Occupy to Protest of 'Islamic Apartheid Conference'
TheBlaze ^ | April 20, 2012 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Occupy demonstrators at Temple University in Philadelphia are planning to protest an “Islamic Apartheid Conference” on Monday featuring activist Pamela Geller and sponsored by the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

The conference, billed as a “universal symbol of support and encouragement” for “women, gays [and] religious minorities, including Muslims themselves, who are figuratively and physically imprisoned by Shariah and Islam,” will feature Geller, Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch and activist Nonie Darwish as speakers. The event comes on the heels of an “Israeli Apartheid Week” hosted at the university last month.

To counter it, Occupy Temple is joining with the International Socialist Organization, Students for Justice in Palestine and the Party for Socialism and Liberation for a “multi-racial fightback against these racist hatemongers.”

“To counter it, Occupy Temple is joining...”

Wow, I got the feeling that these Occupy types were almost having a “religious experience” with their protests, but had no idea that now have their own Temple! Do they have a choir?

/sarc....maybe

The statue of Gaia inside the Temple is to die for.

As usual, the Left engages in projection when they use the term “racist hatemongers”.

There will be violence at this event. Islam permits it.

“O ye who believe! Smite upon the neck the infidels wherever you find them.” Koran 9-5

MSM coverage will consist of crickets.

For my money, Geller, Spencer, Deng, and Horowitz — though little recognized as such — are the ultimate front-line cultural warriors of our day.

While we have the Chamber of Commerce and such “Republicans” as Grover Norquist cozying up to the CAIR types, we have this small, brave crew exposing and confronting the Muslim threat where it is and as it is.

If they lose their fight, we are all goners — at least in terms of our liberties.

Grover Norquist is married to a Mooselimb and as Islamist Females are NOT allowed (though the contrary is permitted in this misogynist cult) to be married to NON-Muslim males, chances are pretty good that he has converted.

Moreover, his support and appeasement of Radical Islam/Sharia beginning with facilitating access to the highest levels of Government (and EVERY Agency) to include the White Hut going back to Boosh (who he convinced to claim that Islam was a "Religion of Peace") as well as helping to place radical Islamist in charge of the Moozie Chaplain Program (vetting all Imams, much like leaving the proverbial Fox in charge of the hen house) makes him one of the most DANGEROUS, TRAITOROUS, BOTTOM-FEEDING, SNAKES, pretending to be a "Conservative."

I spit on this slime-ball, cockroach!

There are those who see any criticism of Muslim fundamentalists as racist, and therefore to be opposed. Others, like Women Against Fundamentalism, while fighting against the racialization of Islam, see as both racist and sexist the reification of Black communities as separate 'others' in whose internal conflicts and political struggles ...

Europeans criticize Muslim intolerance of other (non-Muslim) points of view - basic liberties and natural freedoms - and for their justifying violence and terrorism in defending Islam against its enemies. Meanwhile, Muslim apologists condemn the West in general...

There are those who complain that it is practically impossible to criticize Muslim immigrants, not even the militant political Islamists among them who occasionally resort to extremism. It is "logically absurd and morally unacceptable", they argue, that writers who speak out against militant Islam are immediately branded racist:

As soon as a writer expresses an opinion against Islamism, immediately someone on the left leaps to his feet and claims that because the majority of Muslims are dark-skinned, he who criticises it is racist. This is logically absurd and morally unacceptable. Martin [Amis] is not a racist.
