Iran’s response to the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad

According to this artical Iran has put up a display of jewish cartoons in response to the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad by the Danish news paper a while back. The big difference here is that the Jewish community isn’t rioting in the streets killing people. I think this little news story is actually a very important demonstration of the differences between ‘western’ culture and the current poor/ignorant mid-eastern ‘islam/arab/musilim’ culture.

It really points out the bigotry that many people *cough*liberals*cough* want us to accept. Here is a quote from the first few paragraphs from the artical, which I didn’t read through completely yet.

The title of the show is Holocaust International Cartoon Contest, or “Holocust,” as the show’s organizers spelled the word in promotional material. But the content has little to do with the events of World War II and Nazi Germany.

There is instead a drawing of a Jew with a very large nose, a nose so large, in fact, that it obscures his entire head. Across his chest is the word “Holocaust.” Another drawing shows a vampire, wearing a big Star of David, drinking the blood of Palestinians. A third shows Ariel Sharon dressed in a Nazi uniform, emblazoned not with swastikas, but with the Star of David.

The cartoons are among more than 200 on display in the Palestinian Contemporary Art Museum in central Tehran in a show that opened earlier this month and is to run until the middle of September. The exhibition is intended as a response to the cartoons in a Danish newspaper that lampooned the Prophet Muhammad and were condemned by Muslims as blasphemous.
