Holocaustic Contest

An Iranian newspaper, Hamshahri, is holding a Holocaust cartoon contest, to retaliate against the publication of images of the Prophet Muhammad which have served as a catalyst for mucho violence worldwide.

I don’t draw well, so I spoke to the Tehran publication’s Graphics Editor Farid Mortazavi about whether or not he’d accept a verbal contribution. He enthusiastically encouraged me to participate, and so below you’ll find my Top Ten.

Richard Oxman, rmoxman@yahoo.com, presents the above with no apologies…considering the double-standard that’s been bandied about/enforced on behalf of Jews worldwide, while simultaneously denigrating so much that’s holy to Muslims.
