Far Right Embraces Fatwas

Today saw the release of my Comment is Free on the Fatwa death threat from a well known English (EDL) and Welsh (WDL) Defence League organiser.

From the pages of comments already on the article, it seems I’ve caused quite a stink yet again.

The threat was waiting for me upon my return from covering the latest EDL protest in Leeds on Saturday night.

The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) has been quick to act on this, one of two threats issued on Saturday, and on the violence and threats unleashed on journalists covering the EDL in Leeds, and is calling for an immediate police response.

The EDL has since put up a link to the CIF article denouncing it as “lies” on their website.
