We are in very good company

The Kitty Kounters have received their very first death threat:

Praise be to Allah who created the creation for his worship and commanded them to be just and permitted the wronged one to retaliate against the oppressor in kind. To proceed:

Peace be upon he who follows the guidance: With a sword of his vengeance we will strike down any who insult the great prophet. Infadels will be flung from their keyboards as the great martyr themselves, may Allah have mercy on them, at your datacentres. When your blades are in flames and your internets are no more we will descend upon you like a great plague and behead those who have brought this great injustice upon us.

And Allah is our Guardian and Helper, while you have no Guardian or Helper. All peace be upon he who follows the Guidance.

What do you think? Real? Or someone out there doing a piss take?

Nick/Ian, want to speak to the UK coppers about this? Threatening to strike at the neck is no laughing matter.

Threatening to kill us because we don’t accept we are bound by the injunctions of the Shariah is just that teensy little bit contrary to everything I have a shred of respect for.

Still, we are in very good company.

    “When your blades are in flames and your internets are no more” yes, thats a pisstake, unless the brotherhood have taken to visiting /b

  2. CountingCats says:

    Yeah, I considered that bit; thing is though, just because someone is a flaming bigot doesn’t mean that they don’t understand the technology. The rest of the post sounds valid.

    Still, piss take or not, a threat to kill is a threat to kill.

    Our not using blades is somewhat secondary.

  3. Congrats! Wear it as a badge of pride :-D

  4. I agree with Ryan, /b/ has been up to its tricks again.
    I wish my blog would get death threats =(

    I even went through the trouble of drawing mo…

    Yes I rather thought so Ryan, but just in case I am going to take the illiterate piece of doped up shit, down line for line…

    who created the creation for his worship and commanded them to be just and permitted the wronged one to retaliate against the oppressor in kind.

    So the Universe is Allahs ego trip is it? Got a bit lonely in the infinate all on his lonesome, needed a bit of worship did he? I assume it is a he.

    And you are permitted to retaliate in kind are you?
    Fine. If you can come up with as good a cartoon as Ian did, we will be all eyes and praise.

    Peace be upon he who follows the guidance: With a sword of his vengeance we will strike down any who insult the great prophet.

    Ah so these are guidlines are they? How very NuLab and European Union, how Health and Safety even!
    Allah is getting soft in his old age isn’t he?!! Surely the One who can stop the Sun in its path can do better than that?

    Infadels will be flung from their keyboards as the great martyr themselves, may Allah have mercy on them, at your datacentres.

    Huh?
    You are going to blow yourself up down at my ISP ?? Dont forget it appears to be yours as well pal.

    When your blades are in flames and your internets are no more we will descend upon you like a great plague and behead those who have brought this great injustice upon us.

    Oh do give it a rest! You have already descended upon us, we are up to our armpits in uneconomic sacks of Brown Burkas already scarfing up the Social Securtity. I fell over and hurt my back a couple of weeks ago, and frankly I am in such pain still, beheading me would be doing me a favour!

    And Allah is our Guardian and Helper, while you have no Guardian or Helper. All peace be upon he who follows the Guidance.

    No he isn’t, he is a fictional violent sociopathic mysogonistic sack of shit that weak brained folk look to for guidance instead of thinking for themselves. And nobody reads the Guardian round here anyway.

    So in conclusion, you pathetic little troll, for that is what you are, if you come for one, you come for all, for we are all Spartacus round here.
    And you caught me in one of my good moods too. If you ever turn up round here again, I will give you such a verbal kicking that no Gods, real or pretend will save you.

    Two aspects to this:

    1) Yep, a death threat is a death threat. Just as the FBI take great interest in an Alabama school teacher’s trigonometry lesson that uses an assassination attempt on the President of the US (pbuh) as an class assignment, the same kind of concern should be paid to ensuring that nutty threats against the public are investigated.

    2) Hardly matters if it’s a serious or credible threat or not. The objective of EDMD was to elict loud, voluminous and nutty postings from the activist wing of the ‘Religion of Peace’. You’d hardly expect the majority of the responses to be sane and rational denounciations of EDMD anyway. A couple of spittle-flecked jeremiads on every site that has Big Mo cartoons is (I thought) the objective, and the volume of the postings is probably more important than the content itself.

  7. CountingCats says:

    It’s not Choudry himself, but it is someone who knows the language and the theology of the Religion of Peace, and knows it well.

    Serious or not, that is what makes me think it isn’t a pisstake. I couldn’t have written that, I wouldn’t have got the language right.

    It might not be credible, but that is a different issue.

  8. Sam Duncan says:

    Mark Steyn nails it as usual:

    “I’m bored with death threats. And, as far as I’m concerned, if that’s your opening conversational gambit, then any obligation on my part to “cultural sensitivity” and “mutual respect” is over.”

    I’m surprised he missed the chance to say “I’m bored to death with threats,” which would have been more his style, but aside from that I couldn’t have put it better.

    “When your blades are in flames…”

    I guess they don’t watch a lot of fantasy. You got a flaming sword, you’re the man, baby!

  10. Lynne says:

    I’ve cleaned up my desk and wiped down my keyboard. I don’t want any angry, hate fuelled fundamentlist maniac thinking I’m a lazy slag as well as a dead woman walking. In the spirit of ‘Elf and Safety I’ve ensured that the fire extinguisher is handy just in case my cutlery draw catches fire. Can;t be too careful can you? Being a polite hostess I’ve put up some beer and ham sandwiches for refreshment. Shouldn’t Big Al’s cyber jihadists be here by now? Maybe they missed their bus.

  11. CountingCats says:

    This is why I say the bloke knows what he is talking about — a blade is a type of server.

    I prefer the vorpal ones, now with 10% extra snicker-snack

  13. IanB says:

    So far as I can tell, the only consequence of calling the police would be to get myself on a government list of FarRightExtremists.

    I’m inclined to just let it pass. Anyone can type bullshit on the internet. Anyway, it came from Sweden.

  14. NickM says:

    With Ian. We’d end up getting done for hate crimes and I’d end up on the pervert list for having said something uncouth about Jacqui Smith’s tits.

  15. CountingCats says:

    True, all true, but it is my name on the site registration.

    Oh, ok, but it is my name on the registrations tho. Still, “No greater love hath a man, than to lay down his life for a friend”.

    So, how do I ensure you are all informed when I get my throat cut? Someone will need to take over the site, and my mother can’t do it.

    I’d end up on the pervert list for having said something uncouth about Jacqui Smith’s tits.

    the only consequence of calling the police would be to get myself on a government list of FarRightExtremists

    And the reason you think you are not already on it is what? This is Tony Blairs Britain we are talking about here.

  16. Bod says:

    It lacks the pithiness of “All your base are belong to us”, but the guy got right into the spirit of the thing.

    I think that the treat of us being thrown from our keyboards, as threats go, is a little bit weaksauce, as is the prediction that our overclocked processors will go up in flames. Maybe it’s a quote from a hitherto unrevealed hadith, but it just seems to lack the primal energy displayed in the better known ones.

  17. IanB says:

    I’m just not that bothered by one nutter typing vague threats of damnation on the internets, really. I wouldn’t have given it its own post. It just makes one socially maladjusted tosser think he’s made a difference, when he hasn’t.

    Mark Steyn gets them, Pat Condell gets them, Sahara Knite gets them. I doubt that Luv2H8Kafirs@islam.net is anything much to worry about.

  18. Bod says:

    IanB’s used to dealing with loonies on the internets, after that little set-to over on the site-with-dark-blue-background.

    Is it me or has the internet gone absoultely nutty in the last few days?
