I just got this email from Paul in Sweden:
Swedish TV4 at 22:00 [4pm EDT] just had an update.
Swedish politicians are calling in extra staff to evaluate the threat against Lars Vilks. They are more concerned about the average wacko who might want to take advantage of the bounty.
Lars Vilks — who is currently abroad, and not home in Sweden — on a quick phone interview with TV reporters said 100 grand for his head does not seem right he says twice might be better. Asked if he was the least bit worried, he stated that yes he was worried but does not feel as if he has done anything wrong.
IMHO the Swedish media seem to be rallying around Lars Vilks, he has been on many programs since the first newspaper publishing of the Mohammed Rondellhund drawing.
A spokeswoman for the Swedish Muslim Council said that the death threats came at the worst time; she was appalled that the death threats came during Ramadan. The Swedish Muslim Council officially condemns the death threat against Lars Vilks.
