Rushdie Strikes Back

Iranian government has finally banned all books of Salman Rushdie, the author of Satanic Verses, the notorious book which caused quite a turmoil in the lands of the never setting holy crescent. Letting books of a writer one was determined to kill at sight circulate freely  was absurd to say the least and this anomaly has been corrected by this long awaited law.

Rushdie, however, was quick to respond: he decided to offer his novels (in Persian) free in downloadable format. This presents a golden opportunity for those who seek his head. They now have a chance to know their enemy first hand without resorting to hearsay. Getting to learn something about your target's crimes before killing him should be a moral obligation for every candidate wishing to accomplish this honorable task.
