Just in case we don’t have enough problems in the USA these days, with flash mobs forming who rob and beat innocents, we now have David Letterman threatened by radical Muslims.
David Letterman, making the most of his American right to free speech, commented on the June 3 killing of an al-Qaida leader Ilyas Kashmiri by the U.S. military, saying he would join bin Laden, killed a month earlier. He even “demonstrated the way of the slaughter” by dragging his finger across his neck.
According to the Associated Press, a contributor identifying himself as Umar al-Basrawi posted a message on the Shumuka al-Islam forum, a popular destination for radical Muslims, attacking Letterman for his remarks. The man wrote that the host had made reference to Osama Bin Laden and Kashmiri, saying he, “put his hand on his neck and demonstrated the way of slaughter.”
Basrawi asks, “Is there not among you a Sayyid Nosair al-Mairi … to cut the tongue of this lowly Jew and shut it forever?”
Sayyid Nosair al-Mairi is the Muslim terrorist convicted of killing Meir Kahane in Brooklyn in 1990. Kahane was the founder of the Jewish Defense League, an ordained Rabbi, and a member of the Israeli Knesset.
Letterman, who currently hosts the ‘Late Show’ on CBS, is one of the most popular TV hosts in the U.S. and has been a fixture on late night television since 1982. David is not Jewish.
