Publisher Firebombed

A London publisher, Gibson Square, was firebombed recently. It is suspected that this is because the company is publishing "The Jewel Of Medina" by Sherry Jones. The book is about the prophet Muhammad and his bride, Aisha. Some arrests were made, and the author reacts here to the firebombing. Years ago, "The Satanic Verses" by Salman Rushdie caused a similar stir.
