    “sees no harm in … spreading … death threats.” The tweet was deleted in 2019 when it was made. Twitter’s policy was to not enforce account suspensions against official accounts for heads of state. Trump’s personal account was suspended in 2020 after he officially lost the election and after repeated violations.

    This is too far. I think Islam has a problem, but a case like this shouldn’t prompt such a response. There are batshit craxy individuals, Islam just has a lot more and needs to get ahold of them

    if anything, this past year has taught me that Christianity itself is not very tolerant. I see hateful messages and militant type behavior in trying to get abortion clinics shutdown, bombings being averted. The other day there was a dude outside a planned parenthood with his kids calling girls walking by sluts and baby killers. People like him have stormed the capital and up until 50 years ago lynching black ppl, some in the name of Christ

    our current anti abortion laws, which are almost exclusively religiously motivated don’t even allow for exemptions for things like ectopic pregnancies which are non viable and carry a high mortality out the woman’s life at risk for something that could never be a baby. That’s a systematic practice and in a way is forcing religion on to people and will likely lead to more deaths than Islamic terroitst attacks in the last couple of years.

    There have been a lot of crazy Muslims and the majority have been religiously motivated to carry out heinous acts. A single individual like this going out and stabbing someone leads me to believe he’s not normal to begin with.


    Hope Salman makes a speedy recovery, he may have some nasty wounds but will likely be ok. It’s insane that someone would want to try to kill another person and be jailed for something so trivial as criticism of a religion

    Unfortunately, we are not talking about a single deranged individual here.

    Trump ushered his own terrorists into the capital, it’s a miracle nobody was killed. You have no problem supporting terrorist attacks like that though. Let’s not bring trump into this and paint him as a victim after someone else got stabbed

    Stupid thing is that that dude is celebrating this guy as whatever kind of fatwa mercenary, yet doesn't realize he didn't do his job.


    Do not pass go, do not collect 3.5 million dollars.

    Once again. Not vengeance. He's is going to be okay. Could have easily been worse, but it wasn't.

    Mr. Rushdie had been living under the threat of an assassination attempt since 1989, about six months after the publication of his novel “The Satanic Verses.” The book fictionalized parts of the life of the Prophet Muhammad with depictions that offended some Muslims, who believed the novel to be blasphemous. Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who led Iran after its 1979 revolution, issued an edict known as a fatwa on Feb. 14, 1989. It ordered Muslims to kill Mr. Rushdie.

    In 1991, the novel’s Japanese translator was stabbed to deathand its Italian translator was badly wounded. The novel’s Norwegian publisher was shot three times in 1993 outside his home in Oslo and was seriously injured​

    Not to interrupt any of the religious arguments, but:
    • Hoping for healing and more interesting interviews and written words from Rushdie. I'm not so sure he's going to make it.
    • Have read via BBC that there were two security officials present but I guess not in front of Rushdie, and there were no metal detectors. Rushdie just a few months ago noted that he wasn't worried anymore.
    Okay, back the religious argument.

    JFC! (religious reference) I never knew that. So that's at least four casualties because a religious leader couldn't just tell people to avoid reading a book, or even to just burn copies of the book, or to have the book banned in some bass-ackwards religious state or another. Still stunning to me.

    Not sure if you're posting the bullet points or if that's from a source, but he's going to be okay.
