Iran to publish Holocaust cartoons 

I don’t plan each day’s with a theme, but it so happens that today’s two posts mention .
   Gina Cobb posts that Iranian newspaper has launched a competition for to depict the . Remember Iran’s president is the guy going around saying the Holocaust never happened.
   I was against the publication of the cartoons in ’s , so I feel pretty secure in saying this competition is a load of garbage.
   Will groups and their allies react with and burn down Iranian embassies? Somehow, without igniting fires, the reaction might be quite different. And will the same republish these based on their high-and-mighty banner? Hamshahri might find fewer willing allies through the wire services and cartoons making fun of the Holocaust are hardly unusual in some parts of the .
   I wish the dialogue were more genuine, however. It’s certainly nicer battling things out using than literal battlefields. But the authentic voices remain the bloggers’.
   Politics aside, the guy who comes second with an idea usually doesn’t get the same attention. Anyone know what said when he got on to the moon? I don’t.

Its really unfortunate that Iran has to act so irresponsibly. You shouldn't make fun of someone's suffering - that's jus basic human values and it doesn't get any lower. That aside, Israel or the Jewish faith community had nothing to do with the recent cartoons. Why does Iran have to drag them into everything? And how do they justify their condemnation of the cartoons when they're gonna draw some up too? I thought civilisation had come a long way from tit for tat. Islam as I know it through the Quran teaches and glorifies compassion and forgiveness, not the other way around..

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
