Book "offending Muslims" withdrawn

Click the title for the news article. In brief, it describes the removal of a book from Serbian bookstores because the "Islamic Community in Serbia has deemed [it] offensive to Muslims..."

Also, "The Jewel of Medina was to be published in the United States last month, but the publisher there decided against selling the book, fearful of the reaction of radical Muslims."

Thank God, we don't have radical Christians in America.
