‘Safeties off!’ Social media buzzes as jihadist posts Pamela Geller’s home address on Twitter

A suspected British Islamic State leader tweeted anti-jihad activist Pamela Geller’s home address, sounding a battle cry to would-be assassins to kill her.

#GoForth,” the tweet said in listing Geller’s complete New York City address, posting from a now-suspended Twitter account believed to belong to Junaid Hussain, who goes by Abu Hussain al-Britani online, Newsmax reported.

The tweet came just hours after Nicholas Rovinski, 24, of Rhode Island, was arrested in connection with a plot to kill Geller and Boston police officers.

The plot was reportedly masterminded by Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, whom authorities shot and killed on June 2 after he came at them wielding a knife, Newsmax reported.

Rahim’s nephew, David Wright, was arrested in June in connection with the plot and was charged Friday with conspiracy to provide support to the Islamic State, according to Newsmax.

Geller was targeted because her group, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, sponsored the “Draw Muhammad” contest last month that was attacked by two jihadis who were killed in a shoot-out with police.

News of the jihadist move had social media buzzing with rage.
