yeah nice one Rushdie, better go back into hiding the jihadists will be after your butt over this...


What is needed is a move beyond tradition -- nothing less than a reform movement to bring the core concepts of Islam into the modern age, a Muslim Reformation to combat not only the jihadi ideologues but also the dusty, stifling seminaries of the traditionalists, throwing open the windows of the closed communities to let in much-needed fresh air,"


.. assuming any of them really care about such idealistic fantastical concept.

someone has to say it and i believe he is the only one that can. his history with the Islam people (Satanic Versus) as muddy as it is, actually adds strength to his argument here in my opinion. Sure these Islam fundies already dont respect him... but why give them what they want? Regardless of his reputation his message comes with a lot of weight.
