Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

The Jihadists tried to kill Lars Vilks today at a free speech event in Denmark. Vilks is a courageous Swedish artist whose drawings of Muhammad got him a spot on the al-Qaeda hit list. I met him over two years ago at a 9/11 event in New York City organized by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer at which Vilks and I both spoke on the threat of Global Jihad. You can watch Vilks’ speech at that 9/11 event by clicking here.

Vilks survived the terrorist assassination attempt today and was not killed or injured, but another man attending the free speech event was killed. Three policemen were injured. The Jihadists escaped.

Colleen Renee LaRose, also known as Jihad Jane, an American citizen from Philadelphia, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to murder Vilks. She is serving ten years in prison.

In one case, Vilks’ home was set on fire by Jihadists who poured gasoline through a window and set the house on fire.

As I wrote at the time of my appearance at the event with Vilks, “…whether it’s a drawing, a cartoon, or a film, the Islamists will always look for something or someone to riot about and use as an excuse to kill. But rather than reaffirm our First Amendment rights, the Obama Administration has made it clear that they want to silence those who criticize the ‘religion of peace.’ What is coming to America, courtesy of the Obama Administration, is more scrutiny of and threats against those who are labeled Islamophobes by such groups as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the George Soros-funded Center for American Progress.”

The SPLC lists its enemies by name (such as myself), identifying their cities and towns, thus making it easier for violent lunatics and terrorists to find them.

Obama had told the United Nations in 2012, “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.”

Despite the risks, we must continue speaking out.

For America's Survival,

Cliff Kincaid, President
