Latest from Lenin’s Tomb

A couple of relevant posts over at Lenin’s Tomb during the past couple of days. In “Clowns for jihad” (15 August) Meaders expresses scepticism that the absurd Omar Bakri ever represented a serious terrorist threat (“I could be wrong, but one of the things you would not do, if you really fancied restaging 9/11 in London, would be to organise a widely publicised conference in celebration of this fact”). And in “They shall not parse” (16 August) China Miéville takes up Outrage’s false report that Yusuf al-Qaradawi called for the Crown Prince of Qatar to be stoned to death. But remember, folks, you read it here first.
