Paul McCartney Receives Death Threats

Paul McCartney
will be guarded by Israeli secret service at the concert in their country this month to protect him from the death threats he's been receiving by Muslim extremists. He'll be playing a show in Tel Aviv on September 25th, and the extremists, who call McCartney an enemy of Muslims, say he'll be targeted by sacrifice operatives if he chooses to go forward with it.

Israeli politicians have reportedly ordered officers from their secret service operation Mossad to protect the star, fearing an attack by suicide bombers. An Israeli official tells The Sun, "Anyone who tries anything will be meeting Allah sooner than they thought." McCartney remains adamant his solo show will go ahead despite urges to cancel, insisting to local newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth on Friday, "I refused. I do what I think, and I have many friends who support Israel."

Is it really worth it to go ahead with the show if he's getting serious death threats? Would you do it?
