While I have no "evidence" that David McKay is NOT doing as you suspect:I believe that McKay may be using some back-channel method to filter vulnerable personalities into the jihadists' cults, which are known to pay bounties to the families of their jihad "martyrs".
No one has offered any other explanation for their existence.
Does McKay have any financial benefits coming in from some odd corners of the world? Some "converts" out of the jihadist neck of the woods? Some joint activities with odd little charities? Anything like that at all?
Fact: if some young man in a city that included both Muslim and JC proselytizers were to shift over to a Muslim instead of a JC group, McKay would never be suspected of participating in delivering martyr-fodder to the jihadists by influencing such a decision while he might be collecting bounties.
have some evidence that David will endeavour to use (unproven) accusations against him, as "proof" that his critics lack credibility...Critics can point to virtually any group and any individual and issue
warnings about virtually anything they do, and how it could lead to
worse behaviours. But if no hard evidence is presented that they are
actually doing bad things, then it's all spurious. Our community,
for example, has existed for about 30 years. In that time, we must
surely have done some pretty awful things if we are really a
dangerous cult. But if, after thirty years of existence, our critics
are only warning people about what our behaviour could lead to, it's
a pretty sure bet that they are abusing the slippery slope argument.
The "dangerous things" that we KNOW
David has engaged in, is the practise of Fraud
(personal financial gain) through false pretences
(i.e. the claims he makes about himself and his "empire"), and in particular he operates a business for himself based on the entrapment
of young lives in invountary servitude
to him through unconscionable contracts
(they imagine that "worshipping David" (here giving their lives to him in unpaid service)....somehow "furthers" Gods work in this world)
David, by my count would have been actually engaged in this criminal deceit
for some 50 years now!
(NOT 30.....however I realize that the stupid old goat is several (full!) bricks short of a load now...and that he may have consequently lost some simple skills of enumeration!))David certainly has done a HUGE number of "very awful things".....(you will note, of course, DSM, David's transparent use of sarcasm here in an attempt to belittle the credibility of those who speak out against him......and the (coldly calculated illogic) of claiming that the accusations against him are ALL spurious, if even one of them is spurious
This self-serving circular reasoning, is as you would understand, simply the tactics that David has been regurgitating (from BERG and other cult figures that he emulates) for the course of his entire life.....in order to persuade those who are unaware of his background (and who may be potential "disciple material" for him) that he is being "unreasonably persecuted"...
Your links would not suffice for a criminal prosecution to be filed with the Dept of Homeland Security (however you are certainly welcome to try...please advise me of how successful you are here@) hence I must agree with Adrian that "labelling" David as a terroist, would actually (as you may see from McKays' own writings) merely be twisted to "protest his innocence....."
