  3. Where are the Islamists that complain about Intolerance and Islamophobia? Shame on all Iranians for not standing up against this act of Islamic terror

  4. I love watching people on here try to do the mental gymnastics their Marxism requires🤣🤣

  5. Those spreading islamophobic words under this page are irrational, disrepectful, and contribute towards social injustice. Sleep well knowing that!

  6. May Allah guide Salman Rushdie

  7. Satanic verses is a DISGUSTING BLASPHEMOUS book. Nobody has the right to speak about anybody elses religion in such ways. SOCIETY IS SO DISRESPECTFUL

  8. The people who follow the religion are not alwyas representatives of the religion. For example, does christianty promote the kkk? Similarly Islam does not promote this, LEAVE RELIGION OUT OF IT.

  9. Abdul or Hadi whatever wants his 72 virgins lol, hope Rushdie gets well soon. I purchased Satanic Verses!

  10. it is the obvious attempt by this man, why news regarding Rushdie is not very much and it seems they are trying not to mention very much about this and says the person pleaded not guilty, unbelievable

  11. Good for sun ☀️ said come outside 🔥🔥💀👀🤡🎁👍🏽

  12. Sir Salmon Rushdie born Mumbai, India became a U.S. citizen in 2016
    and has lived in New York since 2000. He also held British citizenship.
    It was 2007 this curious adventurer was knighted for services to literature and won the Booker prize for “Midnight’s Children”.

  13. Biden will be sending Iran billions of dollars. Democrats are responsible for this stuff. ”Words are violence.” you people are pathetic.

  14. I have 3 questions to ask. Is the stabber going to heaven for this? Is he going to wine and dine at the table of God for this? Is he going to get heavenly virgins for this?

  15. Here's the thing: If the courts in the west won't bring Salmon Rushdie to justice, justice WILL be brought to him. Funny how the UK or US defend Salmon Rushdie on the premise of freedom of speech, and yet deny freedom of speech for Julian Assange or Edward Snowden? So, why should people respect the law, when the powers that be don't respect the law?…Lost you tongue?

  16. After all of these years walking around with a large price on his head you have to wonder why now was he attacked & nearly killed? There is a simple answer. The 2022 elections are coming this makes any Republican fair game to be taken out & nobody will think it was preplanned? Democrats will do anything to stop Trump for running for President in 2024?

  17. Muslims are not good people

  18. Rushdie go to Jahanum 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥👹👺
