So let me get this straight: Newspapers in Europe–run by those who are NOT Jewish but are descendants of those who allowed the Holocaust to happen–run anti-Mohammed cartoons. These newspapers are also very anti-Israel and constantly, harshly criticize Israel for its restrained response to much worse Islamic violence than these countries are now experiencing in regard to the Mohammed cartoons. But in response, Iran’s loony, extremist President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sponsors his own Holocaust cartoon contest.
Yup, that’s always the response and the solution: Blame the Jews.
Here’s the official DebbieSchlussel.com entry into the Ahmadinejad contest. Our entry, entitled “Holocaust Survivors’ Soup For Herr Ahmadinejad,” is below. I think my Holocaust survivor grandmother and late grandfather, as well as my mother–who was born in Bergen Belsen camp–would probably concur:
One thing the “esteemed” Mr. Ahmadinejad and the rest of the world can count on: Unlike Muslims worldwide, Jews won’t be rioting and committing violence around the world in response to his obscene, obnoxious cartoon contest.
We’d call this a “clash of civilizations,” but can’t because that would assume that there are TWO civilizations. The cartoon contest is hardly the first hint that there are not.
Given all this, you’d think that our government would start getting tough on Herr Ahmadinejad. But you would be wrong. In fact, yesterday’s Wall Street Journal had a front-pager about how those pushing for a hard line against Iran have been pushed to the Bush back-burner, while those advocating an even softer tack with the nutty Islamic Republic–like Clueless Condoleeza–are now setting Bush foreign policy.
How comforting. Maybe when the Iranian nuclear warheads are fully developed and operational, Clueless Condi will realize it’s time to get tough.
Then, it will be too late.
