In your opinion. Fortunately, the sane world doesnt blame everyone else for whatever might happen to them. Myself. I was looking for answers regarding certain things I wasnt sure about, which lead me to a thread on here where we had 3-4 people posting verses from the Quran, mistranslating them and blaming all Muslims and Islam for everything. The people that commit these crimes, have already left the group and or been kicked out. Thats enough. Reinforced my point. Thanks. All? A lot of people had different things to say about Rushdie, but overall the major arguments were the same as they were presented by a group of people whose history was clearly the target. It would be unrealistic to expect Brazilians to rise up when someone writes negatively about the subcontinent. More proof that the thought Rushdie promoted has taken root in certaina reas of our society: I have to be oppressed because my thinking seems dysfunctional to you. Ofcourse, call the intellectuals, writers and experts that have written and commented on it unreasonable. After all, they can have any opinion as long as it absolves Rushdie of what he wrote about. Overwhelming readers in the West. Most people in the East, the people he actually targeted, see it differently.
