This obvious rule, but apparently, has been suspended about Salman Rushdie; Because he has been allowed to insult the faith of hundreds of millions of Muslims under the protection of the Queen of England's court and other western powers and of course the Israeli regime, and he has disrespected and insulted their certain religious principles. Text : Andrew Wiley; Salman Rushdie s program director says that he is able to speak after coming off the ventilator.   He had previously said that Salman Rushdie is expected to lose one of his eyes, the nerve of one of his arms is damaged and his liver is stabbed.   Salman Rushdie, the 75-year-old author of the book "The Satanic Verses" was attacked moments before he was to begin his speech at an institution in the city of Chataqua in the western state of New York.   Police say Hadi Matar; a Lebanese citizen of American origin has been arrested as a suspect. Like any other participant, he had gone to the lecture hall and obtained permission to enter.   According to the police, the suspect jumped on the stage and attacked Salman Rushdie’s neck and stomach at least once.   The attack on Salman Rushdie has faced widespread reactions in America and the world. Many political leaders and cultural figures of the West have praised him as a writer who used his "right to freedom of expression".   According to them, writing the book of satanic verses was an obvious act of using the right of freedom of expression of an author. In the meantime, according to Salman Rushdie s supporters, attacking, defaming and insulting the religious beliefs of one and a half billion people by a famous and courtly author is never considered a violation of freedom; because he is the only one who has the right to enjoy freedom of speech; But another one and a half billion people, because they do not want to accept the ideology of liberalism and serve the interests of the West and Israel like Salman Rushdie and take a stand against Islam, the basic principles of their faith and belief must be attacked and insulted in the worst possible way.   This is despite the fact that based on a very simple definition, freedom is considered freedom as long as it does not take away the freedom of others. This obvious rule, but apparently, has been suspended about Salman Rushdie; Because he has been allowed to insult the faith of hundreds of millions of Muslims under the protection of the Queen of England s court and other western powers and of course the Israeli regime, and he has disrespected and insulted their certain religious principles.   In the wake of the recent event, there is a strong possibility that Hadi Matar; The Muslim attacker who stabbed the author of the Satanic Verses book with a knife will be presented as a "terrorist" and tried.   In the American judicial justice system, there is never a place for the complaint of hundreds of millions of people whose feelings were hurt as a result of the publication of Salman Rushdie s insulting book; Because according to the double standard of liberal democracy, a court writer has the right to unilaterally exercise his "right to freedom of speech", even if this "right" overrides the clear rights of hundreds of millions of other people to respect the sacred and freedom of their beliefs in a particular religion.   In this way, what has happened in America, as the dominant media and propaganda current of the West tells, will be in the favor of Salman Rushdie and the loss of the young Muslim of Lebanese origin who targeted him; But it is expected that this event will once again convey this informative and awakening message to the Muslim youth all over the world that their religion is mocked by whom and why, what governments and organizations for what reasons and motives. They hire people to implement cultural NATO projects for Islam phobia and anti-Islamism.   The story of the attack on Salman Rushdie and the known spectrum of his supporters simply answers this not so complicated ambiguity and challenges the double and false standards of the West in the field of freedom of speech and religious freedom.   With this account, young Muslims who have their hearts in their religion and believe in the sanctity of the Quran and the great Prophet of Islam, in addition to their love and faith towards their holy things, they should also recognize the enemies of Islam, the Quran and the Prophet as good and protect themselves for Prepare confrontation with cultural NATO and ideological confrontation with the West, Zionism and other political and intellectual currents opposed to Islam.   Another message of this event for the Muslims of the world is the message of unity and integration. Regardless of who targeted Salman Rushdie, this event once again shows that the common sacredness of all Muslims is the target of the anti-Islamic projects of Zionism and cultural NATO; Therefore, Muslims need to put aside their differences and strengthen and develop unity and solidarity more than ever before in order to deal with this invading wave.
