Pamela Geller, also known as Pamela Oshry, (born 1958 or 1959 on Long Island, New York) is an anti-Islamic American blogger, political activist, and co-founder of Stop Islamization of America. She has been cited as one of the most visible opponents of the Park51 community center and mosque in Lower Manhattan.
Her weblog, "Atlas Shrugs", is named in homage to Ayn Rand's book Atlas Shrugged, as she supports Objectivist philosophy. The blog has been criticized by Media Matters for America called "right-wing" by The Jewish Week and "extreme" by The Guardian.
Mark Potok, a spokesman for the Southern Poverty Law Center, has described Geller's rhetoric as "over the line" and "hate speech".
Pamela Geller has lent her support to a number of other political causes. She has been a strong defender of former Serbian president Slobodan Milošević, and has denied the existence of Serbian concentration camps in the 1990s. She has also claimed that black South Africans are launching a "genocide" against whites and expressed support for the far right English Defence League.
Eric Boehlert, a senior fellow at Media Matters for America said that "Pamela Geller been instrumental, she has whipped up hatred in the right-wing blogosphere and now that's spilled out into the wider community.
Controversial postings on "Atlas Shrugs" have included a number of false claims, including that Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan (who is Jewish) supports Nazi ideology (accompanied by a fake picture of her in a Nazi uniform), a video suggesting that Muslims have sex with goats, a doctored photo showing President Obama urinating on an American flag and false claims that Obama's mother was involved in pornography and that Obama "was involved with a crack whore in his youth". Geller has also used her site to accuse President Obama of anti-Semitism and doing the bidding of "Islamic overlords," while posting an essay suggesting, without any evidence, that the President is the "love child" of Malcolm X. During an RT Television News interview, reporter Lauren Lister repeatedly questioned Geller's claim that she is not anti-Muslim, at one point calling attention to Geller's having posted a drawing of Muhammad on her blog with the face of a pig superimposed over his own. Geller responded by saying "I don't know where it is in America that you can't make jokes or make fun."

The slaying of the 27-year-old salesman remains unsolved. But investigators say the search yielded evidence of an alleged million-dollar fraud scheme at the Lawrence, N.Y. Universal Auto World dealership, which closed in June 2007.
According to a civil forfeiture lawsuit filed by Nassau County's district attorney, Universal Auto World employees paid straw purchasers with good credit to sign loan documents for more than $1.3 million worth of luxury vehicles. Those vehicles, the New York Post reported, included Maseratis, Aston Martins and other $100,000-plus models. The employees sold or transferred the cars to buyers who did not want their names to appear on the loan papers, investigators allege.
