'The attacks against me are working': Lars Vilks

The strategy of attacks and intimidation employed by critics of Lars Vilks is working, argues controversial Swedish artist, who has seen his lecturing activities dry up over organizers fears of riots and being labelled as "racist". 

Just as a circle has no end, the same fate seems to have hit the national scourge which is the roundabout dog. It keeps coming back as if it was today’s news. Recently, another intermezzo occurred at Karlstad University where my lecture was interrupted by a loud group of egg throwers. The reaction kicked off when I showed one of my pictures from 2006, meant as a comment on the then on-going Danish caricature battle. The image depicts the prophet and HC Andersen on a joint field trip to the Carlsberg brewery. The image is impossible to publish in the conventional media but can be seen here. The same picture was exhibited in Norway without causing a stir. However, it was mostly a coincidence that the attack was staged in Karlstad as the instigators were just waiting for a convenient opportunity. You might wonder who they were. In the media they were described as “a group from the audience” and all you can gather from that description is that they weren’t neo-Nazis because that group is always identified in media reports. My speech was about freedom of expression and the development of the roundabout dog story. It had a special connection to Karlstad as the whole journey began in the little community of Tällerud where the sketches were meant to have been exhibited in 2007. The organizers of the recent event, which took place on February 21st, was the university's association of international affairs (Utrikespolitiska föreningen), a version of which exists at many universities. They invite speakers representing different sides of the public debate on a regular basis. That I had been invited displeased the Islamic Culture Association (Islamiska kulturföreningen) and the Karlstad Young Muslims (Unga muslimer i Karlstad) who urged to a boycott of my speech with the motivation: ”Lars Vilks is a controversial individual who is abusing the freedom of expression that we all enjoy and using it to provoke in such a way that it creates tension between different societal groups. We are worried that the association of international affairs in Karlstad, in cooperation with Karlstad University, has chosen to invite him to speak about the boundaries of freedom of expression after his previous actions and provocation against Muslims through his caricature.” For these organizations, the outer limit of freedom of expression exists at the point where symbols of the Islamic religion are called into question. One has to admit that firing on all cylinders has proved efficient. Because the winners, at least in the short term, are the egg throwers. It may seem like a victory that the lecture could continue after the rabble-rousers had been removed but it was a Pyrrhic victory. Respectable institutions and representatives will dissociate themselves from those types of methods but not much more than that. And which organizations will want to arrange lectures that risk ending in an uproar and furthermore require significant security measures? Add to this the demand from regular Muslim associations and their supporters that they be “respected” on their own terms. The strategy is a winning one. Images of the prophet have long been officially prohibited and the racist label hovers over those who want to debate the situation. It is therefore rather infrequently that I have the opportunity to appear in public and explain things from my perspective. Further, this double fear (risk of riots + possible racist label) has led to a significant reduction in even my regular lecturing schedule. During the discussion after the recent speech in Karlstad, one Muslim in the audience voiced the recurring opinion that my sketches were badly made. He ended his contribution by saying that his children could have done a better job, then got up and left. Technique and style can’t be completely irrelevant as it is often brought up in discussion. However, I have been accommodating in this issue and can offer a large selection of styles and variations. Admittedly, it is a question of the same image of the roundabout dog which has been adapted in different ways. These pictures are also impossible to publish in conventional media but may be seen here.

Another example of "cultural terrorism" by the religion of peace and their liberal allies.

 The arguement FOR islam consists of insults, violence and accusations of racism. Only islam could find a negative  becomes a positive.

Unfortunately, there is an inescapable logic behind Breveik style extremism, which is the same logic which led to the IRA extremism.  

Its quite clear that those who pursue peaceful democratic means of making a statement, will be shut up by a variety of low key Mafia style interventions.  Our current society is too stupid to realise that the only way to deal with those threats to our freedom, is to come down hard on the first one that appears - otherwise they just get bolder and stronger, till eventually they've taken over the whole neighbourhood, and silenced all opposing voices.

That's what the Leftist loons want, and it looks like that's what they're going to get.

Looks like there was an attempt to kill Lars Vilks.

