people don't forget .
The stabber was 24. He wasn't even born in 1988.No. Once they believe fairy tales, their whole life is mapped out for them.
Absolute prat stabs author and gets locked up. Stabbing triggered by dead Iranian Ayatolla.
Nothing to see here, albeit best wishes to the author.
It would be nice if the fatwa were called off, and Iran told there would be no trade, no flights, no entry here, etc till they do so.
Slightly HARD line maybeI’ve just read in the Guardian:
Iran’s government has long since distanced itself from Khomeini’s decree, but anti-Rushdie sentiment lingered.
In 2012, a semi-official Iranian religious foundation raised the bounty for Rushdie from $2.8m to $3.3m.
I don’t know the implications of “semi official religious foundation” though.
