Online jihadist calls for David Letterman's assassination
EW.com ^ | August 17, 2011 | James Hibberd

Posted on 08/17/2011 12:52:31 PM PDT by Beaten Valve

A website frequently used by Al Qaeda has posted an assassination threat against David Letterman.

According to the SITE Intelligence Group, a frequent user of the online forum called on Muslims to kill the CBS late-night host after taking offense at a joke made on the program. A poster calling himself Umar al-Basrawi wrote: “Is there not amongst you a Sayyid Nosair al-Masri (may Allah release him) to cut the tongue of this lowly Jew and shut it forever. Just as Sayyid (may Allah release him) did with the Jew Kahane.” Sayyid Nosair al-Masri was tried for the murder of Rabbi Meir Kahane in 1990.

SITE analyst Adam Raisman tells EW the threat was made on Shumukh-al-Islam, a site where messages from Al Qaeda frequently first appear online in the United States. “It’s a clearing house for Al Qaeda material, it gets the most Al Qaeda supporters,” he said.

Raisman ranked the threat as more worrisome than the “warning” posted against South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone last year. “This was a more explicit threat,” he said. “It was direct and to the point.”

Hmm, I wonder what they're planning?

Car bomb, audience member wearing an explosive vest?

Why doesn't he just do it himself if it's such a good idea?

Sounds like a typical DUer, always wanting someone else to take on their responsibilities.

Not sure if Letterman is Jewish. Wiki.: “His father, Harry Joseph Letterman, was a florist of British descent; his mother Dorothy Letterman... a Presbyterian church secretary of German descent, is an occasional figure on the show, usually at holidays and birthdays.” Don’t know if his dad
was Jewish, etc.

Letterman is from Indiana, but has fully transformed into a liberal New Yorker. A big contributor to Al Franken for example.

Whats the beef with him, Al?

IIRC, Jewishness is inherited through the maternal line ergo Letterman is not Jewish. But look how these jihadi worthless bloody savages target someone because of his name.

Did Letterman insult jihadis? I’m no Letterman fan but death threats like these against a U.S. citizen expressing his First Amendment rights ought to result in some Islamic Rage Boy somewhere in the world swinging from a lamp post in the f#$%#@g wind!

Sick of these animals!

As a good and tolerant liberal, I’m sure Letterman will argue that, the jihadists have a right to feel and act they way they do.

I’ve never found Letterman to be entertaining. He just reads from the teleprompter and the crowd adores him.

bwahahahahahaha.... schadenfreude

the hater of "conservatives" and back stabbing little weasel, now gets a taste of the ultra-violence. Now if only Jon Stewart makes a snide little comment about the religion of peace. f'ing hilarious.

C'mon Dave... it's fun making fun of Sarah Palin, her kids and those mean old conservative Christians.... cause we won't kill you. Let's see how brave you are now. punk.... this is priceless. I'd like to start a pool for the jihadist and maybe an over and under for the number of attempts.

So what will the result be? Will Dave finally wake up and see the light that Islamic fanatics are the real danger and not the “Christian extremists” he regularly mocks? Or will he turn coward, never make a joke about Islamic terrorism again and redouble his ridicule of Christians to compensate? I know my guess.

Those non muslims all look alike, so to a muslim, Letterman is a Jew. Sort of like every non mormon is a gentile, to the mormons - Even Jews.

Top Ten reasons why an online jihadist would want Letterman dead:

10: Because last nights top ten list sucked beyond belief.
9: Because the jihadist discovered Letterman's role in the assassination of JFK and the Watergate scandal
8: Because Letterman dissed Michael Jackson
7: Because, worse than that, Letterman dissed Elvis
6: Because Letterman refused to give his comedy writers a raise in their pay.
5: Because some four eyed, bald, keyboard playing musician, who gave his name as David Letterman, slept with his sister. And his Mother.
4: Because the jihadist is a Jay Leno fan.
3: Because Letterman ignored his Facebook friend invite.
2: Because Letterman mocked Allah by getting his beard shaved off back in 2008.

And the number one reason why an online jihadist would want Letterman dead:

1: Because that famed comedy writer Umar al-Basrawi is sick and tired of getting rejection slips for all the unsolicited top ten lists he keeps on sending in to Letterman's office

“David Letterman assassination called for by jihadist”

Wednesday, August 17 2011, 4:19pm EDT
By Tara Fowler, Entertainment Reporter

SNIPPET: “An internet jihadist has issued an assassination threat against late-night host David Letterman.

The threat was made by a frequent poster on a site where Al Qaeda messages often appear first online in the US, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The individual apparently took offense at a joke made by Letterman on his CBS talkshow, in which the comedian made light of the death of accused terrorist leader Ilyas Kashmiri.

The online commenter wrote: “Is there not amongst you a Sayyid Nosair al-Masri (may Allah release him) to cut the tongue of this lowly Jew and shut it forever.

“He showed his evil nature and deep hatred for Islam and Muslims, and said that Ilyas Kashmiri was killed and he joined bin Laden. We ask Allah to paralyze his tongue and grant the sincere monotheists his neck.””

“Member of Jihadi Forum Calls to ‘Cut Off the Tongue’ of David Letterman”

SNIPPET: “On August 17, 2011, a member of the jihadi forum Shumoukh Al-Islam using the handle “’Omar Al-Basrawi” (’Omar from Basra, Iraq) posted a message calling on American Muslims to assassinate late night talk show host David Letterman. The post, titled “To the Muslims in America – Isn’t There a Sayyid Nosair among You to Chop Off the Tongue of this Hateful Jew?” read: “I have seen with my eyes and heard with my ears one of the scum of the Jews, one of their pigs, mocking the leaders of the mujahideen. It is the hateful David Letterman, an American Zionist, who hosts a comedy show called ‘The Late Show with David Letterman.’”
