Death threats against Hoder

Iranian blogger Hossein Derakhshan, aka Hoder, is concerned about death threats against him and other Iranian bloggers emanating from a blog called Islamic Army.

Hoder writes:

I never took them seriously before, but this time I'm a bit concerned, because they seem to be a different group who have possibly liked the original blog and have tried to adopt their message and to prepare enough evidence for the original claims, at least about me. (Although I'm the first place in their the original list, there are many other names.)

It seems they have a serious message this time, and when I add this to the recent mentions of my name in the radical Islamic newspapers such as Jomhouri-e Eslami and Kayhan, it doesn't look very good.

So, even though it still may be only a childish game, I guess I have to inform Canadian police and contact Google to see whether they can trace them, especially via their emails in their Gmail account:

Go to Hoder's post for more information, to give him support, and let him know what you think.
