Assassination Attempt on Lars Vilks

Update 2/15/2015 12:15am

Live-blogging Copenhagen has closed; I’m going to bed.

The final bit of information I got (via Vlad) was from Twitter:

Police in Copenhagen have shot a man near Nørrebro train station; condition of man unknown, police say.

We’ll see what develops by the morning. You night owls and Europeans will know it before I do.

Update 10:25pm EST: Via Steen, the man shot in the head near the synagogue has died (Sveriges Radio, in Swedish).

Update 9:37pm EST: Gateway Pundit has lots of of links, photos, and video.

Update 8:50pm EST: Danish police say they have pretty much every available person called in and active. Live coverage indicates that night clubs are being evacuated.

Update 8:33pm EST: Here’s an English language link.

Update 8:18pm EST: Police are searching parks in central Copenhagen to find the attacker.

Update 7:58pm EST: Message from a Danish contact: There have been 2 attacks in Copenhagen this evening. My friend tells me that almost the whole of Copenhagen is shut down. I admit to receiving secondhand knowledge as I don’t have a TV.

Update 7:52pm EST: Unconfirmed: The Danish army seems to be in central Copenhagen.

Update 7:42pm EST:

In contrast to the shooting at the Vilks event, this is the core of Copenhagen. The very center.

Police with machine guns are everywhere. They’re all-in now.

Helicopters are trying to locate the perpetrator.

One person hit in the head. One policeman hit in the arm, one in the leg.

Update 7:39pm: Live feed from the synagogue shootings

Nørreport station is evacuated, trains aren’t stopping there for the time being.

The shooter is still at large, police say “Central Copenhagen cannot be considered safe.”

Update: 7:35pm EST: A Danish contact writes:

I just got a messag from [name] and he writes: 1 person shot in the head and 2 police officers right by a Jewish syagogue!!! Right by Nørreport Station, our main S-train hub.

Update 7:19pm EST: Danish Police: Shots Fired at Copenhagen Synagogue

Danish police are reporting that shots have been fired at a synagogue in Copenhagen.

No further details are available at present.

Update from Fjordman: Jyllands-Posten is now also stating that one civilian was killed, but no name is given.

Update 2: The Daily Mail has the story, with more photos and details. A Femen activist was one of the featured speakers.

Update 3, from Fjordman: The three policemen are not mortally wounded, according to the MSM.

Update, 6.18pm: The civilian killed in Saturday’s shooting attack was a 40-year-old Danish citizen, police have said. Police added that they have founded the suspected getaway vehicle but two suspects are still at large.

Update, 6.08pm: Reports of up to 200 shots fired

The French ambassdor to Denmark told AFP from inside the venue that shots rang out in the midst of a debate on Islam and free speech in Copenhagen.

“They fired on us from the outside. It was the same intention as [the January 7 attack on] Charlie Hebdo except they didn’t manage to get in,” Francois Zimeray said by telephone.

A group of would-be assassins attempted to kill Lars Vilks, the creator of the Modoggies, at a free-speech event today in Copenhagen. The Swedish artist had organized the event, and a number of guests, including the French ambassador to Denmark, were in attendance when the attack occurred. Mr. Vilks was unhurt, but several police officers were wounded. Thirty to forty shots were fired, and two gunmen are at large. According to The Telegraph, one civilian is said to have been killed, but this is unconfirmed.

Steen has a comprehensive discussion. It’s in Danish, but Google does a pretty good job of translating it. He says the event continued after the attack, which certainly sounds like Lars Vilks’ style — he doesn’t rattle easily

The event was entitled “Art, blasphemy and the freedom of expression”. Well, we know what Islam thinks about such topics. However, I’m sure everyone realizes that this incident had nothing to do with Islam.

More at the BBC.

I will be gone most of the afternoon, so check in at Steen’s place or Vlad’s place for updates.

  1. What might have been post WW2 will not now or ever be. All that has been achieved is pc and Muslims macoute everywhere. No unity. No peace. No security.

  2. Yet another assault on a core value of Western civilization. I can only reiterate the declaration to Muslims at the end of the essay I wrote in the days after the Charlie Hebdo atrocity: “Come at me the way you came at them and you will not find helpless Europeans but a very capable American, one who acquired his first .45 automatic forty years ago, achieved the U.S. Army “Expert” rating with it, has trained and practiced with it constantly ever since, and still carries it daily. Try conclusions with me, and it’ll be you that ends up in the morgue.”

    • Ah, but they aren’t going to come at you. They come at the weak and helpless ones. It is their nature.

      • “their nature.”

        Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt;

        How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God.

