  • VictorMC

    Anybody who employs a Muslim is INSANE.

  • Madhavi

    Pamela didn’t present her case well. She should have pointed out that this Olympic hijab is part of a larger agenda. ; and -in response to his absurd yarmulke comparison -that there are only a handful of Jews in the world compared to the Muslim population and there is no global Jewish jihad , no Jewish teachings to convert everyone to Judaism ( Quite the opposite ! Very difficult to ” become a Jew”) no Jewish agenda make the whole world submit to a Jewish caliphate, etc Whereas all the above are true of Islam!
    His comparison was ludicrous .
    Jews have always and only wanted to live in peace -either amongst the nations of the world or in their own. But they are never allowed to.
    Alan Colmes Is either the stupidest person on the planet or has sold his soul to the devil so that he can make a living .

  • sodacrackers2

    He was afraid of Pamela, I think. He was a bit less obnoxious than usual.

  • tarandfeatherthecrooks

    What’s with the poor sound for Pamela Geller?

    We need millions more like Ms. Geller.

    Just knock the towel off her head, match over. Then the Muslim men (?) will stone her to death. A win win.

  • Patriot girl

    Good job Pamela! I don’t know how you do being questioned by these LEFTWING brainwashed pundits.. They’re not journalists but dhimmi talking heads for CAIR , etc. Alan Coombs has long made me ill with his disgusting anti-American positions and forever pandering to BLM and violent terrorist Muslims and the like! Always defending them, never the real citizens whose lives are destroyed by these animals! I don’t know how many different ways you had to say the same thing Pamela but you did and KO’d that traitor but good! Thank you for your patriotism and selfless hardwork on behalf of us all.. I do what I can by writing and protesting to my horrible reps (the liar Cherokee E. Warren, the jihadi caucus member, markey and lastly THE MUSLIM SAVAGE LOVING REP NEAL DEMONCRAPS ALL!! ALL TRAITORS TO MASSACHUSETTS AND OUR PEOPLE! ) I am just so disgusted and sickened by them I don’t know why I bother but I’m constantly a thorn in their side and proud to be one! God bless and keep you safe Pamela! History will be kinder to you then these horrid pundits who despise anything American! But as I note, history will see you for the patriot you are and champion of our dwindling rights given to us by God n our founding fathers! You will be the woman known as the truth bearer, beacon of truth and light against the infiltration of the devilish satan loving Islam! I am a proud islamafauxb!!!

  • Up Huff

    Alan Colmes is a typical media azzhole. He is totally unable to accept the fact that they’re totally discriminatory in their “news” broadcasting and refuse to pay attention to the rationality of opposing views while their own position is either irrational or untenable logically.
    Which is why I won’t listen to any of them. Moreover, when I DO happen to be on one of the networks I make a conscious effort to take note of the advertisers and to intentionally NOT purchase their products. They have the choice to support those networks with their advertising dollars of course, but I have just as much right to spend my consumer dollars on products and with companies that don’t support biased networks.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Make sure the companies know why you’re not buying their products.

  • Ron Cole

    Kommerade Colmes must have felt that he is in the wrong scam after dealing with our Truth Mistress Pamela Geller.
    Thank you Mam for putting that putch down.

    Is she any good at her sport? If she isn’t then why make her important?

  • joe1429

    Go pam!! Colmes is a douschebag, that is why fox canceled him from “hannity and colmes show”

  • lehnne

    Alan Colmes the very best in evidence free commentary

  • Mr Paul Middleton

    THE PROBLEM IS the mainstream media’s predilection for promoting Islam!
    Good for Pam – she’s never fooled!

  • Andinz

    I wonder if the rules allow this head and ear cover. If the hijab becomes popular, someone (not suggesting who) might decide to wear ear phones connected to a coach who could point out weaknesses in the opposition.

  • Keith

    Good interview, I just wish that interviewers would be as diligent in questioning of others. I have noticed that they will interview a pressure group and the questioning is all easy going and sympathetic then interview the government and the questioning is forceful and direct.
    When it comes to Islam it is even easier they are allowed to make speeches about how peaceful Islam is without any challenge what so ever.
    Well that is what happens here in the UK I am not sure about the US but I will bet it is the same.
