According to l’Orient Le Jour, the 24-year-old aggressor of Mr. Salman Rushdie is of Lebanese origins. How sad (https://www.lorientlejour.com/article/1308442/foie-oeil-bras-salman-rushdie-lourdement-atteint-apres-sa-violente-agression.html). Why would a young man be blinded by his narrow-mindedness to that point?
May God help, Mr. Salman Rushdie and much love to his family. Tragically, and as per his physician as reported by the Lebanese media, he will likely lose an eye, his arm nerves were cut and he was stabbed in his liver. He is now placed on an artificial respirator. All the latter because some do not know how to be tolerant in life. How to ignore a book (or any other text) they do not like. How to accept that not everyone thinks the same about any topic in life, including religion.
Always according to L’Orient Le Jour, one of the main ultra-religious Iranian media wrote: “Let us kiss the hand of the one who tore the neck of the enemy of God with a knife”. After reading the latter, does anyone still think that Islamism is good for Islam and for humanity? Whether Sunni or Shia, whichever its origins, fanaticism is incompatible with both (moderate) Islam and with humanity.
To conclude this post, one song comes to Bambi’s mind…. Yes it is Ms. Nana Mouskouri’s liberty song. She is singing it now and will follow it with a prayer in her heart for Mr. Rushdie.
