Well, a group of Jews in Israel have jumped on the Iranian bandwagon.

For those of you who haven't heard, Iran is sponsoring a best holocaust cartoon contest.

In another demonstration of the difference of Islamic Middle Eastern culture and those of other countries, a group in Israel has announced a contest of their own for the best anti-Semitic cartoon.


“We’ll show the world we can do the best, sharpest, most offensive Jew hating cartoons ever published!” said [Amitai] Sandy “No Iranian will beat us on our home turf!”



Sandy is now in the process of arranging sponsorships of large organizations, and promises lucrative prizes for the winners, including of course the famous Matzo-bread baked with the blood of Christian children.


I hope people start to see the light here. Death threats, murder, world riots, and boycotts are the result of saying Islam isn't a religion of peace. We are being terrorized into wanting to legally restrict freedom of expression even further, and if we don't, we'll have to die. The Western world has to become more like theocracies in the Middle East according to these barbarians. Is that cool with all of y'all? Are you ok with our secular society becoming a theocracy?

These guys are great. I mean, what else can be the response to a frickin' cartoon other than humour!
Everyone needs to take their lead and stop taking themselves so seriously!

Good for them. Also in other news I heard that a comedic movie about Hitler(i think staring Chevy Chase) is one of the biggest hits to hit the Holy Land in years. What was the name of that again
Bunch of Canadian comics in it circa 1980s I believe and Hitler is singing and dancing and stuff. God damn mourning memory

Please explain how this is "The Jewish Response To Terror".

Maybe its their response to Iranian newspapers running holocaust cartoon contests, or maybe their response to the protests over the Danish cartoons, but what does it have to do with terrorism?

The Iranian cartoonists, and the protesters are not terrorists.

ArchAngel is right.
the title should have been, "Israel's Response to 100's of thousands around the world burning, rioting and killing because of some faked cartoons displayed throughout the world by a European Imam who was having a boring year and wanted to spice it up, and drag the Jews into the crap to boot."

A little wordy, but more to the point

I have to wonder about this...

Since so many people are excusing the conduct of the rioters in response to the Danish cartoons, what would happen if a group of Jewish people (note I did NOT say Israelis), decided to firebomb some stores owned by Iranians in the US or elsewhere in retaliation for the Holocaust cartoon contest?

Would anyone say they had the right to do so? Of course not. Right away certain people (I won't dignify with names) will say that it's inhuman because the storeowners had nothing to do with it (as opposed to the kfc and mcdonalds owners who must be Danish cartoonists in masks).

Did it matter that Arab nations have been running cartoons about hook nosed jews stealing money for decades? Nah. Did it matter that cartoons by Danish artists run in Danish newspapers has about as much to do with Jews as a ham sandwich does? Nah.

The Jewish response to the uncivilized campaign in Iran at agitating people is to respond as a wise-ass, with some sarcasm, some humor, some wit, and most of all no violence. Perhaps certain others can take a lesson?

Haha, perhaps you're talking about the movie Springtime For Hitler a.k.a. The Producers. It was actually just re-made in 2005 with Will Ferrell.

Riots, death threats, and murders across the world in the name of censorship. People like Hugh Hewitt not putting the cartoons up on their websites or in their publications not because they disagree with the statement, but because they fear for their family's lives. Prime Ministers of nations apologizing for websites that they have, or should have, no control over and pulling them down for fear of boycott or riots. Sculptures being removed from art shows depicting mosques because the artist is getting death threats and fears for their life.

What we are seeing right now is a terror campaign to change Western civilization to be less open and less free, as Arabic countries are. My interpretation of Amitai Sandy's actions is to do this in the face of this terror campaign to demonstrate to the world that non-terrorists don't act this way when they're offended.

Hence the title.

Too bad the Holocaust is not a religious icon.

These Jewish people should make fun of their g-d and characterize him in a way that is totally opposed to their religious doctrine.


Then it would be fair.

Fair? Would you mind informing the rest of us WHAT THE HELL any of this had to do with Jews in the first place?

In case you forgot (or ignored) the initial incident, NOTHING was perpetrated by Jews, and there was no mention of Jews until the Iranian "let's poke fun at dead jews" contest was announced.

