"Now do I see everything through the prism of Israel? No, I don't, but I do think it's a very good guide. It's a very good guide because, like I said, in the war between the civilized man and the savage, you side with the civilized man. … If you don't lay down and die for Islamic supremacism, then you're a racist anti-Muslim Islamophobic bigot. That's what we're really talking about."

"He [Barack Obama] spent three weeks in Pakistan in his college days at Occidental in 1981 ... Back in the early 80's, there were only two reasons to travel to Pakistan. Jihad or drugs.

(He did, after all, change his name to Barack Hussein Obama from Barry Soetoro, upon his return from that trip)." - Atlas Shrugs blog post, 8/1/09

Other Important Points to Note
Her group, AFDI (American Freedom Defense Initiative) is designated by multiple civil rights groups as a “hate group.”
In 2013, her views on Islam were deemed so offensive that CPAC, which had invited her to speak for years, banned her from participating in their annual DC conference.
Geller was cited as an inspiration in the manifesto of Norwegian terrorist, Anders Behring Breivik. Geller later justified the attacks in a blog post on her website, writing that those killed were “anti-Semites,” and more Middle [sic] Eastern or mixed than pure Norwegian.”
In 2014, the US government refused a trademark for Geller’s group, Stop the Islamization of America, on the grounds that the group disparaged Muslims. Last week (January 2015), the Supreme Court refused to hear the case, which Geller’s legal team appealed.
In 2013, the UK banned Geller from entering the country for up to five years on the grounds that her public presence at anti-Muslim rallies with the EDL “was not conducive to the public good.”
Geller’s group, AFDI, is behind a campaign of metropolitan metro and bus ads that attack Islam and Muslims with phrases like “Islamic Jew Hatred: It’s In the Quran.”
