There Is No Free Speech In Islam- Artist Lars Vilks Attacked By Muslims At A Lecture On Free Speech

Not so ironically, Lars Vilks (the Swedish artist who drew Mohammad's head on the body of a dog back in 2007) was giving a lecture on free speech at the University of Uppsala when he was attacked by Muslims. One of whom head-butted the old man.

"He head-butted me and I fell into the wall and lost my glasses," Mr Vilks said. He added he was unharmed.

A spokesman for Uppsala police said about 20 people tried to attack Mr Vilks after interrupting his lecture, adding that the police had to intervene to stop them. Two people were detained.

So much for free speech, which just doesn't seem to be part of the Islamic vernacular. Muslims (and not all of them extremists) want this man's head on a plate for having insulted their prophet. I suppose being headbutted is a tad better than being threatened with death, and he's certainly had plenty of those threats. Blond, blue-eyed American Colleen LaRose aka "JihadJane" this past March was arrested for trying to enlist other whack jobs to do the man in.

Of course Vilks is in good company. Kurt Westergaard, the Danish cartoonist who created the Mohammad with a Turban bomb cartoon, has also been threatened with death, and attacked and almost murdered by an axe-wielding Somali extremist. And then you have Trey Parker and Matt Stone of "South Park" who were also told they could face a similar death to Dutch Filmmaker Theo Van Gogh, who was murdered by a Muslim fanatic who took offense to his film about the oppression of women in Islam.

All of these people exercising their rights to free speech, thwarted by a religion that wants to muzzle everyone.

The video below, is disturbing but shows the attack on Vilks, a 64-year-old man. This has got to stop!
