Salman Rushdie: It's Mistake for Obama Not to Call It 'Islamic Terrorism'
by Lauretta Brown
Author Salman Rushdie--against whom Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini issued a death fatwa in 1989 because of his book "The Satanic Verses"--says that it is a miskake for President Barack Obama not to use the term "Islamic terrorism."
"It's a mistake that the president is making to not use the term Islamic terrorism," Rushdie said Wednesday during a question-and-answer session hosted by New York University's Washington, D.C. Academic Center.
Rushdie was responding to a question from an audience member on whether he had changed his views since he had written a 2001 New York Times opinion piece entitled Yes, This Is About Islam.
