If you’re unaware of the Iranian Holocaust cartoon contest, then you’ve probably never been here before. Go ahead and catch up here [1].

derkaoui abdellah morocco iran cartoon contestAfter 8 months and 1,193 drawings from 62 countries, a winner has been chosen [2]. Moroccan cartoonist Abdellah Derkaoui, took first place with the cartoon shown here. It depicts a crane with a Star of David sign, putting up blocks making a wall separating the Muslim shrine, the Dome of the Rock, from Jerusalem. The wall has a gate, shown in the distance, that looks like one at the Auschwitz concentration camp, where Jews were incarcerated and killed.

For his hard work, Derkaoui received $US12,000 and bragging rights for a year as winner of a contest that targeted people who hadn’t even drawn the Muhammed caricatures in the first place.

What I find amusing is how the presenter, Culture and Islamic Guidance Minister Mohammad Hossein Saffar-Harandi, praised Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who has described the Holocaust as a "myth".

The holocaust is about as much of a myth as the moon landing. People claim it was filmed in a Hollywood studio. Well I guess all the WWII footage of the concentration camps was filmed there too. Oh, and all the documents that the Germans kept at the camps was forged as well.

I hope this is the last battle in this ignorant cartoon war.
