Here are some links on Samina Malik, the 23 year old British Muslim who goes by the screen name "Lyrical Terrorist." She was recently the first woman to be convicted under England's new terrorism laws.
I've included some links that I think include the most information with the least amount of bigoted, islamophobic speech. What's really troubling to me is that most of what I've found thus far is not only in support of her conviction, but overwhelmingly comprised of hateful and myopic statements made by bloggers and commenters. I acknowledge that as of yet I'm not looking in the RIGHT places... but does anyone else find that alot of blogs dealing with malik to come up on google are all racist and in full support of such frightening jurisprudence? There's also a whole hell of a lot of ignorance: For example, one commenter says "Deport her." This begs the question, "to where?" Seeing as Malik was born and brought up in West London. Other sentiments I've found have echoed this... this one, however, I've found particularly troubling. Honestly I'm a little scared... and while I'd like to trust and believe in resistance, it's seems harder to find and access than bigotted, racist support. Don't get me wrong, there are some people out there with opened eyes.... just not nearly enough.
Sorry for the bit of a rant, here are some links:
Pretty Good Blog Post if for no other reason than the auther evokes Harry Potter.
Link that contains some of Malik's Poetry
