Random House bows to Islamofascist pressure

Apparently the truth about Islam's pedophile founder hurts. Random House has canceled the U.S. publication of Sherry Jones' novel about A'isha, the child whom Mohammed (hellfire be upon him) "married" when she was only 9 years old. Random House's statement cited thinly veiled threats: "The decision was based on advice from scholars of Islam, among several creditable sources, that publication of this book might be offensive to some in the Muslim community and could incite acts of violence by a small, radical segment."

In other words, we're looking at more "protest" reactions like with the Danish cartoons of Mohammed. Since the novel was already published in Serbia, Sherry Jones will probably have a fatwa issued against her, if one hasn't been already.

It's strange. I'm trying to think of when Catholics "strongly advised" Dan Brown and Doubleday regarding "The Da Vinci Code," or when Protestants issued death threats against someone for mocking Jesus. You might remember, Catholics did protest against "The Golden Compass," but show me one person or structure that was ever threatened.

Back in 2006, when Pope Benedict merely quoted someone's observation of Islam, virtually the entire Muslim world was ready to explode. Note that that NY Times article was completely dishonest: Benedict didn't make his own statement, instead only quoting a Byzantine king from the 14th century, and daring to claim, "But unlike the cartoons crisis, the reaction has been verbal rather than violent." Oh really? Not only was he threatened, but churches in Israel and Gaza were firebombed, and Sister Leonella Sgorbati was murdered. If that's only verbal, I'd hate to see what real violence is! Would that be what Sherry Jones might have had waiting for her?

Come to think of it, I never did post a graphic I made:

These Muslim "protesters" are like the Obama campaign, always finding something to be outraged about.
