'I am a Muslim and your laws do not apply to me, it's just so. Om jag skulle acceptera era lagar då kan jag inte längre vara Muslim If I were to accept your laws then I can no longer be a Muslim'
'Amatullah ger sharialagen, om inte ett ansikte, så varje fall en temperamentsfull penna. Amatullah give Sharia law, if not a face, so each case, a temperamental pen. Och jag tror henne när hon säger att hon inte är något socialfall utan arbetar och betalar skatt. And I believe her when she says she is not a social event, but working and paying taxes. Sådant uppskattar folket. Such estimates people.Här är ett par av hennes bidrag: Here are a few of her contributions: ”Lars , den domen om dagsböter hamnade i en sopptuna och jag erkänner inte era lagar eftersom endast sharia gäller för mig Vi hotar inte dig för livet för att vi tycker inte om dina glasögon "Lars, the judgment-day fine ended up in a soup and tuna I do not recognize your laws, because only Sharia applies to me, we do not threaten you for life because we do not like your glasses
One Swedish Muslim woman who lives just an hour-and-a-half drive from Vilks said she hopes to make good on the al Qaeda threat and slaughter Vilks like a lamb.
"I can do this in the name of Allah, and I will not fail. I could slaughter him in the name of Allah," says the woman who identified herself only as Amatullah. She adds, "If I get the opportunity."
Dressed in a black burqa from head to toe and uttering death threat after death threat, the woman -- a wife and mother -- says she is defending her religion and her prophet if she manages to kill Vilks.
Amatullah has already been fined for issuing death threats. Still, she claims she will never stop taunting him.
