Nuray, You are wrong , Salman Rushdie"s book "Satanic Verses" is a fiction and has nothing to do with the actual incident of satanic verses.

The incident was recorded in Ishaq's Sirat e rsaulullah, so it is known since Prophet's Mecca days, not 1100 years you said.
You have no problem in believeing that Mohammed flew billions of miles on a winged horse to see hell and heaven, his talking daily to angels, his attacking innocent communities,killing them and sharing their unfortunate women among his jihadis and raping them.

You have no problem on the followinh hadiths and verses:

Bukhari:V4B52N220 "Allah's Apostle said, ‘I have been made victorious with terror.'"

SAHIH BUKHARI, VOL 4 CHAPTER 88
Narrated Ibn 'Umar: The Prophet said, "MY LIVELIHOOD IS UNDER THE SHADE OF MY SPEAR, FROM WAR BOOTY, AND HE WHO DISOBEYS MY ORDERS WILL BE HUMILIATED BY PAYING JIZYA TAX."

Qur'an 8:12 "I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle."
Qur'an 8:57 "If you gain mastery over them in battle, inflict such a defeat as would terrorize them, so that they would learn a lesson and be warned."
Qur'an 8:67 "It is not fitting for any prophet to have prisoners until he has made a great slaughtered in the land."

But You have problem believing this little Satanic verses incident. What is the big deal?
The following aya clearly indicates that Mohammed did say what Satan put on his lips and later retracted confirming the incident of Satanic Verses.

We have sent no apostle, or prophet, before thee, but, when he read, Satan suggested [some error] in his reading.
