Author Censored Over Fears Of Muslim Violence

Apparently Islam doesn't need to control our country in order to exert it's stifling influence:
Publisher Random House has pulled a novel about the Prophet Mohammed's child bride, fearing it could "incite acts of violence."

"The Jewel of Medina," a debut novel by journalist Sherry Jones, 46, was due to be published on August 12 by Random House, a unit of Bertelsmann AG, and an eight-city publicity tour had been scheduled, Jones told Reuters on Thursday.

The novel traces the life of A'isha from her engagement to Mohammed, when she was six, until the prophet's death. Jones said that she was shocked to learn in May, that publication would be postponed indefinitely.
What an absolutely disgusting and shameful decision. Way to go Random House, your testicles will kept safe in an undisclosed location. As soon as Ms. Jones finds another publisher, there will be a prominent link to her book on this blog. You can already find it for order on Amazon - not sure if they'll keep the link up.
