To Sir, with Love

Apparently, the religion of peace is angry with the UK for bestowing a knighthood on their opressor Salman Rushdie. So angry, in fact, that Pakistan has demanded that the UK withdraw the title, while angry students chanted "Kill him! Kill him!"

Let’s hope the UK doesn’t budge here. Oh, Pakistan’s Minister of Religious affairs points out that it would be OK to "explode a bomb on his body", since the West* accuses Muslims of acts of terrorism, such as, I dunno, bombing people.

Some officials thought the protest might be unhelpful since Britain is an ally in the war on terror, the one that’s going so well for the US.

I suppose it’s a bit like proponents of the "Culture of Life" gunning down doctors who perform abortion procedures.
