SA Dentist not al-Qaeda backer January 22, 2007

More US stupidity. Putting more innocent people on their ‘terrorist watchlist’.

A South African dentist and his cousin, a Muslim cleric, have denied having any links to al-Qaeda or the Taleban.

They were put on a UN Security Council terror list after US accusations they were al-Qaeda “facilitators and terrorist financiers”.

The whole watchlist thing is one of the most ridiculous things to come out of the US in the post 9/11 world.  Bruce Schneier has written many in-depth and well-researched articles about this, which are available on his website, Schneier on Security.

According to the article:

Dentist Junaid Ismail Dockrat and cleric Moulana Farhad Ahmed Dockrat have threatened legal action to clear their names.

Come again. Threatened legal action. They have about as much chance of resolving the issue that as an ant fighting an elephant and winning.

This phrases sums it up perfectly:

If one is a Muslim and has Muslim interests at heart, one is considered a terrorist by the United States

Let’s hope that the South African government has more sense than to co-operate with the US over these silly allegations, and protects its law-abiding citizens from such bullying.
