Diana West has aÂ Lars Update:
He is well, he is in an undisclosed location, he is back to work. Not bad for a 70-year-old man who was fired on “from less than a yard” away” while collecting a (phony) package delivered to his home. Far from stopping Lars, the gunfire triggered Lars’s life-saving right hook to the gunman’s face … (see column below for details). I asked Lars yesterday if he knew more about his 25-year-old assailant. He wrote: “He is an immigrant from a Muslim country – Arabian or Pakistani. There is no doubt. You may quote me.”
The gunman is also half a century younger than Lars. It suddenly struck me, as I reflected on the violence that Islam has brought into Western society: The heroes of the Danish counter-jihad areÂ elderly men — old Vikings, it turns out, but “senior citizens” by any measure. Westergaard, Hedegaard, Sweden’s Lars Vilks (b. 1946), too, an artist whose life is also imperiled by Muslims for his drawings and beliefs — are all men of advanced years. They are also all men of the pen and paint set.
Is it right to let them fight it out alone?
“Hedegaard heads the International Free Press Society, a group that claims press freedom is under threat from Islam.”
What does it take to prove it – a more effective assassin?
