Iran: Holocaust Cartoons on the Drawing Board

News.com.au is reporting:


"It will be an international cartoon contest about the Holocaust," said Farid Mortazavi, the graphics editor for Hamshahri newspaper - which is published by Teheran's conservative municipality.
He said the plan was to turn the tables on the assertion that newspapers can print offensive material in the name of freedom of expression.
"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," he said.

If embassies were not burning and people dying this appears to me almost laughable. Its not like Iran and other Mideast countries newspapers have not done this before. Here is an example that was done in 2002.

I do not know about you, but it appears to me that some can give it out, but when the tables are turned they can't take the heat.

For years Muslim presses ran anti Semitic cartoons of this ilk. If that is how they want to run their presses, it is fine with me. And they should accept when there are unflattering cartoons about them.
