Summary of International Freedom Defense Congress

A conference titled "International Freedom Defense Congress," sponsored by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer's organization "Stop Islamization of Nations" (SION), was appropriately scheduled in NYC for the 11th anniversary of 9/11. It also coincidentally took place while Islamic savages in Egypt were storming the U.S. Embassy and Libyan murderers were killing American diplomats over the very issue Geller, Spencer, and others were gathered to discuss: freedom of speech.

SION believes "that the workshop is of particular importance as it is the first ever to address the implications of Resolution 16/18 of the United Nations Human Rights Council, the stated goal of which is to 'combat intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization of, discrimination, incitement to violence, and violence against persons based on religion or belief,' but which is actually designed to restrict truthful speech about Islamic supremacism and jihad, so as to render the West mute and defenseless before the advancing threat of jihad and Sharia."

In light of the repeated demonstrations of vicious hatred directed at Americans over criticism of Islam and the Prophet Mohammed, this time in an internet film, combined with the U.S. State Department's initial appeasing response to these riots, it is quite fitting for Americans to be addressing the pressing issue of how individual freedoms and rights in a democratic society are being suppressed. This conference successfully brought together about 200 global "soldiers" who are battling the Islamic jihad movement against freedom that is widening its powerful grip across Europe, Australia, India, and the United States...not to mention the Middle East.

Guest speakers from around the world came to share their firsthand experiences in confronting and combating attacks on their freedom of speech by the intolerance of Islamic propagandists and their organizations. Ms. Geller passionately spoke to the audience about the "war to control words" going on in the name of Islam...and the Muslims are winning in a stealth jihad that is seducing many in the political arena and media. All she had to do was point out the many security guards surrounding the room and entrance area...along with the high cost of paying for this necessary protection.
