This was good news for all you freedom of speech lovers but really crappy news for all you opponents of basic human rights.
If you don't remember or haven't seen the two videos "How is Islam Not Already Controlling the USA Parts 1 and 2" then might I suggest you have a quick peek at them before continuing with this one?

On the choice of Gibson Square Natasha Kern, Sherry Jones's agent says, 'In selecting a publisher we wanted a house that would commit to this novel and to Sherry's further career, as well as an editor and publisher who are passionate about bringing The Jewel of Medina to widest possible group of readers. We wanted to publish this book as quickly as possible so that all those who are interested can read the book and discover what a wonderful and inspiring love story Sherry has written. It was crucially important that the publisher would have industry-leading distribution in Britain, which Gibson Square has. And it was also important that it had an excellent track record on handling books in a good way that were provocative and had achieved some degree of controversy beyond the publishing community. We are excited to have found a publisher with exactly this experience and a commitment to partner with their writers to achieve all that is possible for a book.'
