Stupidity without Borders:Iranian paper runs Holocaust contest

Jerusalme Post:Iran's biggest-selling newspaper has chosen to tackle the West's ideals of "freedom of expression" by launching a competition to find the 12 "best" cartoons about the Holocaust, the Associated French Press reported on Monday.

Farid Mortazavi, graphics editor for Tehran's Hamshahri newspaper, said that the deliberately inflammatory contest would test out how committed Europeans were to the concept freedom of expression.

No matter what happens Islamic republic blames every thing on America and Israel! Regardless of the fact that that America and Israel were the only two countries which did not publish the cartoons.

I hope that these cartoons will be published in the west so that supporters of freedom of expression can demonostrate how this right operates: "I hate what you say, but I will fight to the death the support your right to speak"
