Reuters employee issues 'Zionist pig' death threat (to Little Green Footballs 5/29/06)

A Reuters employee has been suspended after sending a death threat to an American blogger.

The message, sent from a Reuters internet account, read: "I look forward to the day when you pigs get your throats cut."

It was sent to Charles Johnson, owner of the Little Green Footballs (LGF) weblog, a popular site which often backs Israel and highlights jihadist terrorist activities.

In the threat, the Reuters staff member, who has not been named, left his email address as "zionistpig" at hotmail.com.

Reporting the message to his readers, Johnson wrote on his website: "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."

After bringing the threat to the attention of Reuters, Johnson was told by the news organization's Global Head of Communications, Ed

Williams: "I can confirm that an employee has been suspended pending further investigation. The individual was not an employee of Reuters' news division."

In an additional twist, Johnson traced the movements of the sender of the threat, and found direct parallels between the internet locations of the sender and Inayat Bunglawala, Media Secretary of the Muslim Council of Britain.

Bunglawala, who contirbuted an editorial to the Guardian website, has attracted negative attention in the past after making anti-Semitic outbursts, and has declared that the British media was "Zionist-controlled."

In the comment section of the Guardian, underneath his own editorial, Bunglawala denied sending the threat, blaming "Zionists" instead.

"That was not me! Methinks some Zionists are up to mischief," he wrote.

The individual was not an employee of Reuters' news division.

That comment begs the question, which Reuters division was he employed by?

Pretty typical for a Reuters employee.

Reuters has a huge financial services information business that actually dwarfs the news business (with respect to profitability anyway). The news business is based in the UK, the financial side in the USA.

Three cheers to Charles Johnson! Good job - overall and in particular.

To Mr. Inayat (who is of lately hard at work not to be himself), Muslim Council of Britain, The Guardian and all those out there who keep looking for the cut-throating opportunities - warning is appreciated.

Most wannabe jihadi yo yo's don't realize that Hotmail et al embed the IP address of the SOURCE WORKSTATION into the header of the email. Recipients can easily view that IP address.

Dan Pearl's murderers couldn't resist sending Hotmail to Fox News, the NY Post, and CBS.

Busted.

I'm sure the liberals are terribly upset that one of their pet socialist agitators got caught.

After all, they're hoping the slavering Jihadis do the work that liberals refuse to do.

Williams: "I can confirm that an employee has been suspended pending further investigation. The individual was not an employee of Reuters' news division."

What, they have strangers wandering around their offices?

Or maybe it was the janitor...

It's even more confusing than that - here's what the article actually said: "Ed Williams: "I can confirm that an employee has been suspended pending further investigation. The individual was not an employee of Reuters' news division." HUH ..???

Sooooo .. "an employee" was suspended .. but he wasn't "an employee" .. that's gobblygook speak!

From the blogosphere:

" blathering titted weenie-man" alert:
Reuters Death Threat Update 3

The Reuters IP address that was used to send us a death threat has visited LGF 15 times today. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Reuters has not really suspended the person responsible (as they told me), but something odd’s going on here because the hits from this address are not random at all. All of them go either directly to the post about the death threat, or to one of the other LGF entries linked at the Guardian’s page with Inayat Bunglawala’s article. There are no visits from this IP address to any unrelated LGF pages.

The most recent hit was at 6:31:09 pm Pacific time, and it went directly to the death threat post.

For the full story: A Death Threat from Reuters (Bumped).

Hey, Bunglawala, go listen to the Rants about you at Bairn Surgery With Spoons!

Meanwhile, at 11:40 pm last night, someone used an anonymous remailer in the Netherlands (with the address nobody@dizum.com) to send the following email:

You are a blathering titted weenie-man. Your whining and mewling amuses us so. If you’re representative of what stands between the West and Islam, Islam cannot lose.

Reuters Death Threat Update 2

At the Guardian, Inayat Bunglawala responds again:   link: 360 comments  "I notice that we appear to have attracted some rather unpleasant Muslim-haters via the detestable LGF website.

Dear Mr. Bunglawala,

We are not Muslim-haters. We despise beheadings, mutilations, honor-killings and other sundry gross affronts to humanity in the name of God. It's not all that complex. Inhumanity to humankind will not be tollerated. Got it? "

Reuters Death Threat Update

Last night I requested more information about the person Reuters says they “suspended” for sending me a death threat, but so far there has been no response.

Meanwhile, the Reuters IP address 192.165.213.18 (from which I received the threat) has hit LGF 9 times today, most recently at 8:48:04 Pacific. And these aren’t random page hits—they all go to the entry about the threat. For the full story: A Death Threat from Reuters (Bumped).   link: 150 comments

There are many interesting facts about Bunglawala and death threats in the links found from a simple Google search of Bunglawala death threat

Charles gets his props from Powerline...

What struck me most about this episode is how technically skilled Charles is. The poor buffoon from Reuters who sent the email never knew what hit him. Charles was able to trace his IP address around the globe, and it quickly emerged that the miscreant was Inayat Bunglawala. [The] column by Bunglawala--an extraordinarily silly column, postulating that Christians and Muslims can get along if Christians just give up on the divinity of Christ--was apparently the source of the problem.

Amazing what one can find by doing a simple google search of the following terms;Bunglawala death threat.  Indeed, al-Reuters has employed a Radical Islamic Fundamentalist. From Daniel Pipes

Reuters four divisions: Sales & Trading, Research & Asset Management, Enterprise and Media.

We can cross "Media" off the list.
