The worst aspect of this is the readiness of so many in the mainstream media to kowtow to this thuggery and practice Sharia self-censorship. Some Western "journalists" rush to accommodate this Muslim rage and hate by joining the Islamic supremacists in calling for restrictions on the freedom of speech; here are three recent examples from mainstream media enemies of the freedom of speech: Eric Posner, Sarah Chayes, and Nathan Lean.
"Al Qaeda Mag Publishes 'Wanted: Dead or Alive' List," from the Weekly Standard, March 1 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
"Yes We Can: A Bullet A Day Keeps The Infidel Away."
The latest edition of the al Qaeda English-language magazine Inspire is out today. A digital copy of the magazine, provided by MEMRI (the Washington D.C. based Middle East Media Research Institute), shows a "Wanted: Dead or Alive" feature on page 10 of the new issue:
"Wanted: Dead or Alive for Crimes Against Islam," the page reads. The list includes: Molly Norris, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Flemming Rose, Morris Swadiq, Salman Rushdie, Girt Wilders [sic], Lars Vilks, Stephane Charbonnie, Carsten Luste, Terry Jones, and Kurt Westergaard.
No further reason is provided to explain why these folks were singled out for the hit list, though many are notable critics of radical Islam.
"Yes We Can," the image reads. "A Bullet A Day Keeps the Infidel Away."
"Defend Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him," the image reads.
