Geller goes global (again)

SION logoThe forces of counterjihad have apparently made another historically decisive advance with the launch of a new international organisation, Stop Islamization of Nations (SION).

To quote the characteristically pompous press release announcing this new development:

Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) and Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE) are joining together to create a new global force determined to defend free societies globally: Stop Islamization of Nations (SION)….

SIOA and SIOE are the foremost organizations in America and Europe dedicated to defending human rights, religious liberty, freedom of conscience and the freedom of speech against Islamic supremacist intimidation and attempts to bring elements of Sharia to the West.

At the helm of SION as its founding President is the internationally renowned human rights activist and Executive Director of SIOA, Pamela Geller…. Vice President is the acclaimed bestselling author and Islam expert, Robert Spencer

As Richard Bartholomew points out, this is not the first time that Geller and her friends have launched such an organisation, and the last one – billed as the “Global Freedom Initiative” – fizzled out with the embarrassing cancellation of a planned “transatlantic anti-jihad summit conference” in Strasbourg last July.

Richard also notes that, with the launch of SION, Geller and Spencer have formalised links with a Hindutva activist named Babu Suseelan. Geller and Spencer endlessly denounce “Islamic supremacism” but evidently have no problem allying themselves with Hindu supremacism.
