Confirming yet again that terrorism works, and that all too many Americans no longer have the courage of their forefathers to defend liberty at whatever cost. Islamic supremacists threatened the hotel over our conference, and the hotel immediately gave in to their violent intimidation. “Conference on Islam canceled as hotel fears head-bashing: Corporate exec reacted to warning ‘protests could erupt into violence,'” by Art Moore for WorldNetDaily, October 24:
For the second time in less than a week, a major U.S. hotel has canceled an agreement to host an event on radical Islam’s threat to America’s freedoms, due to threatening messages to management.
The Preserving Freedom Conference, scheduled for Nov. 11 at the top-rated Hutton Hotel in Nashville, Tenn., features Robert Spencer, author of 10 books about Islam and director of Jihad Watch, and Pamela Geller, a WND columnist, editor of the blog Atlas Shrugs and author of the book “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.” WND is a co-sponsor of the conference.
Steve Eckley, senior vice president of hotels for Amerimar Enterprises in Denver – the Hutton Hotel’s managing corporation, told WND it was his decision to cancel the event.
Eckley said he “wasn’t exactly sure what the content of the program was,” but he explained that he canceled it because of the threat of physical harm to people at the hotel.
“They were veiled threats that there were going to be protests that could easily erupt into violence,” he told WND in a telephone interview.
Sessions planned for the conference include “The European Experience” with Shariah, “Religious Persecution Under Shariah,” “The Dehumanization and Diminishment of Women in the West Under Shariah,” “The Muslim Brotherhood In America” and “Fighting Islamist Propaganda in the Media.”
Spencer and Geller are co-founders of the activist group Stop Islamization of America, which helped lead opposition to the so-called Ground Zero mosque in New York City.
As WND reported last week, the Hyatt Place Hotel in Sugar Land, Texas, near Houston, canceled a tea party event featuring Geller after complaints reportedly by the [Hamas-linked] Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR. The D.C.-based Islamic group has sued the co-author of a WND Books expose, “Muslim Mafia,” which documents CAIR’s founding as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent of terrorist groups such as al-Qaida and Hamas….
