“Stuck in the middle with Jews…”

Speaking as a Jew, can I say: how classic is it that Iran is responding to those Danish Mohammed-themed cartoons by sponsoring a cartoon contest about the Holocaust? I mean (speaking rhetorically now, but still as a Jew), how did we get caught in the middle here? Couldn’t they sponsor a cartoon contest about Hans Christian Andersen?

    This type of behavior appears more racist than rseponsible. How does attacking American embassies resolve anything. America is not even involved in the cartoon issue. I think this just shows how irrational, and racist, these individuals are. There are many good Muslims, these ones perpetraing violence are not. I also wonder why more moderate Muslims have not condemmed the violence, I sure hope they don’t condone this racist behavior.

    True. Couldn’t they come up with something that was a little more WASP based? Have they already run out of ways to mock the Great Satan? While not a WASP myself, I could loan them some of my jokes about Murka.

    re: an H.C. Anderson toon–isn’t that The Wizard of Id?
    And I’m guessing they don’t get South Park on cable in Iran?
