Blog Advocating Killing Muslims Deleted by WordPress.com | Online News Website

 

 

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced that a blog advocating killing muslims was deleted by WordPress.com today. The blog contained posts that advocated burning mosques, desecrated Muslim graves, recommended the “proper way to shoot a muslim [sic]” and made false bomb threats that implicated Muslims.

CAIR said that visitors to the “Bootislam’s Blog” will now see the message: “bootislam.wordpress.com is no longer available. This blog has been archived or suspended for a violation of our Terms of Service.”

CAIR asked American Muslims as well as others to contact WordPress.com yesterday to ask the hosting company to delete the blog because it violated its Terms of Service, which prohibits blogs that “contain threats or incite violence towards individuals or entities.”

Posts on the blog had headlines such as “Training in desecrating muslim [sic] graves,” “Burning Mosques – A lovely idea” and “The proper way to shoot a muslim [sic].”

“We thank all those who took the time to contact WordPress.com to express their concerns about the incitement to violence found on the blog,” Nihad Awad, CAIR National Executive Director said. “We also thank WordPress.com for taking swift and decisive action in this case.”

CAIR has reported the blogs content to the FBI, said Awad.

CAIR is America’s biggest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Their mission is to protect civil liberties, increase the understanding of Islam, empower American Muslims, encourage dialogue, and build coalitions that promote mutual understanding and justice.
