The celebrity Imam to the jihad stars has issued a fatwa against the Seattle cartoonist who was just expressing her basic human right to free speech. Silly girl. Sharia law says do not insult Islam -- no renderings of Moe, ho! And here in Omerica, sharia law (Islamic law) trumps freedom of speech. It's why I will be going to Detroit to testify in my lawsuit against the city -- the freedom buses were banned as offensive to Muslims (but they're manna from heaven to apostates).
The "charismatic" imam to the devout Muslim world has placed the Seattle cartoonist who launched "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" on an execution hit list. The ummah reacted to the contest with the same openmindedness, tolerance and modernity we have come to expect.
Imam Awlaki was the go-to Muslim cleric for reporters scrambling to explain Islam after 911; he was the same imam who guided the 911 Muslim attackers to commit jihad. Got that? Al-Awlaki was the "spiritual adviser" to three of the hijackers who attacked America on September 11, 2001. He guided the 911 jihadis, the Fort Hood Major Muslim, the Christmas balls bomber. He was imam at the respected Dar al Hijreh Mosque, while being the go-to Muslim for big media for information on Islam. Exactly like un-indicted co-conspirator, Hamas-linked CAIR being the go-to guys for media now.
The NY Times has a soft spot for this annihilationist. This cartoonist should be given 24-hour protection until the jihad is crushed and defeated.
The Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki - the radical who's also been cited as inspiring the Fort Hood, Tex., massacre and the plot by two New Jersey men to kill U.S. soldiers - singled out artist Molly Norris as a "prime target," saying her "proper abode is Hellfire."
FBI officials have notified Norris and warned her they consider it a "very serious threat."
The other cartoonists, authors and journalists in Awlaki's crosshairs are Swedish, Dutch and British citizens.
The 67-page terror rag is seen by terrorism experts as a bald new attempt to reach and recruit Muslim youth in the West.
"The medicine prescribed by the Messenger of Allah is the execution of those involved," writes Awlaki, 39, a Las Cruces, N.M.-born American citizen.
"A soul that is so debased, as to enjoy the ridicule of the Messenger of Allah, the mercy to mankind; a soul that is so ungrateful towards its lord that it defames the Prophet of the religion Allah has chosen for his creation does not deserve life, does not deserve to breathe the air created by Allah and enjoy a life provided for by Allah. Their proper abode is Hellfire."
Awlaki's rant first appeared in late June in "Inspire," which was posted to the Internet by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, a Yemeni branch linked to a Christmas Day bombing attempt on a U.S.-bound jet.
Initially, only three pages of the Web version were accessible, leading to speculation it may be fake. But Sunday, the full edition was posted on jihadist Web forums, according to SITE Intelligence Group.
David Gomez, the FBI's assistant special agent in charge of counter-terrorism in Seattle, said Norris and others were warned of the "very serious threat."
"We understand the absolute seriousness of a threat from an Al Qaeda inspired magazine and are attempting to do everything in our power to assist the individuals on that list to effectively protect themselves and change their behavior to make themselves less of a target," Gomez said.
Norris initially grabbed headlines in April when she published a satirical cartoon on her Web site that declared May 20th "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" as a way to mock Viacom and Comedy Central's decision to censor an episode of "South Park" that showed the Prophet Mohammed dressed in a bear suit.
Soon after, the topic exploded on the Web with the start of a Facebook support group for Norris.
