Lars Vilks is a cartoonist who drew Mohammed as a dog. This sort of thing really upsets the radical Islamists — to the point where there was a plot to murder him. Therefore, let us look at the cartoon, to see what offended them so:
You may have read that Vilks was recently attacked while giving a university lecture with an admittedly provocative film that, as Ace explains, “juxtaposed pictures of Mohammad (?) and praying Muslims with gay fetish shots.” Being a tolerant community committed to free speech, the university shut down the lecture and told him never to return. Today, Hot Air links the full video of the incident:
Allahpundit provides the commentary:
Don’t skip it. Force yourself through it, because it happens to be one of the most genuinely depressing clips ever posted on Hot Air. Everything about this is an utter, unmitigated disgrace — the attack on Vilks, the excruciating passivity of most of the crowd, the sheer thuggery of these shrieking, lunatic, barbarian bastards, and of course the killer moment at around 8:45 when they win.
And when they win, the announcer says the words that form the post title: “Due to Security Reasons, We Will Stop.”
As Mark Goldblatt, quoted by Allah, says:
Since 2001, many Americans have asked how they can contribute in a direct way to the war against totalitarian Islam. Now we have an answer. If it’s legal, and likely to offend the radicals, just do it. That seems straightforward enough. But how many of us will have the nerve to stand up to a million or so Muslim dirtbags, and to scores of millions, perhaps hundreds of millions, of their fellow travelers and psychic enablers, and say in unison, “You want to kill the Enlightenment, you’re going to have to come through me.”
