Religion of Peace Raging Over Rushdie Knighthood

If you think this is bad, wait until Friday, the day of prayer, when the mullahs, imams, and sheikhs of the Islamic world will work their special magic on the millions gathered in mosques. It’s gonna be a hell of a Friday.

… Aslam said the knighthood was resented by all Muslims.

“The British High Commissioner was further told that Pakistan deplores and regrets this decision which is contrary to our common objective of building inter-civilisational and inter-religious understanding and harmony,” she said.

And we all know what their definition of “inter-civilisational and inter-religious understanding and harmony” is. Remember?


Brian Ledbetter has a photo gallery of the fresh protests against Rushdie’s “insult.” They could use a spell-checker:


Will Britain defend itself or fold? So far, it has summoned up the guts to express “concern” over the Pakistain religion affairs minister’s comments. Make that “deep concern:”

Britain expressed its “deep concern” today at remarks made by a Pakistani government minister about the knighting of Sir Salman Rushdie as protests against the award continued among Islamic hardliners in Pakistan and Iran.

Today Mr Brinkley “made clear the British Government’s deep concern at what the minister for religious affairs was reported to have said,” according the spokesman.

Danish cartoons publisher Flemming Rose, now a blogger at PJM, weighs in:

Unfortunately, too many people do not understand the serious consequences of misplaced respect for offended religious feelings. A prime example – the United Nation’s Human Rights Council’s passage of a scandalous resolution condoning state punishment of speech deemed insulting to r

swhitebull    Poll Bet How Many?    6/20/2007 1:55:45 PM
After the usual Friday night Imam Incite-a-Riot Sermons in mosques all over the world. I would like to start a pool of how many people die from the resulting mayhem, protests, whining from the Religion of Perpetual Victims.
swhitebull - I wasnt aware that such an omnipotent deity such as allah (aka highjacked moongoddess)  needed any defending from the "Faithful." Doesnt he have the balls to take care of himself? Sounds like a massive dose of inferiorty on the parts of allah's adherents that they cant tolerate any one else's opinions or criticisms of Islam.
