via The Attempted Assassination of Lars Hedegaard

According to the English-language The Copenhagen Post:

Islam critic survives assassination attempt

Assailant’s gun jammed after firing first shot – police now searching for two men wearing ski masks seen climbing into Copenhagen Zoo

The renowned anti-Islam journalist and scholar Lars Hedegaard reportedly survived an assassination attempt outside his home on Pelargonieviej in Frederiksberg this morning.

According to Ritzau, the assailant fled when his gun jammed after firing the first shot at around 11:20.

“A man shot at the victim but he missed and the bullet went over his head,” police commissioner Lars-Christian Borg told Ritzau. “When he tried to fire again, the pistol clicked and the assailant ran away.”

While Borg would not confirm the identity of the assassin’s target, a neighbour of Hedegaard’s told Politiken newspaper that he was the target.

“He told me that a man had approached him with a package and when he went to take it the man fired at him,” the neighbour told Politiken.

After first sealing off Hedegaard’s street, police have now also cordoned off Copenhagen Zoo after two men wearing ski masks were seen jumping over the wall to the zoo into the hippopotamus enclosure.

Berlingske newspaper reports that witnesses reported hearing what sounded like a gunshot at around 13:50.

Police say the man that fired the shot was wearing a red coat, is around 30 years of age and has dark skin and thick, dark hair.

Update: Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff has issued the following statement about today’s events:

It is with utmost disgust and abhorrence that I condemn the cowardly, but thankfully failed, attack on my friend and colleague Lars Hedegaard, the brave Danish advocate of freedom.

This assassination attempt is once again a prime example that there can be no dialog between the adherents of the Islamic faith and the rest of us. The tenets of the Islamic faith demand that those speaking the truth about Islam and Sharia law must either convert or be killed. We must urgently realize at this point just how far our freedoms have been eroded: more and more no-go Sharia zones in both the UK and Denmark; assassination attempts on critics of Islam; lawfare against critics of Islam; all of which is aimed at silencing those who stand up for freedom of speech and Western liberal principles.

Make no mistake: we will not be silenced nor will we give in. We are resolved in our stand against the forces of evil. We are resolved to continue our quest to reassert our God-given rights. We are for freedom. We love freedom. We will not submit.

  1. Congrats, Freedom rules again

  2. Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff rightly stated, “This assassination attempt is once again a prime example that there can be no dialog between the adherents of the Islamic faith and the rest of us.”

    I would rephrase her statement that followed the one above in this way: Muslims count as blasphemy, the act of unbelievers quoting many of the actions and rulings of their prophet and his provided work. In addition, the Islamic order for those who commit blasphemy against their prophet and his handy work is kill them.

    For that reason, I assert, beyond the “Believers” it is only abject fools, idiots, cowards who refrain from calling for the outlawing of Islam and the tearing down/or closing down of all mosque and madrassas.

    Either we do that or we accept legalizing murder and maiming for the sake of Allah.

    Only in the dreams and foolish imaginations of those fact-resistant, when it comes to Islam, are there more options with respect to this subject than those just stated.

  3. More from the satanists of islam. Lets hope the hippos are not islamic supporters and squash the pair like the pair of cowardly rats they are

  4. “After first sealing off Hedegaard’s street, police have now also cordoned off Copenhagen Zoo after two men wearing ski masks were seen jumping over the wall to the zoo into the hippopotamus enclosure.”

    DAMNABLE COWARDS!!!!! HEY, ISLAMISTS, WHAT’S WITH THE “SKI MASKS”????? IF YOU PERVERTS ARE SO GUNG-HO ABOUT PREACHING TRUTH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS OF YOUR allah god, THEN WHY HIDE BEHIND SKI MASKS, BURKAS, AND OTHER FULL BODY COVERINGS?????

    BECAUSE YOU’RE DAMNABLE COWARDS, THAT’S WHY!!!!! AND YOUR allah god IS A DEVIL!!!!! MAY THE HIPPOS CONSUME THEM–I HEAR THEY HAVE A VICIOUS BITE!!!!!

    • You said it right, Bro. Muhammad too was a coward, hiding behind his men or pushing them ahead to do his dirty buisness

  5. If the same thing happened to them, the screaming would be unbelievable. They are making progress eliminating guns in America while Obama arms them. There are many Wahhabi being trained in the US to fly remote planes. Obama stopped the restrictions for them to enter America. What a mess

    • Roger, what a mess indeed, to be tidy about it.

      In case one wonders just what that seemingly gasping for air troublesome noise one detects in the background is, cut off all other noise, listen closely and you will quickly and clearly identify the sound: America chocking, struggling for needed air, the noose of Allah, the Rope of Allah steadily tightening around our out-stretched necks.
