His books ar
e silly. They  have little to no literary value. The only reason people have to read them, is his "poor persecuted writer" status.

 
Applause !
 
I completley agree with the above post. The BEST way to react crackpots like Rushdie is not to react at all! to I-G-N-O-R-E them. They thrive on attention, even if it be bead-press or infamy.
 
Had it not been for the Fatwa, no one would have heard of him . . and he wouldnt have sold a single book. I know a gentleman, who's father knew Rushdie, back before the fatwa days. NO BODY had heard of him. His book was doing poorly, and he was reduced to giving his books away for free as "Gifts".
 
I think we should be ignoring the Dutch film too . . .and we should have ignored the Danish Cartoons as well . . . it was only due to the uproar that the cartoons starting revolving via emails etc. And then EVERY paper started to publish them. . . hence an entire cycle.
 
Honestly speaking, causing an uproar, burning tyres etc will not "ban" such media. . . they just add fuel to the fire and promote them.

Oh, whatchsalman, I thought Islam was the religion of peace?  You are aiding and abetting the murder of a man.  Geez, and you wonder why so many in the West are concerned regarding Islam.

Without appreciation!Angry

Rushdie is hilarious, and jabs at religion in a Monty Python manner.  This is western satire.

Watch some old Monty Python flicks, The Life of Brian for insight.LOL

LOL: you should enjoy this slap against the religious crusades:

Hilarious.Smile

Just remember, we have been satarizing politicians, religions, and celebrities for a very long time.  Catholics use to really catch it during the Potato Famine.

LOL, yes, I understood the double entendre, and your implication, hence my post.  As to you insult, it is "intelligent." When insulting another's intelligence, it helps if you spell it correctly.Wink

Didn't mean to insult though. Sorry if you felt so. I am not so intelligent at all. Just average to earn my bread, by the grace of Allah. Keep smiling.
