Pamela Geller, the founder of The Geller Report, president of the AFDI and SIOA, is found guilty for deliberately publishing fake news.
Lions Ground discovered on Gellerreport.com the fake news with the headline “Italy: Devout Muslim smashes statue”. A publication with regard to a Facebook video in which reality is deliberately taken out of context.
WATCH: very dramatic video !!! Islamic fanatic breaking statue
Posted by Jewish Voice on Sunday, January 14, 2018
Miss Geller did not substantively provided information about the video, instead adds anti-Islam related stories irrelevant to the original headline.
“WATCH: very dramatic video. Devout Muslim smashes statue in Italy. Wake up call to the Italian authority,” says Pamela Geller.
She continues her story how Muslims destroy religious icons and statues of non-Muslims.
“There is a fatwa (a legal ruling under Islam) calling for the destruction of religious icons, statues, etc. of non-Muslims,” Geller stated.
Italy: Devout Muslim Smashes Statue
Her claim that it occured in Italy is false. The so-called statue in the video is about the “Ain el-Fouara” fountain in Sétif, Algeria.
The attack on the fountain by a strict Islamist —not a terrorist— happened on Monday, December 18, 2017. It is not the first time that the artwork is a victim of vandalism. As far as known, two attacks occurred on April 22, 1997, and February 28, 2006, by strict Muslims who are triggered by the naked girl statue.
The Ain el-Fouara fountain is a symbolic monument in the town, where it is very popular among the locals. The religion of Algeria is Islam.
It is not the first time that fake publications of the video appear on the internet. It has previously been claimed that the video has been recorded in Syria.
Miss Geller, author of Fatwa: Hunted in America(foreword by Geert Wilders) and other books is a fan of the Dutch political leader of PVV Geert Wilders.

Geert Wilders was a supporter of the banned extreme right-wing politician Jan Maat. “As long as Jan, my buddy, has a good card,” a retweet related to a research for refugee crisis in January 2016. It is very rare because Geert Wilders is part Indonesian. In indonesia, over 90% of the population is Islam.
Geller refuses to comply and did not corrected her publication. The headline and content of her publication complimenst her motive, which is fear mongering.