And you talk about fair?

a cartoon mocking the murder of one person is worse than a cartoon of any god. a cartoon mocking the systematic slaughter of roughly 6 million jews is far more heinous than a cartoon representing mohammed as a terrorist.

The holocaust is symbolic of the struggles and survival of the jewish people. I think the contest being held in Iran is the perfect example of the immature and childish nature of the leadership over there. what the Israeli's are trying to show the ignorant leadership and their followers is that freedom of speech allows this to be done and since it is allowed in free countries, rather than get upset by it, they will outdo the Iranian contest because everyone knows that an israeli (let alone a jew) would never be allowed to enter the contest and there's no chance that they would win, no matter how good the cartoon is.

Um, the article header? The thing right at the top that says "The Jewish response to terror"?

That Iran is trying to one-up the Danes by making fun of Jews in their newspapers and that some Jewish dudes are taking it as a challenge to insult themselves.

And yes, all of us know that when it comes to self-deprecating humour, Jews rule. Totally. Without question.

Is this actually a help? Um, probably not. Better than getting all uppity about it, I suppose, but making fun of your heritage is different than making fun of another person's religious icons....

The worst, nastiest, funniest Holocaust jokes I have ever heard came from jewish friends. The worst, nastiest, funniest Jewish jokes I've ever heard came from jewish friends.

A Jew can make fun of himself, an Arab can make fun of himself, making fun of each other is where they will start to get in trouble.

Crakeur:

Actually, Muslims FAR outnumber Jews the world over, so the mocking of Mohammed is far more serious.

And the Holocaust is, like, so 60 years ago. It's a shared horror (not only up to 6 million Jews died, but tens of millions of others (Russians, gypsies, homosexuals, retarded, intellectuals, etc).

The Holocaust is an event in the past. The prophet Mohammed is someone who Muslims honor daily in their prayers.

Can you not see the difference? What's worse :

Me making fun of the Crusades, accusing Christians of being murderers back then, or me taking a whizz on a cross?

Sorry for not being clear.

I wasn't saying Jews had nothing to do with this thread, I meant Jews had absolutely nothing to do with this cartoon crap until someone in Iran decided the appropriate way to respond to Denmark's newspapers is to mock the Jews. I'm sure that somehow someway that makes sense using a twisted form of logic.

My point was that criticizing the Jewish response because a holocaust crack isn't as bad as a Mohammed crack is ridiculous because this was not some tit-for-tat issue, but rather completely unprovoked.

Now... had an Iranian paper run a contest mocking Danish cartoonists, fine. They slapped, and then the others slapped back, right?

This was different.

When you legislate how people should act, talk and think that is called Fascism.

Are you condoning the actions of these Fundamentalists Jakomo? You sound like you are... BTW IF Christians or Hindu's were doing the same thing about a similiar situation I would be saying the same thing. Get over with it and get a sense of Humor which is sorely lacking in many Fundamentalist mentalities on both sides of the Atlantic.

No, Djarums, he is not defending them. He can't be. Why, this is the same one who gets up at arms simply for Christians speaking their mind, so you know he isn't defending those who cause much destructiom, choas and death.

Oh, ok. My point was that by having a bunch of Jewish guys make fun of themselves in no way actually helps the situation. It's not heroic, it's not a "Response To Terror".

In fact, it's really nothing. Does nothing whatsoever to alleviate or worsen the situation.


The protestors and the rioters and the violent Muslim uprisings represent MAYBE .05% of the entire population worldwide. That's the truth of the matter.

If you don't understand anything about Islam, then save yourself some embarassment and don't say anything except to ask questions.

(That wasn't to you, Djarums, since you know what you're talking about. It's to the "yo whatever a buncha ragheads" pro-US anti-braincell crowd that jumps on the bandwagon even though they don't even know how to drive)



sardion:

Sure I support their actions. The non-violent, non-arsonist kind of protestor. The ones who gather on the street to protest the cartoon. It's called Freedom of Expression, and it works whether you're white or not.

Sense.

Try to make it.
