Glen “don’t call me Omar” Jenvey, the anti-Muslim “Obsession” pundit and liar who convinced a UK newspaper to print fake Islamist threats against Jews, has announced his conversion to Islam was fake, a mediocre gimmick with which he has gleaned a bunch of new experiences worthy of writing a book about.
From Richard Bartholomew:
In a video which he posted to Liveleak and then pulled (but which can still be seen in Google cache), he explains that the whole business was an exercise in infiltration, as a result of which he now knows more about Muslim extremists in Wiltshire and Hampshire, the area of the UK in which he lives (although he also met lots of moderates). He also claims he had to undertake this subterfuge because the security services are “clueless” and “institutionally racist”. He kisses a crucifix, mentions the fact that he is gay, and tells us that during his undercover period he would read the Koran while drinking beer and speak to Omar Bakri on the phone while eating a bacon sandwich and drinking wine. He also says he has been working for “an MP and a diplomat” – presumably a reference to Patrick Mercer MP, who has lately been keen to distance himself from his past association with Jenvey. We’re promised more information when he has written his book.
Completely worthless. You could see this coming back in June.

Glen Jenvey confesses that he wrote fake Islamist postings which led to front-page media stories hyping false threats against UK Jews.
Jenvey – who has since converted to Islam - admits all in a message at the forum where he originally posted his sockpuppet threats:
Brother i’m sorry for the Allan Sugar story plant. I’m retired now from spying on Muslims. I saw a chance to install fear back in Jews who were killing Muslims.I was wrong to use you and your site.If you need any thing to help you in any way in the name of Allah just ask.
But yes the Sun did not know who posted it.I say sorry to you from my heart. if you want show the police and get me arrested. but with the first ramadaam coming i want to clear my past sin’s before i start my fasting and pray.
I would write this on your forum but im blocked out. may Allah reward you for your good work you do.Ameen

Aside from the question of media gullibility, Richard Bartholomew brings up another significant issue:
And what about the credibility (as if it ever had any) of “Obsession,” which was distributed as a free DVD to 28 million American homes in 2008, and which featured Jenvey along with the likes of Daniel Pipes, Alan Dershowitz, and Brigitte Gabriel?

I wonder if this is a real conversion or the latest effort by “Obsession”-pundit Jenvey to become a super-secret agent and plum the depths of Islamofascism.
An update on the latest escapades of sockpuppet master Glen Jenvey, who lately, along with his friends, have taken to wild accusations of pedophilia against a blogger who have exposed his lies.
The master-of-Muslim-extremist-sockpuppets Glen Jenvey story is ricocheting around in unusual directions. An evangelical reporter for the ANS news service named Jeremy Raynalds who has ties to Jenvey has accused an Al Jazeera news editor and columnist for the Guardian of being a ‘terrorist webmaster’ after the Guardian published a short story about the accusations that Jenvey faked online terror threats against UK jews. The newspaper, says the ANS hack, is conspiring with Muslim terrorists “to protect its reporter,” who is the ‘true source of the threats.’
I was Googling Jenvey and discovered one tie between Jenvey and Raynalds that other bloggers have not yet identified: Jenvey was one of the interviewees in the “Obsession” movie, and here in his profile at the “Obsession” website is a promotional hyperlink to Raynalds’ new book, “War of the Web: Fighting the Online Jihad.”
Richard Bartholomew reports on the whole incident, and comes up with an apropos uber-summary of this story: “Really – it’s that weird.”
