Paul McCartney Threatened with Suicide Bombers

Omar Bakri threatened Paul McCartney with suicide bombers when the former Beatle is scheduled to play a concert celebrating Israel's 60th anniversay.

"Paul McCartney is the enemy of every Muslim. We have what we call ‘sacrifice’ operatives who will not stand by while he joins in a celebration of their oppression." Sunday Express

Self-styled preacher of hate Omar Bakri claimed the former Beatle’s decision to take part in the Jewish state’s 60th anniversary celebrations had made him an enemy of all Muslims.

Sources said Sir Paul was shocked but refused to be intimidated.
“Instead of supporting the people of Palestine in their suffering, McCartney is celebrating the atrocities of the occupiers. The one who is under occupation is supposed to be getting the help.

“And so I believe for Paul McCartney, what he is doing really is creating more enemies than friends.”

Explaining his comments, Bakri told the Sunday Express: “Our enemy’s friend is our enemy.

“Thus Paul McCartney is the enemy of every Muslim. We have what we call ‘sacrifice’ operatives who will not stand by while he joins in a celebration of their oppression.

“If he values his life Mr McCartney must not come to Israel. He will not be safe there. The sacrifice operatives will be waiting for him.”

Now Islam wants to kill a Beatle. Do you think the aged liberals at Rolling Stone will express the same outrage over this as they do over the fact we have a President that is determined to wipe out the freaks that want to kill musicians? I don't.

Well put hening, liberalism is a mental and scial desease.

You slackjawed conservatives would cream your jeans if they threatened to bomb the Dixie Chicks.

The only reason conservatism is not a mental disease is that you'd need a brain to host the disease.

Heh. The Dixie Chicks? You don't know "slackjawed conservatives" and their music preferences very well. :)

The Dixie Chicks are liberal, dimwit. Most of us here in flyover redneck country can't stand them.

Try again.

Muqtada: the adjective "mental", as in "mental disease", refers to the mind, not the brain. You would need a mind to host a mental disease. Your riposte would have been much sharper had you gotten that detail right. Alas, you would need an education to recognize the distinction.

I wonder if Omar Bakri has considered his own safety. One can imagine Paul McCartney taking these insults and threats to heart and setting about to have the man who has threatened his life hunted down and killed. Considering his very large fortune, it seems feasible for him or his heirs to make the attempt.

Mean Mr Muqtada,

Conservatives wouldn't celebrate the death or threat of death against the Dixie Chicks, no matter how appalled we are at their trying to mix music with politics.

We would actually advocate sending the Marines or the 82nd Airborne into whatever rathole Bakri is living so they can give him the opportunity to meet his own 72 virgins.

Mean Mr Muqtada,

Unlike the liberals, who would cheer the demise of a conservative, we feel that you have a right to your opinion. In fact, it is us "slackjawed conservatives" who have kept this country safe for you to spew such misguided commentary.

Maybe we should leave you and your ilk to the tender mercies of the jihadis that you side with against President Bush. Let us see how much sympathy they will have for your political positions.

I'm old enough to remember when the Beatles first came to the USA.

There were many groups in America at the time who would have liked to see a terrible accident happen to those kids with the mop top.

We came around, the Jihadists NEVER will.

As a Libertarian, neither Liberal nor Conservative, I must say I feel much safer these days around Conservatives rather than Liberals when it comes to free speech.

In the 1970s, and even in the '80s under Reagan, the Conservatives were the prudes. They were the ones marching against Playboy and Penthouse at 7/11s, and wanting to ban pornography on Cable TV. Now they've completely backed away from that.

It's now the Liberals who are wanting to ban free speech: Political Correctness on college campuses, No criticisms of Barack Obama allowed in the press, their silence Geert Wilders and Fitna, and even their alarming alignment with Islamo-Fascists who want to destroy all our civil liberties.

It's the free speech issue that has shifted us Libertarians over to the Republicans this election cycle.
