David Letterman Vs. Al Qaida
The FBI is investigating death threats directed towards David Letterman found on a jihadist website, including statements such as, “Is there not among you (someone)...to cut the tongue of this lowly Jew and shut it forever?” The author of the threats was angered over jokes Letterman has made involving al-Qaida leaders Osama bin Laden and Ilyas Kashmirandi. Oh, and Letterman isn't Jewish.
