It’ll truly be news when I can tell you about Muslim populations that allow free speech and cartoons against them to exist without violence against the “perpetrators” . . . or that Muslims allow Jews to live in peace somewhere in Europe without Muslim thugs attacking them and willing non-Muslim appeasers allowing it to go on.
Sadly, that’s man bites dog stuff. This, on the other hand, is, as you know by now, run-of-the-mill stuff for Muslims. By the way, if you watch the second video, they aren’t just shouting “allahu akbar” [allah is the greatest/great (than your G-d)], but also “Lah-ilah-a- ill-allah” [there is no g-d but allah)], which is the first part of the “shehadah,” the oath of martyrdom, the utterance of which makes one a Muslim under Islamic law (so don’t say it out loud or you might be labeled an apostate). These Swedish sissies are just lucky that none of these Muslims detonated a bomb or shot a gun:
A Swedish artist who angered Muslims by depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a dog was assaulted Tuesday as furious protesters interrupted his university lecture about the limits of artistic freedom.
Lars Vilks told The Associated Press a man leaped from the front row and head-butted him as he was delivering his speech, breaking Vilks’ glasses but leaving him uninjured. Two people were arrested but it wasn’t immediately clear whether the attacker was among them.
A video clip of the incident by a Swedish newspaper showed police using pepper spray and batons to hold off an angry crowd shouting “God is great” in Arabic after Vilks was escorted out of the lecture hall. . . .
Vilks said a group of about 15 people had been shouting and trying to interrupt the lecture before the incident at Uppsala University.
Many of them stormed the front of the room after the attack and clashed with security guards as Vilks was pulled away into a separate room, he said, describing the scene as “complete chaos.”

“A man ran up and threw himself over me. I was head-butted and my glasses were broken,” Vilks said before hanging up for questioning by police.
Uppsala University spokeswoman Pernilla Bjork said Vilks was showing an excerpt from a film by an Iranian artist about Islam and homosexuality that had been banned from YouTube when the commotion started.
“It was about when Muslims and Muhammad are represented in homosexual situations,” said Anders Montelius, a 23-year-old student who attended the lecture.
“Some people started shouting, things happened really fast. About 10-15 seconds later it erupts. A guy from the front row gets up and sets upon Vilks. Several others followed this man. There was commotion and police pepper-sprayed a couple of people,” Montelius told AP.
“When the university person responsible for the lecture announced that the lecture was discontinued, there were cheers and chants in Arabic,” he said.
The video posted on the Web site of newspaper Uppsala Nya Tidning showed agitated police officers clashing with protesters at the front of the lecture hall. A female police officer uses pepper spray to subdue a young man. Another youngster is wrestled to the ground.
Uppsala police spokesman Tommy Karlsson said a man and woman in their 20’s were detained on suspicion of using violence against police.
Ooooh. You can’t show stuff about gays and Muslims. Remember–as Mr. Ahmadinejad told us–there are no gays in Islam . . . or at least, none in Iran.

The violence will only increase if stern measures are not taken against people who perpetrate such acts. Also, the Islamists won once again,since the lecture was terminated.
Yup, they did. And we all lost . . . yet again.
