Kurt Westergaard on Surviving an Axe Attack by Muslim Seeking Revenge for Cartoons

January 4, 2010

I do not see myself as a particularly brave man. If the country was occupied, I don't think I would be running around doing sabotage; I would probably be sitting somewhere doing my drawings. But in this situation I got angry. It is not right that you are threatened in your own country just for doing your job. That's an absurdity that I have actually benefited from, because it grants me a certain defiance and stubbornness. I won't stand for it. And that really reduces the fear a great deal.
