Pamela Geller is the Ann Coulter of the Counter-Jihad movement to expose the dark side of Islam usually through her Blog Atlas Shrugs. Geller has been recently elected to be the head of a transnational Counter-Jihad organization designed to unite all Counter-Jihadists put up a unified front against Leftist Multiculturalists and Muslim Apologists (most often she be read as Radical Muslim Apologists).
I am guessing the organization is a spin-off of the separate organizations internationally in which the U.S. one is called Stop Islamization of America (SIOA). The transnational version is called Stop Islamization of Nations (SION). I don’t know if anyone has made the connection or even if it was the intention, but think about this similarity: SION – Zion. I am certain Radical Islamic organizations will pick up on that right away. Anything similar to Zion will be viewed as pro-Israel. Imagine that a transnational pro-Israel organization that is not specifically made up of Jews. That is sure to send the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) – Stephen Coughlin Seminar on OIC - into apoplexy as well as the Muslim Brotherhood and their separate nation offshoots.
Any way here is the Yahoo News story that Pamela Geller Tweeted.
SION: Stop Islamization of Nations Forms International Activist Leadership Team, the SION President's Council
By PR Newswire
Aug 7, 2012
NEW YORK, Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Leaders of counter-jihad organizations from all over the world have announced the formation of the first activist leadership team uniting counter-jihadists in Europe, the U.S., Australia, India, Israel and elsewhere: the President's Council of Stop Islamization of Nations (SION).
The President's Council was formed after the extraordinary successful international counter-jihad rally in Stockholm on August 4, when the heads of the leading worldwide counter-jihad organizations held a series of workshops and planning meetings. The initial members of the President's Council are SIOE's Anders Gravers; Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll of the EDL; Debbie Robinson of the Q Society of Australia, Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller. The members of the newly formed council unanimously voted to elect Pamela Geller Council President.
Geller said in a statement: "I am honored. This is a momentous beginning to what I am confident will become a powerful force for defending freedom worldwide."
The President's Council differs from the SION Board, which includes Swiss parliamentarian Oskar Freysinger; Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media; Ashraf Rameleh of Voice of the Copts; Ali Sina, the renowned ex-Muslim author and founder of FaithFreedom.org; Wafa Sultan, the ex-Muslim human rights activist and author; the German pro-freedom activist Stefan Herre of Politically Incorrect; the Israeli author Dr. Mordechai Kedar; the Hindu human rights activist Babu Suseelan; and Anders Gravers of Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE).
This Board functions in an advisory capacity, while the President's Council is a steering committee. It functions as a mobile, proactive, reactive on-the-ground team developing and executing confidential action plans that strike at the heart of the global anti-freedom agenda.
The SION President's Council's next initiative will be the first session of the International Freedom Defense Congress, which will be held in New York on September 11, 2012. The principal focus of the Congress will be a media workshop pertaining to Islamic supremacist attempts to restrict the freedom of speech in the free world, and the smear campaigns against freedom fighters in newspapers and media institutions in the West.
The objective of this first-of-its-kind workshop is to develop media-related mechanisms to address the smear campaigns. It will also address the media's double standard regarding Islam and other religions. The Congress will discuss at length the reasons behind and the results of the Western media's offensive campaigns against freedom of speech and the truth about Islam, jihad, Islamic supremacism and Muslims.
The International Freedom Defense Congress will represent a quantum leap in media action, as it discusses, beyond rhetoric, the practical steps to address the phenomenon of the Islamic war against free speech.

SION establishes a common American/European coalition of free people determined to stand for freedom and oppose the advance of Islamic law, Sharia. Islamic law is not simply a religious system, but a political system that encompasses every aspect of life; is authoritarian, discriminatory, and repressive; and contradicts Western laws and principles in numerous particulars. SION respects Muslims as fellow human beings and rejects Islamization as a comprehensive political, religious, cultural and social system of behavior and ideology.
SION stands for:
§ The freedom of speech – as opposed to Islamic prohibitions of "blasphemy" and "slander," which are used effectively to quash honest discussion of jihad and Islamic supremacism;
§ The freedom of conscience – as opposed to the Islamic death penalty for apostasy;
§ The equality of rights of all people before the law – as opposed to Sharia's institutionalized discrimination against women and non-Muslims.
