A jihadist has demanded the death of late night talk show host David Letterman. In a rant on the Shumukh al-Islam Web forum, the man called for his US allies to take out Letterman and “cut the tongue of the lowly Jew.”
A man that calls himself “Umar al-Basrawi” wrote that: “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.”
The death threats are a result of Letterman’s jokes concerning Osama Bin Laden. South Park creators Trey Stone and Matt Parker were also targeted at one time for their cartoon spoof of Muslim religion. Although Letterman’s people said that they weren’t taking the threat that serious, there is rumored extra security now around the host.
