A B-BBC reader draws our attention to this…

“A talk on sharia and human rights by NSS Council Member Anne Marie Waters’ atQueen Mary University of London was cancelled at the last moment because of anIslamist who made serious threats against everyone there.

… before it started, a man entered the lecture theatre, stood at thefront with a camera and filmed the audience. He then said that he knew whoeveryone was, where they lived and if he heard anything negative about theProphet, he would track them down.”

A search of BBC News site returned no hits for Anne Marie Waters. One canimagine what would have been reported had the aggressor been ‘Christian’ andthe victim Muslim?”

    Islamists “know who we are, and where we live, and will track us down”

    I referred to this in a DT blog and it was removed. No “Comment Removed”, just removed.

    What else do we expect of the BBC and their stool pigeons in the “respectable and progressive” media?
    If ever one toytown hornet with his mobile needed to be “Walter Wolfganged”, it would have been for this little sneak.
    Surely a few Labour Party stalwarts might have learned something about policing events from Straw and Reid….and would have been in the audience would they not?
    How many spineless Lefties can cower beind the one Guardian…even if you tack on Ariel with it?

    The Left have never been in favour of freedom of speech. Only the freedom to attack the Right, which is not quite the same thing.

    Excuse me for being sceptical.
    He then said that he knew who everyone was, where they lived and if he heard anything negative about the Prophet, he would track them down.” How precisely? Would he use his CIA designed facial recognition software and match it to the MI5 database?.

    Why did no one have the balls to take out their camera, almost all mobile phones have one, and take a picture? “Now we know who YOU are. GTF out of our meeting”.

      Well, with a slight tweak…

      ‘they then said that they knew who they were, where they lived and if they heard anything negative about the BBC shared elsewhere, they would track them down using a staff working through twitter and blogger archives to tie in to licence fee databases” 

      That seems precisely how BBC complaints operate. Maybe they share notes?

    Hate to have to do this, but to be fair (urggh, that word!) Five Live did cover this story in a Drive news bulletin on Wednesday or Thursday night last week.

    I wasn’t litening avidly at the time, but I seem to remember they did hve a reporter at the college and did question why no-one challenged this man, or his accomplices who were waiting outside.

    They also seem to make it clear that he was some sort of an Islamic extremist
