This story has been going around for several days now, but the threatening video is still there. Google, which owns YouTube now, saw fit to remove the video of my talk at Dartmouth, but this one, with its death threat, is apparently just fine by them.
From the Daily Mail (thanks to all who sent this in):
A leading opponent of plans to build Europe’s largest mosque in east London has seen a chilling “obituary” for him posted on the internet.
The film on video-sharing website YouTube is entitled In memory of Councillor Alan Craig and contains pictures of him with his wife and two young daughters.
It was apparently posted in retaliation for his opposition to the mosque.
Mr Craig has now contacted police in fear of his family’s safety and demanded that the video be taken down.
Islamic group Tablighi Jamaat wants to open the 12,000-capacity “mega-mosque” in Newham near the main 2012 Olympic site.
The FBI has described the group as “a recruiting ground” for al Qaeda, which it denies.
Yes, and this video makes that denial all the more convincing, eh wot?
