Happy Anniversary, Salman

Gosh. Has it been twenty years already?
On 14 February 1989, a fatwā requiring Rushdie's execution was proclaimed on
Radio Tehran by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the spiritual leader of Iran at the
time, calling the book "blasphemous against Islam"

That Rushdie must be as good a hider as the Osama feller.
