Reader comment on item: Salman Rushdie Was Never Safe

Submitted by David (United States), Aug 19, 2022 at 20:20

More to the point, this WH has never been prepared to deal with the threat of a nuclear Iran. Its ambition has always been to appease the Ayatollahs, and Israel's current government has been pathetically blind and asleep on the watch. Even this week, it could have taken advantage of the attack on Mr. Rushdie to highlight the danger of giving nuclear weapons, in staggered fashion, to a regime that perpetrates attempted murder of American citizens, on American soil.

Instead its limp-kneed PM contented himself with a pathetic repetition of the Biden administration's invocation of the importance of free speech. And the same PM somehow still pleads, privately, for the administration not to sign a nuclear agreement with the Iranians, all the while saying and doing almost nothing of consequence to stop them. Such efforts seem doomed to fail, and it is time for people who care to wake up.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Yes, and free speech misses the point. It's about Islamic supremacism.
