Pro-Iraq war MPs hitlist removed from website
Friday 05 November 2010
A hitlist of MPs who voted for the Iraq war was today removed from an extremist website after the Home Office urged the US to act against it.
The post on the revolutionmuslim.com site yesterday hailed the student who tried to kill Labour's Stephen Timms as a "heroine" and encouraged others to follow her example.
A Home Office spokesman said: "We did get in touch with the US government about it and it has come down."
The site was among those cited as an influence by Roshonara Choudhry, 21, who was jailed for life this week for stabbing East Ham MP Mr Timms twice in the stomach at his surgery.
"We ask Allaah for her action to inspire Muslims to raise the knife of Jihaad against those who voted for the countless rapes, murders, pillages, and torture of Muslim civilians as a direct consequence of their vote," yesterday's post said.