        Genesis 36:12
        Esau’s son Eliphaz also had a concubine named Timna, who bore him Amalek. [Esau had married daughters of his half uncle Ishmael, father of the Arabs]

        Ecclesiastes 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

      • Yes. Muslims live as parasites in our societies. We lie to ourselves that we are giving these barely recognizable as above ground entities “refuge”. Its a Dhimmi-Day invasion in progress every day now for Mohamadans where any material or spiritual good only has value on the scale of sexual perversion and all the other deadly sins. What a shagged out ideology we refuse to confront and destroy.

    • PW-

      Your sentiment is noble, but they are not foolish enough to confront the strong directly.

      They will find a way to flank, infiltrate, or come in the back door.

      Read up on the river of Muslim money flowing through Europe and North America to better understand this concept in action.

    • Papa, the question is, how much longer will you be ‘lawfully’ able to possess your only effective means of self-defence that every able bodied and red blooded American is entitled to?

      Every day that passes brings with it more undermining of the constitution by those who have the clear intention of taking away your inalienable right to use firearms as a means of self-defence.

      Those who wish to control you and me and anyone else who is aware of their agenda will not come a knocking on your front door at midday to ask you politely to hand over your soon to be made ‘illegal’ firearms, but will kick in your back door at 3am in order to get your guns.

      Are you prepared for that?

      • They don’t live in Sydney Nemesis.
        Those like Papa are well advised by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

        “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

      • Obama and the Lefty miscreants have all but given up. Why? Because people are on to them and their games. They cannot guilt trip us or threaten us in any manner.

        All they have left is a executive order to nullify the 2nd amendment. If that is done, a red line will be crossed and the U.S. will cease to exist shortly thereafter. Even Obama isn’t that stupid.

        Sure Obama and Holder hate the fact they couldn’t disarm the people without a rebellion but we aren’t British or Aussies, we aren’t about to cede our only means of self-defense to mollify a bunch of drugged out SJW’s, wannabe tyrants and scared oligarchs.

        • I wish you were right, but sadly, Obama lives in a bubble of support from those who have something to gain from him. His administration is ignorant of history and confuses strategy with slogans.

          I agree that there won’t be a disarming of Americans – not without an extreme rebellion – but Obama is stupid enough to do things we couldn’t have dreamed of before his ascent into power…an ascent he’s not really responsible for designing or maintaining. As long as they leave him alone to play golf he will speak whatever is put in his teleprompter.

        • The only thing that Aussies have ‘ceded’ as you put it, is auto/semi-auto long arms. There are now more gun owners than at any other time in our history so to say that we ‘ceded’ our only means of self-defence is completely false.

          And anyway, my comment was more to do with preparedness for the actual event when it happens, not words of bravado in comments that prove nothing.

    • They ‘want’ to end up in the morgue. Killing non-Muslims while being killed is the only way to gain an assured trip to Paradise, according to the Koran.

    • Europeans are not necessarily lambs to the slaughter. We would be weak if the contents of our minds were emptied but we are still capable of defending the ideals that are worth defending, be it verbally or otherwise.

  3. Another successful mission to quell free speech in the modern world,no doubt newspapers across our countries will submit to muslim agression,will the west return the service before its too late,should we give our daughters up freely and pay the jizya willingly through halal certification and fraudulent welfare,if we dont back Libertally GB my friends i think its best we all migrate to Iceland

    • I’m probably not the first person to comment on this, much less to recognize it, but isn’t PC the precursor to Islamic speech codes?
      Didn’t we, by our prostrating ourselves before the PC gods prepare the way for the next step in speech control and thought control?
      So, to break the chain of control we must break from PC, and do it in outrageous fashion, wherever and whenever we can.
      The next time someone says you’re a racist, answer back, “So what?’
      Homophobe. So what.
      Sexist. So what.
      Then keep talking.
      But even to imagine such freedom of speech is to recognize immediately that we are not free.
      It is into such a milieu that Islamic speech codes are making their move.

      • That would be an interesting conversation to have, Harriet. On Twitter one time, someone or other accused us of being racist. I replied that such an accusation was sooo 20th century – they needed to find a better vocabulary, one that was less a mirror of their own mind.

        They left the room.

        It’s important not to get angry or reactive but to go on the offense.

  4. You see at this very moment there are many jihadis like these “(alleged” criminals. No. The alleged accused. Remember we are nice people. Yeah, many jihadis are lining up to get into the Dar-al-Harb. Why? Because UN said so. EU said so. And individual countries have no say. EU and UN are run by OIC (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation). USA and Britain claim that: they continue to lead the free world.

    FREE WORLD ? Where is that free world?

    Lars and Hebdo should educate people about the real causes : Muslim invasion of Dar al-harb, EU and UN being tools to Muslim countries to achieve their goals and complete the invasion, awaken the comatose western people and smell the powder and bloody blades, to educate the public that our Parties, who talk about freedom and democracy day and night, put us in this dire situation, from which we cannot escape unscathed. That they are doing all these crimes in the name of peace, justice, refugees. In practice, they are destroying us and their own governments, and then amending things through propaganda and poisonous rhetoric glazed with niceties, and empty pompous, arrogant words.
    How can jihadis lose something by drawing Pirates and Paedophiles?
    We want something to change things and right the wrongs.

