Some more reactions by people who worked in comics to the attack on Salman Rushdie

Here's at least 2 more examples of people who've worked in comics responding to the horrifying attempted murder of Salman Rushdie at an institution near Buffalo, New York, which he's been fortunate to survive. First is G. Willow Wilson: This is quite rich coming from somebody who took the role of a propagandist in favor of Islam (and even downplayed Iran's tyranny) when she wrote the Muslim Ms. Marvel book in the past decade. Now, she has the gall to address an issue she's unqualified for commenting on, where she'll doubtless claim the Religion of Peace was just "hijacked". If there's anybody whose word shouldn't be taken at face value on topics like these, it's Wilson, whose books should be boycotted.

The second is Neil Gaiman, the UK-born scribe who penned the 1989-96 take on Sandman: Well I think it's a good thing Gaiman's speaking Rushdie's favor. But, is he going to develop any books of his own employing themes similar to what the Satanic Verses contains? Let us be perfectly clear. If you're not willing to exercise your own free speech rights in protest of the tragedy Rushdie suffered through, your words ring hollow, and you're not accomplishing anything or doing justice for the victims of Islamic jihadism. This cowardice has practically led to the modern state of censorship that's affected much of the world, and while you may see some of these would-be auteurs recommending the books that started it all, they do not seem even remotely interested in emulating any of the ingredients the book contains, no matter what they say in their alleged solidarity with the victim of the horrifying jihadist crime.

And does Gaiman also condemn the threats that were made against J.K. Rowling? It should be noted that earlier, Gaiman signaled support for anti-Israeli propaganda, and in doing so, was letting Islamofascism - the very ideology Rushdie fell victim to - off the hook. Such leniency will not solve the issue, and Gaiman decidedly owes an apology for going by double-standards.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • 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. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
