On Friday's episode of Rebel Roundup, David Menzies was joined by Raheel Raza, chairman of the Rebel News advisory board, to discuss the attack on author Salman Rushdie. 

For those who embrace freedom, August 12 was a shocking day indeed. A 24-year-old hooligan attempted to murder Rushdie at a public event in New York. But why? Perhaps most disturbing is the young age of Rushdie's attacker, who wasn't even alive when the original firestorm began over Rushdie's book, The Satanic Verses

"It is shocking of course, but not entirely surprising," said Raheel. "Since 9/11 we have been talking and warning about the dangers of brainwashing young people... so it tells you of the level of radicalization, that a young man, born in the USA, went for a visit to Lebanon and according to his own mother, came back radicalized."

"The question that we have to ask is... how many more Hadi Matars are there that we don't know about?"
