I am entering the Holocaust cartoon contest

I may not be able to blog for a few days. I am very busy preparing my entries to the Holocaust cartoon conference [in case you don't know about it, see previous blog] being sponsored by the Iranians.

I am pouring through my large collections of Holocaust related cartoons. They are pretty vicious and should be very popular with the Iranians.

I bet they will also love the fact that they all come from Arab/Muslim newspapers. Some are in Farsi and don't even need to be translated.

I have been collecting these cartoons for a long time. They are filed under: Antisemitic: Arab-Muslim.

It's strange that no one from the Arab-Muslim world who is demanding respect for their religion ever thought to protest these.

I wonder what the prize is. Here's a thought [with apologies to W.C. Fields]

1st Prize: One week in Teheran with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

2nd Prize: Two weeks in Teheran with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

3rd Prize: 450 days in the former American embassy with those nice hostage takers.

I thought it was 444 days? Maybe, they're increasing the prize value since you get to spend all of those with one of the perpetrators of the hostage taking: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Hope you win!! (Insert sarcasm..... here.)

The Muslim in London who dressed up with a bomb belt to protest at the cartoons turned out to be a convicted cocaine dealer sentenced to 6 years in prison, but out on licence. His local Imam said that he wasn't a terrorist just an idiot.

It would be pretty hilarious if you won.

But I think this particular contest, like the conference's results, is rigged.

Now here it is: the official Iranian Cartoon Competition. Prizes yet to be announced.

The Iranians have announced a "deadline" for this competition. Does anybody know what that exactly would mean?
