Swedish artist Lars Vilks (most known for his political cartoon of Mohammed in 2007 that started many threats & attacks) was attacked again while giving a Lecture at Uppsala University in Sweden on art and freedom of expression. The lecture turned violent when Lars’ video segment reportedly of two nude gay men wearing masks with the prophet Mohammed printed on them started.

More can be read at the Washington Post among other places but details are few and from what i can read it plays off seemingly like Vilks is courting controversy at this point and a segment of the Muslim community is more then willing to follow him around and take advantage of the opportunity? What are your thoughts? Feel free to call our number 312-772-2780 or pingback this post from your site.
