The Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard urges Dutch Politicians to show anti-Koran film.


The Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard said this in an interview with the Dutch newspaper the Volkskrant.

Westergaard says he doesn't understand that Dutch politicians say Wilders should not show his film.

No Danish politicians would act this way.

It would mean political suicide.

Every Danish politician knows, that freedom of speech should never be limited, Kurt Westergaard says.

Westergaard in no way regrets having made his caricature of the prophet muhammed:

It began as, and still is a free speech issue.

Westergaard considers the debate to be a duty for newspapers and cartoonists.

Muslims must accept that

The Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant wrote:

The Danish cartoonist loathes the role of members of the muslimelite, because they compare him with ‘an extremist like Osama bin Laden’.


After the nazis, fascists and communists there is a new totalitarian force threatening Europe, of course not muslims as a group, but a number of extremist’.

Westergaard considers his cartoons completely acceptable and thinks ‘everything’ should be able to be said in democracies as Denmark and the Netherlands.

If muslims feel offended by that, they should ‘learn’ to cope with that.
We live in a tolerant society. This is the way we do this here.