Police have cordoned off a large area in Malmo after a suspected attack attempts against artist Lars Vilks.
A man came into the gallery Rönnquist & Quist with a weapon.
- It looks like an old machine gun, says gallery owner Henry Rönnquist.
A man walked into the gallery Rönnquist & Quist with a red bag in hand - and said he wanted to show his art.
- Those who take care of Lars Vilks said he may show outside bag. When he opened the bag and the bag was there any kind of firearm. It looks like an old machine gun, says gallery owner Henry Rönnquist.
The guards pulled a gun
Lars Vilks bodyguards then drew guns and forced the man on the street.
The man was arrested on the spot.
- He is suspected of illegal possession of weapons, then the investigation may show what is the type of weapon and if there is something else behind it, says Magnus Lefevre, duty officer at Malmö police.
Suspected bomb outside the gallery
Now a large area cordoned off around the gallery. The red bag is left on a table outside the gallery - the police suspect that it might contain a bomb.
- We can not exclude that it is a dangerous item so therefore we should let the bomb technician look at it, says Magnus Lefevre.
As soon as the man arrested was taken Vilks from the place of his bodyguards. He should have survived unscathed.
Much is still unclear about what the man really wanted to do in the gallery.
- The entire intersection is blocked. There are police cars here and there. I do not know if this was directed at the gallery, against me or against Vilks. I am of course shocked and shaken by this, says gallery owner Henry Rönnquist.

Lars Vilks has been under threat since his controversial roundabout published a few years ago.

Mohammed’s assassination squad lives on and on and on.  So it was from the beginning. for the  last 1400 years, and ever shall be?

Abu’Afak was reputed to be over one hundred years old, and had dared to criticise in verse Mohammed’s killing of another of his opponents.  Mohammed asked his men, ‘Who will deal with this rascal for me?’  He found a ready volunteer in a young Muslim named Salim bin ‘Umayr, who dispatched the old poet as he lay sleeping.

Ibn Ishq 675

Another poet, ‘Asma bint Marwan wrote against this assassination.  Mohammed then looked for a volunteer to kill her: ‘Who will rid me of Marwan’s daughter?’  A Muslim named ‘Umayr bin ‘Adiy al-Khatmi took the job, and killed her along with her unborn child that very night.  But after the deed was done ‘Umayr began to worry that perhaps hehad committed a grave sin.  Mohammed reassured him: ‘You have helped God and His apostle, O ‘Umayr!’  But would he (‘Umayr) incur punishment?  Mohammed said: ‘Two goats won’t butt their heads about her.’

Ibn Ishq 676

Then he (Kab bin al-Ashraf) composed amatory verses of an insulting nature about the Muslim women.  The Apostle said…’Who will rid me of Ibnul-Ashraf?’  Muhammad bin Maslama, brother of the Bani Addu’l-Ashhal, said, ‘I will deal with him for you, O Apostle of God, I will kill him.’  ‘Do so if you can.’… ‘All that is incumbent on you is that you should try… ‘ He (Muhammad bin Maslama) said, ‘O Apostle of God, we shall have to tell lies.’  He (Mohammed, the founder of Islam) answered, ‘Say what you like, for you are free in the matter.’

Sira 367

Lars Vilks bodyguards then drew guns and forced the man on the street.

What happens to anyone else who wants to voice the tiniest criticism of the Fascist Left or of Muslim Racism, who hasn't got their own personal armed bodyguards?  Does anyone even know what Free Speech is any more?

The link linx to an article that states the whole thing was a missunderstanding

If Muslims allow the open criticism of Islam they will be contributing, as they see it, to the the death of Islam. That's why they won't allow it.

Muslims know as much as us 'Islamophobes' that Islam cannot withstand criticism. Hence the violence and the jihad against free speech.

It looks like they have replaced the text of the original article.  

"But it was all a misunderstanding."

Does not appear in the text which I copied and pasted yesterday, but it is there today.

You think they would simply add an "update" after the original article.  But no, they simply re-wrote it, and left no indication that they did so.

Whether or not it was a misunderstanding, it shows the state of terror/alarm that people like Lars Vilks must live with.

It always is Shiv.

How about this for a mis understanding. The only thing missing from this story is the bit where the newly 'converted'  lucy moves to Iran after going on the Hajj.

She says she has been banned from the Broad Street mosque by thoughtless worshippers who were offended by her gender.  She said: "The way they treated me was disgusting.
"They asked me questions about my bra cup size, asked about my Adam's apple, about my period and asked to see my birth certificate"

Those seem like perfectly reasonable questions to me, in the circumstances.  Perhaps "she" is thinking like a man? Then how about this bit of law breaking:

Defiant Lucy - who used to be a TA private called Laurens - has become the second wife of a devout Muslim.

Will the Cameron Coward take any action?  Not if he knows what's good for him!  Better to fuss about Syria and Gay Marriage.

That's what happens when all you hear is how islam is the 'religion of peace'. People start getting all confused.

As for the law taking any action. We know the answer to that one.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
