A Statement from Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer of the Freedom Defense Initiative

It has come to our attention today that Martin Mawyer,
who had been scheduled to appear with us at the premiere of Mawyer's film Islam Rising
in Los Angeles on May 1, has had attributed to him a series of
offensive anti-gay statements made in 1997. While we don't expect to agree on all
issues with those with whom we collaborate on anti-jihad efforts, we do
not wish to give the impression that we endorse, agree with, or approve
of in any way the statements attributed to Mr. Mawyer. Nor do we wish to
give the impression that Geert Wilders or the Freedom Defense
Initiative approves of such statements.

The Freedom Defense Initiative, like Geert Wilders, stands for the
human rights of people of all creeds, colors, and sexual orientations
against the global jihad, which works daily to impose the discriminatory
and brutal strictures of Sharia upon free people. Sharia denies basic
rights to women, non-Muslims, and gays, and exalts its brutal and
inhumane system as divine law. In standing for human rights in this way,
we consider it of utmost importance that our message not be clouded by
other agendas, as we labor to build a broad coalition of free people who
hold a wide variety of perspectives on other issues, united against the
slavery of Islamic law.

In order, then, to avoid creating any false impressions about our
agenda and goals, or those of Geert Wilders, we have decided to cancel
the event in Los Angeles on May 1.

  • I’m disappointed that the event was canceled over this. Anyone who’s ever taken a position on anything is bound to have said something, or many things, regrettable. Kicking out anybody who’s got an uncomfortable track record could leave us alone just when we need friends the most. I know this is a complex issue (and I freely admit not knowing all the facts) but I can’t escape a feeling that this is a bad move.

  • Taking the recent comments from Charles Krauthammer, Bill Kristol, A.B. Stoddard and G.Beck into account, there’s no doubt the far right movement in the US is in effect crumbling, especially regarding the support for Mr. Geert Wilders and his points of view. It’s a relief to notice a growing number of well known right wing prominent people are looking upon the facts in a far more realistic way.
    For the benefit of both the US as well as The Netherlands and the whole of Europe as a matter of fact it’s rather comforting to see realism prevailing at last.

    I believe it was a wise decision to cancel the event based on those statements made by Mr. Mawyer in 1997. We have all, at one time or other, made comments that we later come to regret but the damage is done and we have to face up to it.
    It’s a sad fact.
    By association with Mr. Mawyer, this would provide the enemy with the ammunition they need for a counter attack and we must always stand on guard in our struggle against the forces of darkness.
