A Muslim peer compared Salman Rushdie to the September 11 hijackers today as the row over the author's knighthood escalated.
At Regents Park Mosque in London, protestors held up placards saying "May God curse the Queen" and one speaker told followers Tony Blair should be sent back from the Middle East "in a bag".
Interviewed in Le Figaro newspaper in France, the Labour peer Lord Ahmed of Rotherham added fuel to the row when he hit out at Mr Rushdie.
"This honour is given in recognition of services rendered to Great Britain," he said. "Salman Rushdie lives in New York. He is controversial man who has insulted Muslim people, Christians and the British. He does not deserve the honour.
"Two weeks ago Tony Blair spoke about constructing bridges with Muslims. What hypocrisy.
"What would one say if the Saudi or Afghan governments honoured the martyrs of the September 11 attacks on the United States?"

What exactly did Rushdie do wrong?
Geneticists should check Middle Eastern genes to see if there’s an “offended” gene that can be turned off.
Well the 9/11 Suicide bombers killed 3000 people...
Salman Rushdie wrote a book.
That gene becomes dominant when all your male ancestors for a couple of thousand years, married their first cousins!
These creatures must not be allowed to enter any civilized country!
Inbreeding is endemic to the Middle East. Genetic Defects are rampant.
How did Lord Ahmed obtain his peerage?
‘Just returned from a few days in London.The place was crawling with people who looked for all the world like Pakistanis.’
You can tell a Pakistani from an Indian or an Afghani or a Bangladeshi just by looking? Impressive. Most Pakistanis can’t do that. You have a gift! :)
If you put every Pakistani from every part of the UK into the city of London, they would still only represent 1 in every nine people, so perhaps ‘crawling with’ is a little bit hyperbolic. . . . . . :)
‘How did Lord Ahmed obtain his peerage?’
Born in England, educated in England. Joined Labour party. Worked hard for Labour party for many years. Got thanked with a life peerage.
I am so glad I have a plastic cover on my keys.
**Geneticists should check Middle Eastern genes to see if theres an offended gene that can be turned off.***
It’s called “inbreeding”.
