Shooting target featured in CAN's explosive new documentary on Islamic radicalism

Lars Vilks, controversial Swedish artist, spoke with Martin Mawyer about why he continues to criticize Islam.

Swedish artist Lars Vilks -- who is featured in my new documentary on Islam's takeover of Europe -- recently survived yet another attempt on his life when an Islamic gunman opened fire on a café in Copenhagen, Denmark, where Vilks was present.

In my new documentary, "Europe's Last Stand: America's Final Warning," Vilks explains why he continues to antagonize Islamists even though they have tried to kill him several times since he published drawings of the prophet Mohammad as a dog in 2007.

"I am an incorrect artist," Vilks admitted during our 2012 interview.

In this short video, I am releasing previously unseen footage of Vilks talking to us from his home in Sweden. Our interview was held two years after Islamists set his home on fire in an attempt to kill him.

"These were amateur terrorists," he told me, speaking of the incident where his home was set on fire. "That's good; it means we have a chance. But if they are professionals, you have no chance."

 My new documentary, "Europe's Last Stand: America's Final Warning,"took me to more than a dozen European nations where I met with people like Vilks -- who also has a fatwa (death sentence) on him from Al Qaeda because of the drawings of Mohammad.

More than four years in the making, the film has been received at its initial screenings with applause, sounds of shock, and even tears as some of the experts in European society warn that these Islamic atrocities are already on our shores.

What I witnessed and documented in Europe shocked me to the core. Not only has Europe been negatively impacted by years of uncontrolled Islamic immigration, but the time-honored traditions of Europe are tumbling down as Islam imposes its own traditions on the continent -- and attempts to impose them on Europeans, as well.

That's one reason why people like Vilks are forced to live in hiding and employ bodyguards around the clock for their protection.

 During our filming we were even caught in the midst of a riot in Aarhus, Denmark, and a bloody protest in Manchester, England -- prompted by anti-Islam protests. All of this can be viewed in my new film, "Europe's Last Stand: America's Final Warning."

The latest attack on Vilks' life occurred recently in Copenhagen when an Islamic gunman opened fire on a café hosting an event sponsored by the artist. Vilks, 68, was hosting a free-speech event at the café and was unharmed in the shooting. His bodyguards whisked him away just as the shooting got under way.

One civilian was killed as the gunman sprayed the café with more than 30 bullets from an automatic rifle. Before fleeing on foot, the killer also shot and wounded two police officers. He was subsequently killed by police. 

Vilks exploded onto the political scene in 2007 after he published a series of drawings depicting Muhammad as a dog. The drawings were intended to be shown at a local art exhibition, but were removed by the organizers who cited security concerns and fear of Muslim violence.

Vilks submitted the drawings to other art galleries in Sweden, all of which declined to show them for the same reason. The controversy over "self-censorship" gained international attention and soon the governments of Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Jordan as well as the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), were condemning Vilks and calling on Sweden to punish him. Eventually three Swedish newspapers printed the cartoons, inflaming the controversy.

Eventually, al Qaeda-affiliated groups, including ISIS, put him on a "hit list;" ISIS has offered $150,000 for his assassination.

American citizen Colleen LaRose, also known as "Jihad Jane," was arrested in 2009 along with two other Americans in a failed plot to assassinate Vilks. On the same day of her arrest, seven other Muslims were arrested in the Republic of Ireland in another plot to kill Vilks.

In 2010, while he was giving a lecture about free speech at Uppsala University in Sweden, Vilks was assaulted by Muslims while a film about Muhammad going into a gay bar was being shown. Some students demanded that the film be stopped, claiming it to be "gay porn." One of them gave Vilks a "head butt," breaking his eyeglasses.

A few days later, on May 15, 2010, Vilks' home in Sweden was attacked by Islamic arsonists. They smashed the windows and threw in bottles of gasoline which ignited a small fire. Vilks was not at home at the time of the attack. Two Kosovar-Swedish brothers were arrested and given prison sentences of up to three years in the attack.
