Now we're getting somewhere! Your constant harping about Muslim cabbies, Muslim foot-washing facilities, and especially the flying imams is finally bearing fruit! We now learn that the lawyer who represents the six imams bumped off a flight from Minneapolis last fall has received a death threat, a pretty specific one:
WASHINGTON, May 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said today that a "terror" threat has been received by the New York lawyer for six imams, or Islamic religious leaders, suing US Airways over allegations of religious profiling during an incident last fall in Minnesota.

The letter sent to attorney Omar T. Mohammedi first outlines the sender's opposition to the lawsuit, and then states in part: "We have located the residences and identified the families of all parties (the plaintiffs and you). . .We plan, at random, to start systematically killing the people on our list if this suit proceeds. You, personally, have been identified as the prize kill. It is our belief that terrorists like you should understand the true meaning of terror."
Systematically at random, eh? Spot says we can eliminate mathematicians and statisticians from the suspect pool for this threat!
It is people like Katie and her boyfriend Scott Johnson and their hysterical, foaming intolerance that make threats like this possible. Chances are, of course, that the threat is simply more bilious gasbaggery, but if it's not, people like Katie who use positions like hers to fan the flames of malignant bigotry will have blood on their hands, too.
