Support from Religious Policeman

We have been mailed by "Alhamedi Alanezi", a London-based Saudi blogger, whose The Religious Policeman blog is dedicated:
In Memory of the lives of 15 Makkah Schoolgirls, lost when their school burnt down on Monday, 11th March, 2002. The Religious Police would not allow them to leave the building, nor allow the Firemen to enter.
"Alanezi" is a pseudonym, for reasons that will become clear:
I will be there on the day, but, I regret, anonymously, as sadly there are some of my fellow-Muslims who see violence as a solution to their own problems, and may choose to turn their email threats into reality. However I fully endorse this demonstration from people of all faiths. Wherever there is full freedom of expression, truth thrives, but tyranny and bigotry try to find a dark corner to hide in.
Alanezi maintains a MOL (Muslim Offense Level) meter on his blog. At the moment, it is "Condition Yellow: Elevated: Quite Offended".

The Religious Policeman is read widely by Muslim moderates, and we are very glad to have been receiving messages of support from the Muslim world since we were mentioned there.
