Argument: Muslims should not be given exceptional rights and protections
- Artist of "Bomb in Turban" cartoon. "The Author of the Bomb". February 2nd, 2007 -"We were obliged to defend our view on free speech because a religion - or people practicing a religion and maybe professing to the more fundamentalist sides of it - have started to demand a privilege or an exceptional position in the public space. Take for instance the case of the author who couldn't get his book illustrated. We have to preserve our traditions for free speech, and I believe that if we hadn't made the drawings now, then the clash would have come anyway, sooner or later. Then it would have been a film, a theater play or a book. It's something we have to go through, but naturally we have to talk to each other and understand each other."
