“…the Holocaust was a sheer lie”
Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency recently announced the creation of Holocartoons.com, a site dedicated to the Holocaust denial cartoons of Iranian cartoonist, Maziar Bijani. Yad Vashem released the following statement:
The vulgar and cynical approach of the website, a combination of Holocaust denial and distortion, illustrated with antisemitic caricatures, further illustrates Iranâ€™s disregard for reality and truth vis-Ã -vis the Holocaust, Jews and Israel.
Now I don’t really mind vulgar and cynical cartoons, in fact, some of my fave cartoons and cartoonists are vulgar and cynical! And it’s nice to know that free speech in Iran exists, if only in the realm of open discussion regarding the historicity of the Holocaust. What’s most interesting about this whole thing though, is that the site itself is getting so much traffic that the flash intro seems to be stuck at 18%.
Come on dudes! How you gonna wipe Israel off the face of the earth if you can’t even figure out load balancing for your servers? And a flash intro? Really? Even the n00biest Web designer knows that flash intros are stupid. Everyone skips past them. I mean what’s next? A picture of Ahmadinejad’s puppy greeting visitors? Lens flare Photoshop effects on the logo? Apparently, those who have seen the site report that Henry Mancini’s Pink Panther theme song plays in the background.
Good grief. Y’all are the dumbest evil henchmen ever. Iran should stick to what it knows best – shooting unarmed civilians, hanging homosexuals, harassing women, Bahais and Zoroastrians and fucking Lebanon up.
