Eight examples of the ‘uncivilized savages’ Pamela Geller is talking about

A virulently Islamophobic advertisement campaign referring to Muslims as “savage” went live this week in ten New York City subway stations. The advertisements, created and funded by Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative, read, “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.”

These are the ‘uncivilized savages’ Geller is talking about.

The eight people profiled: A teen whose project was among two chosen to be carried out live by astronauts aboard the International Space Station, Egyptians who acted as human shields for Coptic Christians to protect them throughout the country during Christmas, A Pakistani student researcher and NYPD cadet who perished as a first responder on 9/11, three 14-year-old Palestinian refugees who are inventing for the blind, an anti-violence and street crime activist who has braved countless near-death experiences in disadvantaged neighborhoods, The Einstein of structural engineering whose innovations have driven the designs of most skyscrapers since the 1960s, a cabdriver and his daughter who are battling xenophobia to build strong communities and promote equal rights for Muslims in America, and an international music icon from Malaysia.