    Why is it so difficult for our minds to diagnose the real problem?
    The real problem is the islam ideology, the koran that manual that comes with every newborn, tells him/her what to do and who to hate.
    How many jihadis can the west take? Unlimited? They marry four. Do we know why? Do we know why from Morocco, to Bosnia, to Indonesia, are muslims? This invasion started with the Pirate and has never stopped theoretically. It was stopped by force. That only thing that worked/ works. Not by giving them welfare money to buy weapons.

    There is no limit to the jihadis/muslim ambitions and greed. They have every justification for their atrocities. The Pirate said that allah, the other half of the Pirate, that looting, killing, invasions, rape, burglary, flogging, beheading, cutting limbs, are/ were made halal (licit), for him. The pirate has no ten commandments to follow. He can justify anything. and allah will agree.

    The problem is invasion by immigration: Qaddafi mentioned that. Houari Boumediene talked about it. Invasion of EU by muslim womb.

    Westerners cannot resist evil. Because they don’t know what evil is. We have eyes and ears but we can’t see or hear.

    What a civilization have created. . . for our enemies!

    • “We will conquer Europe, we will conquer America!
      Not through sword but through Da’wa.”

      “What remains, then, is to conquer Rome. The second part of the omen. “The city of Hiraq [once emperor of Constantinople] will be conquered first”, so what remains is to conquer Rome.’ This means that Islam will come back to Europe for the third time, after it was expelled from it twice… Conquest through Da’wa [proselytizing], that is what we hope for.

      We will conquer Europe,
      we will conquer America!
      Not through sword
      but through Da’wa.”

  5. The ummah — a significant portion thereof — are rising as one man.

    Meanwhile, the West as a whole is filled with dhimmis. What will it take for the West to grow a spine and rise as one man?

    • Indeed, what will it take? Probably the single most important aspect in what is holding back the West from recognizing the Islamic threat is the subordination to a deliberate falsehood that all cultures aspire to the same ideals, so therefore all cultures are equal, and it is a falsehood that is enshrined within humanist Human Rights legislation that has been wilfully designed to subject the West to this false doctrine via pseudo-legalistic laws against native populations that really have no place in those Western countries that have constitutions and bills of rights as the law of the land.

      That kind of thinking has been inculcated into the wider population of all Western countries now for nearly 50 years, and it is generally only those who escaped the rampant indoctrinated stupidity who are now able to look upon what once was, and what now is, to see the lie that many now live by.

  6. It’s Sweden that is going to be thinking long and hard about this, rather than Denmark, which has a much smaller Muslim population. Only a few dozen miles separate Copenhagen and Malmo, and many Sweden immigrants already border-hop because wages are higher in Denmark. Meanwhile, this morning, *before* the attack, Sweden Democrats were on 19% in a Yougov poll, their best performance ever. Perhaps, at last, Europe’s stupidest electorate will begin to come to its senses.

  7. They are told we’re the enemy: this is their realm of war.
    They recite their texts that tell them to ambush and kill us.
    They are commanded to view us with hatred as lower than beasts.
    They are permitted to use deception, and lie to us all.

    They disclaim any loyalty here to our state and laws.
    Their young men conspire to do killings both here and abroad.
    They are plotting to murder us wholesale with bombs and knives.
    Their intention is clear that we be in fear of our lives.

    They are here and round us.

    • Is there purpose behind this Islamification of the West or negligence / ignorance? Is there some gain for someone to it?

  8. There is someone who said, in a kind of Mafia-speak, “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”.

    • What puzzles me is that critter is still in office. In a democracy you can’t do anything if the rulers err, just like a dictator.

    • Obamerdeo speak. He and his Muslim Brotherhood front door and back door “fighters” for Allah are still in office and in the offices and walking up and down the corridors – Koran in hand. Back and forth and over nighting while collecting intelligence to do the Muslims people’s business. This must be the first time in history one would even imagine stuff like this. The reality may be far worse.

  9. Very likely the perps of this latest assault on freedom of speech were in the Swedish government’s “watch list,” but no action was taken to deport them or so lean on their shoulders to the point that they’d deport themselves. Sweden isn’t known as the rape capital of Europe for nothing. The Swedish populace had better get its crap together and soon before they’re all machine gunned or fitted for Islamic fetters.

    • They dare not deport muslim jihadis. Replace those with Christians and Jews then see how Europe acts decisively, courageously, and speak without fear or chewing or carefully choosing their words.

