The "good" infidel beat down
Writer Ghislain Gilberti and his son were savagely attacked on Saturday by a group of men shouting “filthy white”, seemingly Islamists enraged by one of his novels, police in France have heard.What could be so horrible in that novel?
The book features a fictional jihadist group who finance their actions by means of international drug trafficking.You can't make fun of Muslims. They'll kill you!
The cherry on top:
Mr Gilberti said he suspects Muslim critics who denounce his novel as “insulting [their] cause” are unintelligent. He remarked: “The authors of the threats have not read the book, or they have just skim read it. I did not insult Islam in the book. I am rather a defender of all faiths and I combat racist acts in an anti-fascist movement.”If only the savagery of the barbarians could be limited to idiots like Gilberti and his ilk.
