This week marks the unveiling of Iran’s Holocaust cartoon exhibit. The exhibit features 204 Holocaust-denying and/or America- or Jew-bashing cartoons.
“This is a test of the boundaries of free speech espoused by Western countries,” said Masoud Shojai-Tabatabai, head of the Cartoon House which helped organise the exhibition, as he stood next to the Statue of Liberty drawing.
Basically, the Islamo-fascists are trying to provoke the West into a violent response, so they can say that we are no better than they are, after so many Muslims rioted in the streets after the Danish Mohammed cartoons. They ignore, of course, the fact that the cartoons that sparked the riots were, in fact, blurred copies of photographs given false captions, and another cartoon that was never published by any Western newspaper, rumored to have been released by Islamic Imams in order to gin up hatred of the West.
Of course, the expectation that people across the Western, civilized world will riot over these cartoons is ludicrous. After all, we have to put up with the so-called “modern art” movement, under which artists throw elephant dung on a portrait of the Virgin Mary (after covering much of the portrait with pictures of female genetailia) or submerge a crucifix in a vat of urine, call it art, and are then subsidized with our own tax dollars.
When anti-Islam riots start tearing up the West over these cartoons, I’ll let you know…but don’t get your hopes up. We’ve seen it all already.
