|Dorky Imam al-Awlaki: Issued a Fatwa|
on Molly Norris
The Washington Post reports:
Several months ago, FBI officials alerted Norris to what they were treating as a "very serious threat," according to a report. At that time, Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki said that Norris was a "prime target" for execution and that her "proper abode is hellfire."Read the whole thing here.
Awlaki, a New Mexico-born 39-year-old, has been called arguably the highest-profile English-speaking supporter of violent jihad. He has been linked to the recent Times Square bombing attempt and reportedly inspired Texas's Fort Hood massacre.
Norris drew her "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!" cartoon in April in response to Comedy Central's editing of its program "South Park" and the animated show's attempts to depict Muhammad -- and to satirize reactions to any effort to ridicule Muhammad.
Anyone who doesn't believe Islam is incompatible with American freedom and democracy needs to think again. I would also warn Muslims in America: any assassination of critics of Islam in America could result in a backlash that you don't even want to contemplate.
As for the dorky Yemini Imam Al-Awlaki, he is on the predator drone hit list. With any luck we'll kill him before he kills one of us.
