Victor Hugo Islamified?

According to the Turkish Daily there has been a little bit of uproar that a publishing house reponsible for prodocuing books for state schools inserts Islamist ideology into books which include Victor Hugo's, Les Miserables. Characters in Pinnochio and Heidi were made to appear Islamic, and Aramis in Alexander Dumas' Three Musketeers converts to Islam.

Who's for a rewrite of 'The 1001 Nights'?

It's called reinforcing the message.

I loved The 1001 Nights, though it was a long time ago I read it in rather romantic circumstances.
