The video below shows Tuesday’s attack on Lars Vilks from a vantage point in the middle of the audience. Pay close attention to the behavior of the culture enrichers towards a young man sitting by himself in the audience.
According to the notes accompanying the video:
A public lecture at Uppsala University by Lars Vilks ends in catastrophe as a gang of muslim youngsters attack him.
This is the aftermath of the event, Vilks has just been rushed off stage by his bodyguards and the muslim crowd is extatic.
The guy in white at the end of the clip gets spitted on several times. Twice in this clip alone. This is because he was the only one to react against the muslims, telling them to sit down and calm down.
The significant portion of the video begins at about 2:00:
At the Trykkefrihedsselskabet website, Lars Hedegaard, the President of the Danish Free Press Society, writes about his recent visit with Lars Vilks at the artist’s home in Sweden:
A Visit with a Marked Man
This can’t be it!
After leaving Copenhagen early Saturday morning, traveling north to Elsinore, crossing the ferry to Sweden and continuing north along the coast of Scania, we arrive at a shack that would have caused embarrassment in the hillbilly country of West Virginia or along Tobacco Road.
Can this dilapidated edifice really be the home of the world-famous Swedish artist Lars Vilks — the man whose drawing of a bewildered prophet in a traffic circle caused so much rage that Jihad Jane wanted to come all the way from America to kill him and long-bearded mullahs to offer $150,000 to anyone who would cut his throat?
But sure enough, we have come to the right place and are soon greeted by Vilks, who has observed our arrival from a distance.

Once the upholders of freedom and Western values used to live in places like Blenheim Castle. Modern-day Churchills have to make due with less, but their courage and achievements in standing up for free speech and all that is right are in no way inferior to those of the great men and women of the past.
A few days prior to our visit, the Free Press Society had put 1000 copies of the Mohound picture up for sale and our small delegation has brought them along for Vilks to number and sign.
Before settling down to the job, the artist tells us that he is in fine spirit. He regrets nothing and the world shall expect no retractions or apologies from him.
Vilks has sensed a change in Swedish society since the Prophet in the Traffic Circle first came out in 2007. To be sure he gets threatening phone calls but tends not to take them seriously. He is still persona non grataamong the Swedish media and intellectual elites, who hate him for having offended tender Muslim sensibilities, but he receives a lot of support from ordinary Swedish citizens.
