American Anti-Muslim Organization Goes Global

Update: Stop Islamiza­tion of Nations (SION) will hold a “Global Counter Jihad Rally” in Stock­holm, Swe­den in early August. This will mark the first time SION and its U.S. and trans-Atlantic sup­port­ers will gather for a pub­lic event.
The lat­est out­growth of the trans-Atlantic coop­er­a­tion between anti-Muslim activists was announced on Jan­u­ary 17 by Pamela Geller, head of Stop Islamiza­tion of Amer­i­can (SIOA). Geller announced on her blog that SIOA, an orga­ni­za­tion that pro­motes a con­spir­a­to­r­ial anti-Muslim agenda under the guise of fight­ing rad­i­cal Islam, is join­ing forces with its sis­ter orga­ni­za­tion in Den­mark, Stop Islami­sa­tion of Europe (SIOE), whose cam­paigns against Islam in Europe have influ­enced Geller’s cam­paigns in the U.S.

The new orga­ni­za­tion, called Stop Islamiza­tion of Nations (SION), pur­ports to “stand for free­dom and oppose the advance of Islamic law, Sharia,” and says it will offer “diver­sity and sen­si­tiv­ity train­ing to cor­po­ra­tions and gov­ern­ment agencies…to help these enti­ties under­stand the jihad threat.” Geller and her long­time asso­ciate Robert Spencer will assume lead­er­ship of this orga­ni­za­tion, which will likely serve as another plat­form to dis­sem­i­nate SIOA/SIOE’s con­spir­a­to­r­ial agenda.
