GUEST,Ian cookieless Salman Rushdie - Outrage. (475* d) RE: Salman Rushdie - Outrage. 19 Jun 07

Am I understanding some of these arguments right? We should curtail our own literary endeavors and freedom of speech by not honouring a very successful and respected writer whose sophisticated literature and free speech others tried to curtial by an order to murder, just in case those same attempted murderers don't like it? Should we also, in the 1960s, have laid off giving Martin Luther King the Nobel Peace Prize in case the KKK objected? Should I resign from Amnesty International in case terrorists, state murderers and torturers the world over object to me sending letters?
