Bare Faced Islamophobia (again)

Here's another great example of Bonni Benstock Intall, the Holocaust denier at BareNakedIslam, doing what she excels at: telling outrageous lies in her headlines that are contradicted by the "sources" she links.

Headline: "Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood leaders call for prosecution of (Muslim) liberals, modernists, and secularists"

Sub-head: "As Congress is debating whether or not to give Egypt another $450 million in U.S. taxpayer dollars for its emerging sharia ‘democracy,’ Egypt is considering executing Muslims who aren’t Islamomaniacally religious enough. B. Hussein Obama seen grinning."

OK, we got that. "Egypt is considering..." so clearly someone in the government, and "Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood leaders.. so clearly a number of senior people in the government. Right?

Wrong. Actually it's ONE wacky cleric who is so unpopular he has to live in exile outside Egypt (he lived in California until the USA expelled him in 2005).

Of course, sometimes she can't even be arsed to pretend there's a shred of truth in her stories. Take this one, sourced from the neo-Nazi blog Sharia Unveiled. In a footnote we read "The above story is sourced directly to a veteran freelance journalist who was on assignment to cover the EDL Demo for the foreign press corps and the interview was conducted with the three un-named individuals by him. The story was verified and collaborated by all three. The three individuals requested their names not be released." R-i-g-h-t. So the source for this otherwise uncorroborated tale is an un-named journalist, working for the "foreign press corps" who didn't see fit to publish the story anywhere himself. Oh, and the story has already been debunked here, including a quote from Tommy Robinson of the EDL saying he doesn't care whether it's true or not, he's just spreading it anyway. Hey, that sounds just like Bonni.
