Lars Hedegaard just barely survives jihadist attack

The Danish Free Press Society leader was very lucky not to be murdered by a jihadist who tried to shoot him (via The Spectator):
A prominent Danish critic of Islam, Lars Hedegaard, has been targeted in a gun attack in the capital Copenhagen, police say.

The 70-year-old writer and historian was not injured in the shooting.

The gunman approached Mr Hedegaard pretending to be a postman and missed with a shot at his head, police said.

Mr Hedegaard heads Denmark's Free Press Society, which argues that religious and ideological interests are threatening freedom of expression.

He also heads the International Free Press Society, founded in 2009, which launched an international campaign to support the Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders's right to criticise Islam.

Mr Hedegaard was fined in 2011 for making insulting statements about Muslims but Denmark's supreme court dismissed the judgment the following year. [...]

Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt condemned the attack, saying: "It is even worse if the attack is rooted in an attempt to prevent Lars Hedegaard using his freedom of expression."
I hope they've caught the filthy excrement who tried to put an end to his life.

Mark Steyn makes a good point that the prime minister's statement would be a lot more convincing than it is if he hadn't just stood by and let Hedegaard be persecuted by the courts, all for criticizing the Religion of Rape. If the prime minister really wants to make things better, he'll call on the legal system to stop pursuing Hedegaard and also change the laws that allow this kind of legal persecution to take place.
