GUARDIAN UK NEWS...The international network of counter-jihadist groups that inspired Anders Behring Breivik is growing in reach and influence, according to a report released on the eve of the Norwegian's trial. Far-right organisations are becoming more cohesive as they forge alliances throughout Europe and the US, says the study, with 190 groups now identified as promoting an Islamophobic agenda.
Breivik is now on trial in Oslo after confessing to the murder of 77 people in Norway last July, killings that he justified as part of a "war" between the west and Islamists. The report, by anti-racism group Hope Not Hate, states that since the 33-year-old's killing spree, the counter-jihad movement – a network of foundations, bloggers, political activists and street gangs – has continued to proliferate, see the Hope Not Hate webiste http://www.hopenothate.org.uk/
Campaigners cite the formation three months ago of the Stop Islamization of Nations (Sion) group (headed up by Pamela Geller in the USA), designed to promote an umbrella network of counter-jihad groups across Europe and the US, as evidence of a global evolution. Another development concerns the hardening of links between European and US anti-Islamic organisations. US blogger Pamela Geller is a key figure driving closer transatlantic relations. Geller, who is president of Sion, was mentioned in Breivik's manifesto and was a vociferous protester against the development of a mosque in Lower Manhattan in 2010. MORE FROM THIS SOURCE.
SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER, Hate in the Mainstream Spring 2012. Pamela Geller is the anti-Muslim movement's most visible and flamboyant figurehead. She's relentlessly shrill and coarse in her broad-brush denunciations of Islam and makes preposterous claims, such as that President Obama is the "love child" of Malcolm X. Pamela Geller is the "new" president of Stop Islamization of Nations (SION).
Married in 1990 to Michael Oshry, Geller spent the 1990s and most of the 2000s as a well-to-do Long Island housewife. After divorcing in 2007, she mostly busied herself rearing her four children, writing blogs and posting slam poetry-style videos trashing all things liberal on her YouTube channel.
Pamela Geller and Oshry were co-owners, along with Christ Tsiropoulous, of at least two car dealerships before the Gellers divorced in 2007. That was the same year Collin Thomas, one of their salesmen, was gunned down while closing their dealership, Universal Auto World, one evening.
The investigation into the murder uncovered an alleged fraud ring. According to the New York Daily News, employees enabled "underground characters," including "known" drug dealers, to buy luxury cars using fake identities. Eleven people who worked for the dealership, including Tsiropoulous, were arrested, but Pamela Geller escaped the scandal unscathed, (SO FAR, as the murder investigation continues.)
SION: Hate Groups Unite to Form an International Hate Coalition. International hate groups have just announced that they are uniting in a global anti-Muslim coalition. Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) and Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE) are joining together in a coalition called Stop Islamization of Nations (SION).
These groups like the “new” Klan define themselves in positive terms. They have selected Pamela Geller as the first President, and Robert Spencer as the first Vice-President of this International coalition. They identify Geller as an internationally renowned human rights activist and Executive Director of SIOA.
In addition to Geller and Spencer, they identify their first Board of Directors as: Dr. Ali Sina, Dr. Wafa Sultan, Stefan Herre, Dr. Mordechai Kedar, Babu Suseelan, and Anders Gravers. They describe this group as “human rights activists”, “pro-freedom activists”, “freedom fighters”, etc .
