A Seattle cartoonist who drew a satirical cartoon suggesting an “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!” — an idea she later disavowed — reportedly has been placed on a hit list by a terror leader linked to the failed Times Square car bombing.

Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki has put cartoonist Molly Norris among a list of nine other cartoonists, authors and journalists whom al-Awlaki blamed for “blasphemous caricatures” of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad, the New York Daily News reported.

He did so in an English-language al-Qaida magazine called “Inspire,” saying that “the medicine prescribed by the Messenger of Allah is the execution of those involved,” according to the newspaper.

It also said that FBI officials had warned Norris that they consider it a “very serious threat.”
