Iran revs up for its latest Holocaust cartoon contest

This weekend, Iran will stage its third cartoon exhibition about the Holocaust. The images on display, pooled from submissions that came in from various parts of the world, mock a history of genocide and Jewish suffering. The event has garnered global notoriety and is a persistent mark against an Iranian regime that has tried over the past year to show that it’s ready to emerge from international isolation.

Last month, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif attempted to distance the administration of President Hassan Rouhani from the contest. In an interview with the New Yorker, Zarif said the event was sponsored by private nongovernmental organizations and not his government. He then pointed to a history of supposed Western double standards.

    I just love how these clowns try to deflect attention from themselves by using moral equivalency.

    Antisemites have a long history of creating shabby propaganda that always both falls flat on its face and makes its propagators look like major idiots…

    The hypocrisy of anti-semites never ceases to amaze…. Iran wants to have a holocaust cartoon contest where participants enter cartoons about an event that Iran and Mo anti-semites say “never happened”.
    The hypocrisy is best summed up by the statements of some anti-semites that “The holocaust never happened but it’s too bad Hitler didn’t finish the job”.
