Ianus: "A Moslem from Australia has burnt 1200 books by Robert Spencer and threatens the author with a violent death."

I'd like to think it was true simply because of how it demonstrates to what idiotic extent such fanatics go to. And also because of the massive waste of money it would have been for him. The cheapest I can find 'Did Mohammed exist' is $17.27 on Amazon.

So 1200 copies is $20,724. And anyone buying such a large number of copies of a single title like that would have raised questions somewhere along the line and drawn attention to themselves. Are any muslims so stupid? Ok, I take it back - it could well have happened.
