How can murder be justified

Reader comment on item: Salman Rushdie, Man of the Left
in response to reader comment: Rushdie is a failed academic

Submitted by B. Williame (Belgium), Apr 10, 2008 at 05:04

You feel that his book is but a bunch of lies. I can not dicuss that with you as I've never read it.

what concerns me more is your last words:

"I am less concerned about people killing Rushdie than people killing inaccurate literature. May sanity prevail, especially on this web site."

While some might, not certain but possibly imprison people who are stupid enough to question the holocaust. They do not bring them to death.

So I also hope sanity may prevail but then from an other point of view. No person should be brought to death for only his written words.
