Borklog: One entry

7 October 2002

We just received a very odd snail-mail wacko letter today. Postmarked Pittsburgh, hand-addressed and written, switching between red and blue ink. It started off with
The motive driving suicide volunteers is revenge. They have stopped fighting to liberate Palestine. They have suspended the dream of a state. They now dream of killing as many Jews as possible
(whoa). What made it even more bizarre on first-reading is that "suicide volunteer" to me is someone who answers a suicide hotline. "why would they watn to kill Jews?" before I made the connection. A number of phrases in this letter (unsigned, no return address) also appear in This article from Google's cache. Also included were 4 (Christian) Bible tracts. All very strange. As far as we can tell, no Anthrax powder.
