    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. I’m always armed and as...

    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.

Khalil explains: "The Turkish ship, however, was organized by a...

    Left for dead, Christians offer to drop charges if allowed to construct church building. Rasha Samir was sure her husband, Ephraim Shehata, was dead. 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... Finally, the gunfire stopped and one of the...

    Jennifer Kesse would have turned 29 last week. The 24-year-old was taken near her Orlando condo a little over four years ago and has been missing ever since. Since then her Bradenton parents have searched for her and stepped into a national media spotlight in hopes of giving her case exposure. In the process, their lives have been open to threats from strangers mainly through a web site the Kesse family set up,, to find Jennifer. The site features case information, family letters and message boards. Anonymous posters were able to make threats online. However, last week Gov. Charlie...

    Ultra-fundamentalist militia claims UNRWA-run camp immoral. 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. UN officials say the attackers left behind three bullets and a note threatening to kill Ging and others unless the UN cancels its activities for some 250,000 Gaza children. Two days before the incident, the previously unknown "The Free of the Homeland" group issued a statement criticizing the...

    SNIPPET: "CAIRO - An American-Yemeni cleric whose Internet sermons are believed to have helped inspire attacks on the U.S. has advocated the killing of American civilians in an al-Qaida video released Sunday. Anwar al-Awlaki has been singled out by U.S. officials as a key terrorist threat and has been added to the CIA's list of targets for assassination despite his American citizenship. He is of particular concern because he is one of the few English-speaking radical clerics able to explain to young Muslims in America and other Western countries the philosophy of violent jihad. The U.S.-born al-Awlaki moved to Yemen...

    ....I initially had mixed feelings about Everybody Draws Mohammed Day. Provocation for its own sake is one of the dreariest features of contemporary culture, but that's not what this is about. 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,...

    ia Dan Savage's blog at The Stranger, some clever chappie (I don't know who) has declared May 20, 2010 "Everybody Draw Mohammad Day," in support of Matt Stone and Trey Parker and in opposition to religious thuggery. Why May 20? I haven't a clue, though it could have something to do with Otto ascending the throne of Greece. Or, more likely, King Sancho IV of Castile's founding of the Study of General Schools of Alcalá. I will be employing my tremendous skill as an illustrator, of course, and expect that my colleagues will do the same. If they refuse, they...

    The controversy over SB 1070 continued Friday as death threats to the Tucson office of U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva prompted the closure of all of his district offices, including one in Yuma. 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...
  • "South Park" airs censored episode after threat [Caves to Peaceful Religion]

    04/22/2010 8:31:11 AM PDT · by Scythian · 54 replies · 1,986+ views
    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.

    Senior N.Korean Defector Lives with Constant Threat to His Life The life of Hwang Jang-yop, a former secretary of the North Korean Workers' Party and now head of the Committee for Democratization of North Korea, has been under threat since his defection to South Korea in 1997. Prosecutors on Tuesday said they foiled a plot by two North Korean spies to assassinate him. Because Hwang is the no. 1 target of North Korean terrorist attack, he has been guarded by seven or eight bodyguards at all times. His plans to visit the United States and Japan were kept secret even...

    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.

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Gregory Giusti's 83-year-old mother had not heard that her son had been arrested, but she told ABC7 he has a history of mental problems. She does not think he would be capable of carrying out the threat; he has never owned a gun, and she blames Fox News for getting her son worked up. Giusti was arrested Wednesday afternoon for threatening Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi over recent healthcare legislation. "Greg frequently gets in with a group of people that have really radical ideas and that are not consistent with myself or the rest of...
