Cartoons? Blame the Jews!

We were trashing Bill Clinton the other day for equating "anti-Islamic prejudice" with anti-Semitism, and we spoke thusly:

Thanks Bill, for once again blurring the issue with liberal "objectivity", neutral values, and reverse victimization! When they resort to Jew-bashing to "even the score", will we find you suddenly silent? No doubt....

And what do we get today?

Iran’s supreme leader on Tuesday accused Western newspapers of an Israeli conspiracy for publishing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad....
...The West condemns any denial of the Jewish holocaust, but it permits the insult of Islamic sanctities,” Khamenei said.
The caricatures amounted to a “conspiracy by Zionists who were angry because of the victory of Hamas,” he said, referring to the Palestinian militant group that won a surprise landslide victory in last month’s elections.

And how are our civilized Muslim friends prepared to reply to this obvious Zionist plot?

Iran's best-selling newspaper has launched a competition to find the best cartoon about the Holocaust in retaliation for the publication in many European countries of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad...
The Iranian daily Hamshahri said the contest was designed to test the boundaries of free speech -- the reason given by many European newspapers for publishing the cartoons of the Prophet.
"Does Western free speech allow working on issues like America and Israel's crimes or an incident like the Holocaust or is this freedom of speech only good for insulting the holy values of divine religions?" the paper asked.

Well, beards, bring it on. Cartoons of Muhammed with a bomb wrapped in his turban is going to be nothing compared to the horrific bile that the Islamists are going to put out here. And with the advance publicity, it will not miss the public eye like so much of the virulant anti-Semitism that is doled out daily in the Arab press. And I hope once and for all the true hypocrisy of the Islamists is revealed as they viciously slander the Jews, then demand no one even dare draw their Prophet (of the "divine religion"), lest they suffer from violence.

That's called fascism, boys and girls. And it is on the march. Time to fight them, with everything we have. Now.

And where is Bill Clinton, now that the Islamists have busted out their anti-Semitism and plastered it onto their sleeves? Has he spoken out to critisize the Iranian press, the way he spoke out against the Western press?

Silent, as we expected...

I just recently put a post on my blog pointing out the contradiction the leading newspaper Hamshahri is making against its own President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The Iranian President Ahmadinejad last week said, “The Holocaust is a "myth" that was created by Western powers to justify the creation of Israel in the heart of the Islamic world.” So, if the Holocaust is only a “myth”, I do not think it would be offensive to the Jewish population, or any type of effective retribution.
