    The author is correct. It is cowardly. The publisher is a jackass.

    The Islamic terrorists have won. People are afraid to say anything against them, even when it's the truth. I hope the author self-publishes, I'll be one of the first to buy the book.

    The ironic thing is this book that may had not sold a lot of copies before will definitely do so now. So the German Publisher has accidentally just driven up demand for the book.

    Time to get a new publisher. And once the book is written, make sure your affairs are in order and specify whether you want your head buried with your body upon death.

    If the Islamics kill this writer they will only be proving all the negatives that have been said against them. When is the world going to wake up? When it's too late?

    Of course. I thought that recent court case brought a good deal of well needed attention to "honor killings."
