    Danish media say Mr Westergaard was in his home in Copenhagen with his wife and grandchild when a man broke in and threatened him with a hammer.

    Sorry, no Mohammad toons in my repertoire yet.

    I wonder when they will have a mass demonstration against the killing of this terrorista?

    Why am I not surprised that someone who thinks its hilarious to draw an amateurish cartoon of Obama as a Chinese(?) monkey/Beavis is incapable of reading the article or any of the posts and realizing that the guy in question is not dead?

    Thats what Scorpian said in the OP. But, you can't find that sentence in the link, his or mine. He probably got that from an outside source, which I think is probably wrong though, since both his link, and mine confirm a knife was used. Though mine does add the use of an ax...

    Attempt to Kill Danish Cartoonist Who Outraged Muslim World Foiled

    COPENHAGEN — A Somali man wielding an ax and a knife was shot by police as he attempted to kill an artist who drew a cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad that sparked outrage in the Muslim world, the head of Denmark's intelligence agency said Saturday.

    Jakob Scharf said in a statement that a 28-year-old man with ties to Al Qaeda attempted to enter Kurt Westergaard's home in Aarhus shortly after 10 p.m. on Friday. But Westergaard pressed an alarm and police arrived minutes later, foiling the attempt on his life.

    The attack on the artist, whose rendering was among 12 that led to the torching of Danish diplomatic offices in predominantly Muslim countries in 2006, was "terror related," Scharf said.

    Westergaard, whose 5-year-old granddaughter was in the home on a sleepover, sought shelter in a specially made safe room when the suspect broke a window of the home, said Preben Nielsen of the Aarhus police.

    Officers arrived two minutes later and tried to arrest the assailant, who wielded an ax at a police officer. The officer then shot the man in a knee and a hand, authorities said. Nielsen said despite his injuries the suspect's life was not in danger.

    The suspect's name was not released in line with Danish privacy rules.

    "The arrested man has according to PET's information close relations to the Somali terrorist group, al-Shabaab, and Al Qaeda leaders in eastern Africa," Scharf said. The PET is Denmark's intelligence agency.

    Scharf said without elaborating that the man is suspected of having been involved in terror related activities in east Africa. He had been under PET's surveillance but not in connection with Westergaard, he said

    The man, who had a staying permit in Denmark, was to be charged Saturday with attempted murder for trying to kill Westergaard and a police officer, Scharf said.

    Westergaard remains a potential target for extremists nearly five years after he drew a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad wearing a bomb-shaped turban. The drawing was printed along with 11 others in Jyllands-Posten in 2005.The drawings triggered an uproar a few months later when Danish and other Western embassies in several Muslim countries were torched by angry protesters who felt the cartoons had profoundly insulted Islam.

    Over a cartoon. Years later and Islamic terrorists are still trying to kill people over a cartoon they didn't like.

    Mr Westergaard is said to have raised the alarm and police entered the house and shot the intruder.

    Mr Westergaard's cartoons were printed by Jyllands-Posten in 2006.

    They triggered violent protests, with Danish embassies attacked around the world and dozens killed in riots.

    This is breaking News just come across the wire so I won't make a comment till I see the rest of the story. But I will say if this person is a Radical Muslim I want the Muslim World come out and actually show that they want a new day and call this what it is an act of Terror.

    I think this would be a good way of bringing out the terrorist and animals.Just make a cartoon that offends those scum and they will pop out to try to take the cartoonist out, heck I bet koran toilet paper would probably work just as a well.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It's not just Islamic terrorists that try to kill people exercising their right to free speech, but Muslims who are not terrorists or linked or affiliated in anyway to Islamic terrorist organizations.

    What did you just say?


    BTW, I never said they were the only ones who do this but they are the clear leader in number of attacks and violence.
