We have many times seen here at Jihad Watch how Leftists and Islamic supremacists are enemies of the freedom of speech, who work to shut down and demonize their opponents rather than engaging us on substance. They can't engage us on substance, of course, because what we say is true. And here is a fascinating glimpse into how they operate when they work to silence voices of freedom. Pamela Geller explains:

Here is the latest on Habeebgate, the attempt by Habeeb Ahmed of the Nassau County Human Rights Commission to deploy a small coterie of leftists and Islamic supremacists in a covert effort to intimidate the Great Neck synagogue into cancelling my scheduled speech there.

Habeeb Ahmed is reportedly the uncle of Farhat "Daisy" Khan, the wife of the Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, the unscrupulous Islamic supremacist grifter behind the failed attempt (which we successfully blocked) to plant a 16-story victory mosque at Ground Zero.

The fact that Farhat and Habeeb are blood relatives shows that the Islamic supremacists are a small but powerful group, that makes up in influence what it lacks in real numbers. They act as if they think they're Don Corleone, maneuvering behind the scenes, pulling the puppet strings of politicians. When the rock on their scheming over the Great Neck synagogue was lifted, we really saw how this machine operates -- like the rackets, like the mafia.

Here's how: notice that they didn't make a public call to cancel my talk. They didn't go public because they knew that if they did, we would win. Even if they had succeeded in getting the talk canceled, we would have won in the court of public opinion, just as we did when the Jewish Federation of Los Angeles canceled my talk there last summer.

And so instead of going public, this leftist/Islamic supremacist cabal worked in the shadows. Habeeb and his accomplices ordered their minions to make calls, and to get to the synagogue leaders -- all on the QT, with nothing public -- just some strongarm calling. They wanted to make the cancellation of my talk happen before anybody knew what hit them. And if they had succeeded, once the cancellation happened and became public, and became the cause of a great controversy and scandal, the synagogue leaders wouldn't have been able to go back and reverse themselves again to allow my talk, because they would have looked enormously stupid.

This is the difference between them and us. We operate in sunlight, and they operate covertly, under cover of darkness.

Tom Trento unearthed the emails, and Pamela Geller has them:

The group I was speaking with last night who gave me this information suggested contacting other rabbis in the area who would then contact the Great Neck Synagogue. They also talked about contacting the chief rabbi of the big synagogue in Manhattan and asking him to contact Great Neck Synagogue.

Warm regards,

Dear friends,
I have telephoned the Great Neck Synagogue (516-487-6100) and found no one who knew anything about this other than that it was scheduled by their Men's Club. I left a message and asked that someone return my call. I specifically said, "This is the equivalent of a church in the 1930s inviting a representative of the Nazi Party to speak. Pam Geller has been labeled by both
the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center as a leader of a hate group." I mentioned that I am a representative of The Interfaith Alliance of Long Island and a
member of The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Shelter Rock.
I suggest that, regardless of whatever else we do, each of us calls the Synagogue to protest their inviting a noted hate-monger to a house of worship.

Hello All,
I think Bob has a wonderful suggestion for now. Let's start calling the Great Neck Synagogue at 516 487 6100 and tell them that it is not befitting a religious organization to invite a bigot and a known Islamophobe. Request that you would like to speak with the Rabbi and if he is not available then leave a message for him. Please do this tomorrow and pass on this message to your friends and family.

Subject: Re: Pam Geller to speak in Great Neck

I called yesterday, introduced myself, and said that before I started organizing protests, I wanted to confirm if what I had heard was true, since it was hard to believe that a synagogue would host somebody who'd been condemned as a bigot and hate-monger by the Anti-Defamation League.
A somewhat perplexed secretary put me through to one of the rabbis yesterday, who said he knew nothing about her coming but apparently the men's club invited her. I told him that I hoped they would reconsider, since this was highly offensive to me and doubtless to many other folks, the equivalent of a church inviting a Nazi who claimed Jews were trying to take over America or a mosque inviting an anti-Semite who claimed that Jews were trying to impose kosher laws on the nation. I also allowed as how the men's club could have done this without his knowledge, telling him how when I worked at Riverside Church, the Men's Club regularly invited right wing fanatics to speak to their "class" on Sunday mornings.

I think that calling is better at this stage than public protests, both because the synagogue's leaders may truly be surprised and embarrassed by what the men's group has done and because we should avoid giving Geller free publicity: I think she gets off on being so offensive that it draws attention to herself.

Thanks Tom for making the call. I called today and they did not put me thru to the Rabbi. They just took message and hung up. Tom is right at this point lets all make calls and speak to the Rabbi. Let's tell our friends and family to do the same. Send this to all your email lists. We all can send email to the Rabbi.

Phone number of Great Neck Synagogue: 516 487 6100
Main Rabbi: Rabbi Dale Polakoff
Rabbi's email: rabbi@gns.org

Thanks

I don't see this as a "War on free speech", but as a battle OF free speech. Seems to me that Geller does a pretty good job of working to shut down and demonize her opponents rather than engaging them on substance also. This kind of protest/tactics in reaction to a proposed speaker who holds opposing views to others in the community is rather common all across the country, and not just when the topic is Islam. Sometimes the protests work, sometimes they don't. That, too, is part of the process of free speech. Complaining about it is as much a tactic as the protest.

Of course Nyack and Roger........neither one of you can see anything that is not liberal motivated! If it's not a liberal view point...you can't see it! It's called CLOSED MINDED!
