Leave Amy Alone

FEARS grew last night that hate-filled Islamic extremists are drawing up a “hit list” of Britain’s leading Jews — bringing the Middle East conflict terrifyingly close to home.

TV’s The Apprentice boss Sir Alan Sugar and Amy Winehouse record producer Mark Ronson are among prominent names discussed on [] a fanatics’ website.

That's from the U.K. Sun. On the other hand, Ummah strikes back in a news release:

The quotes that the article carries are from a thread on Ummah Forums entitled, "Compile a list of those who support Israel". In the very first post, which sets out the theme and purpose of the thread, the user "Saladin1970" encourages other members to aid in compiling a list of British people who support Israel. He writes, "It would bebeneficial to start compiling a list so that we can write polite letters reminding them of the injustices of Israel and to stop supporting Israel." Later in the thread, the user "Abuislam" asks if any names and addresses have been posted up yet in . Further along the discussion still, the original user suggests that rather than contacting those listed directly, it may be a better idea to contact Muslim organizations and individuals involved with them and encourage them to boycott said individuals.

Clearly, most people will realize that this thread is about a peaceful form of campaigning against the state of Israel by writing "polite"letters to well-known and wealthy supporters of the state asking them to withdraw that support and encouraging Muslims not to do business work with them until they do.

And they link to the original thread which, in its current state at least, seems pretty mild stuff, calling at its most furious for demonstrations outside of businesses sympathetic to the Israeli cause, which may be ill considered or not but was legal the last time I looked.

Also, an interesting turn at the end:

This is the Thread which triggered the Headline in The Sun News Paper Today

I can confirm that the User "AbuIslam" who is posing as a Muslim on this forum is in fact a freelance Journalist by the name of "Richard Tims" who registered on this forum to twist what the original Intent of this thread was for and to make Muslims look bad.

Abuislam Deliberated added comments on this thread which made is as if this thread was intended to cause harm to names that were mentioned

This has been confirmed from his IP address and Email addresses has he used on this forum and previous usernames

Whatever, leave Amy out of this stuff. She's got enough problems with her fella'.

PS. Interesting how "Amy Winehouse record producer Mark Ronson" becomes Amy herself in all subsequent news stories. The media must die. It stands in the way of truth.

No kidding the media has to die. I came to that conclusion when I read this over at Macleans in which Ken Whyte congratulates "Ezra Levant, Jay Currie, Kathy Shaidle, among others." A liar, a cretin and a nutcase. Yee haw!

Too bad George Orwell isn't around anymore to refine his concept of Orwellianism. I'm sure he'd have a lot to say about how willing people are to accept falsehoods; how they in fact prefer them to something resembling the truth, out of some lunatic assumption that whoever has a response first is the one who is correct.
