WARNING: Muslims(?) Using Fraud to Get Gmail Passwords

I just received a third attempt to obtain my gmail password. The wording of all of these messages is the same and they are a type of phishing attempt. If they can get your password, they can then delete your entire blog. I believe these attempts originate with online jihadis as they always come right after I criticize Islam.

Their phony warning email to me (and my responses in red) are below.
