Did You Know...

The latest developments in the Armanious murder case…

* From the N.Y. Sun, we learn that a radical Islamist website has been tracking Christians on the online chat forum, Paltalk–which was frequented by Hossan Armanious:

The password protected Arabic Web site, at the address www.barsomyat.com, features pictures and information about Christians who have been particularly active in debating Muslims on PalTalk.

One page from barsomyat.com features a group of photographs of a Syrian Christian, “Joseph,” who now lives in Canada. Barsomyat.com’s users have posted personal information about Joseph, including his brother’s parole status, and make clear that they are actively trying to track down his current address…

(Hat tip: reader/blogger Ralph Thayer)

* Over the weekend, a candlelight vigil was held at the Armanious home.

* Joel Mowbray reports on Jersey Jihadists.

* Religion News Service looks at Copt-Muslim tension online.

* And Robert Spencer asks a burning question:

If the Armanious family did in fact receive a death threat related to their proselytizing on Pal Talk, what are the implications for our free society? If the murders were indeed, as many Copts suspect, a warning to them not to proselytize among Muslims, what does that mean for the free exchange of ideas that has always been one of the central values — perhaps the central value — of the American polity?


Update: The indefatigable Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch has much more background on this here, here, and here.
