Harrak has acknowledged that he lives in the west. This means that he makes use of the west, uses all the benefits its free thinking democracy provides, its freedom of press, its freedom of speech and religious freedom. He says he got his education here , he works here and says :"I live good in the west".

He also must be well aware of the fact that he can draw any cartoon he wishes to draw and expect no one to cut his head off for doing so. He will see no murderous mobs roaming the streets over his drawings and hunting him down.

Paradoxically, he seems to hate the west and it ways ( if you keep reading his lines you note this ) .Why is he still living here? What are his motives???
His friend Amir also belongs in his group. We have yet to hear from Amir as to where he"lives good"

Harrak's words:

".I live good in the west! yes and in the east too. I have two choices, living as western citizen and well paid as I graduated and worked here..and If I want, I can consider my country of origin where I inherited a farm, a big house and a BMW 1992 (78.000 km only)..so I have 2 choices, and you have no choice..born where you are, and will die where you are..so do not feel the pain, you can be smart and try your luck in Denmark or Norway..they are looking for seems like immigrants now... I have to go play tenis now! "

... According to your own admission you wont be going back into poverty. You have listed your wealthy assets, "I can consider my country of origin where I inherited a farm, a big house and a BMW 1992 (78.000 km only)..so I have 2 choices, and you have no choice..born where you are"

We don't want people who hate us living in our midst and pose major threats to our freedom and way of life. If I were to come to your muslim land, get a degree there, get a job, " lived good " and then started making fun of your religion and criticizing your way of life , your govt would clap me into jail.

For your information, I was born here and I live in my western country of origin and my life is full of choices that my country's democracy provides me . You had to migrate here to the west to enjoy my birth right, remember that.
