Christian web columnist stalked and threatened by terrorists

Jeremy Reynalds, director of the New Mexico homeless shelter Joy Junction, and a regular contributor to several anti-Islamic terror forums, has been targeted for assassination.

Christian journalist and long-time friend of Internet Haganah, Jeremy Reynalds has been targeted for killing by Islamists on the Al Ansar forum (ansarnet.ws).

The thread:


In a thread on the Houston-based site, the person who ran the now-defunct mawsuat.com site starts by blaming Reynalds for the site's demise, posts a POBox address for Reynalds, and asks if anyone else has more information about him.

In the discussion that follows, the Islamists first post Reynald's home address so that he might be "visited", then a picture of him and a wish that his ribs should be broken, and finally they offer their prayers to Allah that He should deliver to them Reynald's "fatty neck" - a clear reference to the current fad of decapitating anyone deemed to be a critic of the more lethal forms of Islam.

The thread closes with a heartfelt "amen".

Reynolds has responded by saying that threats like this do not intimidate him, and that he's not backing down.

The forum site which includes the threats is housed at a US-based internet firm, Everyone's Internet of Houston.

OK Mike, did anyone say what the authorities are doing about it? Are they doing anything yet? Some of these folks don't have a good understanding of the US.

No word as of yet, but Jeremy has been posting on his site, on Haganah.us, and FreeRepublic.com regularly for several years now; I'm sure he's taking personal precautions, local constabulary notwithstanding.

I'll keep everyone updated as I hear any new information.
