Is that a fatwa in your pocket...

Or are you just glad to see me?

DUBAI — The head of an al Qaeda-led group in Iraq has offered a $100,000 reward for the killing of a Swedish cartoonist for his drawing of Islam's Prophet Mohammad and threatened to attack major Swedish companies.

Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, leader of the self-styled Islamic State in Iraq, also offered $50,000 in an audiotape posted on an Islamist Web site on Saturday to anyone who killed the editor of the newspaper that published the drawing by Lars Vilks.
You'd think some of these self-described devout Muslims would have something else to do with their bags of cash, like say... helping Iraqi or Aghani refugees... but apparently they simply have murder on their minds.

And no room for anything else.

$150,000 for snuffing two Swedes! Where do they get all that money(he asked innocently)?
I'm kind of offended that people who would drag the world back to the Dark Ages, are not at all shy about utilizing the technology of the infidels they despise, (the internet).

We live in multicultural societies where everyone's values are accorded equal status, those Swedes should accept their deaths as a byproduct of one of the great benefits of diversity.

yes children, there was a period in human history, since lost in the mists of time... when being discriminating actually wasn't considered to be a horrible crime.
