    The Mexican Mafia has threatened Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu with his life, ordering a “green light” to take him out for his support of Arizona’s new immigration law, SB 1070. A “green light” indicates that the assassin given the order must complete the murder or he will be killed himself, as will his family. “I understand this threat, yet I will not run in fear or change my support for SB 1070 and my demands for President Obama to secure our border with 3,000 armed soldiers in Arizona and start building the fence again.

    Police investigating claims of child abuse by Belgian clergy have told the BBC they are probing death threats against witnesses and magistrates. Last month police raided a meeting of Belgium's Catholic bishops as part of their investigation, seizing computers and documents. They even searched the tomb of at least one cardinal, prompting an angry response from the Vatican. The country is one of several where the Church has been shaken by abuse claims. The investigation into child abuse allegations in Belgium's Catholic Church has already prompted extraordinary scenes, says the BBC's Dominic Hughes in Brussels. But now the investigation has...

    A murderous anti-Semitic theme appeared on Facebook Sunday, when a user named “Alex Cookson” launched an open invitation to an “event” called “Kill a Jew Day.” The page on the popular social networking Web site urged users to violence “anywhere you see a Jew” between July 4 and July 22. A large image of a swastika was placed at the top of the page. Under the heading “description,” Cookson wrote, “You know the drill guys.” It was the fourth time that a call to murder Jews had been put on Facebook within recent days.

He was covered with blood, had two bullets inside him and was lying facedown in the dust of a dirt road. Samir was lying on top of him doing her best to shelter him from the onslaught of approaching gunmen. With arms outstretched, the men surrounded Samir and Shehata and pumped off round after round at the couple. Seconds before, Samir could hear her husband mumbling Bible verses...

Masked gunmen from an Islamist group torched a UN-run summer camp for children and teens in Gaza on Sunday, Army Radio reported, the top UN aid official in Gaza said. John Ging says the assailants tied up the guard early Sunday, burned tents and vandalized bathrooms.

Nick Gillespie's post reminds us that the three most offensive of the "Danish cartoons" - including the one showing Mohammed as a pig - were not by any Jyllands-Posten cartoonists but were actually faked by Scandinavian imams for the purposes of stirring up outrage among Muslims.As Mr Gillespie says: It is nothing less than amazing that holy men decrying the desecration of their religion would create such foul images,...

Grijalva spokesman Adam Sarvana told The Yuma Sun Friday that two death threats from the same man came into the Tucson office earlier that morning. Police were posted outside that office immediately following the calls. Sarvana, who said he spoke with officials in the Tucson office, said both times the caller said he would come into the office and "blow" everyone's brains out and then go down to...

    Satirical animated TV show "South Park" beeped out the words Prophet Muhammad and plastered its Wednesday episode with the word "CENSORED" after being issued a grim warning by a U.S. Muslim group. The irreverent comedy show on Comedy Central also substituted a controversial image seen last week of the Prophet Muhammad in a bear outfit with one of Santa Claus in the same costume. It was not immediately clear if the move was a bid to tread carefully following the warning against the "South Park" creators, or if they were poking fun at the fuss.

    A defense lawyer is calling for calm after death threats have been made against teenagers charged in the death of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince, who committed suicide after she was allegedly bullied by schoolmates. "Not to minimize what happened to Phoebe Prince in any way, but translating this into death threats and public harassment has got to stop," says Colin Keefe, who represents Sharon Chanon Velazquez, accused of tormenting Prince, who hanged herself on Jan. 14. "It's gotten way out of control," adds Keefe, who says Velazquez has been driven temporarily from her home.

Several threatening e-mails regarding Andrews have been sent to sportscaster Dan Patrick since last September, according to Marshall B. Grossman, Andrews' attorney. "Until very recently, [the e-mails] were of a sexual nature, but then turned violent" last month, Grossman said. He said the e-mails received in March "are specific, they're violent, they identify the location and method of intended murder." Grossman said the existence of the threats were first revealed to Andrews on Thursday morning....

I’ll be interested to see what conservatives do with the information that Leboon donated to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign — that decision aside, there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to the threats Leboon would make, looking into a camera, as the self-appointed “messiah.” Leboon threatens...

Richmond police later determined, however, that Cantor had not been targeted by political opponents. Instead, they concluded, the incident was a...

This is not the right way to respond," added Rep. Joseph Pitts, R-Pa.,...

Things got tense Wednesday night on Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor," when New York Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner — an outspoken advocate of universal health coverage — repeatedly shouted that host Bill O’Reilly was "making stuff up" about the enforcement of the law. At one point, Weiner glowered silently on camera, then shouted "Watch this" to O’Reilly, pointing to his mouth in the course of explaining that the IRS was not going to assess fines on citizens refusing to...
