Dear RW,

Rushdie has actually talked like a Muslim when it comes to Quran.

You know Muslims have always believed that both Old and New Testaments have been manipulated by Jews and Christians and Quran can never be manipulated since it is the direct word of God.

Now since the testaments are mainly stories/fables then surely they are open to manipulation and therefore they can never be true words of God.

By highlighting Rushdie Dr. Pipes have offered victory to the Islamists who claim that Quran is the real book of God and both the testaments are falsified and doctored documents.

I wonder what do you think about it?

Do you feel Rushdie actually a manchurian candidate of Islam who has damaged the Bibles ?
