Another Mohammad cartoonist murder plot discovered

Last September I reported that Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks had a $100,000 reward on his head after one of his cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammad’s head on the body of a dog was published. It’s now being reported that the Sweden’s Economic Crimes Bureau conducted a raid of a home back in November and found a map of cartoonist’s home and documents on military night-vision binoculars. The two men living in the home were suspected of embezzling money to support foreign terrorist organizations. Swedish officials say this is the most serious threat to the cartoonist so far. Vilks and the editor that ran the cartoons are currently living under police protection.

The Vilks cartoons are not related to the 12 cartoons published in Denmark.

Thats horrible. It’s not fair that we live in a world in which people need to resort to violence over a poorly drawn cartoon.
