Openly Gay Paris Mayor Delanoe Targeted by Islamic Radicals?

PageOneQ reports (via AP) that openly gay Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe (as well as targets in his city) is the subject of a threatening email sent to a radical Islamist website:

Delanoe"The e-mail's sender and the site were not identified by the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. They said only that the message went to an Internet site run by Salafists, or Islamic fundamentalists. Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe said on RTL radio that authorities informed him of the threat Saturday. 'I am calm. I have the information I need and I have complete confidence in the work ... of police headquarters vis-a-vis security problems in general, terrorism in particular and finally the protection of the mayor of Paris,' Delanoe said later on the TV station iTele.

Local and national anti-terrorist agencies are looking into the situation.

  2. You did not waste time! I guess that one nut with a website must mean that ALL Musilms are to blame?
    I did not know they had a hive mind!

  3. Naturally, I tend to identify with people who lived under European colonial rule for centuries. I think it's only fair that European nations allow those from their former colonies to migrate to France, Britain, Belgium, Holland, etc. to make better lives for themselves...well, to earn bigger incomes.

    "you took from us, now you owe us," is a valid attitude for those from the former colonies to have. BUT, if you're going to go live in Western Europe please leave your fundamentalist Islamic bullshit back where you came from. Yes, the European powers stole from you (hell, they stole me!...well, my ancestors, really). If you want to live in 21st Century Western Europe, fine--and get what you can out of it, good! If you want to live in the 10th Century with a corrupt form of Islam, then stay the hell where you at.

    JIMMYBOYO, call me what you want, but I meant what I said. I mean, I may get to Paris or Amsterdam one day. I don't want to go there and everybody 's livin' under Sharia law. Shit, I wanna' party with some handsome African/Arab Frenchmen, not pray with some damn Muslim lunatics.
