Controversy of the Day

ISIS published a ‘hit list’ of Western Muslims and a Hillary Clinton aide is on it

This is seriously disturbing: Not only Huma Abedin, a top Hillary Clinton aide, but also, US Representative Keith Ellison, and three American imams are on the ISIS "hit list" for the crime of ... being moderate Muslims.

Members of the British parliament are on the list too.

In twisted ISIS logic, these people are not fervent enough Muslims and promote the idea that Islam and the West can co-exist. So they deserve to die.

The list came out in Dabiq – the terrorist group's glossy propaganda magazine. (Yes, this terrorist group has a glossy magazine. It's part of their sophisticated propaganda machine.)

The magazine actually asked readers to kill these prominent Muslims and they were called "overt crusaders" and "apostates" (people who have renounced their religion).

Abedin is a close aide to Clinton, and she's married to former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, who is Jewish. She's been accused of being an extremist Muslim in the past.

Ellison is the first American Muslim ever to be elected to Congress.

Ellison was the only one who responded to the threats.
