Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: http://bit.ly/MMASurgeEp1 David Letterman was the target of a death threat in a violently worded post that popped up on an extremist networking site frequented by al-Qaida, according to SITE Intelligence Group, a private company that trolls the web for possible terrorist activity. The call to "cut the tongue of this lowly Jew and shut it forever" apparently came after Letterman—who, for the record, is not Jewish—cracked a joke on Late Show perceived as offensive to Islam. "He showed his evil nature and deep hatred for Islam and Muslims, and said that Ilyas Kashmiri was killed and he joined bin Laden," the poster, identified as Umar al-Basrawi, wrote on the site. "We ask Allah to paralyze his tongue and grant the sincere monotheists his neck." The jihadist recalls Letterman's celebrating the recent death of the terror kingpin by gleefully dragging a finger across his neck. The angry terrorist also posted a photo of the 64-year-old, describing him as 'a sick Jew with defined features'. Taped at the Ed Sullivan Theater on Broadway in Midtown, Letterman's show is on summer hiatus. A spokesman for its production company, Worldwide Pants, wouldn't comment on the threat. So what do you think? Is Letterman in actual danger, or is this so-called Jihadist just blowing some steam?
