London publisher firebombed

Here's an unsettling story from The Guardian about an attack on the London home of a publisher of a controversial novel about the child bride of the Prophet Muhammad by American author Sherry Jones.

The book, entitled The Jewel of Medina, was originally to be published by Random House, which bailed out when faced with threats by extremists.

Unsettling indeed. Unfortunately, it is the actions of a few extremists that give entire religions a bad name. This doesn't improve my opinion of Islam. At the least extremist Christians haven't firebombed any publishers. Right??

can't fight this feeling anymore

No, just women's clinics.

No, but fundamentalist Christians here have assassinated doctors...set off bombs at the Olympics...And those acts do not really reflect most Christians even those who have views that might be extreme.
