Sienna Miller Gets Death Threats from Muslims

The trend of Muslims using threats of violence against those who offend them even slightly continues, with Sienna Miller the latest target.

Sienna Miller has been left fearing for her life after receiving a torrent of death threats. Islamic extremists are furious the actress is starring in ‘Interview’, a remake of director Theo van Gogh’s 2003 thriller. The Dutch director was murdered in 2004 after his controversial film ‘Submission’ sparked outrage among Islamic fundamentalists. Sienna, who is currently shooting the film in New York, is being targeted by similar political groups. She has been sent letters warning her “she will be sorry” unless she pulls out of filming.

A crew member told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “Sienna refuses to give in to these threats. The film hasn’t got anything to do with Islam. But because it’s being made as a tribute to Theo, the Islamic fundamentalists have hit the roof.” Her co-star, ‘Reservoir Dogs’ star Steve Buscemi has received similar death threats.

Sadly, this is now so routine that it is hardly shocking.

    So I assume that Michelle Malkin’s collaboration with people who make death threats is also contemptible in your opinion and worthy of a post of condemnation. She is, after all and American and a Republican

  2. James Joyner says:

    Malkin made no death threats nor did she “collaborate” with those who did.

    You have to wonder about the intelligence of those muslims. They insist in fighting a war they cannot win. An angry America is dangerous.

    Islan is a “Peaceful” religion, don’t ya know.

    ‘An angry America is dangerous. ‘

    When half the country only hates America it’s only dangerous to America.
