In 1988, Salman Rushdie published his infamous book, “The Satanic Verses.” Soon, he was receiving death threats from Muslims around the world, and the Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa calling for his assassination. On August 12, 2022, a man named Hadi Matar brutally attacked Rushdie and stabbed him repeatedly. Why was Rushdie attacked for a book he wrote more than three decades ago? Because another book, written 14 centuries ago, called for violence against the enemies of Islam. David Wood discusses the issue.
