It’s enough to Instill confidence in intelligence services everywhere: the BND, the German intelligence agency, is apparently monitoring Jihad Watch as an “Islamic internet site.” Or perhaps it is the UK tabloid The Sun that is getting this all wrong; one of the purported Jihad Watch comments The Sun quotes, “She needs to be very careful…,” is indeed in this thread about Sila Sahin, but the other, “She must pay,” is not.

“Fanatics’ fury at Muslim Playgirl,” by Allan Hall in The Sun, April 27 (thanks to Robert):
A MUSLIM actress has caused a storm by posing naked for Playboy.
Sila Sahin has been branded a “whore” and a “western slut” after appearing topless on the cover of the German edition of the men’s magazine.
And Islamic fanatics have posted threatening internet messages.
Sila, raised in Germany by conservative Turkish parents, says she fears being “spat at” and “shamed”.
Her parents are said to have reacted with “horror” at the 12-page coverage, and her mother has apparently cut off all contact. […]
But Islamic internet sites are being monitored by the BND – the German intelligence agency – after threats were posted about her “shaming Muslim womanhood” and “prostituting herself for money”.
One poster on the Jihad Watch website wrote: “She needs to be very careful…” Another simply said: “She must pay.”
A kebab shop owner, asked on German TV what he would do if Sila were his daughter, replied: “I would kill her. I really mean that. That doesn’t fit with my culture.”…
