Storm Track Intimidation: Now that’s Hutspah!

You know that Swedish artist who drew pictures of Mohammed as a dog? Well, he’s at it again and he says he will not be intimidated by the thuggery Jihad of the Islamists. In fact, Lars Vilks is planning to carry the defense of his free speech a few steps further.

Defying threats, Vilks wants to turn the dog-prophet cartoon row into a musical.

He's offended Muslims worldwide and al-Qaida wants him dead but Swedish artist Lars Vilks said Monday he has no regrets about portraying the Prophet Muhammad as a dog.

Vilks, 61, told The Associated Press he even plans to convert the row over his prophet drawings into a musical, with prominent roles depicting Iran's president, Sweden's prime minister and al-Qaida terrorists.

"A musical comes to mind ... I think it would help the debate," Vilks said after breaking away from a business seminar in southern Sweden.


Good luck on the debate. You don’t have rational discussion with irrational fanatics – or as my grandfather used to say, “You don’t argue with drunkards and fools.”

The eccentric sculptor and academic appeared unfazed by death threats and the risk of rekindling fiery protests that swept across Muslim countries last year against Danish newspaper cartoons of Muhammad.

"Personally I'm not afraid," Vilks said, although he lives in a secret location under police protection. He also admits to looking for bombs underneath his car.

Vilks said Muslims living in the West would have to get used to disrespectful drawings of their religious symbols, "because here in the West we mock everything. I think also the Muslims will understand that this is the system we have and it's not really against Muslims, it's just the principle of being able to insult religions."

The Swedish artist has been known to ruffle the establishment’s feathers before.

In the 1980s he built a sculpture made of driftwood in a nature reserve in southern Sweden without permission, triggering a lengthy legal battle. He was fined, but the seaside sculpture — a jumble of wood nailed together in chaotic fashion — draws tens of thousands of visitors a year.

Ah!! Those crazy artists. What can you do with them?

  • Now that's really Avant Garde.

    If we crack the ice
    and let the water of truth flow
    millions of trapped Muslims can
    link hands with us.
    And by saving them
    we save ourselves.
