Two weeks ago I received a death threat from the IP address 188.8.131.52, which traces to Djibouti. It said that Steven Emerson, Andrew Cochran of the Counterterrorism Blog, and I would be “executed and brought to justice.”
Then this morning these three emails came in from the same IP address — the third one repeats the threat:
#1. Subject line, “A call to the TRUTH”:
This an amazing site that I have found very poisonous and Hate-overwhelmed. Mr Spence has never noticed that what you are fighting for is nothing and what you are fighting is against the TRUTH.
I once again call you to Give in to ALLAH and Be a muslim so you will be forgiven
#2. Subject line, “Spencer is a great hypocratic Jew” (actually, I’m not a physician at all!):
Basee on the information you put on the internet, it seems that there are the hallmarks of an angry jewsh who grows when he insults Islam.
#3. No subject line:
I have to inform you the Mr spencer the way you are wanting to challenge the Islam is an offending and can make us aggressive to you at anytime. I once again call you to change your attitude and behaviour with a Islam-loving attitudes that will spare a lot of energy.
Of course, I’ve received many death threats before. They are a sign of the brittleness and insecurity of the entire movement — they cannot oppose me on the field of ideas, they cannot refute what I say, and so groups like CAIR try to censor me in the public square, and its more bloody-minded coreligionists issue threats.
