The following article, from Worldnet Daily, gives us a picture of the world that Islamic fundamentalists envision. While some might not mourn the removal of Madonna and Britney Spears from the airwaves, Islamist zeal and eagerness to resort to violence to ‘protect’ Islam brings us into another world where, when in doubt about how to protect decency… try murder.
Interestingly, celebrity gossip site TMZ.com published an article on the same topic on September 11th. TMZ readers failed to catch the moral precision displayed by the website in providing an approachable example of the same ideology that brought about the attacks on 9/11. Many remarked that it was cheap and inappropriate to cover this on 9/11. And some readers thought that it was a joke, a sort of 9/11 prank by TMZ. Apparently folks who spend a lot of time reading gossip about the glitterati cannot comprehend that there are people in the world who believe in such violence. Unfortunately, such naïveté has some potentially disastrous, and definitely not comic, consequences.
Terrorists: We’ll cut off head of ‘prostitute’ Britney Spears
Madonna also targeted by jihad leaders who warn of ‘spreading satanic culture’
Muslim terrorist leaders threatened to forcibly convert Britney Spears and Madonna to Islam and warned if they resist, their heads would be cut off for “spreading Satanic culture,” according to a new book released today.

The threats, recorded on audio, come as Madonna is due to arrive in Israel Wednesday to celebrate the Jewish new year with fellow Kabbalah practitioners.
“If I meet these whores I will have the honor – I repeat, I will have the honor – to be the first one to cut the heads off Madonna and Britney Spears if they will keep spreading their satanic culture against Islam,” said Muhammad Abdel-Al, spokesman and senior leader of the Popular Resistance Committees terror organization.
The Committees, largely based in the Gaza Strip, has carried out thousands of rocket attacks against Jewish population centers and scores of shootings and bombings. It is suspected of bombing a U.S. convoy in Gaza in 2003 and took credit for a rocket attack yesterday that hit an Israeli military base wounding 69 – the largest casualty number of any Palestinian rocket attack.
Abdel-Al and other terror leaders were quoted threatening Madonna and Spears in Schmoozing with Terrorists: From Hollywood to the Holy Land Jihadists Reveal their Global Plans – to a Jew!, by author and WND Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein.
Audio of their threats was played today by TMZ.com’s new national entertainment television show and its website.
In “Schmoozing,” the jihadist leaders were petitioned to describe what life would be like if the terrorists took over the U.S. and imposed Islamic Sharia law.
They were asked what they thought of specific American cultural icons and personalities, but many state they never heard of scores of notorious U.S. celebrities they were asked about.
According to Klein, many terrorists interviewed were familiar with two U.S. celebrities – Madonna and Spears.
“Unfortunately, I heard the names of Madonna and Spears on [Arab] television when parents complain that their children neglect their studies and their values because they are influenced by your cheap American music that you call culture,” explained Sheikh Abu Saqer, a founder of the Sword of Islam terror group.
The Sword of Islam has taken responsibility in Gaza for bombings of Internet cafes, pool halls and secular music stores, and is suspected of attacking a United Nations–funded school in Gaza accused of allowing girls and boys to play sports together.
Abu Abdullah, a senior member of Hamas’ so-called “military wing” is quoted in “Schmoozing” describing what his group would do with Madonna and Spears if jihad groups took over the U.S.: “At the beginning, we will try to convince Madonna and Britney Spears to follow Allah’s way.”
But I honestly don’t think they will follow. If they persist with their whoring music, we will prevent them by force. I don’t think that I can be in the same place with these singers. They might be killed if they do not respect our laws.”
The Committees’ Abdel-Al accused Madonna and Spears of “spreading this culture by the Americans as part of the war against Islam.”
“If these two prostitutes [Madonna and Spears] keep doing what they are doing, we of course will punish them. First we will call them to join Islam.
This is the Dawah, meaning ‘summons’ or ‘call’. In the Koran, Sura An-Nahl 16:125 states “Invite (all) to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious.” This must be done before using force against infidels. When Bin Laden calls on Americans to convert, he is using Dawah as a prerequisite to Jihadi violence.
But if they keep what they are doing … we can stone them or even we can kill them if they keep … tempting men in order to put them far from Islam. … A prostitute woman must be stoned or must be eighty times hit with a belt.”
Abdel-Al said even before Islam takes over America he would personally kill Madonna and Spears if he ran into them. He boasted he would “be the first one to cut the heads of Madonna and Britney Spears.”
I guess that’s what you call the iron fist in the velvet glove… the proverbial offer you can’t refuse. Hello out there, Paul Krugman, are you listening?
