Amina Wadud Death Watch

What do you bet Amina Wadud gets murdered? The death sentence, after all, is the penalty for blasphemy under Islamic law. Wadud is about to become the first--that's right this is the year 2005 and she will be the first--Muslim woman to lead prayers in mixed company. Notice the very last line of the article:

Three New York mosques refused to host the service, Nomani said. It was moved to Synod House after a site that had earlier been selected for the service, an art gallery in SoHo, received a bomb threat.
