Iran Opens Exhibition Mocking Holocaust
The display, showing 204 entries from Iran and abroad, was strongly influenced by the views of Iran's hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who drew widespread condemnation last year for calling the Holocaust a "myth" and saying Israel should be destroyed.
Hamshahri said it wanted to test the West's tolerance for drawings about the Nazi killing of 6 million Jews in World War II.
Well, we aren't rioting and killing people over the cartoons, but I hope Iran doesn't interpret our "mild" response as a go-ahead for the holocaust that they are planning.
The entries on display came from nations including United States, Indonesia and Turkey.
"I came to learn more about the roots of the Holocaust and the basis of Israel's emergence," said 23-year-old Zahra Amoli.
The perfect place to learn about the Holocaust - at a display of cartoons mocking it!
