Now the wrath of Al-Qaeda has been leveled against late night talk show host David Letterman. It seems Mr. Letterman made a joke about a drone strike eliminating one of the late Osama Bin Laden’s lieutenants. Ilyas Kashmiri got his 72 virgins courtesy of a drone attack.
Umar al-Basrawi called on Muslims in the United States to assassinate Mr. Letterman and (get this) “cut the tongue of the lowly Jew”. Al-Basrawi further writes, “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.’
David Letterman is not a Jew, he is a Presbyterian. Please get your facts straight before issuing a fatwa. Letterman is a life long Presbyterian. His mother worked for years as the church secretary of Second Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis. Little Dave went to Sunday School there.
Now, Umar, the correct way to issue a fatwa is to call Letterman a follower of the Cross. Perhaps, refer to him as an infidel Christian dog.
Muslims have no sense of humor about their own very sick religion. They are so insecure (as are all religious fanatics) that they can never laugh at their own foibles.
Meanwhile, Dave, keep the humor flowing about Al-Qaeda. Maybe you can come up with one of those Top 10 lists about the Taliban. Mr. Letterman, stay safe and keep those wicked barbs flying in the direction of Al-Qaeda. Who knows, perhaps, your satire will prove deadlier than a drone attack.
