Geller Vs. Simmons, Will the Huffington Post Publish?

As I mentioned on Tuesday, the Huffington Post fired both barrels at Pamela Geller's pro-Israel/anti-Jihad advertisements in the New York subway system. One of the articles that they published by Russell Simmons and Rabbi Marc Schneier, was responded to be Geller on the blog. As usual, her reaction is somewhat shrill:
"Fine. Are these smug, self-righteous, self-important leftist dhimmis able to shatter their own complacency? Do they have the integrity to look at the jihads raging around the world, the 19,660 jihad attacks since 9/11, the brutalization of Christians in Pakistan, Egypt, Iraq, Indonesia, and elsewhere, the persecution of Hindus in Pakistan and Bangladesh, the plight of the Bahais in Iran, and all the other jihads against unbelievers around the world? Can they look honestly at the honor killings, child marriages, clitorectomies, and all the other mistreatment of women that is sanctioned in Islam? Can they look at these things squarely really come away thinking that I am the problem?"
But here's the thing. Remember when Andrea Stone told us that the Huffington Post will publish anything that is submitted to them, lest they violate freedom of speech?  Doesn't seem quite right that they would publish an attack on Ms. Geller's ads and yet not let her defend herself, would they?

Write the Huffington Post here and ask them to publish Geller's response to Simmons' blog post. Let us know what they have to say.
