    Kurt Westergaard, cartoonist, 86

    "was a Danish cartoonist famous for creating the controversial cartoon of a terrorist, although not the Islamist prophet Muhammad as it is often claimed, wearing a bomb in his turban. This cartoon was the most contentious of the 12 Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons (2005), which met with strong reactions from Muslims worldwide who condemned the act, including Western countries. After the drawing of the cartoon, Westergaard received numerous death threats and was a target of assassination attempts" (wikipedia.org).


    In 2021 as in 2015, #JesuisCharlie.
