A gunman has tried to shoot a Danish writer and prominent critic of Islam, but the writer managed to fend off his assailant and was not injured in the attack.
Denmark's prime minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, condemned the attack. "It is even worse if the attack is rooted in an attempt to prevent Lars Hedegaard using his freedom of expression," she told the Danish news agency Ritzau.
Note to Europe: Wake up and smell the subversion of your cultural heritage.
Even in Europe the critics of Islam are not safe! Islamism is a big threat to democracy.
why are islamists hell bent on being violent, are they trying to fill the void that was left by the crazy christians in the dark ages??
There is a principle here that must be upheld, the freedom of speech. Thankfully, Lars Hedegaard was not shot; he had the right and responsibility to speek his mind. Atrocities committed by members of the Islamic faith remain intolerable to civilized society. More of us speak out against the sword and gun of militant religious and have every right and reason to do so.
