David Letterman Receives Al-Qaeda Death Threats

When it comes to comedy, nothing is off limits in David Letterman's world- and that includes dead Al-Qaeda members.

And during a recent “Late Show” program, Letterman referred to the air strike death of extremist Ilyas Kashmiri by drawing his hand across his neck.

That didn’t sit well with Umar al-Basrawi, who took to the Shumukh-al-Islam website to post a threat against Letterman.

The post reads, “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. [Letterman] showed his evil nature and deep hatred for Islam and Muslims… We ask Allah to paralyze his tongue and grant the sincere monotheists his neck.”
