By Beila Rabinowitz

January 15, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - - Susanne Winter [see Austrian Politician Faces Jail For Remarks About Islam] the FPO party candidate who is running for the Graz city council in Austria, has been forced to retain the services of bodyguards after a threatening video was placed on You Tube.

The video includes threats and the sounds of machine gun fire as pictures of the burning World Trade Center are shown. Accompanying the video is a written text:

"Look at this Suzanne, due to your comments something similiar can occur in your country - you will be responsible for it."

The message was not only directed at Winter but also:

"on all the unbelievers who have no respect for Allah and Islam. Inshallah the day will come when you will be punished."

The origin of the video is unknown. At the end it only says "Made by Bilal and Jasko".
