So it was no surprise to hear she organised a ‘Draw Muhammad’ event in Garland, Texas last week.

The sole aim of this ‘cartoon competition’, with a prize of $10,000 to the winner, was to mock the Prophet Muhammad, and provoke Muslims.

Her attempts to infer this was a direct response to the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris are as pathetic as they are disingenuous.

Charlie Hebdo is a satirical magazine which lampoons all religions and public figures. It doesn’t have any specific issue with Muhammad or Islam. I’m a Catholic and they’ve been equally offensive to my faith and the Pope.

Nor is their vitriol aimed at decent, law-abiding Muslims. It’s aimed at those who abuse the true meaning of Islam and Muhammad’s teachings to commit acts of atrocious violence – most often against fellow Muslims.

Ms Geller, by contrast, doesn’t go after anyone but Muslims.

Not from a perspective of ridicule through humour, but overt, transparent hatred.

I despise everything about her, and everything she stands for.

To have an opinion that I personally find loathsome.

To say stuff so vile that makes my skin crawl.

To give disgusting interviews that make me want to punch my TV.
