Not to Be Outdone

As everybody knows by now, a Danish newspaper published some unflattering cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed a few months back, and the incident has been seized on as a pretext for a worldwide orgy of Muslim rage against all things non-Muslim. (Not all Muslims are going along with this nonsense, of course, only those who are willing to let themselves be manipulated by the fascist regimes.) Many in the West have stood firm in defense of freedom of speech against intimidation (again, by no means all).

Suddenly seized with a passion for free expression, an Iranian newspaper announced a Holocaust cartoon contest:
Farid Mortazavi, graphics editor for Tehran's Hamshahri newspaper, said that the deliberately inflammatory contest would test out how committed Europeans were to the concept 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.

From a certain standpoint, this was a stroke of genius. The islamofascists in Tehran enjoy nothing better than tying the liberal West in intellectual knots, and this latest tactic is surely a scheme that Sayyed Qutb himself would have been proud of.

But wait! The mullahs have met their match:
Eyal Zusman (30, back from anonymity) and Amitai Sandy (29), graphic artist and publisher of Dimona Comix Publishing, from Tel-Aviv, Israel, have followed the unfolding of the “Muhammad cartoon-gate” events in amazement, until finally they came up with the right answer to all this insanity - and so they announced today the launch of a new anti-Semitic cartoons contest - this time drawn by Jews themselves!

“We’ll show the world we can do the best, sharpest, most offensive Jew hating cartoons ever published!” said Sandy “No Iranian will beat us on our home turf!”

Heh. The ayatoilets slipped on a banana peel and stumbled into that most potent Jewish secret weapon: humor.

Portland's Barry Deutsch is going to enter the contest! The mullahs are doomed.
