Iran’s response Cartoon

An Iranian newspaper put out a contest to test the freedom of the press by asking for submissions of cartoon that Americans would find offensive. I have seen one. It is of an American bowing before a golden calf made by a Jewish person. The calf is saying “holocaust”. The Headline reads “The Holocaust is a lie”. This doesn’t really offend me. It doesn’t either convince me the Holocaust didn’t really happen. I don’t know how you could construe that Americans worship the holocaust. It does however show the racism of this author. I think the author really doesn’t understand Americans if he thinks that this will upset many Americans. I am sure it could upset a few though.
The cartoons published in Denmark at their worst said that the Islamic faith led people to violence. I think that an appropriate responsal cartoon should show how Christianity in America has led Americans to violence. But to deny the holocaust. It just doesn’t make any sense. They already did that , I wanted something new and more insulting to look at. BE ORIGINAL PEOPLE. Their hate for the Jews is old and boring.
