Toulouse, France - A Toulouse, France, high school teacher who criticized Islam has gone into hiding after receiving death threats.  In his commentary Robert Redeker characterized Mohammed as “a merciless warlord, a looter, a mass-murderer of Jews and a polygamist.” He said the Koran was “a book of incredible violence.”  Redeker, 52, who teaches philosophy, and his family went into hiding under police protection after receiving death threats by phone, e-mail and online.  French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin said the threats were not acceptable, saying a person “has the right to express his views freely, while respecting others, of course.”
