But this time, it's serious.
According to Haaretz, some Muslim preacher named Omar Bakri has publicly warned Paul McCartney not to perform at a concert in Israel. Said the psychotic Mr. Bakri, "If he values his life, Mr. McCartney must not come to Israel. He will not be safe there. The sacrifice operatives will be waiting for him."
("The sacrifice operatives". Bakri has quite a way with words.)
In the past, other foreign performers have canceled Israeli appearances because of "security concerns". But my favorite Beatle is not so easily cowed. "I was approached by different groups and political bodies who asked me not to come here" he said. "I refused. I do what I think, and I have many friends who support Israel." (OK, so he didn't actually say that he supports Israel, just that he has friends who do. I'm going to give Pauly the benefit of the doubt and assume that this is due to ignorance and apathy, not to hostility.)
I have my own message to deliver to Bakri and his bullies: You leave my Beatle alone! I don't care what you do to Ringo, but don't touch my Paul or there will be hell to pay!
Besides, you Bozos, if McCartney can survive his nutjob ex-wife, he can certainly survive you.
