Iranian Paper Runs Holocaust Contest

Iranian Paper Runs Holocaust Contest
(The Jerusalem Post)
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.

Gee, what fun!
