As you suspected all along, Salman Rushdie a complete a-hole (bumped: Video added)
Dislike of Salman Rushdie: The one thing we can all agree on!
Interestingly, Rushdie doesn’t object to ALL “provocative” low budget movies with irrational, violent Muslims characters, and he even presumed the average person was smart enough to tell fact from fiction…
Even though the $500,000 film was marketed as a satire, International Guerillas was initally banned in Britain, where Rushdie was facing death threats. The author later convinced the British Board of Film Classification to overturn the ban, on the assumption that audiences would recognize that he was not a Bond villain who routinely executed people with sabers.
