December 20th, 2016 by Pamela Geller —
It’s ironic and pathetic, but clearly illustrative of how damaged and sick Jewish leftists are, that a publication entitled the Times of Israel denies, not once but twice, my application to write a blog. They invite anyone and everyone, but denied me. Instead, they have just run the smear and defamation against me of Fiyaz Mughal, the hate-filled lying propagandist in the U.K. who supported the ban on my entry.
Fiyaz Mughal has a notorious reputation in the counter-terror community. His group lost its government funding in the U.K. back in 2013 for lying about anti-Muslim hate crimes. Mughal is, in his way, just as destructive as the Muslim fighters who drop bombs to conquer infidels and impose Shariah. Mughal is dropping bombs in the information battle-space disarming and deceiving the kuffar.
In his Times of Israel column, he whines:
Geller seems to believe that I was instrumental in influencing a banning order being attached to her which is ludicrous since a number of organisations objected to her entry into the UK in 2013, where she was to give a speech shortly after the brutal terrorist murder of Lee Rigby. No doubt that speech would have contained toxic references to Islam and Muslims being a threat to Western society which is the general drift of her narrative. Whatever, you may think of this position, and I hope that it would raise alarm bells, Geller plays the “freedom” vs. “Islamic tyranny” line like an orchestra in full swing. However, a deeper look at her past comments show more to her than meets the eye.
Truth is now ludicrous. I didn’t allege that Mughal was involved; that was clear from the documents released under the duty of candor when we were challenging our ban. The documents were redacted to conceal who was behind the ban, but their black marker missed one reference, revealing that one of the groups complaining about us was Faith Matters. Faith Matters was founded by none other than Fiyaz Mughal.
Take for example, her belief that the Srebrenica massacre in 1995 was a hoax. In fact, she made these claims repeatedly. More bizarrely, she claims that Serbia was not a threat to its neighbours and that the Clinton attack on Serbia in 1999 was “in order to pave the way for an Islamic state in the heart of Europe – Kosovo.”
Just to add insult to grave injury, in this article she stated: “The facts stand. Seven to eight thousand slaughter (in Srebrenica) is not even remotely possible. 3,000 Muslim troops were redeployed without their families being told, (there is Muslim confirmations of this). No one ‘saw’ a single atrocity. And 38,000 out of 40,000 survived the ‘genocide.’”
By adding the quotes to “genocide” it was pretty clear that she was disputing that Srebrenica was a genocide and she was effectively, a genocide denier. This in contrast with the fact that our previous Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon David Cameron MP had financially supported Srebrenica memorial day as a national event in the UK, precisely to mark the genocide.”
Here’s a good piece exposing the continuing Islamic myth behind the Srebrenica narrative. It all began with a big lie. Clearly, both sides committed ugly atrocities – it’s war, that’s what happens. Little of the terror the Bosnians wrought on the Serbs is ever referenced. And yes, in that war, I sided with the Serbs. But to call a couple of hundred or even a couple thousand of deaths a genocide is a lie. The Muslim world refuses to call the Armenian holocaust a “genocide,” and there were millions of victims. Many Muslim world leaders deny the holocaust was a genocide, despite the extermination of over half the global Jewish population. So Mughal’s faux outrage is laughable. Nor have I hard him decry the ongoing genocide of millions of Christians in the Middle East in jihad wars.
Or take the fact that Geller supports “alt-right media,” sources of media that are run by people with far right ideologies. Or take the fact that she used the term “House Jew” and stated that Obama is an anti-Semite and a “Jihadi” in the White House. Or take the fact that she smeared the well respected and well run Community Security Trust which provides anti-Semitic hate incident third party services to Jewish communities, as well as much needed safety to Jewish institutions across England.
In this article in 2009 Geller stated: “Much like the Jewish councils of World War II Germany that helped assist in what would become the extermination of the Jews, we are witnessing Jewish groups like the CST aiding and abetting Islamic jihad and Islamic anti-Semitism.”
In fact, more recently in 2016, Geller decided to once again attack one of the most respected hate crime organisation in the United Kingdom – the Community Security Trust. She stated: “This poll which shows a vicious Jew hatred among Muslims in the UK. This despite the subservience and craven cowardice of UK Jewish leadership. Jewish ‘leadership’ in the UK (including the Community Security Trust quoted here) supported my ban in the UK. My opposition to jihad and sharia, and my unwavering support of Israel led to my ban and these cretins supported it. Despite their grovelling, look at the poll results.”
Mughal pats the CST on the head like the good little doggie they are. They are weak and cowed, having long abandoned their true role of standing in defense of the Jewish people. These organizations are a pox on our house, standing by while Jew-hatred explodes. CST stands with the haters, throwing brave Jews who stand up against it under the bus, much the way they did during our ban. Not only did they stay silent – they signed off on the ban.
You see, it is not the fact that Geller ardently supports Israel that led to her ban and nor should it ever be the case. A simple and cursory look and review of her comments clearly show, without even referencing her anti-Muslim bigotry, that she was “not conducive to the public good” in the UK as the then Home Secretary deemed her to be. If anything, genocide deniers and those calling people “House Jews” and supportive of far right media sources should stay where they are – in her case in the United States.
“Far right”: the leftist/Islamic dysphemism for pro-freedom voices. In reality, the fact that I was banned for being pro-Israel is quite clear from this document we received in our duty of candor request:
Mughal is, as has often been noted, nothing more than a mendacious grievance-mongering taqiyya artist.
