Pam Geller targeted for beheading in Boston
Terror suspect changes mind: ‘Can’t wait that long’

The terror suspect shot and killed by Boston police, Usaamah Rahim, had been planning to behead American Freedom Defense Initiative chief Pamela Geller – who recently organized the “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas – but decided instead to target law enforcement.

“I can’t wait that long,” he reportedly said, in reference to going after Geller, the FBI said in an affidavit filed in federal court, CNN reported. “[I’m going after the] boys in blue.”

The “boys in blue” was apparently a reference to police officers. Rahim, 26, was believed to be a radicalized ISIS-tied Muslim working with another suspect who was arrested, David Wright.

Geller’s response to the revelations came on CNN, during an interview with Burnett.

“They targeted me for violating Sharia blasphemy laws,” she said. “They mean to kill everyone who doesn’t do their bidding and abide by their law voluntarily.”

The interview ended on a heated note after Burnett seemed to suggest Geller enjoyed the attention she received by opposing Islam.

Burnett first told Geller the Southern Poverty Law Center labels her organization as a hate group, and her as “anti-Muslim,” in context of discussing how Geller has had to increase her security guard presence since the “Draw Muhammad” contest.
Burnett then asked: “Do you on some level relish being the target of these attacks?”

Geller reacted with disbelief.

“Who self-promotes to get killed?” she said. “Really, the Southern Poverty Law Center? Who designates them the arbiter on anything?”

Geller then decried the SPLC’s tracking of “patriots” and “veterans,” but not of radical Islamists. And she reminded how one of their members was actually involved in the targeted attack on the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins.

“Why do you use the Southern Poverty Law Center, a notorious, uber-left Communist group to slime me, to smear me? I’m the hunted one,” Geller said. “This is incredible to me.”

Burnett, for her part, said the question was a valid one.
