Holocaust Cartoons

In response to cartoons that disparaged and lampooned the prophet Mohammad and Islam itself, some idiot Iranian publisher decided to call for Moslems to send in cartoons making fun of the Holocaust. According to recent reports, the Iranian newspaper has received nearly 200 submissions. ...

Okay before getting self-righteous, consider the following. If such a call were made in the US, how many submissions do you think there'd be? Let's gauge it this way: Iran has a population of 60 million. The US is five times the size (300 million). That means that a thousand people would have to submit cartoons to equal the Iranians.

I do not think that it's inconceivable that a thousand anti-semites would submit cartoons of this kind in the US.