      • The invasion by absolutely useless Muslims who excel at nothing and contribute nothing to the unfortunate countries they infest. Borders allow the “larger”Muslim problem to be broken into manageable pieces. More patriotic citizens are less lightly to sell their countries out to a seedy Saudi than the current rootless consumer drifters.

  10. I notice the BBC commentary ends with a little backhander;
    “Cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad were published by a Danish newspaper in 2005, sparking deadly riots in some Muslim countries.”
    Not exactly and not according to the now repentant imam Ahmed Akkari.
    Ingrid Carlqvist reported when Akkari gave a talk and asked forgiveness at The Free Press Society, that along with other imams,
    “he traveled to The Middle East in order to stir up a glowing hatred against the small northern country that had had the audacity to offend the prophet.”
    Ahmed Akkari:
    “The truth is that there is not a single mosque or Muslim organization in Denmark that is not run by Islamists. As soon as you enter the house of the believers, you are met with Islamism whether you want it or not. As soon as you become a devoted Muslim, you are infected by extremism”.
    This was one of the men that sparked those “deadly riots”, where Muslims killed other Muslims.
    The cartoon was merely the device Islamists used, to further their supremacist, totalitarian Sharia-agenda.
    It comes as no surprise the BBC points the blame on the cartoon, for inciting such behaviour.
    A report by New Culture Forum highlights the BBC’s Islamism and immigration bias and claims;
    “over the past 15 years, Britain’s public broadcaster has given “overwhelmingly greater weight to pro-migration voices”
    The BBC likes them young, apparently;
    “The BBC’s schools website, aimed at educating children, apparently gives an uncritical view of Islam, one in which men and woman are equal and ‘the Prophet Muhammed stressed the importance of women’. But coverage of Christianity tends to be more harsh, with the same website stating, “Many people think the Christian Church is sexist. It does not treat men and women equally.”

    • Remember the entity in charge of ideological propaganda in occupied Britain is a dyed in the Halal wool Islamist who reads the same a Koran as the makers of those sexy ISIS videos.

  11. A Muslim atrocity or three from now may force everyone’s neck glands to start seriously gulping and twitching at the sight, sound or smell of a Muslim or symbols that point to the death cult. Will entire nations mobilize soon and vote out the Koran, [additional floridly excessive rhetoric redacted]. Or, have we already decided that unless it goes nuclear we are just going to get on with our lives.

    • Definitely an Englishman…he reports on a creepy new way to shut people up:

      Just as the provocations of the British have increased such as beheading a soldier on the streets of London or defiling yet another sacred monument, so the coalition has decided to tighten the screws still further on anyone rash enough to complain about our multicultural paradise.

      They came up with a snappy name, The Prevent Strategy, and Theresa May has promoted this new law as doing whatever it takes in the fight against “extremists”. The Prevent Strategy law currently making its unopposed way through the Commons contains a whole raft of measures aimed at nipping the fanatical impulse in the bud. Just about every civil servant dealing with the public will be tasked with the responsibility of spotting and dealing with extremists.

      This sounds acceptable to the poor battered citizenry out there sick to the back teeth with fire-breathing imams, street level Islamic aggression and Muslim terror plots. But that’s only because Theresa May skated over what she means by “extremists” when she gave her heir to Thatcher barnstorming conference speech. Sadly it turns out that the latest repressive measures are aimed equally at murdering terrorists and those warning the rest of us about murdering terrorists. To Theresa and Dave they are both “extremists”. It’s as logical as lumping together pyromaniacs and firemen. Except that to those of a totalitarian cast of mind it actually is logical to try to control everybody.

      There’s a link to the “Prevent StrategY” on his page, linked by Mr. Brompton, above.

      I think the title ought to be “Pyromaniacs and Firemen”. Oh wait. That’s sexist…but at this point, who cares?

      • Repression only ever creates resistance. Again, its a puzzle as to whether the British establishment understand the ultimate outcome of being too controlling with its citizenry or if they are just plain dumb.

  12. Enjoy them! These are the golden years of peace and brotherhood.

    The government has closed down free speech and made protesting Islamism illegal.

    What remains to do for somebody who’s not prepared to see their country disappear without a fight?

    Wait till the native populations have had enough. There’s a weirdly convincing post on that. It’s called “Warmonger” at:

  13. BBC Radio this morning, the news report about the jihad attack in Copenhagen; the “lone wolf” is being blamed again. There do seem to be rather a lot of them, a veritable global pack of “lone wolves” in fact.
    I would agree with Bill Maher’s apt analogy:
    “When there are this many bad apples, there is something wrong with the orchard.”
    This poses the ever more pressing question – at what point is the West going to do something about said orchard?

  14. Vilks was cracking jokes while in hiding in the freezer room

    – I lay in a freezer room and held hands with Lars Vilks. He was very cool. We lay there telling each other bad jokes. His bodyguards did a great job, says Helle Brix to Danish TV2.
