“I don't want to dispute with Ayatollah Khomeini, but I will point out that only one of us is dead. That thing they say about the pen being mightier than the sword? Don't mess with novelists.”

    Have you ever read a book by Salman Rushdie, well I have. It was truly one of the most pathetic attempts at literature I have ever encountered, and no it wasn’t the Satanic Verses.
    The Iranian state sponsored backlash against him was one of the most extreme examples of terrorism against a specific individual, and is to be whole heartedly deplored, but it still doesn’t change the fact that his novels are garbage.
