Wow: Rushdie Talks To Jon Stewart

This is huge (Hat tip: Allahpundit):

I spoke to Jon Stewart about Yusuf Islam's appearance. He said he was sorry it upset me, but really, it was plain that he was fine with it. Depressing.
More than depressing, it's telling. This is why these people, the people that went to that rally on Saturday cannot be allowed to run this country any longer. Stewart can make a pretty speech about civility, but the point he misses is that we have to recognize who our real enemies are. Stewart and his followers are incapable of that.
