Jihadists agitate for the death of the Jew, David Letterman

Whenever someone says something that Muslims do not like, they are immediately accused of being a Jew.  It's easy and it automatically demonizes that person, whether or not they are Jewish.  David Letterman, despite the Jewish-sounding last name is not, yet this fatwa assumes he is, courtesy his remarks and hand gesture.  I find this very funny, but at the same time very serious, as Islam is not known for having a sense of humor.  After all it was the Ayatollah Khomeini who said 'In Islam there is no humor".

Al Qaeda threatens to cut David Letterman's tongue out and assassinate him over jokes about terror leader’s death

Threats to cut David Letterman's tongue out and assassinate him have been posted on a website frequently used by Al-Qaeda after he gloated about the death of one of Osama Bin Laden's lieutenants.

A frequent online commenter called on Muslims to kill the CBS late night-host after taking offence at jokes he made about the death of Ilyas Kashmiri.

According to the SITE Group, which tracks extremist websites, a poster calling himself Umar al-Basrawi called for U.S. counterparts to assassinate Mr Letterman and 'cut the tongue of the lowly Jew'.

'I saw with my own eyes and heard with my own ears, one of the lowlifes of the Jews, and one of their pigs, mocking one of the leaders of the mujahedeen,' he wrote.

The talk show host, who is not Jewish, reportedly celebrated the death of the terror leader by joyfully signalling a finger across his neck.

The jihadist posted a photo of the 64-year-old, describing him as 'a sick Jew is defined features'.

SITE analyst Adam Raisman told EW that the threat was made on Shumukh-al-Islam, a site where messages from Al Qaeda frequently first appear online in the U.S.

'It's a clearing house for Al-Qaeda material. It gets the most Al-Qaeda supporters,' he said.

At least we know Al-aeda is watching Letterman.  I wonder if they count these Al-Qaeda supporters when doing the ratings...young Arab male between 18 and 35 perhaps?
