Random House has decided to not release a novel it thought might incite Muslim violence:
The Jewel of Medina, the debut novel by journalist Sherry Jones, was due to hit shelves on 12 August.
Random House said it had been advised the book "might be offensive" to some Muslims, and "could incite acts of violence by a small, radical segment."
"We decided, after much deliberation, to postpone publication," it added.
It's a shame, but scare tactics have been working on humans since the beginning of time. Just ask President Bush.
