Swedish Muhammad cartoonist Attacked During Lecture

Head butt, broken glasses but he’s ok…

Lars Vilks, one of the Swedish cartoonists who created an international furor by depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a dog was assaulted as he delivered a university lecture on the limits of artistic freedom. Police had to use pepper spray and batons to control an angry crowd shouting “God is great” in Arabic as Mr Vilks was led away. Two people were detained. The BBC reports that:

Earlier this year, Mr Vilks was the target of an alleged murder plot involving Colleen LaRose, an American who called herself “Jihad Jane”. She has pleaded not guilty, but faces life in prison if convicted. In 2007, a group linked to al-Qaeda in Iraq offered a $100,000 (£66,000) reward for killing Mr Vilks, and a 50% bonus if he was “slaughtered like a lamb” by having his throat cut.

Like a lamb, eh? Nice. It’s early still but I’ll wait for statements by mainstream Muslim organizations who will without a doubt condemn this attack. Like totally, for sure, right?

    1) Remember, not every Muslim attacks cartoonists!
    2) Maybe if Sweden would stop colonizing Egypt and India, these root causes would be avoided.
    3) It’s sad what Zionism has done to the Jews in Sweden. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/mar/29/hate-crimes-force-jews-out-of-malmo/

    Can y’all disable those headup.com links? They make it really hard to figure out when the author of a post is linking to something that informs his post as opposed to a computer providing information it deems “relevant.”

    I can not for the life of me understand why jews are so upset about Palestinians when the jews tried to occopied a country they had no business living in. The jews say its their country, when they have no right being there. Omg, Palestinians have there country from thousands of years back.The jews have nothing but their book. They tried to take a country ages ago, but it belonged to other people. There is no country called Israel, they tried to take someone elses land. Not good enough. How can the world give the jews some one elses country and let them get away with it? There is no Israel!
