The reason I haven’t gone all out attacking Islamism in my art is because I feel real fear that someone will slit my throat.”

That is why it is so much easier to pick on the religions of Christians and Jews as they generally don't slit throats any more regardless of what you do, whereas radical Islam will (in some instances) just for saying "radical Islam".

And what does that say about these "artists"? They are willing to "be bold and take risks" as long as there are no real consequences for those risks. Kind of like all of the "truthers" that speak truth to power so boldly in a country that protects the right of free speech. Actually speaking truth to power would be going to Iran and protesting in the street about how radical Islam has become or how oppressive to women it is. But like our "daring" artist above, that could ACTUALLY get one killed so most truthers will leave that sort of truth telling to the other guy.
