Cartoons ... again

When the artifical outrage over the Danish Cartoons was in full flow the Iranian government held a contest for cartoons that lampooned things that they felt teh West held dear. Unsurprisingly most of them where highly anti-semitic (not like you really need a contest to generate many of them in the Middle East). It was supposed to show that there where things that the West would not publish despite our freedom of speech, a concept which failed when the editor of the newspaper that published the original cartoons offered them a full page spread. Well it looks like a group of Israelis have taken up the ball whacked this right back at the Iranians. With extra spin. There is now the Israely Anti-Semitic Cartoons Contest, yep they are calling for cartoons which ridicule themselves demonstrating both what freedom of speech and a sense of humour are. Something makes me doubt that the Islamofascist Mullahs in get the joke.
