   In another demonstration of the Barbarous nature of the Iranian leadership of Ayatollah Khomeini and his henchman. The reaction to the announcement this week that Ahmed Salman Rushdie is to be Knighted was over the top once again. This Bombay, India born British novelist, has been on the death list since 1988. That is when the Ayatollah put a "fatwa", death threat, on Mr. Rushdie for writing The Satanic Verses. The bounty for his death has grown to over a million dollars. This week when the Knighthood was announced the Pakistani Religious Affairs Minister, Ijaz ul Hag, announced that he "the honor bestowed on Rushdie justified new suicide bombing of Britain! The Committee for Glorification of Martyrs, an Islamic movement in Iran raised the amount of money offered for the killing of Rushdie from 100,000 to 150,000 dollars. This man is a noted author who wrote the best seller about the relationship between Christopher Columbus and Queen Isabella of Spain, and many children books. Civilized Religions have been known to often ex-communicate authors who write material the Church feels is offensive and blasphemous, but only a cult like the Muslims would condemn someone for their writings. Iran sends a card to Rushdie every year to remind him he is still under a death sentence!
While this barbarian behavior is going on the Diplomats in this Country and some others are still tring to negotiate with this group of terrorists running Iran. Their futile quest to convince the Iranians to stop production of their nuclear weapons capability is ongoing. This despite the fact that the Israeli Intelligence people are estimating that Iran will be capable of detonating a dirty bomb in Israel or the U.S. later this year. Because of this knowledge. The Israelis are rumored to be preparing an air strike on the three nuclear facilities of Esfahan, Natanz and Arak before the Iranians can begin an attack on Israel using Hezbollah and or Hamas troops to launch the strike.
Although Russia has its' own problems with Muslims in Chechnya. They are supplying advanced air and missile defense equipment to both Iran and Syria. The longer people who are avowed enemies of Iran like Israel, Great Britain and America wait to perform decisive military action against these threats. The harder it will be to take them out, and more costly in lives lost. WE must quit "fiddling" like Nero and act decisively if we don't want a dirty bomb going off in one of our major cities.
