Danish Muhammad cartoonist has no regrets

The Washington Times reports that the guy who drew Muhammad for Jyllands Posten has no regrets over it:
LONDON -- The Danish cartoonist whose depiction of the prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban sparked worldwide furor said yesterday he does not regret his drawing or its publication.

Kurt Westergaard told the Herald newspaper in Glasgow that his inspiration for the cartoon -- one of a dozen that appeared in a Danish newspaper in late September -- was "terrorism."

[...]

The inspiration for the drawings was, he said, "terrorism -- which gets its spiritual ammunition from Islam."

He also defended the caricature as "a protest against the fact that we perhaps are going to have double standards as for freedom of expression and freedom of the press."
Right on man, you've got guts!

Also, from The Australian (via Dhimmi Watch), Danish editor Flemming Rose has no regrets over publishing the cartoons:
When asked whether he regretted his decision to publish the Mohammed cartoons, in light of the firestorm they unleashed in the Islamic world and threats against him, Flemming said it was like asking a rape victim whether she regretted wearing a short skirt.
Very good discussion.

Yeah, I like the guy. I though for sure that after awhile he would be on his knees begging for forgiveness, but he hasn't. May he remain safe.
