It looks like US literati and Middle Eastern Muslim fundamentalists have have more in common than they ever knew. They’re both producing an alarming number of books with a common theme: Hate America!

See, they’re reaching out to the red states as well.

Doubleday will publish the two books together as The Al Queada Reader some time next year.
