IS calls for murder of Sayeeda Warsi

Observer Report

London—The Islamic State has named British-Pakistani baroness Sayeeda Warsi, the first Muslim woman to sit in the United Kingdom’s cabinet, on a “kill list”, while describing her as a “politically active apostate”.
Published in the militant group’s magazine, Dabiq, IS called for the murder of so-called apostates, including presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin and Tory Business Secretary Sajid Javid. The article warned: “If figures such as Warsi and Javid are caught before they repent, then there is no amnesty for them and theirs shall be a painful and fatal punishment.” Republican Keith Ellison, the first Muslim to be elected to the US Congress, was also named in the magazine.
“Daesh is a collection of liars, murderers, terrorists and rapists. No Muslim I know recognizes what they preach as Al-Islam,” he said in a statement. Despite the fact that high-profile figures have been named in the list for publicity, “the threat is expected to be taken seriously by the Home Office”, British newspaper the Independent reported.
