The Jewel of Medina

Those of you not following the events of Sherry Jones, perhaps it's time to jump on the bandwagon? Her first book, a novel about one of Muhammad's wives has been dropped by Random House because they fear retaliation from terrorist. Haven't we lost if we fear our enemies? How is it someone can publish a book deemed by Christians as blasphemous, but they cannot publish a book like this?

"Without free speech no search for truth is possible... no discovery of truth is useful... Better a thousandfold abuse of free speech than denial of free speech. The abuse dies in a day, but the denial slays the life of the people, and entombs the hope of the race." -Charles Bradlaugh

Of course, Bradlaugh would say that... he was an atheist and prized rationality.
