Gates of Vienna News Feed 4/15/2011

Gates of Vienna News Feed 4/15/2011As we reported yesterday, the Italian “aid worker” who was kidnapped by Salafists was later murdered. Now Hamas is blaming the Israelis, who they say is indirectly responsible for the murder.

Meanwhile, the “moderate” Muslims of the Jordanian government plans to try Kurt Westergaard, the Danish cartoonist who drew the famous “Turban Bomb” Mohammed. They have issued a summons to Mr. Westergaard to appear in court on April 25, when he will be charged with insulting Islam.

In other news, a Christian nurse in Pakistan was threatened with death for condemning the burning of Korans as well as Muslim attacks against churches. It was the latter opinion that aroused the ire of the Muslim zealots who threatened her.
