Reading minds or taking threats seriously?

Reader comment on item: Radical Islam's Hypocrisy

Submitted by George (United States), Jan 18, 2005 at 23:00

"I am going to come back and blow up this place"...he said it but it had a different meaning according to CAIR! I am confused. Are we supposed to read minds and know what they mean?

When an Egyptian anti-Islamist person in New Jersey received email threats "we are going to track you down like a chicken and kill you", he probably thought of CAIR and said to himself: No...they don't mean it.

False assumption. He and his family were killed soon after the threats were made. Related?
