Friday, May 26, 2006 A Death Threat from Reuters (Bumped) See below for important updates...
Early yesterday morning at about 3:00 am on the West Coast, someone in Sweden Britain connected to the Internet and browsed over to this article at the Guardian by Inayat Bunglawala, media secretary of the Muslim Council of Britain: This code could open doors.
Bunglawalas piece (about the Da Vinci Code) is in the section of the Guardian site where readers can comment, and someone posted a link to LGF as a rebuttal to Bunglawala. Our Swedish British visitor clicked that link, leading him/her/it to this post: Swedish Muslims Demand Sharia.
At 3:23 am, this creature used our contact form to send the following email with the obviously phony Hotmail address firstname.lastname@example.org and the subject line, You bunch of wankers.
I look forward to the day when you pigs get your throats cut....
Well, isnt that tolerant.
But this particular death threat is a bit different from the run of the mill hate mail we get around here, because an IP lookup on the sender reveals that he/she/it was using an account at none other than Reuters News: RIPE Whois Database: 22.214.171.124. (Please note: the name and address below are those of Reuters technical contact, not the name of the freak responsible for our hate mail. Please do not send him email.)

Anyone who resists jihad is a racist by definition. /sarcasm
muslims aren't a race; therefore the moron's ploy is false. Neither are mexicans a race, so all their BS about racism is just crap.
So much stupidity and so little time to refute the islamofascists and socialists.
BTW, I hate islam. I guess that makes me racist. So be it. I hate islam because I have read its primary sources and know what the koran says. I hate evil, islam is evil, therefore I hate it.
Yeah, well, it looks like a set-up and the person has been "caught", kind of, sort of...
IMHO, probably nothing will ever be done to the perp.
Minor point, please substitute "certainly" for "probably."
Do you really need to say anymore?
It's a scam, someone is trying to make LGF look really bad. I think they went to the Al Sharpton school of PR, although, I don't know if even Al would stoop this far.
Al-Reuters that is.
I love the following comment that someone made to this story in response:
"This is crazy charles. Could you imagine this same situation if death threats were being sent to CAIR from lets say "The Weekley Standard"."
Thanks Cindy, really quite fascinating. Do you think the MSM will touch this with a ten-foot pole?
Here's what the little weasel said re the Da Vinci Code (have your barf bag handy). Oh, and check out his picture, just priceless.
Sounds like the perp would like to get some riots going, maybe, about LFG's daring to hate Muslims. Well, count me in on the LGF Brigade.
Thanks for the info, lol, but please don't shoot the messenger. Tell LGF and the police.
"This code could open doors
At the heart of Dan Brown's book is a truth to unite Christians and Muslims."
The Da Vinci code is an outright lie and is pure fiction, to put it as kindly as I can.
that makes that's little snippet I quoted above a statement that is a lie, too.
Thanks for the ping khnyny.
Media miscues seem bulging with left-wing bias (The never ending media propaganda on behalf of the DNC)
The Never Ending DNC Media Propaganda Machine (Exposing DNC media propaganda where it hides)
ABC's of Media Bias (Anti-American Radical Left Control of Corrupt Media)
Let's not forget the WELL-DOCUMENTED, VERIFIABLE PLAN Democrats published, BEFORE the 2004 Elections, to WORK WITH THE MEDIA TO LIE TO THE PUBLIC AND ENGAGE IN WIDESPREAD MANIPULATION AND PROPAGANDA TO ATTACK AMERICA AND UNDERMINE BUSH!
Here is the original version of the story, in the WAYBACKMACHINE even though it has LONG been removed from the web site!
I'm surprised it didn't come from the New York Times or ABC or cBS or NBC, or even the Washington Post! Reuters sucks just like the AP, and they are one and the same when it comes to trying to harm the internet folks, or even scare them. What they havn't learned though, is we don't cut and run like they do, we discuss, we check the facts, then we decide on our own. They need us a hell of a lot more than we need them, and they are scared silly.
[UPDATE, 11:30am EDT: Leslie Cauleys Democratic campaign contributions (Richard Gephardt Presidential Campaign) seem not to be her only tie to liberal politics. Before Cauley joined USA Today, she teamed up with former AT&T and Global Crossing executive Leo Hindery to write a book on business deals, Biggest Game of All. But Hindery is not just a businessman hes listed as a major donor to Democratic candidates and the Democratic Party, and was even mentioned by The Hill newspaper as a possible DNC chairman in late 2004.]
