As the conflict in Gaza rages on, Islamic extremists are turning their hate to Western nations and their Jewish citizens, naming several prominent Brits on "a list of those who support Israel.
U.K. paper The Sun reports that a member on an extremist site asks for help compiling a list, while another asks for addresses and info for "top Jews" to target. Among the celebs on the online forum Ummah that are listed: Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson and the star of Britain’s The Apprentice, Sir Alan Sugar.
British anti-terror expert Glen Jenvey fears that the list is far from harmless. “The Ummah website has been used by extremists. Those listed should treat it very seriously. Expect a hate campaign and intimidation by 20 or 30 thugs.”
Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar encouraged his followers to commit violence, saying Israel “legitimized the killing of their people all over the world."
The Community Security Trust, which advises Britain’s Jewish community on safety, said: “We are advising prominent Jewish individuals to be conscious of potential threats.”
