Angry Muslims vs. the Queen

Regent Park demonstrationThere are lots of angry Muslims in the UK as a result of Salman Rushdie’s knighthood. Did you expect anything different?

This has the potential to be as bad or worse than the Danish cartoons:

TEHRAN, Iran – An high-level Iranian cleric said Friday that the religious edict calling for the killing of Salman Rushdie cannot be revoked, and he warned Britain was defying the Islamic world by granting the author knighthood…

“Awarding him means confronting 1.5 billion Muslims around the world,” Khatami said. “In Islamic Iran, the revolutionary fatwa … is still alive and cannot be changed.” Then-Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued the fatwa in 1989, calling on Muslims to kill Rushdie because his book “The Satanic Verses” was deemed insulting to Islam…

“Earlier they had published cartoons of our Prophet, and now they have given an award to someone who deserves to be killed,” Abdul Ghafoor Hayderi told a crowd of about 1,000 people in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city…

“Rushdie is a hate figure across the Muslim world because of his insults to Islam,” said Anjem Choudray, protest organizer. “This honor will have ramifications here and across the world.” — AP

  1. Shalom Freedman says:

    Perhaps the British Unions now boycotting Israel will join in the demand that the Queen apologize, revoke the honor given to Rushdie. This would be the proper move for these radical Leftist hypocrites and fools.
