B’nai B’rith International’s Name Appears In Iran’s Anti-Semitic Cartoon Contest
B’nai B’rith reiterates its outrage over the disgusting annual Holocaust cartoon contest in Iran. The entries, which mock the Holocaust, celebrate anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and pure hate.
B’nai B’rith International’s name appears in one cartoon which depicts a cash register with the total amount of money shown equaling six million—a reference to the number of Jews murdered by the Nazi regime during the Holocaust. “B’nai B’rith” is written on the key to the cash register, inferring that Jews are responsible for the Shoah, or that Jews manipulate the Holocaust for financial ends.
As we noted last month, the competition started May 14 and continued for the next two weeks. At least 50 countries participated and more than 150 entries were displayed.
These cartoons show the depths and detail to which the Iranian regime will go to spout its anti-Semitism and its distortions of the Holocaust, which include denying the Shoah ever happened. Unfortunately, this type of incitement to hatred from Tehran is all too common, as it continuously concocts lies about the Jewish state and the Jewish people.
