: I should have added the words — “which an emailer believes was apparently inspired by…” Commenters are quite right to catch me on that. When I got email on this, I found the blog but no link to Al Jazeera and was, at first, qualifying the statement that this was on their site because I couldn’t find it (I keep forgetting to go to the .net vs. the .com). Once found, in its full context, I should have added that qualification. I thank the commenters for the editing.
