UPDATE Feb 13, 2006: HAMSHAHRI HOLOCAUST CARTOONS HERE

Not to by outdone by the Europeans, Iran’s largest newspaper Hamshahri is holding an international cartoon contest to find the best Holocaust cartoons. Farid Mortazavi, the graphics editor for Hamshahri newspaper said,

The Western papers printed these sacrilegious cartoons on the pretext of freedom of expression, so let’s see if they mean what they say and also print these Holocaust cartoons.

I will carry these "comics" just the same as I have carried the Muhammed caricatures. However, I fail to see the similarities between caricatures of Muhammed and poking fun at the attempted extermination of the Jews which lead to 6 million dead.  Maybe I’m missing something, but I think Muslims have some serious issues to resolve within their ranks.

Isn’t it interesting that they decided on the Holocaust and not Jesus? Well, here is the first cartoon complements of the European Arab League. The quality is rather poor, but it gets its point across.
