Iraqi novelist assassinated after criticizing Iran’s Islamic revolution

The well-known Iraqi novelist Ala Mashzoub was gunned down “by a group of armed men” after recently publishing an article which criticized “the Islamic republic revolution in Iran, which is being celebrated now on its 40th anniversary.”

The assassination sparked anger. Activists wrote that “we continue to write about everything that disturbs the sacred ignorance.”

Yet the West is protecting the “sacred ignorance” (supported by Sharia) by not standing firmly for its own principle of free speech. Meanwhile, in Islamic states, people are getting murdered for “crimes” such as like apostasy and blasphemy, and offense against Islam and its revered leaders.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
