Mission Accomplished

A Swedish cartoonist who has received death threats for depicting the Islamic prophet Mohammed was attacked as he gave a presentation to a Swedish University. He is keen to go back and give another speech to uphold free speech, however:
Officials said they would "not likely" invite Vilks again because of the incident. In some quarters, the university's reponse is adding to concerns that violence and threats from some members of the Muslim community are effectively muzzling free speech.
Another victory for militant Islamism over free speech.

It's the same when our own Police forbid marches by the 'extreme' right to prevent 'violent disorder', not by them but by their opponents when what the Police should be doing is upholding the law if and when free expression is met with such 'violent disorder' by the perpetrators.
