Madonna and Britney Spears Threatened with Beheading

Madonna & Britney

The leader of a Palestinian terror group has targeted Madonna and Britney Spears for spreading “Satanic culture,” and threatened to behead them. Muhammad Abdel-Al, the head of the Popular Resistance Committees, based in the Gaza Strip, made the comments in a new book, Schmoozing With Terrorists, that presents interviews with members of terror organizations. Abdel-Al was quoted as saying:

If I meet these whores I will have the honor—I repeat, I will have the honor—to be the first one to cut the heads off Madonna and Britney Spears if they will keep spreading their Satanic culture against Islam… If these two prostitutes keep doing what they are doing, we of course will punish them.

NME reports the comments come just as Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie are heading to Israel to celebrate the Jewish New Year. Terrorists, they say crazy stuff.
