In an exclusive statement to WND, Pamela Geller has a message for Americans about the latest threat against her by the terror group ISIS.
“ISIS is here. The war is here,” warned Geller. “And they aren’t just coming for me. They are coming for anyone who does not submit.”
Despite the changes to her daily life because of pending threats and attempts on her life, Geller says she takes comfort in the determination and grit of everyday Americans who join her in this fight. She said she “stands with and for” the millions of people like herself who “will not relinquish our inalienable rights to devout savages.”
As WND reported, Geller’s home address was tweeted out this week by an ISIS account believed to be linked to an Islamic State jihadist kingpin in Britain. The account has since been suspended.
The tweet that drew so much attention said “#GoForth.” It then revealed Geller’s New York City address very specifically, including her apartment number. The threat came on the heels of the arrest of a third man linked to the plot to behead Geller.
Geller, along with her group the American Freedom Defense Initiative, hosted a “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas. As WND reported, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi of Phoenix responded to a call to “avenge the prophet” and traveled to Garland, where they were shot and killed by a security guard after opening fire in an apparent attempt to get into the building. The guard was wounded in the attack.
Islamic radicals have since called for Geller’s head, and vow to kill anyone who “blasphemes” Muhammad.
On Monday, WND reported Geller’s monthly security bill is $30,000.
