Moroccan wins Holocaust cartoon contest

This should particularly interest Shlemazl. From Jpost (via Jihadwatch)
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.

I don't get it. I know the "real" part is Holocaust denial... but what is the anti-Semite artist trying to say?

Is he/she calling hell a holocaust because the word holocaust means "sacred burning"; and suggesting that it is sacred to burn Israeli's in hell for all eternity?

And what is with the "lies here". That makes no sense; even for a Holocaust denier.

I don't think its a very good anti-Semetic cartoon - it just makes me feel sorry for the cartoonist poor imagination. It doesn't touch any of my nerves, and I can be quite sensitive to anti-Semitism.

Atleast the Boomka ones are funney. I like the secret 11th commandment one! The one mocking Tatiana Soskin with Sharon is also a star! Oh, and this one! And that one! And this one!

All of the Jewish cartoons are just so much better!

Come to think of it, the guy in that cartoon looks like Abbas. What do you think?

Steven,

I agree that the guy in the picture looks like Abbas, though clearly he is meant to be Sharon. As I said, this is one of the tamer pictures. It is also stupid. :-p

Boomka cartoons are much funnier and make the Iranian cartoons look like the pathetic drecks that they are. I have previously written about the Boomka cartoons on this blog - some of them just are flat out hysterical!

No one tops Jews in our ability to poke fun at...anything!

Honestly, the Iranian output was so pathetic, I kind of feel sorry for their lack of creativity.

That's disgusting, but nothing compared to the 3rd cartoon provided in this post:
