FROM Anders Lindberg
Denmark and Sweden Arrest Five in 'Imminent' Terror Plot Today police in Sweden and Denmark arrested five men suspected of plotting an attack on Danish newspapers that published controversial cartoons of the prophet Mohammed in 2005. Few details have been released, but a statement from the head of the Danish Security and Intelligence Service said "an imminent terror attack has been foiled." Anders Lindberg is an editorial writer at Aftonbladet, Sweden's largest newspaper.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?

We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
