Swedish cartoonist headbutted by Muslim extremists

What an ugly scene. Cartoonist Lars Vilks, who has drawn the Prophet Muhammed  as a dog, spoke at Sweden’s Uppsala University. Here’s the video of Vilks being assaulted by Muslim protesters screaming “Allahu Akbar (God is great)!”

Uppsala University said Vilks had shown a “provocative film with sexual content”. One wonders what constitutes provocative sexual content in sexually liberated Sweden. One also wonders why the university seemed more concerned about “provocative” content than about guest speakers being assaulted by mobs. If a Muslim speaker had been assaulted by Jews outraged over provocative content, the UN and Human Rights Watch would have swooped in like hawks.

An Israeli diplomat speaking at a British university had to be rescued by police from demonstrators. Jewish students at California universities warn of a climate of threats and intimidation. Today it’s Israel, or daring to draw the Prophet  Muhammed as a canine. Tomorrow the provocation will be men and women in the same gym class.  And the usual apologists will blame Israeli settlements or Western colonialism or some other guilt trip.  The violence and intimidation will continue because it works.

  1. “Allahu Akbar” does not mean “God is Great” rather, it means “Allah is Great.”
