First, here’s a better video that shows Lars Vilks being actually taken off the stage during a hail of eggs being thrown by mustards in the crowd. You see folks, they came to be provoked, they could have stayed away from the event, voiced their opinions in the press or in the streets in front of the event, but that’s not good enough for them.
They want to dictate to society, through intimidation and fear, what others may or may not see, say or experience. That’s at the heart of sharia, complete submission of the Muslim, and most importantly, the non-Muslim as well. If we allow one bit of sharia to flourish in the west, we risk eventually (decades or centuries), for the entire system to set up shop, and our future generations will bear the brunt for this generations gross stupidity.

Lars Vilks egged at ‘Mohammad’ lecture
Published: 22 Feb 12 12:47 CET |
Controversial Swedish artist Lars Vilks was forced to dodge eggs thrown by angry audience members while giving a lecture about his Mohammad cartoons and free expression at the University of Karlstad on Tuesday.
The local Islamic Culture Association (Islamiska kulturföreningen) and Karlstad Young Muslims (Unga muslimer i Karlstad) had called for a boycott of the lecture earlier in the day, writing in a statement that Vilks ”abuses the freedom of speech that we all enjoy and uses it in such a way as to create tension sin society”
Vilks began his lecture bringing up examples of artists who have challenged the boundaries of freedom of speech in different ways, several of whom have been reported to the police and convicted.
Among these was an exhibition on pornographic images of children, Malmö street artist Dan Park’s poster of a black man in chains with the text “Our Negro slave has run away”, Vilks’s own caricature of the prophet Muhammed as a dog and Jesus as a paedophile, according to a university statement.
A short while into the lecture, fifteen people suddenly rose and began throwing eggs at Vilks.
Two other members of the audience reacted against the attack and started shouting at the egg-throwers.
