Re- do of extract of Yahoo news

Dear All,

I seem to have a problem with the reproduction of the article on Sir Alan 'target for extremists'.
So I'm typing it out because of failed technology.

Apprentice star Sir Alan Sugar has been said to be among a list of top British Jews thought to be targeted by extremists over Israel's Gaza onslaught.
According to a newspaper, the multi-millionaire businessman was named on an Islamic website along with pop producer Mark Ronson, Foreign Secretary David Milliband and Labour peer Lord Levy.
One strand on the site asks for help compiling a list of "those who support Israel", the paper said , while another asks "Have we got a list of top Jews we can target?"
A link to the Power 100 list of top British Jews is also provided.
The Community Security Trust, which advises safety advice to UK's Jewish Community, has said it expects the number of anti-Semitic incidents in Britain to rise as a result of the Israel-Gaza conflict.
The organisation said: "We are advising prominent Jewish individuals to be conscious of potential threats."

Ms Hamid, yes, I read this piece abt Sir Alan Sugar. It is hardly surprising that in times like this there will be more articles to drum up support for the likes of Sugar. Already certain tabloids are searching and highlighting anti muslim stories.

A former schoolmate of my children, who went to a Muslim school, sued her employer for sexual harrassment. The media is putting a different side of the story. Letters written in support of her case were never published.
