We already know that freedom of speech in not a value of Islam, and further that its followers often engage in intimidation to shut up dissenting voices. In Britain, three Muslims were sentenced to prison for firebombing an editor's house, whose company was publishing a novel (The Jewel of Medina) based on the life of one of Mohammad's wives.
A fanatic who once paraded his baby in an 'I love al-Quaeda' hat was today jailed for firebombing the home of the publisher of a novel about Mohammed.
Ali Beheshti, 41, a follower of hate cleric Abu Hamza, poured diesel through the letterbox of the Â?2.5million house and set it alight to 'punish' owner Martin Rynja.
The attack came weeks before Mr Rynja's publishing company was due to release The Jewel of Medina, a fictional account of the Prophet's child bride.
