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.Here is one of the tamer entries that were submitted:
There has not been mass rioting or pillaging in response to these cartoons. In fact, the response has been to laugh it off and create an Israeli antisemitic cartoon contest! (see: Boomka)
Let's compare the responses to the two cartoons: Muslims riot, pillage, and murder when anyone dare mock Mohammed or question his piety. (something which, incidentally is a real question worth exploring) Jews laugh off the Holocaust cartoon contest and in fact ONE UP the Iranians with a funnier contest of their own!
A people who are strong enough to withstand mockery without resorting to murder (and in fact laugh it off) is a proud and fine one. This is one of millions of reasons why I am so proud to be Jewish.
