he is a man of faith
Yes ,if anyones offends your religion, he must die !

Don't really know much about him or his work.

You have to have a level of maturity to deal with freedom of speech because many people have many opinions. If you get triggered easily I suggest you leave the west.

Indeed.

Some here react as if it is normal to stab people you disagree with.

Hopefully dead!
One could argue his current medical condition is worse than death.

Agreeed
Irrelevant or not. Every criminal shall get their punishment.
Likely going to Max security Federal Prison. Similar to Boston Bombers

Words fail me at how stupid some people can be. I hope the guy who did this gets the chair, because of his criminal actions, muslims living in the USA will find life just that little bit harder today.
I too hope he gets the chair. This attempted murder (or what could end up being murder considering the severity of the injuries) won’t help win any arguments, especially combating Islamophobia in the western debates. This attack will only embolden Islamophobic bigots, and make a man that was slowly fading into obscurity, relevant again to a new generation.

I disagree on the assertion that this will have any significant effect on American Muslims. For one, considering the victim was born into a Muslim family, for most Americans this will seem like Muslim on Muslim violence.

This attack seemed to be part of a larger campaign by the Iranians to avenge the death of Soleimani.

I’m guessing, in a few days, we will probably find out there was some Iranian government hand or influence on this. The perpetrator wasn’t even born when the Iranian leader’s fatwa was originally written.

In middle school, my teachers assigned us to read on of Rushdie’s books, Haroon and the Sea of stories. Which he wrote after Satanic verses. Even at that age, I became aware of the controversy around satanic verses, but still read Haroon and the sea of stories with an open mind (I was confident in my faith and what I had been taught about Islam to hear out Rushdie). (Basically the book was an allegory of what he went through in 1989) honestly didn’t really care for the book, seemed pedestrian (the villains were called the “Chup walas” or something like that, but like I said I was a middle schooler so maybe some of it went over my head, and I guess Rushdie could only focus on one topic in the year after the fatwa.

Freedom of speech is not freedom to be an Islamophobe. Islamophobes will be dealt with accordingly wherever they are.
Watch jinn exorcism videos. I have seen explicit cursing of Allah, the Prophet, and the Quran in them, yet no one gets triggered. That means the attack on Rushdie is not religious, it has political basis, same reason Khashoggi was assassinated.

West generally has freedom of speech. If you find this intolerable you should move back to your country of origin. Even in Pakistan, the person who assassinated Punjab's governor on the accusation he committed blasphemy got the death sentence.

Im being a conspiracy theorist here, but I have a gut feeling this was done to derail any potential deal that may be signed by August 15th, by IRGC Intelligence. They don't want this nuclear deal.

I have no feelings one way or the other towards the individual who was attacked.

Never even heard of him until I saw this thread, and began to research who he was.

I am however glad the nut job attacker was caught. I don't care what religion he represented.

Either way, it doesn’t make Iran look good when this nuclear deal looks to be getting the European Green light.

I think this just happened. 30+ years after his novel "The Satanic Verses" which depicted the Prophet Mohammad in a terrible way and causing Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini to put a fatwa on his head, this might have something to do with it. Not sure of the details as this was just posted on Twitter.


CNN and FOX are also just starting to show it on their newscasts.

For decades he was living under the security curtain of the USA/West.
What happened to that SATAN reminds me of a sentence by the BUSH THE MURDERERS 'YOU COULD RUN BUT CAN'T HIDE'

IMO, the same is applicable here, 'YOU COULD AVAIL THE (SO CALLED) BEST OF SECURITIES IN WORLD BUT YOU WILL NEVER BE SECURE'

The news is that his condition is not stable, on a ventilator and unable to speak.

Inside the Iranian Military/Intelligence apparatus?
Yes, their is plenty of opposition against this deal in the IRGC. Who feel that signing this JCPOA will lead to the downfall of the system.

This is a competition between people in Iran who want to pursue wealth, and other who want to pursue ideological expansion. If their is actually a direct link with this guy and the IRGC, it is practically a certainty that this attack was an attempt to de-rail a deal, timing is way too coincidental, by making it impossible for the Biden admin to sign anything with Iran.

Just 2 days ago, the EU had given Iran assurances that it will drop existing IAEA probes into past Iranian nuclear activity if it signs a deal, and Iran has up to August 15th to decide it. Otherwise the deal is dead.

That's right and it's SUPER expensive. Last time a friend of a friend fell off a mountain climb and his helicopter medivac bill was $65,000+!

Don't you have insurance for ambulace cover? We in Australia just pay a small amount for yearly ambulance cover and it takes care of everything.
