Lars Vilks on CNN

CNN have a profile of Lars Vilks, the Swedish Modog artist with an al-Qaeda bounty on his head.

The video is well worth a watch. It contains an interview with a demented burka declaring its intention to “slaughter Vilks like a lamb”.

The phlegmatic Vilks remains unruffled throughout; checking his car for bombs and sneaking through gardens to his safe house every night with amused resignation.

At one point during the interview he receives a death threat by text: “I will kill you, you son of a bitch.”

“Why aren’t you frightened?” asks the astonished reporter.

“You get used to it,” replies Vilks with a smile and a shrug.

CNN, by contrast, did not have the courage show any of his cartoons on air.

UPDATE: Lars Vilks has acquired a guard dog and named it Muhammed. It is a bitch.
