Well, it's no surprise that the silly collection of 11th century barbarians running around in dirty nightshirts known as radical Islam has it's shorts all in a bunch again...
Muslim radicals burned an effigy of Queen Elizabeth Tuesday as Pakistan summoned the British ambassador over Salman Rushdie's knighthood and Iranian hardliners turned their fury on the monarch.
Anger has mounted in the neighbouring Islamic republics since the British monarch gave the 59-year-old author of "The Satanic Verses" the title of Sir Salman for services to literature at the weekend.
The row has thrown Rushdie back in the eye of the storm, 18 years after he was sentenced to death by Iran's revolutionary founder Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini for blasphemy in a fatwa that has never been revoked.
All it takes is the breeze blowing to trigger violent demonstrations with chants of "Slay the infidels" and "butcher those who mock Islam". If Islam would produce something in it's part of the world besides violence, religious intolerance, bloodshed, murder, poverty, hopelessness, misery, and despair, then we westerners might be a tad sympathetic....then again, not so much.
Practitioners of the peaceful religion of Islam doing what they do best...being outraged by the breeze.
