Moroccan wins Holocaust cartoon contest

I know you've all been hanging on the edge of your seats waiting for this. A Morrocan 'artist' was awarded $12,000 this week by the government of Iran for the top prize in the Holocaust cartoon contest.

Hat Tip: Allahpundit

Meant to be a response to the Danish cartoons of Islam's Prophet Muhammad that sparked rage among Muslims around the world, the exhibit appeared inspired by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's tirades calling for Israel to be destroyed.

Teheran has several times announced plans to host a conference to examine the scientific evidence supporting the Holocaust, dismissing it as exaggerated. Its most recent announcement came in September during Annan's visit to the Iranian capital, where he said he discussed the cartoon show with officials.

Abdollah Derkaoui received US$12,000 for his work depicting an Israeli crane piling large cement blocks on Israel's security wall and gradually obscuring Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. A picture of Nazi Germany's Auschwitz concentration camp appears on the wall.

The mosque is Islam's third holiest site.


The exhibit curator, Masoud Shojai, said the contest will be an annual event.

"Actually, we will continue until the destruction of Israel," he said.
We can't wait for next year's contest. /sarcasm

May the contest continue for many years to come.

Think of it, they compare Israel building a wall to KEEP out terrorists is the same as leading the palestinians to a death camp, and in a sense they are correct.

If the Palestinians DONT have Jews to murder, it will lead to the outcome that the arab world cannot handle. The palestinians, will murder one another and it will be a death camp, by their own hand.

Some day soon, Arabs will actually not be allowed to "play" with other peoples, since other peoples will tire of the arab want of death, and the arabs will have a arab only city, town or village. Then the murder by and towards each other will solve all the issues.
