Australia enters Iran Holocaust Cartoon Contest
No, this time its not a hoax! A Queensland newspaper is testing the notion of free speech by entering the Iran Holocaust Cartoon contest.
The Rockhampton-based Weekend Choice emailed a copy of its cartoon to Iran's biggest-selling newspaper, Hamshahri.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) from Israel
It didn't take long for the Israelies to come up with a plan to upstage Iran's holocaust cartoon competition. A SEO contest to make sure the cartoons never see the light of day in Google! Nothing like a bit of Iran Holocaust Cartoon Contest SEO to put a spanner in the works.
Just how many times can Iran, Holocaust and cartoon contest be mentioned on a page.
It didn't take long for someone to register irancartoon.com. Good luck trying to log on though!
The Leunig cartoon some prankster submitted to the Iran Holocaust Cartoon competition is rather good. Not sure if it was ever pubished in an Australian paper.
The whole Iran Holocaust Cartoon competition is a bit dull really. And certainly not very original. No one cares that much. A Princess Di cartoon involving landmines would probably be a lot more offensive. Or perhaps something involving the Pope. But could it be any better than this prize winner?
Here at Rocket we will continue to hunt for the most offensive cartoon. Send URL suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Saudi cleric calls for cartoon trial
Is there no end to this story! Top Saudi cleric, Sheik Abdul Rahman al-Seedes, imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, wants international laws that condemn insults against the prophet and holy sites,
More on those "cartoons"
It appears Muhammed is even on a US Supreme Court building in Washington DC.
The other is of course about money, power and oil.
It's all enough to make me buy another Danish pastry!
Is this the start of the counter-protest?
Keeping the kids safe
The strangest things keep turning up in the e-mail. Here is the latest image to land in our intray.
But Michael Jackson is probably a lot closer than they realise!
Publish and be bland!
Mainstream media is still throwing up images of fanatical Muslims wrecking havoc across Europe in response to a few cartoons, while beating its self indulgent chest and trumpeting about freedom of the press.
Bloggers on the other hand, take a much more direct approach.
Imam Ahmad Abu Laban, the leader of the Islamic Society of Denmark apparently touted 3 extra "cartoons" around the Middle-East while whipping up a fanatical frenzy?
One of which apparently portrayed the prophet as a pig.
It’s not at all like the 12 cartoons published by Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, on September 30, 2005.
And what of the two other cartoons?
No doubt a blogger will find out soon enough. Who needs investigative journalism when you can just Google it!
And there are even more pictures of Muhammed floating around the internet.
This site is probably getting a lot of hits too.
Then again, perhaps it really is the fault of all those violent cartoons kids are forced to watch.
Just who Iran is going to upset with its threat to publish Holocaust cartoons is anyone's guess. Talk about taking the piss! But anything that gives the Turner Prize a run for its money can't be that bad.
Still, she probably has a point. I wonder how long it will be before the likes of Google, Yahoo etc decides to censor these images.
Or is that just a privilege reserved for China?
But wait, there is more!
