CNN, ever-attentive to the “people’s right to know”, has apparently exposed the location of Lars Vilks’ safe house.
Mr. Vilks, as you may recall, is the artist behind the Modoggies, and has had a fatwa issued against him, death threats, and most notably a bounty put on his head by Al Qaeda in Iraq.
Larwyn keeps an eye on the TV news for us, and she just sent this email:
I’m really sick but have to get this out to you. CNN did a segment on Lars Vilks; they even interviewed the MUSLIM woman calling for his death.- - - - - - - - -
He had a death threat phone call portrayed in the segment.
Now here’s the dreadful part, when you consider Google satellite maps: They show him walking along the path to his SAFE HOUSE, “going over fences and through backyards” she says. All along the way they are showing fences, particular fences, some with large planters, so easily identifiable right there.
But then they go even further: they show the front of the house, the door, and the light fixture. It’s a fairly wide shot of the front of the SAFE HOUSE, I’d estimate at a minimum ten feet of it. So those wanting to murder him know the colors of paint and even the style of the window, light fixture and door.
I am sure this will be broadcast on CNN International. Wolf Blitzer said they would follow up on the story. It was on during the 7PM [EDT] hour.
By the way, they reported that this artist makes fun of all religions and has portrayed Jesus as a paedophile. WOW! Where are the CHRISTIANISTS’ DEATH THREATS?
As I have been too sick to even read much on the blogs and too weak to do all the movements required to email out my collections.
Hope you can find it. Hope someone will call CNN ON THIS.
If anyone has any more to report on this latest travesty by CNN, please leave a note in the comments.
Larwyn sent this follow-up after the above was posted:
I just read your email and the post. And I should have made my description clearer regarding the SAFE HOUSE. He only goes there at night
Lars Vilks works at his studio, which they also filmed; I’m guessing it was also his former home. But since the location of that would be accessible public knowledge, I saw nothing wrong with that part of the report, as Vilks was a participant.
I was shocked by the camera work on the segment and what they “inadvertently????” revealed by including structures and decorative items he was passing on his way to the SAFE HOUSE.
Now, one might want to think that the home filmed was a ruse and the not the real safe house. But unless it is vacant, and it certainly did not appear to in be poor condition, if Lars Viks isn’t staying there at night, someone else lives there. Islamists aren’t known to be picky about their murder victims.
On Google satellite maps, it isn’t as if the area is immense that would have to be scrutinized. It is obviously a neighborhood. As he travels back and forth every day, they only have to work it out from the studio location.
He goes to the SAFE HOUSE at night.
Hope that answers your commenter’s thought. Hope someone finds the tape.
Trying to get some more chicken soup down. Will try to look in if I can stay awake.
