The lizard king Charles Johnson has sunk his teeth into another
typewriter online spat and just won't let go: this time it's all about an anonymous email he received a week ago from someone with the email address 'firstname.lastname@example.org', who, according to Johnson, threatened to kill him. (let's accept for a moment that it was a death threat, rather than a death wish, as some commentators have argued)
To cut to the chase (and spare you all the tedious details), Charlie all but accuses Inayat Bunglawala, press officer of the Muslim Council of Britain, of sending the death threat. His case is based on some tenuous circumstantial evidence. What is more, CJ suspects that Bunglawala works for his arch enemy, al-Reuters. Finally, Johnson has been keeping his readers updated about just how many times a particular Reuters IP address has accessed his website, as if this is not just evidence of guilt but a further heinous crime on the part of the evil anti-semitic death threatener.
What is surprising about this little episode isn't the fact that Charles is excited about having found out that al-Reuters have an 'Islamofascist' operative working for them. No, it's the laughable effort that Charles 'New Media' Johnson has made to follow up his suspicions about Bunglawala.
Any half decent reporter would have taken no more than a few minutes to find out that a) Bunglawala IS a Reuters staff member but b) not part of its editorial staff. In fact, Bunglawala works for Reuters's technical department. I'll leave it to our lizard readers to figure out whether that is proof of CJ's theory that the 'death threat' came from Bunglawala. Just one little caveat: our sources close to Mr B say he appears 'relaxed' and not like a man who has just been sacked...
Of course, from our point of view the real story here is why Charles is making such a fuss over a few nasty words directed at him. After all, he himself is no stranger to death threats: the loyal lizard minions at Charlie's feet issue them fast and freely, no holds barred. Like any good mafia boss, Charles gets his readers to do the dirty work for him, but that doesn't mean the responsibility for these treasures doesn't ultimately lie with him:

Listen, dipshit, I'm going to explain this once and once only. We do not target civilians. With the Bad Guys (cowards that they are) hiding themselves among civilians, it's damn near impossible to kill them without some civilians also buying the farm. It's unfortunate, but it's unavoidable in some circumstances, so we try to minimize it as much as we can. Islamofascists, on the other hand, have no qualms with intentionally targeting civilians. That's what makes them terrorists. Now kindly fuck off and die before I reach through my monitor, rip off your head, and piss on your dead skull.

I'd get lost if I were you. These guy are good. But remember: you can run but you can't hide.

I hope that poisnous [sic] witch gets gang raped by her pals one fine day, soon. [there's more of those here]
And then there's the little matter of the 'Arafat Poll', in which the lizard minions voted overwhelmingly in favor of having the former head of the PLO killed. Yes, Charles, your readers did the voting, but you put the option to 'kill him' on the ballot.
Perhaps someone could enlighten us: how come it's haram for people to send nasty emails wishing for Charles Johnson's sudden demise, but halal for LGFers to express the selfsame murder fantasies about everyone else?
P.S: If anybody would like to send us any more examples of Charles Johnson's proxy death threats, feel free.
UPDATE: Nuclear Cop points out in our comments section how Inayat Bunglawala doesn't half get around. Who knows what kind of mischief this man is capable of......
Speaking of proxies, the ip address almost certainly is one.
You're failing to take into account the danger of this issue. Inayat has left his sinister fingerprints all over the internet:
. advising on the size of cricket balls - no doubt for jihadi training purposes.
. He's been organising (under a pseudonym) to european girls at seaside resorts, probably to force them into marriages with jihadis who will then infiltrate europe.
. He's been soliciting Indians to work in Europe for a branch of Reuters that deals in mututal funds.
. He's been posing as "TerryM" and discussing favorite jazz releases. HE DOES NOT LIST CHARLES AS ONE OF HIS FAVORITE JAZZ MUSICIANS!!!!!
. He uses the same IP address in Bangalore to praise an Indian film called "Deadly Soma". Can the link to death threats to Charles be any more clear?
. He then uses the same IP address in Geneva to praise an investment analysis program.
. He discusses Brazillian currency fluctuations with respect to the real estate market there. Perhaps this is the planned base for the intended knife assault on Charles? Good thing Bush is deploying the National Guard to the southern border!
. Turns up in New York asking for a quote to move to Paris! Say no more!
. Most frightening of all, however, he's been vandalising wikipedia's page on George W. Bush!
The shocking reality is that the IP address is apparently used by employees of Reuters and their subsidiaries all around the world, a total of 15,000 staff.
