Holocaust Cartoon Exhibit Opens in Iran
The Associated Press
An exhibition of more than 200 cartoons about the Holocaust opened
Monday in Tehran as Iran's response to last year's Muslim outrage over
a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad in a Danish newspaper. The
display, showing 204 entries from Iran and abroad, was strongly
influenced by the views of Iran's hard-line President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad, who drew widespread condemnation last year for calling
the Holocaust a "myth" and saying Israel should be destroyed. Masoud
Shojai, director of the host Caricature House, said a jury looked
through 1,200 entries received after the contest was announced in
February by the co- sponsor, the Iranian newspaper Hamshahri.
