....that Islamists respond to a perceived slight that they are purveyors of violence with....threats of violence. Religion of peace my bottom.

Comedy show host threatened over suicide bomber joke

The actual article says she has received threats , the addition of the words "of violence" in the original post are pure conjecture and may be construed by some as only being in there for bigotted effect , some however may construe it as an inability to read properly

What do you think the threats were then? To publish an insulting limerick in the local rag? I can also read properly enough to know that you can't spell bigoted.

Just out of interest. Are there any Muslim comedians, and if so, do they ever tell non PC jokes? I hope so; comedy is supposed to break through taboo subjects with irony.

Plenty. Preacher Moss, Azhar Usman, Mo Amer did a tour called "Allah made me funny". Shappi Korsandi maybe, originally from Iran. Another woman I can't remember who also wore a hijab.

Sounds like an episode of 'The Comedians' from 1976.

I wonder if any of them tell that story that ends with 'They blow up so quickly these days.'
