    Default Danish Critic of Radical Islam Survives Assassination Attempt

    Danish free speech advocate — and critic of radical Islam — Lars Hedegaard survived an assassination attempt by a man with a gun on Tuesday at his Copenhagen home.

    Hedegaard’s partner, Swedish journalist Ingrid Carlqvist, told TheBlaze that the young man appeared to be of Arab descent and that she and Hedegaard are certain the motives for the attack stem from the launch of their new weekly newspaper, “Dispatch International,” which contains content critical of radical Islam.

    Hedegaard was shaken but not physically injured in the attack at his apartment, where a gunman, posed as a deliveryman, rang the doorbell under the pretense that he had a package to deliver. When Hedegaard opened the front door, the man pulled out a gun and began firing.

    “The bullet flew past my right ear, after which I attacked him and punched him in the face, which made him lose the gun,” Hedegaard told the AP. Carlqvist said that the gunman attempted to shoot twice more but that the assailant’s gun jammed each time.

    “I am so happy that he was such a lousy shooter, that he missed.” Carlqvist told TheBlaze. “The bullet went right beside Lars’ head. It is really a miracle that Lars is alive.”

    Those who have followed the Islamist-led carnage surrounding Danish cartoons of the Prophet Muhammed might be familiar with Hedegaard, a journalist, scholar, and leading advocate for free speech as it relates to Islam. As president of the the Danish Free Press Society and The International Free Press Society (IFPS ), Hedegaard has consistently come under fire for refusing to capitulate to those seeking to silence voices critical of Islam’s radical elements.

    Hedegaard’s role in the IFPS is not what Carlqvist believes is the problem, however. “He [Hedegaard] has been chairman for ten years,” she told TheBlaze. “We are sure the attack has everything two do with the weekly newspaper.”

    At the end of 2012, the duo launched Dispatch International online, which contains articles in English, Swedish and Danish, spanning a range of topics, including Islam. The print version was just launched in January and is now due to complete its sixth installment.

    “We do have a point of view critical of Islam,” Carlqvist noted before stressing that the ethnicity of the shooter, who she and Hedegaard believe to be Arab, “is crucial information” that directly correlates to the attack.

    She added that police have sequestered Hedegaard away to a secure location and that, for safety reasons, he may not be able to return to his apartment for an unknown period of time.

    “I can’t go to my house tonight either,” she told TheBlaze. “If they want to shoot the Danish editor in chief, then they want to shoot the Swedish editor in chief.”

    Despite concerns of retribution from the Islamist-community, Carlqvist emphatically stated that she and Hedegaard are undeterred in their course.

    “We are more determined than ever with the [goals of] our newspaper,” she said.

    Mirroring Carlqvist’s sentiments, Hedegaard was able to send TheBlaze the following statement explaining that he will, under no uncertain terms, alter his course concerning Islam.

    “What was the truth yesterday remains truth today,” he said.

    The print edition of International Dispatch is available in Swedish only, but the subscription-based online version is available in English.

    Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt called the attack “despicable” and noted that “it is even worse if the attack is rooted in an attempt to prevent Lars Hedegaard to use his freedom of expression.”

    Fellow free speech advocate Geert Wilders echoed the prime minister’s sentiments via Twitter, stating that the attack was “terrible” and that his “thoughts are with him.”

    The Free Press Society said it was “shaken and angry,” but “relieved that the perpetrator did not succeed.”

    Information concerning the attack, particularly the motives and description of the assailant have not been widely reported. Carlqvist indicated that Danish media has in fact reported that the shooter is Arab or Arab-looking, but that both Swedish and international media, perhaps for reasons of political correctness, are refraining from mentioning what they believe to be the shooter’s ethnicity.

    Additionally, most reports regarding the attack state that Hedegaard had been “fined 5,000 kroner ($1,000) in 2011 for making a series of insulting and degrading statements about Muslims.” The mainstream reports to date have not included, however, the fact that in 2012 the Danish Supreme Court acquitted Hedegaard of all charges, striking down his conviction 7–0.

    Possible mole in security detail of Dutch frontrunner Wilders

    February 18, 2017




    A Dutch secret service agent who was part of the team responsible for protecting Geert Wilders, the frontrunner in next month's election, has been suspended on suspicion of leaking details to a criminal organization, the secret service said on Wednesday.

    Wilders, who campaigns on an anti-Islam platform that includes closing mosques and banning immigration from Muslim countries that has led to the protection, condemned the alleged breach, saying he cannot function without adequate security.

    Dutch newspapers De Telegraaf and NRC Handelsblad and the country's national broadcaster NOS identified the suspect as an experienced officer in his mid-30s, using his first name and last initial.

    Secret Service chief Erik Akerboom said he could not confirm the man's identity but confirmed media reports he has a "Moroccan background".

    Akerboom told Business News Radio that "as far as we know" Wilders' safety had not been jeopardized.

    Wilders has frequently railed against rogue elements within the Netherlands' Moroccan community and pledged to crack down on "Moroccan scum" who he said were making the streets unsafe as he launched his campaign on Saturday for the March 15 vote.

    The agent who was suspended was one of a team tasked with prescreening locations where Wilders is scheduled to make public appearances. He was not a member of Wilders' physical protection team, Akerboom said.

    "My heavens" Wilders tweeted. "If I cannot blindly trust the service that's supposed to protect me, then I cannot function."

    Prime Minister Mark Rutte met Wilders, his chief opponent in the vote, to discuss the suspension.

    The ANP News agency reported that Rutte declined comment after emerging from the meeting with Wilders and Justice Minister Stef Blok.

    "I can say nothing about these kinds of conversations," Rutte said, repeating his standard response to questions on security measures.

    Other Dutch politicians reacted with concern, including Wilders' most vocal critic, Alexander Pechtold of the centrist D66 Party.

    "These are very alarming initial reports, and they must be terrible for Wilders to hear," he said in a tweet. "We must not be naive. More clarification quickly, please."
