Muhammad Cartoonist Attacked


According to a report from Radio Free Europe, Lars Vilks, a Swedish cartoonist whose sketch of Muhammad angred many Muslims around the world, was head-butted this week while giving a lecture about freedom of speech at a university near Stockholm. A mob of 20 people tried to attack him.

Vilks claims he has received death threats since publishing the cartoon. I must admit, I admire the man’s courage. It takes guts to make these kinds of public appearances.
