Salman Rushdie speaks out after jihadist assaulted him

Veteran novelist Rushdie, author of the Satanic Verses, has spoken out during recovery following the horrific attack on him by a Muslim at a New York institute (where the staff, lest we forget, never ran any security checks):
Salman Rushdie has spoken out for the first time since a radical Islamic terror attack in New York prompted by a decades-old Iranian fatwa left him near death.

Speaking to The New Yorker for the first time since Hadi Matar, a California-born son of Lebanese migrants, stabbed him repeatedly after rushing the stage at the Chautauqua Institution in New York, Rushdie quipped that he had “been better” but that “considering what happened, I’m not so bad.”

“The big injuries are healed, essentially,” said the author of The Satanic Verses, which referenced, as The New Yorker recounts it, an incident in the Islamic Qur’an in which “in which the Prophet Muhammad… is said to have been deceived by Satan and made a proclamation venerating three goddesses [until] the Archangel Gabriel revealed this deception, and the verses were expunged from the sacred record.”

“I have feeling in my thumb and index finger and in the bottom half of the palm. I’m doing a lot of hand therapy, and I’m told that I’m doing very well,” Rushdie said.

“I’m able to get up and walk around. When I say I’m fine, I mean, there are bits of my body that need constant check ups. It was a colossal attack,” he admitted.

The India-born British-American author suggested he had “PTSD” — post-traumatic stress disorder — and revealed that he has found it “very, very difficult to write.”

“I sit down to write, and nothing happens. I write, but it’s a combination of blankness and junk, stuff that I write and that I delete the next day. I’m not out of that forest yet, really.”
That's a shame, but he's very lucky to be alive. The institute's management, as mentioned before, should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this, let's be clear. It was entirely avoidable, and the terrorist should not have been allowed to enter the building, period. We must hope, going forward, that more USA institutions will enforce security, no matter the cost, and protect critics of Islamofascism from being attacked.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent.
