AFDI/SIOA Calls on Hyatt Hotels to Apologize, Institute Sensitivity Training After Caving Into Islamic Supremacist Pressure

NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A prominent national human rights and advocacy organization is calling on the Hyatt Hotel Place in Sugar Land, Texas to apologize and hold sensitivity training sessions after caving in to pressure from Leftists and Islamic supremacists and canceling an event featuring prominent human rights activist Pamela Geller.

Geller is the executive director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and its Stop Islamization of America (SIOA). She had been scheduled to speak at the Hyatt Place on October 18, but Hyatt officials canceled the event after receiving threats of protests. The Sugar Land Democrats Club announced a protest of the event, issuing a press release from its leaders, Deron Patterson and S. Qaisar Imam.

Said Geller in a statement: "Another venue was found and the event went on as planned, but the Hyatt cancellation raised important issues regarding the freedom of speech and the truth about Islamic supremacism and terrorism."

The Hyatt did issue a qualified apology, but not for allowing the freedom of speech to be subverted by Islamic supremacist entities bent on covering up the truth about the Islamic jihad terror threat. Rather, it apologized only for "not working hard enough with the group to address concerns about potential business disruptions the way we should have to find a resolution."

The Hyatt's cancellation of the Geller event was all the more egregious in light of the Hyatt corporation's hosting of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and of the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).

AFDI/SIOA accordingly calls upon the Hyatt to apologize for its capitulation to the enemies of freedom, and to hold sensitivity training sessions for all its employees to teach them the value of the freedom of speech and the truth about the jihad threat facing the U.S. and the West.

AFDI/SIOA offers diversity and sensitivity training to corporations and government agencies at the local, state and national levels.

AFDI/SIOA's diversity training is designed to help these entities understand the jihad threat in all its different manifestations, including Islamic supremacist cultural initiatives to assert Islamic law and practice in the American workplace. It helps them protect their business practices in the face of demands for special accommodation for Muslim employees.

AFDI/SIOA is one of America's foremost organizations defending human rights, religious liberty, and the freedom of speech against Islamic supremacist intimidation and attempts to bring elements of Sharia to the United States.
