Google News Teams Up with Google Plus to Thank Allah for Sharon's Death

Is marketing Google Plus to Jihadists the way to go?

At least that's the best explanation that I have for what I'm seeing here at the top of Google's News page. I'm not a Google Plus member. I refused to even use its profile for YouTube so I can't be seeing anything that is being shared.

And I'm seeing the same thing in different browsers where I'm not even logged in. I'm sure there's some process by which a Google Plus comment on a news story somehow appears under a top news story. It's a terrible idea and an even worse idea when a comment is this hateful. But it may not be a coincidence.

I know Google is desperate to prop up its failed Google Plus service, but I'm not sure that marketing it to Jihadists is the way to go.
