The wheels of justice have ground slowly in the case of two Muslims who issued death threats against internet and newspaper columnist Debbie Schlussel. One man has been allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor in a felony case, while another, currently outside the country, has been indicted. Debbie writes.
I have received death threats from four diverse members of the "Religion of Peace," threatening to murder me and my family members, after raping and torturing me. And I take them very seriously.
Last week, one of them--Robert Mustaq John--pled guilty in the U.S. District for the Eastern District of New York, and the previous week, another--Wasil Burki--was indicted in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. I've posted the court documents associated with both, herein, as well as a reposting of their death threats.
The actual threat from Burki, which Debbie has posted, is disgusting in the extreme, revealing what appears to me to be a seriously diseased mind.
Debbie is far from happy with the law enforcement response. Her comparison of the way in which serious threats against her were treated compared to the way lesser complaints from Muslims have been treated by the FBI is eye-opening.
While I am glad something has happened, I am not comforted that the guilty plea may not prevent the granting of citizenship, as Debbie points out. Once again, a questionable plea bargain seems to have been accepatble to the DoJ. Sandy Berger has Muslim company.
