Muslim world apparently not 'over' Salman Rushdie

In the wake of Queen Elizabeth's knighting of Salman Rushdie, the British author who so enraged the Muslim world over 20 years ago with his book The Satanic Verses, Pakistan's parliament is demanding that his knighthood be revoked.
Salman Rushdie should be denied his knighthood because it is an insult to “the sentiments of Muslims across the world” and is creating religious hatred, the Pakistani parliament said today.

Muslim hardliners burnt effigies of the Queen and Rushdie and shouted “Kill him, kill him”, when news of a knighthood for the author of ‘The Satanic Verses’ in the Queen’s Birthday Honours reached the Pakistani city of Multan.
This has the possibility of matching the Great Mohammed Cartoon Jihad of 2006 in scope.

Has anyone noticed the similarity between Dame Jade Goody and Sir Salmon?

Both have brought a lot of money to media interests, both get death threats, both induce burning protests in ex-colonies, both went to elite universities, both get considerable coverage of what they do in public, both have interesting "partners", both have rudely challenged "sacred cows".
