Meanwhile, this just might not be the rich tapestry (or mosaic, if you prefer) of diverse viewpoints that idealistic politicians were likely hoping for. There can be no stable society, and therefore no prosperous society, if its members do not possess the self-restraint and humility not to fly into a rage at when their sense of entitlement not to be offended is ever challenged.
A Swedish artist who angered Muslims by depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a dog was assaulted Tuesday while giving a university lecture about the limits of artistic freedom.
Vilks has faced numerous threats over his controversial drawing of Muhammad with a dog’s body, but Tuesday’s incident was the first time he has been physically assaulted.
Earlier this year U.S. investigators said Vilks was the target of an alleged murder plot involving Colleen LaRose, an American woman who dubbed herself “Jihad Jane,” and who now faces life in prison. She had pleaded not guilty…
Swedish news agency TT said police detained two people during the commotion… University officials said there had been a peaceful demonstration by Muslims outside the university before Vilks started to speak, and that about 250 people attended his lecture.
Everything about the incident screams a warning about the integration of Muslims in a Western country: the violence, the fanatical frenzy, the intolerance, the youth of these Islamic fascists, the trivial provocation and the need for so many police to protect a man’s fundamental right to speak.

“‘I am a Muslim and your laws do not apply to me, it’s just so.Â Om jag skulle acceptera era lagar dÃ¥ kan jag inte lÃ¤ngre vara MuslimÂ If I were to accept your laws then I can no longer be a Muslim‘
“Lars, the judgment-day fine ended up in a soup and tuna I do not recognize your laws, because only Sharia applies to me…”
One Swedish Muslim woman who lives just an hour-and-a-half drive from Vilks saidÂ she hopes to make good on the al Qaeda threat and slaughter Vilks like a lamb.
“I can do this in the name of Allah, and I will not fail.Â I could slaughter him in the name of Allah,” says the woman who identified herself only as Amatullah. She adds, “If I get the opportunity.”
Dressed in a black burqa from head to toe andÂ uttering death threat after death threat, the woman — a wife and mother — says she is defending her religion and her prophet if she manages to kill Vilks.
Amatullah has already been fined for issuing death threats. Still,Â she claims she will never stop taunting him.
The necessity of killing:
Here, from Sunan Abu-Dawud, a hadith collection considered canonical by Muslims, is a hadith that shows Muhammad supporting the murder of a woman by her husband, merely because she used to speak to her husband insultingly about Muhammad:
The Qur’an says that Allah curses the one who harms the Prophet in this world and He connected harm of Himself to harm of the Prophet. There is no dispute that anyone who curses Allah is killed and that his curse demands that he be categorised as an unbeliever. The judgement of the unbeliever is that he is killed.
Allah says, “Those who harm Allah and His Messenger, Allah has cursed them in this world and in the Next, and has prepared for them a humiliating punishment.” (33:57). He said something similar about those who kill the believers. Part of the curse on them in this world is that they are killed. Allah says, “Cursed they will be. Wherever they are found, they are seized and all slain.” (33: 61) He mentions the punishment of those who fight, “That is humiliation in this world for them.” (5:45) “Killing“Â (qatl) can have the meaning of “curse”. Allah says, “May the conjecturers be killed!” (51:11) and “May Allah fight them! How they are perverted!” (9:30) i.e. may Allah curse them. Â From the Islamic website Muhammad/read more….
