The winner is a Morrocan who did a cartoon of Jews building a wall obscuring the temple mount, it has a picture of auschwitz on it. He received 12,000 dollars. Nice they have the money to spend on this kind of thing. It was a shining moment in religious and cultural sensitivity. It was in response to the Danish cartoon controversy. Although Iran says it will be held yearly “until the destruction of Israel.” I guess that would render it redundant. The French entry came in second, as usual, so no surprise there. They can’t even win an anti-semitic cartoon contest. The idea was to test Western tolerance and provoke us. And who said Muslims don’t have art?
Hmmm…no riots? No murders of innocent people? No burnings in effigy? No arson? Instead an lesson in free speech and true tolerance. But it goes right over their heads.
