Saifullah, which literally means “sword of Islam,” is the honor that is being bestowed upon the notorious figurehead of the Al Qaeda organization.  This new development is a direct reaction to the recent British Knighthood of Salman Rushdie.

Some Muslims view the honor of knighthood for the author to be offensive, given the controversial book that Rushdie wrote, the Satanic Verses.  I’m not really sure what to say about this but… here’s a few links.

Thanks to Jen!
