Al Qaeda Site Wants Letterman Dead

After 10 years of terrorist jokes, did David Letterman finally cross the line? On the website Shumukh-al-Islam, regularly visited by Al Qaeda, one disgruntled user issued a rallying cry for Muslims to attack the CBS late-night host. Apparently, Letterman mocked the death of Ilyas Kashmiri, a terrorist leader killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan in June. The angry poster 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.”
