Pam Geller Vs. Anjem Choudary: Radical Imam Wants ‘Capital Punishment’ For Cartoons


Pamela Geller, the head of the organization that put on the Muhammed Art exhibit, faced off against radical London imam Anjem Choudary on Hannity Wednesday night. Geller, the president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), was named as a target in a “message to the crusaders” posted on a social media site this week by alleged ISIS terrorist Abu Ibrahim Al Ameriki. The message entitled “A New Era,” claimed ISIS has 71 “trained soldiers” in 15 states awaiting orders to attack targets, and called for the “slaughter” of Ms. Geller.

“Our aim was the khanzeer (pig) Pamela Geller and to show her that we don’t care what land she hides in or what sky shields her,” the threatening message read. “We will send all our Lions to achieve her slaughter.”

Choudary, who was one of nine men arrested by Scotland Yard as part of a major investigation into Islamist terrorism last September, said that khanzeer (pig) was too good of a word to use to describe Geller.

“First of all, the word khanzeer is too good for you,” Choudary said.

ISIS officially claimed responsibility for the attack on a Muhammed art exhibit in Texas on Sunday through their Al Bayan radio station Tuesday, calling the failed terrorists “two soldiers of the caliphate.” Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, two Phoenix roommates, drove 1,100 miles from their apartment to carry out the failed attack. Simpson, 31, was an American Muslim convert who appears to have become radicalized over the last decade and Soofi, 34, a Pakistani-American, grew up in a Muslim family in Texas but studied Islamic theology in Islamabad.

The event offered a $10,000 prize for the best caricature of the Prophet Muhammad, which imam Anjem Choudary said warrants “capital punishment.”
