Terrorists threaten Senator Jacquie Lambie with beheading unless she helps introduce sharia law

POLICE are investigating a poison pen letter claiming that terrorists plan to behead Tasmanian Senator Jacquie Lambie unless she helps introduce sharia law in Australia.

The letter warns that “you are the enemy of Islamic State, therefore, I will take the honour in beheading you”.

It includes graphic images of a man having his head sliced off by a knife.

Her office conceded the letter could be a fake threat, linked to opponents of a new mosque in Adelaide, but said that they were taking the threat seriously and had referred the matter to the Australian Federal Police.
