When I read this story this morning it was preposterous enough:

In what Fox News officials concede was a mistake, John Loftus, a former U.S. prosecutor, gave out the address [of Randy and Ronnell Vorick] Aug. 7, saying it was the home of a Middle Eastern man, Iyad K. Hilal, who was the leader of a terrorist group with ties to those responsible for the July 7 bombings in London.

But the full meaning of the story didn't hit me till I saw this (thanks to el serracho):

Yes, the grafito on the Vorick home reads "Terrist."

As if one needed any more sad irony, John Loftus is the author of the book The Secret War Against the Jews.

Can the pathology motivating the author of "Terrist" be much different from that which moved people to paint swastikas on synagogues and the homes of Jewish people?
