ISIL calls for death of creator of comic book “The 99”

From Kuwaiti Times:

The creator of an Islam inspired popular comic series said that he takes death threats made by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and Al-Qaeda seriously. Following their recent call to kill former MP Waleed Al-Tabtabaei, ISIL has called for killing psychiatrist Dr Nayef Al-Mutawa, the creator of ?The 99? series as they deemed it slanderous to Islam because it imitates the 99 names of Almighty Allah.

Mutawa defended his ?humanitarian artwork?, saying that he received clearance from sharia scholars who told him that the idea and the comics do not contain insults to Almighty Allah or Islam, adding that he would have never went ahead with his project if they did.

These people are THE most thin-skinned and insecure people in the entire world, not to mention among the most psychotically bloodthirsty.
