Ed Miliband look alike Shereef Abdallah upsets the twitter police

by | 5th, January 2012

SHEREEF Abdallah is the pro Ed Miliband lookalike and scourge of twitter. The JC says Shaereef Abdallah once worked as a volunteer at Labour MP Glenda Jackson’s office and blogged for the Young Fabians, a Labour Party affiliate group.

Abdallah has been, allegedly, aiming his tweets at a British Israeli woman named “Rachel”. She had upbraided Shareef for his description of his online critics as “Nazis”.

Abdallah, or a tweeter using that name, wrote:

“I will hunt you down & fight you min by min. hr by hr. day by day. wk by wk. month by month. year by year for the rest of yr life.”

But will he make time to tweet?

He then made “a promise” to beat her up.


‘Abdallah’ then told a former Labour Party press officer he’d cut his throat, presumably when he was not longer dedicating his life to hunting Rachel.

‘Abdallah’ has also attacked ‘Julia’, of the Blairite blog Julie’s Think Tank . His tweets include:

“Your nightmare is just starting, Julia, it will only get worse for you every day 24/7 till you leave twitter”

“Zionists can’t save you, Julia, the only way to stop it is to leave twitter. Racist tory anti Islamic scum”

“I fear nothing not even death so will fight you and your ilk to my last breath.”

“… are you still alive FFS? You will be next after I end [Rachel]…. that’s a promise. sleep tight”.

The Jewish Chronicle reports:

The JC has been advised not to reveal the identity of the women involved as there is a risk that Mr Abdallah may turn his violent, often sexual fantasies into real acts of violence. Many of his tweets end with the sign-off “R.I.P.”

Julie writes :

Actually, it is too bizarre to be true but I am being stalked and death-threatened by Shereef Abdallah, an anti-Semitic wannabe Ed Miliband “lookalike”.

About two months ago, I first got into contact with him. I did not pick a fight. It was him who intervened in a debate a civilised one I had with another Twitter user who strongly disagreed with me over the decision to go to war.

After Mr Abdallah made the serious allegation that the Iraq war was illegal, I politely asked him to explain his position in legal terms and in return offered to explain mine. But instead of engaging in a factual debate, he immediately started to personally insult me. Ignoring his rants, I patiently outlined the significance of UNSCR 1441 in combination with 678 and 687.

Again, Mr Abdallah refused to engage in an argument and instead began to claim I called him a “jihadi”, a remark sent to me not made by me a small but significant difference. He then “noted and printed” my alleged insults and reported me to Holborn police. They sent him home three times, as he later admitted.

Ever since, he has been sending me aggressive and violent tweets several times per day, many of which he later deleted. According to Mr Abdallah, “Zionists cannot save me” as they “have lost every war since 1973” and indeed “no force on
