Westergaard opposes Koran burning

Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard has come out against the US church that plans on burning the Koran on September 11.

“Satire is provocation. Picasso painted the town of Guernica after it was destroyed by German bombers (in 1937),” Kurt Westergaard told the Die Welt daily in Germany, where he won an award last night.

“Provocation should lead to reflection, to enlightenment, to knowledge. In this case (burning the Koran), this is really not the case,” the 75-year-old said.
