Muslims Threaten To Behead Women

Radical and militant members of "The Religion of Peace" threaten to behead female news broadcasters, Jerusalem Post; (bolding mine):

    A radical Islamic group in the Gaza Strip issued a death threat over the weekend against women working for the official Palestinian Authority television station, accusing them of dressing immodestly and behaving in a way that violates the teachings of Islam.

    The threat, the first of its kind against female employees of Palestine TV, was made by the Righteous Swords of Islam, a relatively new group that is believed to have links with al-Qaida.


    The group has claimed responsibility for a series of attacks on Internet cafes and restaurants in the Gaza Strip over the past year.


    Members of the group are also responsible for splashing acid in the face of a number of young women who had been accused of "immoral behavior."

Splashing acid in the face of someone is such a "peaceful" way to demonstrate your religion, yes?

Women Told To "Dress Up or Die"; Arutz Sheva:

    The “Swords of Truth”, an Islamist vice squad responsible for bombing dozens of internet cafes, music shops, pool halls and at least two restaurants in Gaza, has now turned its attention to female TV broadcasters.

    The group warned in a statement emailed to worldwide media Friday that it would behead female TV broadcasters in the Palestinian Authority who do not dress in strict accordance with religious Islamic standards.


    “We will cut throats, and from vein to vein, if needed to protect the spirit and moral of this nation,” said the statement, which also called female broadcasters “without any…shame or morals.”


    [...]


    Female broadcasters who were interviewed by the Associated Press (AP) said they had received death threats in calls to their cell phones. Many were frightened.


    One PA anchorwoman said she did not go to work on Saturday as a result. “It’s a dangerous precedent in our society,” she said. “It will target all working women.” The journalist, who does not wear a headscarf, requested anonymity, fearing retribution.

Uh...anyone on the Left want to add their "insightful" comments on how anyone is supposed to "negotiate" and "talk with" those that make threats - and carry them out - like those above? Come on, all my genius, faux-superiority complex Liberal readers who visit on a regular basis. Tell me your solution to this...I mean, other than your willingness to put your fat, liberal head on a chopping block.

Not only do I wish I were a journalist... I wish I were a journalist working there. That would be such a joy.
 
You'd be working to help spread the message of "The Religion of Peace", right ?!
 
How long would Rosie last? can you imagine what The View would be like under such conditions? These are sad, sad, dangerous people!
 
Ted, she wouldn't last long. But there is a plus side...I can't think of a better way for Rosie to appear in public, draped in a bed sheet from head to to; we don't have to look at her.

Thanks for commenting and visiting.
