Muslim rage over Rushdie continues

Muslim rage over the knighthood of Sir Salmon Rushdie by Britain continues throughout the Islamic world, with threats, flag burnings and craziness galore.. Things are obviously ramping for the big day on Friday, when the imams get will get a chance to incite the faithful at the mosques.

Here are a few more shots of the latest Islamo-tantrum:

Iran's Foreign Ministry summoned Britain's ambassador to Tehran to protest against the knighting of author Salman Rushdie, calling it a provocative act, according to the official IRNA news agency .

"This insulting, suspicious and improper act by the British government is an obvious example of fighting against Islam," Ebrahim Rahimpour, Foreign Ministry director for Western Europe, was quoted as telling British Ambassador Geoffrey Adams.

The Brits have apologized...well, sort of.

Foreign Secretary Margaret Becker said today that Britain was 'sorry' if people were upset over writer Salman Rushdie's knighthood, but insisted it was awarded for his entire literary career.

"Obviously we are sorry if there are people who have taken very much to heart this honor, which is after all for a lifelong body of literary work," she said.

Home Secretary John Reid, who spoke before Beckett said that Britain won't apologize for honoring Rushdie.

"We have very strong laws about promoting racial intolerance. It isn't a free-for-all. We've thought very carefully about it," he said.

"But we have a right to express opinions and a tolerance of other people's point of view and we don't apologize for that."

Rather a mild reaction, considering that one of the ministers of the Pakistani government sanctioned homicide bombings in Britain over this.

As I said, Friday will be the big day to see how huge this is going to be with the Religion of Peace..

Good one, of course the very peaceful 'Muslims' are justified for destroying the whole world over this. What? The Queen can't Knight someone she likes? She can't knight someone that other people don't like?

But I'm sure Sir Rushdie has mixed emotions on this; the Queen has put him in much greater danger. Maybe he'll wish he had turned it down.

At least this incident will lose the terrorists even more of their dhimmidiot appeasers.

Islam in it's extreme is more political ideology than religion. In that way, it is only a 'Religion of Peace' in that when Islam rules the planet, there will be no one to be at war with. Where they are given an inch, they demand a mile. Islamic countries are becoming more extreme, extremists rule, they just keep quoting the Koran to justify their Jihad.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
appease religious killers

continue to spoil them
violent tantrums pay off
