Pam Geller blames the text of the Qur'an and the Prophet Muhammad and Islam for the terrorist attacks on 9/11.
Huckabee tries to sound more reasonable as he inserts his comment that the terrorists were following a perversion of the Qur'an and Islam.
She repeats her talking points: Ground Zero is Hallowed Ground, building a Mosque there would be an insult, a slap in the face to the 9/11 families and to America- She says CAIR and Muslim Americans want to build the Mosque as a form of Islamic Triumphalism over America, she then claims that Christian Americans are being silenced and told not to upset Muslims , she adds that Saudi Arabia does not allow churches within its borders- all of these talking points and more have been picked up and tossed out into the public airwaves by others such as Newt Gingrich, GOP, Tea Party etc.

For instance Pam says Americans are outraged by the idea of a "Ground Zero Mosque" yet up until recently most Americans were unaware or did not care if Muslim Americans built a community center called The Cordoba Houe- It is because of the propaganda and anti-Muslim bigotry which she and her Professional Islamophobic friends are spreading which is stirring up public sentiments which have already led to protests against other Mosques in America, and threats, beatings, and murder of Muslim Americans and now Mosques in America are being targeted by racist hooligans egged on by Professional Agitators such as Pamela Geller and Fox News etc.

All in all it gives us a better understanding of the extremes to which the Professional Islamophobes and anti-Muslim activists in Britain, Europe or the USA are willing to go.
Though of course if violence occurs they'll claim they had nothing to do with it.
So professional Agitators such as Pam Geller, Robert Spencer, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, Newt Gingrich, Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck , Daniel Pipes, David Horowitz, the GOP/Republican Party, Tea Party leaders , the religious Right and Christian Zionists can spread their vile propaganda and lies about Islam even though they often go over the line and their speech becomes Hate Speech which encourages others to feel that it is legitimate for them to commit Hate Crimes.
Even though they are the ones demonizing all Muslims and immigrants and any who dare defend them ie human rights activists including the ACLU, Human Rights Watch, Southern Poverty Law Center, Amnesty International or the Red Cross and Red Crescent and liberals, leftist and progressives and those Christians who believe in Social Justice, tolerance, pluralism, multiculturalism -

So if Mosques in America are attacked they take no responsibility but rather blame the Obama administration and progressives for not doing enough to monitor the activities of all Muslims in America. These Islamophobes want the Qur'an deemed a dangerous book and in their twisted minds as being equivalent to Hitler's Mein Kampf.

They also want Islam designated as a violent dangerous Cult or as simply a violent terrorists organization. Under such draconian measures any Muslim who does not renounce the Qur'an and the Prophet Muhammad is guilty of being UnAmerican and involved in acts of sedition. Is this the path down which they want to go???

And here's a report on BBC about connections between BNP British National Party & EDL. Journalist goes undercover to investigate the real nature of EDL & Combat 18 becomes apparent along with their connections with the BNP & SIOE.

More on the Thuggish British Bigots Praised by U.S. Anti-Mosque Organizers Joshua Holland, Sept. 3, 2010

Last week, I noted that several of the most prominent organizers of the ugly opposition to the Park 51 project had praised the equally ugly English Defence League (EDL), a racist far-right group in the UK that has been threatening violence for the past year. In the comments, some bigots with British accents insisted that I had it all wrong. These weren’t thuggish football hooligans who hate Muslims and other minorities — they’re salt-of-the-earth British patriots and they’re being misunderstood.

The Guardian has much more on the EDL. Judge for yourself —

MPs said the group’s decision to target some of the UK’s most prominent Muslim communities was a blatant attempt to provoke mayhem and disorder. “This group has no positive agenda,” said the Bradford South MP, Gerry Sutcliffe. “It is an agenda of hate that is designed to divide people and communities. We support legitimate protest but this is not legitimate, it is designed to stir up trouble. The people of Bradford will want no part of it.”

The English Defence League, which started in Luton last year, has become the most significant far-right street movement in the UK since the National Front in the 1970s. A Guardian investigation has identified a number of known rightwing extremists who are taking an interest in the movement – from convicted football hooligans to members of violent rightwing splinter groups.

Undercover Guardian investigation reveals plan by English Defence League to hit racially sensitive areas in attempt to provoke disorder over summer.

EDL includes various fascist groups with many names such as MarchForEngland, SIOE (Stop Islamization of Europe), CASUAL UNITED,COMBAT 18, National front etc and all going under the BNP
They are racist groups anti Muslim black Asian basically non white people in England.

UKfightback | October 12, 2009

Report about the English Defence League on Newsnight, showing the EDL dressed in illegal paramilitary uniforms, and showing EDL Harrow organiser Joel Titus (better luck next time mate), but failing to mention the EDL's criminal and BNP links, and failing to mention EDL supporters repeatedly making Nazi salutes.

Newsnight shows the EDL Nazi flag burning stunt, but completely failed to mention why the EDL burned a Nazi flag, which was because EDL supporters had been photographed giving Nazi salutes in Birmingham and Harrow. After these photos had appeared in the newspapers, the EDL begged their supporters not to screw up again, after which EDL supporters made MORE Nazi salutes in Manchester.

On the plus side the Newsnight report did show pseudonymous EDL leader "Tommy Robinson" leading from rear and pushing teenagers into the breech (where EDL leaders havn't got the courage to go themselves), and showed Matthew Goodwin confirming the EDL only have 300 to 500 members.
