Salmon Rushdie feels we're insensitive to the concerns of other lands

Salmon Rushdie is disappointed in President Bush because of his "unwillingness to engage with the rest of the world in a serious way," thus fanning the flames of terrorism. He feels we're offending the delicate sensitivities of other nations.

I understand that Rushdie is writing a new novel about Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. In it, he characterizes their sexual proclivities and closet pork-eating. My suggestion: in an effort to reach out to their cultures, he should send them complimentary advance copies and his home address so they can get together and "dialogue".
