BIOGRAPHY

Pamela Geller is the founder, editor and publisher of The Geller Report and President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA). She is the author of Fatwa: Hunted in America(foreword by Geert Wilders) (Dangerous Books), The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America (foreword by Ambassador John Bolton) (Simon & Schuster) and Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance (WND Books). She is also a regular columnist for numerous publications.
Geller’s activism on behalf of human rights has won international notice. She is a foremost defender of the freedom of speech against attempts to force the West to accept Sharia blasphemy laws, and against Sharia self-censorship by Western media outlets. Her First Amendment lawsuits filed nationwide have rolled back attempts to limit Americans’ free speech rights and limit speech to only one political perspective, and exposed attempts to make an end-run around the First Amendment by illegitimately restricting access to public fora. Her free speech event in Garland, Texas led to the capture or killing of several murderous jihadists, smoking out terror cells, leading to an increase in the threat level to BRAVO and to the consequent arrests of jihadists in several states.
Pamela Geller has been the subject of a profile on 60 Minutes, and of cover stories in the Sunday New York Times Metro section and the UK’s Independent. The Times also published an in-depth interview with her. She has made appearances on NBC Nightly News, ABC, CNN, AP, Reuters, the Sean Hannity Show, the Bill O’Reilly Show, Red Eye, Geraldo, the Mike Huckabee show, and other shows on the Fox News channel. She has been featured in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Village Voice, the Daily Mail and the Telegraph.
Geller’s articles and op-eds have been published in Time Magazine, the Guardian, Commentary Magazine, Fox News, The Washington Times, Breitbart News, The Hill, Human Events, The American Thinker, Newsmax, Pajamas Media, Israel National News, World Net Daily, FrontPage magazine, New Media Journal, and Canada Free Press, among other publications.

Moderate Morocco: Homosexuals are Trash, Says Moroccan Human Rights Minister


2

Morocco’s own minister for human rights, Mustapha Ramid, came out and said, in front of journalists, that homosexuals are “trash,” the ugly misfits of society.
He followed that by saying on his Facebook page that “homosexuality is a crime and is not acceptable within our society.”


Protesters were deported from Morocco after defending two gay men on trial.

What’s most interesting about the remarks is that Morocco is heralded by the left as a place of Muslim tolerance.
Here’s the story, thanks to Ansa:
The Moroccan minister for human rights has said in front of journalists that he feels homosexuals are ”trash” and then wrote on his Facebook page that ”homosexuality is a crime and is not acceptable within our society”. Marrakesh will on Thursday open a museum dedicated to the homosexual fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.
The ribbon of the museum was cut by Princess Lalla Salma, the princess consort of Morocco. She was present at the inauguration of the initiative alongside Madison Cox, a landscape artist and wife of Pierre Berge, a businessman who died recently and was the life companion of the fashion designer. On the sidelines of a meeting on the issue of torture a few days ago, Mustapha Ramid, a minister tasked with human rights and humanitarian issues, responded to a question from the media on when homosexuality would be decriminalized by saying that ”I do not have time for these issues. In my opinion, homosexuals are trash.” To better clarify his position, he later wrote the Facebook post. Many letters of condemnation and protest went sent by Moroccan associations, including to government chief Saad Eddine El Othmani and the king.
They were urged to dismiss the minister, who they said ”encourages homophobia” and ”makes a mockery of the Moroccan constitution”. Ramid, who was born in 1959 and who has two wives, is part of the pro-Islamist Justice and Development Party that holds a government majority and has made similar statements in the past.
In 2015, when he was justice minister, he said on a popular radio program that ”in order to avoid problems with the law, homosexuals just have to undergo a sex change”. Moroccan civil society has been working hard to abolish Article 489 of the Criminal Code, which punishes sexual acts between people of the same gender with up to three years in prison.
