McCartney Ignores Death Threats, Will Perform in Israel

Debbie Schlussel has the story down cold, but generally speaking, McCartney is showing uncommon resolve in the face of public death threats:

"I was approached by different groups and political bodies who asked me not to come here. I refused. I do what I think, and I have many friends who support Israel."
Omar Bakri, an Islamic preacher expelled from Britain and now living in Lebanon, said McCartney's decision to perform as part of Israel's 60th anniversary celebrations has turned him into the enemy of Muslims worldwide.

"If he values his life, Mr. McCartney must not come to Israel," Bakri was quoted as saying. "He will not be safe there. The sacrifice operatives will be waiting for him." . . .

McCartney has also been pressured by pro-Palestinian groups to cancel the show, but has resisted.

  1. The "Religion of Peace" continues to show it's desire to kill people in a peaceful yet bloody and brutal manner.
