TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- A semi-official religious foundation in Iran has increased a reward it had offered for the killing of British author Salman Rushdie to $3.3 million from $2.8 million, a newspaper reported, days after protests coursed through the Muslim world over alleged insults to the Prophet Muhammad.
Hardline Jomhoori Eslami daily and other newspapers reported on Sunday that the move appeared to be linked to protests over an amateurish anti-Islam film, which crowds in some 20 countries said drove them to defend their faith - in some cases by attacking American embassies.

They also bring up this Rushdie story.
Seems the erosion of our free speech is emboldening them.
For those FReepers who may be too young to remember the “Satanic Verses” story:
Maybe they'll contract the LA County Sheriff's office to do the hit and then claim the cash.
Some of them over at DU today are also starting to remember again that Obama unilaterally started the war in Libya and Egypt. There used to be a lot more of those over there before it got hushed-hushed up.
Wasn’t he married to someone gorgeous?..which I could never understand..
Don’t know who he’s married to, now. Been married 4 times.
Wow. Inflation’s everywhere these days.
So what. I will offer a 1 cent reward to have the slime Ayatollah Hassan Saneii meet the same fate that he is pushing. I will even throw in a few extra slabs of bacon just to make it worthwhile.
Hey Ahmanutjob, make it five million and you got a deal.
That's odd. Usually democrats love the idea of destroying free speech rights... starting with PC rules - the verbal equivalent of 'book burning-lite'...
Ayatollah Hassan Sanei, head of a powerful state foundation providing relief to the poor, said the film would never have been made if the order to execute Rushdie, issued by the late Iranian spiritual leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, had been carried out.
Increase the bounty on Rushdie, that viciously smarmy, spiteful, America-hating scum?
Tell me where to send the check.
This is good:

Stupid-assed, troglodyte, cave-dwellers are still at it, after 23yrs.
Insult Jesus, nothing happens.
Insult mo-ham-head, you get a body count.
