1On getting police protection after filming the controversial film Submission: Part I (2004) "One should not evoke violence by acting fearful."
2On his film 1-900 (1994): "I don't like messages that much. I prefer covering the war between a woman and a man."
3When asked if he might be killed for speaking his mind: "Who would kill the cheerful village idiot?"
4With some friends, you don't need enemies.
